New Sycamore Ridge Principal

Dear Sycamore Ridge Families,

Dr. LaRose earlier is retiring from education on June 30, 2020, after a remarkable career that has positively impacted thousands of children, family members, and colleagues.  Anyone who knows Dr. LaRose is aware of her boundless energy, her passion for children, and her love for the education profession!  Dr. LaRose has a wonderful way with people and has helped to develop an amazing school culture and nurture a true sense of community. Dr. LaRose has been in DMUSD since 2004, and her impact on our educational community has been significant. We are so happy for Dr. LaRose and we will miss her tremendously! 

Dr. LaRose’s announcement means there will be a change in leadership at Sycamore Ridge.  I am excited to inform you that Mrs. Chelsea Moore will be the principal of Sycamore Ridge beginning July 1, 2020.  Mrs. Moore has been a part of DMUSD since 2014 and has most recently been the assistant principal at Sage Canyon.  Previously, Mrs. Moore was a teacher at Del Mar Hills Academy and a teacher in the Poway Unified School District.  Mrs. Moore is known for her depth of expertise in curriculum and instruction and her warm and compassionate way with children, parents, and staff.   She is very excited to join the Sycamore Ridge community and is eager to begin as your new principal!

All our best to your families!  We are excited and optimistic about the future for Sycamore Ridge!
