Principal's Message



Dear Ladybug Family,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am writing this letter of introduction as the principal of Lafayette Park Primary Center. I am incredibly grateful and excited to join this amazing community. I have been in the field of education for more than 16 years. During my career, I have worked as a Paraprofessional, Teacher, Title III Instructional Coach, most recently as Assistant Principal. I am honored to be assigned to my own school, where I can continue my work with students, staff, and parents.

Our mission is to create a Professional Learning Community where we focus on: connecting, collaborating, and engaging in strategies to help our students thrive. Our vision is to provide a caring and compassionate environment for our students. My main focus will be to work collaboratively with all of our families to ensure that we provide the best quality education to our LaFayette Ladybugs.

Our commitment continues to be to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for our students to thrive and become lifelong learners. I look forward to meeting all of our students, parents, and community partners. 

Feel free to visit us or call us to make an appointment to discuss your ideas, suggestions, or concerns. Your input is valuable in making this a successful school year.



Mr. Valadez
