Mission Statement: Pacific Middle School expects academic achievement, celebrates diversity, and promotes self-discipline and community responsibility.


Dear Pacific Families,
Now that spring is now in full bloom and look we toward meeting our learning goals as the year ends, let’s take a moment to highlight some of the amazing opportunities in store for us.

First, I’d like to thank all the families that attended Student Led Conferences on April 14th and 15th.  We had over 300 families participate over a two day period of time. As I dropped in on classes and observed students leading their families from class to class, I was very impressed by their ability to accurately articulate where they are in their academic journey. Nice job!
Science Night was also a great success. Thank you to the many families who came to support our top notch educational opportunities in the sciences. Over 80 students presented wonderful demonstrations of scientific principles at 25 different booths. Our students and staff work hard to make this event a success and their efforts definitely showed this year.
April is filled with exciting events, most notably Multicultural Nigh on April 29th. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see our students and staff share important aspects of their culture. I guarantee you will be entertained and well fed. For this event, the Pacific Islander Club will be performing a number of traditional dances and there will be traditional food from many cultures to share for all. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity starting at 5:30.
Mark your calendars for the Spring Choir concert at the PAC on April 28th at 7 PM. Our choir works hard to prepare for this performance and is sure to impress. See you there!
Spring means that testing season is upon us. This year we have changed our schedule to make it less disruptive to the students’ school day. Math Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) is May 2ndthrough May 5th and the English Language Arts SBA runs from May 16th through the 19th. Help your student do their best and make sure they get a good Breakfast. Breakfast starts here at Pacific at 7:45.
As the month of April began, we visited each classroom to speak with students about what success looks like at Pacific. We were all impressed with how well our students are demonstrating what it means to be a Pacific student. At PACIFIC we strive to embed character education POSITIVE, ACCEPTING,COMPASSIONATE, INSPIRED, FOCUSED, showing INTEGRITY, and COURAGE. As a reminder to families, cell phones, earbuds, and other electronic devices are not to be seen or heard during the school day. Additionally, hats, visors and beanies need to be put away and invisible while on campus.
Thank you for your continued support.
