6th Grade

Welcome From Mr. Nash, Assistant Principal

Dear Sixth Grade Families and Students,

I would like to personally welcome you to the Irwin Altman Middle School 172 family and let you know that I will be working directly with you and your child during their three years at our school.  My name is Myles Nash and I have been an assistant principal in District 26 for the past eight years and I am really looking forward to working with the entire community to develop your children into the ‘professional students’ that are as comfortable ‘showing what they know’ academically as they are with speaking up for themselves and their community.  I believe that I am approachable and with my ‘open-door policy’ often participate in most opportunities to authentically interact with our students.

I worked throughout the pandemic in the school building because I wanted everyone to feel how we can be stronger together and I continue to operate that way as I know how scary a transition year can be. With that said, I want you to know that I, our sixth-grade teacher team, and our support staff will be here for you and your child every step of the way. By communicating and acting together, we will ensure a supportive social-emotional climate where each individual child can flourish to their highest potential.
