Dear Menlo Park Families, Students and Community Members:
I am excited to serve as the Principal of Menlo Park Elementary School – a school that has earned an outstanding reputation for high expectations, academic excellence and a positive, safe learning environment that serves and nurtures all of our students.
Menlo Park’s dedicated, caring, expert staff is committed to inspiring each student to grow, succeed and achieve high levels of academic success. Our teachers work continuously to effect positive change in teaching practices that ensure our students receive the best instruction possible!

We encourage all families to become involved with your child’s education. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments or concerns that arise throughout the school year. Please feel free to visit Menlo, contact your child’s classroom teacher, our office staff, and me. I look forward to partnering with every family to ensure your child has a rewarding, positive and successful school year at Menlo Park Elementary School!
