Paducah Middle

A Tradition of Excellence

Since it opened in 1980, Paducah Middle School has united students in the "Tornado" spirit -- in classroom and extracurricular activities.

To ease the transition from elementary school, sixth-graders are grouped in teams with fewer teachers and class changes. Seventh and eighth grades are also organized by teams for more flexibility in program planning of cross-curricular activities.

We offer a variety of pre-AP services for gifted students. They include honors classes, the Duke Talent Identification Program and extracurricular Governor's Cup, Math Counts and Odyssey of the Mind academic competitions.

Four "Encore" classes are offered on a nine-week rotation: art, physical education, technology and music.

Clark Beta Empty Bowls

Clark, Paducah Middle, and Tilghman Service Clubs Collaborate On Empty Bowls Project of Paducah

Junior Beta Club members from Clark Elementary School took part in the Empty Bowls Project of Paducah on February 6, glazing 35 bowls that will be given to the community-wide fundraising event. Clark Elementary’s seven year partnership with the Empty Bowls Project is the longest of any school in the region, with students glazing over 400 bowls to date. 

Junior Beta Club sponsor Sharon Carvell explained, “Empty Bowls is the most rewarding project we have participated in. The students love glazing the bowls and realize the importance of this project as it benefits Paducah's Community Kitchen.”     

The Empty Bowls Project is a grassroots movement to help end hunger in Paducah. Paducah joins over 400 communities around the country in a joint effort to address hunger through the Empty Bowls Project. Profits from the local event benefit Paducah’s Community Kitchen, where free hot meals are served five days a week to anyone in need. Last year, over 70,000 meals were served to Paducah’s hungry.
