From the Principal:

Dear Parents,

Another school year is under way. These opening weeks have brought a high level of eagerness and excitement from our faculty and students. Our teachers continue to focus on personalized learning; promoting literacy and problem solving. We will work closely with our students to meet their needs, develop their skills, and enjoy the learning process.

At the Middle School we strive to create a positive culture and climate; promoting student involvement in all areas of school. There are a variety of clubs, sports and activities we offer. We are continuing to offer new and unique opportunities (i.e. tech interns). We also encourage all students to take advantage of academic supports such as checking in with their teachers during 10th period.

The Middle School has somewhat returned to “normal”. Student attendance is high. We have continued to start our day in community forum. We have used this time to assist students with organizational skills and discussing respectful and responsible behavior. Our PRIDE initiative is continuing as well. PRIDE (perseverance, responsibility, integrity, dignity and excellence) represents characteristics we promote in the district. Throughout the year we will have a variety of activities that assist students with these five essential attributes.

Students are engaged in learning, but we continue to need the support from families, to ensure students are following through on assignments. Together let’s capture a passion for learning and continue supporting student growth and achievement.

From the Assistant Principal:

Greetings from the Assistant Principal,

Now that the school year is in full swing at the Williamson Middle School, you may have heard your student refer to their i-Ready diagnostic test. The i-Ready program is a tool we use at the Middle School to support our students and target their learning.

Once the i-Ready benchmark test is completed, your student’s teachers analyze that data and assess if there are any gaps. The teachers then target specific interventions based on this information. This is known as our Progress Monitoring system. If a student has mastered a skill, then the teacher assesses and addresses a new skill. At the Middle School, we monitor Progress each quarter. This allows us to target instruction to the child’s personal needs.

We make every effort to provide our students with the highest quality education. If you have any concerns regarding the progress of your child, please do not hesitate to contact the Middle School Guidance office.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call at (315) 589-9665.
