Principal's Message

Dear Students, Parents, Teachers and Community Members

I am pleased you are visiting our Aldama Elementary School website. I would like to share some information about our School Family. 

Aldama Elementary School is a true one-of-a kind school. It's a place where dedicated teachers and staff put the educational needs and well being of their students above their own, working long hours to make sure their students are prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

Aldama is a place where parents step up every day to volunteer in classrooms, facilitate the Valet drop-off, chair fundraisers, and help to keep the school beautiful and safe. They join committees and generously donate their time and money to support this remarkable school. Aldama is a place where people care about one another, and will do all they can, whenever they can, to help. And then there are our amazing Aldama students: smart, kind and beautiful – inside and out.

Aldama is a California Distinguished School due to the joint efforts of teachers, parents, administrators and of course our students.  We are also a school that offers the Dual Language Program in which students are taught in English and Spanish.  Our dual program is a challenging program that emphasizes student achievement, academic competence and social acceptance and understanding.

Aldama Elementary opened its doors in 1926 and has been providing its students and their families with a warm and academically challenging elementary school experience ever since. 

To the new students and their families, welcome to an extraordinary elementary experience. To returning students, families, faculty and staff . . . 

Welcome back for another amazing year at Aldama where we support teachers, inform parents and educate students. 

Best Regards,
Laura E. Gutierrez
