Principal's Message

June 12, 2024

Dear Harmony Families, 


It is with bittersweet emotions, that I bid you all a very fond farewell as I am retiring and starting the next chapter in my life.  Serving this school and community as the Principal of Harmony Elementary for the past seven and a half years has been an amazing journey and honor. I have valued your positive energy and dedication to excellence and partnership in education for our children.  I will treasure these years immensely working with your incredible children and dedicated staff as it has been the highlight of my 40-year educational career.

The new principal for Harmony Elementary is Mrs. Alejandra Avila.  Mrs. Avila’s new assignment is effective July 1, 2024.  Mrs. Avila is a current administrator at Hemet Unified School District. She brings a wealth of knowledge and commitment that she is eager to share with our students, families, and staff.  I am confident that Mrs. Avila will do an amazing job preparing our students for the future, ensuring that all are college and career-ready.

On behalf of our incoming principal, assistant principal, and outstanding staff, we appreciate your commitment to ensuring Harmony Elementary remains a safe, celebrated, and successful school. Together I know this school will continue to be one of great growth socially, emotionally, and academically for every student served.  I wish you all the best.
