Principal's Message

2022-2023 WIGs

As a school community, we create year-long academic and personal goals to work towards.  Our Wildly Important Goals (WIG's) are aligned to our School Plan for Student Achievement.  Our Solano Scholars track their progress in their Leadership Notebooks and use this tool to reflect on their learning during the academic year.

2022-2023 WIGS

coming soon



Mr. Parra's personal mission statement

"To serve my Solano community by providing opportunities to our students, parents, and staff to learn and lead."

Dear Solano families,

     I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer break and practiced Habit #7 – Sharpening the Saw.  It is hard to believe that we are only days away from starting the 2022-2023 school year.  I am confident that the 2022-2023 school year will be our best yet.

     I look forward to continuing the exemplary work that has been occurring at our school to nurture and support our students to be, Empowered Learners, Innovative Thinkers, and Courageous Leaders”.  Providing students with a safe place to learn, enriched learning opportunities, and student voice complement "The Leader in Me" and aligned to our LAUSD 2022-2026 Strategic Plan to get our Scholars "Ready for the World".  With a dedicated staff, we will continue the work that has made Solano Avenue Elementary a Leader in Me Lighthouse school and a CA Distinguished School. 

     Our Solano staff is looking forward to welcoming our Scholars smiling faces and hear how they spent their summer break.  Our first day of school is Monday, August 15, 2022.  School begins at 8:00 a.m. and will end at 2:23 p.m.  We will open our gates at 7:30am and morning drop-off will continue on Solano Avenue in front of our school via valet.  Children will exit their cars on the passenger (right) side.  Please have the students Daily Pass (QR code) ready to be scanned.  This will help us get our students in the campus as quickly as possible.  Students will continue to enter through the lower playground and line up according to their classroom.  No students should be dropped off before 7:30 a.m. as there is no supervision prior to that time.  The use of mask will continue to be strongly recommended, but not mandatory.    

     During the first of week of school, our focus will be on connecting everyone to our school.  The main goal is to have kids enjoy coming to school and feeling comfortable with learning.  We want our Scholars to feel safe and be excited about returning to Solano. 

     Once again, thank you for your continued trust.  We look forward to seeing you on August 16th and to having a fantastic year. 

In partnership,

Jorge Parra Jr. - Principal
