Elgin Middle School
Dear Comet Community,
It is with heartfelt words that I write this letter to inform you that as of July 31, 2019. I will be leaving the position of principal of Elgin Middle School and beginning in a new position as principal at another district. Although I will miss my work with our school family, I look forward to the challenges this new position has to offer.
It has been a pleasure to serve the Elgin District since 2003. I hope you know how much I have enjoyed these last 16 years. It has been my good fortune to experience a wonderful partnership with the students, staff and families in our community. Derrick Purtee, currently the assistant principal, will become the principal at Elgin Middle School. He is looking forward to working with all of you and getting to know each of you.
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve you, your children and this outstanding school community and hope you know I am especially proud of our students. I look forward to hearing great things about their accomplishments as they continue their education at Elgin and beyond.
