Our vision expresses our intent: Helmers Elementary School is committed to the development of a community of lifelong learners and future leaders, decision-makers, and persons of character. 

A Message from Our Principal

Welcome to Helmers, where we are dedicated to ensuring that our school provides a welcoming, stimulating learning environment and our students are actively involved in learning academic standards as well as positive character values. Our commitment to providing our students with a challenging academic program aligned to the California Common Core State Standards enables all our students to reach their fullest potential. We also encourage our students to learn and follow the Six Pillars of Character: Caring, Citizenship, Fairness, Respect, Responsibility, and Trustworthiness. We are confident they will gain the skills, attitudes, and understanding necessary to be successful 21st-century citizens.
