Hello, Fontana Falcons!


This year, the Fontana J8 School District is going paperless! Now, not only are you be able to keep up to date with assignments, grades, attendance, and meal balances all at the same place, but you can also view report cards on the portal. Downloading the Infinite Campus app is also a great way to keep informed on the go! By downloading the Infinite Campus app, you will receive real time information regarding your child’s grades on assignments as they are entered into the gradebooks.


Please use the following links for helpful videos about logging on to Infinite Campus the first time and navigating the portal:

We do ask that parents and guardians update their Infinite Campus contact preferences. When we sent the message regarding inclement weather yesterday, we realized that many of you have not signed up to receive the texts that are sent as part of the messaging system. If you are one who texts and wish to receive information that way, please indicate it in Infinite Campus by clicking the box next to the phone you would like to have receive texts. We have included the link to several screenshots below to help if you need them.

Please contact Mr. Stolfe (262.275.6881 ext 203 or nstolfe@fontana.k12.wi.us) with questions.





Welcome to Fontana


Nestled in the hills surrounding Geneva Lake, Fontana Elementary School serves approximately

280 students in grades 4K through 8. We currently have two sections at each grade level, with an average class size of 16. The Fontana teaching team and School Board understand the importance of inclusion, and all of our students are taught in the classroom using a co-teaching model.

We also believe in the power of learning outside the classroom and offer students learning opportunities in different environments. For example, our students take care of the gardens located in our Atrium; the 5th graders spend a week at camp each spring during our Outdoor Education program; our 8th graders have hands-on learning experiences in leadership and teamwork as they attend a day of OWLS (Outdoor Wisconsin Leadership School). New to our district? Read our welcome letter.

If you have any questions about our district, curricula, or philosophy, please feel free to contact Dr. Norton, Fontana Jt 8 School District Superintendent, at snorton@fontana.k12.wi.us or Mrs. Smithyman, our Director of Instruction and Student Learning, at jsmithyman@fontana.k12.wi.us. We can also be reached by phone at (262) 275-6881. We'll be happy to answer your questions or point you in the right direction for finding answers.


See you at school!
