A Message from our Principal

Welcome Conquistadors!

It is with great excitement that I start my journey as the new principal at Francisco Vasquez de Coronado Elementary School. I have great honor at the opportunity to serve this community.

I look forward to the new school year as we continue to build an environment where student success is the first priority. The foundation for a great school begins with our partnership and a shared commitment to academic excellence for all students. 

Here at Coronado, we are dedicated to providing the best education possible for your child. Please do your part by ensuring your child arrives at school every day and on time.

On behalf of the staff at Coronado, I would like to wish all of you a wonderful school year!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
