Greetings Nathanael Greene Middle School Parents and Community Members,

Welcome to another exciting school year at Nathanael Greene Middle School! I am looking forward to welcoming our new and returning students, as well as welcoming our new sixth graders, as they become official Nathanael Greene Bucks. I am grateful to be the leader of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic success and that promote social growth.

Although this school year will be one of transition, flexibility and in some ways uncertain. I say this because we will need to adjust to potential changes quickly based on any situations that will bring caution for student and staff safety.  Of course we will try to make this this school year as “normal” as possible for our students as I am aware that they need that support and consistency.

Even though the school year may look and feel different, I am excited to get to know our students and form positive and supportive relationships with them. We have an amazing staff that is guided by the principle of doing what is best for students. We consider ourselves a family, and we are excited to welcome you and your student(s) into The Nathanael Greene family also known as “Buck Nation”.

We are striving to ensure that our families are connected to the school in every aspect possible. We want our families to stay informed of all the wonderful things that are happening here at Nathanael Greene.  We ask that you please visit our new and improved website on a regular basis for current news and upcoming events.  Listed below are ways to stay connected as well.

  • If you have not done so already, please be sure to download the Class Dojo App here .
  • Sign up for Parent Link  here.
  • You can learn about being a volunteer here.
  • You can sign up for Kinvolved here .
  • You can sign up for Let’s Talk  here.

Once school starts you will have an opportunity to sign up for weekly parent newsletters.  My door is always open. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with this fantastic community.
