Principal's Corner


Dear Families,

 Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 academic year! Our teachers and staff are so excited and looking forward to a great year filled with rich learning experiences for your child. Our focus is on providing each child with new challenges that will result in a rewarding school experience.

 There are many dedicated professionals at Wagner who are committed to ensuring your child’s success. Over the years, as both a teacher and an administrator, I have been asked by families what they can do to help support the school’s efforts. Some things that you can do include:

  • Help your child set up a homework location and schedule. Research has shown that students who diligently complete homework are consistently successful. Students are expected to complete homework and read for a minimum of 45 minutes. Additionally, a Wagner planner is a great organization tool and can be purchased from your child’s homeroom teacher for $7.00. Be sure to read the family handbook with your child that is included in your Welcome Folder. Create your child’s schedule and help them stick to it.
  • Attend curriculum night on Thursday, September 20th, 4:30-7:30 PM. During this evening you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s teachers, guidance counselor and assistant principal. At this time, teachers will explain their class expectations, homework policies and provide additional ways for you to support your child’s learning.
  • For those of you who are new to the school, we have an exceptional Parents’ Association! Come to the first Parents’ Association meeting on Friday, September 28th at 8:45am, to learn how you can become involved.

As we begin the year, please remember that this is your school and we welcome your involvement. Remember that we are here to help. The staff at Wagner Middle School is committed to providing your child with the best education and will do everything possible to make your experience at Wagner Middle School a positive one. Although I want to make myself available to you, my first priority is to the students and the staff when they are in the building. For this reason, the best time to get in touch with school administration is before 8 AM or after 3:15 PM. Unless it is an emergency, we generally do not return phone calls until after 3:15 PM.

For those families who use the internet regularly, email our school’s parent coordinator, Sheila Gonzalez-Liffey, (, to join our school’s listserv. Once signed up, notices and announcements that are sent home via backpack mail, will be automatically e-mailed to you. Please also regularly check our school website at for important information including daily announcements, letters from assistant principals, etc.

I look forward to working with you and your child. It is going to be a great year!

About Us

Students appreciate that they are challenged academically in an environment where teachers take the time to get to know them personally. They also like all the opportunities that are available to them in a big school setting including our extensive after‑school, band, and sports programs. Parents appreciate the diverse student population and dedicated staff, and they also value the accessibility of the administrators and teachers. Students and families work closely with an assistant principal and guidance counselor. In addition to a strong core curriculum, Wagner has one of the largest music programs in the city, providing approximately 500 students with instrumental classes.

Weather Station

Weather Underground PWS KNYNEWYO1024     Wagner Middle School is excited to announce that we now have a weather station operating on our roof that provides localized weather to our school. Connected over the internet through Weather Underground, we can get extremely local forecasts. Weather Underground is a global community of people connecting data from environmental sensors like weather stations and air quality monitors and provides the rich, hyperlocal data we want to power our passion for learning at Wagner. It is providing local weather data to NOAA for use by both meteorologists and climatologists, both amateur and professional alike. The weather station was procured through funds from Urban Advantage and parent donations. Kudos to Mr. Winterfield and Mr. J. Colon for all your hard work by not only bringing this incredible weather station to our school but also actually installing on the roof as well. We would also like to give a shout out to our favorite custodial engineer, Mr. McParland for all his help as well.

Respect For All

The citywide Respect For All program was launched in 2007 to build the capacity of staff and students to actively promote a community of inclusion in each of our schools. The importance of promoting respect for diversity in our daily practice is vital to creating and sustaining an inclusive school climate and culture in each of our schools so that all students feel valued, supported and safe.
