Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! Another amazing school year is upon us and with it comes plans for an exciting year full of enriched academic curriculum and activities. Please know that my staff and I are once again ready to begin the fall semester with renewed energy. As we continue to move forward, please know that we believe in a collaborative process shared by students, parents, and faculty, so that all students achieve academic success.
As you may recall, last year we participated in the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation process. During this process, we created three specific goals for our school: 1) 100% English Language Arts and Mathematics Proficiency 2) Reclassification of English Language Learners and 3) 100% Graduation. We have implemented processes and systems to insure we meet these goals; however, there is still work to be done.
I look forward to continuing to work with each of you in order to ensure a safe and successful school year and am dedicated to providing a rich educational experience for all of our students. My Faculty will continue to provide a rigorous, standards-based instructional program by teaching to the California Common Core Standards. I firmly believe that these standards, along with self-discipline and personal experiences, will encourage lifelong success. Your child will be expected to follow the school's discipline policy that ensures a positive educational climate for all learners. In order to maximize student achievement, all students are expected to adhere to our expected behaviors: Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. Additionally, I'd like to remind you how important daily attendance is to your student's success. Please schedule family vacations during the one-week break in November, the three weeks at winter, or the one-week in spring.
