Weekly Update

From the Desk of the Principal

January 13, 2023

Dear Masco Middle School Families,

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."
Strength to Love, 1963.

Dear Masco Middle School Families,

As we pause on Monday to remember the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his indelible mark on social justice and peace in the United States and the world, I think about the quotation above. Educating our youth to respect all people, regardless of their differences or experiences is something that we strive for everyday in school. Keeping Dr. King’s words in mind, light illuminates our path to create a peaceful world and love creates a place where all can be accepted and celebrated. These are messages that we work to reinforce within the student body in a world where they serve a role to keep darkness and hate at bay.

I hope you have a good long weekend. Please see below for a few updates this week.
