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.

Twelve Paducah Middle students participated in after school classes, taught by PM Visual Arts Instructor Terri Sauer, where they explored various processes and media used in printmaking. The students were then paired with a working artist who collaborated in a final printmaking project.

Foreign Language Possibilities!
There is a possibility that we will be offering not only Spanish again this year for 8th graders at Paducah Middle, but also French. If you have a child who will be an 8th grader at Paducah Middle during the 16-17 school year, and you are interested in having him or her take Spanish OR French (not both), please email me, and let me know ASAP (allison.hobbs@paducah.kyschools.us). Please indicate your child’s name and which foreign language he or she would be interested in. There are issues that may prevent your child from taking the class, even if interested, such as choir, band, test scores, grades, etc., so please understand there is no guarantee of placement.
