Dear Boulter Families,
I am pleased to welcome you back to the 2019-20 school year! I would like to extend a special
welcome to all of the new families joining Boulter Middle School this year and welcome back all of
our returning families as well! I am honored to be your principal. Our goal at Boulter is to work
together to provide our students with a rich learning environment. My vision, as the principal, is
to always put kids first! My belief is that all students can learn. As educators we need to
discover how each child learns in order to differentiate our instruction to support diverse
learning styles. In a collaborative effort, we want children to thrive in all ways possible. My
hope is that all children will LOVE school and nurture a learning environment that is positive,
safe, caring, as well as a fun place to learn and grow.
Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our
community. It truly does take a village! Education is a joint venture and Team Boulter greatly
appreciates the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their
learning goals. Without the support of parent/guardian contributions through our extraordinary
PTA, we would not have many of the programs that make Boulter unique and successful.
Are you new to Boulter? I encourage you to take a look at our website, like our Facebook page, and
follow us on Twitter. @TaraBHinton. I plan to post updates not only on sporting events but on many different
aspects of our students’ day and evening activities. If you do not have Twitter, you can still follow my
tweets on our school webpage and our campus Facebook page.
Please make sure to take advantage of all of the avenues of communication that we offer.
• To start, the Boulter Middle School website is full of great information and we urge you to
check the website often for news and updates.
• Make sure to check your email regularly! We send the vast majority of our communications
home via email.
• Please read our monthly newsletter, the "Viking Messenger." All Viking families will receive
a weekly call to urge you to read the newsletter. This is our primary mode of communicating
important announcements and event information to parent/guardian and we appreciate you taking the
time to "stay in the loop!"
Parent/guardian and community members are encouraged to participate and become involved at our
school. We actively ask for your support, ideas and suggestions. Our incredible PTA organizes and
funds some of our most popular programs and activities. I encourage you to get acquainted and get
involved. You will find the effort enjoyable and rewarding.
We hope you will find that Boulter Middle School is truly a place where learning is joyful and
children delight in coming to school.
To all of my fellow Vikings, let’s make it a great year, Be On a Time, Be On a Task, and Be On a
Mission, and Find a Way to Win! #FW2
