Assistant Principal's Message


    Mrs. Cruz

    I am so excited to welcome all of our students and families to the 2021-22 school year.  I am honored to continue serving as the Assistant Principal at Silver Lakes Elementary.

    This year we will not be returning to normal, rather we will be returning to BETTER!


    It is my greatest belief that ALL students can learn if given the appropriate tools and great instruction.  I am confident that the faculty and staff of Silver Lakes Elementary will work diligently to meet each child's social emotional and educational needs by ensuring that our instruction is engaging and rigourous. I look forward to working with both parents and students to ensure that all of our students develop a life-long love of learning in a safe and nurturing environment.


    I look forward to working alongside the AMAZING community that is Silver Lakes Elementary School.


    Educationally yours,


    Lourdes Cruz
