Principal's Message

Welcome to Merlinda Elementary School!  I am proud and passionate about the students and community we serve and the educational experiences we provide. I look forward to this school year and am hopeful that this website provides you with relevant, timely, and useful information about the many exciting programs and events we offer.

This school year we will continue our efforts to improve student achievement. Accelerating student achievement is our priority, and our teachers and support staff have been diligently working all summer to prepare for your children to arrive!   In addition, we are constantly reflecting and refining our instructional practices to be the best we can for each one of our students, and to ensure all students are college and career ready. We are also committed to ensuring all students are equipped with the necessary tools and resources to promote creativity, character, citizenship, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.

We highly encourage and expect parents and community members to be engaged in our school as partners in educating our students. Parents and community members have the opportunity to join our Parent Teacher Association yearly. Our PTA does an excellent job supporting the students and staff at Merlinda School. Also, parents have an opportunity to participate in the School Site Council and the English Language Advisory Committee.

Thank you very much for visiting Merlinda School website. I look forward to an opportunity to serve you and your child.

Dr. Johnson-Evans
