Dear Wiseburn Families and Friends,

I am thrilled to start my first year as the Superintendent of the Wiseburn Unified School District.  Every day while walking through the District Office and while visiting our campuses I am greeted by amazing students, incredible teachers, an invaluable support staff, and a community that is committed to our exceptional school district.  Wiseburn always strives for excellence as seen in the high-quality work that happens on a daily basis, year round -- all of which positively impacts our students.  In Wiseburn, kids come first! 

The first months of school are always exciting as all our students engage in the next step of their educational journey.  Some will leave their parents/guardians for the first time and enter our TK or Kindergarten programs, some will navigate the transition from Cabrillo Elementary School to become a Burnett Bulldog, others will experience middle school for the first time as 6th graders as our newest Dana Dolphins.  No matter where our students currently fall on the spectrum of the TK-12 continuum in Wiseburn I am reminded each day that we are a unique district that offers a top-notch education at every step.  When our students graduate from the Da Vinci Schools they have participated in more than 12 years of a high-class education that has prepared them to be college and career ready. 

There have been many improvement projects completed during the summer and our facilities look amazing!  The custodial and maintenance staff have battled the hot summer to usher in our students to beautifully kept and safe school sites.  The Wiseburn High School Home of the Da Vinci Schools opened the school year for the first time at the beginning of the academic year. We are excited to see Phase 2 of this construction project, to include a state of the art gymnasium that boasts 6 volleyball courts and 3 full-size basketball courts, near completion in the coming months.  Just to the north is the City of El Segundo-Wiseburn Unified School District Aquatics Center. This beautiful aquatics center will be a flagship venue in the South Bay and an opportunity for our community to enjoy a public, Olympic-sized swimming pool.  We will send out important information regarding class registration, fees, and more as we receive updates. 

On behalf of the entire Wiseburn Unified School District team, I want to thank you for entrusting us with the education of your precious children!  Have an action-packed and learning-filled 2018-2019 school year.
