Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!     


At John Sutter Middle School, we not only pride ourselves on the academic, athletic, and co-curricular success of our students, but in the positive relationships that are developed and the professional support that our students are provided by every staff  member on this campus.  This includes the administrative team, teachers, custodians, bus drivers, grounds crew, and cafeteria workers.  We work extremely hard at creating a safe and supportive learning environment where students feel safe and excel.

We look forward to working with students and parents from the Fowler and Malaga communities. We believe in continuous improvement and strive to be better tomorrow than we are today, which means the combined effort of our parents, students, and staff are paramount.  I would like to 

extend an invitation toour parent community in becoming involved in your child’s education. As a staff we recog

nize the importance of a parent, student, and teacher partnership - and your involvement is crucial.

Communication opportunities:

a. Talk with your child about school

b. Connect with your child’s teachers (notes, telephone, email, etc.)

c. Research your child’s academic performance (Aeries Connect)


Participation Opportunities:

a. Participate on school-wide councils

b. Volunteer to support the school and its programs


Our mission at John Sutter Middle School is simple: to create an exemplary learning community in which every member is valued, students reach their fullest potential, and ongoing improvement is evident. This is the Wildcat Way!


I believe in the Fowler Unified School District and the quality education and many opportunities it provides.  I also am a member of this outstanding community and know education is vital to the growth and future success of Fowler and Malaga. I am extremely excited and proud to be the principal of John Sutter Middle School. I look forward to a great year!
