Announcements

  • Kennedy High and Middle College similarities

    Like Middle College, Kennedy students will be taking Contra Costa College courses beginning in the freshman year in high school.  Like MCHS, Kennedy students will take seminar classes to support them in rising to the college-work standards. 

    With the incredible resource that the Fab Lab brings to Kennedy, the team there has developed Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering pathways to compliment the already successful Information Technology pathway.
     
    So while it may be some time before half the Kennedy High seniors graduate with an Associate of  Arts degree the way that half the Middle College students do now, it’s not unreasonable to predict that more than half the Kennedy High class of 2020 will have a full year of college credit when they graduate.

This school year will usher in some great opportunities for your student.
  • Expanded Learning Program (after school program): An offering a variety of new activities for students including academic support and enrichment activities, such as art, computers, dance, sports, and more. 
  • Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is an opportunity for students to explore the engineering pathway and go in depth with science and math. 
  • Mafanikio: This is an exciting new addition to our school to assist in increasing academic achievement for African American students.
  • Social and Emotional Learning/Counseling: We have several community partners that work in our school to provide students support they need to be successful in school via counseling, group discussions, mindful life, and restorative justice.
  • Breakfast, lunch, and supper:  All students may eat free of charge at our school. Ensure your child gets to school early to take advantage of the free breakfast program Monday through Friday. Please check www.wccusd.net/dejean for more information.
Academic Focus
Academics will be a focus of administration and all educators on campus. We will be using data to look at student success and correct what we need to do as adults in order to assist your student with optimal learning. I will be mandating that myself and VP Valdez be in classrooms throughout the day to support strong learning.
 
We pledge to challenge your student academically. We will need your assistance with this: attend parent/teacher conferences; check-in with your child daily; look at their grades/attendance on PowerSchool weekly; communicate with their teachers. 
 
Safe Campus for All 
We will continue to focus on safety. A strong emphasis will be placed on ensuring our campus is a safe place for students to be and learn. To do this, we will need support from families, students, and community partners. We strongly encourage, and will continue to enforce, students to report incidents to any adult on campus.  
  • All students must wear their student ID card while on campus. This will help identify anyone who shouldn’t be on our campus.
  • Parents/Guardians are welcome on campus, but must sign-in with the front office and display the proper visitor’s identification. All visitors must adhere to WCCUSD policy.
  • Students are only allowed to wear Lovonya DeJean Middle School hats or beanies. No other head-wear will be allowed to be worn or be visible while on campus during school hours.

Together, we can help your student be successful in middle school, all the while preparing them for their high school adventure along with exposing them to ideas about college and career. Feel free to contact me, knowing that email will be the best way…understand that my first priority is DeJean students and being out on campus.

On behalf of Vice Principal Ms. Valdez, Instructional Specialist Mr. Lobaco, the faculty and staff of DeJean Middle, and the WCCUSD, welcome to the 2016-17 school year.

In solidarity,

 
Mr. McGee
