Principal's Message

  • Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!  My name is Stephen Whynott and I am extremely excited to serve as the John Jacobs Elementary School Principal. I am beginning my 6th year in the Washington Elementary School District, as I was the Assistant Principal of Desert Foothills Junior High School for the past 5 years.  

    As we embark on a new school year, I am looking forward to meeting each and every family this year, while working with you to ensure your student thrives both socially and academically in a nurturing and safe environment as well as re-connecting with our current families.  Our teachers and staff are ready to welcome families back, and to celebrate all the fantastic things that will happen at John Jacobs this year. 

    Please follow our John Jacobs Facebook page to be up to date and in the loop of the amazing events we have at our school! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 602-896-5700. We look forward to seeing all of our students on Monday, August 9th for a wonderful opening of school.
