Welcome to Iowa Elementary School


Our Mission:

Our mission in the Iowa Elementary Community is to instill compassion, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and effective communication in order to contribute positively to society.

  • Iowa learners are global thinkers and leaders who will confidently embrace the diversity of our world.

  • We understand that our purpose is to inspire a diverse student population to become life-long learners.

Dear Iowa Community,

As we shared with you earlier this month, we were deeply saddened to inform you that Principal Bonnie Wong Estrada passed away unexpectedly. Our hearts go out to Bonnie’s family during this tragic time.

Bonnie was a dedicated and passionate principal who always put student needs first. She dedicated her entire professional career to public education as a teacher, instructional coach, interventionist and leader. She will be dearly missed.

Some of you may be struggling after hearing this sad news, and I want you to know that we are here to help. Counselors will be available to support families and staff members at the APS Back to School Kickoff on Saturday Aug. 4, during the first week of school and at Iowa’s Back to School Night on Aug. 7.

We are in the process of selecting a new interim principal for the 2018-19 school year. We expect to complete the selection process in the coming weeks and we will share that information with you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support. We are looking forward to a great year at Iowa and welcoming all of our students back!

Estimada Comunidad de Iowa,

Como les compartimos anteriormente, nos entristeció profundamente el tener que informarles que la Directora Bonnie Wong Estrada falleció de manera inesperada.  Nuestros pensamientos están con Bonnie durante estos momentos tan difíciles.

Bonnie fué una Directora dedicada y con una gran pasión, y su prioridad siempre fueron los estudiantes. Ella dedicó su vida entera a la educación pública como maestra, instructora didáctica, intervencionista y líder. La extrañaremos mucho.

Para algunos de ustedes puede ser difícil esta triste noticia. Quiero que sepan que estamos aquí para ayudarlos. Tendremos consejeros disponibles, para apoyar a las familias y miembros del personal de Iowa Elementary durante nuestro Evento de Regreso a Clases, el 4 de agosto , durante la primera semana de clases y durante la Noche de Regreso a Clases (Back to School Night) de Iowa, el 7 de agosto.  

Estamos en el proceso de elegir a un nuevo Director/a Interino/a para el ciclo escolar 2018-19.  Esperamos completar el proceso de selección durante las próximas semanas, y compartiremos esa información con ustedes lo más pronto posible.

Gracias por su apoyo.  ¡Esperamos con gusto el inicio de un gran ciclo escolar en Iowa, y ya queremos darle la bienvenida a nuestros estudiantes!  

Carole Jennings
Directora de Aprendizaje de la Comunidad P-20
