Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome to Yorba Linda Middle School. Your school is a place not only of academic excellence, but also a place where students are highly valued as responsible citizens in our community. As we look forward to this new school year, we will be sharing with you the information you will need in order to be successful. Let us begin by introducing you to our office staff and our vision/mission statement.
The handbook has been updated! Please read it carefully then print, sign, and return the last page.
We envision our school as a place where we:
- Learn in a collaborative and supportive environment
- Strive for continuous academic improvement
- Participate in engaging, active, and challenging learning
- Develop integrity and good character
During the first weeks of school, your teachers, counselor and administrators will be sharing with you all of the information you will need in order to ensure success in your middle school experience. Your teachers will begin this process by reviewing specially prepared pages in this year's "Agenda." These pages will guide you and teach you skills every student needs in order to do their personal best. Mrs. Weirich, your Counselor, will talk with you about grading and honor roll. Your Assistant Principal will discuss pertinent issues in this handbook. Throughout this instruction, you and your parents will be asked to talk together and sign and return some of the papers that you discuss.
Know that it is our goal for you to have a year in which you achieve your personal best academically; learn, grow and mature as citizens in our community while you are enjoying your friends and school activities.
We wish you great success at YLMS!
Mr. Greg Kemp
