Hello Yellow Jackets!
Welcome to McCants Middle School for the 2019-20 school year! Our core business is TEACHING and LEARNING and the primary emphasis of our work is YOUR student. McCants prides itself on being a long standing tradition in the Anderson community. The dedication to excellence in academics, arts and athletics shows as we are motivating each student to succeed to their fullest potential! We want each child’s educational experience to be built around what their strengths are and how we can help them excel to be the best they can be.
Our goal is to be the school that works to give many opportunities for our students both academically and through related activities. As we travel through this year, we hope that you take every opportunity to be a part of the culture of McCants. Attend a sporting event! Participate in Jacket Pride! Show the community you love McCants! (I know you will!) Be sure to check our website often, follow social media accounts about our school and read over our weekly school newsletter highlighting upcoming events. Staying in constant communication with your student’s teachers allows us to be a team for their educational journey. Coming together to form a great partnership is what it is all about and will make middle school years successful!
Research still tells us that the one thing that has the greatest impact on student achievement is the teacher in the classroom. We are blessed that our teachers are not only very knowledgeable about the content that they are teaching, but are also outstanding at delivering that content through quality teaching strategies and with much heart! Teachers and staff members are here for you but most importantly your student. We encourage you to visit the school often, email with questions and call if you need us!
If we can do anything for you, our school office hours will be from 7:45-3:45 Monday-Friday. Please feel free to contact either Mr. Scott Sams, Mrs. Stephanie Radford, Mrs. Cameron McElhannon or me whenever we can assist you.
