Message from the Principal

Dear Parent or Guardian:

  On behalf of the staff at New Haven Middle School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. NHMS staff aims to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

 This past school year NHMS made tremendous gains academically.  Our NWEA scores were the highest and showed growth that we have not seen in recent years.  It is an exciting time to be a Bulldog and we are very proud of our student’s progress.  We will continue to focus on areas that we need to improve.  NHMS is very fortunate to have wonderful students, parents, and staff that make a difference.  It requires a commitment from everyone to make these improvements necessary.  We are determined to deliver excellent mathematics and writing instruction, and we will create a school where safety, respect, accountability, support and excellence are highly evident. 

 I am looking forward to another successful school year working with you to prepare our children for a bright future. We will continue to focus on making our vision and mission the core of our daily work with students, teachers and parents. 

 Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

 I look forward to working with you and your child.
