  • Service and Ed Class Students from Mrs. Amarante's class teamed up with Fresno PD to collect and deliver schools supplies to Bigby Villa. The students organized a school supplies drive that lasted for 2 weeks at Sutter. Yesterday 6 of the students went to Bigby Villa to deliver the supplies and volunteer. This year Mrs. Amarante's class has completed over 1,300 hours of community service. They have helped 20 different organizations by collecting supplies, writing cards, and volunteering. The students completed 2 class and 15 small group service learning projects. This group of students has made a huge impact on several organizations in Fowler and the surrounding communities, truly showing that Service Learning is the Wildcat Way!

Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2016-2017 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!
