Principal's Message Lydiksen School Picture ...

Dear Lydiksen Families,

Welcome to the 2013-14 school year! It is my privilege to serve as the Lydiksen Principal. The staff and I look forward to working with you to ensure your children have an enjoyable and successful year.

Lydiksen is a student-centered school committed to providing a high-quality education where each student is valued and challenged. Utilizing a rigorous curriculum, research-based strategies, and a comprehensive character education program, it is our highest priority to provide a learning environment that supports academic, social, emotional, and physical development.

Our school goals align with the Pleasanton Unified School District Strategic Plan, and we share the PUSD Vision: Every student will be a resourceful, resilient, responsible and engaged world citizen. As California prepares for the transition to the new Common Core State Standards, a primary focus of our efforts will be on effective implementation of these standards and curriculum.

Community support plays a vital role in Lydiksen’s success. Our Parent Faculty Club (PFC) works closely with our staff to provide volunteers, community-building events, and multiple fundraisers to support our educational programs. We face many challenges due to ongoing budget constraints, which make the support provided by parents and community members critically important. Please contact the school office if you would like to learn more about how you can be involved. Thank you for partnering with us in our commitment to excellence and helping to make Lydiksen Elementary a wonderful place to learn and grow.
