Welcome

Hello Firebird Families,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I am excited to be the new principal and carry on the tradition of academic excellence experienced by our students for over 50 years. I plan to continue depending on the collaborative efforts of our amazing students, parents, school staff, and community. We are excited to work together with you this year to continue the tradition.

I am proud to be a native Arizonan and Arizona Wildcat! I am married (22 years) and have a fifth-grade daughter and second-grade son. My children will also be Firebirds this year! As a family, we are looking forward to being part of the Fruchthendler community. I began my career as a high school math teacher at Scottsdale Chaparral High School and then at Catalina Foothills High School. I then started my own business where I created an online math program that was used throughout the State of Arizona. In 2017, I completed my administrative certification and served as Assistant Principal of Roberts Naylor K-8 for the last four years.

Now that we are returning to a somewhat normal year in terms of being in person, I look forward to ensuring all the traditions are kept alive and strong.

If you ever have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to contact me at (520) 731-4400.

Go Firebirds!


Sincerely,
Tim Eriksson
