Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!
Welcome back to school!  I am very much looking forward to another fantastic year at Orange Elementary.  All Orange Elementary school students are leaders and students are empowered to take responsibility for their own learning and take on leadership roles through the Leader in Me process based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. All students are taught the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in order to give them the skills necessary to be successful in all aspects of their lives while at Orange, after elementary school and beyond.

Habit 1:  "Be Proactive" teaches students to take responsibility for their own lives.

Habit 2: "Begin with the End in Mind" teaches students to set goals.

Habit 3: "Put First Things First" teaches students to prioritize and work before they play.

Habit 4:  "Think Win-Win" teaches students an abundance mentality so they can get along well with others.

Habit 5:  "Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood" teaches students the skills of empathic listening.

Habit 6:  "Synergize" teaches students to collaborate effectively for better results.

Habit 7:  "Sharpen the Saw" teaches students to live a balanced lifestyle where they take time to take care of themselves.

Teaching students the 7 Habits and affording students leadership opportunities is how Orange Elementary is preparing students for college and career.  You can expect that at our assemblies and events that student leaders will be running the show!  

This school year is my 8th year as Principal at Orange, and I served as the Assistant Principal prior to that.  We are excited to have you as part of our Bengal Family.  Personally, I live within the Corona-Norco School district with my husband and three boys.  Our family enjoys traveling, any kind of water sport, visiting Lake Havasu, and watching our boys play club volleyball.
