Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Principal Jonathan Saipe

I am pleased and honored to be Principal at Holmes Elementary.  I look forward to another year of working with teachers, support staff, students, families and the community to facilitate improved achievement for each child. 
 
I’d like to take this opportunity to share a bit about myself. I am a native of San Diego and grew up in the San Diego Unified School District. I attended Cadman, Whitman, and Marston and spent most of my childhood in the Clairemont community.  I enjoy all sports, weightlifting, mountain biking, and learning as much as possible. 

Professionally, I have worked in the district for over 20yrs. I worked as a teacher’s aide for 3 years before becoming a teacher.  I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.  Along with my classroom experience, I have had leadership experience as a Peer Coach/Staff Developer, Project Resource Teacher, Beginning Teacher Support Provider, and Vice Principal.

My variety of experiences have enabled me to gain valuable knowledge in understanding the roles and responsibilities we each play in shaping young minds to be lifelong learners and prepared for the 21st  Century. 

You have my very best wishes for a year of extraordinary achievement. 

 
In Partnership for Excellence,
 
Jonathan Saipe
