 ZMS Staff GoLeps



Dear ZMS students and parents,

On behalf of the staff at Zillah Middle School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year.  We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure all students can achieve academic Excellence Every Day!

Success, one child at a time – the effort to meet each child’s needs for growth socially, emotionally and academically – is ongoing and intentional. The staff at ZMS use a variety of assessments to gather data on the academic growth of our students and use that data to develop appropriate classroom and individualized instruction. Regular review and revision of our curriculum help us to ensure that we are delivering the best possible learning experience for our students. We have an integrated school-wide Character Education program called ON Track and use Character Education traits as key concepts during learning opportunities for social-emotional growth. Our teachers “know” their students, identifying strengths, challenges and passions while striving for a positive school experience and love of learning.

The ZMS staff value our students and families and as partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success! We look forward to working together this upcoming year. If you have any questions about our school and your child’s education, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are looking forward to a fantastic school year.


Tracy Savage



Leopard Pride is School-Wide!






Mission Statement

It is the mission of the ZMS community to provide a positive and safe learning environment

in which every student can achieve academic, social, and emotional growth.

Vision Statement

“Educational Excellence for Everyone”



Zillah Middle School is committed to providing all students with a quality educational experience that will assist them in future opportunities. Education is a cooperative effort and the responsibility of teachers, students, parents, and community. Our purpose is to assure learning experiences, which facilitate development of skills, competencies, and attitudes. These are fundamental to achieving personal satisfaction and growth as a responsible, contributing citizen. Our school attempts to develop a student's individuality and foster a positive self-concept based upon the value of his/her efforts and recognition of his/her achievement. The education process will also respect the uniqueness of each individual and teach all students to respect themselves and others.


  • To increase student performance in the classroom by examining methods, curriculum, objectives, and standards.
  • To improve the communication process among teachers, parents, and students by using standard grading practices, progress reports, conferences, and calls to parents.
  • To focus on the success of students, the staff will use positive reinforcement whenever possible by providing meaningful learning opportunities for the students.
  • To develop consistent, clear building policies for all students by the development and clarification of handbook policies, which will provide equitable standards for everyone.
  • To provide a challenging, positive, fun experience to all students in 7th and 8th grade.
  • To prepare students for the transition to the next level of learning.
  • To make learning fun and challenging.








Dear ZMS Families,


We have launched the ON-TRACK Program at ZMS and your child will receive a bracelet with a Stretch-N-Reveal™ message reminding them to stay ON-TRACK.


This tool is for home and school and we hope you will encourage your student to wear it as much as possible.  Working together at home and school doubly impacts the progress of learning and implementing the necessary components to building a positive culture and learning skills necessary to making great life choices.


We cannot stress enough that with teamwork, collaboration, and acceptance students feel accepted and safe which gives them the confidence to take accountability for their choices. There is no limit to the importance these principles play in the overall learning and success of our students. This program is designed to incorporate self-respect, respect for others, and combines training our students about the importance of developing courage to take personal responsibility to assist them in making wise choices.


The acronym TRACK stands for the following:

Tolerance I accept others for who they are even if they look or believe different than me.

Respect — I will show respect for myself, for others, for property and for the environment.


¨I am responsible for my own actions and successes.

¨I will not make excuses or blame others.

¨I will exercise self-control and I will own my attitude.



¨I will have the courage to stay ON TRACK and do what is right, even when it is difficult.

¨By setting goals, I will accomplish great things. 

¨I will have the courage to get started, press on and finish well!

Kindness I will treat others the way I want to be treated.


Students are encouraged to make the ON-TRACK Pledge to work on applying these standards. Students are learning these principles with ON-TRACKmoments throughout the school year which teach how to live out these values. The students will wear the Stretch-N-Reveal™ bands as tactile reminders, a tool encouraging them to consider their actions and ON-TRACK for success.


             Thank you for your partnership in your student's education,

Tracy Savage, ZMS Principal                 Tammy Lewis, ZMS Assistant Principal
