Principal's Message


    Dear Van Bokkelen Families,


    I am thrilled to be able to lead the Van Bokkelen school community as we begin the 2020-2021 school year virtually. We are committed to providing quality learning opportunities for our students.  Our teachers have received over twenty hours of professional development to support our instructional programs.

    As a schoolwide Title 1 school we receive federal funding to support our academic and enrichment programs.  The funding is used to pay for additional materials, supplemental personnel, and to reduce class size.

    As we continue our work to produce Twenty First Century learners, we will continue to expand our use of technology. Our virtual learning platform supports this effort.

    Together—teachers + students + parents + community—we can guide and promote our children as they become readers, writers, and thinkers.

    Van Bokkelen is a wonderful school and we are honored to teach your children.


    With deepest respect,


    Jan Haberlein

    Acting Principal

    Van Bokkelen Elementary School
