Principal's Message

  • Dear Famlies of Fletcher Falcons,

    Welcome to the M.J. Fletcher Elementary School website! It is a tremondous privilege and an honor to be a part of the M.J. Fletcher school community. As an elementary school we set the foundation for our 553 students’ education. Fletcher Elementary School is a special place to learn and grow. As a former student of Fletcher,  I am overjoyed to be in a position to positively impact the lives of students and teachers. Fletcher has a deep rooted belief that all students can be successful in their own way, and together, we can all help them forge their own pathway to success, good health and happiness.

    My vision for Fletcher is to continue to build an ideal school environment where students feel safe, comfortable, challenged and engaged in class. Students and staff will celebrate core values and each other. At Fletcher, our teachers will feel supported in their teaching and inspired to try new things. Our teacher's learning lab provides teachers with support and opportunities for new learning to build their capactity to meet the needs of our students.  Teaching and assessments will be standards-based, instruction will be data-driven, and collaboration will be purposeful. Our school campus will stay impeccably clean and beautiful, parents will be involved in school activities and classrooms, and teachers and parents will work collaboratively to support their students.

      It is our mission to help each child develop a love for learning, to help them develop the academic skills and abilities that they will utilize throughout their lives, and to model and develop the character traits which will help them become happy and productive citizens. To ensure we are all working together to make our vision a reality, I will be in the classroom “where the action is” in order to support the teachers, students, and to assess the needs of the school, and of course, where students will achieve academically at high levels. My goal is that together we can make all of these characteristics of an ideal school happen successfully at Fletcher this year. Only together is this possible.This mission requires a partnership between home, school and the community.

    Parents and families are always welcome and we encourage your involvement. Please feel free to stop into the school or call 483-4404 with any questions you have at any time.

    I thank you for taking on this challenge with me to benefit and support your child and his/her experience at Fletcher.

    Falcon Pride!
