Dear Camerado Students and Parents,
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am honored and excited to return for my third year as the proud principal of Camerado Springs Middle School. I eagerly anticipate another successful year partnering with the staff and community to ensure our students have an exceptional educational experience. Our commitment at Camerado Springs is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.
Camerado Springs provides a rigorous curriculum based on the California Content Standards, and we offer multiple opportunities for students to be successful. Classroom time is devoted to learning and instructional minutes are sacred. A variety of teaching strategies are used to engage student interest and address the unique learning style of each student providing a deeper understanding of the curriculum. Whether students are interested in athletics, the arts, technology, or leadership, they will find an outlet for their talents. We are here to meet the needs of each student academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.
Our school will continue our work in implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to create and maintain a safe and effective learning environment and ensuring that all students have the social skills needed to ensure their success at school and beyond. The purpose of PBIS is to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm. We will continue to teach positive behavior just like academics and acknowledge students that show the "Wildcat Way!"
Camerado Springs encourages its students to get involved and stay involved. We believe it is important to be connected to the school through positive relationships, a sense of community, and participation in extracurricular opportunities from the first day of school to the last. This is the message students will hear often.
Our staff recognizes the role they play in helping your children reach their full potential, and they do not take the responsibility lightly. We truly believe "it's all about the kids," and that all students can be successful. It's these beliefs that drive the work they do on a daily basis. Parent involvement too is vital to your children's success, and we ask that you continue to play an active role in their education.
I am privileged to lead such an outstanding school community, and I will look forward to what I know will be both a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time.
Proud to be a Wildcat!
