Greetings Unity Braxton Family!

We are hard at work preparing for the 2021-22 school year at Unity Braxton Middle School!

I am excited that we will be offering in-person learning for all of our students Monday - Friday next school year! For a few of our rising 8th graders, many of our rising 7th graders and all of our rising 6th graders, this will be the first time that they have been in our school building!

All of our students and staff did an amazing job in keeping the focus on student learning last school year. As the focus shifts towards the return towards the traditional school environment, we realize that through the skills we have developed, the understanding of our available technology, and the additional resources that have been made available to us that education will be forever different moving forward.

Our theme for the upcoming year will be "Restoring Our Foundations and Building Our Future at UBMS!" Students, faculty and staff will be focused on helping students readjust to in-person learning, continue to strengthen and develop social-emotional skills, and further enhance our efforts to provide learning opportunities, assessment and feedback that is laser focused on the standards and learning targets.

The school year begins for students on August 23rd!

As we get closer to the start of the school year we will continue to share information with you about classes, schedules and transportation. We also complete a monthly newsletter for parents, staff and students called the Jaguar Journal. Copies of the Jaguar Journal for each month during the 2020-21 school year are posted on our webpage. Each month we will continue to add a new message and important information for our UBMS family!

I look forward to partnering with you and working together to ensure your child receives a quality education in a supportive environment. I encourage you to take on an active role throughout every year of your child's middle school experience. Please contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns. My door is always open, and I appreciate and value your feedback! I can't wait to get started!

We hope that all of Jaguar Nation has a fantastic summer and we look forward to seeing you all in August!

Go Jaguars!
