Principal's Message

 

It is my pleasure to welcome back the Green Machine for the 2nd semester! There is much to be excited about and much to celebrate. We had a very successful 1st semester in the classroom and out in the community and we look to build on those successes for the remainder of the year.

 

Back in November we welcomed our International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme authorization officers to our school for classroom visits and interviews with teachers, district staff and community members. It was a very positive visit and we look forward to hearing our results in the upcoming weeks. We are currently accepting Diploma Programme applications for our first ever cohort and we will be welcoming another group of authorization officers in early Spring.

 

We are very excited about the opportunities that we are offering our students and look forward to seeing what they are able to achieve.

 

In December we brought all of our English Learner students on their first program-wide college visit. They were able to attend our home school of CSUMB and also took a drive north to San Jose State University. It was an eye opening experience for them and we hope to inspire them to continue to pursue higher education and equip them with the skills to succeed there.

 

There are many more exciting developments coming! The demolition/construction of the new Science and Innovation Center will begin the next few months and our new field scoreboard should be up and running in the next couple of weeks. Our Winter athletic season is in full swing with boys and girls basketball, soccer and wrestling all off to promising starts.

 

SBAC testing will once again be in April and this will provide us with another opportunity to see our growth in Math and English. These tests are an indication of the hard work our Math and ELA teachers have been putting into preparing our students and also of the focus and effort that students have brought to their learning.

 

We look forward to continuing this year building off our past successes and would like to partner with your families to create the best conditions possible for your student’s academic success and maturation.Thank you for all you are doing to support our school community and we look forward to seeing you at one of our many student events.
