Where the Success of Kids is our “Mission!”

We welcome you to Mission Valley Elementary’s new website. Our school is one of ten elementary schools in the Tulare City School District located in Tulare, California. Each day, our community members take in the scenic views, beautiful weather, and rich farmland that are the quintessence of California’s Central San Joaquin Valley.  

Our school opened in 2007 to students in grades K-6. We are very proud to provide our students a beautiful and modern learning environment. As an extra bonus to our staff and students, we share a community park with our city.

We hope that you will visit our website often. We will always fill it with current information, quick links, schedules, and much more.

For more information on our district services, please visit our district site.

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Families, 

Welcome back! We are looking forward to welcoming returning and new Wildcats to kick off another great year. The M.V. staff members are looking forward to this school year with great excitement and hope all our students will have a rewarding and successful year. We encourage you to get involved in whatever way you can to make your experience at Mission Valley as fulfilling as possible. If you would like to volunteer in your students’ class, please be sure to complete the volunteer form, update your TB test, and go through the fingerprinting process. We will release all forms and fingerprinting dates soon. Please note, if you went through the fingerprinting process previously through our district, you need only fill out the volunteer form/TB test verification and bring it to the school office. We understand this process can be cumbersome, but we do it for the health and safety of your child. 

Please check in regularly with our website, as we will do our best to keep the calendar up-to-date with district dates, release times, student activities, and nightly events. Also, if you have not already done so, look in the app store for TCSD to view our calendar on your phone. 

Please feel free to contact the school so we can assist you in any way to make this school year the best for your child!
