Principal's Message

Dear Lemon Grove Academy Elementary Students and Families,

As a school community, we focus our endeavors on the academic, social, and emotional growth of our students. We accomplish this through engaging lessons and support as students strive towards mastery of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and grow to become successful members of a global community. 

Our school day starts at 8:15am and ends at 2:40pm.  Students and families are encouraged to come out and get the day started on the right foot with the morning physical activity program.  Physical activity stations take place from 7:40am to 8:10am every morning.  Students who arrive to school prior to 8:00am will be expected to participate. 

We are committed to making Lemon Grove Academy the center of our community. Our free health clinic, in collaboration with UCSD’s School of Medicine, provides medical evaluations for families and dental screenings and care for our students.  Additionally, the school pantry program offers healthy foods free of charge to families bi-weekly.

I encourage you to be a part of the amazing things that are happening on and around Lemon Grove Academy.  Attend Parent-Teacher Association, School Site Council, and/or English Language Advisory Committee meetings, volunteer in your child’s classroom, join other parents during Friday Volunteer Day to complete teacher projects, help out with the many school events and community service days, or find a way to become a part of the school.  We assure you that you will enjoy being a part of the backbone of our school; our incredible parent volunteers. 

Lemon Grove Academy is not a typical school; rather, it is a fast paced school with many programs and events.  Every Wednesday, we send out a weekly newsletter.  We encourage families to anticipate receiving this and to create a place for it to be posted in your home every week.  This will help ensure that your family does not miss out on any of the events.
