Mr. David Purins
Welcome to Poland Middle School! We have high expectations for each of you and will be pushing you to embrace a mindset of continuous growth both academically and personally. We expect a high level of personal responsibility, self-discipline, leadership, and a collective investment into the success and excellence of our school. We are resoundingly confident in, and committed to the individual academic, social, and emotional success of each of you. Poland Middle School is a very special place, and we are proud to be working alongside you to reach your goals!
We have outstanding teachers and support staff who will invest in your achievement of academic goals and the development of personal maturity and decision making. We also believe that a successful educational experience goes far beyond the classroom. All students have the opportunity to participate in many extracurricular activities, including student clubs and athletic teams throughout their years at our school. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities to challenge yourselves, build friendships, and use your gifts!
We also want to encourage each of you to embrace change in a positive and productive way. Each new year brings opportunities for success as well as challenges, and we are here to support you through it all! We also challenge you to be selective when choosing friends, consider your personal values as well as character, and always seek ways to add value to those around you!
This is your school, embrace it! Together, we will also embrace the responsibility of continuing the rich academic tradition of the Poland Schools. This is a vision that requires a shared effort among students, staff, administration, and parents. Collectively, let’s make it a great year!
