I am excited to be back for what will be my 18th year at the Fall River School District. The summer was like no other that we have had before. The school year has quite ended yet, and we don’t know exactly what school will look like this fall yet. We are also excited to be welcoming Mrs. Melissa Litheralnd as our full- as our new food and consumer science teacher into the Pirate family. We are also excited to bring back to the Pirate family Mrs. Maureen Gregorio to high school science. We are continuing to finish up the sports complex and regular maintenance items as we hit the middle of summer. One thing is for sure we sure do miss our students.

Along with all of the Fall River staff, I will work hard to continue our focus on pursuing excellence every day. In Fall River, we will build and maintain strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. We will focus on educational initiatives that foster a nurturing and an environment as safe as well can make for our scholars during this time. We will use data to enhance instruction, and we will be consistent with the implementation of newly adopted instruction strategies to increase students’ achievement. We will continue to provide exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students and continue to make Fall River the best school in the area. I anticipate a successful and normal year, as possible, as our team members are excited to support the academic, social, and emotional growth of our students here at Fall River School District.

During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of Fall River the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world-class citizens! Citizens that are ready to master the challenges of an ever-changing future with a solid foundation created here at our school. As principal, my door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best school year yet! I look forward to again working with you and your child, and the Fall River community. 

Your partner in education,

Mr. Brian Zacho
Middle/High School Principal
