Poquoson Middle School serves a total population of almost 500 students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Our high expectations are carried out throughout the building within our staff and students. Poquoson Middle School promotes a climate conducive to success based on safety, accountability, and a close partnership with parents and the community. A typical day at Poquoson Middle School consists of seven periods. In addition to Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and Health and Physical Education, students may be exposed to reading and math support, foreign language (French and Spanish), Technology Education, Band, Chorus, Drama, and Art.
Poquoson Middle School Modernization Project Update
Beginning next week, a group of teachers will meet with the Poquoson Middle School Modernization Project architects to provide suggestions for possible design work for the middle school renovation. Poquoson Middle School committee members represent all three grade levels, and include core and elective teachers, an ITRT, and a special education teacher.
PMS Modernization Project Committee Members
Brett Higginbotham (Band Teacher)
Nicole Sneddon (Math 7th and 8th grade)
Deborah Blackstock (6th grade Social Studies)
Additionally, during the input process next week, other faculty and staff members will also be interviewed to provide insights and feedback to the architects. These interviews will include teachers from a variety of content areas, other staff members, students, and the athletic director (AD) from the high school. The AD is important to this process because some of the design work may support high school athletic competitions held on the PMS Field.
Opportunities for community input will be publicized in the coming weeks. Until that time, we encourage the community to use Let’s Talk to submit comments or questions. All input to Let’s Talk will be reviewed by division staff and shared with the design team.
