A Message from the Principal
I am excited about continuing to serve as the principal of this great school! The faculty, staff, and I welcome you to what will be an outstanding school year. We are looking forward to a working, supportive relationship from all of our students, parents, and all stakeholders during the 2017-2018 school year. We are St. Andrews Middle School, a leader in transforming lives through education, empowering all students to achieve their potential and dreams. Our theme this year is “GREATNESS. It’s in our DNA!”
The vision for St. Andrews Middle School is as follows:
St. Andrews Middle School, in collaboration with an engaged community, is committed to ensuring that each learner achieves his/her potential in a safe, caring, academically challenging and diverse learning environment that will develop productive citizens for a changing world.
Together, we will improve academic achievement in all areas. As you have read in the vision statement, we can only reach this goal with your support. It truly takes a village! Our school-wide goals are outlined below.
· Create a safe, orderly environment that fosters effective teaching and learning.
· Improve culture and provide quality customer service to the community and entire public.
· Use the Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI) model to improve mastery of content standards.
· Use data and assessments to monitor and adjust instructional practices.
· Implement a literacy plan that strategically addresses targeted literacy skills to improve reading levels of all students.
Middle school is a critical time when your child will develop life-long habits. We need you to work with us as we prepare him/her to be a productive citizen in a changing world. Being on time, prepared, and having a positive attitude are qualities that will help our children achieve success as they venture into other stages of their lives. We want you to be proud parents of a child who attends St. Andrews Middle School. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please give us a call. We are here to serve you!
