Welcome Stockard Coffee Students and Families,

On behalf of the Stockard Coffee Team, I’d like to extend a warm WELCOME to our new families and a WELCOME BACK to those of you who are returning. I hope your summer was filled with fun and relaxation and that you made a lot of wonderful memories with family and friends. We all look forward to the 2022-2023 school year. 

This is my fourth year as the principal of Stockard Coffee Elementary and my 21st year in education. The past few years have been challenging for all of us. I am so grateful for the flexibility, care, and patience of our parents and staff, who worked together to support our students. Despite the challenges we faced, we saw academic growth last year and I could not be prouder.  

As we move forward into the new year, there are many ways to help students be successful at school. Strong family engagement has always been a critical part of student success at Stockard Coffee Elementary. At the end of last year we opened our school to parent volunteers. We look forward to continuing to welcome parent volunteers and offering family engagement opportunities.  Other opportunities to connect to the school include our school website ,email, and AERIES. 

Another key to student success and an important way in which you can support your children is through encouraging good attendance. Students should be at school on time every day and avoid missing school as much as possible. We encourage vacations to be taken during breaks from school. Our school counselor and I will continue contacting families, as needed, to help support them with improving their students’ attendance.

This year, we will resume our school-wide focus on social emotional learning and behavioral expectations. We will continue teaching weekly lessons from the Second Step social emotional curriculum. We will involve our entire staff with supporting these lessons this year to ensure that all of our staff is familiar with the vocabulary and strategies we are using to support our students. 

I am excited to see the academic, social, and intrapersonal progress our students make during the 22-23 school year. Thank you for your continued support as we work together as a school community inspiring our students to strive for and achieve their goals. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and call the office. The phone number is 574-5500, Ext. 5150 and email is nalvarado@sylvan.k12.ca.us. Once again, welcome back! I am honored to serve as your principal.

Go Superstars!!
