Dear Parents, Families and Friends,
As I begin my first school year as Principal of Dutchtown Middle School, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to ensure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, it is our goal at Dutchtown Middle School that all students are ready to meet the challenges of the 21st Century without hesitation.
My main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best. Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort!
I am very passionate about the middle school years. Most of my teaching and administrative years have been working with students and staff of this age group. This is an important and critical time of transition – moving from the elementary experience and preparing for the bigger challenge of high school. What happens during these few short years will have a lasting impression on their development and growth.
We embrace the challenges of the future while we continue to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past. Our remarkable staff, involved parents and committed students work together to make Dutchtown Middle School a wonderful and unique place.
I am looking forward to working with you and your student as we work toward an academically successful school year!
Thank you and kind regards,
Ms. Shawana Redmond Griffin
