From the Principal’s Corner...

With great honor and excitement, I introduce myself, Art Meyer, as the new 7-12 Principal at Lake Park Audubon. My passion for education and supporting all students’ success has been shaped over the last 22 years as a teacher, a coach, and three years as an administrator. In each of my roles, I have sought to ensure each student and the school’s success by providing the best instructional and extracurricular opportunities and supports possible. Similarly, it is my number one priority at Lake Park Audubon to ensure that every student receives the most well-rounded education possible, and our staff is welcomed, supported, and given the resources they need to succeed!

A well-rounded education means outstanding instruction from top-notch teachers and extracurricular opportunities that enable students to develop character, cultivate passion, and explore the world outside of the classroom. When considering the opportunities available to students, I often look to my own experiences and involvement in high school, college courses, athletics, clubs, and volunteer efforts that helped shape me into who I am today. I am excited to see students engaged in debate in the classroom, scoring the winning point on the court, mat, or field, performing in the musical, or any other area that peaks student interest and passion.

However, none of this is possible without the great collaboration of students, parents, school board, staff, administration, and community. I look forward and consider it a privilege to get to know the fantastic students, parents, school board members, and staff at Lake Park Audubon, while also learning about the rich school history and success. One of the most significant takeaways from the conversations I have had so far is the school and community’s immense enthusiasm and pride.

Like many of you, my great love in life is my family. I am married to my wife, Michelle (who is a paralegal for the United States Attorney Office), we live in Barnesville, MN, and have three children. Our oldest daughter, Brooke, is a high school Special Education teacher. Our son, Connor, is a Senior at UND majoring in Criminal Justice. Our youngest child, Claire, is a sophomore at UND studying Occupational Therapy. All three of my children are different from one another, and they serve as a constant reminder to me that school must be able to look different for different types of children, yet outcomes for all must be high.

I look forward to meeting and building great relationships with my new Raider Nation Family!

Kind regards,

Art Meyer
