Greetings Panther Family and Friends!

On behalf of the staff at Falling Creek Middle School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year! We look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children achieve their highest potential. As partners, we share the responsibility for each child’s success and want you to know that we are committed to excellence.

We commit to building collaborative relationships; maintaining a focus on fostering a nurturing and safe environment for your child; using data to inform and guide instruction; and consistently implementing strategies that promote rigor, increase student achievement, and provide enrichment and acceleration opportunities for all students. Excellence will be our standard! It will be our motto and our measure!

We believe in our students, in the power of partnering with parents and the community, and the expertise and insight of our teachers. Let’s make this year our best year!

With Panther Pride,
Principal Ortiz
