Pepper Drive Families, 

I am so excited to kick off this school year. This is my 5th year as a Principal in the Santee School District, and my 2nd year at Pepper Drive. Pepper Drive School has a well-established and strong community that comes together to support our kids. We host family events like Family Reading Night, Math Night, Mad Science, and musical performances. This year, we are bringing back our in-person Back to School Nights and Lunch on the Lawn in the Spring.

Our students know that Pepper Drive is a place with high expectations for academic and social-emotional learning. Our monthly TIGER Awards ceremonies celebrate students who exemplify our TIGER traits of Teamwork, Integrity, Goals, Empathy, and Responsibility. 

I will be holding parent workshops and book study opportunities this year for families to be a part of the decision-making that shapes our school programs. If you are interested in serving our school on School Site Council, PTA, District School Board Advisory Committees, or any other groups, please contact me. We would love to have you.

This is going to be a year of learning and connecting. You can expect to have your student bring home an on-level reading book every week, and for all TK-8 students to engage in learning tasks that require them to engage, participate, reflect and make connections.
