Principal's Message

Welcome to Manuel Esqueda K-8 School, home of the Huskies. Our teachers are committed to providing an exemplary common core aligned instructional program and our focus is student success. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors; staff, students, and parents, are excited to be here.  At Esqueda, we strive to provide a positive, safe, and engaging learning environment filled with a variety of programs and services to meet the varied learning needs of our students.


We are committed to providing challenging educational opportunities for children every day. But to be successful, we need your help. You, as parents, are the most critical part of our school success. You take an active and crucial role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits. Your support provides the foundation for students to come ready to learn. I strongly encourage you to be an active part of your child’s education by making sure they get to school on time and attend school regularly. Please ensure that your child reads each and every night.


As the Principal of Esqueda K-8 School, I pledge to you that our students are our number one priority.  Please know that we are here to support you and your child., and we welcome you to contact us if there is any way we can further assist you in meeting your child's needs.
