8th graders – we are still missing permission slips for walking back to WRMS after the promotion practice.  Please bring to the front office ASAP!  Everyone needs a permission slip and ID for check-in.  Attendance will be taken at promotion practice and back at WRMS, so all students need to walk back.  Also, please check the promotion row notice in the MPR.

 

As you know, our 8th grade promotion ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, May 31st at 6:00 pm in the Dougherty Valley High School stadium. I am writing to make you aware that we have made a change to the promotion practice details that were previously published in the 8th grade celebration packet. To help alleviate traffic concerns for DVHS on that morning and to meet the instructional minutes requirement for that day, we will have the following schedule for eighth graders on Wednesday, May 31st:

7:00 am - 7:30am  Students will be dropped off by parents and check in at the DVHS small gym -

7:30 am - 8:30am Promotion practice will begin - Students will practice processing down to the field and will do a practice run-through of the ceremony.

8:30 am - 9:00 am  Students, escorted by teachers and administrators, will walk back to the WRMS campus.

9:00 am - 10:00 am  tudents will again have additional time to sign yearbooks in the WRMS gym.

10:00 am-10:30 am Students will be released for pickup outside the WRMS gym - Please pick your student up by 10:30 am.

 

There has not been a change to our nighttime ceremony. The schedule remains as follows:

 

5:30 pm      Students check in at the DVHS small gym to line up for the promotion ceremony.

6:00 pm      Promotion Ceremony begins.

7:00 pm      Promotion ceremony ends with the students processing out of the DVHS stadium to the front of the DVHS large gym.

Thank you for your flexibility. We apologize for the late notice and change of plans. Please complete the attached field trip permission slip that is required for us to walk students back our campus after practice. Field trip permission slips should be submitted to our front office no later than Friday, May 19th.

Drop Off/Pick Up: Helpful Hints

Thank you to all the drivers at WRMS for showing patience and courtesy to other drivers. Here are some hints that may lighten traffic and stress on adults.

  1. There is only 1 right hand turn lane into the parking lot  from E. Branch Pkwy coming from Bollinger Canyon Pkwy (if unable to enter, go up to 2nd light, make u-turn, then left turn into parking lot).
  2. Arrive closer to 3PM- the parking lot is full by 2:40 and cars won't move until kids are dismissed at 2:45.
  3. Your children are safe while waiting in the shady areas in front of our school.
  4. Please carpool or encourage students to walk/ride a bike, scooter, or skateboard to and from school.WRMS_dropoff_pickup.gif

TECHNOLOGY

Dear Par­ent/Guardian,

As part of our commitment to ensuring that parents are aware of the technology we are using in our schools, I would like to share with you a list of the web-based programs used by both our school and District, including links to more information about these systems. Please know that over the past school year we have been reviewing the privacy policies of all of the programs that we use to ensure compliance with the Federal Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) and other federal and state laws, and that we are doing everything we can to protect our student information.

SRVUSD takes security very seriously and has therefore taken every precaution to secure our student and parent information. In order to secure your personally identifiable information we utilize several security and privacy measures to prevent loss, theft, or misuse of any student or parent data. Please see our district web site for information about systems in use district-wide (www.srvusd.net/techforparents).

In addition to the district programs, our school has adopted the use of the following:

  • NewsELA
  • NoRedInk
  • Ed1Stop/Learn360
  • Spelling City (6th grade only)
  • Membean (8th grade only)

 

In some cases, teachers may use other apps or web-based teaching tools. Staff are asked to read the privacy policies prior to using them. In addition, beginning this year, teachers will be informing parents when they are using something that is not on one of the lists above.

In some cases, parents will be asked to sign a permission form before the student uses the technology. This will take place when the program requests cer­tain personally identifiable infor­ma­tion, gen­er­ally the student’s name, must be pro­vided to the web site or application oper­a­tor.  Under state and fed­eral law, some web­sites and apps must pro­vide parental noti­fi­ca­tion and obtain parental con­sent before col­lect­ing per­sonal infor­ma­tion from chil­dren under the age of 13.  The district will not knowingly use, with or without your consent, any program or service if the program or service sells or shares personally identifiable information beyond what is necessary to operate the program or service, in the case of a merger or acquisition, or as required by law.

You can learn more about online privacy by visiting San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s Digital Citizenship webpage (http://www.digitalsrvusd.net/).

Sincerely,

David Bolin

Principal's Welcome Message

“There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.”
James A. Lovell, Apollo Astronaut


Staff, students, and parents partner together to make things happen at Windemere Ranch Middle School. Since we opened in August of 2005, our students have consistently achieved outstanding scores on state exams placing WRMS in the top one percent of California middle schools. We have twice been recognized as a California Distinguished School, once as a National Blue Ribbon School, and most recently this spring we were recognized as a California Gold Ribbon School.  I am proud that the learning environment here inspires students to do their very best.

Our website is both user-friendly and informative. If you are a parent or student, you will discover more detailed information when you log into your Schoolloop account using the login button located on the left of this homepage. One of my personal goals is to make certain this website is an effective communication tool so that everyone connected to WRMS is well informed about all the activities on campus. Please explore this site and look for updates and pertinent material. You will find that the quick links sidebar connects you to SRV district news and Common Core California State Standards.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me. I want to work together with you throughout your child’s time at WRMS to ensure the best possible experience for them. We are good at what we do because our combined efforts encourage students to meet, and even surpass, each and every one of their goals. I urge you to come and help us make things happen at this exceptional California middle school.


Warm Regards,
Dave Bolin, Principal
