Our Principal

Ibarra FamiliesDear Ibarra Families and Community,

Happy New Year. I am so excited to be your principal. Here at Ibarra, we know that our school is a fantastic place to learn and grow. We believe that we are ALL learning together every day. We believe in making mistakes and trying again. Persevering and getting to the other side of a challenge makes us High Five Iguanas!

As the principal, I am at your service. I will support our community by listening, learning with you, and being in classrooms. When I visit our classrooms, I expect to see students who are tracking the speaker, listening to each other, responding to what has been said, and asking questions. I look forward to experiencing the wonderful work our students are doing and I enjoy when students visit my office to read to me, share their artwork, show me a great test score, or do a presentation. My door is always open.

Ibarra is a School with Heart!" This means that we all promise to:

Treat everyone kindly, even if he/she is not exactly like me.

Use words and actions that make our school better each day.

Help each other in and out of the classroom. Do something great for someone or our school each day.

Report anything that is not good for our school or us to an adult.

. Notice when someone, an adult or another student, does something wonderful. Thank him or her!

. Speak up for yourself and others. Take part in your own learning and ask questions!

. Be a student/teacher/parent/staff member with "heart!"

We expect great things from our students and offer a challenging and supportive environment to help them to reach their goals.

We expect and appreciate your feedback. Your input is important to Ibarra's success. I spend a great deal of time in classrooms working with students, so if you cannot catch me, we will set up a time to meet. I believe that together, we can make our school the best in the city!

I am truly grateful to be your principal.

I remain,

At your service,

Principal Patton
