Principal's Message

Welcome to the school year! Thank you for visiting the Lee County Middle School East Campus webpage. I appreciate your taking time to learn more about our school, our students, and our faculty. The teachers and staff members at our school fully embrace the middle school concept and strive to provide a nurturing and fulfilling learning environment for students. We try to accomplish this desire by forming small learning communities for our students through offering teaming opportunities. I hope that you enjoy learning about our school, our teams, our teachers, and all of the educational opportunities here at LCMS East Campus!

I am honored to be the Principal of Lee County Middle School East Campus and to serve our students, parents, and community in this capacity. The opportunity to begin yet another school year as the instructional leader of such a highly reputable school is truly a blessing. The administrative team anticipates working collaboratively with all staff members, students, parents, and community and business partners throughout this year. Let’s all work together and continue to provide challenging and relevant learning experiences for our students!
