Middle School Principal
Welcome back, everyone, to the 2021-2022 school year! This summer our faculty and staff have been working hard to prepare for this year and I am honored to join this dedicated Middle School Family as your new principal! This is my twelfth year in education, having served previously as a Foreign Language Teacher in grades 5-12 and a Middle/High School Assistant Principal for the past four years. I have been fortunate to speak with and meet many of our USMS families so far, and I look forward to meeting all of you as the school year gets underway.
As always, our Middle School is dedicated to providing all students the opportunity to develop academically and socially in a safe and positive learning environment. In order to meet this goal, we will continue to provide students with challenging academic courses while offering support to help our students achieve their best. We will also continue our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) program which we fondly call our Way Of the Wolf (W.O.W.). This school-wide, research-based system supports our school community in teaching and promoting a safe
learning environment for all students.
In addition to celebrating our students through the Way Of the Wolf, we will be welcoming back many extracurricular activities and athletics. Students, please get involved in activities you enjoy or try something new! These are fantastic opportunities to make new friends and find new talents you may have never known you had.
Our Union Springs Middle School Handbook will be coming home with your child the first week of school. This handbook includes contact information for our teachers, our code of conduct, and our acceptable use policy for technology. Please review the code of conduct and the acceptable use policy with your child, sign these documents, and return them to the Middle School office by Friday, September 24th.

5th Grade Orientation, September 1st at 5:30 p.m.
