Mundelein High School

Superintendent's Updates

Welcome Back Letter
August 11, 2022
 

Dear District 120 families,

Whether you are a long-established Mundelein High School family or new to our school community, I want to wish you a warm welcome to the 2022-23 school year.

We’re very excited to begin our 61st year under a new leadership team at MHS. Along with Principal Alexandria Rios Taylor, we’ve added Associate Principal of Operations Michael Souza and Assistant Principal of Student Life Stevee Libert. This gives us a mix of new faces in familiar roles and one familiar face in a new role.

Both our Principal and Associate Principal are new to the community, coming over from Glenbard East High School. But Stevee Libert is a familiar face around MHS. She most recently served as the MHS Fine Arts Department Chair and summer school principal. In her new role, Libert will be responsible for clubs and activities, student services, the Wellness Center, problem-solving teams and summer school.

This dynamic new leadership team will provide a strong basis of support for our students, our staff and our families.  Principal Taylor brings with her the idea that “everyone is a genius when operating within their own skillset.” This simply means that every student at MHS will have the opportunity to succeed.

And, as we inch closer to the first day of school, there is a palpable energy in the air. Teachers are excited, kids are excited and we hope parents are excited. The anticipation of returning to classrooms, ballfields, gymnasiums, theaters and music rooms has created a buzz in our community.

We want to use that excitement as a springboard for our school year. Certainly, there’s much work ahead, whether it’s practicing for football or studying for a math test. But the positive energy that grows out of school spirit and is kindled by supportive staff will drive our kids to reach their full potential.

We hope the 2022-23 school year is everything you expected and more. We look forward to new beginnings, new friendships and new opportunities. We’re proud to be Mundelein Mustangs and are excited about the great year ahead.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kevin Myers
Superintendent, District 120
