Dear Los Gatos Union School District families, teachers and staff:

It is with heartfelt words that I write this letter to inform you that Principal Rosanne Adona will be retiring from Louise Van Meter Elementary School at the end of June 2013.

During the past 18 years, LGUSD students, teachers, and staff have greatly benefited from Ms. Adona’s leadership, vision, guidance and aspirations. The Board of Trustees will be accepting Ms. Adona’s retirement letter at the Feb. 12 Board meeting.

While this news came unexpectedly, the District Administrative Team is taking the necessary steps to ensure a smooth transition for the 2013-14 school year.

It is our intent to build on our strong momentum and continue in our current positive direction. We are so very fortunate to have the administrative talents and experience of our principals, teachers and staff to guide our future and ground Van Meter Elementary through this transition.

On behalf of the students, families and staff, both past and present, I offer our sincere appreciation for her tireless efforts in contributing to the Los Gatos community. Please join me in wishing our beloved Ms. Adona and her family the very best in their new endeavors.


Los Gatos Union School District Superintendent Dr. Diana Abbati
