Dear Prospect Charter School Families,
With the 2017-18 school year less than two weeks away, I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself; announce upcoming events and changes in staff; and welcome all our families, new and returning, to Prospect School.
As many of you know, this is my first year as the Principal at Prospect School and I am excited to meet everyone as we get this school year started. To give you a brief introduction of myself, I grew up in John Day and graduated from Grant Union High School. I attended Corban University where I majored in Elementary Education. After 5 years as an elementary teacher I decided to make the move from teaching to administration, and I have spent the last 5 years working as an administrator in both Oregon and Alaska. When I’m not at school I enjoy golfing, hunting, and spending time with my wife.
In addition to myself there have been several other additions and changes to the staff, including our new superintendent, Doug Jantzi.
Jimmy Slaton - High School Football Coach
Kristen Reynolds - Middle School Volleyball Coach
Mandy Maddox - Librarian/Title I Aide
Miranda Hinkle - Part-Time Custodian
Jack Gann - Physical Education/Health Teacher
Alia Jensen - Special Education Assistant
John Bissey - High School Science Teacher
April Leeper - Preschool Teacher
Stephanie Perkins - Administrative Assistant
Kate Lehman - 5th Grade Teacher
Janice Wood - 2nd Grade Teacher
Renee Breiholz - Office Clerk/Cheer Advisor/Assistant High School Volleyball Coach
Megan Shallenberger - High School Volleyball Coach
This year, the 1st day of school is August 28. Other upcoming events include the Booster Club’s Annual Kick-Off BBQ Fundraiser/Student Registration Night on August 18 and Open House on September 14.
I have always loved Southern Oregon and I feel extremely blessed with this opportunity. It is a tremendous privilege to serve your children and this community as we all strive to make a positive, lifelong impact on every student. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or would simply like to get to know me better, please know that my door is always open.
