Parent, guardians and community members,
Thank you for visiting St. Johns Middle School, a supportive place for middle level students to grow and thrive. We embrace our motto, "Working as a team to build the future!" Our PURPOSE is to educate the whole student through building relationships, estalishing high expectations, and providing innovative and engaging instruction to become independent, responsible, self-confident, contributing members of an ever-changing global society. Our MISSION is to work together to educate ALL students to be successful now and in the future.
Middle school is a important time in your child's education. It helps student shift their focus from a single teacher to several teachers and from external supports to his/her own personal educational ownership and responsibility. Students explore more sophisticated and thoughtt provoking ideas in their reading, they embark on more rigorous math, begin to tackle advanced reading; engage in higher-level, more rigorous math; choose from a wide array of elective offering; and are encouraged to participate in the social, service, and athletic fabric of the school community.
The links at the right will help you stay up-to-date on school events and news, celebrations of student success, get in touch with school staff, help your child get extra help, and more. In addition, you'll find the Student/Parent Handbook, common documents, immunization requirements, bell schedules, lunch menus, transportation, and a host of other information you may need.
We are pleased to maintain this website as a resource for our students and famliies. However, the best source of information about your child's classroom behavior and academic progress will always be his/her teacher. Parental involvement in a child’s education is essential for academic success. We invite you to visit our school regularly, attend parent teacher conferences, and participate in the SJMS Community Group (our middle level parent-teacher-community organization, or PTO).
If you require additional assistance, do not hesitate to contact the school using the phone numbers listed in the lower right. For upcoming events, timely updates and celebrations of student successes, don't forget to:
