Dear Parents/Guardians of Wakefield Elementary Students,


Welcome to Wakefield Elementary the home of the Wildcats! We are excited to begin this year with our implementation of the Dual Language Immersion program for our TK and Kindergarten students. The program model will mirror the current model held at Osborn Dual Language Academy; which has been very successful. The goal of the program is for students to achieve bilingualism and bi-literacy in both Spanish and English.


Our goal is to do what is best for students. This includes promoting safety while modeling and teaching good character. Our staff is committed to providing the best education for your child.


We look forward to working with you, as a partner in your child’s education. I value the importance of maintaining positive communication with our students, parents and school community. Please get involved and participate in programs and activities with your child and your child’s teacher.


We are looking forward to a wonderful year as we continue to foster strong academic achievement and promote being a person of character.


Luisa Salinas, Principal
