Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, and Families,

    My name is Mr. Aguilar and it is with great excitement and pride that I write this welcome letter introducing myself as the newly appointed Principal of San Joaquín Elementary School. I consider it my responsibility as your principal to make sure that ALL STUDENTS are receiving high-quality instruction, a well-rounded educational experience, as well as any support necessary to succeed. I will do everything in my power to ensure that ALL our students at San Joaquín Elementary leave through our doors ready to transition to High School where they will meet the requirements to be college, career or community ready. Below is some important information for all parents and students.
