Principal’s Welcome

Kenny LooseveltWelcome to York Middle School.  

I love being 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 kids don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

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 is a Freshman in college, Brooks an 11th grader, Eliza in 7th grade, and Kale is in 5th grade.  Our family loves watching and participating in sports and activities, and we enjoy 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 are unique and require 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 me on Twitter @kennyloosvelt
