Mr. John Barnes

Dear Greene students, staff and community members,

I am proud and grateful to have been offered the opportunity to be the Assistant Principal at Nathanael Greene Middle School.  I am looking forward to working closely with Dr. Sermons as he leads the school forward during this time of change.  My role this school year will be to build relationships with all stakeholders and to help support the work around academics, social emotional learning, and extracurricular activities.  It is my philosophy that at the center of student achievement are the efforts of parents, teachers, and students.  My intention is to make sure that I can foster each of these as I support the mission and vision of the school.  I have had an opportunity to meet a few teachers and community members who astounded me with their passion and dedication to the work being done here and I am eager to get to know each and every one of you.

I encourage you to reach out if you have any questions via email at I look forward to getting this year off to a great start!

Por favor, si ustedes tienen preguntas ponerse en contacto a través de mi correo electrónico  Tengo ganas de conocer y trabajar con todos para asegurar que comenzamos este año en la mejor manera posible.

Go Bucks! 

John Barnes, Assistant Principal
