• Welcome to Alta Vista Elementary! My name is Lindsey Helton, and I proudly serve Alta Vista Elementary as the Principal.  While this is my 3rd year as principal, it's my 8th year as an administrator for Alta Vista Elementary and my 15th year in education, all for Waco ISD.  I am wonderfully supported by my husband, Matt, and two beautiful children, Joshua, who is a third grader at Alta Vista, and Olivia, who will be starting Kindergarten at Alta Vista.

    Part of Alta Vista's mission is:  Together we will take pride in ourselves, our school, and the community we know.  

    As principal, I am committed to making Alta Vista Elementary a place where our families, students, and staff are proud to be.  Each of our students deserves a first-class education so that they can accomplish whatever goals they set for themselves.  We are focused on working alongside families to help students meet those goals.  Most importantly, we expect everyone-students, staff, and even families-to continue learning and growing together. Through these efforts, we create a community that gives us pride.
