McKissack Middle School Students and Families,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year and to McKissack Middle School!
McKissack Middle School is home to approximately 357 students who are returning to an all new administration, including a Dean of Students and fifteen new teachers who went through a rigorous interview process. We are offering three new classes: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Read 180 and Spanish to reach all of our students and engage them in the learning environment. Algebra I and Spanish will be our advanced classes offered for High School Credit. I have ordered four additional lap top carts and IPads for the building, so that all grade levels have readily access to technology. We are encouraging every student to get involved in an extracurricular activity and for parents to reestablish a PTA at McKissack. McKissack Middle School is a school where excellent students, professionals, and future citizens of our community grow and learn.
Our school’s vision is to provide every student with the foundation of knowledge, skills, and character necessary to excel in higher education, work, and life. The McKissack way will be "Pride, Dignity & Respect ensure success." We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment where personalized learning, rigorous academics and 21st century skills prepare students to compete internationally.
In order to pick up and drop off students, the Department of Transportation for Metro Schools has changed the start and end times for McKissack Middle School. The new start and end times will be from 9:15AM – 4:15PM on a regular school day and from 9:15AM – 12:45PM on half days. The new times for the bus routes are available on www.mnps.org. I have also changed the dress code to any solid polo shirt to meet the needs of parents and students. A copy of the new dress code is also included and will be strictly enforced. We look forward to working with you and for you!!!!
Please join us Thursday, August 28 for Open House at McKissack from 6-8 pm.
