Dear Parents and Patrons,
Welcome to Saeger Middle School - home of the Spartans. I am Dr. Kandy Worley, the new interim Principal at Saeger. I am beginning my twenty-first year in the Francis Howell School District and have been a teacher at Howell Central, an Assistant Principal at Howell High and a building Principal at Howell Union. I am very excited to have been offered the opportunity to lead such a fabulous school.
Our mission at Saeger is “All for Learning and Learning for ALL”. All of our teachers at Saeger use the Professional Learning Community (PLC) model, as well as School-Wide Positive Behavior Supports (PBS), to assist our students in being the best learners they can be. Both these models keep learning at the heart of our philosophy. The effective use of data-driven decision making, using pyramids of interventions to support our students, and our caring and dedicated staff all assist in Saeger achieving high results.
We have much to celebrate at Saeger. For 2014-2015, Saeger received the Dr. Mary Richter statewide award for Positive Behavior Supports (PBS). This is a huge honor in that only one PBS school in the state is recognized for efforts to exemplify the ideas, principles, and practices of positive behavioral supports. Saeger had the highest attendance of all other middle and high schools in FHSD at 96.28%. We also decreased both our in-school and out of school suspensions by 33%.
Our website is here to assist you in learning more about our programs we have available to our students. I hope to see you at Schedule Pickup on Friday, July 31st, from 12:00-6:00 p.m. and at our Open House on August 18th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. We will be having an Ice Cream Social that evening at 5:00 p.m., so you can meet me and know I am here to assist you in any way I can to make this learning experience the best it can be for your child.
If ever you need to contact me, please call 636-851-5459.
Dr. Kandy Worley,
Saeger Middle School
