Principal's Message

It is an honor to be a part of the Williams community. Williams is a hidden jewel tucked away in a quiet area 45 minutes north of Sacramento. It provides a perfect setting for children to grow in a small quiet town. Thank you for sharing your children; they are truly a gift to us. 

One of our goals at Williams is to serve and nurture all our students. Our teachers work together, interdependently in order to impact their practice in ways that would lead to better results for students, teams, and our school. Our goal is for teachers to engage in collective inquiry to identify essential student learning, create lesson plans, develop assessments, analyze scores and set achievement goals. Our focus is to ensure that our students receive the best instruction from an action oriented team of teachers.

It is my belief that parents are the first teachers of their children, and they play a central role in their child's education. I invite you to participate in open, honest and continuous communication with your child's teachers to ensure a successful home-school partnership. I encourage you to tell our teachers about your child's needs throughout the year.   

As principal, it is important for me that my staff, parents and students become partners in this journey that we have embarked upon. It is essential that all of us come to school every day happy and be ready give it our best. A positive attitude will enable us to become problem solvers in a fun, nurturing environment. 

The passion and dedication of our PTO has continually impacted instruction in our school. Our PTO is an amazing group of people who commit to focus their time, talents, energies and resources for our children's education and welfare. I encourage you to become an active serving member of our PTO.


Thank you in advance for supporting your child's success at school in the classroom and through our parent organizations. Let's all commit to making a greater effort towards communicating with each other. If I can ever be of assistance, please email or call me.
