Principal's Message

Dear North Shore Families,


It is with great excitement that I write this letter to you as the new Principal of North Shore Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve a school with such amazing students, dedicated staff, and a supportive school community. I am truly grateful to become a part of this community, which has already given me such a warm welcome! 


To our families: I am committed to providing students with the resources and support that they need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we are setting the foundation for your child’s success in school and in life.  


To our students: I am so excited to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. During your time here you will make new friendships, build strong relationships with your teachers, and continue to learn, grow, and have fun, while constantly engaging in the learning process. I am looking forward to meeting you!


I believe strongly in the Bear Valley Unified School District’s core values both professionally and personally:

  • Students First
  • Mutual Trust
  • Dignity and Respect
  • Innovation and Continuous Learning
  • Growth Mindset and Grit
  • Collaborations and Partnerships


Together with our students, families, and staff, we are building a second home where our students can succeed and thrive.  


My door is always open, and I welcome all existing and new families to be active members of our school community as we strive for academic excellence and individual student success. I look forward to celebrating our collective successes during the 2023-2024 school year. 




Lora Mancuso,
