Welcome everyone to the 2015-2016 school year!! I am very excited about the wonderful things this year holds for all of you, as we implement the new Alder Middle School vision: Alder Middle School…where students, staff, and parents come together as a family to support and inspire one another based on who we are, what we do, and where we're going…...where students, staff, and parents come together as a family to support and inspire one another based on who we are, what we do, and where we're going...
Students: the expectations for attendance, behavior, and academics will be high! Falcon staff is ready to help and encourage you to meet and exceed these goals! When you do, we will reward and recognize you! If you fall short, you will have the support you need to overcome and do better. The bottom line is that as a middle school student, YOU are ultimately and mainly responsible for your own learning and success.
Parents: you are an integral part of your child's academic growth and success. As such, we will be opening the Alder Parent Center, this fall!! We encourage you to volunteer, join and run our newly organized PTA, come to the school for meetings, conferences, events, awards nights, visit classrooms, talk to administration, email teachers, etc. Whatever it looks like for you, get involved and engage with us, as WE work together to raise and educate the best middle school students in Southern California J!! Go Falcons and soar…
Your very proud principal,
Ms. Lisa Dushaj Mesa
