Budding Meteorologist Encourages 7th Graders To Follow Their Dreams

WOOD TV 8 weather intern Blake Harms visited TK 7th grade career exploration students last week offering an inside look at his job and advice for students as they start thinking about careers. “The best advice I can give you is to learn something new every day,” said Harms. “I don’t know it all, but I can certainly learn something every day – even if it’s just a little thing. You never truly know it all.”
Eighth-grade team members look forward to competing at the state finals.

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!
