Principal’s Corner

Natomas Middle School Principal Marcel Baker

Welcome to the Mighty Panther Nation! I am Marcel Baker, proud principal of Natomas Middle School. I love, love, love the diversity of our school and the Natomas community, which is why I purchased a home here. So, if you see me in the neighborhood, stop and say hello. I would like to meet as many of you as possible. 

At Natomas Middle School, we follow what we call “The Panther Way”. Living the Panther Way means to Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be a Problem Solver. We are excited to keep building a positive culture as we focus on kindness towards one another. One of our priorities is to take care of ourselves while we take care of each other. t will be important for us to have patience with one another and treat each other with kindness and respect.

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, Natomas Middle School focuses on helping our scholars develop a love for learning. The IB framework helps support our scholars, teachers, and families to ensure academic success and develop global learners. This puts our scholars on a path to success in high school and beyond. 

Our goal is to make Natomas Middle School a great school for all scholars. In order for this to happen, we need your help and support. We have many ways for parents to get involved; participate in the PTSA, ELAC (English Learners Advisory Council), or SSC (School Site Council). We want and need the support of parents/guardians. Please look for our weekly announcements and opportunities to participate in events.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (916) 567-5540. You can also check out our Digital Backpack on our school website NMS Digital Backpack

In the spirit of service,
Principal Baker
