Principal's Message

Welcome back, Raider family!

I am so excited to see all of our students and families again! We have been very busy this summer with construction and cleaning projects, planning for educational opportunities, and preparing for all of your academic and social needs for the 2019-2020 school year!

I encourage all of you to get involved with something during middle school. Whether it be sports, music, clubs, student council, volunteering at school or in the community, or anything to help your fellow man, please get involved! As middle school students, you will be going through a lot of changes and having an opportunity to share this awkward phase of life with someone else who understands it, is so valuable.

At school, we want you to have the best opportunity to thrive, learn, succeed, and enjoy your enviornment and those in your social circle. We are always here to help. Please don’t hesitate to call upon one of the staff members if you should need anything!

The easiest way to ensure academic success for this year is to come to school ready to learn, take pride in your work and homework completion, study for tests, ask questions, and attend school every day! Your teachers and I want to see your best and help you establish good skills to help you for the rest of your life. That’s what school is….training and learning for things yet to come!

I personally love each and every member of my Raider family and can’t wait to see what blessings come of our year ahead! Please let me know how I can help in any way! Have a wonderful 2019-2020 school year!
