    Dear South Meadows Staff and Families,

    As you know, Assistant Principal Jose Barraza will become the new principal of Eastwood Elementary School as of July 1, 2021, and we have been seeking his replacement. Today, I am pleased to announce that our current dean of students, Krista Reiman, has been selected for the position.  

    Mrs. Reiman has been a South Meadows staff member since the school opened in 2009. Between 2009 and 2018, she served as a Language Arts teacher, English/Language Arts department coordinator, and instructional coach. From 2015 through 2018, she split her time between South Meadows and the District Office, where she worked as the secondary literacy teacher on special assignment (TOSA). As a TOSA, she collaboratively planned and led professional development for district leadership teams and supported teachers and administrators on a variety of educational topics, including Depth of Knowledge, literacy, dual credit, standards-based lesson design, and more. 

    She has been South Meadows’ dean of students for the past three years. In that role, Mrs. Reiman fosters student success, runs the CARE and attendance teams, collaborates with counselors, assists with administrative duties and supervision, supports student behavior, and is the AVID site coordinator. I have relied on Mrs. Reiman’s leadership, organization, and relationship-building skills, as well as her instructional excellence in her many roles at South Meadows, and am confident she will make an excellent assistant principal. 

    Please join me in congratulating her on her new role.

    Sincerely,

    Justin Welch
    Principal

    Estimados miembros del personal y familias de la Escuela Secundaria South Meadows:

    Como ya sabrán, el subdirector José Barraza será el nuevo director de la Escuela Primaria Eastwood a partir del 1 de julio de 2021, y hemos estado buscando a alguien que pueda ocupar su puesto. El día de hoy, me complace anunciar que nuestra actual decana de estudiantes, Krista Reiman, ha sido seleccionada para asumir ese puesto.  

    La Sra. Reiman ha sido miembro del personal de South Meadows desde que la escuela abrió sus puertas en 2009. Entre 2009 y 2018, se desempeñó como maestra de Artes del Lenguaje, coordinadora del Departamento del Idioma Inglés/Artes del Lenguaje y capacitadora de instrucción. De 2015 a 2018, dividió su tiempo entre South Meadows y la oficina del Distrito, donde trabajó como maestra en asignación especial (TOSA, por sus siglas en inglés) de lectoescritura para las escuelas secundarias y preparatorias. Como TOSA, planificó y dirigió colaborativamente las actividades de desarrollo profesional para los equipos de liderazgo del Distrito y apoyó a los maestros y administradores en una variedad de temas educativos, los cuales incluyen profundidad de conocimiento, lectoescritura, crédito dual, diseño de lecciones basado en estándares y más. 

    Durante los últimos tres años ha sido decana de estudiantes en South Meadows. En ese rol, la Sra. Reiman fomenta el éxito estudiantil, dirige los equipos a cargo de la asistencia y el programa CARE, colabora con los orientadores escolares, apoya con tareas administrativas y de supervisión, apoya con el comportamiento de los estudiantes y es la coordinadora de AVID en el plantel. He confiado en las habilidades de liderazgo, organización y desarrollo de relaciones de la Sra. Reiman, así como en su excelencia educativa en sus muchos roles en South Meadows, y estoy seguro de que será una excelente subdirectora. 

    Por favor, felicitemos a la Sra. Reiman y démosle la bienvenida en su nuevo puesto.

    Atentamente,

    Justin Welch
    Director

Principal's Message

  • Justin WelchDear Community of South Meadows Middle School,

    I am elated to have the opportunity to serve you and your students as principal of South Meadows Middle School.  As the parent of a future SMMS Hawk, I have firsthand knowledge of the great things going on at South Meadows and look forward to adding my own passion and energy to the successful work being done, as well as offering new opportunities to benefit our students and community.  

    Before I moved to Hillsboro in 2014, I began my path as an educator at Linfield College and had my first teaching job in Utah (where I was born and raised).  After teaching for several years, I had the opportunity to serve as the assistant principal in a middle school and I truly love working with students at this age.  In fact, I have experience gaining status as a National School to Watch for maximizing student advisory time as well as enrichment and intervention.  My successful experience as a middle school administrator will give me insight into how to build upon the great things happening at SMMS, such as its robust Dual Language Program, AVID implementation, academic growth, attendance improvement, and student wellness.

    From 2014 to 2019, I had the privilege to lead W. Verne McKinney Elementary School as the principal where we enjoyed immense success!  At McKinney, we have been recognized as a Nationally Distinguished Title I School and have annually received praise as one of the top-achieving Title I schools in all of Oregon.  This success comes from students, families, teachers, and community partners uniting together under a common vision.  As principal, I have leveraged many resources to not only meet the needs of our students, but to help them thrive.  I will continue to build community partnerships and outreach at South Meadows so that our students have many opportunities to reach their highest potential.  

    I look forward to serving you at South Meadows Middle School for many years to come.  In that time, you will see that I model the values I hold dear in educating our children: that I believe in building upon strengths (and South Meadows has many!), that all students can collaborate and learn at high levels, and that engaging the community is crucial to a school's success.  Your involvement as an active member of the school will be critical to ensure that all children attending South Meadows are successful in their middle school years and beyond.  Contact me at any time so we can work together in our goal of making South Meadows the best possible school for your child and all the children of our community.

    Humbly yours,

    Justin Welch
