Welcome Back

Posted by Elva Gonzales-Nares on 8/17/2022


Dear Marina West Parents and Community,

As principal of Marina West Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome back returning families and new families for another great year at Marina West.  We are excited to have students coming back to our classrooms. It is our mission to help every child feel welcome, connected and a part of the Marina West family. 

New for the 2022-23 School Year:

New Bell Schedules

  • We will be adding 5 minutes to the end of the school day.
  • Beginning August 24, all Wednesdays will be early release. When students are dismissed early on Wednesdays, teachers will have an opportunity to collaborate and plan. Collaboration is an essential practice that will bring grade level teams together to learn from each other and plan instruction.  Please refer to the attached schedule.

I am honored to serve as principal of Marina West and to be a part of a community of parents, teachers and students who strive to support student academic and social growth.  Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. 


Elva Gonzales-Nares
