From the Principal

I'd like to begin by welcoming everyone to the 2017-2018 school year!  My name is Chrissy Harman, and as many of you know I am the new principal here at Nicolas Valley Elementary School.  I have been in the Temecula Valley Unified School District since 2001.  I taught at Temecula Elementary, Vail Elementary, and Alamos Elementary Schools.  I was an administrator at Susan LaVorgna Elementary and Alamos Elementary prior to coming here to Nicolas.  On a personal note, I have two boys of my own.  One is a Freshman at Chaparral High School- Go Pumas!  My oldest is off to college this year at Cal. State Monterrey Bay- Go Otters!  I am looking forward to meeting everyone at one of the many events here at Nicolas.  I know we are going to have a great year!


As has been past practice, we will not be making any class changes for two weeks.  Please continue to be positive with your student even though s/he may have gotten a teacher that is not preferred.  Attend Back to School Night and listen to what the teacher has to say: be open minded.  Many times our students end up loving the teacher that has been assigned.  If you are still unhappy after the two week period, please contact the front office to set up a time to meet with me.  I am happy to discuss each situation individually. Please keep in mind this is not a time to make teacher requests, it is to address specific concerns.


I am ready and willing to address any questions or concerns you may have.  My number one priority is getting into classrooms with students and teacher as much as possible.  I am also in meetings at various times of day, both on and off campus, and unavailable.  I don't want to waste anybody's time, if you should just show up to the office.  Feel free to leave me a message at 695-7180 or better yet email me at  I am able to check my email anywhere, anytime, and will make every effort to get back to you within 24 hours.


I can't wait to meet everyone bright and early on the our first day back to school, Wednesday, August 16!
