    Dear Petoskey High School Parents and Guardians, 


    It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year at Petoskey High School. At Petoskey High School, we believe in creating “a special place for everyone” and I know the staff is dedicated to fostering this for every student. 


    I am excited to be joining the Public Schools of Petoskey family this year. This is the start of my fifteenth year in education. Most recently, I was the Principal of Tecumseh West STEAM Center in Tecumseh, Michigan. Previously, was a Middle School Principal, a High School Mathematics Teacher, and volleyball and soccer coach at Clinton Community Schools.  


    To help you stay informed with happenings at Petoskey High School, I will send updates out via the High School Twitter account @PHSNorthmen. If you already follow this account, it is the same one, if not, directions were sent home in the orientation packet. You can also follow my Principal twitter account @PHSgamble to see the High School through my lens.  


    Also, you are always welcome to call me at 231-348-2161 or email with any questions or concerns. I will be happy to discuss your student’s education at Petoskey High School with you.  


    I’m looking forward to a wonderful school year with you and your student(s). I hope to meet many of you at Open House on Wednesday, August 28, from 5:00-6:30 pm.
