A message from Mrs. Metcalf, Principal

me1.30.12.JPG"A Whole New World..." As we think about the new Common Core State Standards we are implementing K-6 this year, new student computers, staffing changes, new extracurricular programs (a school play!) and more, we are embracing this year's PTA theme!  I see change as opportunity, and with that in mind I am so excited to begin my second year as your principal.  Fanning is an amazing partnership of our families, teachers, staff and students.  As we grow and change, we get better!  If I can ever be of assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me (email is usually the quickest way smetcalf@bousd.us ).

Our Motto

The Fanning School motto, "Preparing children for their tomorrows" is painted on the main media center doors.  It serves as a constant reminder to teachers, volunteers, and support staff that every action taken is done with an eye toward each student's future.  Daily, students are reminded they are the focus of everyone's efforts as they enter the media center.
