    I am so honored to serve as the Proud Principal of Bair Middle School for the 2018-2019 school year. Bair received a “B” letter grade during the 2017-2018 school year. This is a tremendous accomplishment for students, teachers, parents, and community.  It was a collective effort by all stakeholders to improve a letter grade.  As we transition to the new year, our theme is REACH HIGHER: Stay focused, Stay Committed, Stay Positive.  This is a true representation of our school and focus for the year.

    I am so excited about the continuation of student success, building systemic partnerships and becoming a true staple in the Sunrise community. As we continue to celebrate the accomplishments this year, our focus will be developing students’ who are socially conscious, have a global perspective and academically successful. Teaching and learning are at the cornerstone of everything we do. 

    This will be the first year that our Montessori Magnet program will have students in all three grades.  The program continues to thrive an embrace the Montessori philosophy of teaching and learning. We are expanding our elective choices this year with offerings in Digital Tools and Peer Counseling.  In addition,  Journalism, Debate, Physical Education, Art, STEM, Cape Academy, Spanish and Band are electives as well.   Bair offers high school credits for Geometry, Algebra, Spanish, Debate, and Digital Information Technology. As you can see, it is all about the B.A.I.R. (Bound for College and Career, Analytical thinker, Intelligent, Responsible person). After three years, high school will receive a well-rounded student from Bair.

    I know Bair will REACH HIGHERthis year with the support of teachers, students, parents and the community working  together toward a common goal, which is student success.  

    Have a great year !!!!
