Dear parents, students and community partners,
Welcome to the Eastlake Middle web page. We have a number of links that will provide you with relevant information about the home of the Tritons. We look forward to working with you to have another outstanding school year. Our success has been as a result of the active parent engagement, the outstanding teachers and staff, the excellent effort put forth by our students and the ongoing community support.
In that regard, I am proud to announce that EastLake Middle has been recognized as a 2013 California Distinguished School by the California Department of Education. Selected schools have shown an ability to provide a rigorous educational program while also making significant progress in closing the achievement gap.
I am also happy to announce that we have been named a California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll School for 2012. The California business community bestows this honor to a select number of schools each year. Quoting Dr. James Lanich, the president of the CBEE organization, “After an extensive analysis of student achievement data for every public school in California, your school stood well above the rest in getting your students to grade level proficiency and beyond”. Our continued collaboration and commitment to excellence has made this award possible. It is our goal to continue to grow this partnership so Eastlake Middle can proudly say that we are providing our students with the best education possible, bar none.
As we plan for another outstanding year I encourage you to stay involved in your child’s education. I invite you to join our Parent, Teacher, Student Organization (PTSO). The PTSO has funded teacher mini-grants and sponsored our Most Improved Student Breakfast, Teacher Appreciation Luncheon and Triton Spring Fair.
Finally, on behalf of the Eastlake Middle staff, I thank you in advance for your support as we work together to provide your child with a positive and productive educational experience as an Eastlake Middle Triton!
Mr. Juan Ulloa, Principal
