Rosario Gomez, Ed.D., Principal
Kenneth Bencomo, Assistant Principal

It is with great pleasure to be back at Alder Middle School to serve as your Principal for the 2016-2017 school year. I am looking forward to meeting our new students and families and reconnecting with our Alder families. I am eager and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of all students at Alder. We will accomplish this goal by setting high academic expectations and providing supportive systems for all students. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, it is our goal at Alder Middle School that all students will be college and career ready.

This year we will continue to work with our teachers and students on the California Common Core Standards. We are now in full implementation of the CCCS which will allow our students to acquire a quality education and prepare students for college and career readiness. We are committed to providing the best learning environment for all students.

I ask you to be a part of your child’s education by supporting our school. Your involvement, partnership and support are greatly appreciated as we work to build and maintain our programs. Participation in our parent meetings, school events, and activities will make a difference. I encourage you to be a part of the Alder family and a part of another successful year!

It is our desire at Alder to promote an educational experience that is exemplary and assures every student succeed to the highest academic level of proficiency. Every staff member at Alder is dedicated to academic and social excellence. We believe strongly that each student will learn in an environment that is safe, orderly, positive and productive with teachers who hold high expectations for all students, both behaviorally and academically.

The Parent-Student Handbook is intended to present information, rules, regulations and procedures that are reflective of Fontana Unified School District and Board Policy. It also contains other information necessary for the success of your child. Parents are asked to read the enclosed material and follow the procedures as outlined, to support the maintenance of a safe and orderly learning environment for all students. It is suggested that the handbook be kept as a reference guide as questions arise during the school year.

In order for students to be successful at Alder, it is critical they attend school every day, all day, unless they are too ill to attend. The daily instruction is essential to building students’ understanding and competency on grade level standards. Instruction that is missed, even for a short period of time, is very difficult to make up. Students who are often absent, tardy or leave early are at a definite disadvantage. We ask you in advance for your cooperation in getting students here on time and not taking them out early unless it is an absolute emergency.

As principal, I will spend most of the instructional day inside the classrooms, monitoring the teaching and learning that is taking place. If you have any questions or concerns, I encourage you to contact me through the front office either before or after class time. If I am unavailable at any moment, please leave a detailed message with the office staff and a number where I can reach you. I look forward to working with the entire school community to provide the highest quality service to the families of Alder Middle School.

By working together we will be successful in having every child meet or exceed grade level standards. I look forward to a great year. I am confident we will have an outstanding school year by working with all our Alder families to continue the tradition of academic excellence!

Go Alder Falcons!!!

Alder Middle School Principal ​​​

Es con gran placer regresar a la Escuela Intermedia Alder para servir como su directora para el año escolar 2016-2017. Deseo conocer a nuestros nuevos estudiantes y sus familias y volver a conectar con nuestras familias de Alder. Estoy ansiosa y profundamente comprometida de hacer una diferencia positiva en la vida de todos los estudiantes de Alder. Vamos a lograr esta meta por medio de el establecimiento de altas expectativas académicas y proveyendo sistemas de apoyo para todos los estudiantes. Vamos a llegar a nuestro objetivo de la Escuela Intermedia Alder que todos los estudiantes estén listos para la universidad y una carrera, dirigiéndose a la cultura escolar, estableciendo altos estándares para el desempeño de los maestros, el aumento de las metas académicas para todos los estudiantes y la participación de la comunidad.

Este año vamos a seguir trabajando con nuestros maestros y estudiantes sobre los Estándares Comunes de California. Ahora estamos en plena aplicación de los Estándares Comunes de California que permitirán que nuestros estudiantes adquieran una educación de calidad y van a preparar a los estudiantes para la universidad y una carrera. Estamos comprometidos a proveer el mejor ambiente de aprendizaje para todos los estudiantes. Les pido que sean parte de la educación de su hijo/a por medio del apoyo a nuestra escuela. La participación, la colaboración y el apoyo de los padres son muy apreciados mientras trabajamos para construir y mantener nuestros programas. La participación en nuestras reuniones de padres, eventos escolares, y actividades hará una diferencia. ¡Los animo a ser parte de la familia de Alder y de otro año exitoso!

Es nuestro deseo promover una experiencia educativa que es ejemplar y asegura a cada estudiante a tener éxito a nivel académico más alto. Cada miembro del equipo de Alder se dedica a la excelencia académica y social. Creemos firmemente que cada estudiante va aprender en un ambiente que es seguro, ordenado , positivo y productivo con maestros que tienen altas expectativas para todos los estudiantes, tanto de comportamiento y académico.

Este Manual para Padres y Estudiantes presenta información, normas, reglamentos y procedimientos, que son un reflejo de la póliza del Distrito Escolar Unificado de Fontana. También contiene otros elementos necesarios para el éxito de su hijo/a. Se les pide a los padres que lean el material y sigan los procedimientos como se indica, para apoyar el mantenimiento de un ambiente de aprendizaje seguro y ordenado para todos los estudiantes. Se sugiere que mantengan el manual como una guía de referencia a medida que surjan preguntas durante el año escolar.

Para que los estudiantes tengan éxito en Alder, es muy importante que asistan a la escuela todos los días y que se queden todo el día, a menos que estén muy enfermos para asistir. La instrucción diaria es esencial para construir la comprensión y la competencia de los estudiantes en los estándares de nivel de grado. Instrucción que se pierde , aunque sea por un corto período de tiempo, es muy difícil de compensar. Los estudiantes que frecuentemente están ausentes, tarde o se salen temprano están en desventaja. Les pedimos de antemano por su cooperación en hacer que los estudiantes lleguen a tiempo y no sacarlos temprano, a menos que sea una emergencia absoluta.

Como directora, voy a pasar la mayor parte del día adentro de las clases para monitorear la enseñanza y el aprendizaje. Si usted tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud, le animo a ponerse en contacto conmigo a través de la oficina, ya sea antes o después de las horas de clase. Si no estoy disponible en cualquier momento, por favor deje un mensaje detallado con el personal de la oficina y un número de teléfono. Espero trabajar con toda la comunidad escolar para proveer un servicio de máxima calidad a las familias de la Escuela Intermedia Alder. Al trabajar juntos tendremos éxito en que todos los estudiantes cumplan o excedan los estándares de nivel de grado. Espero un gran año. ¡Estoy segura de que tendremos un año escolar sobresaliente al trabajar con todas nuestras familias de Alder para continuar con la tradición de excelencia académica!

!Vamos falcones de Alder!

RACHEL’S CHALLENGE
To encourage kindness around campus, we are going to start a "CHAIN REACTION."

CHAIN REACTION:

  • Each classroom will create their own chain
  • The links of the chain will each be 2 inches by 12 inches, varying in color.
  • A student will write on a link if they have seen kindness to others, have had a kind gesture done to them, or they have acted kindly to another person.
  • They will write the incident as well as their name on a link, then that link will be attached to the others.
  • Aida will be placing in your box, some start up construction paper with an example of the size attached to it by this Friday.
  • At the end of the year we will connect all of or our chains to see how long it will stretch!!!
