Dear Keller Family,
On behalf of the Keller Dual Immersion Middle School staff, welcome to the new school year! I hope the summer has been an enjoyable one for you and your family. It is my honor and privilege to continue to serve as the principal of such a dynamic learning community. The beginning of a school year is an exciting time. I look forward to the partnership we will develop as we seek to meet the emotional and academic needs of our students. We are fortunate to have the majority of last year’s staff returning to continue the amazing work. However, we did say goodbye to a couple of family members. Mrs. Wheels, Counselor, and Mr. De Santiago, Technology Elective Teacher, have taken other assignments within the district. We thank them both for their years of dedicated service to our students. Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Monica Blumenfield, our new Counselor, and Ms. Angie Quintero, our new Technology Elective Teacher.
Over the summer, our school facility upgrades included: painting the exterior of all buildings, painting some interiors, and carpeting additional classrooms. The installation of a synthetic playing field has also begun. Our custodial personnel have been working diligently to prepare the classrooms and halls for another fantastic school year. Keller teachers and the administrative team have met to review last year’s academic accomplishments, set goals, and plan for the 2016-2017 year.
As parents and guardians, you will have a number of opportunities to support your child’s education throughout the year. It is my hope that you take advantage of those opportunities. Please consider becoming a Volunteer in Public Schools (VIPS) and/or Keller PTA member. The stronger the school-home partnership, the better the educational experience will be for all our students.
Please enjoy the remaining days of summer, as we enthusiastically anticipate another rewarding year of purposeful and meaningful learning experiences for our students. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. As always, GO LOBOS!
