Dear Carquinez Middle School Parent, Families, Staff and Students,
It is with heartfelt words that I write this letter to inform you that as of June 30th, 2014 will be leaving the position as Principal of Carquinez Middle School/District Common Core Coordinator and embark on my next step in my professional career. On July 22nd, I will start a new job as an Assistant Director of Teaching and Learning for the San Leandro Unified School District. This is an exciting time for me and for my family and I look forward to growing professionally.
I have had the distinct pleasure of serving the students of John Swett Unified School district since August 2000 and will miss this unique and special district immensely. This school year we worked together for the benefit of our students and I proudly watched 120 eighth graders being promoted on June 12th. There are many exciting opportunities that lie ahead for Carquinez Middle School. The Local Control Accountability Plan is currently underway which will provide additional resources to out schools. Also, a bond measure is being placed on the November ballot to build or rebuild CMS into a 21st century middle school to ensure our students are ready to compete in the global economy.
I wish to express my sincere gratitude to all the CMS staff, students and families for making my time here a rewarding and memorable experience. I promise you will be left in good hands as the district will be interviewing highly qualified applicants starting on June 20th.
School begins Tuesday, August 26th
6th grade parent orientation will be Tuesday, August 19th at 10:00 a.m.
Thank you for a wonderful experience and I bid you all a fond farewell.
