Clubs and activities include:
MPA Parent Talks
The Middlesex Parent Association (also known as the MPA) represents ALL parents of Middlesex Middle School students and meets periodically to foster a strong line of communication between parents and Middlesex faculty and staff.   
We have decided to call these meetings “Parent Talks,” and as the parent of an MMS student, you are encouraged to come and be a part of them! 
Parent Talks are more than just meetings; they include timely, meaningful topics presented by school administrators and/or outside speakers. 
Our next Parent Talk is this Wednesday, 9/25 at 9:15am in MMS Auditorium
(Come at 9am for coffee!)
Vaping Presentation + Meet our New School Resource Officer (SRO)
Principal Somers will introduce the new School Resource Officer (SRO) Officer Stuart Schwengerer, and Dennis Bludnicki from Liberation Programs will make a presentation on vaping and how to discuss the dangers with your child.
