Casimir Middle School is The BEST Middle School on the Planet!

June 28, 2021

Good afternoon Parents & Guardians of the Casimir family,

I hope each of you are thoroughly enjoying your summer!

I wanted to take a moment to share how greatly honored and humbled I am to be continuing on as the principal of Casimir middle school.

Also, I want to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation to the Casimir community for the privilege to continue this exciting journey to support Torrance Unified in my new role as the principal at Casimir Middle School.

I am absolutely thrilled to continue supporting the growth and success of Casimir in every way possible. This past year, I had the opportunity to experience firsthand what a unique and special place Casimir is; I had the privilege to have grown closer to our amazing community of outstanding students, dedicated and caring teachers & staff and incredible parents, which together make-up - The Most Wonderful School Community ever!

I look forward to continuing to work together to further establish Casimir as The Premier Middle School in Torrance!

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions, concerns or ideas you may have.

Warmest Regards,

James Ashikawa
