Every day throughout our experiences in middle schools we are inspired by those very special people who impact others in meaningful ways. These remarkable people come in the form of students, teachers, teams, administrators, educational assistants, custodians, media specialists, and essentially anyone you can imagine! The Minnesota Middle School Association wants to recognize these caring individuals for "Daring to Care"!
