Principal's Message


I hope you all are having a great summer and are doing well competing at the Fair or enjoying the festivities. Looks like it is going to be a great weekend out there. I’m back in the office and excited to kick off a new era for Pirate Nation! I know there have been a lot of changes, challenges, frustrations, and hurt in the last 4 years. My goal is to rebuild trust, programs/systems, and faith in the school while reconnecting us with the community. I understand that is a slow process and will take time, but I intend to be here for the long haul and am ready to serve this district.

I want to thank parents, staff, students, admin, and our school board for welcoming me and allowing me to serve at Dayton Jr/Sr High. I look forward to getting to know the students, staff, and community this year, as well as the needs and shared vision for our school. I have high expectations for students around behavior, attendance, and grades and with that we have amazing staff to help foster a learning environment where our students can thrive, building toward the goal of becoming college and career ready. Together, I hope to provide students with the opportunity to make positive connections in the community while they develop fond memories of their school days. Ultimately, we want our students to want to be here- to come to school every day ready to learn and to take pride in the gains they are making, and I want the community to feel proud to be part of Pirate Nation!

Enjoy the rest of summer and thanks for all you do for our students.
