Temecula Preparatory School welcomed Assemblywoman Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, on Thursday for a tour of its French Valley campus.

The school was among two in the Temecula Valley Unified School District that Waldron visited Thursday in conjunction with America’s Legislators Back to School, a National Conference of State Legislatures program.

Waldron’s tour of Temecula Preparatory School, a California Charter School authorized by the Temecula Valley Unified School District, was hosted by TPS Principal Terri Marek, according to a news release.

The assemblywoman's tour began in a high school geometry and Latin class and continued with the eighth-grade history class along with a brief stop at the Kindergarten drama class, where young students were performing “Jack and the Beanstalk," according to Denee Burns, director of development and public relations for TPS.

The school's seventh-grade theater and choir classes also welcomed the local legislator, with the choir performing a Latin-based song.

Waldron was able to interact with the eighth-grade students in particular, Burns said, handing out informational pamphlets on the California legislature and explaining how state government works.

“We were delighted and privileged to have Assemblywoman Waldron visit our campus yesterday," stated Temecula Preparatory School’s Headmaster, Scott Phillips, J.D. "She could have chosen any of the other high performing schools in the district, but we are honored that she chose us, one of the district’s few charter schools.” 

Just prior to her arrival at Temecula Preparatory School, Waldron had stopped in at French Valley Elementary, where she interacted with a fifth-grade class.

Accompanying Waldron during both visits were TVUSD Governing Board President Dr. Kristi Rutz-Robbins and District Superintendent Tim Ritter.

Waldron was elected in 2012 and represents the 75th State Assembly District, which includes Temecula as well as Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Rainbow, San Marcos, Valley Center and Vista.
