    Greetings Shumway Parents and Guardians,

    My name is Erica Castorena, and I am thrilled to join the Shumway Leadership Academy family to serve as your new principal alongside our dedicated teachers, caring staff, and community members.  As the Shumway principal, I prioritize building strong relationships with students, families, and the community to foster a learning environment that encourages positivity, happiness, and academic growth.

    My door is always open to you, and I sincerely welcome your input and support.  I am excited about all we will accomplish together for our children and the opportunity to celebrate our collective success this school year.  I look forward to getting to know you and your child in the upcoming months as we continue to work together to cultivate an inclusive, empathetic, equitable, and strong community.  


    Erica Castorena
