Virtual Reality Opens the World to Students

Madilyn Vandenboss and Memphis Miranda-Wells didn’t feel like they were in their Thornapple Kellogg Middle School classroom any longer. Instead, they were transported to a Japanese garden filled with vivid pink and white cherry blossoms all around and above them.
Crickets will have a Sponge Bob-type home in this habitat.

Students Build Ultimate Cricket Habitats

What do grass, twigs, dirt, Monster trucks, the Cookie Monster, basketball courts and Kardashian photos have in common? They’re all parts of cricket habitats created by TK seventh-grade science students.

A message from Middle School Principal Kelli Arnold-Wegner

Thornapple Kellogg Middle School
Welcome to Thornapple Kellogg Middle School!
Our middle school has grades 6, 7 and 8 and is filled with enthusiasm for learning and positive behaviors. Each grade level has a separate wing for core subjects with a common wing for our numerous exploratory classes such as choir, band, art, Spanish and 21st Century Skills. Our staff strives to ensure academic, physical, social and emotional growth and development for all students in a secure, creative and challenging environment. We work to develop positive self-images for all students so they can become responsible, lifelong learners. Our staff uses the PBIS program to help students develop core values for themselves and others and we teach and reward students for positive behavior. 
We are glad you're here! We welcome volunteer parent and community involvement so please stop in to see us soon!
