College-Ready 7th Graders
From The Santa Cruz Sentinel (3/21/15):
"A sea change is happening in Santa Cruz County schools: Students are preparing for college at an earlier age, and the results are showing. Half of the county’s seventh-graders, 1,400 students, attended a summit on college eligibility requirements Friday at UC Santa Cruz. … In April, the rest of the county’s seventh-graders will attend a similar event at CSU Monterey Bay."
E. A. Hall MS 7th graders will be taking part in the April field trip to CSUMB, on Friday April 24. More information coming soon. Learn more about the Countywide Santa Cruz County College Commitment ("S4C"), a collaboration of educators started in 2011 and sponsored by the County Office of Education, at their website, www.sccommits.org.

Miss Olga's Mid-Year Message...
Dear Falcon Parents,
We at Edward A. Hall Middle School would like to wish all of you a wonderful Holiday Season. Please know that our vacation begins on Monday, December 22nd. Students will be excused on Friday, December 19th at 12:47; this means that this day will be a minimum day.
It is very important that you check with your student regarding any unfinished assignments. We want all of our Falcon Students to be successful and to soar academically. We strive to provide every opportunity to help your students by providing help during lunch and afterschool. Students have been much more responsible in coming to school on time, however, we still have some chronic tardies. Please help all of us by ensuring that your students come every day ready to learn and with their assignments done. Check School Loop for the latest assignments and progress for your student. If you do not know how to access this information, ask your student or come to the Parent Volunteer Center and ask Brenda Guzman to help you.
Finally, let’s welcome in the New Year, 2015, with Peace In Our Hearts! Have a wonderful family time. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated staff working at E A Hall and such kind and loving parents. See you all back on Monday, January 12th, 2015.
Olga de Santa Anna, Principal
