    Dear North Middle School Parents, Students, Family, and Friends,

    WOW!  It’s hard to believe we are in the second week of through January and two weeks away from the second semester.  The first four months at NMS have been filled with fantastic activities centered upon student learning. 

    Our sixth graders have adjusted well to the middle school setting, and over the course of three days and two nights in November, they had the opportunity to interact with each other and engage in activities at Greenkill that provided them with lifelong memories. They are now hitting their stride as they evolve into true middle-schoolers! J

    Our seventh and eighth graders are enjoying their elevated status as the upperclassmen of North Middle. They have welcomed the challenges of the new curricula, and their involvement in all that NMS has to offer, e.g. clubs, activities, and sports, has allowed them to develop a stronger ownership of NMS – academically, socially, and emotionally.

    Please know that the entire staff of NMS remains committed to ensuring its students’ success as they navigate the often tumultuous world of middle school.

    I look forward to continuing the great work taking place in our NMS learning community, and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

    Be well,

    Gerald C. Cozine
