Welcome Back Lafe Nelson Bulldogs!
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
As your new principal, I am super excited to welcome everyone back to our recently-renovated campus, and I expect that this is going to be a GREAT school year. Along with the rest of the staff, I appreciate the opportunity to share in your child's learning experience, and I am dedicated to working with you to meet their learning needs.
A little bit about me...
I have spent the majority of my educational career serving SUSD as a Language Arts, Social Studies, and Yearbook teacher at SMS. I have a great passion for teaching and learning, and while I will miss being in the classroom, I am looking forward to my new role as your principal.
As both the school principal and a parent of one of our first graders, I understand the importance of holding high academic standards for the cognitive, social-emotional-development, and civic responsibility of our students, and I am dedicated to a culture in which our teachers and families work collaboratively together toward our district's mission that "all students will become contributing and responsible citizens."
I look forward to getting to know each of our students and their families, so please come visit me or introduce yourself when you see me on campus or out in the community. Lafe Nelson was a family I was eager to join; I am proud to be a part of, and I believe our future looks bright...and so the adventure begins.
D'Anna O'Mera, Principal
