From the desk of the Principal

Welcome! I am Tara Kim, proud principal of Sierra Vista Elementary School, home of the cubs! I am thrilled to join the amazing staff here at Sierra Vista!

As I embark on my first year here at Sierra Vista, I am energized and committed to making a positive difference in your children's lives. My priority is to ensure that our students have a safe, positive learning environment where the quality of 21st century instruction is second to none. Our staff will continue to participate in ongoing professional development and deliver research-based, relevant instruction to students. We are committed to meeting the individual needs of all students’ academic learning styles and social-emotional well-being.

At Sierra Vista, we are proud to be an Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)  elementary school. The AVID program supports our purpose, values, and goals in preparing ALL our students to be future ready through college and career readiness. AVID instruction is embedded into daily lessons that build a college going culture, organizational skills and focused note-taking from kindergarten through 6th grade.

Our success is dependent on a strong home-school relationship. We value and encourage participation in your child’s education. Sierra Vista has a very active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC), School Site Council (SSC), in addition to many other volunteer opportunities. As always, stay in communication with your child’s teacher(s) for additional opportunities. Families are always welcome and your continued support is appreciated!

Thank you for entrusting me with your amazing children! I am confident that together, we will make wonderful things happen for the students at Sierra Vista!
