Dear Students and Parents:
Welcome to Kirtland Middle School and a new school year! I am honored to serve as your principal for this school year and I am grateful to continue to promote, foster and support the incredible efforts of our students, staff and community. I will dedicate my efforts to making KMS a positive, safe, engaging experience for all students that walk the halls of our building. I also recognize the values of the community and the district striving for continuous improvement for the educational experience for all children.
The middle experience is one of transition, maturation, self-discovery and more freedom. Our mission is to encourage your child to be lifelong learners with a sense of purpose. We will provide a challenging environment to build and further the educational foundation so all students will have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Partnerships between KMS and families are vital to the success of each child. This partnership requires consistent collaboration to maximize educational growth. Together, we can accomplish great things.
The Staff and I also encourage you, the student, to use the planner for organizing your daily assignments and managing your time. Rules, guidelines, and procedures are necessary for maintaining a safe climate that maximizes student achievement in our numerous school activities and programs. Let’s have a great year!
Mr. Scott Amstutz
