    Welcome Matadors,

    I am Clete Purinton, Principal at Mira Loma.  I am so excited to begin the 2022-23 school year and I look forward to meeting our new students and incoming freshman class. Mira Loma is a special place.  We are blessed to have such a dedicated faculty, and I am honored to be a part of the long-standing tradition of academic success. I am passionate about student learning, and I want to see all our students prepared for the next step of their journey to reach their dreams.

    Parents, I am thankful for your partnership. There is a vast number of opportunities to join parent groups specifically involved with your child’s academic and extracurricular activities. Those parent groups include IBPO, ISSPO, Boosters (Athletics), and ELAC. Please check the website for more information about how to be involved in each of these groups  www.sanjuan.edu/miraloma   

    Our parent groups are a great way for you to involve yourself in school-related programs, but there are other forums such as Site Council, that determines how we use our supplemental funds to address the needs of our students.  We also have a need for a parent and student to be on our safety committee.  Email me at cpurinton@sanjuan.edu if you are interested in either of these opportunities. 

    Students, I hope you’ve had a great summer. The beginning of the school year is fast approaching. Our first day of school is August 11th. Our staff has worked hard to prepare for the start of school, and we look forward to building on the momentum that we created a year ago to reestablish the Mira Loma culture in 2022-23.  

    I’m honored to be your Principal, and I look forward to supporting every student in their academic journey in the 2022-23 school year.
