Get Involved and Stay Informed (04-04-2017)
Good Evening! Principal Olivero here with a school update.
This Friday, April 7th, at 7:15 am, the PTSA will be holding their monthly meeting in the media center. After this meeting, I will be holding a Principal’s chat where I will provide a school update and also answer any questions parents may have about the school, construction completion, etc. We will have Spanish translation services available for parents for these meetings.
Looking ahead, please mark your calendar for two important meetings happening Wednesday, April 12th. First, at 6 pm, in the auditorium, we are holding our underclass “College Night”. This will be an opportunity to learn about how best to prepare for what colleges are seeking from applicants, and how to start a search for the best college match for your student.
Also, this same night, April 12th, at 7 pm, all underclass current sophomores and juniors who plan to take one of our popular community college classes next year needs to attend an important meeting. This meeting will be held in the media center and we ask that all students and their parents attend who are taking a college class next year on campus. While most have completed the necessary paperwork, we need to make sure all students have their college pin number and understand what is required of them from the college and the high school.
If you know of a neighborhood student who lives in the UC community and wants to attend UC High School next year, they should plan to come to UCHS on Thursday, April 13th, from 8am to 1pm, to register for school next year. Very often we have neighborhood students who want to attend their local high school after attending private schools during the early school years.
Last, this Saturday, April 8th, UCHS is holding another Saturday Success School session. In the past, Saturday School was assigned to students as a means to make up tardies and unexcused absences. It was basically old school with students needing to bring material to remain quiet and studying for four hours in the media center. Our new Saturday Success School has a different format. Success school is not just for making up attendance issues, but also for enrichment learning opportunities for students. This Saturday students are taking a field trip to Chula Vista to check out the Living Coast Discovery Center. Students will participate in a Living Lab, dissecting fish and learning about the importance of protecting ecosystems. Any student interested needs to see Ms. Hall for a field trip form. Two weeks ago they went to a local museum and have participated in cleaning local beaches.
Have a great week and enjoy this weather while it lasts! Mr. O.
