Principal, Campus Middle School
Dear Campus Families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. Even though this is my thirty-third year in education, the start of a new school year is just as exciting for me now as it was when I first began my career back in 1985 at Machebeuf Catholic High School in Denver. The energy and enthusiasm the kids bring to class, the passion for learning our teachers share with their students and the wisdom and support you, the families provide, is a recipe for a very successful school year. Over the summer, as I reflected on my first year at CMS, I was inspired by the commitment of our students to strive to experience as much of what CMS has to offer as possible in order to attain a well-rounded middle school education.
This school year is off to a fast and positive start. We have welcomed a new class of 494 sixth graders, approximately 150 new families, 9 new teachers and approximately 10 new non-teaching staff members. Our overall student population is about 1,476 and we love them all and will do our very best to provide for them the best that Campus Middle School has to offer. I look forward to getting to know you and your children through conversations and the work we do together to meet their educational needs.
As always, our primary focus is to raise student achievement for ALL students and do our best to ensure they are prepared for the rigors of high school as well as attaining the skills necessary for success in whatever workforce opportunity they choose to pursue. To these ends, our teachers will work collaboratively as a Professional Learning Community, dedicated to our District's mission, To inspire every student to think, to learn, to achieve and to care. This is our focus and we will not waiver from it.
I look forward to developing a strong partnership with you as we seek to fulfill the mission of Campus Middle School:
To empower all students to obtain a rigorous education that inspires a love for lifelong learning in a safe and caring environment.
