That's at the core of equity: understanding who your kids are and how to meet their needs. You are still focused on outcomes, but the path to get there may not be the same for each one.Brentnee Squalls | Principal
It brings me immense joy and honor to introduce myself, Aaron Petersas the new Assistant Principal of Midland Elementary School for the 2023-2024 academic year. I am very excited to be on the Midland team to support your child’s pursuit of academic excellence! As we step into a new school year filled with hope, excitement, and anticipation, I wanted to take a moment to connect with you all, sharing my enthusiasm for the journey ahead.
To those returning, welcome back to what promises to be a year filled with rich learning experiences, growth, and community building. To our new families, we are thrilled to have you join the Midland family, and I am eager to get to know you and your children as we embark on this educational journey together.
A bit about myself: I have dedicated myself to fostering academic and personal growth in students in a few districts in the Orange County and Inland Empire region. I have served as an Elementary Teacher, Secondary Social Science Teacher, and Instructional Coach. My core belief is that every student is a reservoir of potential, and it's our collective responsibility—educators and parents alike—to help them recognize and achieve this unlimited potential. I am committed to ensuring that every student feels valued, understood, and empowered.
As we navigate this year together, our team is dedicated to delivering an enriching curriculum, fostering positive relationships, and providing unique opportunities for every student to shine. Our commitment remains strong in ensuring a safe, inclusive, and dynamic learning environment for all. As part of our commitment to academic excellence it is really important that your child arrives at school on time everyday (before 7:45 am) ready to learn.
Upcoming events, parent-teacher conferences, and various school activities will be a great way for us to connect, so please keep an eye out for announcements on our website, ParentSquare, and whatever communication your child’s teacher uses. Together, we can create memorable moments, celebrate achievements, and build a resilient community for our students.
I anticipate a year of academic discoveries, blooming friendships, and community unity. I am confident that with our combined efforts, dedication, and passion, our students will reach new heights and have a truly remarkable school year.
Thank you for entrusting us with the precious task of educating and nurturing your children. Here's to a successful and joy-filled 2023-2024 school year! Go Thunderbirds!
