This vision called for staffing additions, the development of a new bell schedule, changes to instructional programming, facility upgrades, and the addition of exciting new resources throughout all content areas.

Spanish classes at Pitman Middle School welcomed our first Special Speaker of the year-Valued Community Member and Staff Member Mrs. Erica Morton. Mrs. Morton shared with the class how her Spanish (from Spain) heritage and her husband’s Mexican heritage influence their celebration of Día de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead.Mrs. Morton shared with the class photos of her extended family’s traditional celebration. We also saw and learned about traditional foods eaten on Día de los Muertos, including a wonderful Pozole (Red Pork Stew) which was made for us by Mrs. Morton. We were joined by invited guests Mr. Ward’s and Mr. Chiaro’s classes.
Operation Beautiful has provided countless opportunities for student growth over the past few years. The idea is to promote positivity by eliminating negative self talk. We encourage students and staff to participate in any way they can.
The goal is to hold two meetings per month. One meeting is usually a guest speaker and the other is an activity hosted by a school staff member. The meeting topic/activity is anything that you feel will promote positive school culture within our community. We are already planning on having yoga, dance, art, mindfulness, nutritionist, and sport specialists visit us this year. Some examples of teacher led activities will be girls bathroom decorating, vision boards, science, as well as affirmation through literacy.
