A Note From Administration

As we approach the end of the school year, we wanted to take a moment to update you on some of the exciting activities that we have planned for our students.

Firstly, we would like to remind you about our school drama production of High School Musical Jr, which will be taking place on May 18th at 6 pm at Excelsior Auditorium. Our students have put in countless hours of rehearsal and preparation to bring you an entertaining and unforgettable show. We encourage all parents to attend and support our budding performers. Following that, our Spring Band concert will be held on May 23rd at 6 pm at Excelsior Auditorium. This concert will feature our talented band students, who have been practicing and perfecting their pieces for the past few months. We are excited to see our students shine on stage.

We will be holding a 6th and 7th Grade Awards Assembly on May 26th to recognize students who have achieved a 3.0 or higher. Invitations for this assembly will be sent home on May 22nd, along with information regarding the specific times for each grade level.

A reminder for our 8th-grade parents that promotion packets will be available for pick-up on May 24th for 9:00 - 10:30 and 1:30 - 3:00 in front of the MPR. These packets will contain important information regarding the promotion ceremony, which will be held on June 1st.

Furthermore, we would like to inform all Los Alisos Middle School parents that May 30th, 31st and June 1st will be minimum days, with students being released at 1:15 pm. Please plan accordingly for pick-up or transportation arrangements. We hope that these updates provide you with the necessary information for a successful end of the school year.

As always, thank you for your continued support.

May Self Care

Self-care means taking the time to do things that help you live well and improve both your physical health and mental health. When it comes to your mental health, self-care can help you manage stress, lower your risk of illness, and increase your energy.


Los Alisos Career Day 2023

One of our goals as a counseling department is to prepare our students for college and career readiness. We held our annual Career Day on March 23, 2023. All students were exposed to a diverse group of speakers to expose them to future possibilities and to get them excited for things to come. We are so thankful to the professionals who came out to speak to our students about their careers. The speakers included critical care nurses, a correctional officer, South East Academy staff, global financial advisors, a paralegal, an attorney and an aerospace engineer. They discussed things such as education requirements, workday duties, income, etc. We sent out a feedback form to the students and we received very positive comments. We are always looking for amazing speakers to motivate our students. If you would like to present or know someone who would, please let us know so we can get you signed up for next year!!

Drama Club

The Los Alisos Drama Club was established this year as a way to provide students with an outlet for creativity and self-expression. Each session, we explore different performance styles such as miming, improvisational theatre, dance, and singing in addition to dramatic and comedic acting. Students are on their feet and given the opportunity for a much-needed movement break after a long day of sitting in classroom after classroom.

This year, the Drama Club will be presenting Disney's High School Musical on May 18. Auditions were held in February and the students have been singing, dancing, and practicing their dancing two to three times a week after school. Not only have they been showing amazing talent, but also extreme dedication to their craft. Recently, all their hard work was made evident as they presented excerpts as part of a school-wide assembly presentation.

Overall, we're very proud of our Drama Club for their willingness to put themselves out in front of a live audience to perform and show off their creativity. Keep up the good work, Lobos, we're all in this together!

AVID Collaborative Study Groups

AVID students will be participating in collaborative study groups to assist them with questions they have in their math classes.. They will be filling out their tutorial request forms (TRF) on a weekly basis.. Students will learn how to write their point of confusion (POC) and reflect on their learning at the end of collaborative study groups. They will be directed to ask higher level questions to the student presenter to help them identify their point of confusion. The learning will be taken back to their core classes to further their understanding.
