Welcome, All-Stars!


Dear Esteemed Parents and Guardians,

I hope this message finds you all in good health and high spirits. It is with great excitement and honor that I write to you today as the newly appointed Principal of John Adams. As I step into this role, I am filled with a sense of commitment, passion, and a deep desire to foster an exceptional learning environment for our students.

First and foremost, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for entrusting your children's education to us. I am fully aware of the responsibility that comes with this role, and I assure you that I am dedicated to nurturing an atmosphere where every child feels valued, safe, and inspired to reach their full potential.

Allow me to introduce myself briefly. My name is Laura Quiroz and I join John Adams after serving as Dean of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment at Madera Technical Exploration Center, as a District Academic Coach in Madera Unified, and as an English teacher. I firmly believe that education is a collaborative effort involving parents, teachers, students, and the community, and I am committed to fostering open communication and strong partnerships to ensure the success of our students.

In the coming weeks, I look forward to meeting every one of you at school events, parent-teacher meetings, and other community gatherings. I invite you to meet me in person before our Open House Event at 5 PM in the Adams Cafeteria. More information on our Open House will go out on Parent Square later this week. 

I am a firm believer in creating a supportive and inclusive school culture where each student feels seen, heard, and valued. I will work tirelessly to ensure that we maintain a positive and respectful learning environment that celebrates diversity, encourages creativity, and promotes critical thinking. Thank you once again for your warm welcome and trust. I am eager to begin this journey alongside you all and to witness the remarkable achievements of our students.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful and productive academic year ahead.


Warm regards,

Laura Quiroz

Principal, John Adams
