Associate Principal John Atkinson
I am very proud to be MacDonald Middle School's Associate Principal! MacDonald is a great community!
My Role at MacDonald Middle School
My number one task in my role as Associate Principal is to promote a safe and supportive community. I believe that a safe community is the key to an education. When students feel like they belong to a community that is safe and supportive, it is only then that their educational needs can be met.
Bullying in school continues to be an area of great concern. Some of you may have seen in the news that "cyber-bullying" is a growing phenomenon; children using Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc., to ridicule, harass, threaten, and embarrass others. When children are bullied, it creates an unsafe environment where meeting educational needs becomes almost impossible. It is our desire at MacDonald Middle School to be a safe school where all are free to learn and grow. Parents, students, family members, and the community are encouraged to report bullying by using the link below.
