Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year and our school website. As principal of Country Lane Elementary, I am thrilled to be part of such a vibrant and diverse community dedicated to improving the academic, social and emotional well being of all our students. With approximately 600 students, Country Lane Elementary is a transitional kindergarten through fifth grade school in the Moreland School District. Our school, recognized multiple times as a California Distinguished School, is known for its exemplary staff, responsible, capable students, and involved, supportive parent community.


From the outset we want to make clear our hopes, aspirations, and plans for our Colts.

Our Vision - Be curious. Be kind. Be the change.

Our Mission - A Country Lane Elementary education will ensure that:

  •  Students exhibit curiosity by asking questions, thinking critically, working hard, and trying new ideas. 
  • Students will show kindness by taking care of themselves and others, respecting differences, and being patient and supportive of one another. 
  • Students will impact change by finding ways to make a difference for themselves and their community as they work toward a better future. 

Our Goals - The Country Lane staff will build on this premise by actively investigating and refining our skill set through the lens of: 

  • instruction that engages all students equitably   
  • systemic and (rigorous) expectations with supports to help all students succeed   
  • a school climate that promotes physical and emotional well-being 

Country Lane teachers and support staff work collaboratively with colleagues, as well as, our parent community to foster a school culture based on respect, responsibility and safe behavior. Please go to our Programs tab and click on Colts Can (PBIS) to learn more.  

We believe that with a strong and positive home-school connection your children will have the best opportunity to reach their potential, both academically and socially. We look forward to working with you to achieve a positive year, full of learning and growing. We value your input, ideas, questions, and concerns.
