Principal's Message

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!

Melissa Pizano-Grunnet, Ed.D.
