Welcome to Hiawatha Jr/Sr High School

Hello Hawk Family!

Welcome to the 23-24 school year!  It is with a grateful heart that I write this letter of introduction as your new JH/HS Principal for Hiawatha School District.  I am truly honored to be back in the Hawk community.  

As we welcome seasoned students and staff, as well as new ones, to the 2023-2024 school year, our focus is the same; to create a safe, respectful and fun environment where lifelong learning takes root and thrives.  

The team here has already established a strong sense of direction, accountability, and academic excellence.  I am excited to be working alongside you in creating a space where education and wellness can flourish.  

We appreciate your support through the course of the year, and look forward to working with your children.
