A Note from Mrs. Baron

Vena Avenue Elementary is a community of learners. As your principal, I am honored to lead a wonderful group of students, teachers, office staff, support staff, and parents. Vena has earned the California Distinguished School Award, as well as the Title 1 Academic Achievement Award. These honors illustrate the hard work and dedication of everyone that makes Vena’s success possible.

Students at Vena receive a strong foundation of instruction focusing on the Common Core State Standards. Our goal is to prepare our students for college, career, and a lifetime of learning. We emphasize critical thinking skills, collaboration, creativity, and communication for all our students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade Five. In addition, we instill in our students a sense of citizenship, by being safe, respectful, and responsible. 

I look forward to bringing my experience and passion to Vena and continue to build upon the accomplishments the school has demonstrated. Please do not hesitate to call me anytime if you have questions, comments, or suggestions. My door is always open, so stop by and say hello.
