It is my privilege to welcome you to the Buckner Fanning School at Mission Springs (BFSMS). The staff and I are most thankful that you have chosen to send your child to our school where we are committed to an exemplary Christian and academic education. We know that you have many choices regarding your child's education so thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with your precious child. We are excited about everything this school years holds for your child and our school.

The Buckner Fanning School at Mission Springs is a fully accredited K-8 school through AdvancED (please note the Pre-K and High School are not included in this accreditation).  The accreditation requires an ongoing improvement process so the staff and I will continue to ask for your input as we build upon the great programs that are currently in place.

Core Knowledge is a very rich and exciting curriculum and it gives the teachers the opportunity to immerse your child in a body of knowledge that will enrich his/her life both now and in the future.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the students, staff, and parents at BFSMS.

Parents, I know you are your child's first and most important teacher so I look forward to working together as we create extraordinary opportunities for your child. Please know that my heart and my door are always open to you.

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I believe that many great days await those of us who are blessed to be a part of the Buckner Fanning School at Mission Springs. I am excited to be on this journey with each of you as we experience God's plan for us both individually and collectively.
