Dear Juniper Family,

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! I hope you enjoyed the summer break, and are ready to return to the business of learning. Our dedicated staff has been working hard to prepare for another amazing school year, building on the success and accomplishments of last year.

This will be my first year as principal of Juniper School, and I am thrilled with the opportunity to work together to help our students strengthen their skills and build on their current knowledge. I am an educator with a steadfast commitment to students and families, and a love of learning. I have been a classroom teacher and a vice principal, and I am excited about my new role as principal. I am looking forward to working together to promote the Juniper School community. Please introduce yourself to me in the days and weeks ahead and know that you can always contact me at [email protected] or 530.225.0045 if you want to talk about your student. The Juniper team is proud to welcome several official additions to our staff:

    • Mrs. Dannenberg, Kindergarten, room 12
    • Mrs. Venegas, Kindergarten/1st grade, room 11
    • Mr. Selke, 6th grade, room 1
    • Miss Cambronne, 7th grade, room 4
    • Mrs. Wolden, 8th grade, room 4
    • Mr. Marin Martinez, music, music room

You will be notified of your child’s classroom assignment via phone message by Thursday, August 13th. Teachers will have their classrooms open on Friday, August 14, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. for you to visit before the first day of school. The first day of school is Monday, August 17, 2015. School begins each day at 8:30 a.m. Dismissal is at 2:15 p.m. (grades K-2) and 2:45 p.m. (grades 3-8) every day except Wednesday which dismisses at 1:45 p.m. for all students. The exceptions to this are the first and last weeks of school when there is no early Wednesday dismissal.

For the safety of students, Juniper will host a 45 minute mandatory meeting for all families planning to participate in our afterschool program. There are two meeting times: Monday, August 10th at 5:30 and Tuesday, August 18th at 5:30. Students will participate in the after school program after a parent/guardian attends one of these mandatory meetings.

Our Back-to-School Night is scheduled for Tuesday, August 25th. I hope to see you there.

Warm Regards,
Molly Stimpel                                                                                                                                         Principal
