Message from the Principal
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at the Carl I. Bergerson Middle School where we believe in “Achievement, Character, and Success for Life ...ACS”.
As a middle school, our purpose is to instill a sense of belonging and provide a safe environment where students can develop the skills to be effective learners beyond middle school. The middle school staff is fully committed to providing opportunities for all of our children to be successful and therefore, have designed building goals that will focus on literacy, technology and communication, along with building safety. Our goals help us to connect with each and every student and ensure that we are providing them with the resources, academic support and a safe environment where they can become a prosperous, life-long learner.
Connecting students with school is proven to play an essential role in their success. Taking advantage of academic supports and extracurricular activities such as athletics, theater or other after school clubs, can assist students in making those vital connections to school. Please encourage your child to take advantage of the many resources we have available. We also encourage parents to stay connected with their child’s education. Below are some ideas on how you might do that:
- Ask your child each day about a positive experience they had at school.
- Communicate on a regular basis with teachers via email, phone or parent-teacher conferences.
- Attend school events with your child.
- Monitor grades on a regular basis and talk with your child about their successes and any obstacles they might have.
We look forward to a great school year and, as always, we encourage you to contact us with your thoughts, questions or concerns you may have throughout the year.
Mr. Bradley Pritchard, Principal
Carl I. Bergerson Middle School
