A Letter From the Principal

Dear East Avenue Middle School Families:   

The first day of the 2015-2016 school year is August 24th, and East Avenue Middle School is looking forward with enthusiasm to another great school year. We have five new teachers, a new principal, and a staff that is dedicated to meeting the needs of our students.

I am truly honored to have been selected as the principal of EAMS, and I am looking forward to working closely with students, staff, parents/guardians, and community members. I came to the field of education after a twenty-year career with the Federal government. The 2015-2016 school year marks my eleventh year in the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District. I began as an English teacher and department chairperson at Livermore High School, followed by four years as a vice principal also at Livermore High School. I understand high school curriculum, university/college entrance requirements, and the demands of the 21st Century workplace. I am committed to preparing EAMS students for success in high school and beyond.

I will partner with staff, parents/guardians, and community members to work on three overarching goals: 

  1. To support students in developing the skills and knowledge to graduate from high school college and/or career ready.
  2. To provide an engaging, clean, healthy, and physically and emotionally safe environment to support learning at the highest levels.
  3. To enhance parent and community engagement and communication.

Working together, we can achieve these goals!

Sincerely,

 

Helen N. Gladden, Principal

East Avenue Middle School

Prevent Summer Slide!

Prevent Summer Slide!

 

You and your family have worked hard all year to learn new concepts and stretch your math brain.  Don't let all that hard work go to waste!  There are many things that you can do to keep all that math knowledge securely in your brain (and not all of it is super boring!)

 

 

FREE ONLINE WEBSITES (some have a pay option which allows for more reports or extra games)

 

For very easy K-8 math standards based game playing, try Sumdog.com .  It is mental math games.  Some EAMS kids have usernames and passwords, others do not.  The website is accessible to everyone, though.  Start a new account. Parents can monitor student progress. If you use the school code: eams, then you can be included as part of East Avenue.

 

For K-8 math standards Mobymax.com is a great website!  Students take a placement test and then have lessons and practice on the skills they need. There are hints and videos to help students understand. Parents can monitor student progress and it can be used for Reading and Writing as well as Math. It is VERY easy to use.

 

For K-12 math standards, IXL.com has many practice problems.  They also have English standards.

 

For K-12 math standards, Tenmarks.com is useful.  Like Mobymax, students take a placement test and then work on skills they need. There are hints and videos on this site, too. The reading level is quite a bit higher than Mobymax.

 

For math of all kinds try khanacademy.com. You can use a personalized account or use the site as a guest. Dr. Khan has any 5 minute videos to explain all sorts of concepts and practice problems, too. Khanacademy.com is an excellent resource to help with homework during the school year, too.

 

 

BOOKS and other resources

 

If you are looking for a non-computer based way to practice and study over the summer there are many different workbooks available.  Look for books that go along with Common Core Standards. Target, Walart, Costco and Barnes and Noble carry many choices.

 

 

LEARNING CENTERS – These are great for students who have struggled in math. They are pricey, though.

 

Kumon – 925 371-1996

 

School Tutoring -  1-877-545-7737
