A Message from the Principal

It is hard to believe that we are already in the fourth quarter grading period, and soon we will be ending another successful school year. We ask parents and guardians to continue to be partners in your child’s education. As our partners, we need you to continue to instill in your children the value of education. The best way to do this is to make sure your child ends the school year positively, including arriving each day on time and ready to learn, helping them with homework, and talking with them about ideas and topics they are studying in school. Calabasas will continue to provide outstanding teachers, a caring and supportive staff, and a safe and fun learning environment for your children.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by e-mail or by calling (520) 375-8601.


David Y. Verdugo, Principal
