Principals Message

Welcome to Freedom Elementary School!  As your principal I am extremely honored to be part of such an amazing community and staff who are all dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of our students.  The staff at Freedom Elementary is just one of the many reasons this is such a special place.  The students are at the heart of every decision that is made at Freedom and they are why we are here.  We believe in creating a student-centered, caring, and motivated environment for ALL students. 

 I pledge to partner with you to make Freedom the ideal environment for your student, where they can grow and thrive before they take off to join the Reagan Educational Center and become Timberwolves.  Freedom has a legacy of academic and co-curricular success for ALL students which will continue into the future because of the strong relationships built with parents, students, staff, and community partners. We will provide a rigorous, and exciting educational setting, a wide array of award winning co-curricular programs, and character development all in keeping with the ideals of Clovis Unified School District and the Clovis East Area.   

Freedom Elementary School was opened in 2002 following the events of September 11th, 2001.  Being built in the wake of the tragic events of 9/11, the community wanted a name that would help students remember and know that Freedom carries with it a responsibility and accountability, and that Freedom is for all people. The name "Freedom Trailblazers" was the perfect answer for our school's name.  Our neighboring Reagan Educational Center joins the Freedom community as we "Blaze Trails of Excellence".

Freedom is our school and our hope is that you utilize this website to see all that Freedom has to offer your student.  We thank you for your continued support and look forward to an excellent school year.  Go Trailblazers! 

Sincerely,
Kristen Belknap
