Get Involved and Stay Informed (11-28-2017)
Principal Olivero here with your weekly school update.
This Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night, at 7 pm, UCHS’s Performing Arts Department will be showcasing their talents in the play, “She Kills Monsters.” All are encouraged to come out and see our young stars in action. Please visit www.ucperforming arts.org to order tickets.
This Wednesday night we will also be celebrating the “White Coat” ceremony where a record number of 79 seniors will be receiving their distinguished white coats to prepare them for their field experience in the area of medicine and health. Soon 79 white coat UCHS students will be in local hospitals observing the real-world application to what they have been learning over the last four years in the school’s highly touted Medical Science program.
This Thursday, at 2:30 pm, we will be holding an important School Site Governance Team meeting. The topics that will be discussed have potential implications for the school that all should be aware of and stakeholders are encouraged to contact their SSGT representative should they want their voice heard. Students, parents and staff are encouraged to attend the meeting as well.
The SSGT meeting will be held in the front office. The SSGT topics will be: possible new community college classes to add for elective courses for students next year; changing the school start and ending time; and ending the use of bells to start and dismiss classes.
This Friday, December 1st, at 7:15 am, the PTSA will be holding their monthly meeting in the media center. All are invited to stay involved and informed.
Next Friday, December 8th, students will receive their second progress report grades for the first semester. Please contact your student’s teachers and counselor if you have any questions about their progress.
And last, I need to share that over the Thanksgiving break, our school’s marching band and color guard competed among the very best schools in southern California. At the state competition there were 12 schools vying for the top three medal places for the championship. I am proud to announce that UCHS earned a silver medal and took second place with a school record score of 85.6. The second place finish recognized UCHS as the top marching band and color guard for all high schools in the district for all divisions. This is true for San Diego County schools as well. This was an historic season – finishing second in the state. Please congratulate our students, their parents, their coaches, and Mr. Corenman for their amazing season.
Have a great week. See you at the play or at the PTSA meeting!
