Principal's Message

Thank you for visiting the New Lexington School website--home of the Dolphins.
The start of school is here and on behalf of the New Lexington Staff, I would like to welcome you back!  We are looking forward to an exciting year.  I am honored to serve as principal of New Lexington School.  Here at our school, our staff is dedicated to the social, emotional and academic development of every student.  We make every effort to ensure a safe and effective learning environment for our students while building tools students need in and out of class.  
We are committed to ensuring the best possible education to ensure that every child can one day go off to college.  It takes years of preparation to compete in college and that begins here in elementary school.  Our curriculum continues to focus on California Common Core State Standards implementation this school year. As stated in the District Expectations, 21st Century skills are incorporated in all content areas and across all grade levels, continuing into 8th grade. 
Technology, as available and appropriate, is used to facilitate and extend learning.
Teaching and learning are focused on increasing depth of knowledge.  Differentiated instruction is used to support English learners, students with disabilities, and advanced learners in reaching and exceeding the high expectations of CCSS.  
Students are expected to write in all content areas.
Like past years, we will continue with early dismissal on Thursdays.  As a district we have created schedules that will be more uniform throughout.  Gates will open at 7:30 with supervision for students.  Please visit our School Schedule on this webpage for ease throughout the school year. Our yearly calendar, the monthly calendar, our new Marquee and parent window located near the front office will provide you with information about upcoming events. 
 Together as partners, we can work to ensure academic successes for your child.  We welcome you to volunteer at school, in the classroom, attending school activities and field trips.  Breakfast in the Classroom is another opportunity for you to assist.  We ask that you check with teachers and the office to follow the visitor procedures in place to ensure the safety of all students.  We have actively been working to begin a PTA at New Lexington.   Back to School Night is Friday, August 31st at 5:00 with Introductions and a parent meeting in the cafeteria.  Following the brief 20 minute meeting, teachers will give classroom presentations at 5:30 and 6:15. 
Please contact the school office or classroom teachers with questions and concerns. During the school day, calls and messages can be forwarded to teachers' voice mailbox and they will return your call in a timely manner.  Please come by or call to discuss concerns and for questions.  If I am not immediately available Mrs. Moya will make an appointment for you or I can return your call.  Students will pick up any lunches brought in for their school lunch or ASPIRE nutrition in the office during their recess or lunch period.
Thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you. 
Ms. Cynthia Flores,
