Leadership 
Mr. Tanner, Principal

I began my teaching career in 1988 here at Val Verde Elementary School back in the day when there were only two schools in the district. I am very excited to be back here where it all began.  The district and our school have come a long way since then.  My Administration career has given me the opportunity to be a school principal at five different schools in San Diego and Riverside counties.  I came back home because of the amazing progress this district has made in student achievement.  I am proud to be part of the effort and to be working at a school where some of my former students are now parents of my current students.

We have a very dedicated and hardworking staff that will go above and beyond the ordinary to provide the best possible education for our students.   This year we are excited to be in our second year of Elementary AVID implementation.  You will see elements of the AVID Program in all of our classes in Kindergarten through 6th grade.  You will also see and hear evidence or our establishing a College Going Culture at our school.

We welcome you to join us in our AVID Journey. We know it will be a great asset for our students.

Mr. Flower, Assistant Principal

It is my sincere pleasure to be the assistant principal at Val Verde Elementary School.  Val Verde Elementary School is a pillar of the City of Perris and has a distinguished history of excellence.  Staff members have created a caring and nurturing culture that seeks positive ways to support students in their academic success endeavors.

The Val Verde Elementary School culture has allowed me to build upon my experiences in education and embrace the learning environment in very positive ways.  Students are excited to learn and strive daily to excel both academically and socially.  I believe that if we continue to work together, as a team, that we can continue to carry on the legacy of excellence established at Val Verde Elementary School.
