Dear Students,

Welcome to Fort Middle School!  I hope that you will have an exciting, productive and rewarding school year.  Our faculty and staff greatly value the contributions that you will make to our wonderful middle school.

I am so proud to be your principal. I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to have the honor and privilege of serving as your educational leader. Everyone has worked hard to create an environment that nurtures, enhances, protects and supports you; as you develop into smart, intelligent, well rounded, servant leaders of our growing community.

In addition to striving for academic excellence it is very important to become involved in our school by participating in clubs, fine arts, sports and other extracurricular activities. I wish for each and every one of you great success as you begin or continue your journey here at Fort Middle School, “The Best Middle School in the World!”
