Dear La Joya Families,
Welcome to La Joya School! We are looking forward to working with you this year, as we strive to offer the best services and opportunities to meet your child’s needs and goals. We are committed to providing a solid academic program in a safe and caring environment. In addition, we will continue to offer enrichment activities which enhance learning and development.
As we begin our new school year, La Joya will continue to focus on helping students develop the academic skills necessary to navigate through higher education. We will also focus on helping students develop healthy habits and skills promoting respect, integrity, compassion, and perseverance. Family participation in schools is in integral component of school success.
I am looking forward to working with all of you this year. My hope is that we continue to grow and challenge ourselves to always do what is in the best interest of our students. Thank you for trusting us with this awesome responsibility.
