Principal's Message

A big 2014-15 welcome to our Warrior students and families!  


Sierra Junior High is brimming with anticipation of an outstanding school year.  With new elective offerings, the work to master instruction in Common Core, new support programs, and an amazing instructional team as well as support staff- the sky is the limit for student success.


In addition to a strong academic program, we are proud to offer a wide range of opportunities for involvement in athletics and student activities.  Our students were recognized as champions, scholars, and artists last year in a variety of contests.   Thanks to Cathy Lauritzen- athletic director and Andrea Marjala- ASB director who bring these events to our students.  They can always use help, and we thank the Parent-Faculty-Student-Association for providing hours of volunteer time and continual support of Sierra Junior High.  


As we journey forth together into this exciting time in our students' lives, you are invited to get involved on campus.  Through PFSA, team boosters, School Site Council, The Sierra Foundation, and VIP's....there are so many ways to contribute and be visible supporters of education and our schools.  If a busy schedule or crazy work hours interfere with volunteering, there is always a need for items at events and fundraisers.  


Another tool for for busy parents is the Aeries Portal.  Access it through this webpage to check on your child's grades and communicate with their teachers.  It's a live look into each grade book and is updated weekly, at a minimum.  Most of our junior high teachers also post lesson information, make-up work, and project details online through their web pages.  If you aren't sure of your log-in, contact Reggie Foster in our office for assistance.


As partners for student success, our children have the best team behind them!


It's going to be a great year, Warriors!!
