Welcome to Seaside Middle School

2020-21 Academic Year
 
Dear Seaside Middle School families,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I am honored to serve this learning community, and even though we are returning to Distance Learning, I look forward to partnering with each of you to ensure that all of our students are supported to grow as learners and leaders. 

As we begin this exciting chapter together, I want to share my core values as an educator so that you know how I am working to serve your children, your family, and our community:
 
•   Every student at Seaside Middle School deserves the best education possible; academic and social/emotional/behavioral growth happens when we communicate high expectations and proactively plan intentional supports to hold students accountable.
 
•   Adult and systems learning are at the core of school improvement; professional development is most effective when it is reflective, contextualized, and ongoing.
 
•   The trust of all stakeholders is earned and maintained through collaboration, coherence, and transparency; this is the foundation of respectful, productive relationships that promote student success.
 
•   When decision-making is collaborative, data-informed, and equity-driven, we reflect and grow to do what is best for students.
 
At Seaside Middle School our mantra is, “Together, we rise!” It is essential that we work together and lift one another up in service of our children. Please know that I am here to listen, learn, and partner with you so that together as staff, students, and families, we can forge an inclusive community that is centered on collaboration and learning.

Our doors are open to you, and we desire to be in communication. Feel free to contact our office at (831) 899-7080 or email me directly at aswinney@mpusd.k12.ca.us. Go Eagles!

Respectfully,
Adam Swinney
Principal, Seaside Middle School
