A Message from the Principal
Hello SVMS Families,
My name is Jim Deegan. If you have not already heard, I have been assigned to the SV Middle School as Interim Principal starting December 3, 2018, until a time yet to be determined. Many of you already know me as I had been the Supervisor of Assessment and Instruction here at Saucon Valley from 2007-2016 and the Associate Principal at SV Elementary School for the past 3 years.
I will have the pleasure of working alongside Ms. Braxmeier and the SVMS teachers and staff to continue providing an outstanding educational experience for your child. I look forward to "reuniting" with the children in grades 5 thru 7 and making myself familiar to all students in grade 8. Furthermore, I will continue to make myself available to parents and guardians, and I look forward to meeting you at school functions.
My main focus, during my time at SVMS, is to support the initiatives the building administration, teachers and staff have successfully implemented. Also, I will be working with Ms. Braxmeier and the teachers and staff to evaluate our instructional and assessment practices, so we can continue to provide an equitable education for all children.
I believe communication is the foundation for a strong partnership between the school and home. With that said, I will work to sustain and implement various forms of communication to keep us connected as we work toward the goal of your child's academic success and social growth.
SVMS Interim Principal
