Hello Bloom Families,
Welcome to our Bloom website. My name is Mrs. Lucinda Peralta Brunenkant and I am thrilled to serve as the Principal at Bloom. My husband and I are Tucson natives and are proud to have attended TUSD schools.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree at the UA in Elementary Education with a Bilingual endorsement and my Master’s in Spanish Linguistics. Later, I earned my Principal Certification from NAU. I have taught all grade levels from Kindergarten to 6th grade, including Dual Language classes. I am passionate about students’ learning and effective teaching I and am wholeheartedly committed to your child’s educational experience.
Here at Bloom our first priority is your child. We are committed to providing a safe and caring environment where every child feels valued and respected. Our Bloom Rules are Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Safe and Be Kind. Our awesome students and parents installed the BE KIND mural outside our front entrance; this is daily reminder for us to enter with a kindness mindset.
We offer a variety of programs here at Bloom, including Two-Way Bilingual Immersion or TWBI. Our Spanish Immersion model begins in Kindergarten and 1st Grade with the students immersed in the Spanish language for 90% of the day. The goal is to promote bilingual, bicultural and bi-literate students who can offer specialized skills for our local and global society.
In addition, we are an Inclusion school; this is a unique model which includes our Exceptional Education students in the General Education classroom every day.
This year we are an official OMA Gold school! Our Arts Integration Specialist, Robin Colwell works with our classroom teachers to integrate the arts into the core content.
Also, we offer the following programs:
Band and Orchestra for 4th and 5th graders
Family Literacy Nights
Family Math Nights
After-School Clubs in Lead Guitar, Lego, Board Games, Technology and Girls On The Run
Boys and Girls Basketball Team
We greatly value our parents and community, so please feel free to come in and visit. Ms. Ricki and Ms. Sandy are in the front office and would be so happy to welcome you and answer any questions you may have about our school.
Again, thanks for visiting our website!
In your service,
Mrs. Lucinda Peralta Brunenkant
