FREE PARENTING CLASSES
We are happy to announce an upcoming parenting workshop, "Raising Thriving Kids". It will be taking place July 17, 18, 24 and 25 and facilitated by our Elementary school counselors here at the (PDSC) district office. It is only a 4 day workshop (see flyer for exact dates and time). One great thing about this workshop is not only will the parents be learning useful parenting tools, the children, in childcare, will be receiving guidance also.
Speaking of parenting, we just wanted to share a couple of new resources for staff, students and parents on internet safety:
RVMS was recently awarded the distinction of being an AVID national demonstration school! Only three percent of AVID schools world wide are honored with this distinction. While we already knew this to be true, this achievement confirmed that we are an exemplary model of the program and demonstrate the very best AVID methodologies and strategies. This is a huge accomplishment that was only made possible by the hard work and dedication by RVMS staff and students. Be extremely proud to be part of the Maverick Family - we're officially an AVID NATIONAL DEMONSTRATION SCHOOL.
Hello Rancho Viejo Middle School parents and families, this is Principal Jeff Moore calling with a school update.
I would like to wish all Rancho Viejo Middle School families happy new year and welcome back to school in 2013.
There will be no school Friday, January 18th as a non-student day and in recognition of Martin Luther King JR Day, there will be no school Monday, January 21st. School will resume Tuesday, January 22nd at 9:54.
This week is the last week of the first semester. Students need to make sure they have completed any late work or made up any missing tests or quizzes before this Friday. Late work turned in after Friday will not count, since teacher’s grades are due this Friday.
All parents are encouraged to drop off and pick up their students in the main school drive way and encouraged not to use the park, across the street from school as drop off or pick up zone. The park is an unsupervised area and it is unsafe and illegal for students to j-walk Cawston Avenue in front Rancho Viejo. Please help us keep your children safe.
All students at Rancho Viejo are required to have a book for reading. Please take a moment and ask your child what book they are currently reading and see how they are enjoying the book. Thanks for helping establish Rancho Viejo Middle School as a culture of readers.
Please friend Rancho Viejo and follow all school updates on FaceBook.
– Go Mavericks.!
Message from HUSD to Parents and School Community
Regarding Sandy Hook School Shooting
Dear Parents and School Community,
It is with deep sadness and heavy heart that the nation faced a tragic and senseless act which occurred inside an elementary school in Connecticut. Our prayers and thoughts are with all the families.
Our school system continues to respond to potential threats by working to ensure two things: (1) that schools have crisis plans or comprehensive multi-hazard plans in place, ready for quick and confident activation; and (2) that school system resources are available to help with the mental health needs of children and adults during this time of crisis.
We continue to assist principals and school staff in preparing for a variety of emergency response situations. We continue to take proactive measures to protect the safety of all our students and staff members. In addition, we coordinate efforts with local emergency management agencies, emergency responders, medical services, county and state safety and mental health officials. Depending on the nature of an emergency, we would respond according to our plans for potential threats and will follow directions from public safety officials.
In the meantime, the stress of a crisis can be a problem for children and adults, and we have trained professionals ready to assist students and faculty in dealing with the crisis. As a parent you have the difficult decision deciding how or if you will discuss this event with your child(ren). We recommend you seek guidance from medical professionals, clergy or personal counselors.
The safety issues confronting our nation and community are serious. We know that parents, students, and staff will work together to help maintain a focus on teaching and learning in our schools as we address this continuing situation. Thank you in advance for your cooperation as we work together to ensure the safest environment for our students, staff and community.

RVMS IN THE NEWS
It was a GREAT day to be a Maverick on October 19, as the entire school joined together to take a stand against bullying and create an anti-bullying circle. Our school was joined by district and local officials, along with local law enforcement representatives who filmed the entire event from a hellicopter. This clip was broadcasted by KCAL news the same evening. Mavericks rock!
