A Message from the Principal

It is with pleasure that I share with you the Board approved appointment of Mrs. Sarah Johnson as Principal of Peachland effective July 1, 2008.  Sarah came to the Newhall School District from the Los Angeles Unified School District where she taught for four years.  She first came to the Newhall School District in 2005 as a classroom teacher at Wiley Canyon School.  She was soon promoted in October, 2006 to Assistant Principal at Newhall Elementary School.  She will be the summer school Principal at Old Orchard this July.  I am sure you will be seeing Mrs. Johnson around here soon – I know she is looking forward to getting to know all of you and seeing for herself why we remain so proud of all that Peachland is and stands for.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support to me and Peachland the last four years.  It truly has been an honor to work with and for so many wonderful families.  Peachland has always meant a lot to me and it was rewarding to be able to be a part of the education of your children.  I am now looking forward to my change in schedule and ability so spend more time with my family.  Because of the professional and talented staff here at Peachland, your children and those yet to come will continue to benefit from a program that develops academic skills and knowledge, strength of character and communication skills.  I wish all of you the very best.
