• Message from the Principal

    Welcome to the 2020-2021  school year!




    Mrs. Ninon Wilson, Principal of DeMiguel Elementary School


    July  2020

    Dear DeMiguel School Parents/Guardians,

    I hope this letter finds you enjoying the last few weeks of summer with family and friends as the start of school will soon be upon us!  I am so excited to begin the 2020-2021 school year so that we can continue to build on the previous year’s successes!  

    Mission Statement and Core Values:

    DeMiguel School parents are critically important in helping us continue to move towards excellence.  As such, it is important to know our mission and core values so that you can reiterate those messages at home and join us in working towards this meaningful endeavor. The mission of DeMiguel School is to promote curiosity, creativity, and opportunities in learning as we strive for excellence. Our core values include promoting appreciation of individual learning styles, skills, and talents to maximize learning and growth; treating all people with dignity, kindness, and respect; and fostering intellectual curiosity and risk taking through creative problem solving. Our science, technology, engineering, arts, and math will be a continued focus this year.


    Recognition for DeMiguel’s Finest:

    Here at DeMiguel School, we have been diligently working to prepare for the first day of virtual remote learning on August 17th.  A huge thank you goes out to our custodial staff for getting our building in pristine condition. Thank YOU Melvin who worked tirelessly to clean every nook and cranny of DeMiguel School.  It looks amazing!  Our school administrative assistant extraordinaire, Lori, has put in countless hours inputting data into our system, registering students, ordering materials, and getting DeMiguel School organized so that no stone is left unturned before opening day.
