Message from the Principal:

Mary Covillaud Elementary continues to be one of the finest schools in the Yuba-Sutter area and we are committed to making a difference for our learners.  Mary Covillaud Elementary was recognized by the State of California as a Distinguished School for the 2006 and 2018 school years, as well as a Title One Academic Achievement School for 2007.  For six years Mary Covillaud Elementary has scored over 800 on the Academic Performance Index and in 2015 Mary Covillaud Elementary became a California Honor Roll School. At the end of the 2017 school year, Mary Covillaud Elementary had the highest academic scores in Yuba and Sutter counties.  In 2018 the state of California honored the school by allowing Mary Covillaud Elementary to apply to be a Distinguished School once again.  We are the ONLY school in the Yuba-Sutter area that has been allowed to apply.  The Yuba-Sutter community is committed to our school by giving of themselves and donating time and supplies to the learners at Mary Covillaud Elementary each year.
Mary Covillaud Elementary has a committed staff that put learners first. Our staff goes above and beyond to make sure that your learner is successful at school and in life! The partnership between the staff and the family is of utmost importance when it comes to educating our learners.
My goal as the new site principal is to continue all of the incredible traditions here at Mary Covillaud Elementary and to become involved with our learners’ families and the community that supports our school. Several community organizations continue to support Mary Covillaud Elementary on its quest for excellence. All family members are welcome to become involved in his or her child’s education. Please join us in celebrating in your student’s success. Come by each Friday morning and observe our Walk of Fame and how student success is promoted here at Mary Covillaud Elementary.  Please also join me once a month for our principal’s luncheon, where we can gather and talk about what is happening at school.
I am so excited to meet each of you and create a lasting partnership that benefits our learners!
