Dear Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  We are glad that you are joining us as we embark on an exciting year of teaching and learning at Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School.  I want to give a special welcome to our incoming sixth graders and their families.  We look forward to seeing you grow, both academically and personally, over the next three years.  I want to also say WELCOME BACK to those of you who are returning.  I hope that your summer was filled with fun and relaxation, and that you were able to make wonderful memories with family and friends.

Community is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate, members of a global society. I look forward to an amazing year!

This year, we will renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, as we seek to continue to provide high quality instruction with the expectation that all students can learn and be successful. Our focus will be to meet students where they are and ensure growth in each one of them, both as a student and as a person.  I personally believe in, and take pride in, always doing what is best for students. I will continue to use this guiding principle when making decisions about our school.  

Please spend time reviewing the 2022-2023 Student Handbook that is located on our website at:  nknsd.org.  In this handbook, you will find useful information that can help us have a successful school year.  

We look forward to working with you and your students again this year. Please contact the office or me if you have any questions in regard to the new school year! Phone or email both work!
