Principal’s Welcome

Kenny LooseveltWelcome to York Middle School.  I am extremely excited to be the principal at YMS.  I believe it is my responsibility to ensure that each child that enrolls at YMS receives the best possible education.  I believe that every child can learn.  I believe that I can make a difference in a young persons life!

I was born and raised in Rushville NE.  I began my teaching career at Madison High School in 1999 and was the Life Science instructor as well as the wrestling coach.  In 2013 I entered my new role as principal of Madison Elementary.

My wife Audrey is a fourth grade teacher at York Elementary.  We were married in 2003.  I have four children Josie who will be in 6th grade, Brooks will be a 4th grader, Eliza will be starting Kindergarten and Kale is four.  Our family loves watching and participating in sports and activities, and we are excited about the many opportunities that the community of York has to offer.  We enjoy the outdoors and try to find time to camp and boat in the summer.

The middle school philosophy and implementation of such, is unique and requires a qualified and dedicated staff. To set the stage for success in high school and beyond, through the support of academic growth and personal development, the staff and administration at YMS are committed to providing a quality middle level education for our students.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to give me a call at the school or stop in the office, I would enjoy the chance to meet you.  Please like us on facebook and follow us on twitter @YmsDukes.
