Jepson Jaguars

Incoming 7th Graders 2021-2022

Step 1: Welcome Future Jaguars!

Hello Future Jaguars!

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Jepson Middle School, I welcome each of you to the Jaguar Family! We are very excited that you will be joining us for the 2021-2022 school year. My name is Ana Farina, and I have the pleasure of serving as the Principal at Jepson; next year will be my 17th year in education and 3rd at Jepson.

Willis Jepson is a special place, with historic ties to our community and a thriving interdisciplinary program. We know middle school can sometimes be scary, but we want to assure you that everything will be ok. At Jepson, our goal is to prepare your student for high school success, and beyond. The challenge is that we only have two years to spend together with your student before they leave our halls.

We have attempted to assemble information in this newsletter that answers frequently asked questions. Here you will find information regarding elective class choices, co-curricular programs, and more. We hope to give you a snapshot of our programs and answer any questions you may have during our counselor drop-in office hours. Through this process, I encourage you to reach out to your soon-to-be counselor Mrs. Ayala should you need any assistance during this time. She can be reached at or by phone at (707) 453-6282. Our counseling secretary, Mrs. Anita Kelly, can also assist and speaks Spanish.

We look forward to meeting you soon Jaguars!

Mrs. Ana Farina

Principal, Jepson Middle School
