Principal Coffee Chat.jpg

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”  -Helen Keller


Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to invite you to join me at a monthly “Principal Coffee Chat”, where we can have an informal discussion about our school.  It will be a good opportunity for me to share our school’s goals for the year, collaboratively plan for upcoming events, and/or address questions or concerns you might have.  The meetings will begin at 8:15 in the Conference Room (near Front Office).  Below are the meeting dates for the 2014-2015 school year.  I look forward to seeing you there.

In partnership with you,

Mrs. Raquel Kusunoki


Principal Coffee Chat Days:

May 28, 2015  (Incoming Kinder Parents)

Joseph Elementary School maintains the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (P.B.I.S.) program to help foster a responsible, respectful and safe learning environment for students and staff.  PBIS is a school-wide behavioral approach where students are supported and empowered to equally contribute to our school’s success and safety.  To highlight and celebrate positive behavior, we have implemented Weller Student store as a reward system for all students.  Our student store will be open one day during  the week of March 9.  The exact date and times will be determined by the end of this week.  


Part of what makes the Weller Elementary Community so special is the active partnership between parents, teachers, and administrators. The Weller PTA is comprised of families and teachers whose dedication and involvement truly helps make Weller thrive.  To get involved or get more info, email us [email protected], visit our website at and follow us on Facebook.
