Principal's Message

Welcome Falcons!  I am incredibly fortunate to be able to serve as the Principal of Fairgrove Elementary School.  I thoroughly enjoy working with all members of our learning community … a community that is expanding this year!  Fairgrove Elementary School has been selected to be the new home for San Luis Obispo County’s Deaf/Hard of Hearing Program.  There are staff members associated with the program and, of course, several new students.  I am looking forward to a great year of learning and working with everyone!


Students:  I am excited about meeting students new to Fairgrove and reconnecting with those of you who are returning!  I very much look forward to learning and working with you.  Throughout the school year I will visit your classes to see you hard at work on your “main job” … being the best student you can be!  I thoroughly enjoy observing you learn from your teachers and know the educational activities you participate in and are challenged by encourage and assist you in being a dedicated student.


Parents:  Learning is best accomplished when there is a strong connection between home and school and you are key to building a relationship with Fairgrove Elementary School.  I look forward to working together with you to provide the support your child needs.  If your personal schedule allows, I invite you to volunteer on a regular basis in your child’s classroom and participate, if at all possible, in Fairgrove Elementary’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).


Community Members:  Fairgrove Elementary School is counting on you to be involved in our school.  We truly need your support and will greatly benefit by your participation in our school events.  Fairgrove Falcons are future community members.  Thanks, in advance, for sharing in their development!


I am committed to supporting our teachers and staff to provide a positive learning culture and educational experience that engages, challenges, and inspires all students at Fairgrove Elementary School.  When our Falcons succeed, then, we all succeed.  I am a lifelong learner and very much look forward to learning alongside each of you throughout the 2017-2018 school year.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your principal.  Go Falcons!
