    Hedrick Principal Lori Higgins

    My name is Lori Higgins.  It is my privilege to serve as the Principal of Hedrick Middle School.  I have been in education since 1997 as a teacher, coach, athletic director, vice-principal, and principal at the K-8th level.  I am excited for the school year and the opportunities awaiting us. We would like to welcome you to an amazing year of learning and growth.

    It is an honor for me to work alongside the amazing staff of Hedrick~ where our vision of ALL are Learning and Learning is for ALL~ comes to life.  As educators, we are extremely appreciative of the families in our community who show consistent support of this important work.  We are confident in creating partnerships within our community that will ultimately lead to higher levels of student success and the continued development of ALL our children.

    We hold high standards; academically, behaviorally, and socially. We ARE focused on the growth of EACH child.  Our goals are to improve academic proficiency, to increase student accountability, to have students show curiosity, and ask questions.  Hedrick follows a model focused on three simple expectations~ Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful- to ourselves and others; by treating others the way we would want to be treated.

    It is my goal to encourage open communication, to challenge each to grow, and as a team help build student success.  We are “Preparing Our Students Today, for Tomorrow”.  We are in this together!  Building success and positive school experiences takes a community. Parent involvement in school endeavors is vital for student success. Parents are a key piece in the puzzle in regards to a child’s education.  We believe in the partnership between home and school.

    We are glad you are a part of our Hedrick community with us this year, and we want to assure you that we will do our very best to help your child experience academic, social and emotional growth. With your help and cooperation, this will be an excellent school year.

    The staff at Hedrick are looking forward to a fabulous, fun-filled year of learning and growing together! Thank you for sending your child to our school each day!
