PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Hello Panther Families,

First of all I would like to introduce myself to those who don't yet know me. My name is Mason Marshall, and I am honored to serve as the principal of Eagle Point Middle School. I have been in Education for 24 years, and I am beginning my 21st year with Eagle Point School District 9. This will be my second year as the principal of EPMS.


Our staff is anxious to welcome back our students and families for the 2022-2023 school year! We hope you are enjoying your summer and have been able to spend time with family and friends.


We are so excited to be able to provide in-person instruction again this year. I am so proud of our students, staff, and community for the support that was given last year and the continued focus on the success of our students. I am fully confident we will continue with our amazing partnership to help our students be successful. There may be some changes and challenges along the way, but one thing I am certain of is that we are in this together, and we will accomplish great things!


We will continue to be focused on ensuring:

● every student, every day is finding a way to feel connected,

● every student, every day is being challenged by new learnings and experiences,

● every student every day knows they have a caring adult they can turn to.


We encourage you to regularly check our school webpage, Facebook, student Canvas course and your email to stay informed about event dates and times.


Our EPMS staff and I feel privileged to be a part of our Eagle Point Middle School families and community. We are energized and committed to making this a fantastic school year. We look forward to a successful year with our students and families. Enjoy the remainder of your summer!


Sincerely,

Mason Marshall

Principal of Eagle Point Middle School

iPad insurance is $25 per student. It may be paid through ParentVue or by sending check or cash to school with your scholar. We highly recommend this insurance.
