Mr. Mike Bakker
Southview Activities Director
I want to welcome you to the home of the Hawks/ Hawkettes at Southview Middle School. I am very excited to be working with the students, parents, staff, and sponsors as we work to build the activites programs for Ankeny High School.
I have a deep commitment to the success of activity programs at Ankeny High School. I believe that commitment begins with organized activities at the middle school level. It is my vision to provide support for coaches and sponsors to teach all participants the necessary skills and teamwork in a school setting. I would like to enhance the opportunity coaches and sponsors have to positively influence participants toward a lifetime involvement in activities. I further envision activity programs at the middle school level teaching participants to strive for excellence with a sense of integrity and discipline. I believe in the significance of all students participating in one or more activity, club, or sport to build those connections in the academic setting as well.
My wife Michelle is a math teacher at Ankeny Centennial, and we have two boys, Ryne and Tryce, students at Prairie Trail Elementary.
