Glasgow Middle School Welcome


I would like to welcome students, parents, and staff to the upcoming 2016-17 school year. The middle school staff is committed to providing a safe, educational  experience for all students. We strive to provide an environment that is conducive to the middle level learner and take pride in our school.

I commend our janitors, Mike Molzhon and Nick Ciafardone, for all their hard work preparing our building and grounds to welcome back students and teachers.  They have done another great job this summer. 

Our staff would like to welcome Elizabeth Hoeksema to the team. Hoeksema will be serving students grades 6-7 in the area of Math. Please see below the complete list of staff at the Middle School.

The office at the Middle School will be open beginning on Aug. 15 at 8:00 a.m. Feel free to stop in to take care of lunch money, activity tickets, update immunization records, or to ask questions. Please refer to the district website,, for other general information and follow the Glasgow Middle School Facebook page @GlasgowMiddleSchool for announcements concerning the middle school.

New this year will be an orientation day for all incoming sixth grade students as well as new students to the District in grade 7 or 8. Letters will be mailed to households Aug. 10 with details. The orientation day will be Aug. 24 from 8:10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Our goal is to help make  a smooth transition to the middle school concept. Many of the staff will be present helping lead the activities planned. We strongly encourage attendance!

Parents and students can expect welcome back letters and schedules in the mail the week of Aug. 22. The office encourages inquiry phone calls if you have not received a letter by Aug. 24. All students and parents are invited to our Open House, Aug. 30 from 4-6 p.m. The first day of school for students is Aug. 31. Our doors are open to students for breakfast at 7:45 a.m. School begins at 8:10 a.m.  and ends at 3:29 p.m..

I am looking forward to another great year at the middle school and working to positively impact students and parents. Please enjoy the remainder of summer, and we will see everyone Aug. 31!  If you have any questions call the office at 228-8268.
