my name is Troy Martin and I am very excited to be starting my third year as the Assistant Principal at
Vista Verde Middle School. I would like to welcome both our new students,
who will be attending Vista for the first time, as well as all of our returning
Cougars. I will continue to work with our Principal, Mrs. Arce, and our staff,
teachers, parents, and students as we provide a positive and safe
learning environment where students can excel here at Vista Verde Middle School.
dedicated to offering a school that promotes collaboration
among teachers, students, parents, and administration working together to
create a setting where students can be successful.
With the continued implementation
of the Common Core State Standards, our teachers, and administrators, have been
attending trainings and working hard to provide a smooth transition to these new
expectations for your child. We are committed to ensure that all students
not only acquire knowledge, but will also be able to apply that knowledge in
new and practical ways as they prepare for high school and college.
As a school community, we will continue
to support your student both academically as well as behaviorally through our
Response to Intervention (RTI2).
Alongside your child’s academic instruction we will also be providing
behavioral instruction through our Olweus Anti-Bullying program along with fun
activities throughout the week to help reinforce positive behavior.
Here at Vista Verde, we are all
dedicated to help each one of our students achieve success. The teachers,
staff, and administration take pride in developing relationships with our students
so that we may better understand each student's needs. It is my personal goal to
build a strong rapport with our students and their families by being highly
active, approachable, and visible on campus. Although some students may never
get the opportunity to visit my office (this is not a bad thing), I will be
talking with students during lunches, walking through classrooms, and attending
special events. I look forward to helping your child feel safe, secure, and
successful this school year.
I am dedicated to creating a
culture where students excel, teachers inspire, and parents are proud to be a
part of Vista Verde Middle School. It is an honor to be serving the
students, parents, staff, and teachers this school year and hopefully for many
years to come.
