Mexico Middle School

Mexico Middle School is proud to serve Mexico’s 6-8th grade students by executing our mission with fidelity daily:

Making

Minds

Stronger

Within our walls you will find first class teams of teachers and students working and learning together.  MMS faculty and staff are dedicated to helping our students grow into successful young adults.  Our vision for all of our students:

 

Educating, Engaging, & Empowering Students to Become Lifelong Learners

To drive our purpose we have two building goals for the 2016-2017 school year.

 

Goal 1:  80% of MMS students will meet their individualized reading goal by the end of the 2016-2017 school year.

 

Goal 2:  84% of MMS students will fall in the first tier of the behavioral triangle, earning zero to one discipline referrals during the 2016-2017 school year.

 

 

Teachers, parents, and students are working together to cooperatively achieve both goals this year during class, GROWL, and PAWS.  Students are using PAWS time to develop and monitor individual reading goals cooperatively with teachers.  Goals are worked on during GROWL, PAWS, as well as elective and core classes.

MMS is in their third year of implementing the Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) model.  This year’s foci are the continued teaching of the PBIS matrix as well as implementing Tier II interventions for those students receiving 2 or more office refferrals.

SCHOOL ARRIVAL PLANS:

Students, our school opens at 7:30 am.  Only those students who ride a Mexico School bus or are attending Catch Up Cafe may enter earlier.  If these conditions do not apply to you, then you may not arrive on school grounds before 7:30 am.  

Parents, please have this in your morning plans as we do not have supervision for your children until this time.  Students cannot be standing around outside the building unsupervised.  So make your plans with your family beforehand. 

Students, arrive on time, prepared and ready for to learn.
