Principal's Welcome

fred l. williams elementary school

inspiring and empowering every student to thrive every day.

inspire. empower. thrive.

I'd like to thank the Williams community for the warm welcome to the campus. Although I'm new to Williams, some of you may recognize me from the 13 years I taught Kindergarten at Hathaway School or you may have bumped into me during my six years as Assistant Principal at Blackstock JHS.  Today, I am proud and so excited to be a part of this hard working team.  I'm impressed with the work and behavior that I've observed during my classroom visits and during my interactions with students in the cafeteria, playground and all around our beautiful campus.  I'm honored to work alongside our assistant principal, Ms. Burke, so that we maintain great programs, increase school connectedness and plan more fun activities on campus.

Please feel free to chat with me when you see me around Williams and don't forget our monthly PTA meetings and movie nights which are usually scheduled on the last Friday of the month. This month's Movie Night is scheduled for Friday, February 23rd at 6:30 p.m. We will be showing "Despicable Me 3" and our PTA will be on hand to sell snacks and yummy treats throughout the evening.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact our office at (805) 488-3541 to schedule a time to meet.
