Principal's Message

Dear Lion Families,

I am grateful for the opportunity to lead New Kent Middle School in my third year as principal. We had a highly successful school year last year as we “Reached for the S.T.A.R.S.” by focusing on Solving problems, Thinking critically, Asking questions, Researching, and Sharing. Our amazing teachers and staff are enthusiastic about the upcoming school year, and we look forward to continuing our path to excellence. We are proud to announce that the theme for school year 2023-2024 is:

“Plant the Seed, Watch us Succeed”

The selected gardening theme is exciting as we prioritize growth, focus on making learning intentional in the classroom, and demonstrate a relentless pursuit of success for all students. As a staff, we are lifelong learners who are constantly growing together to be highly effective educators. We believe in taking a collaborative approach to planning and delivering high quality instruction for all students to create a garden of success. We are committed to working with students to help foster a passion for learning and to prepare them for their future endeavors. 

We also understand the importance of building strong partnerships with our roots, which are the remarkable families and community members of New Kent County. I value your feedback, and believe we are stronger as a school and as a community when we work together as a team.

Thank you for your support, and we are looking for an incredible school year. 

Go Lions!

Mr. Frank Wheeler
