Welcome to Sevilla West Middle School!
We are about to embark on a new and exciting school year! I would like to start by welcoming all of our new students and families, you made a great choice in selecting Sevilla West School. It is my core belief that every child deserves, and must be provided with a quality teacher, a rigorous and challenging curriculum, a positive, nurturing, and collaborative learning environment, and a school staff and faculty that is committed to doing what is best for children. We provide our students with the highest-quality academic programs available, which include the use of FOSS hands-on science, Ready Mathematics, Carnegie Math Intervention, as well as the research-based reading program Success For All. In our academic programs our students learn through doing. We learn from each other everyday in the classroom through the use of cooperative learning and peer tutoring. We also provide opportunities for students to work together on projects, teams, and clubs around the campus in order to build an awareness of other’s strengths, knowledge, and talents.
We are committed to incorporating technology at Sevilla West School. Each day our students can interact with SMART Boards, cps responders, Mac Books, and I-Pads in order to continue to advance towards the digital future that lies ahead. We also have a strong STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) presence on our campus. We offer advanced math classes such as Algebra and Geometry as well as before and after school opportunities to take part in our science clubs, like the Design Squad and the MESA club. We are pleased to be one of three schools in the state to offer the SRO Challenge Club, which recognizes academic achievement and outstanding character on our campus as well as the around the community. Some of our community outreach efforts through this program were recently televised on Fox 10 News. Also, we will continue to have sports programs to develop skills, teamwork, and a healthy lifestyle.
At Sevilla West, we believe our students can achieve whatever they want in their lives through hard work and commitment. We will support our students through all of their endeavors and provide for them a positive school environment that makes students want to come to school everyday. We encourage all parents to be active partners with Sevilla West School. There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer around the school and within the classrooms. All parents are welcome to take an active role through our School Community Council. We also offer learning opportunities for parents as well through Curriculum Night, Family Nights, and Bring Your Parent to School Day. I look forward to working together with you, the parents and community of Sevilla West, to ensure the success of all students. You can learn more about Sevilla’s upcoming events through our monthly newsletter and by frequently checking our school website. Together we will make a difference in the lives of our children! Here’s to an amazing 2016-17 school year!!
