PTA Page

Acacia Elementary School is a diverse campus community of approximately 420 students that is committed to providing the best possible education for every student through a program that follows the mission of the Conejo Valley Unified School District to provide a quality education in an environment where every child matters. 

At Acacia we aim to provide a safe and supportive school where all of us can be successful, lifelong 21st century learners who embrace the 4 C’s of Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking. Our school theme for the 2014-2015 school year is, “Who do you want to be?” and it encourages students to be self-directed citizens and learners who set goals and achieve them. Students, parents, staff and community at Acacia share this vision that serves as a basis for the development of our school goals, curriculum and educational program.

We want our students to:

  • Be enthusiastic and active learners who take pride in themselves and our school.
  • Reach high expectations through hard work and perseverance.
  • Express themselves clearly both verbally and in writing.
  • Read, think critically and problem solve.
  • Reason, compute, and communicate mathematically.
  • Develop an appreciation for the visual and performing arts.
  • Build healthy life habits and a sense of physical well-being.
  • Utilize technology to support and enhance their learning.
  • Take advantage of the intervention and challenge opportunities our school provides according to their individual needs.
  • Embrace and respect diversity in all its forms.
  • Be responsible.
  • Collaborate effectively and see the value of working together in school, home and community.
We are proud of our students and our school!
