Principal's Message

Mr. Brown, Principal, College Park MS

Dear Bulldog Families, Friends and Partners,

Parents, we remind students every day to “Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be Responsible.”  We ask that you assist us in reinforcing these three key areas of our Positive Behavior Support system at College Park Middle School.  Several reward trips and celebrations are planned and students with referrals or discipline infractions will not be allowed to participate.

Parents, encourage your child to turn in assignments on time and study for all upcoming tests.  Additionally, please update your contact information when it changes.  From time to time we may need to get in contact with you and ask that you keep your records updated. 

Some of our eighth grade students received application packets for the Valencia College Horizon Scholars Program.   This wonderful opportunity provides mentoring and academic support throughout high school and funding for college!  Please review the information and get started on your student’s application as soon as possible.   If you were contacted on the Connect-Ed message that your student received a packet and would like more information or assistance with completing the application please contact Ms. Jill Jay, 8th Grade Guidance Counselor.

This week is Spirit Week!  Students and staff are encouraged to wear attire that is within the guidelines of the OCPS Student Code of Conduct.  Please refer to the email that follows this message for more information on Spirit Week.

Parents, please remind your child to bring their laptop to school every day, important updates are sent to student computers while they are on our school Wi-Fi.  Students will be participating in several exams throughout the month of December.  More information on the testing schedule is included the email that follows this message. 

I thank all parents for supporting our focus on academics and for limiting distractions on campus.  Cell phones are permitted on campus but are to be turned off and put away at all times throughout the school day.  Parents, please refrain from texting or calling your child during the day and route all messages through the front office.  Confiscated phones can be retrieved by a parent or legal guardian.  Additionally, I appreciate all parents who continue to check their students’ dress code prior to their arrival on campus.  We do not permit hoodies, sagging pants, midriffs showing, slides, head coverings (unless for religious purposes), or ripped jeans that are revealing above the finger tips or that cause a distraction.  Inappropriate items (ex. Slides, hoodies) will be confiscated.

Parents, I also remind you to monitor your students’ social media and continue to collaborate with us.  In an age of social media, we know all too well that children can make poor choices when utilizing their cell phones or other electronic devices.  Please remind your student to act responsibly while utilizing social media.

All voice messages are accompanied by an identical email to all addresses on file.  Additional important information is included in the email to follow this message. 

If ever in need of additional information, please call our main offices at 407-245-1800.  We are happy to answer any questions you may have or clarify information for you.

Thank you for supporting College Park Middle School and thank you for the job you do each day with your child.  Together we will educate, accelerate and lead children to success.  Have a wonderful Sunday evening and remember, At College Park Middle School, you are loved and there is nothing you can do about it!
