38th Annual NYSMSA Middle-Level Conference


The New York State Middle School Association and the Vernon-Verona-Sherrill School District invite you to the 38th Annual New York State Middle School Association Conference to be held on October 18-20, 2018. The theme of “Middle-Level - The Next Generation“ is a nod to the NYS Next Generation Learning Standards and 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 across New York State. It is also a great team-building opportunity. It provides something for everyone and will allow groups to explore themes and have a focus.

Central New York 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!
