About Our School

Michael Grimmer Middle School opened its door in 1974.

At Grimmer we believe it is important to work together for the benefit of our students and are here to assist them and their parents.  Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, guidance counselor, or the administration if you have questions or need some advice.  We also have a part-time Home School Facilitator who may assist you with questions or problems.

The student agenda is an excellent resource for students and parents.  Please refer to the guidelines for behavior in our student  agenda and the Lake Central School Corporation Rules of Conduct.  It is our goal to provide a school environment that is safe and orderly.  Additionally, attendance at school is very important and is mandated by Indiana State Statute.

We encourage you to become involved in your child’s education. We have a supportive Parent Teacher Organization, and all parents are encouraged to become a member the organization.
