Dear MMS Parents,
As I contemplate our return to school in a few weeks, I am struck by the importance of working together to ensure a healthy and happy experience for our students. Planning for the unknown is difficult and fraught with challenges, but, in my heart, I truly believe that if any school can do it, MMS can!
Our orientation this year will focus on welcoming our students back to school, facilitating friendships within the cohorts, and creating an environment that is not only physically safe, but emotionally safe as well. We will also spend time reviewing protocols and procedures and discussing the expectations of remote learning.
Although divided into cohorts, our grade level teams are still in place. Our students will have the opportunity to participate in virtual team building and collaboration with their peers throughout the year. We will continue to encourage forming new friendships, developing positive relationships with the staff, and taking risks, both academically and socially and emotionally.
We all have many questions regarding what the future might hold for our school. It is my hope that we can partner in making decisions that further the growth and development of each student.
I look forward to working with you this year.
Principal, Middlesex Middle School
