Principal's Message

Summer Is Going Great
Posted on 07/25/2018

Hello Bobcat Families,

I hope that everyone has had some time to rest, relax, and unwind this summer! Our custodial team has done an amazing job this summer getting everything ready for our students to return. We are looking forward to seeing our Bobcats and kicking off another great school year!

We wanted to let all of our Bobcats and Bobcat families know that important MBMS back to school information will be sent home in the near future. Any forms that are not mailed home can be located on the Margaret Buerkle Middle School website. When you go to the MSD website, click on schools, and then on Buerkle Middle, and that will take you directly to our website.

If you have any questions throughout the remainder of the summer, I encourage you to check our website, and/or call the main office.

This week’s highlighted education articles…

Have a wonderful summer,

Jim Kern, Principal

Michelle Wood, Assistant Principal
