Principal's Page

Hello Coronado Community,

It is indeed an honor and privilege to be the Principal at Coronado Elementary.  Even though I have only been here a short time, I know that Coronado is a special place to send your students.  The professionalism of the office staff and teachers has been amazing.

We offer a variety of academic and social programs for both advanced and struggling learners. Each day, students are engaged in Literacy, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Our goal is to prepare all students for a successful future in the 21st century and beyond. Our hope is for each child to leave Coronado skilled in critical thinking, problem solving and perseverance. Along with academic preparation, our students are encouraged to develop skills in kindness and confidence. Instruction is aligned to Jefferson County Schools Bridge to Curriculum.

Students at Coronado Elementary participate in a variety of activities including student council, before and after school clubs, choir, band and orchestra, music programs, art shows and much more. Access to multiple programs supports comprehensive community building, cooperation, and encourages students to explore multiple passion areas.


Parent participation and input is valued at Coronado Elementary. To have a successful school it is imperative that parents participate in their students' education. We have a very active PTA that is involved in multiple school-wide activities, fundraising endeavors and school support efforts. Our PTA meets the second Monday of the month at 6:00 pm in the library.

Partners in Education is our school accountability committee and serves as a parent and community advisory board for leadership at Coronado Elementary.  In the fall we offer a back to school meet & greet and parent/teacher conferences, science fair, 4th - 6th-grade choir, and at least one community event sponsored by our PTA. In the spring we have another round of parent/teacher conferences, talent show, carnival, silent auction, and field day. We communicate in multiple ways through Friday Folders, websites, via our school website, and a weekly Sunday Message with a phone call and email. Our staff is eager to work with parents for the benefit of their students.

Finally, Coronado Elementary is a school that cares about kids. We strive to prepare children to be active citizens who contribute positively to their communities, we SOAR. Our Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) program teaches students our expectations for behavior. Coronado students are safe, respectful and responsible. Your child will be treated with respect at Coronado. Children will learn from their mistakes and discipline will be based on making positive choices and interacting responsibly with others. Together we are committed to the success of all children!
