Welcome Back Shorthorns

Dear Shorthorns,

On behalf of the staff at Hamshire Fannett Middle, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! Special thanks to everyone for your staunch support with all of the challenges over the past school years. We look forward to a continued productive partnership between families and staff to ensure our children achieve their highest potential academically, emotionally, and socially. We truly appreciate our parents for their acts of kindness and encouragement throughout the school year.

Each year brings positive changes, and we are excited to receive our new group of sixth graders and return to our middle school campus. We are gearing up with renewed focus and commitment to supporting academic achievement through high-quality rigorous instruction. Our devoted staff has been planning and collaborating all summer to address the individual needs of our students, including their social-emotional wellness. They are committed to ensuring that Hamshire-Fannett Middle remains a celebrated and successful school.

In addition to summer planning, our road to recovery will continue to include daily intervention and enrichment time at the beginning of each school day as well as small group instruction throughout the day. We have also scheduled a club/organization time to include art, chess, leadership, reading, robotics, National Junior Honor Society, and student council.  

We welcome our new and veteran staff members and the knowledge and skills they bring to our students. Our staff eagerly looks forward to greeting students and families again.  It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Together we will make the school year one of growth and achievement for our students!
