A Message from the Principal - Mr. Chris Sauer

Fall 2018

 

The Middle School welcomes back all returning students and wishes a hearty hello to new students to our building this year. Students will return to the 2018-2019 School Year with refurbishments and building enhancements in a number of various places. The most visible upgrade has been the conversion from chalkboards to whiteboards in every classroom, helping to promote technology, innovation and create a 21st Century learning environment.

At the Middle School, staff believes that comprehension and learning begins with having a firm grasp of reading and writing skills. Success begins with literacy. Consequently, every classroom will have an enhanced emphasis on this vital educational skill. Apart from this, students will be encouraged and promoted to have respect for one another in a safe and secure environment. MS staff members will be focusing more on writing skills in all classrooms this year.  Students will have the opportunity to practice formal and informal writing.  We want students to realize that writing can be fun, and even plan to spearhead a number of writing contests throughout the year.

Outside of the classroom, there are a number of co-curricular opportunities in which students can become involved. We offer students the opportunity to participate in the following:  football, cheerleading, cross country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, softball, baseball, bowling club, drama club, Builder's Club, Student Ambassadors, Student Leadership Team, All-In Student Academy, National Junior Honor Society, and more!  Get involved!!!

Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved with the learning process, and can most readily do so by signing up on the website!  Join the PTA.  The building needs help planning fundraisers and events for our students!  Call the office or email a staff member.

We look forward to a successful 2018-2019 School Year.
