Dear Berryessa Union Community,

On behalf of the Berryessa Union School District’s Board of Trustees, we are proud to welcome back all of our wonderful students, families and staff to the 2019-2020 school year. A new school year represents a fresh new start, filled with dreams, hopes, and opportunities.
We would like to give a shout out to all of our administrators, teachers, staff and parent volunteers who helped prepare our schools for a positive start.  It is exciting to see our classrooms, hallways and courtyards once again buzzing with joy and activity. Our students are the driving force that moves us and the focus of all of our efforts. 
I know I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to lead and support this district.  I am inspired by the shared values I see in each of our teachers, staff, administrators, and our Berryessa community. As I reflect on our journey together and the work we must do to create a culture of achievement for all, I come back to the critical importance of student learning environments and the opportunity we have to make school a great place for each child in our school district.  This is the cornerstone of moving towards an aligned district system that supports MTSS (Multi-Tiered System) which will be our continued focus for 2019-20.  I thank you in advance in working with us to achieve our goals for student success.
Please join me in welcoming many new staff members to our team this fall. They are either in a new leadership position, or have joined a new school or District department team, we wish them all a successful and exciting new year. Please join us in formally welcoming and congratulating the following individuals on their new District positions:
Kevin Franklin, Assistant Superintendent, Business Services
Joshua Quitoriano, Director, Business Services
Nelson Estupin, Human Resources Manager
Heidi Perry, Personnel Assistant II
Maricela Krickovic, Laneview Elementary School Principal
Chris Mosley, Piedmont Middle School Principal
Carol Mar, Sierramont Middle School Principal
We would especially like to extend a warm welcome to our new families in Berryessa Union! We invite you to get involved, participate, and become our partners in building the pathway to a successful future for every one of our students!

Lastly, we encourage everyone to take a quick moment to follow us on Facebook and Twitter (LINKS) where you can stay connected with us on a daily basis. Please share your comments and pictures with us all year round by hashtagging #pathwaytothefuture.

Once again, welcome back to school! Thank you for choosing the Berryessa Union School District! Let’s make this our best year yet!
With BUSD pride,
Dr. Roxane Fuentes
Superintendent of Schools
