Principal's Message


Dear Jaguar Scholars and Families,


Dear Jaguar Parents and Community,


As principal of Jellick Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for the 2022-2023 school year and I look forward to another great year at Jellick.  We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities to be college and career ready.  At Jellick, we have great teachers and support staff who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning.  Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set individual goals for growth and improvement.  


Throughout the year there will be many opportunities for parents and family members to become engaged with your child’s learning experience.  I highly recommend that you consider volunteering for our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) as the PTA has been a huge supporter of the initiatives and beliefs that the families, teachers, and staff embrace here at Jellick.  The PTA meets once a month and the meetings are open to all who wish to attend.


I am honored to serve as the principal of Jellick Elementary School.  It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.  Please feel free to contact at 626.964.1275 or at [email protected].  Once again, welcome back!  Let’s make it another great year for our Jaguar readers, writers, and mathematicians.
