Update From Principal Dr. Desiree Caperton


Dear Fannin Elementary School Parents,

I want to let you know about a change happening at Fannin Elementary School next school year, 2022-2023.  It is with mixed emotions that I share I have accepted the principal’s position at Long Intermediate School. 

While I’m looking forward to this new opportunity to impact students at the 5th and 6th grade level in a larger school, it is also bittersweet to leave my home at Fannin for the last three years.  I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished together during that time, especially establishing the Leader in Me program here, and I cherish the relationships I’ve made with so many of you.  I’m excited to continue serving some of our Fannin families at Long Intermediate, too.

With this announcement, it is with excitement that I let you know our school will remain in good hands.  Bridget Cooper, principal of Bowen Elementary School, will move to Fannin Elementary as the next principal, beginning this summer.  Ms. Cooper brings extensive, diverse leadership experience, serving as principal at Bowen Elementary School for the last seven years, and as an assistant principal at Kemp-Carver Elementary School before that.

I’m excited for you to meet Ms. Cooper and will let you know about that opportunity once it is scheduled. I’m looking forward to finishing the school year strong, with our students on time, at school every day. Forever a Fierce Falcon!

Please have a safe and enjoyable spring break.


Dr. Desiree Caperton
