Every Child, Every Day, Whatever It Takes!

Every Child, Every Day, Whatever It Takes!

Welcome to Stonegate Elementary School for the 2022-2023 school year. As the principal of Stonegate, I feel extremely fortunate and proud to be working with such a dedicated and professional staff, collaborative community, and amazing students. My focus this year is “Every Child, Every Day, Whatever It Takes!”
 
Our goal is to sustain high expectations for students, maintain a quality educational program and provide a positive and caring school environment that will foster individual excellence and lifelong learning for our students. 
Stonegate is a community school. It is a school where the children come first. Stonegate is the sum of all the pieces to the puzzle. In other words, school + student + families = success. If any piece of this puzzle is missing, then the level of success for students and school falters. 
 
This year we will continue to implement the 10 pillars of Lion Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness/Justice, Caring, Citizenship, Honesty, Courage, Diligence, and Integrity. Stonegate will continue to implement an anti-bullying policy, and provide support through social injustice, equity, and inclusion. As a Stonegate family we will continue to model the 3B’s: Be safe, Be responsible and Be respectful. 
 
Each family is a valuable team member in their child’s education. Our Stonegate family invites you to play an active role in your child’s education. For the start of the 2022-2023 school year, we welcome our WUSD cleared volunteers on campus, in classrooms, on field trips, and more.  If you need to get cleared through our WUSD volunteer process please see the steps here or visit https://www.wusd.k12.ca.us/Departments/Human-Resources/Volunteer-Opportunities/index.html. We can help our families navigate the volunteer process, so that you can participate and support our school. Regular communication with your child’s teacher is essential as we believe it takes a village to help each and every student be successful. If we can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact us.
 
We invite you to explore our web site and get to know more about our school! 
 
We look forward to a wonderful year. Together we can make a difference for the children at Stonegate.

Respectfully,

Belinda Rabb-Patterson, Principal
