I'd like to welcome you to Van Buren Elementary School, a California Gold Ribbon School!
As principal, I could not be more proud of the school over which I preside. It is an honor and a pleasure to work with staff, students, parents and community members who are committed to student learning.
Together, we make Van Buren a school of which we are PROUD!
