    “The Home of Koala-ty Education



    Dear Cresthaven Families,

    Welcome back to Cresthaven Elementary! We appreciate your trust and confidence in our teachers and staff. At Cresthaven, we are committed to providing our students with a high-quality education that meets your child needs while doing so in a safe environment, embedded through Kindness, Opportunity, Acceptance, Loyalty, and astute Awareness: the KOALA way!

    We are committed to educating our students to be responsible citizens and prepare them with the
    necessary tools to be lifelong learners. The staff is committed to the pursuit of academic excellence for ALL children! Enrichment opportunities such as debate, morning news team, chorus, and safety patrols are a few of the opportunities offered at Cresthaven.


    As the Principal, I implore you to participate and get involved by becoming a volunteer, joining the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), serve on our school-based committees, and/or participate on our School Advisory Committee (SAC). These opportunities will engage you in our community life on our campus.

    In addition, I would like to encourage you to visit our website on a regular basis. The website will provide you with up-to-date information regarding current and future events, district policies, links to important resources, and general information about our school. Additionally, you will have an opportunity to explore, get involved, and communicate with staff by simply clicking on the contact list.

    We also provide our own aftercare to further support our families.

    I look forward to working with our scholars, alongside our new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Perez-Allen. To the extent that either of us can be of service, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    A KOALA-TY experience is waiting for you!
