Welcome Message

Dear Parents:

I am excited to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year as the new principal of Pacoima Middle School. As we prepare for this upcoming school year, I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning with our students and staff, and partnering with you to nurture the ongoing development of your child. My main goal as a school leader is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supporting learning environment.


Your participation in your child’s education is one of the most important factors in his/her success in school. I encourage you to play an active part in your child’s education by attending important school events, volunteering and participating in various school activities, and joining PTSA and other committees. Working together we can ensure that your child receives a quality educational experience.

Best regards,


Simer Garcha, Principal
