Welcome back Rattlers!
I am excited to join and serve the Rattler community as the Principal of East Montana Middle School. I am committed to the success of our students. At East Montana Middle School, it is our mission to develop critical thinkers and problem solvers and to assure that our students grow academically. Together we provide our students a creative and inspiring learning environment so that they become lifelong learners.
This year we celebrate the many accomplishments of our world’s Olympic athletes. One quote from Bobby Knight of the 1984 USA men’s Olympic basketball team comes to mind, “The key is not the will to win. Everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important.” Our Rattler Team focuses on student achievement and making academic gains each school year.
Our TEACHERS prepare our students to be problem solvers, critical thinkers, and succeed on the STAAR exams. Our COUNSELORS and CIS COORDINATOR equip our students with the skills needed to cope with the many pressures of being a middle school student. Our OFFICE STAFF provide our community members with exceptional customer service in the areas of attendance, schedules, and registration. Our CUSTODIAL STAFF maintain our campus safe and clean so that our students enjoy their learning environment. Our CAFETERIA STAFF prepare healthy meals that nourish our students’ brains and bodies. Our SECURITY OFFICER and DEPUTY safeguard our campus for everyone.
This school year, our motto is One Team, One Dream. Together we strive to develop critical thinkers, problem solvers, self-motivators, and responsible lifelong learners. Parent support is crucial. Students must attend school EVERY DAY and attend any required tutoring. Students, we challenge you to be role models, make good decisions, be respectful, be responsible, and be safe. Students, put forth 100% effort so that you succeed in your academic goals. We are One Team with One Dream…Rattlers Rock!
I look forward to meeting each and everyone one of you! We are here to serve this wonderful community. ONE TEAM, ONE DREAM! Go Rattlers!
