• Tim Steffensen - Principal

    Todd Foster - Assistant Principal

    On behalf of the faculty and staff, we welcome you to MMS. MMS has an outstanding reputation of being family friendly and student focused. We work hard to ensure that your child will succeed and want to come to MMS. The 2 principals that you and your child will be working with are Tim Steffensen and Todd Foster. Tim will be starting his 32nd year in education, with the last 22 years in administration and the last 4 years at MMS, while Todd will be starting his 31st year in education, with 13 years in administration and the last 2 years at MMS. We bring a broad variety of experiences with us to MMS and we care a lot about kids. It is our vision to establish a culture in which students and staff want to come to MMS every day. We also have many opportunities for kids to explore in addition to the Core classes while at MMS, including: Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Art, Technology classes, athletic activities, student council, Honors music classes, FCCLA, Friends of Rachel Club, etc.


    Our motto last year that we plan to carry forth with this year is that we want MMS students to “Do the Right Thing.” We all know that middle school is a difficult time in a child’s life. Our goal is to build skills within your child so that he/she “does the right thing” when adults are not around. I think that we all have heard that “it takes a village to raise a child,” therefore, we are counting on teaming up with you to ensure that your child sees success while at MMS.


    It is with great enthusiasm that we prepare for another for another year at MMS. If we can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact Tim Steffensen at 696-4504 or Tim.Steffensen@k12.sd.us, OR Todd Foster at 696-4505 or Todd.Foster@k12.sd.us. We are here to serve you!
