Dear Jepson Families,
Our students and staff are enjoying cherished school traditions together. We appreciate our active and spirited Student Leadership for organizing a variety of fun activities. We are also proud of our outstanding fall sports teams---Girls Volleyball, Girls and Boys Cross Country, and Flag Football---who demonstrated teamwork to achieve undefeated seasons. We will celebrate our student-athletes at our Fall Sports Banquet in our Gym next Wednesday, November 16 at 7 pm.
Students will receive their progress reports at school on Friday, November 18 to bring home. Please contact your student’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns. We want to partner with you to help all of our students succeed.
This Friday we will observe Veterans Day celebrating the dedicated service of veterans of our armed forces. School will not be in session.
We wish you well as we approach the holiday season.
Tom McHale, Principal
Joe Cooney, Assistant Principal
Jackie Carmona, Dean of Learning Support

Meet our NEW Counselor, Ms. Chabeli Lopez!
My name is Ana Chabeli Lopez; I go by my middle name Chabeli. I am very excited and feel very honored to serve as your School Counselor this year!
My journey began in the Migrant Centers located in Madison, CA. As a K-12th student, I was part of the Migrant Education Program due to the fact that both of my parents are farm workers and we constantly moved. Living in the center meant that we would live here in California during the farming season and then we would travel to Michoacan, Mexico–my parents' birthplace. My schooling was very unique and I struggled a lot in school. Going to different schools and switching back and forth was hard. I am beyond thankful for my Migrant Advisor who helped me pursue higher education. It is because of my experience that I believe in counseling and the impact it has on students' lives.
I graduated from Esparto High School and went on to pursue my Bachelors in Child Development from California State University, Sacramento. Stingers Up! During my undergraduate, I was fortunate enough to work as a mentor, coach, and advisor where I found my passion for counseling. I am currently in my last year of Sac State’s Counselor Education Program. Aside from work and school, I love to craft, read, play squash and disc golf!
Ms. Chabeli will be at Jepson on Thursdays and Fridays!
