A note from the principal...


     Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!

     Nace Office

    Greetings from the middle school!  For those of you who may not know me, I am the Big Spring Middle School principal, Mrs. Clarissa Nace. Prior to coming to the middle school, I was Newville Elementary Principal for 3 years. 

    What a unique challenge we have ahead of us this school year...one that our teachers and staff are ready to take-on!

    I am very proud of the efforts of all of our Big Spring Middle School families, teachers, and staff, as we had to quickly pivot on March 13th to a virtual, instructional platform for the health and safety of our BSSD community.  As we gear-up for the 2020-2021 school year, I feel confident that our teachers will be able to deliver on a content-rich curriculum, while embracing the social/emotional needs of our students as we remain in this pandemic.  I look forward to welcoming back all of our students into our building on September 8th, where their health and safety will remain our #1 priority moving forward.  We have spent countless hours creating a top notch instructional plan to support their safety, while continuing with our educational commitment to each of our students.   

    Mission Statement

    2020-2021 Big Spring Middle School Building Goals:

      • (Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication, Continuous Learning, Citizenship)

    On a more personal note, I am a principal who loves to frequent events to cheer-on and support all of my students in their extracurricular activities, just as I cheer-on and support my son, Jacob...who is now entering 11th grade!  How time flies!  I reside in Shermans Dale, PA with my husband (Kurt) and son (Jacob).  We love to travel and spend time with family and friends.  This summer, we traveled to the Great Smoky Mountains to visit with our Tennesse friends and families.

    Yours in education,
