New Temple Elementary


Principal's Welcome

Welcome to New Temple Elementary School home of the Tigers. Our teachers and staff provide an exemplary instructional program. It is inspiring to see the learning that takes place daily in our classrooms. Our students are taught  21st Century Learning Skills in a collaborative, engaging, and productive environment.  I look forward to working with you as we continue to make New Temple a place where all students thrive. Thank you for allowing us to be a partner in your child's education. Our district sends a monthly newsletter with important information and upcoming events. We know that children are more successful in school when parents are actively involved.  Our students will be the future leaders of our community and I am thankful for this opportunity to serve as your principal. 

Go Tigers!
Mr. Gannon, Principal

Upcoming Events


New Temple Elementary Welcomes: The Natural History Museum Archaeology Experience Mobile Museum January 29th through February 2nd. Supervisor Hilda Solis will be at New Temple on January 31st at 9:00 a.m. for the ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the NHM Mobile Museum. "Working as archaeologists, students piece together clues from the past to understand the Chumash peoples of California. Students excavate and analyze replicas of artifacts based on real data from archaeological sites in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles counties to draw conclusions about daily life. By interpreting and contextualizing material culture, students learn that the Chumash peoples of the past were a complex society thriving in Southern California, a land rich in natural resources." -Natural History Museum
