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.

Childhood Obesity Prevention

PAHC Seeks K-8 Parent Participation in Survey on Childhood Obesity Prevention

Purchase Area Health Connections (PAHC) has developed a Childhood Obesity Prevention Action Team (COPAT) and is seeking K-8 parent participation in a survey on Childhood Obesity Prevention. The PAHC has ten $50 gift cards to give away in a drawing for those that participate in the survey and fill out the voluntary information.
 
You can see the survey here.
 
The COPAT team is comprised of members from schools across the region, health clinics, community college, university, hospitals, public health, parks and recreation and other non-profit organizations.  COPAT is working to develop a childhood obesity toolkit that can be used in our community to address the childhood obesity epidemic. 

      = Due to the high rate of obesity, this generation may be the first in U.S. history to not outlive their parents.

      = Students who are obese are more likely than non-obese children to have lower academic scores, lower self-esteem, and more hospital stays.

      = If current U.S. trends continue, more than 57 percent of today’s youth will be obese at age 35.

Survey participation is voluntary.  Since we are not collecting individually identifiable data, it has been determined that survey participation is exempt from IRB standards.  Aggregated results of this and other surveys will be shared broadly to inform our project and community.  Should you have any questions about this survey, please contact our data analyst, Kaitlyn Krolikowski, at 270-444-9625 x191.  Thanks again for your participation!

PMS Robotics Table Contest

Paducah Middle Hosts Lego Robotics Contest

Used with permission.
 
Two of Paducah's elementary schools' Lego robotics coding teams faced off Friday in a competition at Paducah Middle School, with the winning team taking a practice table that was built by members of the PMS Project-Based Learning class called "Introduction to Innovation."

"The students came up with a project that was interesting to them that would help the community," said class instructor Tim Franklin. "They discovered that all three of our elementary schools that feed into Paducah Middle have a Lego robotics team, but none of the Lego robotics teams had a practice table.

"(The PMS students) built this table following the (specifications) that they found online for Lego robotics competitions. Then, they organized this unofficial Lego competition. This is a way of introducing students to different ideas that, hopefully, will get them more interested in the Innovation Hub that is to come."
