FALL 2014- Mr. Chris Hanke

Dear Middle School Family and Friends-

I write to welcome the students, parents, family and friends of Garfield Heights Middle School back for the 2014-2015 School Year. In beginning my 4th year as principal, I am excited about the continued progress that our building makes in academics, co-curricular activities and the social aspects of being a middle school student. With the addition of Mr. Chris Sauer as the new assistant principal for our building, there is reason for continued excitement. We also wish Mrs. Urban all the best, as she assumes a more curriculum-based role for the Garfield Heights City Schools.

Looking to the 2014-2015 school year, one of our top goals is the engage our families in order to improve instruction. One major way that we intend to accomplish this goal is to host our first-ever Family Engagement meetings on a quarterly basis. Though you will certainly be receiving more information about these meetings in the near future, I strongly encourage you to attend so that you can play an active role in your son or daughter’s academic journey.  

The 2014-2015 school year looks to be an exciting year, filled with enthusiasm and a commitment to academic improvement. If I can answer questions at any time, please feel free to contact me.
