Principal's Welcome Message

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Leonard R. Flynn Elementary School. I'm delighted to be at Flynn where I have worked as the Instructional Reform Facilitator, and now as your principal.

For the past few years we've been working on a more consistent and meaningful collaboration with families, and with the community at large, on behalf of our students. We hope to continue the collaboration with all of you. We will also continue with our focus on high quality instruction through the lenses of Equity & Social Justice.

Three of the main areas our teachers are working on are full implementation of Balanced Literacy, Inquiry through Sciences /Social Studies and implementation of the Common Core Curriculum for Math & Language Arts. We are committed to continue the work around equitable and restorative practices in the social/emotional areas, and to that end, teachers will be trained in Tribes to foster community and resolve conflict.

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and to working with our community on behalf of all students.  

Ricky Mendoza
