Our Principal Ms. Johnson

Principal welcome letter

Dear Parents, Students, and Families,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. I hope that you all had a wonderful summer, are reenergized and ready for school to start. I am excited to be Principal of Priest River Junior High again this year, and look forward to continuing my work with the students, the parents, the staff, and the community.

For those of you that don’t know me, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was a teacher in WBCSD for seven years, and have taught at both Priest River Elementary and Idaho Hill Elementary. I graduated with my Master’s in Educational Leadership in 2014, and took on the role of Junior High Principal starting with the 2014-2015 school year. I have four children at home, two of which I was able to adopt. My passion is the education of children, and helping each and every one of them achieve anything that they set their mind to. I believe that every child can learn, and that we as educators are here to ensure that each child entering our school has the opportunity to be successful in their own way. Children are our future!

At Priest River Junior High, we have some exciting new teachers that we have welcomed to our staff: Frank Weiler will be teaching both seventh and eight grade math; Jeffrey Keenan will be teaching eighth grade Language Arts and eighth grade History; and we will hopefully have a new band teacher that will be coming on staff soon. All of these staff members will be a great addition to the current staff at PRJH.

I look forward to meeting many of you throughout the year, and building a positive relationship in order to foster the educational success of your child. My door is always open, so please do not hesitate to drop in, call, or email, if you need to discuss anything in regards to your child and their education! I look forward to a fabulous year full of learning and growing!
