Welcome to Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School's website!

 I am thrilled to welcome you back to school for the 2013-14 school year at Martin Luther King Jr. Middles School!  The faculty and staff are busy preparing the school and classrooms for an exciting year of learning and growth. This year at M. L. King Middle, we will encourage all children to embrace the values of the 3 R’s "Respect, Responsibility and Ready to Learn" in their daily choices and interactions.  Through our commitment to our students and a practiced sense of integrity, we know that this will be a special year of developmental growth and academic achievement for all students.

 Please keep in mind that the staff and faculty of M. L. King Jr. Middle School are eager and willing to work with your student to help them grow socially and academically.  We believe in the power of success. Student success is the goal of every staff member at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School.  We believe with your support and our dedication to high quality, research-based best practices, every student will learn to their full potential.  We ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day, encouraging him/her to read for pleasure at least 30 minutes every night, monitoring homework and progress, and asking your child to share what they learned at school each day.

 In closing, I would like to encourage all parents to make a special effort to join with our faculty to improve the channels of communication between M. L. King Jr. Middle and home.  Please make a special effort to attend our  PTA meeting  at 6:00 p.m. on February 11th.

 
Please remember it takes a cohesive, well-tuned team to be successful. Let’s  continue to make this the best year ever by working  together for our students!  Please free  to contact me by calling the school at 404-802-5400 or  by email at  pwbrown@atlanta.k12.ga.us.

 

 

For the children,

 

Paul W. Brown, Principal
