Ms. Familia
  • Dear Parents, Students, Teachers, Staff, and Community Stakeholders,

    It is with great excitement and a grateful heart that I join the amazing Boulevard Heights family as your new principal.  I am humbled and honored by the opportunity to serve a school with such amazing students, dedicated staff, and a supportive, tight-knit community. It is truly my privilege to be a Boulevard Heights Bobcat!

     For over 25 years, I have been deeply committed to serving students in my roles as a teacher, staff developer, curriculum coach, and administrator. My passion and dedication are rooted in my belief that every child can excel and achieve their full potential when we foster a love for learning by providing a rigorous, nurturing, and caring environment that meets his or her individual needs. We need only identify our students’ varied strengths and talents to unlock their incredible potential. As such, it is my commitment to each student to be an advocate for their success. As Rita Pearson stated, “every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be”.  Proudly, I join our Boulevard Heights family in implementing our Bobcat PRIDE: Promoting academic success, Respectfully and Inclusively with Dedication for an Excellent Education.

    Please trust that the amazing educators charged with instructing our young learners are prepared and committed to meeting the challenges presented by our current educational reality. They are motivated and inspired by their passion for teaching and learning and are eager to build strong partnerships with each family that will facilitate student growth and development.

    Our collaborative efforts and steadfast commitment to our children’s success will ensure a productive and successful 2023-2024 school year. Thus, I invite you to take an active role in our school community by attending family nights and SAC meetings and by joining our PTA.  I am eager to meet our students and the entire Boulevard Heights community and look forward to building strong relationships and collaborating with all of you throughout the school year.  Please note that we will have the opportunity to meet at the community meet and greet to be scheduled prior to the beginning of the school year. Having stated this, know that I have an open-door policy and encourage you to see me if I can be of assistance or if you’d like to stop by to say hello throughout the summer.


    Katherine Familia

    Proud Principal
