About Our School
Welcome to Elderberry. Our goal is to provide a rigorous, engaging academic experience for all students that is supported by a partnership between the Elderberry staff, families and the community. We will work to provide the foundation necessary for students to be college and career ready!
Our motto is: Be a Champion! We work on ways to be a champion for ourselves and the people around us. Students work hard, build champion character, and strive for academic excellence as they are ultimately preparing for high school, college and beyond. Students are learning to lead healthy lifestyles through morning exercises, being active at recess, participation in school and district sports, and learning about healthy eating through Harvest of the Month. We are a PBIS school and students model our behavior expectations. Elderberry Champions are respectful, responsible, honest and strive for academic excellence.
Elderberry provides a variety of parent involvement activities throughout the year. These activities are publicized through our newsletter, bulletins sent home with students, our display cases and marquee, phone calls/emails, and this school handbook. Parent involvement opportunities include School Site Council, School English Learner Parent Advisory Committee, Back to School Night, Open House, Parent Conferences, Project to Inspire, parent education opportunities and much more. We welcome and encourage your involvement in these activities.
We are proud of Elderberry’s history of continual improvement in student achievement. We are happy to announce that we have received the Gold PBIS Implementation Award for the second year in a row. We are also a Gold Recipient of the Healthier US School Challenge. Elderberry has been recognized as a Gold Ribbon School and Title One Academic Achievement School. Elderberry has been a California Distinguished School, and the recipient of the Title 1 Closing the Achievement Gap Award. We were recognized as a 2014 Honor Roll School by The Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE)! This is only made possible by the tireless efforts of the entire Elderberry School Family working together for students!
