Important Notice to Parents/Guardians of Our 8th Grade Students
All 8th grade students are required to have a completed Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) before the end of this school year. The high school he or she attends will use this IGP to help make decisions regarding course selection, career choices and other matters. Completion of the IGP requires about a 30 minute meeting with the student, a parent(s), and the school’s guidance counselor. Please call Mr. Brooks at 207-3078 or Mr. Memminger at 207-3010 to arrange a day and time to complete this IGP. All students will receive a certificate for a Domino’s Pizza once their IGP has been completed!

What People Are Saying About Jerry Zucker Middle School
"I am so happy that I sent my child to your school. I have never met teachers that care so much about their students. Zucker classes can be tough and it makes my boy better every day. I sent you a boy and soon you'll be sending him to high school ready to be a successful man. Thank you." ZMS Parent 1-7-2013
"Mr. Hilden is awesome. How do I explain it....he gives us hard work. Adult
work. But still treats us like we're kids. So we can make mistakes and not feel
bad and try again...and in the end we've done "real" work...adult work." 8th grade Honors student in Mr. Hilden's ELA class
"My son goes to Zucker and I think it is such a great school. I am proud of the way he is learning and the care of teachers and staff. I want to thank every one." ZMS Parent 12-16-2011
