Principal's Message

Welcome to Kingman Middle School Home of the Bobcats

     It is with excitement and anticipation that our staff moves forward into a new year at KMS.  We have made several changes as we enter 2015-16; however, those changes will only enhance our ability to become a better learning environment for our students.
     Ms. Kathryn Zanin has joined our staff as the Assistant Principal.  Ms. Zanin comes to us from the Tucson area where she was the STEM coordinator in a school district.  She brings a wealth of experience in working with teachers and will help our academic area.  Ms. Joy Lightner will move over from the District Math Achievement leader to handle our Discipline and Athletics. She has very positive experiences in working for KUSD and we feel very lucky to have her full time at KMS.  We have several new teachers and staff members and it is a group that will assist all of our students in the classroom and other events while at KMS.
     Our school is implementing the STEM program to allow our students to connect with the programs available at KHS more smoothly.  The STEM program emphasizes problem solving and project based learning through the four core subjects.  The program also allows for our students to take an Engineering elective during each semester.
     A goal of our school is to increase the number of students that participate in our after-school programs through the 21st Century Grant and athletics. We have a variety of clubs and programs after school to excite our student body and will be adding more as the interest increases.
     Our year got off to a GREAT start during the "Meet the Teacher Night" where we had a very large crowd and then on Saturday August 8th through Ms. Lightner's effort we had over 180 athletes attend the FREE Physical Day for athletics.
     It is a honor to be the Principal of KMS and I take great pride in providing the leadership for our school community as we encourage all stakeholders to become involved at Kingman Middle School. Please take the time to visit a classroom or an event held at KMS during the 2015-16 school year.
