Middle School Principal Update

Dear P2P Middle School Families,


A warm welcome to the 2019-20 school year! We are so excited to greet our returning students and to welcome our new 6th grade students to middle school. Teachers and administrators have been quite busy preparing for the new year this week, and we’re excited to welcome families to a brand new school year that is filled with opportunities to learn, grow, and build strong relationships.


As you may already be aware, we have not yet hired a principal for the middle school. The hiring team has been actively working on this hire over the past several months, but we have not yet found our best-fit person for this important role at our school. Our hiring process is rigorous, and it is also effective. Our standards are high and we don’t make an offer to a person until we are certain they are a good fit for our community. This can mean that we sometimes have to be patient when searching for just the right person to fill an open position. Our staff and students deserve the best, and that’s what we’re working to find. The hiring team will continue to work diligently until a hire is made. 


In the meantime, we have an interim leadership plan in place to ensure that our service to students is seamless and that teachers are supported in their work in the classrooms. We are working in partnership with the rest of our Executive Leadership Team to distribute responsibilities in a way that will make it possible for the middle school to run smoothly. Please contact either of us with any questions you have, and we will work together to ensure that you have the information you need to support your students as they begin the school year.  We are looking forward to seeing all of our middle school students next week!


Warm wishes,


Libbi Peterson, Middle School Assistant Principal
