Message from the Coakley Middle School Principal

August 31, 2018   

Dear Coakley Middle School Community,

Welcome Back!  I hope everyone had a relaxing summer with time to rejuvenate for an exciting new school year.  Here at the Coakley Middle School, we have been working hard to get both the building and staff ready for the new year.

This year at Coakley, we have several areas of focus.  Our 2018-2019 district focus is on improving social emotional learning for all students.  What this entails is working with students beyond the academic areas. Achievement and skill development are important, but there are additional achievements to be made and skills to be developed that don't fall into a major subject area.  We will be working to help students develop a growth mindset, set achievable goals, navigate challenging peer relationships, and create and sustain a positive school culture.

We will also be working towards incorporating technology into lessons as we get closer to a 1:1 technology setting.  This will allow for more instruction tailored to the individual needs of students that include a high level of engagement.  

Finally, we continue to tweak our schedule to make Mustang Block a more educational, meaningful time period for students and to consider how we can incorporate student choice into the middle school day.

I am incredibly excited to be back for my second year and look forward to working with students, parents, and staff to make this school year one of the best yet!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.


Dr. Margo Fraczek
