    Dear Mission Families,

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I can easily say I fell in love with Mission the moment I started working here last year. We have such great students, a beautiful diverse community of families, and excellent teachers. Not to mention, we have the most beautiful campus in Redlands! 

    Our amazing teachers are committed to helping students thrive socially, emotionally, and academically! Mission provides a safe, nurturing, innovative learning environment with tailored instruction while also accelerating learning for ALL!

    Throughout the year, exciting things are happening in our classrooms and our campus! We encourage you to get involved by joining our PTA, volunteering, and/or simply having daily conversations with your child(ren) about the school day. You will find at Mission we support families on and off campus, so please feel free to contact our school. I look forward to working with our families, students, and staff to continue all the wonderful traditions that make Mission so special. I cannot wait to create new memories at Mission. Together, we will make it a great year!  

    I feel so lucky and honored to be able to continue the wonderful work that makes Mission so special. Please do not hesitate to contact me, I am here to serve you. Thank you so much for choosing us as your school. Remember, together we are, “Building Better Futures, NO Excuses!”
