“Carpe Diem!” greets students, staff, and visitors in hallways and classroom doorways throughout Duniway Middle School. This theme serves as our daily guide as we implement strategies and practices that allow and encourage all staff and students to “Seize the day!” In actuality, we seize each moment before, during, and after school to facilitate student achievement. We have a deep commitment to providing a balanced program of academics, electives, advisory, opportunities for community service, and extra-curricular activities to meet the unique social, emotional, and cognitive needs of our students. We honor diversity and create opportunities for all our students to seize the day inside and outside the classroom.
Our collaborative spirit defines us and is tangible upon entering the building, and we all take ownership in creating an inviting climate that allows optimum learning to take place, understanding that we are giving our students a foundation for their future, which includes high school and beyond. Personalizing our environment for adults and students is a guiding principle. It is critical to us that not a single one of our students is anonymous; we know our students and we seize every opportunity to meet their needs. Grade level teams of teachers, counselors, specialists, and administrators meet formally every two weeks – and informally daily – to celebrate student successes and plan layers of support for students struggling academically, socially, or behaviorally & We listen to student voices and encourage students to lead. Our students know Duniway is their school, and that makes all things possible.
For the second year in a row we have received statewide recognition for outstanding student performance, having been named one of the top ten middle schools in Oregon, which places us in the top 5% of all middle schools in our state. Additionally, Duniway received an Outstanding rating on our Oregon State Report Card, a rating only received by 32% of all schools K-12. Your children are in the hands of talented and knowledgeable educators!
As always, my door is open. I welcome conversation and enjoy hearing your insights.
