The Spartan multi-use building at Sunnyvale Middle School buzzed with energy on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 with students from every grade level participating in the school’s first mathematics festival in place of their normal math class. Students had 40-minutes to go through 15 different stations that offered 12 levels of challenge.
In an effort to stop bullying behavior before it reaches adulthood, assault victim and San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow told Sunnyvale and Columbia middle school students about how he recovered from a brutal beating by two men after a 2011 Dodgers-Giants baseball game in Los Angeles left him in a coma for months.
Families, teachers, and administrators came together March 9 to celebrate students for overcoming extraordinary challenges and demonstrating unwavering resilience and leadership.
Armed with a brand new, clear and focused mission, Sunnyvale Middle School is strengthening the learning experience for all students even further. The mission is based on the core belief that students will be engaged and empowered to reach their highest academic potential and social emotional growth. A team of 25 people was formed from a cross section of the school community over the course of a month, and was tasked with sharing their values, their vision and their goals for future Spartans.
We have been making important strides toward the success of our students. To continue on that path we will be creating a shared vision for the future of our school. It is important that we have involvement from all stakeholders in our community.
