Dear Students:

The staff, faculty, and administration welcome you to Mattoon Middle School! We believe that your experience at MMS will provide a solid foundation for your continued growth and success.  We encourage you to use the handbook as a guide toward achieving that goal.

A handbook is provided for you and your family in order to acquaint everyone with the rules, regulations, procedures, and other relevant information necessary for the orderly functioning of the school.  It has been structured to help promote student progress as well as the modeling of appropriate school governance.  In addition, the handbook provides for the psychological and physical safety of all students through appropriate rules and regulations.

MMS incorporates the middle school concepts of flexible scheduling, team teaching and learning, and cross-curricular instruction.  The faculty and administration believe that this approach will help you learn and grow to your fullest potential.

You and your parents are encouraged to read and study the handbook.  Your advisory teacher will expect you to bring it to class the first two weeks of school.  Write your name on the front cover for safe-keeping.  Periodically, you may need to refer to the handbook to answer questions.  If clarification is needed or other questions arise, please contact any teacher, counselor, or administrator.  We are eager to help you.

Mattoon Middle School is your school.  Therefore, it is in your best interest to take pride in your school and show respect for fellow students, staff, teachers, administrators, and most of all, yourself.  MMS is a place where you will find people from different socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.  It is important to gain an understanding and appreciation of these differences.

Your three-year career here will be what you decide to make of it.  The opportunity is available for all to have an exciting, positive, and rewarding experience.  Let us all direct our energy toward seizing that opportunity!

Educationally yours,

Mr. Jeremie R. Smith, Principal
Mr. Chad Arnold, Assistant Principal
