First Dance: Neon!

Principal’s Message                                                                                                     9/19/16

Falcon Families – Here are just a few pictures from Friday’s neon dance. Everyone seemed to be having a fantastic time. There was something for everyone to do. If they didn’t want to dance, they could jump in either of the two jumpies. We also had ping-pong tables, corn hole, and pickle ball set up. With over 600 tickets sold, we all came together to kick off the first dance of the year. Thanks to our parents who volunteered as well as to our STPC. Everyone came together, including our friendly SRPD officer who helped a student in need with a ride home.

Thank you to all who attended Back to School Night. It was wonderful to get to meet so many of you. My hope is that you were able to go from class to class and experience a little piece of what your student experiences on a daily basis.

Respectfully,
Ed Navarro
Principal

Principal’s Message 9/12/16

Good day Falcon Families – The school year is progressing nicely.  Our kids all seem to be settling in and our faculty members are delivering engaging, educational lessons.  It is such fun to walk into classes and see such enthusiastic learning happening.

Back to School Night – I would like to extend an invitation to join us for Back to School Night on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 6:30 pm.  If you have a zero period student, the classroom presentation will be made at 6:15 in the Café.  This is a minimum day and students will be dismissed at 12:28. We begin promptly at 6:30 in the main gym, and then parents begin classroom visits at 6:50.  Back to School Night is a wonderful opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and review course expectations and content for each class.  We will have an ELAC meeting at 6:50 in room 23 for second language families.
With more than 850 students at RVMS, we know we will have a full house, so please honor our request that this night be reserved for parents and guardians only. While we will open the basketball courts to alleviate some parking congestion, I urge you to walk or carpool to this event.
Your student will be bringing home a school schedule template which they will have filled out so you, the parent, can walk a day in their shoes, getting the chance to experience the classes they attend on a daily basis.
Please remember that this is not the time to speak to your student’s teachers about individual progress.  Please email those teachers to set up a time to discuss such matters.

Online homework access – If you are interested in monitoring your student’s homework, please log on to the Rincon Valley Middle School website http://rinconvalleymiddleschool.com/ . At that point, you will click on the Directory/Homework tab at the top of the page.  You will then see all of our teachers and a link to their webpages, where they are updating homework assignments.  In addition to homework, you may see educational videos used in class, as well as copies of handouts and/or notes which may be helpful to your student when studying.

Home Access Center (HAC) – The HAC is now up and running so parents and students are able to view their progress in each of their classes.  If you are not already signed up, go to http://www.srcs.k12.ca.us/Pages/Home.aspx and select the Families tab on top, then the Home Access Center link on the left and follow the directions.

Oral Grades Week – Last week, your student should have been notified by the teachers of his/her progress in the class thus far. If your student is receiving a C- or lower in any class, you will be receiving a progress report in the mail in the next week.  If you have any concerns, please check the HAC and/or contact the teacher via email.

Neon Dance – Leadership will be hosting its first school dance this Friday from 3:15-5:15. Tickets are already on sale at lunch for $5.00.
•    The dance will go from 3:15 – 5:30. Students will not have time to go home prior to the dance.  Once students enter the dance they must stay for the entire dance. *See leaving early below.
•    On the day of the dance leave everything in your hall locker, (including your cell phone).  These doors will be unlocked after the dance so you can get your things before leaving.
•    Dances are sock hops so all students should come to school with an extra pair of socks. (These will be destroyed by the end of the evening. So un-matching, odds and ends are great!)
•    Students can bring clothes to change into, (be sure the clothes meet the dress code) and items to freshen up with. These items (and their socks) should be placed in their PE locker during the school day.
•    We will have a snack bar so money is the only thing that can be brought into the dance. No cell phones or cameras are allowed.
•    You will not be allowed back into the locker rooms so don’t forget your money!
•    Tickets are presale only. Please bring your ticket or wrist band and line up for the dance outside of the locker rooms.
•    There is no access to the stage area at dances.  Song requests should be submitted online line to the DJ Dax at: www.daxentertainment.com/
•    Students acting inappropriately at dances will be removed from the dance, and given disciplinary consequences which may include losing the privilege of attending future dances.  Students are also subject to the full school disciplinary consequences listed in the student planner.
*If a student needs to leave early:
1. The student should bring a note to the office at the beginning of the school day.
2. Students are responsible for watching the clock in the gym.
3. It is the student’s responsibility to meet parents at the dance boundary line, infront of the snack bar, at the designated time.
4. We will escort students to get their things out of the lockers, after they have made contact with parents. So please allow a few extra minutes to access both the PE and hall lockers.

Have a great week!
