Weston Middle Principal
Assistant Principal's Message
Dear Students, Staff, and Parents:
I am thrilled to serve as the Weston Middle School Assistant Principal. At WMS, our students are properly prepared to be 21st Century thinkers using critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication to develop their decision-making and problem solving skills. The middle school’s diverse educational programs and co-curricular activities allow students to explore their interests and have new experiences out of their comfort zone. Using inquiry-based learning and rigorous content, our educators challenge all students to explore real-world problems and engage in meaningful learning.
The teachers and administrative team hold the highest standards for all students at WMS. High expectations for student respect, responsibility, and integrity help create a positive learning environment where all students feel enthusiastic about their school experiences. It is our goal that each child will reach their greatest potential both academically and behaviorally, along with being fully prepared for success in college and in their career.
The collaboration with the staff, students, families, and community members at Weston Middle School creates a culture that promotes the philosophy of life-long learning. It is my belief that this is the type of culture where all members of our school community can thrive.
As a member of your school community, I am excited to support your families in preparing our students at WMS for success. My office door is always open. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.

The school nurse at Weston High School is available to provide emergency care for students in case of accidents or sudden illnesses. The school nurse is also available to counsel students, their parents, and faculty on health matters. Before admission to Weston Schools, all new entrants are required by State law to show proof of immunization against Polio (IPV – 3 doses), diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT – 4 doses), Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), proof of immunity to varicella (chickenpox), Hepatitis B vaccine (3 doses), a tuberculosis skin test, and a physical examination by a licensed physician. Complete physical examinations are required for all new students and incoming ninth graders. The school nurse should be kept updated on any changes of a student’s medical condition or medication that are pertinent to a student’s full and safe participation in school. If medication is to be given in school an authorization form for the administration of medication is needed and must be signed by the physician and parent/guardian. Students who are exempt from having a physical examination because of their medical/religious beliefs must present this documented information to the school heath office.
