Fitzmorris Families and Friends,

Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year!  I am thrilled to be starting my second year working with this incredible community!  I am happy to report that we had very minimal turnover this past year, and that the core of our Fitzmorris Team is the same (all of our classroom teachers are returning)!  This picture of Ollie best describes how excited I am for the upcoming year! Maegen, Ollie, and I had a ton of fun over the summer, and I’m really looking forward to hearing about what you all have been up to!                                 


We will have some exciting updates this year, and thankfully, we are happy to maintain much of the momentum we started to gather last year.  Here are a few points of pride for the upcoming year:

  • Jeffco started 5B bond projects over the summer (thanks again for voting yes on 5B).  Most of our work this summer will help us ensure the safety of our school with new and improved internal locks, and internal and external cameras!

  • We are able to maintain our focus on social emotional learning and restorative practices.  In fact, we were able to hire a full-time Social Emotional Learning Specialist, as opposed to the half-time position we had last year.  This will help us continue our exciting work with the 7 Mindsets.

  • We will continue to work relentlessly to achieve the mission we developed last year: At Fitzmorris we GROW through Grit, leadeRship, empOwerment, and Wonder!

  • We will continue to focus on building a fun and welcoming culture at Fitz, including an increased effort to boost school spirit and pride!

  • We will build momentum with our technology 1:1 initiative to give students even more opportunities to engage in authentic and deep learning that matters to them!

We can’t wait for the year to begin!  Thanks for your partnership, let’s go!

Sincerely,

Johnny Horton
