    Dear Parents and Guardians, 

    “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 

    -Nelson Mandela

    Students, parents, guardians, and staff welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  This website will prove to be a valuable source of communication to our community as it will provide school news and other important information for parents, guardians, and students.

    We at MacKinnon Middle School have a dedicated staff that will provide educational opportunities that will implement educational opportunities that will allow your child to achieve their highest potential.  We work diligently to ensure your child prospers at the middle school level both academically and socially. We provide an array of challenging programs and offer many extra-curricular clubs and sports teams for our students. We pride ourselves in giving our students a thorough education in all content areas.  At MacKinnon, we want each and every student to achieve and attain success on all curriculum and state assessments and provide a safe learning environment. Our goal is to prepare your child to be college and career ready.

    It is important to be an active participant in your child’s middle school career.  Communication is a key element to your child’s success.  Please support us as we want to see each and every student achieve high academic goals.  Make sure your child abides by all school rules and regulations.  It is important for your child to arrive on time for school, to dress appropriately for school, to be respectful of others, and to be prepared and ready to learn.  I thank you in advance and look forward to working with all of you in the 2018-2019 school year.

    Our Vision here at MacKinnon Middle School is that all students have the ability to learn. Our aim is to create climate and culture where all students are actively engaged through rigorous lessons with the inclusion of technology and differentiated instruction. Also, to create active citizens that consciously interact with the world around them and become a contributing part of society as want students to be able to think for themselves, engage in discovering global issues, and to develop educated positions on such.
