A message from Principal Jessica Gomez

  •  Jessica Gomez, Principal

    I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2017-2018 School Year!  Summer has come and gone and now it is time to continue with the excellent work we do here at Alice Birney.  We were busy this summer preparing for another amazing year. New reading and writing textbooks arrived and were distributed to classrooms, classrooms and offices were deep-cleaned, we held our first-ever Summer Reading Program every Wednesday and hosted "Story Time and Crafts with the Principal" during our Summer Reading Program as well.  Over 100 books were checked out and read this summer!  

    This will be my sixth year at Alice Birney and I am thrilled at the opportunity to continue to get to know all of you and to continue to engage in the educational process together.  The elementary school years are critical times of development for students and families alike, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this year successful.  I look forward to continuing to build relationships with each and every member of the Alice Birney community.

    At Alice Birney, we pride ourselves on being a school that focuses on the whole child. We have an amazing staff who believes in our students and focuses on what's best for kids because KIDS DESERVE IT! Access to and the use of technology is something we pride ourselves on. Our teachers are true lead learners when it comes to the latest research on how to best integrate technology into the classroom curriculum. We are a Google Apps for Education district and Alice Birney strives to maximize these tools to prepare our students for the future.  

    It is a great honor and privilege to serve as Alice Birney's principal. We have an amazing group of students, parents, staff and community.  We are a team that works together to ensure our students succeed.  I encourage you to stay connected with us through this website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  There are so many amazing things that happen at our school every day; we don't want you to miss out! Feel free to contact me with any comments, questions or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you.  

    -Jessica Gomez, Principal
