Duty Schedules: Due to technical issues, we will be unable to release our weekly duty schedules until tomorrow morning. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Master Schedule: We will continue to utilize our collaboration time to develop balanced student rosters. Administration and support staff will continue to hand place our ELD students over the next two days (Newcomers and 6th Grade are complete). We have made some revisions to the Student Placement Data Sheet that was shared last Wednesday. We will once again meet in the staff room this Wednesday to review updates before we move into our grade level teams.

Winter MAP Testing: Math and Science teachers will be proctoring our annual Winter Math Map testing this week beginning on 12/10/18. Thank you for your dedication to this process. We will have a variety of support staff circulating to assist with the inevitable glitches of the standardized testing process. Your patience, persistence, positivity and professionalism is greatly appreciated.

Posada: We currently have over three hundred guest coming. Food preparations are in order, the bicycle raffle is complete, gifts have been delivered (thank you Student Council and Healthy Start!), and I understand Santa Clause will be making an appearance. Please consider signing up to help. All staff, both classified and certificated are invited to join in our annual spirit of giving event.

School Spirit: Thank you to all you teacher warriors who showed up to develop community with our students. We greatly appreciated your time, teamwork and effort. Go Panthers!!


Gentle Reminders;

  1. Welcome Back Panthers! We hope you had a restful weekend.
  2. Cell phones/personal electronic devices must be off and in your backpacks when you set foot on campus or they will be confiscated.
  3. Earbuds or other personal electronics should also be off and in your packs.
  4. A punctual individual is a successful individual. Be on time to school. If you are tardy, you will be directed to the Student Window.
  5. Pajaro Middle is an institution of learning. Be respectful with your words and your actions.
  6. Keep your hands to yourselves at all times.
  7. Student violence will not be tolerated. Seek first to understand, then to be understood. When in doubt, tell and adult.
