End of Year Message from Principal Paddock

Greetings, Panther Students, Families and Staff!

This is Principal Paddock with the final BCMS school update for the week of June 14th. Congrats! We made it through a historic year. One filled many significant challenges and rewards. We have grown as a BCMS community and I want thank you for all the support you have given me over the last 5 years.  As many of you already know, this was my last year at Battle Creek MS and in St. Paul Public Schools. I have accepted a position as the new high school principal at St. Louis Park High School. This was a difficult decision. I consider the BCMS community my family. You have helped me grow into the leader I am and made this new opportunity possible. I have learned so much from each and every one of you and I will take these experiences with me. The love and admiration I have for the Battle Creek community is hard to compete with and I hope that I served you with the dignity and integrity you deserve.  I do not believe in goodbyes, so it’s a farewell for now. Remember to stay true to yourself and this phenomenal community!

Take care, be well, and GO PANTHERS!
