Mr. Olson PrincipalOn behalf of our faculty and staff, welcome to Fugman Elementary School where Marlins SWIM with the BEST. We wish to extend a warm welcome to the newest members of our Marlin Family and welcome back our many wonderful families for the new school year. The Marlin educational team believes in building a partnership with our families to bring about the best educational experiences possible for all students. We hope you involve yourself in one of our many parent forums to help direct a guide the focus and direction of our school. Please consider being a part of our Parent Teacher Club (PTC), SART Committee, IDAC Committee, SSC, work as an Art Docent, or classroom volunteer. We are fortunate to have a committed parent community and know our campus and students are better because of the incredible support.
The Marlin Team comprised of certificated and classified staff make it their goal each day to embody the vision of our founding Superintendent, the late Dr. Floyd B. Buchanan, by growing students to be the best they can be in Mind, Body, and Spirit. We offer a rigorous, standard based educational program that embeds technology and collaboration into every day learning. We have high expectations and work diligently to push our students to believe in themselves and their fullest potential. As we work to build reflective, life-long learners, we recognize the importance of connecting our students to school by offering a strong co-curricular program. Whether it is athletics, music, robotics, Science Fair, Student Council, Math Olympiad, and a number of other activities, we have something for everyone!
Our hope is that you utilize this website to see all that Fugman has to offer. Let it serve as a communication tool that provides an easy and fast way to get important information. We urge parents and students to check our website frequently for up to date information about what is happening at Fugman Elementary. 
We work hard to communicate effectively with our students, families, and community. If you would like to stay as current as possible please find us on Facebook at "Fugman Elementary School", on Instagram @FugmanMarlins, and please feel free to follow me @FugmanPrincipal!  
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to all that this school year has to offer. Here at Fugman we are "Inspiring Excellence". Have a great year!
