At Celestino Mauricio Soto Jr. Elementary School, we are dedicated to making a difference toward helping our students achieve success. We have a talented team of hard working, devoted, and outstanding educators who are willing to strive beyond excellence to help our students excel in life. At our school, students are not only receiving a quality education but are also given the chance to express their creativity and personalities through various programs. Our after-school programs include the science club, basketball, karate, art, choir, and spirit club. Our Talented and Gifted academic program also provides an avenue for students to express their creativity and be provided with the skills to become productive and responsible citizens of the 21st Century through activities such as multicultural study projects and web site design.
In addition to the core curriculum, students are given many opportunities to explore their creativity in the
school’s science lab and through music and art programs. We are striving to address all of our 21st century learner's needs with activities such as web site design, Lego Robotics, multi- media projects and many other ideas geared towards exposing our students to more hands on technology. Our school offers all-day prekindergarten classes, where students are prepared to enter elementary school ready to read and learn.After-school programs include basketball, soccer club, science club, karate, art club, and choir. Students will be given the opportunity to volunteer to assist with the Special Olympics in May. As part of the school’s parental involvement program, parents and volunteers meet and hold activities monthly, and the school also offers adult English-as-a-Second Language classes.
