Dr. Bonomo, Principal.

I am so happy and proud to be a member of the Fayette Family and the West Vigo Community!  I believe that we are one big family working toward a common goal: success for all students.  I feel that we are extremely fortunate to be able to work together daily in order to accomplish this goal.

Student success is determined by the amount of participation of all parties involved.  Open communication is a must in order for everyone to be on the same page and working together.  If everyone works together for the benefit of the child, success will be attainable.  Student success is measured by the needs and goals of each individual child.  Students should be able to participate, communicate, and advocate for themselves daily. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time in regard to items of concern or praise.  I appreciate all feedback, both positive and negative.  In order for us to work together collaboratively, we must communicate.  In order for our school to be at its best, we need to know what items need to be improved upon and which ones need to stay the same.  I always say, "I cannot help or fix a situation if I do not know that one exists!”  Please note that I have an open door policy.  My door is always open to members of the Fayette Family: students, parents, teachers, staff, and the community.  I respond to e-mail, phone calls, or meetings.  Please call prior to coming in for a meeting.  I am often out of the office and in the classrooms spending time with our students.  Also, I have meetings out of the building at times.  I would prefer to set up an appointment with an individual in order to be able to devote my full attention to the scheduled meeting. 

Thank you to EVERYONE for the continued support and cooperation at Fayette.  It is a wonderful place to be.  I am honored to be a part of this school and community.

I am very proud of my family.  I have three wonderful children (twin daughters and a son) and an amazing husband.  My children keep my husband and I very active by being involved in many extra curricular activities.  We enjoy spending time together while traveling, supporting the CUBS, swimming in our pool and visiting with family and friends.  I am extremely appreciative of my extended family: parents, mother-in-law and sisters/brothers-in-law for all of their love and support of me, my husband and children!  We couldn't do it without them! 

I love to laugh and my favorite activity is laughing so hard that I cry! :)
