Welcome Marina Penguins to the 2015-2016 School Year
Welcome Letter - August 5, 2015
Dear Marina Parents and Students,
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! We are excited to implement several initiatives to engage and challenge all of our students including smaller 8th grade math classes, ALEKS for all students, and the integration of technology in classrooms.
All students report for the first day of school on Monday, August 17, 2015 and will receive their schedules then. The regular school day this year is scheduled from 9:10 a.m. to 3:25 p.m. Doors open at 9:03 a.m. All students are expected to be in their classes by 9:10 a.m. Marina has a Late Arrival schedule every Wednesday in order to allow teachers to collaborate in professional development. Classes will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesdays.
All 7th & 8th grade students are required to provide proof of whooping cough (pertussis) immunization. Verification must be provided or students may be excluded from school. Please provide a copy of your child’s immunization record to school if you have not already done so. Offices are open from 8:30 – 3:30 during the week of August 10 – 14, 2015.
All students are required to submit a meal application every year. Online applications are available at https://schoolmealapp.sfusd.edu. Parents may set up a pre-pay account for school meals at https://www.mypaymentsplus.com.
On Monday, August 17, 2015, all students are to report to the yard. Lists will be posted by grade level with this year’s advisory assignments. All students should locate their name on the list and remember their advisory room number. When the bell rings at 9:03 a.m., all students are to line up at the appropriate grade level designated doors:
Parents are welcome to participate at Marina Middle School by becoming members of our Parent Teacher Student Association. We also encourage parents to participate in our School Site Council and our English Learner Advisory Committee.
