Principal's Message

Michelle Bonilla


    Crestmore Families,


                   Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I feel privileged and overjoyed to be appointed principal of Crestmore Elementary. I look forward to working with our amazing Crestmore staff and parents in order to continue the positive learning culture that Crestmore is known for. Together with our Assistant Principal, Cynthia Lopez-Jimenez, we will ensure a safe learning environment where students are supported academically, socially, and emotionally through focused, rigorous instruction that meets the needs of every student.

                My goal is to work as a team with our Crestmore staff and community in order to ensure our students are ready to compete at the university level and attain professional success when they graduate from Colton Joint Unified. Crestmore’s commitment to our students and community is the following:


    • Build relationships
    • Believe that ALL students can succeed
    • Focus on rigor and engagement
    • Build student inquiry and risk taking


                We hope that parents will partner with us this upcoming year and help make this year memorable for their child. Together we can make amazing things happen. Here is to a great 2018-2019 school year!
