Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:

                 

It is with great excitement that we welcome new and returning families to Muller Road Middle School for the 2016-2017 school year. We hope you have had a great summer break and that you are looking forward to the new school year.

Our focus for this school will continue to be “One Team, One Direction” as we strive to build on the successes of last year. This tag line symbolizes the whole team approach that we want to continue to nurture and develop amongst all stakeholders at Muller Road Middle. To accomplish this, it is imperative that we all work together to create and maintain a school culture that will ensure the social, emotional, and academic success of all our students.

This school year we will work together to meet the following goals:


·         To increase student engagement and achievement.

·         To develop a culture of community and ownership in our school.

The units of study and cross- curricular projects, embedded with world class skills and life skills, will assist our students in learning the content and skills they need to be more successful scholars and productive citizens in society.

We will continue to nurture a culture of community and a sense of ownership in our school by striving to provide more opportunities for all stakeholders to be actively involved in all facets of school life. This school year we will continue to provide opportunities for our students to develop their skills and talents through leadership roles and clubs during school hours. We will provide opportunities to support our students and celebrate their successes through daily enrichment activities, weekly advisory experiences, and quarterly grade level award ceremonies. The enrichment activities will assist students in developing their math and reading skills, the advisory  experiences will focus on developing leadership skills, addressing relevant social and emotional topics and building a rapport with all our students, and the quarterly grade level awards ceremonies will celebrate the successes of our students inside and outside of the school.  Parents and community members will be invited to participate in these activities and experiences as well as many more that have been shared with you through our yearly school calendar.

At Muller Road Middle, we will continue to present all students with multiple ways to learn the skills they need and deepen their understanding of the content they are taught through interactive notebooks, the use of textbooks, student planners, and Google sites and apps through the Chromebook. In an ever changing world it is important for students to understand how they learn best and exposure to multiple learning methods is important for them to grow and develop as individuals and scholars. Through the World Class Skills students will be taught how to take notes, study from notes and be more organized- whether it is on the Chromebooks or in the interactive notebooks. The emphasis will be on ensuring that students become more active participants in their learning. Class sets of textbooks will be available in most classes to serve as an extra resource to students

Beginning the 2016-2017 school year, Richland School District Two will begin using a 10-point grading scale for students in grades 2-12.


This school year we will require all students to wear IDs to ensure the effective management of daily school processes/procedures and the safety and security of all students.  All students will be issued IDs at no charge at the beginning of the school year. Temporary daily IDs will cost $1 and replacement IDs will cost $5.  More information regarding IDs is available in the school handbook.  

We will also offer lockers to all students who would like to use one at a yearly rental rate of $5 per locker. Lockers are not necessary as students are allowed to keep their book bags with them throughout the day. More information regarding lockers is available in the school handbook.


This school year we will be piloting a new scheduling approach for our sixth graders. We will have two schedules, a blue week schedule and a silver week schedule, with the same times for electives and lunch but the order of the core subjects will be flipped each week. The purpose of the scheduling change is to assist us in maximizing student engagement and achievement. These schedules have been included in your school calendar to assist in preparing for each week ahead. We have also included a school schedule in your packet so you can see the similarities and differences between the two schedules.


When you receive your child’s schedule, you will notice a PE/Health class listed this year.  The state of South Carolina by law requires yearly health and PE Instruction for grades 6-8.  If you have any questions, please contact me.

We believe that it takes a village to raise a child. As a result, we encourage all parents to become actively involved in all aspects of their child’s education. At Muller Road Middle, we have an open door policy and welcome all parents to visit whenever they can. We also encourage all parents to attend curriculum nights, school sporting events, cultural and arts events, and/or to become involved in the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) or the SIC (School Improvement Council). More information regarding the PTO and SIC is available in the school handbook.

We look forward to meeting with you many times this year and sharing the wonderful experiences your child has every day through our weekly school blog, community newspapers, and social media. Your input is important to us as it helps to ensure we are meeting the needs of all our students.

Please take note of the following important dates:

                   

August 2-4       Summer Stampede 8:00 am to noon (Open to all students- fee involved)

August 4          Meet the Muller Road Faculty and Staff 6pm

Tuesday, July 05 - Step-up to Sixth

StepUpToSix_Letter.pdfStepUpToSix_Letter.pdf

May 30, 2016


Dear Parents of Rising Sixth-Graders:


      As your fifth-grader finishes his or her years in elementary school, I have some exciting news to share with

you about the transition to middle school. On August 16, 2016, all sixth-graders will have the opportunity to attend the “Step-Up to Sixth” day at their

middle schools from 9 a.m. to noon. Transitioning to a new school can be a bit overwhelming for students.

“Step-Up to Sixth” day helps ease that transition by giving sixth-graders an opportunity to become familiar

with their new school before other students returned. 

     “Step-Up to Sixth” allows time for rising sixth-graders to acclimate to the middle school environment, meet

the staff, tour the campus, and learn about clubs and programs offered at his or her new school. Each

school will tailor the day to meet the needs of their students. Below is a sample of activities that your

student may participate in:


• Attend classes in a modified schedule and meet teachers

• Meet with administrators and counselors

• Spend time getting to know new classmates

• Experience what it is like to eat lunch in a middle-school cafeteria (Lunch will be provided free of charge.)

• Get answers to their questions about middle school

• Participate in team-building activities


     If your child rides the bus to school, he or she will have the opportunity to ride their new middle school bus

to school that day. Our Transportation Department will use the information you provide, through the

online registration process, to update bus routes for the 2016-2017 school year, which will be posted online

later this summer. If you have not already completed the online registration process, please do so by June

3. If you have questions about the online registration process, please contact the registrar at your child’s

current school.

     Our middle schools look forward to welcoming all rising sixth-graders to their new school families on

August 16, 2015, to help them confidently step up to middle school. I hope your family has an enjoyable

summer break.


Sincerely,


Dr. Debbie Hamm

Richland Two Superintendent
