Dear Scholars, Parents, and Staff:

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce I have decided to resign as the Principal of Twentynine Palms Elementary School (TPES) at the conclusion of the 2021-2022 school year. June 8th will be my last day. This is a decision that wasn’t easy to make. However, I need to be closer to my family on the east coast for personal reasons.

It has been a pleasure serving as the Twentynine Palms Elementary School Principal during the past two years. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with our scholars, staff, parents, and school community. I enjoyed working in Morongo Unified School District (MUSD). We have been able to achieve several things during the past two years at TPES. We have accomplished several things collaboratively that have never been done at TPES previously. For example, we applied for a PBIS Silver Award, we received a $50,000 MTSS School Transformation Grant, and we recently received acknowledgment of a $1,000 military grant from our local Marine Corps Base. In addition, we created two academic Learning Centers for grades kindergarten through six, and we expanded our MTSS interventions greatly to address academics, behavior, social emotional learning, and attendance. All of which had either never been done or to this extent at TPES. We have made academic growth. We have celebrated our scholars throughout the pandemic and will continue to do so this Friday, April 29th as we recognize Scholars of the Month, Golden Ticket winners, PBIS and Attendance Challenge winners.  We will have another recognition on June 3rd and our full awards at the end of the school year.

I am very excited that we were able to accomplish most of these things this year despite being short-staffed at times. This definitely exhibits the power of teamwork and a focus on our scholars and staff and doing what is best for our scholars and each other daily. 

We still have much to do prior to the conclusion of the current school year. We are the only school in the district scheduled to receive a state attendance and testing audit this year. I am pleased to announce we now have an Assistant Principal (AP), Autumn Chapman, who is split between here and Oasis Elementary School. Twentynine Palms Elementary is scheduled to have a full-time AP for next school year. I am continuing to work with Mr. Weller, the MUSD District Office, and the TPES staff to make sure our kids and their best interests are at the forefront. 

I am deeply grateful for all of your assistance and support during my time in MUSD. Twentynine Palms, California will always have a very special place in my heart as my husband served in the Marines and received training at the local base many years ago when we were stationed at MCLB Barstow. I wish the very best for each scholar, parent, staff member, and community member moving forward. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I am able to assist in the future.
