Digital Star Lab Planetarium Comes to MS

Middle School 7th grade students sat under the stars inside a large portable dome inflated right in their own gymnasium. The dome, called the Digital Star Lab, is part of Kalamazoo's Air Zoo. The unique experience gave students a chance to see stars, moons, planets, and the galaxy up close.

Battle of the Buildings Returns Nov. 13

TKMS students share stories about the importance of water with McFall first graders.

MS Students Share Water Lesson at McFall

Water, water everywhere! In Michigan we are surrounded by water with an abundance of natural lakes, streams and ponds so sometimes it’s hard to realize there are people in the world who don’t have quick and easy access to safe water.  Where does our water come from and how does it safely get into our homes and schools and businesses?  What happens if our water supply is no longer safe? What happens if we don’t have access to good water?

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 a "TrueSuccess" 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!
