Principal's Message

Dear Spartan Community,
 
My name is Veronica Valles Ortiz, and I am proud to have the opportunity to be the principal at Shirpser School. Shirpser is a TK-6th grade school where we have high expectations for all of our students. Our educational program is designed to meet the needs of each individual student and encourages all students to achieve academic success. Our students receive a 21st century education where collaboration, teamwork, creativity, imagination, critical thinking and problem solving are embedded into daily lessons. 
 
In addition, our school community also serves as facilitators for the nurturing and development of every student’s maximum potential. Our campus embraces and practices the 7 Effective Habits for academic and personal success. As of 2019, Shirpser, was recognized as a Lighthouse school. We are one of approximately 300 schools worldwide that have earned Lighthouse Certification. 
 
We are excited about the variety of programs and learning experiences we are able to offer students. To increase the degree of education it is very important that teachers, parents, and administrators collaborate, communicate and work together. We invite you to come to our school, meet with us, talk to us, join the Parent Lighthouse Team and volunteer some time and energy. Your involvement will show your children that you value them and their education. Your involvement in our school is always appreciated. 
 
Sincerely,
Veronica Valles Ortiz
