Principal's Message

Dear Schmitt Families,

I hope this letter finds you enjoying these last few weeks of summer. Welcome to the 22-23 school year. My name is Mrs. Sarah Nead-Rendon, but you can call me Mrs. Rendon and I am the new principal here at Schmitt Elementary. I am thrilled to be here to share the 22-23 school year with you and your children. 

I started my teaching career 16 years ago here in Westminster and it is great to be back. The last three years I have been an assistant principal at Greenville Fundamental Elementary in Santa Ana and previously was here in Westminster as an instructional coach and worked with many sites throughout the district helping to implement our district curriculum and programs, and prior to that I was a classroom teacher for ten years. This coming year we will continue to focus on AVID school wide and Engineering to provide all of our students the opportunity to grow and be successful. 

Our staff is busy preparing for students to return on Tuesday, August 30th. We are anxiously waiting to welcome our returning students and meet our new TK and kindergarten students on their very first day of school.

We are  committed to making this an amazing year and can’t wait to see all of the great things this school year will bring. I look forward to meeting each and everyone of you and getting to know you and your children. 

Sarah Nead-Rendon
