Principal Tim Baynes

Meet Principal Tim Baynes!

Hello, Mustang families! One of the best parts of being your principal is getting the chance to visit classrooms and reading to students, watching teachers and students working together, and seeing students have fun at school! A few fun facts about me: I love the children’s book “Wedgie and Gizmo.” My family and I enjoy listening to the soundtrack from “Guardians of the Galaxy.” And, if I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be apple pie!
