Dear School #1 Family, 

I am delighted to introduce myself as Acting Principal of School #1. I have been a part of the Linden Public Schools for 23 years, as both a teacher and an administrator, and I am eager to begin this new endeavor in leading your school community. As a proud father of two teenagers, I am guided by treating your children, as I would want my own children to be regarded in their school buildings. 

As we embark on this school year, we should be mindful that this is a new beginning for all of us. Each new school year is an opportunity for growth and improvement, in the area of academics as well as social-emotional health. The unique challenges of today’s world are relevant and necessary to address; however, they will not deter us in our mission to educate our students and enrich their educational experiences with innovative technology and best teaching and learning practices. 

Back to School Night is Monday, September 27th.  
Hope to see you there!

Sincerely,

Michael Walters
Acting Principal
