Mr. Nick Garcia
Hello Sierra Vista Students and Families!
My name is Nick Garcia and I am excited to be joining the Sierra Vista team, as the new principal! I look forward to meeting all of you this coming year and getting to know your interests and priorities. The entire team at Sierra Vista is committed to providing students with engaging and rigorous instruction, with opportunities to connect with their peers through school activities, clubs, and sports, and with the support they need to be successful and reach their full potential.
Our work at Sierra Vista is in direct partnership with families. We depend on open communication with families to ensure we meet the needs of all students. While middle school provides several new opportunities for students, it can also present a number of challenges. Below are a few suggestions on how to support your child through the year:
1) Ask your child about their day. Encourage them to be open with you and to let you know what is going on in school. Whether it is an upcoming test or project, an upcoming activity, or an issue they’re having with their peers, it is very important that they communicate with you.
2) With your child, read and review the information that schools and district provide. Be familiar with the course offerings, rules, and expectations outlined in the student handbook, etc. Make it clear that they must follow school rules and policies. Remind them to respect people and property.
3) Be sure your child attends school regularly and is on time. School attendance is very important. Being at school regularly helps students build consistency and routines. If your child will be missing a day, please contact the office to inform us and have your child connect with their teacher for any missing work.
4) Stay informed of your child's performance. Aeries Parent Portal is a great way to get updated information on your child's grades and attendance. If you need help accessing your account, please contact the school office. Many teachers also use Google Classroom, where parents can view students’ assignments and course materials.
Be sure to read the weekly Falcon e-news, on Parents Square, for weekly updates that are sent home each Sunday evening. Follow us on Instagram at SVMSROCKS and stay up to date on the events and happenings at Sierra Vista.
Looking forward to a great year!
