Schools to Watch

Our school has applied to be recognized as a "Schools to Watch - Taking Center Stage" site. This award is nationwide and recognizes the very best schools.  This link leads to a detailed explanation: http://middlegradesforum.org/what-is-school-to-watch/


Parents are invited to meet with the visitation team on Thursday, Dec. 3 at 4:45 in the library. Your opinions are valuable to the process. 


Speak Up Survey

We're asking for everyone to take a few minutes and participate in the national Speak Up survey.  Speak Up, an online research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow®, gives education stakeholders the opportunity to share their viewpoints about key educational issues, particularly concerning digital learning and the use of technology to support future ready schools. Each year, findings are summarized and shared with national and state policy makers. 

We ask all our staff, students, and parents to let their voice be heard.  Please take a few minutes to help by following these steps:

  1. Go to www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2015
  2. Select 'parents'
  3. Type in 92886 for the zip code
  4. Scroll down and select Yorba Linda Middle School (2nd from the bottom)
  5. Start the survey.

Please take action before Dec. 17.  Thank you in advance for your help.

CAASPP Test Results

By now, you should have received results of your child's CAASPP test taken last spring. This new test was taken by students last spring.  It’s computerized and the format is very different.  Your student probably told you all about it.  Since these are the first results of this new test, it’s common to have questions.  There is a parent guide, available here, which can help explain the test and results.  Another resource is our district page, found here. We hope this information is helpful as you look at the results.




Parent University Classes

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District values the active role parents take in their child’s education. In order to support this relationship, the District has implemented a parent education program entitled “Parent University.”

We offer free workshops on various educational topics throughout the school year so parents can become better equipped to support their child’s learning. Research indicates that when schools work together with families to support learning, students perform better in school and throughout life.

Classes include:

  • Navigating the College System
  • Student Academics
  • Parenting Support
  • Student Safety

Classes are offered in English and Spanish.  For full class descriptions, click the link.ParentUniversityLogo_oval.jpg
