Welcome to the Eldridge School Website!
Hello Eldridge Families and Community,
I am honored and excited to be the Principal of such a unique and wonderful school tucked away in a great community within Hayward. Eldridge is made up of Approximately 300 students and 40 staff members. We are committed to meeting the needs of all students by creating a safe and welcoming learning environment in which students are engaged, supported, and challenged.
We are very excited to announce that Eldridge Elementary has received a grant to work towards being a Full Service Community School. As a Community School we will be creating a Community School Site Team which is composed of families, neighboring community residents , students, union partners, teachers, staff members, site administration, and other community partners.
Community Schools are centered by the following framework:
4 - Pillars: Expanded learning time and opportunities, Integrated student supports, Collaborative leadership and practices, Active family and community engagement
4 - Cornerstone Commitments: Asset -Driven and Strength-Based Practice, Racially Just and Restorative School Climates, Powerful, Culturally Proficient and Relevant Instruction, Commitment to Shared Decision Making and Participatory Practices
As a Community School, Eldridge will engage in a collaborative decision making process to create a shared schoolwide vision while continuing to create a safe learning environment while increasing learning opportunities for all students.
I look forward to working with you all as we work through this process together.
