Principal Message

Susan Levy

Welcome to Pershing Middle School! As a long time resident of the San Carlos community, it is my honor and pleasure to serve the families at Pershing Middle School. I believe that students make their best progress in a safe and caring environment with academics,social and emotional growth at the forefront of our mission.

Middle School is a challenging time for young people and it is my goal to ensure that we provide the most positive and engaging environment in which students can explore new ideas, cultivate their dreams, and thrive as learners. Some people say that time spent in middle school is something that must be endured. I have to disagree. At Pershing, we know and understand middle school students and we love working with them! They are eager to learn, interested in making the world a better place and and they love new challenges.

At Pershing, students are engaged in learning; they work together collaboratively, write poetry, learn to speak Spanish, play musical instruments, sing and act in plays, build windmills, develop science fair projects, create Yearbooks and student broadcasts,  participate in debates, justify their answers in math, win spelling bees and many other awards, attend 6th grade Camp, travel to the East Coast during spring break, learn new technology skills such as "Coding" and "Scratch", develop positive relationships with teachers and staff members, make new friends and learn more about themselves than ever before.

Teachers, counselors, and administrators at Pershing ensure that students are learning in a caring environment; where it is okay to make mistakes and learn from them, where it is safe to share new ideas, where various cultural traditions are valued, and where all students are challenged to think deeply, reflect on their work, and set lofty goals.

As your Principal, I welcome you to an exciting adventure and encourage all families to participate in our school activities and daily events. This is not the time to stop volunteering! Parent involvement in middle school is more critical and crucial than ever before. As a hands on Principal that truly enjoys working with the students, parents and our wonderful staff members every day, I look forward to working with you and your family. My door is always open to the community and I welcome your ideas and suggestions. I am very confident that, when we work together, your student will achieve at the highest levels, be provided with many opportunities to grow as a citizen, develop positive relationships with adults and students, and have an amazing experience at Pershing Middle School.
