    Dear Bogota Middle School Families and Community Members,

    My name is Dr. Erick Alfonso. Our Superintendent, Mr. Kennedy and Board of Education Members have bestowed upon me the honor and privilege of leading our new middle school as its Principal. Over the last 2 years, I had the opportunity to serve as Vice Principal for our High School and cultivate great relationships with our community. 

    These are truly exciting times for the borough of Bogota. The expansion of our District has given us the opportunity to implement new programs and initiatives to best suit the demands of a continuously changing world. At Bogota Middle School, we will strive to meet the needs of the whole child (academically, socially, and emotionally) as we foster a culture of growth and citizenship. Our dedicated staff will facilitate innovative curricular offerings that drive rigor, relevance, and resilience. Our goal is to provide students with the tools necessary to have a successful high school experience and ultimately become contributing members of their community. 

    As we begin this school year, I wish our students the greatest success embarking on their new educational journeys. Please feel free to contact me with any needs you may have throughout the year. It is my honor to serve our families, community, and stakeholders.


    Erick Alfonso, Ed.D.
