Principal’s Message


Dear NCK8 Families,

Welcome Back! I hope your summer was filled with fun and happy memories with your family and loved ones. I am humbled, blessed, and excited to be the principal of the North County K-8 Center.

We are a “B” school. This achievement is possible because of the hard work and support from each one of you. As a member of our “Bulldog Family” we all have a very important job to do, work that requires commitment, focus, deliberate practice, dedication, and collaboration. I am a firm believer in the saying that it takes a village to raise a child, teachers, teacher assistants, parents, volunteers, office support staff, cafeteria staff, and custodians together with administrators, all play vitally important roles in creating a welcoming school environment that is safe, clean, and conducive for teaching and learning to take place.

This year will continue to be shaped by district-wide reform and safety efforts by maintaining social distancing and wearing facial coverings in addition to implementing the initiatives already in place, while focusing on addressing targeted mental health. Please continue to use the single point entry located in the front of the school by the Main Office. Please remember this is for the safety of our students, faculty, and staff.

I welcome and value your positive energy and constructive, respectful, honest input for our consideration. Please join our PTA, attend our EESAC meetings, DAC/PAC Title I meetings and any events planned. We are in this together!

Thank you for making the choice to work alongside administrators, teachers, and staff as we strive to meet the needs of EVERY Student, EVERY Day, as we do WHATEVER It Takes to ensure your children come to a school that is clean, where they feel safe, and most importantly, where they feel LOVED.
