As the new principal of Holtville Middle School, I am excited to welcome all students back to school!
This year, we are working hard on continuing to implement the Common Core State Standards to ensure academic rigor and student success. Prior to school beginning, many teachers in all grade levels and subject matters attended the AVID Summer Institute to assist with school-wide implementation of AVID strategies. In addition, we are proud to be part of a continuing Dual-Immersion program. Dual-Immersion has now expanded to all grade levels at the middle school. Holtville Middle School teachers and staff are committed to high expectations in preparing students for Career and College Readiness.
I strongly encourage all students to find a way to be involved with their school. Holtville Middle School offers many programs for involvement, including band, MESA, seasonal sports, and ASES. Involvement provides opportunities to meet new friends, enjoy new experiences, and build valuable relationships.
Here’s to a great 2016-17 school year!!
All my best,
Holtville Middle School Principal
