Welcome Back Letter: Principal

Judith Garcia

Message from your Principal Mrs. Garcia:

I would like to welcome you all back to a new school year.   I’m excited to have the opportunity to continue the great work that we have collectively established.  I have had some time to meet with our Milby Feeder pattern in small settings and have really loved getting a preview of what this school year will be at John R. Harris. 

I truly feel that John R. Harris is a special place.  I say this because some of the feeder pattern expectations are already in placed at JR Harris.  Also, I have had the opportunity to observe JR Harris Staff preparing the classrooms and our building to ensure that our kids walk in the classroom to a magical setting.   Mr. Rivas and Ms. Flores started to put our bulletin boards together to welcome our staff back.  Ms. Madrigal, Willis, Cabrera, Larrea, Puente, Gino, Deleon and Nurse Zermento help with numerous projects and systems to ensure a smooth school year.  Ms. Deleon and Dr. Rebecca Brown school support officer has kept me informed throughout the summer to ensure our teachers get supported 100%.  I would like to thank my front office for working so hard to get the office and all the supplies/paperwork up and running.  Lastly, I am also grateful that many of you attended professional development trainings this summer to improve your instructional practice.  

The secret of John R. Harris is that we are people who care about people, but most importantly our children.  I feel very lucky to be part of the John R. Harris team and to be part of a staff that is committed to student success.

With that in mind, please join me in welcoming Ms. Vida Rahmatian and Rosario Quiroz to fourth grade, and Mr. Jose Maria Silva as a 1st grade teacher. In addition, Mrs. Joyce Martinez is joining our team as a fine arts teacher and Mrs. Rosanna Juarez as our Computer Teacher. 

Dr. Brown has been assigned to our campus as our new school improvement officer.  She will be a huge asset in providing support to our campus. 

As a final point, I would like to wish all of you a wonderful school year.  If you have any comments, questions, or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me at 713.924.1860 or email me at
