Principal’s Message

Dear Virgil School Community:

It is a great honor to inform you that I have been selected to be the new principal of Virgil Middle School.  In my new role as principal, I will invest my full attention to serve the best interests of students, build systems to build our collective capacities and continue the pursuit of excellence for Virgil Middle School.

I am eager and excited to learn, lead and contribute to attaining or surpassing the following goals for the 2016 -17 school year:

By focusing our direction, engaging in collaborative cultures, deepening our learning, and securing our accountabilities to each other we can achieve these goals and more. When we work together to support students in cultivating moral character, intellectual stamina, persistence and creativity, we are preparing them to shape the future of this complex world. In the book Coherence: The Right Drivers in Action for Schools, Districts and Systems Michael Fullan writes, “It is human nature to rise to a larger call if the problems are serious enough and if there is a way forward where we can play a role with others.” I am humbled by the opportunity to lead and serve to this end as we Believe, Behave and Become!
