    Greetings Fifer Family!

    Welcome back to a new school year filled with excitement, growth, and endless possibilities! As your principal, I am grateful for the opportunity to work alongside amazing educators as we partner with you and your child as we embark on a journey of learning, discovery, and collaboration.

     

    Let us create a community where curiosity is nurtured and every voice is heard and valued. Our school is diverse and rich with unique talents. I encourage you and your child to share your passions, ideas, and dreams with us all.

     

    We are committed to fostering a safe and inclusive space where your child can explore, question, and grow. Our dedicated teachers and staff are here to guide and support each student every step of the way. Together, we will inspire one another, challenge ourselves, and celebrate our achievements.

     

    With great anticipation and warm regards,

    Larry P. Friend, Jr.
