37th Annual NYSMSA Middle-Level Conference


The New York State Middle School Association and the Saratoga Springs School District invite you to the 37th Annual New York State Middle School Association Conference. The theme of “Middle-Level - A World of Opportunities “ addresses the many facets of a developmentally-responsive middle-level program.

 The conference promises something for everyone. From the pre-conference offerings, to the practitioner workshops, to the “Breakfast with Champions” on Saturday, this not-to-miss event is sure to help you grow professionally and network with middle-level minds from the State. This is also a great team-building opportunity. It provides something for everyone and will allow groups to explore themes and have a focus.

Saratoga Springs is BEAUTIFUL in the fall. The region has so much to offer…so start making your plans, and we will see you at the conference!
