August- 2018


Greetings Families of Solano Middle School,

My name is Shayla Bowman and I am the proud principal of Solano Middle School. This is my 4th year being principal and I am looking forward to another great year at Solano Middle School. It is my privilege and honor to be a part of the Solano Middle School community.  I am looking forward to an exciting year of teaching and learning for our students, working with our professional staff, our parents and community members. 


One of my goals is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. Another goal for the upcoming school year will be working together as a team with our staff and parents. I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best.  Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort. Another goal would be to raise the awareness level of parents and community members of two very important educational reforms: Common Core and California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade.  The CAASPP is used as a tool that will be used to assess students using computers as a sole means of test taking.


In order to achieve the above mentioned goals, one of the most important aspects of my work as Solano Middle School’s principal is building solid relationships with students, families and staff. I am very passionate about the middle school years.  All of my administrative experience has been working with students and staff of this age group.  This is an important and critical time of transition – moving from the elementary experience and preparing for the bigger challenge of high school and beyond. What happens during these few short years will have a lasting impression on students’ development and growth.


In addition to building strong relationships with all of you, I look forward to meeting with you to develop a strong discipline and safety plan to ensure your students’ success at Solano Middle School. It will be particularly important to me to make sure that your child and you feel safe at school. If you ever have a concern about something or a question about a specific situation or procedure, please do not hesitate to contact me. Communication is paramount in a school.


 The Solano Middle School community has several different avenues of which school and home can work in partnership. Our main communication is our Aeries Parent Portal connections. Parents will have access to teachers, student assignments and attendance on a daily basis. We encourage parents and students to access this resource daily. Our Parent Liaison, Mark Victa will schedule future trainings for parents throughout the school year. In additions to our Parent Portal, regular phone calls and emails will be made sharing important information. Check out our school website and our Facebook page (Solano Middle School Titans) for resources and announcements.


  Again, welcome and I look forward to serving as your principal and partnering with you as we continue to make Solano Middle School a great place for all students to grow and experience academic success.
