Van Nuys Middle School
A California Partnership School
Welcome Parents/Guardians to Van Nuys Middle School
WE NEED YOU ON OUR MUSTANG TEAM!
Our staff including administrators, teachers, clerical, paraprofessionals, custodial and cafeteria invite you to become an active member of our student success team. As parents, you are an equal partner on this team. Our goal is to ensure that your child is a successful student and member of our community.
There are many opportunities for you to become actively involved. You may participate in one or all of these opportunities:
The Family Center is open every day and you can volunteer in the center to make calls home, organize parent meetings or simply be available to greet parents when they visit the school.
School Site Council (SSC): This committee meets monthly to discuss school issues and determine the funding for special programs and resources to improve our educational program.
Shared Decision Making Council (SDMC): This committee meets monthly to discuss school issues and make decisions that impact our entire school.
Compensatory Education Advisory Committee (CEAC): This committee meets monthly to discuss the academic program, financial resources and support systems in place for our students identified Title I. These students need additional support to improve their academic performance.
English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC): This committee meets monthly to discuss the academic program, financial resources and support systems in place for our students identified as English Learners.
Parent Booster Club (STEPS): STEPS stands for Students, Teachers, Educating, Parents Support and is a registered 501(C)3 non-profit organization. STEPS meets once a month during "Coffee With The Principal;" usually on the first Thursday of each month. STEPS is our primary support group for parent volunteers and all fundraising activities. STEPS needs you!
Please join us.
We assure you that your child will benefit from the time you invest.
