 We have many school goals; this one you can help us with! One of our school goals is to build “community” with families and community members. We have many “DeMiguel Community” events. Please sign up to help out if you can! We communicate with our families in a variety of ways:  emails, Facebook, DeMiguel Website, Connect Ed phone calls, and teachers’ letters. If you have a specific question, please email me at

 We are working on creating a climate that educates all students and allows for flexibility of different learning styles and maximizing potential of every student. There are certain expectations for every grade level--so stay tuned for exciting happenings in your child’s classroom. If you are interested in getting more involved; please attend our PTO meetings.

 The DeMiguel team encourages families to become involved in all aspects of their child’s educational experience. Research has demonstrated that students achieve a higher level of academic achievement if their parents are actively involved. At DeMiguel, we believe that families and staff working together create an environment that enables students’ success. As your DeMiguel faculty we are committed to creating the best educational experience for your child. Let the learning begin! Our classrooms –K-5th will be using Harcourt Reading/leveled readers, Eureka Math, TCI for Social Studies, FOSS Kits for Science,  Engineering is Elementary(1st - 5th),  Rocket Math (optional 1st-5th), and AR reading (1st-5th).
