Dear Fred Lynn Middle School Community!
I am Jorge Neves, the proud Principal of Fred M. Lynn Middle School. I look forward to the significant achievements that our school community will realize.
In today’s global economy, it is vital to prepare our students for successful high-school and college careers. This is important if we are to accomplish our mission of “Educating the Whole Child for a Global World”. The best way to accomplish our mission is for all of us to collaborate as one team, work towards one goal – provide our students a World Class Education.
As a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP), our school provides a framework of academic challenges that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world and become critical and reflective thinkers.
As a school community, our school meets the diverse academic, athletic, and creative needs of all students, while inspiring them to achieve to their fullest potential and develop their capacity to become inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring students. We plan to engage students, educators, parents, and the community in a learning environment of collaboration and educational action. We embrace the cultural diversity and international mindedness of our student body, as we all have high stakes as global partners in our technology-driven society.
Mr. Jorge Neves, M. Ed. Leadership,
Hello fellow Hornets!
I am Sherra Thomas, your Assistant Principal. I am thrilled and honored to have the privilege of being a Hornet. I have been in the educational field for 12 years; I have an undergraduate degree in Middle School Math (grades 6-9) and a master’s degree in Administration K-12. Of my 12 years, I served six years in the Piedmont Triad area in North Carolina and six years in Prince William County at Beville MS. During these years I coached middle and high school volleyball, as well as middle school softball. I have served on and been vocal in many areas: leadership team, Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports committee, mentoring program, character education programs, after-school math programs, and Edge Club. Some of you may recognize me from Veterans Memorial Park where I was Head Camp Counselor for five summers.
I am proud to say I have received two high honors during my teaching career: Teacher of the Year at Eastern Guilford Middle School in North Carolina and Dale City Teacher of the Year in Virginia.
Congratulations to all students, staff, and families of Fred M. Lynn MS for making such strides this past school year. I am committed to and I look forward to having an even more successful 2014-2015 year. I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child; so, TOGETHER we can achieve greatness.
“Education is more than a luxury; it is a responsibility that society owes to itself.”
