Dear Hickory Creek Middle School Families,
As a way of introduction, my name is Jason Crockett and I am honored and thrilled to introduce myself as the new Principal of Hickory Creek Middle School in Frankfort School District 157C. It is exciting to be part of a school and community with “A Tradition of Excellence in preparing all students to be confident, life-long learners and productive citizens by challenging them to reach their fullest potential and by providing a quality educational environment in partnership with family and community.”
I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than fourteen years - all of them in the middle school environment. My most recent administrative experience was as the Assistant Principal at Bryan Middle School in Elmhurst. I believe my extensive experience as an educational leader will benefit Hickory Creek Middle School and I’m looking forward to working with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success. I believe the learning environment should not only support students academically, but socially and emotionally.
As we prepare for the 2019-2020 school year, our HCMS team of highly qualified and dedicated educators will continue our rigorous and relevant curriculum and high standards for all of our students. Our learners of Hickory Creek will be responsible, life-long learners, effective communicators, and problem solvers. Combining deep-rooted traditions and current best practices, we are dedicated to equipping our learners with the tools necessary to be successful in the 21st century.
As your Principal, I will ensure that everyone who walks through our doors – teachers, students, and parents – are excited and feel safe to be here! We are looking forward to building and strengthening our home to school connections that will support your child’s academic and social emotional well-being.
My door is always open and I hope each of you will take full advantage of that. I look forward to meeting all of you and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
Mr. Jason Crockett, Principal
Hickory Creek Middle School
Frankfort School District 157-C
