White Hill Middle School is a California Distinguished School that serves the communities of San Anselmo and Fairfax. It is the Ross Valley School District's sole middle school for approximately 700 6th-, 7th- and 8th-grade students from our communities' four elementary schools.

Our academic program offers a breadth of challenge and opportunity with core English, History, Science, and Math classes and award-winning Art, Music, Technology, and Foreign Language electives. Thirty-eight teachers, twenty classified staff members, one counselor, three counseling interns and two administrators deliver this engaging and rigorous education program. White Hill is enriched by broad parent and community support and is a active partner in the work of our district's YES Foundation.

Located on the western edge of Fairfax at the base of White's Hill, the school campus is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and open space and sits on a 22-acre site that includes Lefty Gomez Field. White Hill was built in 1969 and has gone through two major renovations (1985 and 2000). In December 2013, 25,000 square feet of new learning space currently under construction will open, providing our students and staff with a facility that supports 21st-Century teaching and learning.

Wildcat Wrap 8.29.14

Dear White Hill Families,

We hope your child had a great first two days of school. We know that for some of us the start of school is not always smooth sailing and we are committed to supporting you and your child during this transition. Please let us know if we can help your son or daughter in any way.

This is the first of a weekly newsletter that I will publish each week. I hope you find the contents to be informative and useful. Please bear with my closing prediction on the weekly Wisconsin Badger sporting event of the season. There are only about .05 percent of you that remotely care about this game but we aim to please at White Hill and I wouldn't want anyone feeling left out of the Wildcat Wrap.

Have a great 3-day weekend and we'll see your kids back here on Tuesday. Remember - Tuesday will be a regular Tuesday schedule!

Go Wildcats!

Where's the White Hill Handbook?

The White Hill Handbook is a part of your child's student agenda that he or she should have been given yesterday. If you start at the front of the agenda you'll quickly dive into the ever interesting White Hill Handbook - thank you for reading and discussing the contents with your child. Once done, please sign the form that says you read through the Handbook and have your child return it to his/her Advisory teacher. Thank you!

Forms Go-To Advisory!

The paperwork that went home yesterday asked that students return all forms to their homeroom class. Please ignore this request and ask your son or daughter to bring completed forms to their Advisory teacher this coming Tuesday or Thursday. We will collect all forms in Advisory going forward.

White Hill Clubs

An amazing array of lunch-time (and a few afterschool) clubs will be offered this fall thanks to our YES Foundation. Stay tuned for club offerings in mid-September. I will email all parents the lists of clubs well before our club sign up day and your kids will also gets lots of information about the clubs while at school. Clubs are a great way for kids to make new friends and meet another adult at school while learning something new or doing something they really enjoy.

School Lunches

If you are ordering school lunch through Choice Lunch, be sure to remind your child to pick up his/her lunch! I can only eat so many ceasar salads with chicken and fruit yogurt cups! Want to order lunch? Go to https://www.choicelunch.com/order and use the district code of ROSS.
