Letter from the principal...

I believe that the job of America's schools is to develop the full educational potential of each and every child that attends them. I look forward to meeting this goal by working together with the community of Fall River Elementary to ensure a quality education for the children of the Longmont community.
Fall River Elementary is a safe, caring community where all students can feel accepted and secure as they set about their task of learning. Fall River also works hard to create responsible students capable of sound decision making. I look forward to continuing to work on these goals with everyone at Fall River, as I believe these are key components to excellence in education.

I encourage students to set high goals. You can only accomplish what you try and Fall River Elementary is here to support you in reaching these goals. This is your school, and we are here to work with so you can be and do your very best. I look forward to hearing about your needs and interests, and what I can do to help you achieve your dreams.

I invite and encourage parents and guardians to be involved in their children's education. Please don't hesitate to call or come in if you have questions or ideas for improving Fall River Elementary. Your questions are always welcome, and there are many ways parents and guardians can be involved at school. I look forward to working together to deliver excellence in education to all of our students.
I am so excited for another year working with the community of Fall River Elementary to continue something great and look for new ways to be even better. Here's to another year of learning together, and continuing to Have the Courage to Be Outstanding!

Sincerely,

Dr. Jennifer Guthals
Principal, Fall River Elementary
