(What we will see as we carry out the mission; what we want to become)
W. S. Permenter Middle School will be a premier school preparing our students to become global competitors.
Our values are based on the Six Pillars of Character. Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship shape who we are, what we do, and how we educate our students.
Dr. Katrina Lemons
I count it as joy to serve as the new principal of Permenter Middle School. Because I primarily view myself simply as a mom who wants to do what’s best for students, my decisions are both data and student driven. Prior to being named to this role, I served as a Special Education Compliance Coordinator in Cedar Hill ISD. Before becoming a member of Longhorn Nation in 2020, I served as an Assistant Principal in Waxahachie and Mansfield Independent School Districts. Between my time as a classroom teacher and campus administrator, I have served students and teachers in the middle school setting for 20 years.
I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Houston, a Master of Science Degree in Training and Development from Texas A&M University at Commerce and multiple educator certifications from the state of Texas. Currently I am pursuing an Ed.D. in Leadership and Learning in Organizations from Vanderbilt University with November 2022 as the projected completion date.
Our focus this year will be laser sharp with 3 primary areas of concentration: Scholar Safety, Scholar Achievement and Scholar Social and Emotional Well-Being. I look forward to partnering with others to ensure we are always aligned with our focus.
