Jay Vandercook, Leslie Middle School Dean of Students

Welcome to Leslie Middle School! My name is Jay Vandercook, and I am the Dean of Students. I am here to help your child through the wonderful, and sometimes challenging, middle school years.

Some people like baseball, others are passionate about reading, but what I find fascinating is talking to, connecting with, and helping young people. I would like the students here to think of my office as a warm and friendly place, where they are always welcome. My office is also a safe haven - a place where they can get help if they ever feel confused or worried.

Leslie Middle School is an awesome school, but that doesn't mean our students won't face challenges while they are here. I would like your children to know they have an ally, and I am an adult who will always be here for them.

Please feel free to call me, or stop in so we can meet face to face. I am truly delighted to have the opportunity to serve you and our Leslie students!

Best regards and Go Hawks,

Jay Vandercook
