Letter from Principal

Bob Murphy Thumb

Welcome to Friendship Junior High! I’m proud to serve this outstanding community as your principal for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. Prior to this opportunity, I served as the Assistant Principal for Activities, Athletics, and Music at Elk Grove High School. In that role, I was fortunate to develop strong relationships in this community. I look forward to building upon those and forging new ones.

I’d be inauthentic if I didn’t state that we have unique challenges in front of us this upcoming school year. While much might be out of our control and still unknown, we’d be remiss if we didn’t see the opportunity in front of us. Never before has it been so important for parents and school staff to partner together in the interest of the children we all care about. I take my responsibility very seriously to create an environment that allows for a deep understanding of each of our roles in the educational process. Over the course of the year, you’ll see opportunities for us to connect and I hope you will take advantage.

The quality of our staff and their dedication to our students is unquestionable here at Friendship. As I get to know more of the staff, it becomes increasingly apparent why their reputation for going above and beyond for our students is real. With that reputation and the strength of this community, I’m confident in all of our abilities to rise to the challenge and ensure that during this school year, we can continue to provide a high quality education that meets the needs of all of our students and prepares each of them to be successful for life.

In my free time, my wife Francesca and our newborn son Bert enjoy getting outside and spending time with our families

I look forward to working with you.

Best regards,

Bob Murphy
