About Us

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the pastor, the faculty and staff, School Advisory Commission and Parent Club Officers, I want to welcome you to our school. St.Isidore faculty and staff are dedicated to educating our students to be prepared for the challenges of our millennium, both spiritually and academically. We will continue to focus on compassion and respect for life and the teachings of Christ. Our Student Learning Expectations, found on this website, outline our expectations for our students when they leave the 8th grade.

Through my years as an educator I have taught at almost all elementary grade levels including preschool. When I accepted my first principal’s position in 1987, I enrolled in the Educational Administrator’s Master program at St. Mary’s College in Moraga and received my degree in May of 1990 and Administrative Credential in May of 1993.

I have dedicated myself to the success of all catholic school’s spiritually and academically.

St. Isidore School is a Catholic school - it is not a private school and it is not a “business”. The main focus is to teach the faith. Students graduate from the school with a strong faith in God. They are caring, compassionate Christians who respect life and understand the dangers to the quality of human life in this millennium if we do not keep our focus on God.

The school is for all children. The staff believes in the basic goodness of every child and every individual’s right and desire to learn. Catholic education will not only evangelize your child by bringing them closer to God, but also give them the skills, developed to their fullest ability, to move into high school and beyond.

By entrusting your child to our care, together we can build on the Christian values and foundations begun at home to mold your child into a complete Christian. Your child will learn the caring, the love, the compassion, and the forgiveness of Jesus.

We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children. When parents and school work together, they truly provide the best possible education for the child.

Yours in Christ,

Barbara Genera, Regional Director
