Dear Empresa Families:

Welcome back to the school year! As I begin my seventh year as your principal I am honored you have chosen to be at our amazing school. I look forward to our year of learning as we embrace each student's interests, values, and talents.

Our students are our first priority and we always put their needs first. Being student-centered is a concept deeply embedded in our school culture and educational philosophy. At Empresa, our mission is to inspire a love of learning for every student with an emphasis on integrating the performing arts. Our teachers and support staff are here to serve.

Our school hours:

Grades TK - 5th 8:00 a.m. - 12:51 p.m. MONDAY AND MINIMUM DAYS

Grades TK - 5th 8:00 a.m. - 2:18 p.m. TUESDAY - FRIDAY

I ask for your support by sending your child to school every day, encouraging him/her to read for pleasure each night, and by asking your child to share what they learned at school each day. Parent participation is a key component to helping students succeed in school. Please consider joining our PTA or Music Foundation and discover ways you can contribute. Together we can create a place where students can learn and grow.

Thank you for joining me as we embark on another year of inspiring the unique talents of every student within Empresa's tradition of excellence. Empresa ROCKS!

Your partner in education,

Cheree McKean, Ed.D.

Proud Principal of Empresa Elementary School
