Principal's Message

Dear Tiger Families,

W. G. Sanders Middle is proud to be entering its second year as a LEAD School where we embody the principles in Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This year, we are focusing our efforts on…

  • Designing and incorporating environmental reminders of the habits and principles we are expected to live;

  • Improving academics in literacy and numeracy;

  • Showcasing student successes through school-wide leadership and clubs;

  • Creating and tracking the progress of our classroom, personal, and school WIGs (Wildly Important Goals);

  • Introducing students to Student Data Tracking Binders and teaching them to track their own WIGs; and

  • Increasing community involvement through our Tiger Pawtners (Partners)


We believe these areas of focus will have a profound effect on the staff, students, and community. Join us this year in our commitment by taking part in our mission of transforming lives through a combined support of educational experiences that empower all of our students to achieve their potential and dreams.

Tomorrow’s leaders are in your homes, in our school, and in our community. Tomorrow’s leaders are your (our) children. Together, Let’s Unleash the LEADER Within all of us.
