Welcome to BUCK NATION!
Dear Nathanael Greene Middle School Families,
Welcome to the 2022 – 2023 school year! I am thrilled to welcome our students and staff back to school. It has been a busy summer at Nathanael Greene Middle School for those students who attended our district wide summer learning programs. We hope that you were able to relax and make special memories with your friends and families. Now it is time to look forward to a wonderful new school year!
Our incredible staff of educators have been preparing classrooms for the new school year. We are excited to welcome many new staff members to our NGMS- Welcome to Buck Nation! We recognize that students may be feeling anxious with the start of a new school year and we will continue to place a strong emphasis on social emotional learning while focusing on building classroom community.
Nathanael Greene Middle School is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our beautiful school and have high expectations for each and every student. Our students are kind, compassionate, and resilient. Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. Our Nathanael Greene Middle School motto this year is “Be the Dream … Whatever it takes”. As a component of that we will stress the importance of Forward Thinking, Fostering Passions, Developing Responsible Citizens, and Preparing for Tomorrow’s Opportunities”.
Our Instructional Priorities have not changed, they are: Clear, Measurable, Goals; Organized Lessons and Continuous Feedback. Our Cultural Priorities remain the same also. They are: Ensuring a Positive Learning Environment. Ensuring that Actions Are Meaningful for ALL Abilities and Cultures and lastly having Active Engagement.
These concepts will continue to guide our mission to provide a rigorous and joyful inclusive school environment. Partnering with families will be crucial this year as we seek to increase positive family engagement here at Greene. We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district and school website for important information. We value our partnership with families as we navigate this year together. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions or concerns. Be the Dream…. Whatever it Takes #Greene Greatness.
Yours in the Work,
Dr. R. D. Sermons
