Welcome to Mount Elden Middle School!
Greetings and welcome back to another school year. I am very happy to have returning students back and excited for all the new students who have joined our MEMS community! Welcome back students and parents!
My name is Belinda Yoyokie and I am the Native American Academic Advisor at MEMS. I am half Navajo and Hopi and my clans are Todich'ii'nii born for the spider people.
Middle school is a time for new adventures in the world of learning and one in which skills are learned in preparation for transition into the next grade. As parents and guardians, let's remember that it is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. I want your child to be happy and to be successful and you play a key role in this process. Celebrate your child's success, no matter how small it may be. I guarantee this will keep your child enthused and proud of what they do in school.
Students!...What you need to do right now is plan and make goals as to what you will accomplish this semester and for the school year. Take charge of your academic learning. Pay attention in your classes, do your work, take advantage of the after-school tutoring sessions, do weekly grade checks with your teachers and ask for help if you need it. Remember, my door is always open so do not hesitate to come and see me.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with your children.
Let's have an awesome 2013- 2014 school year!
