Milbank Middle School

We are happy to help you!!
We are here to work hard for you!

updated: For the week of December 10-14, 2018

Parents: If your child is struggling in any of his or her classes, please demand that you see the work each night.  I suggest that you skim over the work.  Even if you don't totally understand everything, you should be able to tell whether or not the work is neat and complete.  I recommend looking at your child's student planner.  All students are encouraged to fill them out in "my" classroom.  Also, give me a call if you have any questions, comments, or concerns (432-5519).

Note: If you have missed school for any reason lately, it is extremely important that you catch up (get homework in, take quizzes/tests, get notes, etc.) as soon as possible.  If you want to know why, just ask me! :)


I used to require all students to fill out student planners at the beginning of each week. Let me know if you want to check the planner each night to see assignments.  I would be happy to make it a requirement again for your son or daughter.

Some people might look at English as unimportant; I would strongly disagree.  If you have the viewpoint that this isn't important and that's not important and this doesn't matter and that doesn't matter, then what's left?????  Answer: an uneducated human being.
