I have been having many conversations with teachers throughout the district who would like to be a part of the new middle school! So many amazing teachers in CPS! I will be having these meetings until Winter Break and possibly into the first week of 2020. When mid-January hits, we will put together the team of teachers that will lead the charge and be the first faculty in school history!
We will be interviewing for the Assistant Principal position! Many outstanding individuals to choose from. When all is said and done, we will have someone in place who will bring positive energy each day and support our students, staff, and community in the best ways possible.
We will be presenting the result of the Naming Committee's work to the Board of Education. Pending approval, we will finally have a name for the new school and will start to build on that identity. Not too far in the future I will ask for students in the district to help come up with a Mascot for the school. Information will be coming to all the schools soon!
Check out the new pictures of the ongoing construction. The building is coming along as planned and starting to take shape. It is going to be a beautiful facility the community can be proud of.
