Principal's Message

Greetings, Signal Hill Families,


It is with a great sense of pride that I introduce myself as the new Principal at Signal Hill Elementary School for the 2018-2019 school year. I come to Signal Hill with 22 years of experience as a Teacher, TOSA, Vice Principal and Principal in the Long Beach Unified School District. Most recently I served as Principal at McKinley Elementary in North Long Beach.


I am excited to join the team of teachers and staff members at Signal Hill. The successes our scholars have experienced over the years is inspiring. The 17-18 school year saw increases in SBAC proficiency, Benchmark scores, FRSA scores and results on the CORE Survey. I look forward to the opportunity to help continue the upward trend of student progress.


In addition to myself I would like to introduce the following staff members joining the Signal Hill team this year:


  • Marianne Lara – School Nurse
  • Stephanie Richardson – Speech/Language Pathologist
  • Thomas Sopp – Psychologist, Family Learning Center
  • Dana Workman – Counselor, Family Learning Center
  • Teresa Mora - Counselor, Family Learning Center
  • Sophia Toc – Lead Teacher, Head Start


I know you’ll help me in welcoming these folks to the Signal Hill Family.


As this year unfolds I look forward to meeting each of you and working with your children. I believe that as we build a strong home/school connection we are providing our young scholars with the best opportunity for a successful future. I invite you to become involved in your child’s education in as many ways as possible. I encourage you to participate in the numerous activities and school events that we have scheduled for the upcoming school year. Be sure to check your child’s backpack each day and visit our school website to remain informed as to the events on the school calendar. My door is always open, so feel free to stop by and introduce yourself. Our office staff is also here to answer questions and provide valuable information.


Please mark your calendars for the night of Wednesday, September 26. We will host our annual Back-to-School Night on that day. More information will be forthcoming.

With Halloween almost here, the Long Beach Press-Telegram is again launching its Scary Stories contest for Long Beach area youth. Winning entries – both stories and artwork – will be published in the Press-Telegram on Halloween. The rules are the same as last year.  There will be three age categories for stories and drawings: elementary school (K-5), middle school (grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12).

Here are the rules:

• The deadline is Monday, Oct. 15.

These meetings help the school district to strategize programs to support Pacific Islander students.  View the attached flier for details and a schedule of meetings through September.


State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.
