Meet the Principal

Jason Wrzeski

Hello and welcome Bear Valley Middle School students, families, and community members to the 2019-2020 school year.

At Bear Valley Middle School our entire staff is dedicated and driven to increase student achievement campus wide and install and maintain positive character traits to develop well-rounded students that are career and college ready.

For the 2019-2020 school year we will be continuing our commitment to each student’s academic, social, and emotional growth. We will continue our focus on implementing the Common Core Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, C3 Social Studies Standards, and revised Physical Education and Visual Performing Arts Standards. The Bear Valley staff will continue to work hard designing lessons that align to these standards and incorporate meaningful instruction and strategies that create high levels of engagement.

As an award winning school, our emphasis at Bear Valley will continue to be working with the 4 C’s (Communication, Creativity, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking) and developing high quality, engaging instruction to all students. Students will be exposed to these elements across all curricular areas. In addition, Bear Valley is recognized throughout the state for our award winning Video Production Program, Robotics, STEM, Science, and our Visual and Performing Arts.

For the 2019-2020 school year our focus will continue to be aligning our instruction to the California Common Core Standards, creating multiple opportunities for students to collaborate and explain their thinking through the implementation of engaging and empowering instructional strategies, on-going data review to guide instruction, and making meaningful connections with our students. The Bear Valley staff will take part in on-going professional development throughout the year to strengthen our skills in these areas.

Parent and family involvement, as well as maintaining a positive school culture are priorities. Information on parent workshops, VIP Parents at Lunch Days, and ways parents can be involved in planning and decision making regarding the operation of the school will be shared via the school calendar and phone/e-mail messages. Our goal is to communicate and collaborate to keep our families informed. We want and need your involvement and support.
