Hello Pine Lake Middle School,


I am thrilled and honored to share with you that I will be joining the Middle School team as the new Principal. I am looking forward to connecting with teachers, students, and families as I seek to learn more about the middle school community, begin to establish relationships and partner with you as we continue moving the school forward. 


My professional background is rooted in education and leadership. For the past twenty-eight years, I have worked in both traditional and charter public education as a leader, teacher, program coordinator, and so much more, and I look forward to using these collective experiences as your new principal. 


For those of you who do not know me, I am a passionate educator who believes in a team approach. As a leader, I strive to communicate and share in a way where we are continually elevating one another. I set high expectations, not only for myself, but for the students and teachers, and I continually promote excellence within academics, elective offerings and extra curricular programs. I am excited to share my passion!


In addition to my professional achievements, one of my greatest accomplishments is my family. I am a wife to my loving, supportive husband, Nick Reuter, and I am a parent to Nick and Malorie. Just as I want what is best for my children I will work tirelessly to ensure your children have the best experience at PLP’s Middle School. I share in this community’s commitment to care for your children each and every day while providing them a world-class learning environment.


To our students, I cannot wait to meet you all! I hope that you are excited for this coming school year and that you are out this summer playing and recharging with your family and friends. If you are reading tons of books that would be great, too. It is going to be a fun year learning together. 


In closing, please know that my door is always open to you. I heartily welcome your conversation and positive input throughout this year. You will receive communication about opportunities for us to connect in person in the coming days and weeks. I look forward to celebrating our collective successes during the 2023-2024 school year. I cannot wait to serve the teachers and staff, the children, and our community as Principal of the Middle School.


Kindest regards,

Lori Reuter
