Dear Adobe Bluffs Community,

Welcome back to School!  I hope everyone had a great summer and energized to start the new school year.  We kick off the school year by celebrating the 25th year anniversary of Adobe Bluffs Elementary School. In addition, NBC news reported that ABES was ranked #1 elementary school in the county of San Diego for 2017.  We are deeply proud of this distinction and it is a testament to the dedication we have for our school.  I am again deeply grateful and honored to be serving as your principal and am excited about what is ahead for the 2017-2018 school year.

This year we have several new teachers and staff members joining our ABES family and we ask that you will welcome them with open arms.  They will be a great addition to our school and will make a positive impact on the lives our students this year.  

• Primary Grade:  Kristine Kapitzke, Taylor McCrady

• Second Grade:  Rachel Moayedi

• ASD Primary:  Brad Leilich

• Health Tech:  Sundee North

• Resource Specialist IA:  Lynd Riberal

I want to again invite you to visit the school and be involved especially by joining the PTA.  I hope once again that there will be 100 percent engagement that supports fundraising and volunteer efforts to supplement multiple programs that benefit ours students and teachers. Thank you and have a fantastic school year!

Eddie Park

Welcome Back Aztec Families! I hope all of you had a memorable summer. I am looking forward to seeing all of you back at school and meeting our new families. This is a special year for our school as we celebrate its 25th anniversary.

I feel honored to serve as your PTA president for a second term. We have a lot of wonderful programs planned for our students this year that will enhance their school experience and further support our teachers and staff. These enrichment programs 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 soon regarding membership and volunteer opportunities.

There's no place like Adobe Bluffs Elementary School!  We are so lucky to be at a school with so many generous, active, and smiling families.  I'm thrilled to be the AB Foundation President this year!  I have been involved at Adobe Bluffs for 4 years, and I have loved every minute here.  I have 2 daughters and a niece at Adobe Bluffs!  Julia is in third grade and Ava is in 1st grade along with my niece Victoria.  It is an honor and a joy to raise money for our sweet school.  I often get asked, "We have to fundraise again?!"  But hey, if we want to keep Adobe Bluffs the number one school in Poway Unified, we have to raise money every year! We want to provide all students with the VERY best educational experience!  The Foundation Board has many new members this year, and we are very excited to support the Principal, teachers and students for a wonderful upcoming year!
