Welcome to the new West Branch Intermediate School. My name is Mr. Schlueter and I am your child’s principal. I look forward to starting this school year and welcoming your child to school. In our building we have the West Branch Preschool, West Branch Intermediate School (grades 3 & 4), and the West Branch Middle School (grades 5-7). The 8th grade has moved to the high school along with the traditional grades of 9 -12.
The biggest issue on everyone’s mind is the pandemic and how will our schools limit the spread of the virus. I address some of the specific protocols later in this newsletter. However, I want to assure you that the safety and security of the students and staff of the West Branch Intermediate and Preschool are my utmost concern.
In spite of the pandemic, our goal is to continue to provide a top-notch education for all of our students. Fortunately, we have amazing teachers who are not only very skilled but also care for their students as if they were their own (they would say that these students ARE their own!). Also, our support staff - secretaries, custodians, cafeteria workers, and bus drivers - are second to none. I am very thankful for the hard work they are putting in to prepare the school for their students.
I look forward to meeting you and serving you and your children as their principal, and helping them to become the best version of themselves! I encourage you to call me anytime to discuss the exciting learning that is taking place at West Branch Intermediate School. I may be reached at (330) 938-4300 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Efforts Today, Rewards Tomorrow!
