A note from the Principal

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

The middle school staff would like to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year.  Our building closure last spring brought many challenges for staff, parents, and students. We quickly transitioned to on-line learning and continued providing quality learning opportunities to our students. Our success is directly related to the dedication and effort put in by our staff, students and parents each and every day.  I want to thank the community for its continued support during these unusual times.    

We have a few changes to the middle school staff this year. Congratulations to Linda Collins and Bob Hunter on their retirement. Krysten Smith will be moving to the  6th grade Science position this year. We are excited to announce the addition of Payton Shays to our Roughrider family . She is a recent graduate of The University of Mount Union and will be teaching 6th grade Language Arts. 

Throughout this school year the middle school will continue its journey to implement the District’s Focus 3 culture initiative. The skills developed in this initiative include being able to effectively respond to the events with which you are faced, ultimately leading to more productive results (E+R=O).  The development of these skills will be especially useful during the unprecedented times in which we are living.   

We look forward to the new school year and to our continued partnership with our families and our community.
