    I am very displeased with this middle school under the direction of Dr. Ziegler. I believe that he is not doing his part in addressing bullying issues. I would like to see his resignation.

    The principal vice-principal & teachers care about your child but that doesn't always mean they know what they are doing. Make sure you are involved & keep informed.
