Eddie Park, Principal

It is with great excitement to welcome everyone to Adobe Bluffs Elementary School, A California Gold Ribbon School!  I am so grateful and proud to be able to lead this school once again with our awesome teachers and staff to provide the most optimal learning environment for our kids.  Our ABES community's success is built on close collaboration with teachers, administrator, students, staff, and parents through partnerships through our PTA and Foundation.  With that said, I encourage all of our ABES family to participate in these organizations to support programs for our school that will promote diversity, academic rigor, innovation, and creativity.  I look forward to another amazing year that will highlight all our students and celebrate their accomplishments. 

Thank You!

Jill Episcopio, PTA President

I would like to welcome all of our Adobe Bluffs Families back for the start of the new school year and I look forward to meeting the families that are new to our school. For those of you that don’t know me, I have two children at Adobe Bluffs and one that will be starting 6th grade at Black Mountain Middle School. This will be our 4th year as an Adobe Bluffs family and I have volunteered in many capacities throughout this time.

I am honored to serve as your PTA President. We have a lot of exciting programs planned for the students this year that will stimulate creativity, supplement academic learning, promote healthy lifestyles, and build our school community. Your support is critical to the success of these programs. Please look for information coming home this week regarding membership and volunteer opportunities.

Wishing you and your students a great start to the school year.

Caroline DeWeese, Foundation President

Welcome back, Adobe Bluffers and an especially warm welcome to our new families! I am looking forward to working closely with Jill as we plan a fun-filled year for your children. The purpose of the PTA is to provide programs that teach our ABES students how to take care of themselves and others. The purpose of the Adobe Bluffs Educational Foundation is to support the teachers and staff by funding big things, little things, and everything in-between. My oldest son is now a junior at Westview High School, and I can truly say that our little school is a wonderful community of parents, teachers, students and staff that continues to take care of each other. We encourage you to support and get involved with both of these organizations. We love your kids!
