Principal's Message

Greetings Cerbat families,

It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction as the newly appointed principal of Cerbat Elementary. I am honored to join a school community where success is the only option.

I attended San Jose State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. I also obtained a master's degree from the University of Texas at Arlington in Educational Policy and Leadership. I have been involved in education for 25 years at every level, from elementary to high school. Most recently, I served as the assistant principal at Hualapai Elementary. 

I wholeheartedly believe that ALL students can learn at high levels and become the best version of themselves. It is my goal to ensure that our children continue to receive a quality education in an environment that is safe and nurturing everyday.  I am committed to working with our families, staff, and community to support our children in reaching their maximum potential.

In order to do this we will focus on:

  1. Establishing systems and procedures
  2. Building positive relationships with students and staff
  3. Implementing effective discipline, designed to improve behavior

In closing, I look forward to our first school year together, learning and growing with our amazing students, dedicated staff, supportive parents, and community.  

Best Regards,

Mr. G. Russell Skubal Jr.
