Welcome to 2019-2020 Azalea Staff, Students, and Families!
We are enthusiastic about the new year. We will continue to focus on cultivating a growth mindset, Bruin Pride and academic success. It is our mission to make connections with students and families to ensure we build a partnership for the success of our students. We are committed to all our students and their well-being, so they can maneuver middle school and make lasting memories.
Our mission is to establish a safe and supportive environment where we collaboratively develop confident, life-long learners and critical thinkers by promoting quality habits, values, skills and knowledge for their future endeavors.
It is with great gratification to serve this community of creative, compassionate, and adventurous learners.
By the NumbersWe currently serve 364 sixth-through-eighth grade students and have approximately 45 staff members. We follow a six-period day schedule with a Pride class at the end of the day. Our core classes and electives range from sixth-grade academy to drawing, computer science, choir, band and orchestra.
Bruin PrideAzalea encourages students and staff to have a growth mindset. This allows us all to see challenges as opportunities. In addition, we’ve put the focus on building a culture that fosters relationships by “connecting before correcting” and being helpful, not hurtful in our actions and interactions.
Athletics and ActivitiesAzalea offers many opportunities for students to get involved. They can participate in football, cross country, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, dance/cheer, and track and field. We also have after school clubs. Some opportunities are Homework Center, Dungeons and Dragons, Multicultural Club, and Dance.
Seismic Safety UpdatePhase One of a seismic safety retrofit project was completed in the summer of 2018 with money from a $1.5 million grant from Business Oregon. We are excited to announce that we have received another $2.5 million for Phase Two to retrofit our gym, which will start summer 2020.
