"M" Team Homepage

12 months ago

The "M" Team teachers welcome all students and their parents to the 2017-2018 school year. The keys to success during 8th grade are attentiveness, hard work, and responsible behavior. We highly encourage parents to monitor the progress of their children (see their grades) using the Home Access Center. Call or visit the Middle School office to inquire about this internet-based program. Parents need to be involved. Ask your children questions about classwork, homework, and tests. Ask to see their assignments and test results. Please email or call us with your concerns during the school year. With teachers, students, and parents working together, we all will have a rewarding year.
