TRANSITION INFORMATION FOR 5TH GRADE PARENTS
Welcome to Maranacook Community Middle School. We are so excited to have your child joining us next school year! We hope you find this Virtual Transition Fair Packet, and the links included in it, helpful as your fifth grader transitions into middle school. The faculty at MCMS is proud of our school and our students. Over the past 20 years, we have developed a middle school program that is focused on providing young adolescents in the community an outstanding education.
We are fortunate to be part of a community that values an educational experience that is responsive to the unique learning needs of this age group. The mission and philosophy of our school keeps us focused on this goal. Our mission is to create a culture that is safe, respectful, inclusive, tolerant and supportive, so that we are all empowered to: self-advocate, live passionately and creatively, empathize with others, form positive relationships, be our best self and gain skills and knowledge needed to navigate an ever-changing world.
We are very honored to be recognized nationally as an exemplary middle school by the National Middle School Association, The New England League of Middle Schools. Some of the highlights of our school include:
*An integrative curriculum that is based on what students want to know about themselves and the world.
*A well-established advisor/advisee program that supports the social and emotional growth of the students.
*A world language program that exposes all students to a language of their choice; French, German or Spanish.
*A fully developed Unified Arts program that includes physical education, health, music, and art.
*Special education programs that promote inclusionary practices.
*Integration of technology throughout the curriculum through one to one computer access for all students.
Team options and programs that support the diverse learning needs of all students. Strong transition activities between schools.
*Comprehensive health services, including access to mental health support, offered within the school.
We place a strong emphasis on literacy and math by supporting teachers as they provide opportunities for all students to be able to grow. If you are interested in learning more about how to be involved in the school, please contact us through our email system or by calling 685-3128.
