‘Imagine’ is this year’s theme at New Prague Middle School

By Tim Dittberner, Principal

New Prague Middle School

Welcome to a year of stretching your imagination at New Prague Middle School. Imagine is the theme at New Prague Middle School this year, with emphasis on the performing and visual arts.

You can expect to see the phrase Imagine often as we provide increased learning opportunities in the visual and performing arts. I believe that a strong commitment to the arts acts as a catalyst for increasing student motivation and achievement across the curriculum. This can be a powerful solution for helping educators reach a wide range of learners. The arts can also enhance the process of learning by developing a student’s integrated sensory, cognitive, emotional, and motor capacities. Schools that provide students with the means and the encouragement to explore these realms provide a better education. Excellence in education and excellence in the arts seem to go hand in hand.

All team names are related to the Imagine theme in some way. Our educational program includes seven core teaching/learning teams in addition to our allied arts teaching/learning team. The team names are Beethoven’s 8th, The da Vinci’s, The Beattles, The 7th Renaissance, Mindwaves, Chihulys, Team Snoopy and The Wonka’s.

The teams provide a warm learning environment that is student-centered and conducive to meeting the wide variety of needs of young people. It requires that the same teachers share the same students over the same flexible block of time in the same part of the building.

Our staff believes they can make a difference and feel confident that they work in a school that wants to improve and have students achieve at higher levels. Personally, I feel blessed to work at a school and live in a community that values a quality education.

Please feel free to call if you have any questions or concerns. The entire staff is looking forward to working with you!

Imagine … what we can do by working together!
