  • Message from Poulakidas ES Principal

    Posted by Teri Salgado on 7/26/2018

    Dear Students and Families,


    I would like to introduce myself to you as the principal of Nick Poulakidas Elementary School, the new elementary school in South Reno.  My name is Don Angotti; I am currently the principal of Sun Valley Elementary School in Sun Valley, NV.  I started my teaching career at Spanish Springs Elementary School in 1995 and in 2002, opened Double Diamond Elementary School as a 6th grade teacher. I have served as an administrator in the Washoe County School District for the past 14 years and in 2016 was named the WCSD Elementary Principal of the Year.  It is an honor to be returning to this area to once again work with the families and community to open Nick Poulakidas Elementary School

    As you can imagine, there is a lot of work to be done and I am hoping that you all are willing to complete this work together.  I am working with each of the elementary principals at both Brown and Double Diamond to schedule visits at each site so that I can begin to meet you all.

    One of our first tasks is to decide on our school colors and mascot.  This is an important first step as we begin to develop the identity of our school. Below is a QR code and a link to a survey that you can participate in that will help us to gather ideas for our mascot and colors.  Please think about what you believe would best represent our hard working students and dynamic community as a mascot. 

    I look forward to meeting with you all in the coming months and to working with you on committees and focus groups as we open Nick Poulakidas Elementary School.


    Best Regards,


    Don Angotti, Principal

    Special thank you to all of the folks in our community that took the time to thank a teacher this week.  Our school PTO did an amazing job of hosting meals and treats for the staff, all week.  Please join me in thanking all of the staff at DDES, for the fantastic work they complete for your children on a daily basis.
