Principal's Message

Ann Allen, Principal

Holiday Greetings!

Holiday break is a wonderful time to reflect on those people in our lives who we are grateful for.

Parents, we are grateful for your beautiful children and your continued support of our school and its programs.

Students, we are proud of your academic achievement and the kindnesses you extend towards one another.

Teachers, thank you for all of your hard work in providing an outstanding environment both inside and outside of the classroom, and for all that you do to add to our connected school community.

Personally, I feel grateful every day as I walk through the quad, through classrooms and all over the campus. Working with parents, students and staff is a joy, and not one that I take for granted. Even after 33 years at McAuliffe I still feel challenged, excited and eager to come to work each day. I believe that has much to do with the warm and generous people that I get to interact with. Thank you to parents, students and staff for making McAuliffe Middle School a great place to be every day!

I wish all of you a peaceful, happy Holiday Season, and look forward to seeing you in the New Year!

Annie Allen, Principal
