My Message to You - Krista Hays, Principal

Krista HaysThe Vision statement of Poe Middle School is announced daily and displayed in every teacher’s classroom:

Our Vision is to improve the lives of students through a quality education.  We are driven by an unrelenting determination to graduate all of our students and prepare them for success in higher education.  Our ideology is reflected in our fundamental beliefs, communities and core values that guide us in our daily practices.

Thank you for taking time to visit our school website!  It is my great pleasure to greet you as the new principal of Poe Middle School.  The three years of middle school are a special and exciting time.  Incoming 6th graders must not only become familiar with a new school, but a new schedule, the change from working with a few teachers to many teachers.   It is a time of excitement and anxiety all wrapped up together.  7th graders also face change, being suddenly thrust into the role of older mentor after only one year of being the underclassman. During middle school, students become more aware of whom they are and begin to identify specific values and interests that will be important to them for a lifetime.  It is the task of the middle school staff to challenge all students to achieve, and to provide opportunities to grow in a positive direction both academically and through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities like clubs, leadership, athletics or fine arts.  
The entire staff at Poe Middle School takes this task very seriously.  We strive to form academically and personally sound individuals who will be ready for High School because they work hard, get involved and do the right thing.  We want our students to know that life is all about choices and that education is power!  And we want to help them grow to become positive, contributing members of the San Antonio community who know to treat one another with kindness and who understand that the diversity of talents, strengths and backgrounds that we bring collectively make our school and community strong.

Please take advantage of the information on our webpage.  I encourage you to contact us whenever you feel you need to do so.  We are committed to providing you and your child with a positive and memorable middle school experience and wish your child a successful school year.

Very Sincerely and Respectfully,
Krista L. Hays
Principal Poe Middle School
