Principal’s Welcome

Thank you for welcoming me into the Ames Community School District.  I am honored to be a part of the Sawyer team and am excited about the opportunity we have to rise to the challenges before us.  This year is going to be different than any other year and the staff at Sawyer is committed to providing a safe and secure environment and helping all students to feel competent, capable, loved, and a sense of belonging.  We will work diligently alongside you to provide an educational experience that meets the needs of your children and family whether they’re learning online or at school. 

We look forward to working with you and celebrating our successes along the way!
