To our parents, guardians and stakeholders,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to the 2021-2022 school year! I’m honored to serve as the proud principal of S.V. Marshall Middle School. I am excited about the journey ahead. With your partnership and support we will thrive to be a school our parents are proud to be a part of.
The safety of our scholars, faculty and staff continues to be one of our overarching priorities as we return to a traditional setting this year. We want our families to know that we are implementing the necessary procedures outlined by CDC guidelines as it relates to schools. Implementing these procedures will ensure we slow the spread of COVID19 within our building.
The S. V. Marshall Middle School’s motto is “Every Scholar Matters—Every Moment Counts”. This motto will guide us to the successes that lie ahead. We will engage students in standards driven and technology infused instruction daily. We will always encourage students to do their absolute best at all times. We will keep an open line of communication with all parents and stakeholders. Always keeping a level of transparency with the focus to do better and be the very best.
As the instructional leader of SVMM, I have three goals I am striving to accomplish with your support:
- Increase student achievement. Through quality instruction from the most qualified teachers and support staff. We will provide scholars with ongoing interventions and support. Keeping scholars engaged through exciting and innovative lessons each and every day.
- Ensuring that scholars have an environment that is safe and conducive to learning. This will allow us to receive the best student outcomes possible. There will be a continues focus on building better relationships with our scholars by being concerned and remaining concerned about them throughout this school year and beyond.
- Building a stronger Community/School Culture. We will do this by providing parents with opportunities to be a part of the decision making process. We will allow the community voices to be heard. Partnering with our parents, for a better vision for our students. Parent will have access to the necessary resources and support to build our family and community engagement.
The staff and I know the importance of a solid educational foundation for our scholars. We appreciate our parents and the opportunity to serve the boys and girls of this community. We take on this mission with courage and attentiveness. We will continue to work hard daily so the impact is great for all scholars. We know that the parents are our key to unlocking the hearts and minds of our scholars and we know with their support my staff and I will be able to unlock both.
I am fortunate to lead such an outstanding school community and team, and I look forward to what I know will be a gratifying and triumphant school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns or input at any time.
It’s a great day to be Tiger!
Bridgett Wheaton, Ed.S.
