DMHS Hosts Informational IB Program Informational Night

On Tuesday, November 4th at 6:30 p.m., Desert Mountain High School will host an informational night for all 8th graders and their families who are interested in learning more about the IB program and the pre-diploma program.  Families will learn about the application process, shadowing program and entrance requirements.  They can also ask questions of administrators, teachers, students and parents involved in IB.  It will be held in the auditorium, and families should park in the lot between Desert Mountain High School and Mountainside Middle School.  Informational fliers and shadowing forms will be sent home through all SUSD 8th grade English classes after fall break.  For questions, please contact Laura Kamka, IB Coordinator, at lkamka@susd.org.

Time to Set Second Quarter Goals
October 2014
 
Dear Mountainside Families,
Each quarter your child receives a new agenda book.  Is your child consistently using his/her agenda book?  Organization is one of many things we focus on in middle school.  Agenda books are a must and a key to keeping up with assignments and deadlines.
Traditionally in the second quarter, the expectations in and out of the classroom increase.  Please take a moment to reflect with your child on the first quarter of the school year.  Has your child earned the grades they hoped for?  Have they taken advantage of opportunities before, during and after school? What does your child need to do to have a more successful quarter?  This is the time to refine some habits that may or may not be working.  Do you allow enough time for homework?  Does your child communicate with their teacher when they may have a problem with an assignment?  How often do you and your child check grades?  Is your child waiting until the last moment to study for a test or complete a project when they have had days to do it?  This is the time to refine habits.  Third quarter will only be harder and we don’t want students to miss out on opportunities due to missing work or behavior that isn’t reaching Mountainside expectations.
We are here to help and we must continue to work together to ensure success on a daily basis.
 
Good luck in the second quarter!
Sincerely,
 
Terri Kellen
Principal
