Parents and Guardians,

I wanted to sincerely welcome you and your student(s) to Ignacio Middle School this year.  As always, we will strive to make this a great academic year.  I am pleased to share with your that our state academic growth scores indicate that we have had more than one year’s growth in both Math and Language Arts.  That marks the second year in a row and three out of the last four that our school has had this achievement.   Our focus at the Middle School is identified by our two goals:  1) Each child will achieve high academic growth  2) We will create a supportive and engaging learning environment.  The administration and staff have worked very hard developing programs that support both of those objectives.  Resiliency and kindness will be stressed throughout the year as our students become young adults.  Here is a list of upcoming policies and events at the Middle School.

Other important items to note include:

We appreciate all of  your support of the Middle School policies and procedures.  It is paramount that the school and the parents/guardians support one another as our children begin to test boundaries.  The onset of puberty will bring out many emotions and situations for our kids and it is imperative that we work together.  I look forward to seeing all of you at the open house on August 28th.  Sharing a meal is a great way to start the year.

Very Sincerely,

Christopher deKay

Ignacio Middle School Principal
