From the Principal

Dear Parents,

     I trust that  you and your child have had a wonderful first week of school!  I hope that by now the anxieties  associated with a  new school year have turned into the comfort of seeing our students successfully meeting the schools day to day challenges.

     Our students have gotten off to a great start.  As we visit the classrooms, we are delighted to see our students engaged, on task and excited about learning.

     Please know that  all of us here at United Middle School are  committed to maintaining  the highest standards to help all of our students achieve  academic success.  We also recognize that in order to be  successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong  partnership with you will make a great difference in your childs education. As partners in   education, we share the responsibility  for our students  success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

    We thank you in advance for your support and are looking forward to an excellent school year as together we begin our Quest for Success!

Mrs. R. Morales
