Dear Parents and Guardians,
If your child has not registered or attended school, please make sure to contact the Pontiac Middle school. There is space for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students, and we are very proud of our school and community. Regular attendance is vital to student’s success in school. The student, who is frequently absent, misses social interaction and direct instruction from his or her teachers even though written work can be made up. Any day or hour absent is a missed learning opportunity. Attendance is a key predictor of academic achievement.
Any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact our school counselor, Mr. Davis, at (248) 451-8020, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will have a successful school year!
Si su hijo/a no se ha registrado o asistido la escuela, por favor asegúrese de comunicarse con la escuela Pontiac Middle School. Hay espacio para estudiantes del sexto, séptimo y octavo grado, y estamos muy orgullosos de nuestra escuela y comunidad. La asistencia regular es vital para el éxito de los estudiantes en la escuela. El estudiante, que frecuentemente está ausente, pierde la interacción social y la instrucción directa de sus maestros, aunque el trabajo escrito se puede hacer. Cualquier día u hora ausente es una oportunidad de aprendizaje perdida. La asistencia es la clave del logro académico.
Cualquier pregunta o inquietud, no dude en ponerse en contacto con nuestro consejero escolar, el Sr. Davis, en (248) 451-8020, email: email@example.com. ¡Vamos a tener un año escolar exitoso!

At PMS the students are taught reading, language arts, science, social studies, and math. Students participate in the elective wheel which rotates them through different elective courses which includes physical education, foreign language, band, art, math games, and computers. Ninety-three percent of the students participate in the free/reduced lunch program.
The PMS library/media center had a make-over by the Piston’s Corporation which donated several hundred books and a variety of learning materials for the middle school. The PMS motto echoes the Pontiac School District’s: “Excellence, Efficiency and Equity is an affirmation of our commitment to our students parents, and citizens in the city of Pontiac.
