Principal’s Message

Quarterly Update

August/September/October 2017


As summer begins to wind down and registration quickly approaches, Mrs. Ellis and I would like to say, “Welcome back Grizzlies!!!” 

I would like to quickly introduce myself and my assistant Mrs. Ellis.  My name is Mr. Craynor.  I live in Box Elder County with the love of my live.  I have 4 beautiful daughters ranging from 14 to 21.  I enjoy anything outdoors especially, hunting, fishing, camping, and just spending quality time with my family.  I have 21 years in education and I am thrilled to be the Principal at Rocky Mountain Jr. High. 


Mrs. Ellis has been in education for 16 years. She grew up a short distance away from Rocky Mountain Junior High. She attended Weber State University and Oregon State University. She spent a few years teaching in Oregon before she and her husband moved back to Utah. She has two beautiful children and enjoys camping, fly fishing, gardening, traveling, and spending time with her family. She is very excited to be a part of the wonderful Rocky Mountain community and looks forward to working with students and their families.

Mr. Anderson, our head custodian, and his staff have been working tirelessly to clean and get the Grizzlies’ den ready for a new year.  The building looks great, and we are continually making improvements to the school and its grounds to create a warm and exciting place for kids to learn.  Please thank Mr. Anderson and his staff when you see them. 

We have several new staff members we would like to welcome:

Bailey Clark: Resource

Ken Huddleston: Resource

Natalie Knowlton: Sewing ESL

Timmarie Kallaher: Health

Cydney Webster: Resource Aide

Kimberly Moler: Resource Aide

Ashton Garr: Resource Aide

Rosalie Mckinnon: Registrar

Ginni Thurgood: Student Advocate

The beginning of the school year is an exciting time as students reunite with friends and have the opportunity to bond and create new relationships.  Please encourage your students to be kind, reach out to others, and create friendships that will last a lifetime. 

The students and staff at Rocky Mountain have had a strong tradition of academic excellence. Mrs. Ellis and I want to see that continue.   Our doors are open, if you have any questions and concerns please do not hesitate to stop in and see us.
