Principal's Message

Dear Students and Families,

I am Catherine Diaz, principal at Yucca Elementary. I am so excited to start our 2019-2020 school year.  This is going to be a great year! We have so many wonderful teachers and staff members and are looking forward to working with you. I am honored to be working with you this year, and I will work hard to help us all be successful.  We will focus on Boys Town Social Skills, Common Core State Standards, the use of data driven instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of best practices for quality instruction so we can continue to increase student achievement.

Students, I hope you have had a nice, fun, restful summer.  I can’t wait to see your smiling faces and to start our new school year!  Our wonderful teachers and staff here at Yucca Elementary will help you reach your goals this year.  

Parents, my door is always open, and I look forward to working with you.  As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who walks through our doors – teachers, students, and parents, are excited to be here. This encouraging attitude will help us to meet our challenges of academic excellence in a positive and nurturing way. 

I look forward to working with you and having a successful school year!


Thank you,
Catherine Diaz
