Principal's Message

David Brutus

  • As the principal of Abraham Lincoln Elementary School, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to be a member of the "Lion Pride." In Colton Joint Unified School District I have enjoyed the results of professional partnerships between district and school staff, community members, and the school board while serving our school as we strive toward what is best for our children's academic success and social well-being. I am truly honored to be in this position and am looking forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program to our students.

     I find that my professional experiences have assisted me in developing and implementing programs and services that are student-centered and support the ideals of the Colton Joint Unified School District for student achievement and social well-being.

    My greatest desire is to provide leadership that will facilitate a safe school environment that provides academic excellence and challenge for each child to achieve to the best of their ability. The educational programs will exemplify our transition to the Common Core State Standards. Parents, teachers, support staff, and administration all have an important role in encouraging and supporting our children's learning experiences.

    Through a close partnership with our learning community, I am confident we can make our school a safe place where our children learn and grow.
