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.

    Information about Lovonya DeJean Middle School 
    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. 
    • Band is an elective class that has grown tremendously. We boast a fabulous marching band and drum line. Students have performed at various WCCUSD events, the annual Cinco de Mayo Parade for the City of Richmond, 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.

Community partners 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
    We pledge to challenge your student academically. Our focus on the California Standards ensure that teachers are working with students at the highest level, exploring the curriculum your students will need to master to prepare them for high school.
     
    We will need your assistance with this: we require that you attend parent/teacher conferences; check-in with your child daily; look at their grades/attendance on PowerSchool weekly; communicate with their teachers. 
     
    By working together, your student will be at the peak of their academic game.
     
    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 2017-18 school year.

    In solidarity,
