Principal's Message
 At Vejar, we have taken on the voyage to help ensure our students achieve their best in the classroom and on the playground. We truly believe in each child's academic, social, and emotional development. Making Good Decisions, Acting Responsibly, Solving Problems, and Keeping Calm and Learning on are the universal expectations to promote a positive school climate for our students and families. It is our belief that our Raccoons need to demonstrate these throughout the campus to be successful scholars. 

Our school counselor, Ms. Vasquez, is dedicated to working with families and the local community to foster a school climate that promotes collaboration. Her efforts help develop a positive climate for our students. By providing such a climate, our students will develop the necessary academic and social skills to contribute to our classrooms and society.
