A Message from Mrs. Kayzar, New Principal of John Long Middle School

Dear John Long Middle School Families,

I hope this letter finds you winding down the school year and thinking about summer.  My name is Liz Kayzar and I am the new Principal at John Long Middle School.  I am excited and thrilled at the opportunity to be a part of this community. 

My most recent administrative experience has been as an Assistant Principal at Wauwatosa East High School.  Prior to my experience as an Assistant Principal, I was a middle school teacher at Swallow School in Hartland.  I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to Grafton and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to email or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make 2014-2015 the best year yet! 

My official start date is July 1st.
