Last night I had the opportunity to meet Joe Ciccarelli, the principal of the soon-to-be-opened Four Points Middle School. Also on hand at this informal gathering was Peggy Morisset, who will be one of the school counselors. The event was held at a private residence in River Place in an effort to allow parents of incoming students to a chance to meet Mr. Ciccarelli and ask him questions about his vision for the school, the process of selecting teachers and staff, as well as other items of interest. I was quite impressed with him (as were the parents) and he seems like the right person for the job. He was very approachable, likeable, and has a clear vision of what he wants to accomplish at Four Points. He has been in the Leander ISD for over 25 years, over 15 of those as a teacher. He is currently a vice principal at Cedar Park High School. Four Points Middle School opens in the Fall of 2010 to relieve the overcrowding at exemplary-rated Canyon Ridge Middle School. There is no reason to believe that under Joe Ciccarelli’s leadership there won’t be a second exemplary-rated Middle School in the Four Points Area.
Over the next few months, there will be other opportunities to meet Mr. Ciccarelli and his staff, both in small groups such as this one and larger, public venues. While none of my children will be at Four Points next year, I appreciate the opportunity to attend events like these because it makes me more capable of educating my clients who are looking to buy a home in the Four Points area.
