Railway School of Math, Science and Technology was honored for the second consecutive year with a Models of Academic Excellence Award. They received the award for their writing program in which they employ best practices through the integration of writing and science. The magnet program at Railway was created with the vision to develop leaders in math, science and technology and to give students the skills necessary to compete and thrive in a technological age.

On Sunday, October 27, 2013, Cardenas Markets sponsored their 7th Annual Cardenas Festival. Held at the Auto Speedway in Fontana, the event drew thousands of families and friends and was covered by Telemundo, Univision and several Spanish language newspapers. The purpose of the event was to thank Cardenas customers and to give back to local communities by awarding $483,000 in Educational Scholarships.
In awarding the scholarships, the Cardenas Family focused on providing educational grants to colleges, universities and K-12 school districts that submitted proposals that emphasized innovation and service to students. Marco Robles, Public Affairs Director, accepted proposals for funding consideration by the Cardenas Family.
We are extremely proud to announce that one of our proposals was selected to receive a $25,000 grant! Eric Rivera, Principal of Park Ave. and Perris Elementary schools, and Michelle Echiverri, Assistant Principal, submitted a grant proposal for a project called Park/Perris News Channel (PNC). This innovative program will allow students to create a working newsroom in which they will produce segments on schoolwide activities and district events.
We are very thankful to Marco Robles, the Cardenas family and Cardenas Markets, which has 29 stores located throughout Southern California, for their generosity and support of the children in the Perris Elementary School District.
Welcome to the 2013-14 School Year!
As we begin this new year we have identified three main areas of focus. The first is our commitment to implementing the Common Core Standards in our District. This represents a significant change in how we provide instruction to our students. The second area of focus is the integration of technology into our classrooms. You will see the use of iPads and Chrome Books throughout our District. The third area of focus is upgrading and improving our schools. You may have noticed that four of our schools were painted during the summer. Soon, you will see improved irrigation and landscaping at each of our facilities. We want to give our parents every reason to “Choose Perris First” by providing a quality of education coupled with school facilities we can be proud of!
We are proud to announce that our Board of Education voted to restore all furlough days for the 2013-2014 school year. This decision is retroactive to July 1, 2013 and will provide for a full, 180-day school year for our students. We thank our teachers, classified confidential employees, principals, assistant principals, coordinators, directors and District Office management staff for their support during these times.
