Our Principal - Mr. DeLuca

Mr. DeLuca

Dear Rolando Park Elementary School Community: 

I am very excited about beginning my 5th year as the principal of Rolando Park Elementary (RPE) School.  As a school, RPE has made tremendous gains over the past 5 years.  We are now a California Distinguished School, and we have won a prestigious America's Best Urban School award from the National Center for Urban School Transformation!  The 2020-2021 school year will bring with it challenges as we position ourselves for continued distance learning due to the Covid-19 outbreak.  I want our community to know that our teachers will be working  hard for our students during this time, and in anticipation for the day (hopefully soon) where we can all be back together on campus.  We will have opportunities for our students and parents to engage in quality learning activities and I am honored to be leading our school and serving our community.  This year we are going to delve even deeper into our school's strong focus on helping our students to reach academic mastery in all core content areas.

I have some exciting news to share with parents about our upcoming school year.  RPE will be keeping our full-time school counselor this school year, this is an incredible benefit for our students!  The support of a full-time counselor is critical to the development (socially & academically) of our students.  

My continuing goal as your principal will be the ongoing transformation of RPE into one of the best quality neighborhood schools in the San Diego area.  I want our neighborhood residents to know that we are open and recruiting new students.  I would like for ALL of the neighborhood students to attend our wonderful little school.  Because of our small size we have distinct advantages over larger schools, namely: we have an intimate setting where teachers really get the opportunity to know their students on a close personal level.  We have an extremely competent, experienced, and talented teaching staff who are dedicated to the important work of educating our students. 

RPE will remain a partner with the Joan Kroc Center and our students benefit from this relationship.  Students are able to learn new skills such as swimming and art from our continued collaboration with this fantastic organization.  RPE has also entered into an agreement with the City of San Diego to develop a Joint Use Grass Field behind our school that will be utilized by our students during the day, and will be open to neighborhood families after school hours.  

Please visit our Facebook page for RPE and like us: https://www.facebook.com/rolandoparkelementary/ please feel free to visit our FB page to learn more about our school and to view events / happenings.  We also now have a Twitter account where you can receive updates: https://twitter.com/RolandoParkElem

In sum, I am honored and excited to serve our students, parents, and community as the principal of Rolando Park Elementary.  I have an open door policy and invite all stakeholders to stop by and say hello…

Thank you, 

Anthony DeLuca, M. Ed
