  • McCormick Families, 

    I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2020-2021 school year. This is a year like no other and our lives have definitely been changed. We have had to adapt to a new way of living and together I know we will get through this.

    I am thrilled to start my fourth year at MMS. We are continuing to build a great school and are striving for academic excellence. As we begin a new year, I wanted to update you on what changes will take place as well as our goals for the coming year.


    • We will open our doors at 7:30 am each day. We will open up earlier when there is inclement weather.
    • Students will be required to sign up for the after school late bus. We will teach students how to do this. Teachers will communicate with you if your child needs to stay after school, but your child will be responsible to sign themselves up for the bus.
    • We will be implementing restorative discipline on our campus. Restorative discipline focuses on repairing relationships with students who have conflicts. It also focuses on repairing relationships with students and teachers.


    • We will continue to increase our student achievement on the STAAR test.
    • We will increase our student attendance. Our goal is 96.5%.
    • We will decrease our referrals by 10%.

    There is no doubt with teamwork, dedication, communication and commitment, we will reach our goals this year. I want you to know that my administration, teachers/staff, and I are 100% committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and positive environment for you and your child. We, as the McCormick community, will continue to strive to make MMS the best school in the state of Texas! 

    Thank you,
