Message from the Superintendent - January 2015
Happy New Year!
I hope you have had the opportunity to drive by the new intermediate school. Everything is coming along nicely. We are on schedule to open for the 2015-2016 school year. Below are a few updates regarding the intermediate school.
Intermediate School Principal
Linda Achondo was appointed as the principal for the intermediate school. This is Mrs. Achondo’s second year as the assistant principal at Red Rock Elementary and her vast knowledge and experience has bolstered the planning process for the opening of the new building.
Grades Moving into the Intermediate School
The 4th and 6th grade levels will be moving to the intermediate school. The 5th grade will not be relocated as they are already housed in the POD. 5th grade students advancing to 6th grade next year will remain at the intermediate school. If your child is currently in 3rd grade he/she will attend the intermediate school as a 4th grader.
Mrs. Achondo has organized a leadership team to help with the decision making process. Some of the decisions that have been made are:
- The name of the school;
- Schedule for the different grade levels. As of now, the 6th grade will remain departmentalized. As an example, a math teacher will teach math all day while students rotate;
- Ordering furniture;
- Determining the number of new staff members that will be added. Positions will be posted as soon as they are defined;
- Equipment for a fully functional kitchen; and
- The colors and logo that will be featured throughout the building.
Your input is important to us! Please contact Mrs. Achondo, David Andra, Business Manager, or me with your questions, comments, concerns, and input. We are always more than happy to hear your thoughts.
Parents/guardians who have students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will be receiving additional information in regards to the intermediate school.
The new intermediate school is an added asset to our campus. This is an exciting time for our community and we look forward to the opening of the intermediate school.
If you have any questions please call the district office at (509) 346-2222.
