Our School

From a one-room schoolhouse in Avery to its present location across from White Pines Lake and named for its founding teacher, Hazel Fischer Elementary School maintains a small, supportive community feel that would make Miss Fischer proud.  Some of Miss Fischer’s former students now have grandchildren attending this school.  Through parents, staff, and community resources, Hazel Fischer Elementary offers an extended variety of learning activities such as painting, ceramics, ski trips, a weekly sing-along, afterschool sports, a Learning Lab, and a computer Lab.

Stakeholders have worked together with the Vallecito Union School District to develop goals for the Local Control Accountability Plan and Single Plan for the site.  Schoolwide initiatives support student learning and proficiency in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and include multiple online and curriculum-embedded formative assessments, progress monitoring in English Language Arts using Guided Reading and running records, Response to Intervention, the adoption and implementation of curriculum aligned with CCSS and professional development focusing on curriculum adoptions.
