Mr. David Austin, Assistant Principal

Welcome Friends and Family to another exciting school year. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting some new faces. The 2022-2023 school year will be an exciting one. We will have an abundance of events and activities going on throughout the school year, so make sure you come on down and get involved.


I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to serve the California, Missouri Community. This community has always welcomed me with open arms and there is not a better feeling than doing my very best to give back to it. It is important to me that all families feel free to communicate and contact me if ever there's a question or concern. That open line of communication is what makes our school and community so close. 


As we begin our new school year, we will have full use of our new additions to the building. The new parking lot and pick-up/drop-off line will be a new and upgraded way of making sure all of our students get home in the safest manner possible.


We have an amazing staff here at California Elementary. They will work extremely hard to provide the very best education socially, emotionally, and academically. Lets kick-off an amazing year and join us for Open House on August 18th 4-7 PM!!
