    Dear McLoughlin Families and Friends, 

    It’s a great year to be a Bulldog! McLoughlin Middle School is known as a place where all students can find a sense of belonging. Our staff works hard to ensure that our students and families have positive learning and growing experiences during their time here. We are ready to connect with you to help with anything, and everything!

    The last fifteen months have been challenging, especially for young people in our community. We are committed to hands-on, minds-on learning in our classrooms. Our teachers build deep relationships with our students and prioritize student engagement during each and every lesson. Because of those deep connections, teachers are able to build lessons that challenge each student.

    Beyond the classroom, students are able to explore and dive into a variety of activities in order to figure out what their interests are and to develop new skills. We have healthy athletic programs where students can learn about healthy competition, the importance of teamwork and develop character traits that are transferable beyond sports. Our afterschool program offers structured social time for students to engage in new hobbies and build strong peer connections.

    Whether your student is returning for 7th grade or 8th grade, or they are new to our Bulldog Family, we are beyond excited to welcome them, and you! We’re looking forward to greeting you all at registration week this August.
