Welcome Back, Everyone!

 

We have had a very smooth start to the school year. We're so happy to see those familiar faces of our 8th graders and

our new 7th grade friends that we will be getting to know over the next 10 months or so. Middle school is such a great place

to be, and LeyVa is amazing. We are so proud of our teachers, staff, and students. Our campus is safe, we have so many

fun things planned for our students, and they will absolutely be prepared for high school. Our students have access to

wonderful programs on both sides of our campus; our sports teams are always competitive and very often win championships;

our academic preparation turns out great writers and strong math students; NGSS science is taught by all science teachers

using a digital curriculum this year complete with many labs and hands-on projects; and our Social Studies teachers are

delving into the new Social Studies framework which emphasizes the development of student content knowledge,

discipline-specific inquiry, student literacy, and citizenship. LeyVa Middle School/Bulldog Tech are incredibly diverse,

culturally rich, and vibrant places where student voice is valued and encouraged.

 

We are Bulldogs!

District Updates

Important Information Student Placement
Posted 08/22/2017 05:03PM
 

 

The first two weeks of school are always a bit hectic as enrollment numbers are worked out and classroom formations are solidified. It is possible that classes will be added, dropped, or that combination classes will need to be formed. Should this happen, some students will be required to change classrooms or possibly be overflowed to another site within the Evergreen School District.

The first two weeks of school, parents should consider their student's placement to be provisional. Should it be necessary to change your student's placement, you will be notified. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make this process as smooth as possible for our students.

Thank you!

Both of these amazing people have plenty of experience working with middle school students, are passionate about strengthening our already positive school climate, and are already busy working on plans to make this next school year the best one yet. Please join me in welcoming our newest Bulldogs, Ms. Doxie and Mr. Garner!

LeyVa Middle School Stands with ALL Students and Their Families

 

There has been a lot in the news regarding immigration enforcement, and many in our community are worried. I want all of you to understand that our school is a safe haven. In 1982, the Supreme Court affirmed that "....public schools were prohibited from denying immigrant students access to...public education" and that "undocumented children are entitled to equal access to a public elementary and secondary education regardless of their or their parents actual or perceived national origin, citizenship, or immigration status."

 

That means we serve ALL kids and families. We protect our children and their families. Your personal information is confidential. Parents, your children are safe at our school.

 

At the Feb. 9 Board Meeting, the Board passed a resolution that affirms, "support of students and families regarding immigration enforcement actions at schools." The following link has the complete resolution in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese:

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Sherman at jsherman@eesd.org here at LeyVa.

 

Student Drop-off Safety

Our drop-off and pick-up system in front near the office is crowded, but most of our drivers are being careful and safe. The last thing anyone wants is to have one of our children hurt as they are coming to or leaving from school each day. There are some tips that I wanted to remind everyone about to ensure the safety of our kids. Here's a brief list:

 

1. Drive slowly ALWAYS. LeyVa has a student population of around 800 kids. They all come and go each day. Most of them walk, cross the street, or walk through areas where cars are present.

 

2. Stay off the cell phone. I see parents each morning on their phones, looking down as they pull in to the parking lot to drop off or pick up their kids. We will let you know this is unsafe and that it's important for you to be off the phone. Please understand, it's not personal. We do everything, every day to protect our students. Trying to get folks off their phones who are distracted is just part of that.

 

3. Pick up and drop off at the curb.  When your kids are allowed to run through the parking lot to or from your car, it's extremely dangerous. There is simply too much happening and not everyone is always paying attention (See #2 -- cell phones). You think everyone is watching, but the reality is they aren't always. Please help us keep your kids safe by dropping them off at the curb. And, we will be there to greet them! :)

 

4. Follow the directions of school personnel outside. We will motion you to keep moving up. Please do that! We aren't being difficult, we just want to make sure we get as many cars in off the street and as many kids to school on time as we can. When you stop early, it backs everyone up. Perhaps your child has to walk a little further. That's okay! It's a short walk to their classrooms, and I'm sure they'll make it on time.

 

5. Leave plenty of time to get to school. We know it's hard when there is so much going on in the morning, but you generally know how much time it takes to get the kids to school. You know that they must be on time as well. Rushing in the morning is dangerous on the roads, and we don't want any kids hurt because of that rushing or driving too fast. Going to bed earlier, getting up early, and being to school on time produces happier kids who are rested and awake for school. It's safer for everyone, too! Pay attention to the weather as well. If it's raining, you'll need to leave earlier and drive slower to be safe.

 

Thank you for continuing to make our streets and school safe. You make the difference!

Behavior and Expectations

 

Parents and Students, I want to remind everyone that our rules and expectations are always in place. We expect all of our students to act appropriately and follow all of our LeyVa rules. Remember that are rules extend from your house to the school and from the school back to your house. Safety is our main concern for all of our students, so if there are incidents after school or on the way to school remember that we will be involved. I would argue that wherever you go, you represent your family and your school, too.

 

Our kids are known for making really good choices, and I am proud of them. Thank you so much for doing the right thing, students! Sometimes, however, our students make poor choices and there are consequences for those. More than that, their safety, health, and reputations can suffer. We want our kids to shine and continue to be proud of who they are and to conduct themselves with dignity wherever they are.

 

Remember, ALWAYS treat each other the way you want to be treated. Bulldogs are strong, caring, respectful, and persistent. LeyVa students look for opportunities to build each other up and make things better for those around them. I am so proud of our students!

 

Go Bulldogs!

Box Tops

Please Clip and Bring in your "Box Tops for Education"

Each school year, we send in our Box Tops that have been collected. Each one is worth ten cents, so if we save up enough of them, we can get some much needed items for our school. The Box Tops can be found on many products in the stores around your homes. They are found mainly on boxes or packages of food, but they can also be found on clothing items. The popular ones in our house are Kleenex brand tissues, Yoplait yogurt, and General Mills breakfast cereals like Cheerios. Here is a list of items with the "Box Tops for Education" labels. Clip them out and bring them in! Thank you so much, and let's support LeyVa in any way we can!

Bullying Resources

Bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. (https://www.stopbullying.gov/what-is-bullying/definition/).

 

We will always listen when students or parents report incidents of bullying, so students and parents should contact the administration or any of our amazing teachers if they feel this is happening. We have a form that can be filled out and submitted in our school office. The Evergreen School District has an online Bullying Reporting Form where students can report bullying online as well. The report can be made anonymously, but please note that the more information we receive (names, location of bullying, name of the reporter, etc.), the more successful we can be at putting a stop to it.

 

Having our kids feel safe and secure at LeyVa is our first priority. Help us put a stop to any behavior that takes away from that safe and secure feeling. The evidence is overwhelming that bullying has long-term effects for kids. Students, if you are bullying, stop immediately and work to make things right with those you have affected by it. If you see others doing it, step up and stop it. Remember that standing by and letting someone get bullied empowers bullies to continue this unacceptable behavior. Parents and students, please let us know it is happening so we can put a stop to it. LeyVa students respect each other and themselves and they know this behavior is wrong. Our students are good people and do the right thing.
