Principal Hobson


My name is Ms. Hobson and I am excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Block Middle School! My philosophy of education is that all students will learn and grow academically, socially, and emotionally. By working together as a team, we can ensure that all students feel supported and reach their optimal level of success. Registration will take place on August 2nd at Central High School from 9 am-6pm. Also, don’t forget that 7th-grade orientation will be held at Block Middle School on August 7th from 8:30-12:30. The first day of school for all students will be on Monday, August 13th. Block Middle School students will start promptly at 8:30 am. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we will see you soon.
