Dear Cutler Elementary School Parents and Community,

                As principal of Cutler Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome each and every one of you to and even GREATer School year! This school year our focus is to be GREATer in everything we do.  Here at Cutler school we will create an enriching learning environment that engages each child. We have an excellent teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge and an outstanding support staff, who work in different capacities to support your child’s learning.  Parents, as your child’s first teacher, we need and welcome your support and cooperation.  Along with your assistance, I am committed to refining our current practices in an effort to foster an optimal learning environment for all that will indeed make an even GREATer School Year!      

The year begins with a few additions to our staff.  These additions include: Amanda Hiyama – Academic Coach/2nd grade Teacher, Mayela Macias – Dual Immersion Kinder Teacher, Jacqueline Benavides - 1st grade Teacher,  Dalia Nunez – K-2 Resource Specialist.  Welcome to Cutler Elementary!              

Additionally, we encourage you to become active in our Parent Teacher Association (PTA).  The PTA is a wonderful way for you to share ideas and support our school mission.  Other ways to get involved include: volunteering in the classrooms, chaperoning field trips, and participating in our parent committees such as School Site Council (SSC) and English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC).           

Finally, I sincerely believe in a school environment that is collaborative in nature and draws on the strengths of all stakeholders.  Working together makes a difference in the lives of our students.  I look forward to working with all of our College Bound Wildcats, parents, and the community of Cutler Elementary School.
