Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am excited and honored to be the new Principal at Priest Elementary Middle School. Previously, I was the Assistant Principal for the last three years. Being the Assistant Principal allowed me to help build and support our Priest community. My goal as a Principal is to develop your child's academic, social, and emotional capacity to foster growth. In this educational environment, our students have a lot to navigate socially, emotionally, and educationally and as a school, we are here to support your child. Students must demonstrate discipline, respect, enthusiasm, accountability, and maturity, allowing them to D.R.E.A.M. big to fulfill all their future endeavors. As the Principal, I will ensure that we provide the best environment and academic resources.
Priest Elementary Middle School offers the best core content by using the EL curriculum and the Eureka curricula. The school provides students with science and social studies along with elective courses, which help make them well-rounded scholars. Highly qualified instructors implement the curriculum to ensure students have the greatest understanding of the content. Our staff supports one another to create a safe environment emotionally and physically. Our school environment will educate, celebrate and provide reinforcement to build your child's capacity academically.
The school needs your support every day to ensure that your students are present and prepared, as well as ready to take advantage of all of our educational programs. Priest wants to work in partnership with you collaborating to build lifelong learners who understand and take advantage of the power of knowledge. Parents are asked to be in constant communication with teachers and staff to know how to best support their child. Each week, teachers will send out a communication to parents to keep them up to date on different events and activities within the school. Throughout the school year, Priest will host social and academic programs. Parents are asked to be a part of all events to enrich their child's academic setting.
Again, Priest Elementary Middle School is excited to educate your child for the 2022-2023 school year. The first day of school starts on Monday, August 29th, 2022. The school day begins each morning at 8:30 AM and ends at 3:40 PM. Students will wear uniforms that will be provided by the school. In closing, on behalf of the staff, I want to thank you for choosing Priest Elementary Middle School.
