Welcome Our New Assistant Principal!
This year Breeze Hill is very fortunate to have Mrs. Lori Higley as our Assistant Principal. Last year, Mrs. Higley served as the Administrative Designee from December through June. We are very excited to have her appointed to this position by our school district.
Mrs. Higley has served in a variety of roles throughout her career including, Breeze HIll teacher, VUSD Literacy Coach, and Beginning Teacher Support Provider. She is a welcome addition to our administrative staff and will be working very closely with Mr. Green to ensure that Breeze Hill is the very best school for our students.
Welcome Mrs. Higley!
Thank you & School Culture Update
Just a quick note to say thank you to all of our students, families and staff for a great first week of school.
This week we kicked off our School Culture initiative by hosting daily assemblies for students in grades 1-5. The purpose of these assemblies was to introduce students and staff to our Breeze Hill School Pillars. We will introduce Transition Kindergarten and Kindergarten students to the Pillars in the very near future...we wanted them to get settled into their new classrooms and become comfortable with classroom expectations and routines before we started the Pillars.
Our School Pillars are: #1 Welcome, #2 Do No Harm, #3 Choice Words, #4 Never Too Late to Learn, and #5 Best School in the Universe.
For the next 30 days, we will focus extensively on the Pillar #1: Welcome. Please look for our staff and students to be practicing ways to be more welcoming. Our goal is to cultivate an atmosphere that is, "so welcoming, so inviting, and so comfortable that all who enter our school believe they are about to have an amazing experience." (How to Create a Culture of Achievement: Fisher, Frey, Pumpian. Pg. 19).
We know that it takes time to develop new ways of thinking and behaving. And, we are very aware that we will not arrive at our destination of being the Best School in the Universe over night, but we are committed to growth over time. So, as we implement the Pillars this year, feel free to provide us feedback If we are doing a great job, let us know...if we aren't let us know too, so that we can continue to improve.
Thank you and we invite you to join us in making this an amazing year at Breeze Hill Elementary!

About Breeze Hill
Breeze Hill Elementary School opened in 1992 in southern Vista with a vision of setting the highest possible academic and personal expectations for students. The goal of educators there is for each student to experience a sense of pride through positive accomplishments, mastery of grade-level standards, and development of valuable relationships as we prepare them for a successful future in the 21st century. The school was awarded the California Distinguished School Award in 2000 and 2004.
The school staff works collaboratively with families to ensure a strong community connection. Parents participate in a variety of ways, including through the PTA, School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee and by volunteering in the classroom. Throughout the year the PTA raises money and hosts events which help strengthen the programs and community at the school. Some of these events include the annual fall carnival, family movie nights, book fair and literacy night, school talent show and Jog-a-Thon.
Breeze Hill serves a diverse population of 870 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. There are 33 classroom teachers, and a number of certificated staff who work collaboratively to educate all students. Staff members are role models of courtesy, respect, hard work, and personal achievement.
