Principal's Message 2024-2025

Students, Staff, Parents/Guardians and Community Members,

I hope this message finds you refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for a new year. We are anxiously awaiting students' return on August 6th. Our dedicated staff is excited for the new year and the opportunity to provide an array of engaging and challenging learning experiences for students which will put them in a confident position to be agents of positive change in our world. La Paz Middle School is a learning community that is committed to helping all students grow. We will continue to focus on our vision and mission:

La Paz Middle School will be an exemplary school committed to the advancement of all students. 
La Paz Middle School will provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment where students will thrive and become empathetic, critical, creative thinkers. 

We will work towards our vision and mission by keeping in mind the crucial role that failure and mistakes play in the ongoing process of improvement and strive to model that truth. We will do our utmost to celebrate successes and help each other and students out through the opposite with empathy and support. 
 In order to accomplish this we ask students to practice the following principles:
  • Attend school daily with a positive mindset
  • Complete daily classwork and homework
  • Read daily to develop a love for reading and improve literacy skills
  • Be respectful, responsible and safe at all times.

I encourage all students to participate in our school community by becoming involved in the
school activities provided through the various clubs and sports. I want you to show your
Panther pride and most importantly be an outstanding school citizen. I am looking forward to
getting to know you and your children. I want to personally invite parents/guardians, and
community members to get involved both here at La Paz Middle School and in partnership with your child’s educational experiences. Working in partnership we will make 2024-2025 a great school year. Go Panthers!
