School starts on Aug. 26 and when it does, sixth grade Jordan Ranch students will be attending a brand-new middle school.
The district is unusual in offering sixth-grade only campuses. These schools focus on the needs of pre-adolescents, providing a smoother transition to junior high school. This means young Chargers will have the entire campus to themselves.
The school will be led by Janice Harvey, an experienced educator who is a graduate of Texas A&M University. She has a master’s degree in education from the University of Houston-Victoria.
Most recently, Harvey was the principal of Huggins Elementary. She also has served as an assistant principal at Bowie Elementary, an assistant principal and math teacher at Briscoe Junior High, a fifth-grade teacher at Frost Elementary and an elementary teacher in Fort Bend ISD.
Teachers are already introducing themselves on the Roberts Middle School Facebook page. They are looking forward to wearing the purple and black as much as their students are.
The opening of Roberts Middle School means that Jordan Ranch students continue to attend some of the newest, most state-of-the-art schools in the district.
We wish all of our students a happy and successful school year. Go Chargers!
