A Message from the Principal
Greetings Parents and Families of Stoneman Elementary School,
My name is Jennifer Clark and I am extremely excited about joining the staff and school community as the new Principal of Stoneman Elementary. I am both honored and happy about returning to the place where I began as a teacher some 15 years ago.
As I transition into this position, I look forward to taking time to meet and learn more about the school from the students, teachers, staff, and parents.
I’m very passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging and high-quality school environment. As the parent of two, I highly believe in the importance of a strong home-school connection. I believe working together with you will allow many opportunities for us to build relationships to ensure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.
My educational career brought me to Pittsburg Unified as a teacher in the Counseling Enrich class, primary teacher, vice-principal of two of our elementary schools in our district as well as the Assistant Principal at Pittsburg High School. Over these 16 years, I have learned that our purpose as educators is to address gaps in students' learning, support challenges that are beyond their control, and motivate them to aspire to greatness.
I look forward to learning with you and from you this year. I will be working closely with our vice principal Jeannine Manguiat to ensure that all of our scholars are intellectually challenged and we will continue to review and develop the educational program that continues to raise the bar for students, academically, challenging and engaging each student by linking what they’ve learned in school to knowledge and experiences that matter most to them.
It is with a strong commitment that I am joining Stoneman Elementary and am looking forward to leading and learning together as a community.
Thank you for this great opportunity to serve your families in this role. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
Jennifer A. Clark, Principal
Stoneman Elementary School
