Principal's Message

"College Bound and Panda Proud!"

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  

This year we are offering full-day transitional kindergarten and kindergarten for all of our students.  The formative educational years are so important and so we are giving our youngest learners the gift of time.  Our "Little Pandas" will have a full day to master standards and to do the hands-on art and play activities that all young learners need.


The goal of our students is to master grade-level standards in an engaging and supportive learning environment.  Peralta's teachers and staff work hard to meet the learning needs of every child at the school house door.  We offer programs from reading interventions for students needing a little extra assistance to GATE instruction for gifted students.  District and site budgets provide bilingual tutors, instructional assistants, Special Day Class and Resource Specialist services.  Every child deserves a quality education. 


Parents, please help us by taking an active role in your child's education.  Review your child's homework and sign his/her agenda each evening.  There are opportunities for involvement through PTA, School Site Council (SSC), English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC), and Career Day.  If you are unable to participate in this capacity, you are welcome to attend our awards assemblies, Panda Picnics, AVID parent meetings, Parent/Teacher Conferences, Harvest Festival, Bingo Night, Valentine's Sweetheart Dance, and our End of the Year Celebration.       


It is going to be a terrific school year.  If you would like a "Front Seat" to our events and activities, follow us on Twitter.  @PeraltaPandas
