Principal's Welcome Message

  • Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!

    As the incoMrs. Elaine Burney ming principal of College View Elementary School, it is with great pleasure that I welcome all students and families to our school! I am so fortunate to work with such a wonderful staff, group of students and school community. Having worked in the Ocean View School District for the last 12 years, I have gained invaluable experience in helping to create a successful, nurturing and safe school environment, and my expectation is that we will do so again this year.

    The staff and I plan to continue on the path of educational excellence and we are committed to providing all College View students with the academic and pro-social behaviors that will be the foundation of their present and future success.

    To give you a little background on me—I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing from California State University at Long Beach, along with a Liberal Studies Certificate and Teaching Credential. I earned my Master of Science in Education Administration from Pepperdine University.

    "Enjoy the little things in life for someday you will realize they were the big things." I am not sure who said it exactly, but thank you to the “someone” who did. I think it is so important that in the busyness of our days, we stop and take the time to appreciate all the successes that happen all around us each day.

    Thank you for keeping up-to-date with all the wonderful things happening here at College View by visiting our website and making sure personal contact information is always updated so you can receive the latest information. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns throughout the year, please contact me at (714) 847-3505, make an appointment to visit me, or email me. Thank you in advance for all your support! Go Wildcats!
