    Dear Klinger Family,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the Principal of Eugene Klinger Middle School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education.  I have been dedicated to the field of education for twenty-one years, both as a middle school special education teacher in the Cheltenham School District and as a house principal at Central Bucks High School- East. As the parent of two boys, ages twelve and fifteen, I recognize the importance of a strong home/school connection. A parent is a child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met in a safe, positive, and nurturing community. I am excited and eager to join the Klinger family as an educational leader and look forward to partnering with you to ensure your child's success.

    I will work hard to continue the legacy of achievement established at Klinger by building strong relationships with parents, students, teachers and staff, and community partners. We will focus on continuing the goals established in Centennial so we can continue to increase each student’s joy of learning, sense of curiosity and creativity, and personal achievement.

    I want to thank Mr. Ford and all the Klinger staff for their support last year, welcoming me with such warmth; what a wonderful community. This year we will continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous and relevant and help them make real-world connections with what they learn.  As your principal, it is important to me that each student knows he or she is valued and cared for as a member of our school community. This relationship enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  My is door is always open and I welcome your input: please feel free to call or email me throughout the school year.  

    I look forward to working with you to ensure that your daughter or son at Klinger meets their goals and has a successful school year!

    Best Regards,

    Martin Hayes
    Principal, Klinger Middle School
