Live Oak Elementary School

Growing Hearts and Minds, One Leader at a Time


Welcome to Live Oak Elementary School!
Home of the Falcons 
and a "Leader in Me" School
Vision Statement

The Live Oak team will empower and equip student leaders as passionate and skilled 21st century learners and are committed to closing the achievement gap for all learners, as guided by and outlined in the FUESD Blueprint for Student Success, resulting in increased achievement for all students.

Mission Statement

At Live Oak Elementary we believe that students succeed in an atmosphere where children are engaged, take responsibility for their learning, and respect themselves and others, therefore, a safe learning environment, high standards, and leadership goals are of greatest priority. As a professional learning community, we believe in the worth of every student, and as a result, strive to enable each child to become a self-confident, skilled, and successful citizen, ready to embrace college and career goals.  It is our collective mission and expectation that the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and the philosophies of the Leader in Me, will be developed, modeled, and fully integrated in everything we do at L.O.E. as we move toward achieving Lighthouse status from the Covey organization.

Jeans for Troops!
Our own Mrs. Guajardo got Live Oak involved in a national event, Jeans for Troops, on November 14th.  Staff and students were encouraged to "dress down" and wear their favorite jeans, and make a donation that will help our military families in need.  What a great way to honor our military and get Live Oak involved in service projects!  Thanks Mrs. Gujardo!
Congratulations to the 2014-2015 Student Council Leaders for Live Oak Elementary School:
President: Vivianna Velasquez
Vice President: Karli Schreiber
Secretary: Ryann Wallace
Treasurer: Makenna Sandoval
Over 50 students went through the election process, which is yet again, another example of the tremendous student leadership we have at our school! There is a significant need for all student leaders to lead committees and programs throughout the year---so bring forward your ideas and support. Leadership is not position, rather a persons ability to positively influence others.
Congrats to these students and to everyone who ran an amazing campaign!

 Parent Event was a huge success!

On October 27, 2014, Live Oak Elementary School hosted our first parent and community event, "Leading and Growing, Together". The night was specifically designed for parents. Ultimately, the success of the student’s academic achievement rests on the figurative shoulders of strong parental involvement and dedicating funds for empowering and supporting my parent community. The night was a huge success and there will be more to come!


Several teachers offered break out sessions based on parent interest, offering “choice” for all participants:

·      Watch Your P's and Q's, Multiplication and division models (Carlos Magos - facilitator)

·      Inspiring greatness within each child (Danni Fieri - facilitator)

·      The power of parent involvement in early literacy K-2 (Tiffany Coates - facilitator)

·      What does reading comprehension mean? 3-6 (Kathy Garcia - facilitator)

·      Beat the testing blues (Casey Guajardo - facilitator)

The Leader in Me

Watch the Seven Habits music video featuring our 6th grade leaders!




LOE had 15 parent leaders complete an eight-week parent leader book club. Thanks to our school counselor, Marilyn Thompson and our PTA president, Nicole Weber, the participants read, collaborated, and shared their insights every Tuesday morning in Room B13 on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. Administration participated along the way, and witnessed great growth and empowerment in the graduates. They completed the journey with celebration potluck and certificates... in proper Covey fashion, everyone enjoyed “Sharpening the Saw” and taking a moment to celebrate!!
