Welcome to Banks Trail Middle School, home of the Timberwolves! First and foremost, I want to welcome all our new families. We look forward to developing relationships with each and every one of you in the coming year. I also want to welcome back all our 7th and 8th grade families. We are excited to have you back at Banks Trail.
I am excited and honored to be part of your family’s journey through middle school. The faculty and staff of Banks Trail Middle School strive to provide the highest quality education possible to our students and over the years, have developed an extraordinary reputation for success, as individuals and as a school-community.
Our mission: Banks Trail strives to provide educational experiences in and outside of the classroom which empower all students to make a positive impact on their world. To this end, we work to incorporate research-based practices in teaching and learning, use technology appropriately to enhance the educational experience, and create a balanced middle-school experience that prepares our students to be well-rounded individuals.
We encourage you to volunteer at Banks Trail this year. Our amazing Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is looking for volunteers and we can always use more parents serving on the PTO. I know many of you want to give your child some space in middle school, but the research shows parent involvement is still a key indicator in a child’s success. Please consider this request.
Again, I welcome you to our school and invite you to contact our staff at any time if you need assistance. Parents are always welcome at Banks Trail Middle School. Have a great rest of your summer and enjoy your family. We look forward to seeing all of you in August. Take care and be safe.
Michael Pratt, Principal
