Principal's Message

Dear Panther Community,
Welcome back to another great school year! I am honored to join this amazing community as Principal of Fred Newhart Middle School. My personal mission is simple: to continually grow and leave better than when you started. You have my dedication to that mission - that students will become better versions of themselves from year to year. 

I look forward to carrying out this work with all stakeholders of the school community in order to propel our students forward in preparation for high school, and opportunities beyond. Together, we must provide a strong and supportive academic environment that goes hand-in-hand with an equal amount of social and emotional support. Our student-centered focus will drive our work so that innovative and collaborative practices support our students during their time here. 

Newhart offers a wide range of innovative programs that focus on student learning, working collaboratively, and producing results that benefit all students. Our Panther teachers and staff are committed to collaborating with you to accomplish these goals.  I hope you will join us so that, together, we prepare all students to achieve high levels of academic success and develop character while instilling the tools necessary for their future in a competitive world (Newhart Mission). 
It is my sincerest pleasure to join the Panther Family!
Michael Kim
