It is with great pleasure I welcome you to Sleepy Middle School, a Pre-Academy School. As the principal, it is my honor to be the instructional leader. It will be my personal goal to continue the tradition of academic excellence and school pride, as well as providing students a plethora of opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities and community service projects.
As educators, it is our responsibility to create a safe, nurturing environment where every student feels a sense of belonging and a desire to learn. Our mission is to provide a rigorous education that challenges our students to become globally literate by inspiring them to achieve their maximum potential while meeting their cognitive, personal and social needs. This environment is supported by a faculty and staff that offer the finest middle school international education possible. This year will be dedicated to renewing our commitment to parents, students and the community as we continue elevating Sleepy Hill Middle to high levels of performance. We will enforce high expectations for our students and create strong and focused instructional programs that motivate the mind to explore new ideas.
We are looking forward to working together in creating a school where every student will be given the tools, confidence and skills necessary to be successful.
