Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,


Welcome back to Armstrong! We hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. As summer draws to a close, it's our pleasure to extend a warm and hearty welcome to all our students, both new and returning. We are excited to embark on another year of learning, growth, and discovery together.

I am honored and delighted to introduce myself as the new principal of Armstrong High School.  Having previously served as Assistant Principal  at Armstrong High School, I am committed to building upon the strong foundation that Armstrong has already established.

I firmly believe in the power of education to transform lives and empower individuals to reach their fullest potential. I am committed to working collaboratively with our exceptional faculty, staff, parents, and students to ensure that Armstrong High School continues to be a place where every learner thrives.

As we embark on this journey together, my primary focus will be on providing a safe and inspiring learning environment that caters to the individual student. We wish to create a Community of Outstanding Learners. C.O.O.L. We are C.O.O.L at Armstrong!

I would like to extend an invitation to all of you to join me for a Back to School Night  on  Friday, September 8th from 5:00-7pm. This will be a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know each other better, share our thoughts, and discuss the exciting possibilities that lie ahead. Here's to a year of inspiration, discovery and success. Let's make it a great one together.
