Dear Fort Greely Middle School Students, Staff and Parents: Greetings! My name is Mr. Mayer and I am the new Principal here at Fort Greely. It is a distinct pleasure to work in this capacity. I am just now returning to Alaska after having spent the last two years in Northern California. Prior to moving to California, I spent 25 years living in the Matanuska Valley and Anchorage vicinity. It is truly great to be back! I am also the proud father of three children; one in college, one in high school and one in middle school. I love being a Dad!

Parent involvement is very important. In fact, research suggests that parent involvement is very important in promoting student academic success. Please discuss your availability with the front office. We would love to see as many parents as possible on a regular basis! Fort Greely Middle School is a truly awesome place. The Staff are very engaged in their promotion of academic excellence. My vision for Fort Greely Middle School will be to bring out the best in students, staff, the community and myself!
