Welcome to Ira Cross Jr. Elementary!


I am extremely excited about the changes taking place at the new Ira Cross Jr. Elementary.  As the new Principal, I am looking forward to the upcoming school year and the many successes that await our campus. I am both humbled and honored at the opportunity to work with such a great community. Our staff is committed towards working together in order to provide meaningful learning experiences for all students. It will be my honor to work with them as a team, setting new goals and helping all students achieve to their highest potential.


I am very passionate about developing the whole child and preparing them for the future. Academic and social goals for all students are a high priority on our campus and will lead us to new accomplishments. By continuing to work together, we can make the upcoming school year a great success for all students.


Sincerely, Tomas Sias
