School Climate Survey (en espanol)

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

We need your help to determine what is working and what can be improved for parents and students at Moran Middle School. Please click here to complete an important school climate survey. There are no right or wrong answers. This survey is anonymous and your feedback important to us.  Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.


The School Climate Committee

 Students of the Month


Here are some of the criteria that students must exhibit to be chosen as: “Student of the Month”:

These students, among other things, display a positive attitude toward themselves, teachers, peers, and learning.  They work to their full potential.  They show or have shown improvement in grades with steady academic progress.  They show or have shown dramatic improvement in behavior or attitude toward staff, peers and/ or learning.  They treat peers in a respectful manner and with kindness.  These students represent Moran Middle School in a positive manner and we are proud of their contributions and example. 

The Moran Student's of the Month are sponsored by Alyssa's.  Thank you for your generosity.
