Principal's Message

Greetings and welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Kennemer Middle School! It brings me immense joy to continue our journey together as the principal of this remarkable school. The warmth and enthusiasm that I experienced during my first year with the Kennemer family have only grown, and I am truly honored to be a part of this incredible community. I am looking forward to building upon our successes and making this academic year a memorable one for your children.

As we embark on this new school year, I am excited to bring my 28 years of educational experience to the table. Having served in various roles, including teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, and principal, I am committed to advancing our mission of engaging, equipping, and empowering all scholars to reach their full potential.

Our theme for this year is "Let This Be the Year," and it encapsulates our collective spirit and dedication to making this year a transformative and unforgettable one. Our dedicated team is poised to embrace fresh challenges, discover innovative ways to engage students in the learning process, and prepare them for their future endeavors. Each day your children step into our school, they will be encouraged to embrace the possibilities of this year and aim for personal growth like never before.

I am eager to collaborate with each and every one of you to ensure that we provide the best possible support for our students. Together, we will cultivate a culture of growth, where every student can thrive and excel. I am excited about the opportunities and adventures that this school year holds, and I am confident that, as a community, we will empower our students to reach new levels of success here at Kennemer Middle School.

Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education, and I am excited to witness the growth and accomplishments that "Let This Be the Year" will bring. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or our dedicated staff with any questions, concerns, or ideas you may have.

Here's to a fantastic year ahead!
