Principal's Message

Lori Moore

August 24, 2019

On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you back for another exciting school year! As I begin my ninth year at Valencia Park Elementary, I am particularly grateful for the talented, compassionate, and tenacious students who show up every morning ready to take on any challenge put before them. It has been a privilege and an honor to serve as your principal for the past eight years.

Over the summer, I took a trip to Cabo San Lucas with my family. It was a great trip, but it was really hot! I ate a lot of delicious food and I was able to finish a novel that I was reading by Robert Galbraith (pen name for J.K. Rowling). I hope you were able to enjoy time with friends and family.

I want to share with you some of the exciting news from Valencia Park:


  • Sage Garden Project
    • $15,000 to fund garden/nutrition educator staffing - to include a minimum of 60 Sage Garden Project lessons, during the school day.
    • A fully-equipped cooking cart, underwritten by The Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation
    • $1,000 gift card to Sprouts Farmers Market stores
