Dear Families,Mary Anderson

I am honored to be the Principal of Fruchthendler Elementary. I come to you with a variety of experiences in both elementary and middle school. I moved in to school administration, first, as a principal at Miller Elementary School and later transferred to Lineweaver Elementary School. At Lineweaver I was blessed with a wonderful staff, and together, in a very short time we were able to improve the entire academic environment.

On a personal note, I am married and my husband Todd and I have two wonderful sons. Both of my boys are products of a wonderful TUSD education. They were both active in athletics and were both recognized academically with National Merit honors. The reason I share this with you is to let you know that I have “walked in your shoes”. I’m excited to help you and your family experience these same joys. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and having a fabulous school year.

We are excited about all the wonderful plans we have for your children this school year. We will have Opening the Minds through the Arts, Computer, Spanish, Korean, and P.E. instruction, and a Counselor, Curriculum Service Provider and Library Assistant. Our teachers are skilled in a variety of areas which include OMA, Common Core (National & Arizona’s State Standards), GATE, and a wonderful program entitled, Move on When Reading/Balanced Literacy. The staff and I have a plethora of tips on how to take an active role in your child’s education. Please feel free to contact me or any staff member. We are always happy to help.

Together, we will build a strong partnership for the success of our children.

Your Partner in Your Child's Success,

Mary Anderson Signature
