Principal's Message

A Warm Welcome to the 2023-24 School Year!

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,

As we embark on the exciting journey of the 2023-2024 school year, I am honored to welcome each and every one of you to our Pasco Digital Learning Academy.

This is my 25th year in the field of education, a milestone that fills me with both gratitude and a renewed commitment to providing the best educational experience for our students. As your school's proud director, it is my privilege to guide our PDLA community toward another year of growth, learning, and accomplishment. Our team of dedicated educators and staff members have been working diligently to create an enriching environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, and a love for learning. The past years have taught us the importance of resilience and adaptability, qualities that have served us well as we navigate the ever-evolving landscape of education in our unique educational world of PDLA. Our commitment to excellence remains unwavering, as does our dedication to supporting every student on their unique educational journey.

Whether you're stepping into our school for the first time or returning as a seasoned student, know that you are an integral part of our vibrant tapestry, and your presence enriches our learning community. As we set forth on this exciting chapter, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our incredible students, parents, and guardians for entrusting us with the privilege of educating and nurturing your children. Your partnership is invaluable, and together, we will continue to shape confident, compassionate, and capable individuals who are prepared to excel in an ever-changing world.

Please remember that my door, both virtual and in person, is always open, and I welcome your thoughts, suggestions, and feedback. Let us embark on this year in education together, embracing the power of knowledge and the joy of learning.

Here's to a year of achievement, growth, and celebration!
