Message From the Principal

Dear Parents/Legal Guardians:

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! 
The staff at William Moreno Jr. High School plans to continue a successful journey with you and your child during this school year. At William Moreno Jr. High School (WMJH) we are committed to developing in students a high level of academic and personal success.  A great degree of student, parent cooperation and support is necessary to ensure that William Moreno Jr. High is an exciting, safe and rewarding learning environment for all students.  The curriculum at WMJH will be rigorous and the standards will remain high. We are committed to preparing our students for the 21st century. Our students deserve a world class education! To accomplish this, we encourage parents to join the staff of WMJH to make our school the pride of Calexico.
The staff at WMJH has established a professional learning community. We are committed to working together with you to provide educational opportunities for all of our students. To be successful as a learning community we need your help. Partnership is the key to a successful learning community!
We encourage you to develop a collaborative relationship with teachers. Open communication during the entire school year is essential. Your support and involvement is an important factor for the success of your child. There are many ways to get involved in your child’s education: volunteering in the classroom or during lunch time, chaperoning during dances and ASB activities, joining our School Site Council, being active in our Parent Center, and assisting with other school activities.
The 2018-2019 school-year will bring many new and exciting learning opportunities for all of us. However, academic and personal success for your child will come easier when working together. We must all be willing to embrace the journey your child will embark on during his/her two years in Jr. High. I encourage you to work with us and together as a team, we will strive for quality and success. William Moreno Jr. High is a great school and with your involvement it will continue to provide the best learning opportunities for your child.
I encourage you to carefully read our Parent and Student Handbook with your child.
I wish you and your child have an exciting and remarkable 2018-2019 school year!
