Jacobsen Middle School held its promotion ceremony on Tuesday, June 2. After serving as principal for Cummings Valley Elementary for the last 2 1/2 years, Paul Kaminski returned to JMS to serve as principal for the 2013-2014 school year. Prior to that he was the vice principal at JMS for 3 1/2 years.
"My primary goal is the safety of your students while here at school. I try to be as visible as I can be in the classrooms and out at recesses," said Kaminski. "All of us at JMS care about each student and strive to make their middle school experience positive and fulfilling."
Jacobsen takes pride in its staff and student body and provides a strong academic program. The school's teachers play a significant role in helping to develop a student's potential for excellence by providing a curriculum that promotes responsible, capable people through the development of social and academic life skills.
