Welcome to the J. B. Fisher Elementary School website, home of the Flamingos! As the new principal of Fisher Elementary School for the 2015-2016 school year, I have the privilege of working with a great team of educators. I am proud to be part of a professional learning community committed to the academic success of each student. I come to Fisher with experience in education as a classroom teacher and a school administrator. Prior to my appointment to Fisher, I served as assistant principal of Aberdeen Elementary School in Hampton, Virginia.
At Fisher we strive to offer a challenging learning environment for all of our students. We will prepare our children with the essential knowledge and skills they need and also encourage creativity and a life-long appreciation for learning. The dedicated staff at Fisher provides a high quality education for every child in our school so that they can discover their passion for learning. We believe that all students can achieve through a supportive, nurturing and rigorous academic environment. We will encourage high academic standards in a positive atmosphere that will inspire students to become valuable members of society. Our learning environment will support excellence in all of our students.
Fisher Elementary School is a wonderful place for students from diverse backgrounds to have a meaningful elementary school experience. We at Fisher strive to create an environment where each student is given the attention necessary to achieve his/her individual success. This happens as we develop strong partnerships with our parents. When parents, teachers, and community members combine our efforts, we will make a difference in the lives of students ensuring they reach their highest potential. We strive to make each child feel valued, our staff appreciated, and our parents and community welcomed. I believe that building strong positive relationships is key to success. We invite you to join us at Fisher Elementary. Feel free to contact me or visit me this year. I look forward to working with you.
Cleveland Walton, III - Principal
