Principal’s Message

Welcome to Shirakawa School!
You'll soon find that Shirakawa School is a special place to be. 
As you enter the office and walk the halls, there is a strong sense of academic purpose and of a caring community of learners. 
 
We are a diverse K-8 school of amazing, hard-working, and creative students.
We encourage all of our students to live out our SHARK characteristics:
 
Safe
Helpful
A Problem Solver
Respectful and Responsible
Knowledgeable 
 
We also encourage all of our K-8 students to read at least 30 minutes, every single day.
Students should read books that they enjoy and books that are at their reading level.
 
A couple of unique parts of our school that we are proud of are: our large, modern, beautiful library; our robust computer and iPad integration into our lessons; and our expansive, beautiful fields for our students.
 
Our friendly, hard-working, student-centered staff is here to serve you. 
Please contact us if you should ever have any questions or concerns.
We are confident that as we work together with our super Shark parents, our students will benefit, academically, and as intelligent, productive citizens in the Bay Area, and beyond.
 
Thank you for reading, and welcome to Shirakawa School.
 
Sincerely,
Kyle Griffith, Principal
