At Jackson Middle School, the role of Associate Principal is very similar to that of being a "PARENT" to 2000 children:
To do our best for your child, we need to work together! After all, we have the same goal for your child: to make middle school a productive and happy time in your child’s life! Call us with your concerns – it might be an issue we already knew about; or perhaps it’s something we hadn’t considered or information we need to know to do a better job. In any event, we are here to help!
Just as individual parents sometimes disagree, you may not always agree with us as "parents." If that happens, we ask that you support our decisions at school in the same way we support the parenting decisions you make at home.
Furthermore, by disagreeing in a calm, polite and respectful manner, we can make the best of the situation and model the skills and qualities you want your child to learn and use.
Lastly, don’t be surprised or overly concerned when your child comes home and reports someone was “busted” for something at school. After all, these things will happen because our children aren’t perfect – and neither were we (or ARE we)! But by helping children learn from their mistakes, we are doing our job and doing what is best for your child.
We tell everyone that Jackson Middle School kids are the BEST and we believe it in our hearts! We look forward to our partnership with you this year!
