Principal's Message

Welcome to another exciting school year at Esplanade Elementary!  As the principal of Esplanade Elementary, I look forward to working closely with our students, families, school staff, and community.  At Esplanade, we are committed to providing our students with a safe learning environment that will teach them to think critically, be creative, collaborate, and communicate effectively.  We have a caring and committed staff who are dedicated to inspiring our students to reach their full potential as life-long learners and citizens.  We are also dedicated to challenging and supporting our students by building a rigorous comprehensive program and providing a strong academic foundation. 

As we embark on this journey together, I highly encourage all parents to get involved by serving on our Parent Teacher Association (PTA), School Site Council (SSC), English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC), and other school groups.  Studies show that students make greater academic gains when parents are highly engaged in their education. 

For our latest school information and happenings follow us on Twitter (@EsplanadeOUSD) or Facebook (@EsplanadeOUSD).  Please use the Parent Portal to monitor your child’s progress throughout the school year.  We are here for you if you need any assistance.   

I'm truly excited about the upcoming school year and the great things that will be happening at Esplanade Elementary.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  

Thank you!

Christi Yokoyama, Principal
