Superintendent's Monthly Message for September, 2016

Superintendent's Monthly Message

CJ.pngMUSD Community,

Thank you to all our staff members who worked so hard preparing each classroom and school facility for the return of our Martinez Unified students.  It was a wonderful start to the year across our district.  I had the pleasure of being in so many classrooms during the first week of school, and it was a true privilege to watch our students engage in their learning this year!

Martinez Unified is very lucky to have such great community and local business support for our schools. I am hopeful you’ll join me on, October 2, 2016, for a great event to support our schools, the Shell/MEF Run For Education!  More information about this great event to support our schools is provided below.

As I am sure you have seen in your travels around Martinez, there are many things happening with construction in our schools.  Las Juntas and John Swett now have air conditioning in their classrooms, we are progressing on the construction of a new classroom building at Alhambra, and the new Vicente/Briones campus is moving quickly toward the final stages of construction.

You may be aware that Martinez Unified has a bond measure, Measure R, on this November’s ballot.  The focus of these bond dollars is to address facility needs across our district where schools need repair, remodel and renovation. Measure R dollars would be controlled locally and will not be subject to the volatility of our public school funding from the state.  Measure R funds would be used to modernize and provide additional classrooms, restrooms and school facilities at elementary schools to prevent overcrowding, make repairs and upgrades to ensure student safety, upgrade electrical systems and replace plumbing systems, construct career and technical education classrooms, including science labs, to prepare students for college and careers, and improve student access to modern technology.  None of the Measure R dollars can be used for administrative or teacher salaries.  An independent citizens’ oversight committee and independent annual audits would be required as part of Measure R.  If you would like more information regarding Measure R, please review this one-page informational summary, http://goo.gl/dLnhmF

It was great to see many of you at the Alhambra football game the first week of school. I hope to see many more of you at this Friday night’s game at Knowles Field!  Come cheer on your Dogs and see our awesome AHS Band and cheer teams! You can also cheer on our other outstanding student athletes across the AHS campus in other sports such as, Water polo (boys and girls), Girls Volleyball, Girls Golf, Cross Country, and Girls Tennis.

Thank you to the teachers of John Muir who made me a part of their classrooms on Friday morning. I plan to be in schools and classes each week. This past week I was able to reignite some skills from my days as an elementary school teacher while working directly with groups of students in Kindergarten, 1stgrade, and 2nd grade.  We did everything from working on the letter “C” in Mrs. Robinson’s class to building our reading skills in Mrs. Wagner’s 1st grade class, and we made Math Beetles and Clue Cards in Mrs. Metcalf’s second grade class!  It was great to be working with students and alongside our teachers.  I hope to be in your student’s classroom soon!  You can see some pictures on our MUSD Social Media accounts, Twitter - @CJMUSD, Facebook - Martinez Unified, and Instagram - martinezusd.

 

Please take a moment to review the additional information provided below.

Sincerely, 

CJ Cammack, Superintendent

Mark your calendars and start warming up for the Shell/MEF Run for Education onOctober 2, 2016.  Martinez Education Foundation (MEF) recently awarded grants in the amount of $168,120 to Martinez Unified School District classrooms, teachers, and students. MEF is a tremendous support for the great work happening in our schools.  Thank you to Shell Oil for their continued support and partnership with MEF and in support of our schools.  I hope you'll join me on October 2, 2016

Student Essay Contest Sponsored by: Shell

Each year, Shell Martinez employees volunteer thousands of hours in our local community. They have painted buildings, read to students, planted gardens, installed irrigation systems and worked at the annual Run for Education.

Community Service can be defined as, “volunteer work intended to help people in a particular area.” We think it is much, much more.

What do the words community service and volunteer mean to you? You’ve probably heard about volunteerism or “giving back to the community.” You may have been asked to volunteer before, or you may volunteer on a regular basis. In this competition, we challenge you to move beyond the words, “volunteer “ and “volunteering” and explore what they mean to you. What is the meaning of community service in your own life, in your local community and in the greater world? Why is it important to you and the people around you? We look forward to your thoughts.
