A Message from Principal Vela
As we step into a new academic year, I am filled with enthusiasm and a deep sense of responsibility towards the bright minds that grace the halls of South Middle School. Our collective commitment to your child's education is something I hold in high regard, and I am excited to embark on this journey of growth and learning together.
I write to you today to emphasize the critical elements that play a vital role in your child's academic success and overall development:
Attendance Matters: Attending school regularly is a cornerstone of academic success. Each day presents an opportunity for your child to learn, grow, and connect with their peers and educators. We kindly request your support in ensuring your child's punctuality and regular attendance.
After-School Programs: Our after-school programs offer a wealth of opportunities for your child to explore new interests, develop skills, and foster a sense of community. These programs provide a safe and structured environment for continued learning beyond regular school hours. We encourage your child's participation and invite you to explore the diverse options available.
Safety Protocols: The safety and well-being of our students are paramount. We have implemented a comprehensive set of safety protocols to create a secure learning environment. Rest assured that we are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of safety throughout the school year.
Teacher-Student-Parent Relationships: A strong partnership between teachers, students, and parents is essential for academic success. Open communication, trust, and collaboration are key components of this relationship. Our teachers are committed to providing a nurturing and supportive educational experience for your child, and we encourage you to engage with them regularly.
Student Support: We understand that each student is unique, and their needs may vary. Our support staff and counselors are readily available to provide assistance, guidance, and resources to ensure your child's success. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you believe your child could benefit from additional support.
In closing, I want to express my gratitude for entrusting us with your child's education. Together, we can create an environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas to share, please feel free to reach out to me directly.
I look forward to a productive and enriching year ahead. Let's work hand in hand to create a memorable and successful academic journey for our students.
