"A School of Excellence"

Principal's Message

Another great week in Tiger Land! If you ever wondered why I always start my message with the same first line, it is because, as educators, I think it is great that we are blessed to be in a position to be able to educate the minds of our future. We at Spaulding Middle had a week “in our hands” to do just that and that makes for a great week! Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is quoted as saying:

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.”

Spaulding Middle Faculty and Staff are achieving that goal. Not only do we teach our students the required academic subjects, but we teach students about character every day. Job well Done.

Thanks to everyone for being well prepared for our parent-teacher conferences last Thursday evening. It was very successful! We will continue with the individual teacher conferences this week. The schedule will be in your box so that you can be just as prepared.

English and Social Studies Departments continued with Instructional Rounds this past week. Teachers are continuing to say that they like being able to get out of their classroom to go to other classrooms to see the wonderful practices going.
