    Dear Verdi Families,

    On behalf of the staff at Verdi Elementary, I would like to welcome you to the 2022- 2023 school year!  

    As an educational leader, I aspire to collaborate with teachers, students, parents, and community members, to foster a safe and nurturing environment for our future leaders.  It is my belief that access to quality education is an essential right of every child, and a necessary means for them to become successful, contributing members of society. Together, we will work diligently to put the needs of our students first. I am excited to work closely with each of you and to enhance the love of learning of our students. Our students and community will greatly benefit from our collective efforts and partnership.

    The Verdi staff and I are committed to ensuring that every child is given every possible opportunity to thrive and succeed. We pride ourselves in working to bring out the best in our students by creating a supportive environment that embraces the individual learning needs of every child. As a staff, we have continuously challenged ourselves in seeking new opportunities and ways of teaching to enhance our instruction for our students. We are committed to ensuring that every child will be given every opportunity possible to be successful.

    Through a close partnership with everyone associated with Verdi Elementary School, I am confident that we will have successful school year. If there is anything that I can assist you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.  My email address is yfong@washoeschools.net and my phone number is (775)345-8100.
