Principal's Message

From the Desk of Dr. Mack

Welcome to Appling Middle School, home of the Wildcats. I am ecstatic that you have become a part of our family. It is my honor as principal to lead this school and take care of some of the most precious cargo – your children. We look forward to the second year of the Bartlett City School District. I know that this year will be even better than last. At Appling we believe in: E3 – Excellence – Everybody – Everyday.

Our goal at Appling is to prepare our students for future success by providing them with a strong academic foundation. We want to continue building on previous successes so that we equip students with the best education possible. This previous year, 7 of the top 10 graduates at Bartlett High School were former Appling students. The Valedictorian at Bolton High School was a former Appling student. We are proud of our strong academic traditions. These middle school years will be both challenging and rewarding. This year we will push our students academically so that we maximize their potential and bring the best out of them. We want out students to excel both academically and socially. To that end we have an array of extracurricular activities for the students. Whether our students are actors, artists, athletes, musicians, or vocalist, there is an activity for them to become involved with over the course of their three years of middle school.

We realize that we cannot grow successful students without the help of our parents. We encourage you to become actively involved and support the work of our parent organization. They need you, we need you, but most importantly, your child needs you. We would love for you to be an active supporter of all things Appling.

My hope for this year is academic success and growth for our students, responsiveness to the needs of our students, and open home-school communication. My door is always open for you to stop by to share your concerns/opinions. I look forward to meeting each of you and working with your family during your students’ time at Appling. Remember, once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat.
