Principal’s Message

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome Back! I am incredibly delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy as we renew our commitment to excellence in education. My staff and I are ready to provide a safe and engaging learning environment where every child can learn. I look forward to working with you and your children.

As we begin this new school year, our skilled and devoted staff is already eagerly planning and preparing for students. Our administrative team, office personnel, and custodians have spent the summer ensuring the building is safe, secure, and sanitary for the WPK-8 Family. Additionally, PTSA is gearing up to provide family-centered events and programs for this school year. We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goal of cultivating and nurturing active, engaged, and independent learners.

The safety and wellbeing of the students continues to be our top priority. Established guidelines are in place to yield success. It will be important that we are all proactive in adhering to these security measures. The Parent/Student Handbook can be found on our school website,, along with other important information.

We encourage you to stay in touch with staff, to ask questions and make suggestions. Open communication is paramount. WPK-8 will utilize the Wildcat Information Hub located on the school’s webpage along with School Messenger to keep you updated on the latest news, announcements, and information. Working together, we will provide every student the opportunity to reach their maximum potential because we believe in them. We thank you for your trust and partnership.

Warm Regards,

Carla D. Rivas
