I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for such a wonderful start to our 2014-15 school year. Our newest members to the PMMS family, the 5th graders, have settled in nicely. At the heart of a successful school is the teacher. I am very fortunate to be able to walk into all of our classrooms on a frequent basis to see all of the wonderful instruction taking place. I also see teachers and students who truly enjoy being in an environment that promotes learning. A wise person once told me, "Children see right through people who are not genuine." This statement is so true. Children work hard and prosper for a teacher that cares. The students at PMMS are clearly happy children. As I make my way through the building to visit classrooms, the rapport between students and teacher is amazing. Our teachers love working with students and want them to do their very best. Students are willing to ask questions and share responses due to the fact that they know their teachers care. The learning environment in our building will enable our students to make great strides in their education. I want to thank all the teachers and staff at PMMS for being dedicated, caring educators who genuinely love working with children.
