To the William Floyd Middle School (WFMS) family:
Sixteen years ago, WFMS was born of a collaborative vision focused on creating a school, which would foster academic, physical and social-emotional excellence for William Floyd students. This vision guided its inception and development over the years and not only did it quickly become a good school, it became a great school, one which was highly honored and praised and which held true to its mission. I have had the honor of being the leader of WFMS from its opening in 2003 until today. I have decided to retire after a long and outstanding educational career. I thank all of you for your efforts over the years and your diligence in ensuring that every student has what they need to succeed in life. I am, however, assured by the fact that you will persist in continuing our work, advocating for students and remaining forever committed to their success. Thanks for the memories!
