Hello, I am Ms. Melissa Brock and I am going to be your new principal at H.Y. Livesay Middle School. I am getting excited and looking forward to seeing each of you at school on August 8th.  I hope that you are having a fun summer  making memories with your family and friends.  I can’t wait to hear all about your summer adventures when you return to school!

As you get closer to the school year starting, think  about all your special talents and skills that you can bring to our school family, and skills that you can grow and learn even more.  Together as a school family, we will work together to ensure that we are trying our hardest everyday to become the best we can be.  YOU are worth it and we BELIEVE in YOU!

My goal as your principal is to make school a great place to be.  I want you to learn and grow, at the same time have fun, I want you to learn to be a person that practices respect, responsibility, hard work, and so much more.  I will be there to encourage you each day to be your very best and to never give up.  We believe as a school family that anything is possible with hard work and a positive attitude.

YOU are amazing and so very special.  I look forward to seeing your smile and high fives as we start a new and wonderful school year.

See you soon, Ms. Brock
