A Message from Our Principal

Welcome to our school community. I am so proud to be the Principal of Combs Middle School! Throughout this school year, our students will work to learn as much as possible while striving to be caring and respectful to others.

As they focus on their learning, students are centering on three important words; record, retain, and recall.

  • Record information in their notes accurately and completely so that it may be understood
  • Retain information in their long-term memory by incorporating the strategies of being prepared for class, completing/producing high quality work, participating in class, asking questions, studying daily, and seeking help when needed
  • Recall information from their brain to be used in various settings in order to demonstrate the ability to apply, comprehend, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate what has been learned

To reinforce the importance of their responsibilities with their learning, students are reflecting on eight areas:

  • Knowledge of Content - I understand the content I am learning in this class.
  • Prepared for Class - I bring the needed materials for class.
  • Takes Notes - I accurately and completely take notes.
  • Asks Questions - I ask questions when a lack of understanding occurs.
  • Completes Homework - I complete homework on time.
  • Attends Tutoring/Seeks Help - I attend tutoring or seek help when I need it.
  • Attends Regularly - I attend class regularly and arrive to class on time.
  • Appropriate Work Ethic/Attitude/Behavior - I display appropriate work ethic, attitude, and behavior.

As students and teachers work together, our school community continues to strive to live the words of our school pledge, “Today I will do more than I have to do; I will treat others as I want to be treated, and I will become a better person.” Here’s to the hopes, beliefs, dedication, and hard work for another successful year!
