Welcome From Our Principal

Education is very personal to me.  As the first in my family to attend college, I’ve experienced first-hand the opportunities it opened up for me and my family. My success came through hard work, perseverance, and the continued support of my teachers in school.  This is why we, the staff here at Fern Bacon MS, are committed to supporting students in a variety of ways to ensure everyone achieves the highest standard of academic success. My hope is that all children have the opportunity to pursue a higher education to obtain a viable career of their choice.  My dream for my niece, as pictured here, does not waver for your child.  It can be accomplished by staff, students and parents working together to do whatever it takes to achieve success.

Mary Coronado, Principal


ATTEND TODAY, ACHIEVE TOMORROW. The Importance of Being at School Everyday Matters. Missing school is a leading cause of poor academic performance and can prevent students from learning to read well which is the most important predictor of success.
Why Good Attendance is So Important

Why is good attendance so important?

Students suffer academically if they miss 10 percent or more of school days.

Studies show that children who miss too many days in kindergarten and 1st grade often have trouble mastering reading by the end of 3rd grade. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves.
