Welcome to Niota Elementary Photo of Jon Franks

I would like to welcome you to Niota Elementary School.  I am truly excited about this new school year.  We have many new teachers and staff members joining our team this year.  Each new teacher and staff member is eager to make this a successful school year.   It's going to be a great year at Niota.  Thank you so much for your support.  If I can ever be of assistance to you, please don't hesitate to contact me. 

Sincerely,
Jon Franks
