As the principal of Thomas J. Kellar Middle School, I am delighted to extend my warmest greetings to you and your child as we embark on a new academic year. It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome both new and returning students to our school community.
At Kellar, our goal is to provide a nurturing and stimulating learning environment that fosters academic excellence, character development, and a lifelong love for learning. Our dedicated team of educators is committed to providing your child with a well-rounded education that “prepares our students to be responsible, contributing citizens in a diverse and changing world” (Kellar Mission Statement).
Throughout the year, we will focus on promoting a positive school culture where every student feels valued, respected, and encouraged to achieve their full potential. We believe in the power of collaboration between parents, teachers, and students to create a supportive learning atmosphere. We must all work together to make sure our students are in attendance daily, punctual, dressed in proper uniform, and applying their best effort. As partners in your child's education, we encourage open communication and invite you to participate in school events, our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), and other activities that strengthen our school-home relationship.
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with our school policies and guidelines, which are outlined in the student handbook. If you have any questions or need assistance, do not hesitate to reach out to myself or our dedicated staff.
Together, let's make this academic year a rewarding and transformative journey for your child. Thank you for entrusting us with their education. We look forward to a successful and memorable year ahead!
