Middle School of Poplarville

A Note from Our Principal

Welcome to Middle School of Poplarville (MSP)!  The faculty and staff  are incredibly excited to begin a new year.  As we embark on this journey through middle school, we pledge to you, our students and parents, to provide engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with a plethora of special events and activities, along with extracurricular clubs and athletic teams to encourage our Hornets to be involved and stay connected.

The mission of MSP is “Making Success Possible”.  Daily, we strive to help every child reach his/her potential, but we can’t do it alone.  Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at MSP.  Communication is vital, and it plays an integral role in each student’s success.

We are looking forward to a positive and productive year together.  We extend a special year long invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want, we need, and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education.  Your active participation is key to the success of your child during his/her middle school years.

Again, we welcome you to Hornet Nation and to our wonderful school.  It is, indeed, a place where we make success possible each day for every student!
