Message from the Principal

Dear Family of Julia de Burgos,


I am looking forward to the 2016-2017 school year for what will be a fantastic journey for the students, families, staff, and entire community of Julia deBurgos School, K-8.   My name is Maritza Hernandez and I am the very proud principal of Julia de Burgos Elementary School. I am honored to be working in the same community that I grew up in and believe in the success of our school community.


I believe in setting high expectations for all students, building relationships with our students, staff, and familites. It is my belief that remaining consistent and focused on our vision and mission is essential. By building relationships and creating partnerships with all members of the school community within the building and surrounding area, we will foster a love and desire for learning in all of our students.


I sincerely thank you in advance for what I am sure will be a wonderful year of Academic Success at  Julia de Burgos. If you ever have a concern or questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
