Welcome to Banks Middle School!

I am honored to take the helm as Principal this year. I find it a privilege to partner with you through this exciting, challenging and wonderful age. Our goal is to promote a productive learning environment where students are taught the skills they need to be safe, responsible and respectful. Our academics are rigorous, supportive, and promote success and achievement for all. Excellent student achievement, behavior, talent and creativity will be expected, noticed and honored. Our end goal is for students to be prepared for success in High School and beyond so they will be able to pursue their personal, adacemic, and professional dreams. My hope is that every parent or guardian has an opportunity to participate in our school culture through volunteerism or attendance at one of our many events that may occur during or after school.

We are looking forward to the changes for Banks Middle School as plans are implemented for a our new building.  Our Design Team will be working on planning for this construction project during this school year, and construction is currently scheduled to begin in June 2013. We will see significant progress on the new building when students return to school in September 2013.
