A Message From Our Principal

Dear Middle School Families,

With spring upon us, it’s a good feeling knowing we are close to wrapping up a successful school year. Every year, I am always amazed at how fast time has passed, but at the same time there is a feeling of exhaustion. Our staff has put in countless hours on and off the clock to help prepare our students for the future. Our students have responded, giving us their best effort, learning through all the experiences brought before them. To all, I want to say great job!

With the summer months upon us, it is important that our students get a break from school. While that rest is important, we don’t want students to regress. That is why we are purchasing a book for each student to participate in our summer reading program. Research has proven that reading is one of the best ways to keep students progressing. It doesn’t matter which subject a student is reading. Even though each student will receive a book, we realize that is not enough for the entire summer. Students should be reading no less than 30 minutes a day, or at least six books during the summer. Please check out our library times in the library section of this Bulldog News to help your student check out more books to read this summer.

If you need anything during the summer months, our office is open June 1 through July 18, Monday through Thursday, from 8:00 a.m. until noon. After July 18, we will return to our normal hours of Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. If you have questions or need something, please give us call. I hope you all have a wonderful summer spending time with your families making memories. We look forward to seeing you in the fall.

Sincerely,

Nick Kintz

WEB Leaders

Attention middle school parents, WEB Leaders is coming back to University Middle School. WEB is a great way for students to get connected, learn leadership, and help our school. WEB is available for any current 7th grader who would like to fill out an application. If your student has an interest, please have him/her see Mr. Lee or Mrs. Njos (counselors).

There will be some events in the spring and summer to plan for and once those dates are available, we will pass those on to interested students.
