Dear Bruin Families,


Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! I am honored to write this letter as your newly assigned principal at Box Springs. Box Springs is a place where the staff and community takes great pride in preparing students to become productive members of the global society and I am fortunate to join this great team. Together, we will continue to develop students that are "prepared to successfully enter higher education and/or pursue a viable career path."


I would like to briefly share with a you knowledge about my background, experiences and philosophy on education. I hold a Bachelor's of Arts in Economics from UC Irvine and a Master's in Education from The Claremont Graduate University. In addition, I have a pre k–adult education teaching credential and an administrative credential. I have over 26 of years service in public education of which 9 were teaching various grade levels. The remaining years are in school administration and for the past 4 1/2, I served as principal at another school here in MVUSD. I philosophically believe the entire community has the obligation to help prepare each of our kids for tomorrow and years to come. We must provide a wide range of learning experiences so that each will carry those experiences with them throughout life.


Over the past few years, our district, including you and the community, have made significant improvements in student achievement and I intend to help foster that growth. With that said, I look forward to getting to know you so that our collaboration will take Box Springs to the next level where we WILL have EVERY student succeed academically, emotionally and socially. I invite you to stop in at “The Box” and share your ideas on how we can improve the “Bruin Environment" for all kids.


Again, I am elated to join the Box Springs Family and feel free to stop by for a visit. My door will always be open. Remember, our “1st Day of School” is Wednesday, August 15th and instruction begins promptly at 8 A.M.


Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer,


Gregory White
