A Message from Mrs. Metcalf, Principal

me1.30.12.JPG When we talk about “building” this year at Fanning, we won’t be referring to earthquake reconstruction!  Thanks to upgrades in the new main building we returned to last May, our focus will be building 21st Century skills in all our students.  In addition to updated energy efficient lighting, new paint and carpet, and retrofitted steel ceiling beams, the “new” Fanning offers students flexible furniture that promotes collaborative work and the most cutting edge technology in the district. I am excited to begin my fourth year as your principal back at Fanning, where we will utilize our new furniture and technology to prepare students to collaborate, communicate, be creative and think critically. If I can ever be of assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me (email is usually the quickest way at 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.
