Principal's Corner

Dear Maxwell Elementary/Middle School Stakeholders, 

Wow! Huge thank you for the warm welcome and encouraging words, the staff and parents have given me, since I assumed the role of principal here at Maxwell Elementary/Middle School (MEMS). MEMS is a wonderful community of learners and future leaders. Our desire as a staff is to provide each student with a 21st Century educational experience and to cater to the whole child. By a 21st Century Education, we mean project-based learning, hands-on learning, flexible grouping based on assessment for learning, cooperative learning, student inquiry-based learning, and varied technology integrated into instruction. With help from our parents and community, we will continue to move toward a focus on active rather than passive learning and a greater emphasis on deep learning and understanding for our students. As we do those things, we will notice an increased responsibility and accountability on the part of the students and a true desire by them to be engaged in the learning process. 

My door is always open except when it is closed. My desires are to foster positive relationships with parents and respond to your concerns. Allow me to earn your respect and confidence. I realize there have been several changes in leadership this school year. However, regardless of the past, we will carry on together to do what is best for our students. We will do "Whatever it Takes"to provide our students with a 21st Century Education.   

Let us soar to new heights, 

Dr. Ronald J. Knight Jr.
Maxwell Elementary/Middle School, Principal
