Mr. Jonathon Keller
Hey everyone I'am so excited to start my second year here at MMS. This is my 5th year teaching and all of it in PBI. I love teaching, connecting with students and families, and having a fun time.
I am delighted to have your student in my class this year. As their case manager I will build a sense of community and belonging, work with your student on organizational skills and meet with them regarding academic and personal goals.
Education is a team effort between students, teachers and parents. I look forward to working with you to help ensure your student has a great year at Meridian Middle School. I anticipate a year full of academic and personal growth for your student.
There are several forms of communication that I want to make you aware of.
- Email:If you ever have any questions or concerns for any of your student's teachers, please feel free to email them or you can email me, and I will be glad to help.
- Phone Calls/Voice Mail:If you would prefer to speak to a teacher, please call the school and the front office will direct you to the teacher's voice mail. They will return the call on their prep hour or after school.
- Power School:Power School will enable you to see their current grades for each class. Clicking on a specific grade will give you the details for that class. Clicking on an assignment name will give you the assignment details. Clicking on the assignment grade will give an explanation for the grade.
Your student will start each day with Advisory. This time will be dedicated to work on social skills. During this time, we will work on skills such as impulse control, anxiety, anger, perspective taking, decision making, and along with many other things. Your student will also attend a PBI class. This is time set aside for them to reflect on their behavior, get organized, complete homework, get help from a teacher, make up quizzes and tests, and review their current grades.
Our mission at Meridian Middle School is to educate all students, providing them with opportunities to gain skills that will enable them to be valuable and responsible members of the world they live in. I am excited about what this year has in store for your student and the many successes they will experience.
If you ever have any questions or concerns during the year, please feel free to contact me. I am here for you and your student. I am excited about the great things we will accomplish together!
