Principal's Message


Dear Ynez families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. I am honored to be the newly appointed principal at
Ynez School. It is with a warm heart that I return to Ynez School as I was a student here when I
was in first grade. Throughout the years, I continue to hear wonderful things about the school,
students, staff and community. I am excited to be a part of such a wonderful school again.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I have been with the Alhambra Unified
School District for 26 years. I started my career as a classroom aide and knew then that
education was the path for me. Since then I have worked at Garfield, Monterey Highlands, Park,
Emery Park and Ramona School in a teaching or administrative role. I am a lifelong learner and
believe that all students are able to learn and obtain success. It takes a community to raise a
child and with your partnership, I hope to foster and continue to build that supportive community
that will guide our children in achieving their potential.

Our goal is to strive for student well being and academic success as we look innovatively at
student engagement and instruction to prepare our students for college and career. I look
forward to working collaboratively with the staff and community to build strong foundations for
our students. Parents and families are vital components of our team, therefore I invite you to
attend parent meetings this year so that we can obtain your input or provide you with
information. The website will be updated and meetings will be posted there along with
Blackboard Connect messages. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions or
suggestions. I value your interest in our school and our students' success.

The Alhambra Unified School District and I will be sending more information about the start of
the school year in the upcoming weeks. I look forward to a great year ahead and meeting you all

Warm Regards,

Janice Phan Ed.D
