Please congratulate the members of the Pelion Middle School Orchestra program who competed at our State Performance Assessment today at West Wood High School.

These students earned the highest ratings possible (Superior) from all judges for both performing groups, and were the only school in Lexington School district 1 to accomplish this and the only school in the region to accomplish it during today’s set of competing groups.
Last year many of these same students earned the first Superior ranking in Pelion Middle School Orchestra history, and this year they continue to set a legacy of excellence and distinction.
Please let them know how proud you are of their dedication, hard work, and performance today. They are truly exceptional ambassadors of the work we do here as a whole at Pelion Middle. Many teachers commented on how well-behaved, disciplined, respectful and polite our students were. They are putting out positive images of what we do here!
Thank you all for your support of the arts!

 Pelion Middle School’s Beliefs

Students’ learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school. Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process. Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs. The family, school, and community working together are crucial to the development and well being of the student. The success of our community and nation depends upon respect and appreciation for our country, its democratic institutions and our individual differences. Quality education is worth the time, effort, and money. All individuals are accountable for the choices they make and understanding that with each choice comes responsibilities and consequences. Positive attitudes encourage a positive learning environment. Learning is a life-long process that promotes and improves the quality of life and is essential for continuous growth.

 PELION MIDDLE SCHOOL MISSION

The mission of Pelion Middle School—where caring people, academics, the arts and athletics connect—is to prepare students for successful transition to high school as they work towards becoming productive 21st century graduates.  We will accomplish this mission while serving as a center for community learning.

 Therefore, we will:

  • Provide opportunities to develop talents, interests, and skills through choices from a comprehensive system of 21st Century learning experiences in the arts, academics, and athletics.

  • Ensure the rigor of academic core courses to improve the success of all students.

  • Provide opportunities for students/staff to develop and practice leadership and citizenship skills.

  • Use data to drive decision-making.

  • Use innovative, standards-based instructional strategies to promote active student engagement, personalize learning, and ensure that our students are learning sophisticated 21st century skills, knowledge, and attitudes.

  • Develop a culture of caring, support, and responsibility among all stakeholders.

  • Engage family and community in the school environment through a variety of learning and participatory activities to promote lifelong learning.

VISION

Our students will leave Pelion Middle School as self-directed, creative, collaborative, caring, and plurilingual learners who are on  a path to flourish in high school and beyond in a global, competitive 21st century.

 Therefore:

  • Our schools serve as a center for community learning.

  • Our students are engaged in self-directed, collaborative, high quality learning experiences that will prepare them for high school curriculum and continued life-long learning.

  • Our school culture fosters the development of leadership and citizenship skills.

  • All stakeholders accept responsibility for the learning of our students.

  • Each student receives the personal support necessary to reach his or her goals through a caring environment that advocates for students and works to eliminate barriers to learning.
