Message from the Principal

Dear Fifth Ward Junior High School families and community,

     As principal of Fifth Ward Junior High, I would like to officially welcome you back to school for the 2022-2023 school year! I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order for children to be successful they must receive support from school and home. A strong partnership and open communication will make a difference in our children's education.

     Throughout the school year, we will use various ways to communicate with you on. Be on the lookout for weekly newsletters (PK-6), event flyers, and a school calendar to come home on a regular basis. Also, your child’s teacher will update his/her webpage through JCAMPUS and Google Classroom. Starting this year, I will send robo texts out regularly with important information.

      Mrs. Hammond, Mrs. Hall, and I are invested in our relationship with you and our community.  I believe that collaboration fosters ownership of a positive school culture. Supporting our children as a team is our priority.  It is a privilege to lead a team of talented educators and work with you to strengthen our community! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. Email is the best way to reach me quickly, my email is Sarah.simmons@stpsb.org.
