Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Plum Canyon Elementary School in Saugus, California. We serve approximately 675 transitional kindergarten (TK) through sixth-grade students in the Saugus Union School District. Plum Canyon is a California Distinguished, a California Gold Ribbon, and a Silver Award-Winning PBIS school.

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Plum Canyon Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to say I am humbled and honored to be the principal of Plum Canyon Elementary School. 

Together I know we will build a positive and safe school environment. Together I know we will promote the diverse and unique needs, talents, and gifts of each of our students. At Plum Canyon, we will be about the business of Learning and "Building Each Other Up." We will challenge our Panthers to climb to the highest heights academically, behaviorally, socially, and emotionally!

One of the reasons for Plum Canyon's success is the support of our wonderful parents. Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s education. There are many ways, in which parents can be involved, such as classroom volunteers, joining the Plum Canyon PTA, becoming members of our School Site Council (SSC), becoming members of our English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC), participating during Coffee with the principal, or help at one time events. Research shows that parent involvement increases student academic achievement!

Plum Canyon staff are dedicated professionals working tirelessly to provide our students with a safe and positive educational experience. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated group of Educators working with our students, and with your help, we can continue to achieve academic excellence.

I look forward to working with each and every one of you this year, and I look forward to a productive and successful school year!
