Principal Erin Gage
Welcome to Virginia R. Boris Elementary School, the newest elementary school in Clovis Unified! As your principal, I am honored to be part of such an amazing school and community where we are all dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of our children.

During our first three years we have focused on establishing our own unique and special culture, which has been one of the most amazing experiences a school community can share.  Our focus on teamwork to create a school environment that continues the traditions of excellence and commitment to the core values of our school district has given our students, staff, and community a strong foundation on which we will continue to build our educational platform and support our 21st Century Learning Environment. 

As a 21st Century Learning School, our students are supported in an environment that is interconnected in:

  • Content Knowledge and Mastery
  • Learning and Innovation Skills
  • Information, Media, and Technology Skills
  • Life and Career Skills
  • Character and Citizenship

We are also committed to the Positivity Project for the second year, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping America’s youth build stronger relationships by recognizing character strengths in themselves and others. As Chargers, we are BOLD, and strive to live by the mantra that Other People Matter!

Our community and parent support are second to none. We are fortunate to have a strong and involved parent community who have embraced our vision to become a model of excellence for 21st Century Learning, global citizenship, innovation, and shared leadership. We are also very excited and thankful for our new shade structure, which our PTC was able to purchase. Thank you to our families and communities for supporting our fundraisers to make this possible!

This year, our district’s them is Inspiring Excellence. Together, we will focus on inspiring each other, and will make every effort to challenge, support, and prepare our students to be the best they can be in Mind, Body, and Spirit every day. 

We look forward to seeing the many amazing accomplishments of our students, staff, and school community.
