Pac Rim Parent Survey

parent survey.jpgOur Parent Survey is designed to provide teachers, administrators, and other school staff with information directly from parents that can be used to foster positive learning and teaching environments, parent involvement, and student achievement, health, and well-being. All parents are encouraged to participate.

  • Participation is voluntary. It is also very important. The information provided will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, improve student achievement, and reduce health risks that stand as barriers to learning.
  • This is an anonymous survey. It is designed so that participating parents/guardians cannot be identified from the data.

Thank you for your participation.   Click here to begin your survey.

2015-2016 Teacher of the Year


“Role Model”, “outstanding”, “exceptional”, “a positive teacher”, these are only a few of the ways staff described Mrs. Lupica in their nominations for Teacher of the Year. Did you know that Mrs. Lupica helped create the 4th grade Native American Day and Gold Rush Day with Ms. Jordan? Yes,” innovative” and “team player” were also used to describe how she exhibits classroom teacher excellence.


Mrs. Lupica has a BA from USD and a MA from SDSU.  She has been teaching for 17 years...all at Pacific Rim Elementary!  She taught 4th grade for 3 years, and has been in Kindergarten for the last 14 years.  Mrs. Lupica serves on the School Leadership team and is the Teacher Rep for Friends of Pacific Rim.  In addition, she started Pacific Rim's new service club, Waveriders Care, with Mrs. Dufault.  Previously, she was influential in starting the Copy Cat program on campus and has been in charge of the Locks of Love assembly as well.  She absolutely loves the school's leadership, the staff, the teachers, the parents, and the students at Pacific Rim.  Mrs. Lupica states that “Working at Pacific Rim is her dream job!” 


Congratulations and Thank You to Mrs. Lupica the 2015-2016 Pacific Rim Teacher of the Year!

School Facts and Accountability Information

This provides links to a series of accountability reports about the state of our school, Pacific Rim Elementary, for the school years of 2004-2013. Under California law, as well as the No Child Left Behind Act, school districts must distribute a report card to show how every school and the district as a whole are performing. This report also must include data on how different groups of students are doing. The school reports tell you how your child’s school is doing compared to last year and to other schools.
