A NOTE TO OUR STUDENTS:

Welcome back Saints! We’ve had a successful start to the school year and it’s terrific to have everybody on campus.


It has been a pleasure getting to know you. You bring creativity, innovation, leadership, your own sense of humor and the way you learn best. Knowing this we strive to make our classrooms a place where your interests and enthusiasm can take off. We are committed to making our campus a safe place where you can be challenged and learn from mistakes.


We want you to do your best and have fun along the way. We want you to communicate your thoughts and feelings, to stretch yourself academically and personally, and to abide by the AUSD core values of Respect, Integrity, Teamwork, and Excellence.


The adults on the middle school campus understand there will be times of great success and accomplishment, along with times of trials and misunderstandings. We are committed to standing beside you on your best days, and supporting you throughout the challenging days as well.


You are the future leaders. We have much to learn from one another and we look forward to an amazing school year.


Warmly,


Mrs. Lloyd, Principal
