MMS Principal Newsletter

September 11, 2017 @MMSCougarPride


It's an honor to return to MMS as your Principal. As you may or may not know, I am a proud CHS graduate (Class of 1998). I know the critical role our schools have played in my development and I am passionate about ensuring that our children receive the excellent education that I received.

This weekly newsletter will share important updates and highlight events at MMS. It's my chance to connect with families and share how we are living out our mission. At MMS we are focused on culturally responsive teaching and learning, fostering connections with our students through advisory, real world and relevant learning experiences, and ensuring that our students think critically to prepare for civic engagement.

On behalf of the MMS leadership team, faculty and staff, we look forward to partnering with our families to ensure that middle school is memorable and exciting and that it serves as the foundation for a successful high school experience. We are off to a great start! Let's have a wonderful year!

Maplewood Middle School Remind App Code @k92d29

This year, the MMS Principal has added a school-wide "Remind App" as another way to communicate with families. Many of your child's teachers will share Remind class codes for you and your child to stay up to date about class events and assignments. As needed, the MMS Principal will periodically use the Remind App to share important info with our school community. Our Maplewood Middle School school-wide code Remind code is listed above (@k92d29). The link below explains how to begin getting notifications. It's a simple way to stay in touch. Join us!
