Dear parents,    

On behalf of the board and the wonderful staff here in the district, I extend a warm welcome to all families in the district this school year, especially our new incoming kindergarten families.

The Los Gatos Union School District has the reputation for being one of the finest districts in the State. Educating the whole child, which includes an excellent academic program, social emotional development, and the arts, is a priority in the district.

Each school has a thriving Home & School Club that provides enriching school site programs/events, while the Los Gatos Education Foundation (LGEF) works to provide funding for staff positions like art, music, and specialists. Both of these critical parent-run organizations infuse much needed funding into our schools, as education funding in California falls in the bottom tier in the country.

I encourage you to get involved this year in the revisioning and development of our 2025 Strategic Plan.   There are several opportunities through attending focus groups and surveys to provide valuable feedback.

I encourage you to visit our website for important information about our schools and educational program.

Yours in education,

Paul Johnson
