WELCOME Dear Valadez Middle School Academy Families:

I hope that everyone is having an enjoyable and relaxing summer. I’m extremely excited about the 2014-2015 school year and continuing the commitment to academic excellence and supporting all the rich traditions that take place at Valadez Middle School Academy.

The 2014-2015 school year promises to be an exciting year at Valadez Middle School Academy. It is my priority to ensure students with a safe/positive environment and to provide the highest quality of instruction for our students. I look forward to meeting and getting to know all our families. Together with this great community and our staff, there is nothing we can’t accomplish. Our staff will continue to participate in ongoing professional growth, deliver the most current and relevant common core standards, deliver explicit direct instruction, and engage students in their learning through interactive technology. We will work diligently to meet the individual needs of all our students’ academic learning styles and achievement levels. On behalf of the Valadez Middle School Academy staff and myself, enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to the 2014-2015 school year. Important information below:
