Message from the Principal

Matt Burggraf
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being part of the North Union MS family. Our commitment at NUMS is to provide a safe, welcoming environment where all students can succeed. We want to create twenty-first century learners who will become the leaders of tomorrow. We have had a great first three days and our goal is to encourage and engage each student every day.

At NUMS this year we serve approximately 362 students in grades 6, 7, & 8 where all staff support the “RARE” characteristics of each student.


As part of the Wildcat Pride we ask students to uphold these characteristic at school, home and in the community.

One element of our strategic plan is to build community connections in learning. The Richwood area supports our school in countless ways and if you would like to volunteer, sponsor an activity or be a guest speaker please contact us at 740.943.2369. We are always in need of more community partners to help support our excellent teaching staff.

Part of a healthy child is the sense of belonging and we encourage students to get involved in our clubs, sports and activities. Students have a wide array of activities from band, FCA and yearbook to competitive activities such as football, track or vex robotics.

In conclusion, I want to wish you the best this school year and we look forward to the great accomplishments of our student body!

If I can be of any assistance feel free to contact me any time and know that my door is always open. I am honored to serve you and your children at North Union Middle School.

GO Wildcats!

Educational Yours,

Matt Burggraf
