Principal's Message

Dear Families and Soaring Eagles,

I am so excited for the 2022-2023 school year and can't wait to see our Eagles SOAR!

This year “We’re Reaching for the Stars" and our staff is ready to engage our students in a world of discovery and learning.
This year is a fresh start for everyone - from a complete modernization of the classrooms, to a revamped one-way parking lot, to an academic program that includes SOAR time where every student gets what they need to succeed, to dedicated PE, as well as Music and Art - there is discovery around every corner.
Students…get ready to blast off into a new beginning!

To share a bit about me: My husband and I have two adult daughters and a son-in-law, all graduates of CUSD schools. Wanting to be a teacher my entire life, I taught elementary school and served as an Assistant Principal at Middle School where I supported students through the transition from elementary to teenage years. My experience as a parent and educator have given me a true understanding of what students need to be successful in school and beyond.
I cannot express enough how honored I am to have the opportunity to work alongside the teachers and families at Ambuehl Elementary. Our teachers are dedicated to providing the best educational experience for your child, and we encourage you to join us by getting involved any way you can. Children grow up faster than we think, and memories made here will last a lifetime.
Thank you for entrusting every one of us with your precious children; we do not take this responsibility lightly. If you have any questions, please look for me in front of the school, send an email, or come by the office, my door is open.
