Welcome to the Armona Union Elementary School District Community!

It is my privilege to extend warm greetings to you on behalf of the Board of Trustees and the entire staff! We are excited to have the opportunity to actively engage students in the learning process. We are a district located in the central San Joaquin Valley of California. We are comprised of three beautiful school campuses, Armona Elementary School (TK-4), Parkview Middle School (5-8) and Crossroads Charter Academy (K-12) and serve approximately 1,100 students in our rural community. Our motto is Where Kids Come First and we strive daily to be the place that meets the academic, behavioral and socio-emotional needs of ALL students. We are also committed to attracting, retaining and supporting our staff to meet the current and future needs of our community.

We work together as a Professional Learning Community (PLC) to reach the four goals in our Local Control & Accountability Plan (LCAP): Increase the educational outcomes of ALL students, provide a safe instructional program setting for students, staff, and parents, increase parent awareness regarding the importance of pupil engagement, provide students with diverse educational opportunities

The focus of our PLC work is to work as a team to answer the four essential questions of PLCs: What do we expect students to learn and be able to do? How will we know they are learning? How will we respond when they don’t learn? How will we respond when they already know it?

We invite our parents and other stakeholders to partner with us in the journey to accomplish the Mission and Vision of our District! During the time students are with us, we will utilize our human and financial resources to provide rigorous and relevant learning experiences for ALL students. The relentless pursuit of our mission will result in accomplishing our vision to prepare ALL students to be productive citizens in their community and beyond. LET’S GO PANTHERS COMMUNITY!
