Principal's Message

Principal Principal's Message

It is truly an honor to say that I am the Principal of Elmore Park Middle School. Having just finished my first year at EPMS, I am looking forward to the future gains we will make as a school and community under the leadership of Bartlett City Schools.  My wife is also an educator and many parents may know her from Altruria Elementary. As we embark on what has been called a historic school year, I hope to continue to provide the Bartlett community with the best possible educational experience.

Over the next year, I envision increased communication and stakeholder engagement. It takes a village to raise a child. The students of Elmore Park deserve everyone's best and we need to have a solid game plan in order to make this happen. I encouraged all families to be active in our PTSA, athletics, clubs, and the arts programs. I am always available via email: erandall@bartlettschools.org or you can leave a message at the front desk. Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter: @EPMS_Eagles. I will "tweet" regularly to share good things happening around the school and to communicate other necessary information.

The end result of all that we do is student achievement. I maintain high standards of learning for myself and project these expectations onto the faculty and students. The faculty and staff take pride in their work and have a passion to see students soar like eagles in their future. Challenges will surely come our way, but when we confront them with courage, we will overcome.

We Believe! We Succeed! We Achieve! We Soar! We are the Eagles!

Ethan Randall, Principal.
