Welcome to London Middle School! Our primary goal at LMS is to provide students with a safe environment conducive to learning the skills necessary to be successful 21st century citizens, an environment rich in tools and strategies enhanced by technology, and positive behavior supports that will offer each and every student the opportunity to excel academically, behaviorally and culturally. The support of our families and community is critical to the achievement of this goal, and to that end we welcome open communication from our families and community regarding the issues that impact our students’ performance and safety.
This year we are implementing several initiatives whose purposes are to enhance the learning experience of our students.
First, effective with the 2013-14 school year and in conjunction with the implementation of the Common Core Standards in ELA and Mathematics and Revised Standards in Science and Social Studies, there will be an Honors ELA class at all three grade levels, and students will be assigned to mathematics classes by skill; specific reliable and valid data has been used to make these decisions.
Second, we invite you to the LMS Way, where we are building good citizens one pillar at a time. When you visit the building, you will notice street names for all hallways that describe the “pillars” that build positive character and good citizens.
Third, our master schedule now includes a flex period, during which time LMS students and staff will participate in building wide activities, including student self-reflecting on their strengths and weaknesses and setting goals, reading and writing, math hands on activities, wellness activities, and various club meetings, just to name a few.
I invite you to visit us, where I hope you will feel the immense positive energy that permeates the hallways and classrooms, energy that will be instrumental to realizing our goal that every student will make at least one year’s achievement and growth!
Yours in Education,
Adelle Faulkner, Principal
