I am Dr. Karon Schnitzer, and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Pacific Beach Elementary School. As the proud principal of this esteemed institution, I am excited to share our commitment to fostering a vibrant learning environment that empowers students to discover their voices and explore a world of possibilities.
At Pacific Beach Elementary, we take pride in our dedication to student leadership. We believe that every child has a unique voice that deserves to be heard. Through various leadership opportunities embedded in our curriculum and extracurricular activities, we strive to empower our students to express themselves confidently and contribute meaningfully to their school community.
One of the cornerstones of our educational approach is the integration of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activities. We recognize the importance of preparing students for a future that demands creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Our STEAM initiatives provide hands-on experiences that inspire curiosity and innovation, allowing students to explore and apply their knowledge in real-world contexts.
Pacific Beach Elementary is not just a school; it is a family where every member plays a crucial role in shaping the educational experience. WE are fortunate to have some of the most incredible teachers and staff here serving our students. Together, we will continue to strive for excellence and provide a foundation for our students to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
I look forward to a successful and enriching school year ahead. If you have any questions, ideas, or concerns, my door is always open. Let us work hand in hand to create a positive and engaging learning environment for our students.
Warm regards,
Dr. Karon Schnitzer
