Welcome Rocket Family, my name is Mr. James Herron, and I am starting my 3rd year as Principal of Fayetteville Middle School. As we begin the 2021 – 2022 school year, let me thank everyone for their support over the last year. The students, parents and staff all stepped up to make last year a success, and we could not have made it through without everyone’s support. We would like to welcome two new staff members to the Rocket Family this year. Mrs. Grippa will be taking over as the new intervention specialist for grades 6 and 7. Mrs. Grippa comes to us from RUHL and has been teaching for the last 6 years. Ms. Smith will be taking over for the Multiple Disabilities room, as Mr. Stacy has moved to the high school PE position. Ms. Smith will be entering her first year and comes to us from Cedarville University. We are excited to have them as part of the Rocket Family. We will start the roll out of PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) this year and look forward to a positive school climate for students to learn and grow. With the beginning of a new year, we hope everyone is excited to return to school and ready to get to work. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the school at 513-875-2829. Let’s have a great year and as always… GO ROCKETS.
