Principal's Message


I truly consider it an honor to serve as the Principal of Biola-Pershing Elementary School. This year, it is my hope that all of our student Jaguars will experience the rich traditions of our school, and that they will also learn new skills that will prepare them to be 21st century learners. I promise to lead an environment that builds student-teacher relationships, deliver clearly researched instruction, and continue to foster community involvement with our school and families. My staff and I all understand that our goal is to support and encourage the success for our students; and that, in turn, will positively impact the community. My truest passion has always been as an advocate for all of our children and to provide a level playing field for them. I look forward to serving our children, you the parents, and our Biola community in this academic year. Respectfully yours, Michael Ota
