Assistant Principal's Message

Dear Serrano Families,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!  I am thrilled to be the Assistant Principal at Serrano Elementary, and honored to be a part of the Serrano Hawk family.  This is a great place to be!  Serrano Elementary is a community united around the families and students we serve.

A little about me! I have been in education for 22 years, and kids are my why-they are the reason I love my job.  My husband and I have six kids, several pets, and full lives.  I love animals, swimming, and doing anything fun with my family.

It is a privilege to work with our students every day, and to support them in achieving success. I believe all students can learn, grow, and achieve, and motivating them is what I love to do.  Here are Serrano we are a community committed to our students, and it takes all of us doing our part to ensure our students are successful. The following are some things you can do to support your child this school year:

  • Make sure your child attends school every day and comes to school on time. It is very important your child is in the classroom every day so that they do not miss any instructional time. Every minute counts!
  • Make sure your child has a regular bedtime and daily routine. Sleep is SO important for a child. Sleep in when a child grows, allows them to recharge their brain, and is crucial for success in academics and behavior. The CDC recommends the following:  School age children need 9-12 hours of sleep per day.
  • Be involved! This is a partnership, and we need you! Participate in school events with your child, talk to your child about their school day, communicate with your child’s teacher, and support your child with all that they are learning.
  • READ, READ, READ! Read to your child, set time aside for your child to read, and ask them about anything they are reading.

Together we are a partnership to ensure our Serrano students achieve academic success to become lifelong learners and contributing members of our community.

In partnership,

Nicole Carlson
