Message From The Principal

Dear Students and Families,

 Welcome to the 2018-19 school year.  I have been a member of the Buena Vista City School family for 38 years and I am extremely excited for the opportunity to serve our "Blues family"  as principal of Parry McCluer Middle School.  

 It is with great pleasure that I announce that PMMS is FULLY ACCREDITED! This accomplishment was a direct result of the hard work of the PMMS staff and students, the support of our parents, and a creative RTI schedule. We are so appreciative of the effort and teamwork of the students, teachers, and parents. We need to continue to maintain our accreditation through hard work and perseverance. 

I am very excited for our students to be able to venture into so many new and exciting courses and happenings this year.  All students now have PE everyday and many have the opportunity to participate in our "Fit for Life" exploratory as we strive to encourage a healthy lifestyle for our students.  Also, we are offering new and exciting classes such as digital media, community cafe,  and independent living where students are involved in daily hands on experiences.  The faculty and staff are thrilled that our students have many, many opportunities to do new and different things and can  truly get excited about coming to PMMS. 

 I encourage all parents to be active in our Parent Advisory Committee. We have many activities planned for this school year and I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year with any and all of our endeavors. Our goal is to  provide a safe and productive learning environment that will enable ALL students to excel in all facets of their life. 

 If you have any questions throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact us. 


Debbie Gilbert,



 GO Blue!!!
