Message from the Principal

Welcome to Markham Elementary! It is a great day to be a Timberwolf! Markham is a school of approximately 920 students located in Vacaville, California. Markham is home to Vacaville's Dual Immersion Program. Our staff and school community flourish because we believe that all students can learn and succeed. In Spanish, the motto is "Si se Puede!" Our school pledge is recited by all students at morning announcements out on the play yard and is:


I am somebody!

I was somebody when I came!

And I will be a better somebody when I leave!

I am intelligent and strong!

And I deserve the  education I receive here at Markham!


Apart from quality first instruction and targeted interventions, Markham has various clubs to engage students after school. Markham hosts a Robotics Club, Chess Club, School Choir and Band before and after school. Markham also offers Visual and Performing Arts courses after school in theater, dance, art/clay and African drumming.


The Markham PTO and SPICE board are very active parent support groups that conduct the following activities throughout the year:

Fall Festival

Dia de los Muertos Celebration

Winter Festival

Favorite Fella (Father Daughter) Dance

Favorite Gal (Mother Son) Dance

Caesar Chavez Celebration 

Multicultural Day Celebration 

Ballet Folklorico

Beach Day and Day on the Green


Markham also offers parent workshops to our parents on a monthly basis!
