Hello Dear Parents/Guardians,
I'm Christopher McDonald and it is an honor to serve the Val Verde community. This is my second assistant principal assignment I was at Lasselle Elementary where I began my administrative career. I taught to 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Tomas Rivera Middle School for 12 years.
I look forward to working with your child as well as each of you. I believe a family/school partnership is necessary for student success. I encourage you to become involved in school activities and committees. Our School Site Council (SSC), English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) and Parent Teacher Association (PTA) are always in search of members. Your time and services will be positive for your child as well as the school.
We recognize that parents are their child's first and most important teachers, we need your cooperation and involvement to provide your child with the best education possible. Take time to review and/or talk with your child about his/her school experiences. Your interest and concern in their school progress will motivate them to do their best. Also, please maintain contact with your child's teacher as well as support staff members to establish a successful home/school connection.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or stop by and see me!
Thank you for your dedication and support!
Val Verde Elementary
