School Principal - Carolyn Eide
Dear Jaguar Families,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! It has been 25 years since Jehue Middle School opened its doors to serve the community. We are celebrating our Silver Anniversary and we are so proud of our students, staff and community. Some of our most recent accomplishments include the following. We are a Platinum Level PBIS school with solid systems in place to teach and reinforce positive behaviors and provide supports to all students. We are an AVID School wide Site of Distinction which means that all students benefit from having teachers trained in AVID strategies and techniques. We are also California Green School at the Gold Level. We are also the first Dual Immersion Language program at the secondary level within the Rialto Unified School District, We look forward to seeing and working with our students and families throughout this school year and continuing to strive for excellence.
We are continuously collaborating to create new learning opportunities for our students. This year we have a robust garden in which our students can learn about growing vegetables, fruits and herbs. We are in the process of adding an outdoor classroom with California native plants that our Science students can enjoy during class time as they learn about environmental content. Our state of the art ES ports classroom is the largest and best in the District
Our Instructional Focus is to "Prepare all students to be strategic thinkers and problem solvers by building literacy skills in all content areas and requiring students to justify responses using academic language with textual evidence when appropriate." We are committed to providing the best educational experience for all students academically, socially, and physically.
I will spend two full days every week in classrooms to support teaching and learning throughout campus. Additionally, our Assistant Principal's will spend at least 1 full day every week in classrooms. Therefore, we may not always be able to speak with you when you drop in or telephone us. However, our office staff is wonderfully equipped to assist you with questions or concerns. If they are unable to assist you, they will schedule a meeting with an administrator or arrange for one of us to call you back within 48 hours.
Thank you and we look forward to connecting with you and your family.
Assistant Principal - Angel Arratia
Greetings Jaguar Family!
I would like to welcome back all returning students, new students, family members, and our community. My name is Angel Arratia, Assistant Principal and newest addition to the Jehue Middle School family. Let me also take this time to thank our students, parents, teachers, and staff members for their resiliency, patience, and understanding during these unprecedented times. My family consists of my wife and two daughters. One of my daughters is entering her Senior year and the other one is starting Sixth Grade, so I totally understand the challenges we face.
I look forward to establishing a partnership that will benefit your student’s experience in middle school. I believe my experience in high school for these past 15 years, twelve years as an English teacher, Avid Coordinator, Head Varsity Baseball Coach, and most recently my last three years as BARR Coordinator which consisted of overseeing all ninth graders will greatly benefit our students here at Jehue. There will be many opportunities for parental involvement and I invite you to join us as a valuable member to our school community. I want to reassure you that together we will continue to give our students the best safe learning environment that will develop their agency as critical thinkers and problem solvers. As a proud new Jaguar, I welcome you once again.
Assistant Principal - Cynthia Pool
Greetings Jehue Jaguars! My name is Cynthia Pool and it is my pleasure to serve as one of your assistant principals at Jehue Middle School. This is my third year at Jehue and I am very excited to continue my work with our students, families, staff, and community. I am starting my 19th year with the Rialto Unified School district, where I entered as a middle school art teacher at Kolb. My family consists of my husband, 2 children (one who is in middle school, as well), and 2 dogs. I understand how busy life can get, and I will do everything I can to assist our Jehue families each day. Please do not hesitate to contact me, as it is my wish to have all jaguars experience the best of Jehue each day. I am looking forward to the adventure this school year will bring. Let’s go Jaguars!
