Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year at La Veta Elementary School!

My name is Sheryl Anderson-Glass and it is my honor to serve as principal at La Veta Elementary School.  In my short time in this role, I have found the school, as well as the surrounding community, to be first rate.  The teachers and staff are central to the success of this school, but the future success of our school depends upon our ability to work together for the betterment of our students.  For example, the stakeholders who volunteer on committees such as School Site Council (SSC), English Language Acquisition Committee (ELAC), and Parent Teacher Association (PTA), help La Veta Elementary School grow and thrive.  Our teachers continue to work tirelessly to create a foundation for our students to be successful by guiding them through a rigorous, standards-based curriculum.  The pandemic has allowed our teachers to address the needs of our students differently in this online setting by intentionally developing a sense of community with students.  This can be achieved through the implementation of strategies such as social emotional learning while engaging our students daily.

Our goal is to continue providing a positive and safe learning environment for all students. The school climate is enhanced through its special programs, assemblies, and activities; many of which are sponsored by fundraising efforts of our PTA. But the entire La Veta Elementary School staff prides itself on providing a warm and caring atmosphere for the students that is evident in our interactions. La Veta Elementary School is a place where children feel safe while learning. This allows us to maintain high expectations for all students.

We look forward to continuing to foster these partnerships while watching these Vikings sail into a bright future.

Thank you,
Sheryl Anderson-Glass
Interim Principal
La Veta Elementary School
