Dear Eagle Families:
Welcome back to a new semester. I hope everyone enjoyed the winter break from school and spent quality time with your families. I was able to travel locally with my family spending time in our nation’s oldest city St. Augustine, Florida. It was cold, but beautiful!
The mission of Greenwood Lakes Middle School is to ensure that all students acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be productive citizens. As we get back to our daily routines, we will continue this mission in our professional learning communities. By working collaboratively, focusing on learning of each student to obtain better results through our continued efforts to improve our teaching techniques and increase student academic learning time, we will provide success for all students.
Please help me congratulate Mrs. Sheryl Bazley Greenwood Lakes Middle School 2018 Teacher of the Year and Mr. Ricky Williams Greenwood Lakes Middle School 2018 Employee of the Year. I commend all of our teachers and staff for their dedication to providing the highest quality of education to our students. Your efforts are appreciated more than you know.
