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!
