Welcome to Southport Elementary School

Greetings Southport Families,


My name is Matt Ainsworth and it is my sincere honor to send this letter introducing myself as the new principal of Southport Elementary. Working at Southport for the past fourteen years has been a wonderful experience and I am excited to lead Southport to new heights in my role as principal. 


It is a privilege to work with a brilliant and dedicated staff of educators at Southport where the deciding factor in every decision we make is what is best for students. With new math and language arts curriculum, the second year of the VAPA program, new elective options for middle school, a focus on technology in every classroom, and the continued support of parents, volunteers, and the Southport community, the 2017-2018 school year will set a new standard in academics, citizenship, and behavior for our students.


In early August, you will receive a mailing from Southport with important information, including your child’s teacher for the upcoming school year, information from our wonderful PTO, and details regarding our back to school BBQ. The back to school packet of papers that has been traditionally mailed home will be given to your child on the first day of school. That packet is your child’s first homework assignment and all required signatures and completed forms need to be returned in the accompanying envelope.


I hope you all enjoy a relaxing, restful, and safe summer vacation and we look forward to seeing you back at Southport in August.

Thank you again for your continued support. If you ever have any questions or wish to meet with me, please don’t hesitate to call Southport at (916) 375-7890 or email me at MAinsworth@wusd.k12.ca.us
