Principal's Message

  • August 2023

    Dear Families,


    On behalf of the entire team at the Young Explorers TK Academy I wanted to wish you a heartfelt welcome to the start of the 2023/2024 school year! I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones in good health and high spirits as we embark on another exciting journey of exploration, learning, growth, and community building.


    As the proud principal of the Young Explorers TK Academy, I feel honored to be part of this incredibly exciting new endeavor on behalf of the Perris Elementary School District. Our dedicated staff, passionate teachers, and enthusiastic students will make this school an extraordinary place to learn and thrive. Together, we will create an environment that fosters academic excellence, character development, and a deep background knowledge of our thematic learning experiences.


    This year, we are committed to building upon our district’s previous success with TK and offering an even more enriching and engaging experience for all students. We have been diligently preparing for the upcoming academic year, incorporating innovative teaching methodologies, and enhancing our curriculum to meet the evolving needs of our students and our new approach to early education. Our mission at YEA is to improve the school readiness of our students using interactive, hands-on, experience based learning. We will accomplish this by following our vision. Our TK Program is dedicated to shaping the future leaders, thinkers, and changemakers of tomorrow.


    At the Young Explorers TK Academy, we strongly believe in the power of collaboration between school and home. We value your partnership and are dedicated to maintaining open lines of communication throughout the year. We encourage you to actively participate in your child's education, attend school events, and engage in meaningful conversations with our teachers and office personnel. Together, we can create a supportive network that nurtures each student's development.


    To facilitate effective communication, we will continue to utilize our school's website, newsletters, and social media platforms to share important updates, upcoming events, and educational resources alongside our district communication platform, ParentSquare. If you need assistance signing up for ParentSquare please stop by the front office for assistance. We encourage you to stay connected and make use of these valuable resources to stay informed and involved in your child's educational journey.


    On behalf of the entire staff, I want to express our gratitude for entrusting us with your child's education. We cherish the opportunity to make a positive impact on their lives and are committed to providing an inclusive and engaging learning experience. I look forward to personally welcoming each and every one of you at our upcoming back-to-school orientation, where we will have the chance to connect, discuss goals, and address any questions or concerns you may have.


    Thank you for being part of our Young Explorers family. Together, we will embark on this exciting journey of growth, discovery, and achievement. I am confident that the coming year will be filled with great accomplishments and cherished memories.


    With warmest regards,


    Jacqueline Howe
