Principal’s Message

Greetings and welcome to Johnson Elementary School, the home of the Jaguars!  I am thrilled that you have decided to view our school’s website in order to learn more about the wonderful students, staff, and programs we have to offer.  Johnson Elementary has a reputation of excellence and we will continue to strive to become the best.  We have already begun to embark upon a new school year with great enthusiasm and anticipation of new opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole.

Every day we work to shape our children into life ready adults through the lens of innovation, relevance and equity. This is successful when the lines from home, school and local community intersect. We are all in this journey together. Children thrive when surrounded by support inside and outside the school walls.  Our school community is dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience.  While the VA Standards of Learning is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to provide leadership opportunities, character education and exposure to the technologies in order to prepare students to compete in an ever changing world.

We encourage you to visit our beautiful school and see that we are a school committed to children.  You will find that this is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners.  To our parents, we believe that your involvement is an essential component to the academic success of your child.   I encourage you to visit our website often, meet your child’s teacher and to get engaged in all that Johnson has to offer.  Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated!

I look forward to partnering with you on behalf of our future leaders!
