FALL 2014- Mr. Chris
Dear Middle School
Family and Friends-
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.
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.
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.
