Principal's Message

Mr. Brian Granger, Principal

Embedded Image for:  (horsepuppet_recursive_grande.gif) Greetings,

I hope this message is finding you relaxed and gearing up for the 2017-18 school year.  My

name is Brian Granger and I am the new principal of Allen Middle School.  It is an honor to

have the opportunity to serve the families of the West Shore School District in this capacity.

The upcoming school year will be my twenty-third year in education and though I have spent seventeen years at the middle level, during my career I have served in four school districts, six buildings and across all grade levels K-12.  Through all of those experiences, I have learned that success can only be achieved by always putting“Kids” first and believing “Together” anything is possible.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my first three years in the West Shore School District and have been impressed by the level of professionalism of the staff and dedication of the entire school community to doing what’s best for kids. I look forward to partnering with you as we work to provide a great middle school experience for your children.

Joining me in this endeavor will be Ms. Lyndsey Mulholland, our newly appointed assistant principal.  Ms. Mulholland is coming to us with a range of experiences from teaching at the elementary level in Shippensburg, PA and Boston, Mass. to teaching 5th and 7th grade language arts in New York State charter schools.  Her unique experiences from different grade levels and state school systems, both public and private, will help us as we work to make Allen Middle School a great place to learn and grow.  Check out our welcome message at the following link:
