Hello. I would like to welcome you to Marietta Middle School and briefly share a bit about our school. As the instructional leader, I am very excited about the direction we are moving. Specifically, I believe that as an MYP school (Middle Years Program) our emphasis on educating the entire child will expose students to rich learning experiences. Our focus on modeling positive relationships will equip students to interact effectively with others from a variety of cultures and viewpoints. We offer students STEM curriculum (science, technology, engineering, math), modern languages (French and Spanish), and enriched fine arts courses (art, band, chorus and drama). Our transition to academic teams will enable us to offer more interdisciplinary learning experiences. Each team consists of an ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies teacher who share the same students. In addition to the academic benefits, teams also facilitate communication amongst teachers that enables them to provide the support that our students need.
I also recognize that educating our students requires collaboration between the school and home. As the parent, you have the greatest impact on your child. We want to work with you to develop, nurture and support your student as he/she matures. I am always eager to foster partnerships with parents and other community members that will benefit our students.
On behalf of the faculty and staff, I want to invite you to join us in what we believe will be an exciting and productive year!
Dr. Dayton Hibbs
