To the Hooksett Memorial community,
It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the Principal of Hooksett Memorial School. Next year will be my fourteenth year as a proud member of the Hooksett school community. My career in education began in Hooksett as a Physical Education teacher in 2008, and for the past eight years, I have served as the Assistant Principal at David R. Cawley Middle School.
My wife and I have two energetic boys who always keep us on our toes. My oldest son, Cam, will be entering first grade next year and Cullen will be attending preschool. While we live in Pembroke, they have grown up attending Hooksett school activities and events. Whether it’s the PTA Spooktacular or eighth grade musical, they love to admire the accomplishments of the students of Hooksett and join them in the fun.
I am committed to providing your child a positive school environment where they feel safe, supported, and ready to learn. I strongly believe that families are an integral part of a child’s educational team and strong school-to-home connections are imperative for student success. I look forward to working collaboratively with you to ensure that your child gets the most out of their time at Hooksett Memorial School.
I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce Bill Hinkle as the new Assistant Principal of Hooksett Memorial School. Bill joins us with six years of administrative experience and a shared belief that schools should be a unifying force in the community.
I eagerly await the opportunity to meet with families, staff, students and community members to discuss how we can continue to best support your child over the course of the upcoming school year. I will be working throughout the summer to ensure a smooth transition and great start to the 2021-2022 school year. Please stop in to say hello. In addition, I will be sending information out regarding a parent meet and greet to be scheduled in August. This event will provide an opportunity for you, the Hooksett community, to meet with myself and Mr. Hinkle before the school year begins. That information will be sent by email via BrightArrow and our website.
I’m proud to call myself a member of the HMS community and look forward to working together. Have a great start to summer!
