Milbank Middle School

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

updated: For the week of January 22-26, 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 required 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 require all students to fill out student planners at the beginning of each week.  If you want to check the planner each night, you should see the assignments in there also.

Old School--Homecoming Week 2008

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.
