Welcome Back


July 9, 2018

 Dear Families and Students,

 My name is Mr. Andre Gillespie and I am honored   to have been selected as the new principal of Sacaton Middle School.  I began my educational career nearly twenty years ago as an elementary physical education then moving on to become a middle school Spanish teacher.  During my teaching experience, I earned a Master’s of Science in Administrative Leadership from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  My administrative leadership experience spans over both elementary and middle schools in very large, diverse public school districts across the country.

It is exciting to join the leadership of Sacaton Elementary School District and continue to build positive relationships with families and students. We are committed to the success of each child’s education through our mindset of “Magnify the Possibilities.”  In magnifying the possibilities, we look forward to increased “I can do” attitudes and taking ownership for success.  Through supportive collaborations between school and home, we will position ourselves to achieve a high level of success for all.

Below are several important dates that you will need to mark on your calendar:

  • August 2   Meet the Teacher Night

         4:30-6:30 p.m.

  • August 6   First Day of School for All Students (full day)      

         7:55 a.m.-3:20 p.m.

Again, I am looking forward to working with everyone as we work toward higher academic success for our students.

Warm Regards,

 Mr. Andre Gillespie, M.Ed

Sacaton Middle School Principal
