Principal's Message

Welcome to Manuel Esqueda K-8 School. We are excited to send our second class of 8th graders off to the surrounding high schools and we wish them well on their way. During the summer, we have a handful of summer enrichment classes going on and also we continue to run our Engage 360 program. For some of our students entering kindergarten, Padres Unidos is hosting a pre-kindergarten program to get these energetic students ready for school. At home in the summer, it is important that all students continue to read everyday. We also encourage you do get together with your family and visit museums, go to the beach or park, and explore the world around you. Before you know it, summer will be over and we will be back for another great year of learning.

We have some exciting new programs that we will be implementing next year and we look forward to seeing you all very soon.
Have a great summer!
Kevin Tonai
