Experience the power of public education.
Welcome Parents and Students,
It is with great enthusiasm that I write to you as we prepare to embark upon another fantastic school year here at Maumelle Middle School. We have been planning all summer long to make the 2018-2019 school year our best year yet.
Last year was filled with significant accomplishments in many areas related to student performance including academics, athletics, and the performing arts. The greatest indicator of our success was being removed from the state school improvement list. MMS is an achieving school now. Not because we say we are but because we work hard at it! Due to the tremendous effort of our teachers and students along with your steadfast support, we are no longer a “FOCUS” status school. This has been a goal for us from day one and is worthy of celebration. You should all be proud.
As principal, I assure you that my aim is to lead our school to higher levels of achievement as MMS continues to strive to become the school of choice in this community. We always consider the safety and well-being of our students as our top priority. This is foundational in bringing about positive student outcomes. It is essential to the service we provide for our children and families each and every day. To this, we are all dedicated.
I am anticipating the start of school with the expectation of achieving great things. Everyone is a part of it. I encourage all parents to join one of our auxiliaries such as PTSO or our Band and Athletic Boosters. Consider being a volunteer with one of our student clubs and organizations like the National Junior Honor Society, Quiz Bowl, and/or Book Club. There is room for you here and we appreciate your help.
Please check our webpage -mms.pcssd.org- regularly for information and updates. This is the easiest way to stay abreast of the happenings at Maumelle Middle School. As you can tell, I am excited and you should be too. It’s going to be the best year ever. Let’s get it started!
