Letter from the Principal

Brandon Wojcik

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged, and ready to start a new school year. As we ramp up for the start of school here, I am looking forward to seeing everyone again in a few weeks. I welcome and value everyone’s positive energy and dedication to our mission and culture, and I look forward to working with you and your children. 

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for their first encounters with students. Our amazing office staff are registering new families, ordering needed materials, and updating student files. Our hard-working custodial staff have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the building and moving classrooms for the new middle school model.

Each year brings positive change. This includes a few additions to our staff and some location changes for existing staff. We are delighted to welcome Mrs. Erin Boulanger, our new ELA teacher, who actually started late last school year.  We are also sad to report the retirement of long-time middle school science teacher, Mrs. Kathy Hubbard.  We appreciate the many years of service to our students and wish her well on her new adventure.  We are in the midst of seeking out the best candidate for her replacement. 

The other big news is the implementation of the final phase of our new middle school model.  It started this summer with a week-long transition camp that was well attended by our incoming 7th graders.  It was filled with academic time, STEAM projects, and team-building activities to help alleviate the stress of coming to the high school for our youngest population.  We have also moved all of our middle school classes to one section of the building and identified one teacher for each middle school content area.  Student lockers are now right outside their classrooms.  This move will alleviate the need for these students to be spread out around the entire building.

And finally, a word regarding student placement.  A great deal of time, effort, and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2019-2020 school year.  Careful consideration was given to input from staff, students, and families. Classrooms have been balanced academically and socially. Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level.  Moving students is difficult without causing imbalances and inequities.

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year.  I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.  Please stop by and say hello. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.

Best regards,


Brandon F. Wojcik
Jr.-Sr. High School Principal
