It is with great excitement that I will be able to serve you as the new principal at Carl Sandburg Middle School. As many of you may know, Carl Sandburg has been my home for the past ten years. I have served in the school as a physical education/health education teacher, dean, athletic director, and assistant principal. Over these years, I have dedicated myself to creating positive relationships with all students, staff, and parents to help promote a healthy educational experience for all.
As an administrator, I will continue to create these positive relationships, but I also believe that it is imperative to support all students, parents, and staff members to be the best they can be. Doing so will foster a climate that is challenging, supportive, and engaging to the 21st century student. We will also strive for students to be productive citizens, critical thinkers, great communicators, and creative collaborators, preparing them to be college and career ready.
Finally, I want to emphasize that being a productive member of our school community is so important to the success of our students. Please take the time to support your child with their school work, reach out to your child’s teachers with questions or concerns, join us for family nights, volunteer at sporting events or other school activities, and encourage your child to do the best they can do!
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or ideas to help support a positive school climate for all. My email is email@example.com and my office number is 815-232-0340.
Thank you and I can’t wait to see everyone this fall. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Principal, Carl Sandburg Middle School
