• Announcement from Saratoga Union School District


    At their April 27, 2020 meeting, the Saratoga Union School District Board of Trustees approved the appointment of Mr. Steve Hamm to the Principal position at Redwood Middle School effective July 1, 2020. Steve has worked in education for over twenty-seven years. He began his career as a classroom teacher in the Union School District, where he had the opportunity to teach at the same middle school he attended as a student.

    After receiving his Master's in Education, Steve started his administrative career in the Berryessa Union School District, first as an assistant principal before being promoted to the principal position at the same site.

    For the past six years, Steve has been working in the Cupertino Union School District as the Principal of Kennedy Middle School. During his tenure, he received the Administrator of the Year Award for Acknowledge Alliance due to his efforts to bring social-emotional learning to the forefront at the middle school level.

    When not working at the middle school, Steve spends time with his wife, two sons, and multiple pets.

    We wish to thank the team of interviewers which included Redwood staff members, administrative staff, and parent representative.

    Current Redwood Principal Barbara Neal announced her retirement in February and will continue to serve through the end of this school year. Please join us in congratulating and welcoming Steve Hamm to the Saratoga Union School District as the incoming new Principal of Redwood Middle School.
