“It is a wonderful feeling to be able to return to the Piper school community that provided me so much opportunity at the start of my career and give back as principal of Piper Middle School,” Mr. Leffert said. “The Piper community is so supportive of its schools and I am looking forward to the opportunity to reconnect with students, staff, and parents to build on this strong sense of community at Piper Middle School. I have always admired the level of excellence expected at all levels within Piper, and I am happy be a part of that tradition.”
