"Paws: Positive Attitude Will Succeed"

Theresa Dutter, Principal

Welcome to Meiners Oaks Elementary, a family-centered school.

Our motto at Meiners Oaks is “Positive Attitude Will Succeed” (PAWS) and we encourage parents and family to practice this viewpoint at home.

We believe it takes a community of teachers, staff, volunteers and parents to equip students for the new century. To this purpose, we provide shared efforts to educate and to foster responsible and considerate future citizens of the world. We also encourage our students to embrace learning opportunities in the visual and performing arts, technology, fitness and nutrition, and conflict resolution.

We invite all parents and community members to get involved in supporting our students’ success.

Welcome letter in Spanish!

Letter from the Board and administration addressing the safety of our students and, in particular, undocumented immigrant families.

Click to review the letters in both English and Spanish that were mailed on Friday, April 21, 2017 to secondary students' homes and placed in elementary students' backpacks.  The text was written in response to statements made about undocumented immigrants during the presidential campaign and soon after the election. About half of the school districts in the County have adopted such positions speaking directly to this issue.
