I am thrilled to be the new principal at Gardner Newman Middle School and want to welcome you to the 2019-20 School year. As your new principal and alumna, it is my sincere pleasure to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our Mustang students. We are committed to ensuring that your children receive the best support to be successful in our ever-changing world.
One of our focuses for our staff this year is to participate in Collaborative Professional Learning communities (PLC’s). During our PLC meetings we will continue to emphasize the importance of student performance to drive our instructional decisions by studying, reflecting on, and growing from student performance data. Parents are encouraged to log in to Infinite Campus to monitor their child’s academic progress and attendance.
Families, teachers, support staff, community members and administration are all part of our Mustang Family. Our Mustang Family all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially and emotionally. Please encourage your child to get involved in at least one extracurricular activity. GNMS has a place for every child. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. It takes a village!
