SARC
 
All public schools are required to prepare and distribute a SARC (School Accountability Report Card). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.  SARCs are prepared with information from the previous school year.  The 2013-14 SARCs can be obtained from the school website and district website at https://www.tracy.k12.ca.us/AboutTUSD/SitePages/SARC.aspx.   Paper copies will be made available, upon request.
 
 
 
PARKING LOT SAFETY - Please stay in your lane and watch out for pedestrians so that everyone is safe. Also, ONLY staff cars are allowed in the back parking lot. Please do not let your child off there.
 
REMINDER - Whenever you pick up your student early from school, please remember to bring your ID to the office.  We check ID every time on every student to ensure our students' safety.  Thanks for your cooperation! 
 
LANYARDS: Students are required to wear their IDs on a lanyard around their necks every day.  Please make sure that your child has the ID and lanyard ready to wear as he/she leaves for school. Thanks!
 
 
CALIFORNIA ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT PERFORMANCE AND PROGRESS (CAASPP)
The results of the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments in English language arts/literacy and mathematics, part of the state’s California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), are scheduled to be released later this month (September 2015).  Students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 across the state took this test last spring.  It was the first statewide administration of this new test.   For more information about the assessments and the score reports that will be mailed home for all students who took the test, CLICK HERE

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Dear Mustang Students and Families,
 
September is a busy month for the Mustangs. School opened quite smoothly and most of our programs are up and running. We are proud to begin another year's partnership with the Boys and Girls Club. They provide many types of after school activities, including sports and Power Hour tutoring, to name a few.
We had an awesome turn out at Back to School Night. We want to thank each family for making it a priority to visit our school and meet our teachers. We also want to thank Dr. Stephens, our superintendent, for coming to our BTSN and meeting our Mustang Families. Thanks to Mr. McMillan and his talented Monte Vista Jazz Band for providing great entertainment.
September is full of activities for our students and our parents. You will soon receive information about our parent classes, School Site Council, and Science Camp fundraising. In addition, students will vote for ASB officers and enjoy our first Spirit Day! Lots of fun combined with academic rigor is the September recipe for success!
Progress reports will be sent home shortly. If your student is struggling, encourage attendance at our free after school tutoring. If we start out strong in September, the rest of the year will be a breeze!
 
Always, should you have any concerns, please call us or come on down to school so we can help.
 
Barbara Silver, Ed.D
Principal
Monte Vista Middle School
 
Go, Mustangs!
