  • A Letter from Our Principal
    July 18, 2018

    To the Mansfeld Magnet Middle School Families and Community,

    My name is Seth Aleshire, and it is my honor and privilege to be your new principal of Mansfeld Magnet Middle School.  I have spent my entire career in the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD), first as a middle school social studies teacher, and most recently as the principal of Pueblo Gardens PK-8 for the past 6 years.  The purpose of this letter is to introduce myself to all of you,  the Mansfeld community that I now work for, and to let you know some important events coming up very soon as we get ready for the start of the 2018-19 school year. 

    It is well known to you and throughout TUSD of the incredible work the Mansfeld faculty does and the results of this labor.  Last year, Mansfeld was awarded the certification of excellence by the Magnet Schools of America and was given an A+ designation from the Arizona Educational Foundation.  These incredible accomplishments speak to the innovation, determination, and commitment of the Mansfeld faculty and the leadership of Mr. Richard Sanchez, who is now a Regional Superintendent in TUSD.  These state and national recognitions are an obvious source of pride to our staff and to the community that we serve and it is my goal to keep this momentum going and build upon this already strong foundation. 

    However, this work was not solely done within the confines of our school.  The success of our students is in large part due to the work you do at home such as providing time and support for homework and studying, checking on their grades and following up with their teachers, and doing the countless daily activities to support your child and help them be successful.  It is a never ending job so I want to make sure I take this opportunity to thank and congratulate you, our community, for your part in the success of Mansfeld Magnet Middle School and the students we serve.

    To that end we have several events coming soon that I want to let you know about so that we can start the school year ready for future success.

    • Schedule Pick Up: Wednesday 7/25 & 7/26 (9-11 a.m. & 1-3 p.m.): School will be open and staff will be on hand to help families pick up their schedules for the 2018-19 school year.
    • New Student Orientation: Friday 7/27 (9-11 a.m.): New Student Orientation:   We are asking parent(s) or guardian(s) attend this important event with their children to make sure all students new to Mansfeld Magnet Middle School have all the information they need to start the year with confidence.  Only new students need to attend this orientation.
    • First Day of School: Thursday 8/2, please make sure your child is here no later than 8:40 a.m. as our first bell rings at 8:43 a.m. and announcements begin at 8:47 a.m.

    I look forward to working alongside all of you this upcoming year and in the years to come. 

    Seth Aleshire, Ph.D
    Principal of Mansfeld Magnet Middle School
