Principal's Message


Dear Erwin Families,


As we embark on a new school year, we are thrilled to welcome back our returning families and extend a warm greeting to all our new students and their families. Our dedication remains steadfast in providing a high-quality education that empowers every student to achieve their full potential.


In alignment with the Los Angeles Unified School District's (LAUSD) 2022-2026 Strategic Plan, Erwin Elementary will continue its commitment to ensuring ALL our students graduate READY FOR THE WORLD – prepared to excel in college, career, and life. For more details on the Strategic Plan, please visit: 



At Erwin Elementary, our focus remains on engaging students through innovative programs that foster academic, emotional, and physical growth. We are excited to announce that for the upcoming academic year, we will enhance our commitment by revitalizing our science lab and expanding our Maker Space program. These initiatives will provide students with opportunities to engage in scientific investigations, foster creativity, and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.


We believe that parent involvement is crucial to student success. All Parent Workshops and Coffee with the Principal sessions will now be hosted at our Parent Center, where our dedicated team is ready to assist families with any inquiries and share volunteer opportunities.


I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our entire school community for your continued support and dedication. Together, we will ensure this academic year is both memorable and successful.


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. Let's collaborate closely to make this a year of growth, learning, and achievements.


Welcome to what promises to be an exciting and enriching school year at Erwin Elementary!
