FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

KEVIN WELLEN

 

 

   
 

Welcome to the Menahga School website. I hope you have a pleasant experience, both on the website and in the district. Our district is composed of three schools, all housed under one roof giving us a true sense of community. We have an elementary hosting preschool (at its own site) and kindergarten through fourth grade in our primary school. With class sizes between 18 and 22, we believe we are able to effectively meet the needs of all students. The middle school program serves the unique needs of grades 6-8 as they transition from the elementary to senior high. Our high school focuses on our students in grades 9-12 to insure they are career and college ready. We have embraced many opportunities for all students including college classes offered at the high school, laptops for all high school students, iPads for 5th through 8th graders and a classroom set of iPads to share between every two teachers in grades K-4. In the past three years we have updated our social studies, reading, and science curriculums, and we have embraced student-centered learning activities at all grade levels. Our fine arts and extra-curricular programs continue to stretch their limits. An example is that about 45% of all high school students are in band and/or choir. I encourage you to visit the links on this website to learn more about the offerings and activities in each school. 

 

Our staff takes great pride in creating a welcoming environment for our community and providing exciting opportunities for all students. With all of these wonderful opportunities, our enrollment has grown by more than 35% in just seven years. We now have over 1000 students and have had to close open enrollment. We are currently only able to accept students who reside in our district. If you are interested in one of the few spots we may have available, you must apply before January 15th to be considered for next year.

 

Our goal is to keep the community apprised of what is happening at the school. You will find a calendar of events on the home page. Parents automatically receive email and phone messages alerting them of important changes to the school schedule including weather delays or school closing. Skyward is our student management system from which we draw the alert contact information. Skyward is also a place where you can have instant access to student information such as attendance for your children. You can view the current academic status in their classes for your students in grades 5-12,. This means it is important to keep your information current in our system. If you need to update it please do so through the “Skyward” tab on our website. 

 

Have a Great Day!
