Welcome Back!

A Message from the Superintendent

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

We are so excited to welcome you back to the 2021-22 school year! We anticipate much joy as our students meet their new teachers, settle back into the school routines, reacquaint themselves with their peers, and join one of the diverse extra-curricular activities open to them.  This stability and structure will do wonders for kids!  Our daily focus is to assist every student to maximize their learning and make measurable growth as we individually work with students to address unfinished or gaps in learning stemming from the Covid pandemic.  We are prepared to meet students where they are at and move them forward in collaboration with our parents. It has been a unique 1 ½ years and it will take a team effort to ensure we address any learning gaps for our students in a meaningful and individualized manner.  We have the greatest staff in the state and they truly believe your kids deserve our best — EVERY student matters! 

Thank you for your continued support of our staff and our mission, Dr. Meyer, Superintendent

Junior Highs No More

Over the past two years, the District has been planning the transition for our junior high schools to become middle schools.  So what is the difference?  Traditionally, our 6th grade students have been housed at the elementary schools and our junior highs housed our 7th and 8th graders.  In the past two years, we have slowly incorporated some of our 6th grade classes into the junior highs and this school year, all 6th graders will be at the junior high schools, which will now be official middle schools.  There are many benefits to adding 6th grades to the middle level.  Students are able to spend a full three years in the middle school, form relationships with peers and staff, and slowly transition into a school where they will have a variety of classes and teachers.  The benefit to our elementary schools is that a little more room is freed up to accommodate our very quickly growing school district.  You may not have noticed yet, but Lakeland Middle School and Timberlake Middle School have new signs to celebrate this change.
