Message from the Principal/ Mensaje del Director

Message from the Principal:
Wow! What a great start to the school year! The first few days went very smoothly and there is a definite positive feeling on campus from both students and staff. We have had the opportunity to bring in many new teachers as well as administrators this year and I am excited for you to meet them at Back to School Night on September 1st. This week, your child received their school-issued AVID binder which included the Cougar Code, their agenda, a copy of the student handbook, and dividers for each class. AVID (Achievement Via Individual Determination) is an effective series of strategies that prepare students for high school, college, and beyond. One of those strategies is the use of a 3 inch binder with dividers. All students will use the school-issued binder during this initial implementation. We believe that by instituting this practice for all of our students, and by providing time each Thursday during Advisory to support it, we will better equip our students with the skills necessary to be successful in high school. Thank you for your support as we implement this system and for a great first few days of school!

Mensaje del Director:
¡Wow! Lo que es un gran comienzo para el año escolar! Los primeros días estuvieron muy bien y hay una sensación definida positiva en el campus de los estudiantes y el personal. Hemos tenido la oportunidad de contratar a muchos profesores nuevos, así como administradores para este año y estoy emocionado de que usted pueda conocerlos en la noche de Regreso a la escuela el 1 de septiembre. Esta semana, su hijo recibió su carpeta de AVID obsequiada por la escuela que incluye el Código Puma, su agenda, una copia del manual del estudiante, y separadores para cada clase. AVID (Logro Vía Determinación Individual) es una serie de estrategias eficaces que preparan a los estudiantes para la escuela secundaria, la universidad y más allá. Una de estas estrategias es el uso de una carpeta de 3 pulgadas con separadores. Todos los estudiantes usarán la carpeta obsequiada por la escuela durante esta implementación inicial. Creemos que mediante la institución de esta práctica para todos nuestros estudiantes, y proporcionando el tiempo cada jueves durante el apoyo Consultivo, vamos a preparar mejor a nuestros estudiantes con las habilidades necesarias para tener éxito en la escuela secundaria. Gracias por su apoyo al implementar este sistema y por los grandiosos primeros días de escuela!
