The Warrior Way

Congratulations, Warriors!


The start of the year kicked off in great fashion! Not only have students been engaged and excited to be back at school learning, but we have seen a decrease in student behaviors and increase in positive actions!


Thank you for attending Back-To-School Night on August 22nd. We had a great turn-out and were happy to see so many families join us. Watch for more upcoming opportunities to get involved in school activities throughout the year.


We are very excited to have been recognized by the PBIS Coalition of California for reaching GOLD status this year! The criteria called for increased student positive behaviors and consistent reinforcement of our school tenets of Safety, Manners, and Self-Responsibility. We are very proud of all of our students and staff for achieving this high honor. A Golden Celebration is planned for later this month.


SEPTEMBER is Attendance Awareness Month. Our goal this year is 95% attendance for every student. This means for 180 total school days, students are absent 5 or less days. Let the school know if attendance or truancy is an issue and see how we can help.


Home-School Partnership - Middle School Attendance Matters!

  • Make sure your student attends school everyday on-time. Our daily goal is to have over 95% of our students in attendance.
  • Have access to your student's information through our Parent Portal on Infinite Campus.
  • Make sure your contact information is current. Call the school to update phone numbers and addresses. You may update your email through Parent Portal.
  • Stay connected by keeping up-to-date through our social media and school webpage. Join our parent groups-volunteers are always appreciated.


We greatly appreciate the home-school relationship in working together for your student's success. We love and appreciate our Standard Middle families and are looking forward to a year of greatness with students!

Sincerely,

Susan Denton

Spotlight on: SCIENCE!

The Science team is gearing up for an amazing 2019-20 school year! With the adoption of our new STEMscopes curriculum, we received all new textbooks, workbooks, and an abundance of lab equipment and supplies. This adoption also comes with an online component, which allows students to practice digital test-taking strategies.


Although we are still early in the year, the response from the students during Science classes has been overwhelmingly positive due to the large number of hands-on labs and activities that are built into each segment of the STEMscopes curriculum.


We're off to a good start and are looking forward to keeping the momentum going Warrior Strong, all year long!

Lunch for All!

Our district implemented a program that allows EVERY student the opportunity to enjoy a non-cost lunch. At the middle school alone, we have nearly doubled the number of students being served at lunch. We are proud of offer this program to the students of the Standard School District.
