Sierra Junior High School continues on its constant quest for excellence in our community!
Our work on common core is developing richer lessons for our student body, with increased critical thinking and an emphasis on fully understanding and applying the concepts they are learning. Our teachers have been working hard, with little rest for the weary. If you see them, thank them for dedicating so much of themselves every day to our students' success.
Our students, themselves, have been shining in the news as well this year. You may have seen a proud soccer team practicing in the snow for a tournament recently. Below, you will see just a few of the news items related to our students' work and dedication.
Thank you for your support for programs like the Special Olympics, arts, music, athletics, and common core. It makes all the difference in the work we do for children!
