Dear Families:

What a great 2013-14 school year it was. This year we had three goals; Academics, Behavior and Attendance.

Academics: We continued to implement new programs to improve student achievement including the AVID program. Additionally, we began the California Junior Scholastic Federation (CJSF) which recognizes students with excellent achievement.

Behavior: This was the first year we implemented our Positive Behavior Intervention System. Weekly drawings were held to recognize students who demonstrated good behavior and citizenship. Additionally, we continued our partnership with the City of Fontana, and offered basketball, volleyball and soccer to our students. In order to participate, students had to have good grades and behavior.

Attendance: Our attendance percentage continues to be above 97% which was the highest for middle schools in Fontana. Our ASB and WEB continue to implement programs during the day that encourage students to be present and help to create a safe campus.

As we move towards the 20114-15 school year, we will continue to focus on attendance, behavior and achievement. Here is some important information to remember for the upcoming school year.

July 24th, Office: The office opens for new enrollments, drops, etc.

July 29th, Orientation: This is mandatory for 7th graders with the last name A-L. It begins at 7:30am and concludes at 3:00 pm. Lunch will be provided. As a reminder, parents are NOT allowed during the morning session but may return for the afternoon session beginning at 12:00 pm. If students are not able to make it to the morning session, they will need to wait for the first day of school to pick up their schedule, books and purchase their PE clothes. 7th grade students who have not taken their T-Dap shots will have the opportunity to get their shots at orientation, but a parent must be present. Students who do not have their T-Dap shots will NOT receive their schedules and will be excluded from school.

July 30th, Orientation: This is mandatory for 7th graders with the last name M-Z. It begins at 7:30am and concludes at 3:00 pm. Lunch will be provided. As a reminder, parents are NOT allowed during the morning session but may return for the afternoon session beginning at 12:00 pm. If students are not able to make it to the morning session, they will need to wait for the first day of school to pick up their schedule, books and purchase their PE clothes. 7th grade students who have not taken their T-Dap shots will have the opportunity to get their shots at orientation, but a parent must be present. Students who do not have their T-Dap shots will NOT receive their schedules and will be excluded from school.

July 31st, Orientation: This is for 8th graders.

9:00am-11:00am: Last Names A-L
1:00pm-3:00pm Last Names M-Z

August 7th, First Day of School: School begins at 7:25.

The 2013-14 year was a great year, but we expect the 2014-15 to be even better as we strive to make it Mission Possible.

Respectfully,   

Mr. Santiago
