Awards and Recognition
Welcome to Walt Disney Elementary School where staff, students, and families worked collaboratively to ensure our students’ academic and social emotional achievement.
In 2018, Disney Elementary School was honored with the California Distinguished School Award for our continued growth in academic achievement for all students. This is a very special honor, as there are 6,193 public elementary schools in California, and Walt Disney was one of 287 schools to be recognized in 2018. We were also honored with Exemplary Arts Program Award for 2018. We were one of 12 schools from the group of 287 schools to receive this honor. I am so proud of my Disney Eagles, their families, our stellar staff and supportive community members for making this award possible for our students. Watch us SOAR!

Awards and Recognition for our Disney Students
Student of the Month Assemblies
Every month, teachers will honor one or two students for making and/or maintaining good academic progress, as well as maintaining and/or improving their classroom behavior.
Parents, family members and friends are welcome to join us on the playground. The ceremony usually last about 30-40 minutes.
Students will receive certificates with a short paragraph written by their teachers, which typically describes the reasons why they were selected to represent their classrooms, another certificate from one of our local businesses such as Yogurtland, Elephant Bar and a bumper sticker that says your child was honored as student of the month for Walt Disney Elementary.
Following the ceremony, students and their families are invited to join the principal and other staff members for refreshments under the lunch shelter. Ms. Allen will take a group picture of all students of the month, as well as individual ones with the principal. We will be asking for written permission to post your child's picture on this website at the time the pictures are taken.
If your child qualifies for any of these awards, you will receive an invitation at home a few days prior to the assembly.
