Principal’s Message

Dear Parents & Guardians:   

   Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Captain Jason M. Dahl Elementary School! I feel it is truly an honor to be your principal. I am a Central Coast native, born and raised in the agricultural community of the Santa Maria Valley. I have spent my 28-year educational career being both an elementary teacher and principal in the Orcutt Union School district and am so excited and  fortunate to be able to join your community this year. I believe that with parents and staff working  together as a team, towards the same goal, every child will succeed. We must keep children first in all we do! A school-community with this common commitment will stand ready, willing and able to do what is needed for educating the children. I know Dahl School is such a place!

            As your principal, I will reach out to you and ask for support, suggestions and involvement. I will encourage you to join our team, our school family, and our PTA, where preparing children for their future is our number one priority.

            I invite you to be as actively involved as your schedule will allow. Dahl School welcomes your support and volunteerism. Through teamwork, open communication and a dedication to continuous learning, Dahl Elementary School will be a place where children and their families continue to be part of a positive learning environment.

            Once again, welcome back, and if you and your children are new to the Captain Jason M. Dahl School community – welcome! I look forward to partnering with you and am confident this will be a terrific year for us all!
