• Dear Morgan Elementary Families,

    It is with the utmost excitement that I welcome you all to the 2023-2024 school year. We are thrilled to welcome you back to school!  I want to take this opportunity to share some important information and express my enthusiasm for this school year as the new Principal at Morgan Elementary School. 

    First and foremost, I want to welcome our new and returning families and students to Morgan Elementary.  Our school community is built on providing a safe and positive learning environment for everyone. Together we can ensure each student has a strong foundation to become a productive citizen and life-long learner, through a vital system distinguished by: innovative learning environments, learning opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. (S.T.E.A.M), Effective family and community involvement, cultivating academic, personal, and social development, and celebrating cultural diversity. 

    Our vision is to continue integrating these skills into their learning and, along with other proven teaching methods, adopt a curriculum that makes us proud to call ourselves a Morgan STEAM School. We aim to prepare our students for the fast-paced changing advancement of our digital world and provide our students with lessons in coding, robotics, Google Suite, and Digital Stories. We also remind our kiddos to be patient with themselves and implement a growth mindset. We teach them to celebrate their small successes and to believe in the power of "Yet."  We encourage our students to follow our school-wide expectations of being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe while on campus and away. 

    We believe communication is the key to every successful partnership, so we would like to encourage all of our parents to join us via REMIND 101 app so that you may remain informed about the exciting things happening here at Morgan. Parent engagement is important to the Morgan learning community, and we encourage your active participation throughout the school year. This is the most effective way to communicate with your child's teacher, receive important updates, and message me, your principal, Mr. De La Cruz! We will organize events, family nights, and parent-teacher conferences to facilitate effective communication and collaboration.  You are invited to all parent advisory meetings and we appreciate your input to promote academic achievement for all Morgan Mustangs.  

    I would like to extend my appreciation for your trust and support this school year. Together we can make this year an academically successful and enriching experience for our students. I look forward to a year filled with academic growth, achievement, and positive learning experiences. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child’s educational journey. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call (909) 820-7883 or email me at jdelacru@rialtousd.org. I look forward to working with you and your child to ensure he/she has a safe and productive learning experience.


    In Partnership, 


    Jeremiah De La Cruz,
