Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members,

Welcome back to another exciting school year for students who attend Los Lunas Schools.  Every Student Matters, Every Moment Counts, is not just a vision statement, motto or words to put on the website; they are a belief in, and more importantly, a commitment to, the children of this community.  As I look back on my tenure in this District, I am humbled by all that the Los Lunas Schools Community has given me and am proud to be able to serve this community and school district.  I cannot think of any greater reward, tangible or intangible, than that of seeing former students who have overcome struggles of life, become productive members of society. 

It is our intent to help our students overcome obstacles, beliefs and attitudes that may stand in the way of their success. We have no time to waste in helping kids realize their own potential and build self-confidence that allows them to realize dreams. 

Despite the fact that high stakes testing has taken over a lot of time spent in New Mexico Schools, we are committed to keeping  students motivated, and to provide educational opportunities that are interesting, engaging and life changing. It is our desire to meet students where they are, and will help them develop the needed skills, both socially and academically, that will enable them to meet the demands of the 21st Century.  

The Los Lunas Schools will make every effort to provide a world class education to the students who walk through our doors.  As a school district, we realize that we must represent the positive values and beliefs of our community, parents, and students, and as such, welcome your feedback and input.  Please know that, as always, decisions will continue to be made in the best interests of all of our children. 

Please join us as the Los Lunas Schools makes its mark on Valencia County, the State of New Mexico, and beyond. We will continue to provide a structured and focused education for your child, served by positive, dynamic, talented, and dedicated adults, who truly believe that Every Student Matters, Every Moment Counts.

Thank you for all you do to support the success of our students as we begin this exciting, successful, and challenging school year.
