Message from Principal

Panther Families,

I am honored to be the Principal at Lecanto Middle School and I am very excited for this school year.  We have been working all summer to plan for continued excellence at Lecanto Middle.  Along with our Assistant Principals, Mr. Kyle Jaecks and Mr. Tony Stukes, I am committed to continue striving to make sure that our school’s vision is realized every day, “Excellence for Everyone, Everyday”.  Our school is a “B” this year and our students and teachers continued to make many impressive gains on the state testing last spring.  We have outstanding students, families, and staff, and know that together we will continue to experience the academic excellence for which Lecanto Middle is known. 

We will continue to work this year to increase our family involvement through the offering of informative family nights.  In August we will host a Student Success Night and in October we will have our Day in the Life of a 6th Grader Family Night as well as Parent Conference Day.  We are planning additional activities throughout the school year that are both informative and fun.  I do a call out each Sunday afternoon with important reminders for the upcoming week, so please make sure that your phone number and e-mail addresses are correct in Skyward so that you receive those important parent/family communications.

One of the truly exceptional things about our school is how our students continue to grow as leaders in our school and in our community.  We have an amazing group of leaders in AVID, NJHS, Chorus, Band, FFA, Athletics, Student Government, serving as Peers, and in many other areas and we will continue to highlight their accomplishments on our school’s website and social media pages.

If you have not done so already, please “Like” our school’s Facebook page and follow our Twitter page  We update these pages frequently with events happening on campus and important reminders.

If you every have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Mr. Jaecks, Mr. Stukes, or myself.  We are here to partner with you to make this a wonderful year for all our Panthers.
