Monongahela Middle School

Welcome to Monongahela Middle School

Monongahela Middle School is a comprehensive middle school designed to meet the needs of its diverse student body of over 640 students. Originally built in 1964, MMS has been renovated and expanded in 1967, 2001, and 2003 in order to update its facilities.

Monongahela Middle School is proud of its rich heritage. Even its name reflects its history. Chief Monongahela was a revered chief of a mighty tribe of the Susquehanna Indians. Monongahela was the name of one of the first schools to operate in Deptford. Also, the Monongahela Brook ran through the area near our school. The school and its students have flourished, echoing Monongahela’s rich historical background.

1st Interactive Mural at MMS! Inspired by artist Kelsey Montague and created by Mrs. Almeyda and our MMS students & staff

Inspiration & Creativity from our Art teacher:

Wings. A symbol of hope, faith, protection. “With a strong set of wings there’s nothing out of your reach”. Around age 9, my brother sent me a picture from college  of a heart with wings soaring above a city that he drew.  I immediately hung it in my room and was fascinated with the image. It’s a symbol I’ve always drawn from that day forward and one that has comforted me through the loss of loved ones. Wings have long been associated with freedom and flight. A favorite quote of mine is “ What if I fall? Oh but my darling, What if you fly!”… this year I was asked by a colleague to create a project for the whole school to participate in. Inspired by the artwork of international street artist Kelsey Montague I decided to do our own version of #whatliftsyou. Each student /staff member received a feather which they decorated with inspiring quotes and symbols that described them. With the help of my students I created this mural of wings to remind us that we are there to lift each other up, to make good decisions , and to be ready to fly”. 600+ students/staff took part in our first ever interactive/collaborative mural which was hung today in the main hallway of Monongahela Middle School. When I became an artist I set out to make my mark in this world and with the help of my amazing students I am pursuing my dream. I find it no coincidence it was hung today during the holiday season when we are all looking for a little hope, reminiscing about loved ones, and setting good intentions for the new year. These wings were inspired by so many and hope to serve as an inspiration to all who view them. #finallyearnedmywings #kelseymontague #whatliftsyou #artteachergoals #whatifyoufly
