Principal's Message

Dear Middle School Community, 

As the principal of our wonderful school, I wanted to take a moment to share some thoughts with all of you. The middle school years are a crucial and transformative time in the lives of our students, and I believe it is important for us to work together to create a supportive and empowering environment for them. 

First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude for the commitment and dedication each of you shows in supporting our students. Our community plays an integral role in their growth and development, and for that I am truly thankful. Whether you are a parent guardian, teacher, staff member or simply a member of the wider community, your involvement and care make a significant impact on our students educational journey. 

During the middle school years, our students are navigating new challenges both academically and socially. As educators, it is our responsibility to provide them with a safe and nurturing space where they can explore their interests, develop critical thinking skills and build a strong foundation for their future. 

To our students, I want you to know that we are here for YOU. Middle school can sometimes feel overwhelming, but it is also a time of tremendous growth and self-discovery. Our dedicated team of teachers and staff are committed to supporting you every step of the way. WE encourage you to take risks, embrace challenges, and pursue your passions. Remember, mistakes are part of learning, and we are here to help you grow from them. 

As parents and guardians, your support is invaluable. Your engagement in your child’s education has a profound impact on their success. I encourage you to stay involved in their learning journey by attending meetings, engaging in open and honest communication with teachers and fostering a positive and supportive home environment. Together, we can work hand in hand to create a strong foundation for your child’s future. 

Lastly, I would like to extend my appreciation to the middle school community at large. Your support in whatever capacity, helps in whatever capacity, helps create a compassionate and inclusive environment where our students can thrive. I encourage each of you to lend a helping hand whenever possible, beit through volunteering, attending school events, or simply being a positive role model for our students. Together, we can make a lasting difference. 

Thank you for all your continued commitment to our school community. I am proud and privileged to be a part of such a vibrant and dedicated group. Let us continue to work together to provide our students with the highest quality education and a nurturing environment that prepares them for success both during their time in middle school and beyond. 

Wishing you a wonderfully productive and fulfilling school year. 


Dan Poland M.S. Principal
