Tom Karlin Foundation

Students in Mrs. Schulz's social studies class are studying abstract "walls" that have the potential to stop people from living their best life.


Pella Middle School partnered with Community 1st Credit Union and Crossroads of Pella to bring the Tom Karlin Foundation to our school to speak with the social studies classes.


Representatives from the foundation talked about mental health and ways to deal with mental health issues in a healthy way, which included national and local groups that are leading the way in helping with mental health.

Student Council Leadership Training

Members from the middle school student council participated in the Iowa Valley Adventures Course in Marshalltown on April 26. Mrs. Kristin Schulz, our student council students, and Dr. Eric Recker participated in this great teaming and learning opportunity.
