A Personal Note from our Principal-Thomas Seckler

I'd like to welcome all of our families to Lucas Middle School for the 2013-14 school year.  We are extremely excited about our new middle school and we look forward to working with you and your child to achieve success.  At Lucas, every student will receive a well-rounded, rigorous educational experience centered around Project Based Learning.  Their future depends on all of us (family, school, and community) working together to ensure our students have a positive and successful middle school experience.
