My name is Beth Gibney and I am the new Curriculum Coordinator at the Milford Middle School. My name may sound familiar to some; as I was the Curriculum Coordinator of the Elementary Schools for a number of years prior and I have known some of your children since their first experiences in school in Kindergarten. I am very excited to be part of this team and to help move with the students through their next developmental stage to middle school, as I transition to this new position. My previous experience here in the Milford School District, both as Elementary Curriculum Coordinator and as District Wide Reading Specialist, has allowed me to see all aspects of curriculum and I believe will help us hone our transition programs from the elementary level to middle and then middle to high school level seamlessly. I look forward to working on the administrative team, with the teachers, students and community members to help provide the best middle school experience for your children, while helping them to become lifelong learners.

News from 8th Grade
Teams Liberty and Freedom have gotten off to a great start as our 8th graders enter their last year at MMS. This year, eighth grade students have much to look forward to, including, a trip to the Boott Cotton Mill at Lowell National Historical Park and the year-end trip to Canobie Lake Park. In the classroom, students will be challenged with a curriculum designed to prepare them for high school and a life of active citizenship. This fall we’ll be faced with solving algebraic equations, exploring the geography of the United States and looking at our colonial past, writing personal narratives, finding water on Zork, and dealing with a Raven that won’t go away!
Below are some tips for students to help them be successful this year
Assignments: Please check the team website for daily work
PowerSchool: Check PSchool on a regular basis. Parents and students can call the office if you don’t have login information.
Absences: If a student misses school, please have them check with their teachers for missing work Reading Book: Remember a silent reading book each day.
Supplies: Each class has required supplies, students should double check to make sure they come to class prepared.
Students should advocate for themselves: Each teacher has an email address. If students have a question, or problem with assignments, or grades, they should email us
We’re excited about this year and look forward to working with the eighth graders.
