Welcome from Francesca Ligman

  • Principal Village View Dolphins are back!

    I am elated to start the 2018-2019 school year with a big splash! The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time.  Our passionate and rejuvenated staff are thrilled to welcome their new crew of learners.  Additionally, we have an incredibly supportive and enthusiastic PTO, already planning school events and raising money for technology and programs that make Village View amazing. Our staff and PTO are committed to building life-long memories and providing a challenging and productive school year for all our Dolphins.  Our vision at Village View is to prepare students for academic excellence today and for a changing tomorrow.  We proudly embrace 21st century skills, including critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity activating. 

    We are implementing ST Math this year! Art Explorers and Music are offered to all grade levels.  We have an abundance of technology for students to explore, code and produce.  Being a smaller school, we have the joy of knowing each child by name. Village View truly has a family feel. With PBIS, we practice being kind, safe and responsible each day, as safety is one of my top priorities. 

    It is a pleasure to serve this wonderful community.  I began my career with Ocean View 22 years ago as a teacher at Village View.  I went on to work at various schools and grade levels in our district and served as a District Instructional Coach and Interim Principal at Oak View Elementary School.  I enjoy tennis, surfing, and stand up paddling.  However, my greatest joy is spending time with my family.  I live in Huntington Beach with my husband and two children who both attend schools in Ocean View.

    Looking forward to an awesome year!

    Warmly,
    Francesca Ligman
