Principal's Message


Welcome to a new and exciting school year! I hope everyone had a great summer, and now are ready for new challenges in the upcoming school year. I  would like to welcome all new staff, parents/guardians, and students to Tierra Amarilla Elementary School. I would also like to welcome all former staff, parents/guardians, and students back to school! Please visit our school and classrooms to observe the dynamic education your children are receiving from an amazing staff. I have an open door policy, and I welcome all parents, guardians, community members, and all stake holders to our school. Have a wonderful year! Below is the vision for our school:


Tierra Amarilla Elementary has a focus on the academic, emotional, and social growth of each student. Through the use of data analysis, student programs and learning are assessed and adjusted to meet the needs of individual students. Our school has created a culture that allows for student to feel safe and secure in their working environment. Collaboration among students and staff is a central theme at Tierra Amarilla Elementary.


Through the use of Professional Learning Communities in our school, teachers focus on the growth of the individual child to ensure they are prepared for  middle and high school. The staff at Tierra Amarilla Elementary welcomes programs and presentations from our community members which allows for students to envision future job opportunities. All parents are welcome to visit our school at any time to support our children and their learning.
