Welcome to Stonegate Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year. As the principal of Stonegate, I feel extremely fortunate and proud to be working with such a dedicated and professional staff, students and community.
Our goal will be 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 + parent(s) = 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. We will also continue to implement an anti-bullying policy, and we will be educating our students on the appropriate way to handle a conflict. We will continue to focus on the 3B’s: Be safe, Be responsible and Be respectful. Not to mention a number of positive incentives that we will be implementing to encourage good grades, behavior and attendance.
Every Wednesday school will be released early (see the Minimum Day Schedule) to allow our teachers the opportunity to collaborate, lesson plan and plan team activities.
As a parent you are always welcome in our school. We encourage your participation and support of our school and invite you to play an active role in your child’s education. This is the best guarantee for a successful school year. Regular communication with your child’s teacher is essential. If we can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to a wonderful year. Together we can make a difference for the children at Stonegate.

It is the mission of Stonegate Elementary School to ensure high levels of success and a lifelong love of learning for all students. Through a variety of educational experiences, our students will become self-motivated learners and problem solvers. We will provide a safe learning environment where highly-qualified faculty and staff work together with students, parents, and the entire school community to educate the whole child.
Stonegate Elementary School is a school that has numerous opportunities for parents to be involved with the school. Parents are encouraged to volunteer in their child’s classroom, become involved in the School Site Council, Parent Teachers Organization, English Learner Advisory Committee and the monthly principal-parent coffees. The School Site Council meets the third Monday of every month from 4:00-6:00PM in the school library. The principal-parent coffees are held the last Friday of every month from 8:15-9:00AM in the library.
