END OF YEAR NEWSLETTER
On behalf of the Del Mar Staff, I wish you a wonderful summer filled with reading and a lot of exercising!!!!
In August we will be welcoming you to an exciting new academic year at Del Mar Elementary School, home of the Dolphins!
For those of you that will be entering our school for the first time this fall, I would like to share about our learning environment!
Del Mar Elementary is truly a special place. The students of Del Mar rise up to their academic and personal potential. They demonstrate positive attitudes, are intellectually inquisitive, and true seekers of knowledge. The Del Mar Elementary School Teaching Team carries compassion for students, enthusiasm for teachable moments, and a love for the teaching profession. Our office and custodial staff are warm and dedicated professionals who make each day the best it can be for all students.
Del Mar Elementary School delivers an excellent educational foundation, filled with motivating and engaging academic experiences! I know with your support, this year will be an exceptional and uplifting learning experience for your scholar.
We know that the true road to success lies within the partnership between our school and families. We absolutely need you to become involved with your child’s school experience this year through being a part of Our Home & School Club! Our Home and School Club is a dynamic parent group (similar to a PTA) that supports our school and scholars through multi-cultural events and activities!!! We cannot do all of the extras that make a school great without your help!!!!!!
In order to move all of our students forward, we must have your support, involvement, and time. I want you to regard Del Mar as a place where you are comfortable and feel at home. Remember that together we are GIANT!

We all have so much to celebrate! Our school was honored in a special ceremony on May 5th! We have been given the distinction and honor of being a State of California Gold Ribbon School! We have received this honor due to our specifically focused work in the areas of reading and writing.
We call our multifaceted teaching practice REACH. This practice features a Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop model, with additional support through a Walk-To-Learn RTI program, Intensive Literacy Intervention, and Accountable Talk. We are closing the achievement gap as our students attain California’s high reaching Common Core Content and Performance Standards.
Our goal is to REACH each student!
