inspire. empower. thrive.

And we're off! Welcome to another amazing year at Fred L. Williams Elementary School.  Our theme for this school year is "let's get connected." We will be applying the lens of getting connected as we plan events, assemblies and work with each other this year. I'm excited to start my first full school year with my Wildcat family. I am so proud to work alongside Ms. Cristy Burke as we lead Team Williams through an exciting and eventful year. School connectedness will guide us in a variety of ways as we connect with students, families and each other as a staff. Our newly formed collaborative team has come up with some fun ideas to increase school connectedness throughout our campus.

This year, our school counselor, Laura Hernandez, will be scheduling a variety of parent engagement activities to improve health, nutrition and social emotional learning. Please feel free to stop by and get to know me a little better through our new Coffee Talks/Cafecito con la Directora, Family Picnics and other school events. Please reach out to us if you're interested in supporting our PTA, School Site Council and English Learner Advisory Council organizations.

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