It is with great joy that I welcome you to Oliveira Middle School for the 2017-2018 school year. As you make this important step in your academic career, I would first like to introduce you to our school’s basic philosophy. Like most schools, we emphasize discipline through the adherence to rules, which, in our case, are set forth by both our administrative team, and by BISD policy. However, our school is also based on a set of 3 fundamental values which we believe are instrumental to any individual’s success: perseverance, resourcefulness, and devotion. Because each of these attributes are so vital, the faculty and staff of Oliveira Middle School will constantly motivate and challenge you to adopt them as part of your own personal philosophy.
You will soon discover that the curriculum at the middle school level is very rigorous, but you can always count on the support of our dedicated faculty. Additionally, if you are focused enough and truly abide by our school’s 3 core values, there is nothing stopping you from reaching your full potential and achieving success. That is why, on the first day of school, you will be greeted by teachers who are focused on our mission statement, “We are committed to the academic and social development of alumni who will become critical thinkers, life-long learners, and productive citizens.”
Please remember, I will always be proud to serve as your principal. Never forget the 3 core values, even in times of great success or tremendous struggle. Perseverance, resourcefulness, and devotion will always steer you in the right direction.
I look forward to our time together and wish you the best of luck as you step into a new world of academic possibility. Welcome to Oliveira Middle School! Have a great 2017-2018 school year!
Yours in education, Cynthia Castro Principal, Oliveira Middle School
