Principal's Welcome

Hello Estudillo Students and Families,


Welcome to Jose Antonio Estudillo Elementary,

a Leader in Me School


Welcome to the 2019 -2020 new school year!  I am extremely proud to start my 4th year as Principal of such an AMAZING school and honored to be a part of the SJUSD Community.   Great things happen at Estudillo Elementary as students are making academic gains and developing the essential skills to become a great future Leader.   

At Estudillo, our mission is to educate and empower ALL students to be leaders! Our dedicated teachers and staff truly believe in our mission as we strive to make our this is a reality for all our students.  Through our collaborative efforts, we are intentional about ensuring equity for all students. 

As we embark on Year 2 implementation of Leader in Me, we are excited about expanding our leadership focus to engage our families. We know how important it is for our students to see the support that a strong home and school partnership can provide.  By creating a focus on Leadership, our school culture will continue to improve and our students are not only learning the academic lessons they need but also acquiring the social-emotional skills they need for their future.

I hope you are as thrilled as I am about the year ahead!  I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and your family as we begin the new school year together.
