Welcome to O.W. Best Middle School

Dear Parents, Staff, Students, and Community Members,
It is with great honor that I am writing this letter of introduction to you. My name is Aaron Mollett and I am the principal of O.W. Best Middle School.  Throughout my career, I have had many experiences as an educator that have prepared me for this tremendous opportunity. As a classroom teacher in D7, I taught in grades 4, 6, 7, and 8th. I also served as the Dean of Students for three years at O.W. Best Middle School
On a personal note, I grew up in Allen Park, went to Allen Park Public Schools.  From there I attended Western Michigan University graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education.  I have middle school endorsements in Math, Science and Physical Education. In 2003 I started at Wayne State University and graduated in 2005 with a Masters Degree in School Administration.
My son, Evan was born in 2005, I spend most of my time either coaching or attending his athletic events.  Fun fact, I have a twin sister who is two minutes older than me. In addition to my twin sister, I also have a sister eleven years older than me.  Between the two of them, I have three nephews and one niece.   
As a school administrator, I look forward to working with each and every one of you. I know there is a LOT we can learn from each other and I cannot wait to partner with you to help our children succeed. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me regarding any questions or concerns you may have.
Aaron Mollet
Principal, O.W Best Middle School

Chromebook lending agreement

Good afternoon! Tomorrow is our last day for in-person instruction. Mp2 classes were asked today if they needed a Chromebook for home. Please talk with your child regarding this. If you do need one, and your child reported that you didn't, please email their Mp2 teacher asap. There is a form to fill out for the Chromebooks. We will need that filled out in order to send one home with your child tomorrow. We should have enough Chromebooks to go home with everyone who has requested one. Chargers will be limited and we want to limit the chargers to one per family. There isn't a deposit for the Chromebook. It will be a huge help if students are in attendance tomorrow. If they are absent, we will do our best to get them a Chromebook as soon as possible on Tuesday. We will limit how many people are in the building waiting. Please be patient with us. Teachers have been preparing their in-person students for online learning, they will continue to prepare them tomorrow as well. School pictures will be rescheduled. We will try for January.
