Message from the Principal's office:

Mary Covillaud Elementary is one of the finest schools in the Yuba-Sutter area and we are committed to making a difference with children.  Mary Covillaud was  recognized by the State of California as a Distinguished School for 2006 and a Title One Academic Achievement School for 2007.  For six years we scored over 800 on the Academic Performance Index and in 2015 we became a California Honor Roll School. At the end of the 2017 school year, Mary Covillaud had the highest academic scores in Yuba and Sutter counties.  In 2018 the state of California honored the school by allowing Mary Covillaud to apply for Distinguished School once again.  We are the ONLY school in the Yuba-Sutter area that has  been allowed to apply.   We were recently honored as a school to have a front page article in the "Appeal Democrat" about our successes with children.  The Yuba-Sutter community has bonded with our school by giving of themselves and donating time and supplies to the learners at Mary Covillaud.  


One of the attributes that distinguish Mary Covillaud Elementary is our staff.  I have observed on many occasions, members of the staff doing caring things for children.  The staff is amazing but they continually need your support.  I firmly believe the family is the center of learning and parents are most welcome as learners and participants in the Mary Covillaud Elementary Community. We just want to help you make a difference.  Please take advantage of the staff's expertise and all will be successful.


My goal as the Site Principal is to involve home and community with school.  Several community organizations have joined Mary Covillaud Elementary in it's quest for excellence with our students.  I desire every parent, grandparent, guardian, uncle, and aunt to become involved in his or her child's education.  I solicit families to celebrate with us over their children's success.  Come by on Friday mornings and observe our Walk of Fame and how we promote student success. I urge everyone to become involved with the various established school organizations. Remember, 'Coffee & Tea with Mr. E' is held once per month just to listen and share each other's perspectives.  I want to do what is best for our students. I am looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year.
