Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am Michelle Blasko, your French Elementary School Principal. We understand that there will be many changes throughout the year with our District, school, and families. Communication is very important as we navigate through these times. Please ensure that your contact information is correct in your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. 

Our priority remains safety first for our students, staff, and community. Our commitment to you is to provide the best education we can for your child while maintaining a safe environment in any learning format.

We are excited to begin our journey as a Leader in Me school! We will slowly rollout Leader in Me throughout the year. To start, the staff have engaged in training on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. We encourage your family to start exploring the 7 Habits too!

Despite the challenges we are all facing, we are confident that this will be a fantastic year for your family at French!

Hello and welcome to the 20-21 school year. My name is Lindsay Jimenez and I am the Assistant Principal at French.

I would like to echo what Michelle said about this year being a year of changes and flexibility, but that we are dedicated to staff and student safety. 

The Leader in Me Habits are great anchors during uncertain times, so I am excited to hear and see how they will support our students and families this year. 

With limited access to the school building this year, we encourage you to frequently check our website or call with any questions you may have. We look forward to partnering with you for a great school year!


Welcome to our 20-21 school year. My name is Si’Mona Johnson and I am TOSA/Administrative Support. Ditto to what our two amazing leaders have already said. I am excited to embark on my second year serving you all in this administrative role. It is going to be a great year full of many different changes, but we are here to serve you and hope we can make this year of uncertainty as easy as we can. Know that in this virtual world of education our job is to make sure our students, staff, and community members are safe, while making sure we are still providing our students with a quality education. We look forward to working with you and having an amazing experience here at French whether it is during in person on online learning.
