It with extreme gratitude that I introduce myself as the principal of Dana Middle School. While I live in Long Beach and have spent most of my career working in schools in Wilmington, Harbor City and Lomita, for as long as I can remember, I have heard about the amazing sense of community that exists in San Pedro. I know that Dana Middle School carries with it a rich tradition of students, teachers, staff members, and parents coming together around a shared purpose of improving and achieving. I am very honored to join this community and mission!
This particular school year brings with it many uncertainties. However, one thing we can all be assured of is that we will work together as a school team to ensure that every child receives an education that prepares him or her for the rigors of high school, and eventually, the complexities of college and/or a career in the 21st century.
Dana’s former principal, Mr. Gebhart, is now the principal at San Pedro High School, so I am certain that his connection to both schools will heighten the relationship that already exists between our campuses. In addition, we are in the process of “remodeling” our website in a concerted effort to make that the one-stop shop for you to stay connected and get your news and updates about our school.
Again, I am excited to begin the work of the 2020-21 school year. Our campus may not be open in the traditional sense, but my door, remotely or not, is always open to you. Please use the contact information below to reach out and introduce yourself, or share any concerns or questions you may have. And, be sure to keep checking our website for calendar updates and opportunities to learn more about how to get involved at Dana Middle School.
Sincerely, Colin Donohoe Principal Dana Middle School (310) 241-1101 firstname.lastname@example.org
Our DANA MIDDLE SCHOOL is the perfect environment to discover the world!
