Vista del Mar Elementary - Gold Ribbon and Honor Roll School

The California Department of Education identified

Vista del Mar Elementary School as a Gold Ribbon School

and 2015 California Honor Roll School.

Congratulations to our teachers, students and parents for their hard work, dedication, and passion for learning!  We have all known what a great school we have in our community and it is even better to know that the State has honored us for our efforts.  Vista del Mar is committed to providing our children with the best educational tools and thinking skills to prepare them for their future.  


In addition, the Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), has recognized Vista del Mar Elementary School as an Honor Roll school for the 2015 California Honor Roll.


Way to go Makos!

'Mako' a Great Summer 2016!

We hope everyone is having a wonderful summer break enjoying the sun, surf and beautiful community of San Clemente.  Whether you are having a stay-cation or vacation abroad, we wish you a restful and safe summer experience.  Parents, don't forget to have your children access their student links, by clicking on "Students" above.  There are many websites they can visit including Typing Agent which will be a very important skill to have as we prepare for our new writing program for next year "Write from the Beginning and Beyond."  The writing program, funded by our MAKO Foundation, will provide a systematic writing approach across all grade levels.


Don't forget to check the left side of this webpage for the recommended School Supplies for next year.  In addition, there are other important links to remember including the school year's calendar, parking lot procedures, and helpful tips for a successful 2016-2017 school year.


Makos, we will see you ready to go on Monday, August 15, 2016 for the first day of school!
