Principal's Message


Dear students, parents, guardians, and staff,

Welcome back to the start of the 2023-24 school year! I hope you all had a fantastic and rejuvenating break. As we prepare to gather here at Lindero Canyon once again, I am filled with excitement and anticipation for the incredible journey that lies ahead.

First and foremost, I want to extend my warmest greetings to all our new students joining us this year. We are delighted to have you become a part of the Lindero Canyon Middle School family, and we look forward to witnessing your growth, achievements, and contributions in the coming months.

To our returning students, welcome back! You have already made significant strides in your education, and I am confident that this year will be filled with new challenges and opportunities to excel even further.

As we begin this new school year, I want to emphasize that our commitment to providing a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment remains unwavering. Our school is not just a place of learning; it is a community where each individual is valued and respected. Lindero Canyon is a place where everybody belongs!  Let us continue to support one another, celebrate our diversity, and foster an atmosphere of mutual understanding.

Throughout the year, we will focus on cultivating a culture of curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity. Our dedicated and passionate faculty members are prepared to guide and inspire you on your educational journey. Remember to actively engage in your studies, participate in extracurricular activities, and explore new interests. Your active involvement in our school community will not only enhance your learning experience but also forge lasting memories and friendships.

Parents and guardians, your partnership is essential to the success of our students. We encourage open communication between home and school, as it plays a vital role in fostering academic growth and emotional well-being. Together, we can support our students in reaching their full potential.

As we embark on this new academic year, let us keep in mind that challenges may arise, but with determination and a growth mindset, we can overcome them. Whether it be academic endeavors, personal goals, or community initiatives, let us face each challenge with courage and resilience.

I am eager to witness the accomplishments and successes that will undoubtedly unfold throughout this academic year. Let us work together, learn together, and create a school year that will be remembered for its achievements and positive impact.

Once again, welcome back to the 2023-24 school year. Let's make it a remarkable one.

Go Cougars!
