Neal Stayton, Assistant Principal

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I return as a member of the NSE/SIB K-8 Community!  I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with an amazing group of people; the teachers, students, staff and stakeholders are second to none. As the Middle School AP,  I hope to inspire our students to strive for greatness, never quit, and always do their best!  I will be there every day to help instill this positive attitude in them. 

Life is full of obstacles; you will fall down.  It is those that refuse to stay down that succeed.

I encourage you to help our students to meet and exceed the expectations we have set for them.  I am very much looking forward to meeting each of you over the course of the 2019-2020 school year. Please know my door is always open. I will always make time to assist and support our Seahawk Family!
