6th Grade Spelling Bee 2014

 

Eucalyptus held the first ever 6th grade Spelling Bee on Tuesday, March 18th.  Three finalists from each 6th grade classroom competed for the title.  The competition was so intense that Mr. Gunter almost ran out of words!  In the end it came down to two contenders, Jenna and Gabriel, and one word-hieroglyphics.  Gabriel walked away as the victor! Jenna took second place and Samantha came in third.

Congratulations to all the finalists:

Samantha, Terijon, Alex C., Jenna, Gabriel, Grace, Alex B., Lexi, and Juan (in order from left to right)

Teacher and Employee of the 2012 - 2013 School Year

You know about the abundant dedication, professionalism, concern and heart for all kids displayed by the teachers and staff of Eucalyptus Elementary; these truly are individuals worthy of respect.  But did you know that two have been acknowledged by their peers as personifying all of those traits, as displaying exactly what we all look for in the educators of our children?  We are so proud to have Debbie Barbour as our Teacher of the Year and Karen Mendoza as our Employee of the Year.  They were selected by the people they work with each day, who see how they interact with students and who know how they care and work for the education and well being of the students of Eucalyptus. In addition to this distinction of receiving Employee of the year, Karen Mendoza was also awarded Hesperia School District's Employee of the Year! Congratulations to Miss Barbour and Mrs. Mendoza!  We are so proud and blessed to have you on our staff!

Our History

Eucalyptus opened on Maple Elementary's campus in 1985, which was shared until 1986. In late 1986 we moved to the south field of our current site which consisted of portable classrooms and bathrooms. At that time we had 1 principal, 1 secretary, 1 custodian, 9 teachers, and approximately 270 students.

  1. Be Safe
