Masuda Monarchs have spirit! My goal is to encourage all students to participate in various activities that are ongoing throughout the year. When a student is involved in activities or clubs, they gain a sense of belonging! Our students are highly successful and are proud to be Masuda Monarchs!
INCENTIVES Academic achievement and good citizenship are qualities that produce success in the real world. Most students understand the correlation between school performance and success. Sometimes, however, it is good to send a more immediate message about the value of performance and citizenship. Our staff believes that school recognition helps sustain success. Therefore, expect that your child may receive the following rewards with efforts for academic achievement, improved effort, and/or good citizenship:
Academic recognition for those students who receive a 3.0 or higher with our Got Grades? event. Students receive a t-shirt or other item, prizes, treats, and time to be outside.
Monthly rewards for Academic Student of the Month as well as Royal Recognition honoring effort, citizenship, and improvement
Principal’s List and Honor Roll Awards and academic achievement reward assemblies It is inconceivable that any student would go unrecognized for some type of recognition. We are looking for the good in every child who attends Masuda.
Caught with Character Cards given by teachers and staff to recognize good behavior habits and helping around Masuda.
STUDENT ACTIVITIES Masuda Middle School provides numerous activities for our students. Our magazine and cookie dough fundraiser beings in September and leads us into a variety of activities throughout the year. ASB puts on three dances a year as week as several dress days and lunch time competitions. Masuda also encourages student participation in our district sports tournament teams, noon sports leagues, and after school clubs sponsored by our PTA. Cheerleaders offer spirit and support for our teams and the Help Hands club provides service opportunities on campus and in the surrounding communities. We encourage all Masuda Monarchs to be involved in some aspect of student life and to make the most of their experience here!
EIGHTH GRADE ACTIVITIES This will be a memorable and fun-filled year for the 8th grade class. Information about the 8th grade Arrowhead Ranch trip as well as promotional activities including Knott's Berry Farm, the promotion party, and the promotion ceremony will be sent home with students in the first day folder. The information will include the approximate cost of these activities. The costs of these activities can be offset by your student’s participation in the magazine/cookie dough fundraiser in the fall. 30% of all items sold will be applied towards the Arrowhead Ranch camp costs.
Eighth grade students who have successfully completed the course of study are allowed to participate fully in promotional activities. Those who are suspended three or more times and/or receive a cumulative GPA below a 2.0 will lose the 8th grade trip to Disneyland and the 8th grade class party.
