Principal's Message

Dear Students and Families,

I am honored to be the principal of Quimby Oak Middle School. As I continue on my leadership career here, I reflect on the phenomenal leadership throughout the years at Quimby and know in working together we will continue to thrive and be proud of the Lobo Legacy we leave behind. I am excited to serve the greater Quimby community and support the continued growth of our students during their middle school years. Together we will support the students educational journey and social and emotional success.

Your child can look forward to a middle school experience filled with many academic and social adventures. Please encourage your child to get involved with as many activities as they can to help create a well balanced middle school experience. As a parent, I welcome your collaboration. I encourage our parent community to become involved, share ideas, expertise, and passions. Please join our PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association), and other parent leadership committees, to seek opportunities for you to engage with our school and district. The cornerstone of Quimby Oak is teamwork and the key to our success is clear communication and collaboration between home and school. We are looking forward to working with you!

The 2021-2022 school year continues to bring some new changes as well as a return to some sense of normalcy for our school and students. Quimby will begin this school year in a 100% in person environment. The return to campus is both welcomed and exciting. Though we may continue to face challenges, I know we will work through them together. I look forward to working with the staff to help create the best middle school experience we can while we continue to face the daily unknowns. It is our goal to adapt our lessons, pivot our strategies, and update our systems to create typical middle school experiences while putting students and staff safety and well-being as our top priority. Together we can achieve greatness!

I am proud to serve the Quimby Oak community and look forward to a memorable school year.

Go, Lobos!

All the best,

Ginger Gaeta, Principal
