Welcome to the Lagunitas Middle School
Located in the beautiful San Geronimo Valley of Marin County, California, the Lagunitas Middle School is a public school with grades 6-8. The Middle School Program is a semi-departmentalized program. Students rotate through several different teachers to receive a core curriculum in language arts, math, science and social studies. A variety of enrichment activities are infused into the students’ daily schedule including art, drama, foreign language, music and technology. A “Social Skills” class is included for one trimester for all students in each year of Middle School as part of the enrichment activities. Emphasis is placed on individuals experiencing success by developing self-confidence and heightened sense of self-esteem.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, I took a new look at the man, his place in history,
and what we can learn from him now, almost 49 years after his assassination. Martin Luther King, Jr.
was instrumental in the passage of both the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that outlawed discrimination based
on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that prohibits racial
discrimination in voting.
Quote of the Week: “We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when
multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” (Howard Zinn, 1922 – 2010)
