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.

Dear Lovonya DeJean Middle School Family Member,
We have completed Semester One! It was an exciting semester...
Now is the time for students to continue with good grades. We want all students to pass all classes with a grade of C or higher.
1st Annual Art in Education Extravaganza
Saturday, March 18, 2017, 10:00 am-2:00 pm, come and celebrate Art in March with us. This is a community event that is open to students of Lovonya DeJean Middle School and our elementary school feeders. There will be face painting, mural painting, story book creation, dancing, photos, 3D printing, and more. We will provide lunch at no cost to all attendees. Click here for flyer
This school year will usher in some great opportunities for your student.
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.
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.
Principal, Lovonya DeJean Middle School

Righteous has three definitions according to Merriam-Webster. And if Korematsu’s Ghouran Chang used it in a sentence, it might go something like this: I capped a righteous win at the West Contra Costa County Unified School District Middle School Spelling Bee by correctly spelling the two-syllable adjective.
