Good Afternoon BMS Parents and Families,
I am writing to you today to share some wonderful news with all of you. I am please to announce to all of you that Mrs. Lisa Oliver has accepted the permanent position as principal of the Beverly Middle School! Earlier this month, I reached out to both the staff and the school community for feedback regarding this school year. After reviewing the overwhelmingly positive feedback from both parents and staff, combined with my day to day observations, I extended an offer to Mrs. Oliver to become the permanent principal. I am so happy to share that she has agreed. This has certainly been an unusual year to assume leadership of any building, and in particular the largest middle school in Massachusetts! Throughout it all, Mrs. Oliver has demonstrated grace and poise, and the strength of her leadership is noticed every day in every interaction with students, staff and families. Please join me in congratulating her on becoming your permanent principal! Congratulations Mrs. Oliver!!
Sue Charochak, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
