Dear Students and Families:
Welcome to the 2016 – 2017 school year! Our commitment at South Scranton Intermediate School is to provide a safe, positive, intellectual learning environment that will empower students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and inspired learners prepared for high school, college, and life in the twenty-first century.
I am very excited to enter my first year as the Principal of South Scranton. In my first year I will learn and work with the community in developing our “SPARTAN PRIDE”. Helping us on our path will be Simon “Jake” Williams. Mr. Williams will be severing as our Vice Principal. Middle school is a time of a change. It is an exciting time, but it can also be challenging with the increase in workloads and the social adjustment to being in a larger school and having multiple teachers through the course of the day. SPARTANS, I encourage you to do the following so you can be successful in your transition and time in middle school:
Parents please make time to:
We are looking forward to a positive, upbeat school year at South. Remind yourself that you do not have to follow the crowd. Be yourself and even when no one is watching, do the right thing. Parents, please help us by reinforcing school expectations at home. With your help, South will continue to be a school community in which every person feels respected, valued, and is encouraged and challenged to achieve at the highest levels.
I encourage you all to be active in our PTA. Our partnership is essential for our continued success. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open.
I am excited for the opportunity to work with you and your student to provide a productive and safe learning environment that supports student success. Once again, welcome to South Scranton Intermediate School! I am honored to serve as your principal!
