MEET THE PROUD PRINCIPALS OF LGAM!

Tamara Muhammad, Principal (tmuhammad@lemongrovesd.net)


Vanessa Ruiz, Assistant Principal (vruiz@lemongrovesd.net)


Torazzi Hayslett, Assistant Principal (thayslett@lemongrovesd.net)


It is an honor and privilege to serve our students and families as we prioritize the importance of cultural diversity and high expectations for all our learners. LGAM is a unique middle school that takes the time to make relationships with our students by having authentic conversations, conflict resolution via restorative circles, dancing with students during lunch, and even taking a break from daily duties to run the mile with our students.


We greatly appreciate the support we have received from students and families and we look forward to continuing to celebrate our amazing scholars throughout the new year. If you are ever in need of extra support and/or have a question, please do not hesitate to contact us via email. As always, we are happy to assist!

OUR FIRST REPORT CARDS ARE COMING THIS MONDAY!

Quarter 1 Progress Reports will be passed out on Monday, October 4th in each student's Advisory class.


Students will be asked to have a parent or guardian sign the Progress Report and return it to their Advisory teacher. Once the Advisory teacher receives the signed copy, they will give the student a second copy to keep for your own records.


Please keep in mind that Progress Reports are not official grades and are not calculated into students' official GPAs. It is considered a halfway point.


Here is a timeline of when Progress and Report Cards will be sent home with students.


Q1 Progress Report Cards: The week of October 4th

Q1 Report Cards: The week of October 25th

Q2 Progress Report Cards: The week of December 6th
