Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School! I am very excited to be the principal at M. L. King Middle School and I look forward to our continued success! Please visit this website frequently to keep informed of school activities, student achievement and school success.
At King, we feel that focusing on instruction, getting students engaged in the learning process, and maximizing our learning time can continue to accomplish this success. We will teach the Georgia Common Core Standards and make sure that our students are prepared for state and district assessments.
As parents, you are our partners in your child’s education. We ask you to join us in making learning a priority. Here are some ways that you can help:
• Get your child to school on time. Our day begins at 8:45 a.m.
• Schedule a conference with your child’s teacher at least twice a semester.
• Make sure that your child does his or her homework. Homework is given for a variety of reasons, primarily to reinforce skills already taught in the classroom. It is not busy work, but a valuable learning tool.
• Check your child’s folder, agenda, and book bag.
• Read with or to your child every night. Reading is a skill critical to the mastery of all other subjects. As with any other skill, the more it is practiced, the better it gets.
• Practice those math facts (multiplication)! Although we work a lot on problem-solving in math, students must know the facts in order to get the problem correct.
• Encourage your child to practice the character traits that will help them become productive citizens: respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, and caring.
The staff here at M. L. King Middle School is excited about the challenges and rewards we know this year will bring. We look forward to working with our students, parents, and community members this year!
"Family is the first school for young children, and parents are powerful models."
