Douglas Middle School


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the new school year at Douglas Middle School! I am thrilled to begin this academic journey with you and your child as the Principal. As we embark on a fresh year of learning, growth, and discovery, I want to extend my warmest greetings and share my excitement for the opportunities that lie ahead.

Our dedicated team of educators and staff have been working diligently to create a nurturing and inclusive environment that fosters academic excellence and personal development. We believe that every student possesses unique talents and capabilities, and it is our mission to help them unleash their potential.

At Douglas Middle School, we are committed to providing a well-rounded education that goes beyond academics. We encourage our students to explore their interests, develop critical thinking skills, and cultivate values such as respect, empathy, and perseverance. Our goal is to prepare them to be confident, responsible, and compassionate individuals who can positively contribute to the world.

As partners in your child's education, we believe that effective communication between school and home is crucial. We will keep you informed about your child's progress, upcoming events, and important updates throughout the year. We encourage you to actively participate in our school community and engage with teachers and administrators to support your child's educational journey.

We have an exciting lineup of extracurricular activities, clubs, and events planned for the year, giving students ample opportunities to explore their passions and talents inside and outside the classroom. 

I am truly honored to lead this wonderful community of students, parents, and educators. Together, let's make this school year memorable and transformative for our young learners. Your support and involvement will be instrumental in the success of our students, and I am confident that, as a team, we can achieve remarkable things.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to our administrative team. Our doors are always open to you.

Once again, welcome to Douglas Middle School. Let's embark on this exciting journey of learning and growth together!

Warm regards,

Mrs. Crosswait
