Prospector Senior Survey

Hello seniors! Please fill in this form https://goo.gl/forms/M2aTCxiVWwqlOcvg2 to contribute information for the Prospector's senior issue!

Posted by: Erin Song Published:5/23/17
Audience: Homepage


Attention Seniors and Anyone Leaving the District - Your Google Account DOES NOT Graduate With You!

Your Google Account DOES NOT Graduate With You!

 

If you are not returning to FUHSD next year, your FUHSD Google accounts will be deactivated on June 30th.  

(if you will be back next year, i.e. you are a 9-11th grader who will still be attending an FUHSD school next year, your account WILL NOT be deactivated)

 

If you would like to keep any work or content from your account, you must transfer or archive it.

  • To archive your fuhsd account and have it stored in a zip folder, use "Google Takeout". Watch this video to see how to use it: https://youtu.be/axOmPboi03U 
  • Here are the written instructions with the link to use "Google Takeout": 

In addition to archiving you account using "Google Takeout", you can try doing "Google Transfer". When this works, it is the nicest way to get your account migrated over to a personal account. There have been some issues with using it, so if you are worried that it isn't working, use "Google Takeout" too!

 

Here are the instructions for how to use "Google Transfer":

If you are having problems with "Google Transfer", use "Google TAKEOUT" instead or in addition. This will ensure you get your info one way or another.

 

 See Ms. McLeod in the library BEFORE June 2nd if you have any questions or problems.

Library Computer Lab Closure

Dear Students and Parents,

 

The library computer lab is going to be closed for the first 2 weeks of January because we are getting new computers. 

 

During this time, students will be able to check out Chromebooks from the library to use during lunch and brunch or their open class periods, but remember, there are only 20 Chromebooks and the Chromebooks are not able to print.

 

If students need to print, they will be able to use the Mac Lab, and during tutorial, they can use the Computer Lab 307.

 

Please plan accordingly, and remember to print your work out before the day it is due.

 

We apologize for the inconvenience, but this is the only time available for putting in the new computers. Please bear with us.

Limited Student Parking Areas

Due to our ongoing campus construction, student parking is now limited to the pool lot. In the pool lot, half the pool side row is reserved for staff parking only. 

 

Any student parking in the Staff Parking Lot, the Band Parking Lot, or the reserved Staff Parking in the Pool Lot will be ticketed by Code Enforcement and may receive a school discipline consequence. 

 

Construction is impacting us all; thanks for being patient and arriving early to avoid parking issues.

Parking Permits- Last call/warning

Student drivers,

 

I just placed the 2nd reminder on cars in both the pool and band parking lots about parking permits. If you park on campus, you are required to have a permit. Permits are available for purchase in the ASB office. 

 

This will be my LAST warning, as I will call code enforcement next week to ticket cars without permits.

 

In addition, it is very difficult to monitor the visitor spots, but I am kindly asking all of you to respect the visitor spots in the pool lot. Please refrain from parking in those valuable spots. 

 

Thank you,

Mr. Walczak

Student Wellness Survey

Dear Cupertino parents,

 

The Fremont Union High School District is gathering feedback about student experiences and lifestyle habits related to school by surveying all students in grades 10 – 12, their parents, and all staff.

The defined problem being investigated is that: “Students struggle with school-life balance, stress, and sleep deprivation.” Your input is essential to our district and we appreciate your thoughtful responses. 

 

This survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

All responses will remain anonymous.
The survey is provided in English, Spanish and Mandarin.
Summary results will be shared with students, staff, and parents in January 2017.

 

The Community Taskforce on Student Wellness will make recommendations to the FUHSD Board of Trustees based on responses to this survey.

 

Please click on the link below to complete the survey.


Thank you so much for your participation,

Senior Shirts

Hey 2017! Senior Shirt order forms are now available at tinyurl.com/2017SeniorShirts, and they cost $6 each! Forms/moneyare due FRIDAY, 9/2, to a council member!

 

Keep in mind that senior shirts are not the same thing as class apparel. We are not making profit off senior shirts (class apparel is a fundraiser). These will be a part of the costume for our Homecoming group dance and we'll wear them to future rallies. They're also something you can wear in general to show your class spirit and will help set us apart from the other classes, so I highly encourage everyone to buy one!

Parent Help Needed (all grades) - Grad Night 2016

Dear Parents of Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors,

 

The CHS Grad Night Committee has been working all year to plan the party of a lifetime for our graduating students and now we need to ask your help in bringing our vision to life.  

 

Please visit the following link to review the many opportunities available starting a few days before the party and ending with clean up the following morning: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e45a8a922ab9-2016

 

Working with our 2016 Chairs, Kim Zea and Carrie Reichenberger, volunteers are needed to:

 

Decorate with Michelle Riess and Chris Jacobs

Prepare food with Elena Herrera

Set-up the day of the event with the committee - Strong backs welcome and needed!

Check-in students as they arrive at the party with Vandana Agarwal

Secure jackets, yearbooks and assorted stuff in coat check with Illa Mistry

Run a carnival game with Nancy Boyle

Deal cards or spin the wheel in our casino with Ione Yuen

Call boxer bingo with Ione Yuen

Oversee mini-golf with Randy Martin

Staff the prize booth with Emilie Ho

Float where needed with Jenny Martin

Secure the emergency exits with Pete Hernandez

Clean-up and pack away with Myoung Kang, Nancy Boyle and Roya Erfan

 

Training and direction will be provided.  No experience necessary for any task!

 

Your student doesn't want you at the party?  No worries.  Many opportunities are available before the party, behind the scenes during the party, and with clean-up after the party.  And since volunteering is always more fun with friends, be sure to invite other CHS parents to join you.

 

Your family doesn't include a member of the graduating class?  The same is true for many members of the committee!  But the only way to plan a great party when your son or daughter graduates is to volunteer now and learn what it's all about.  And when your child graduates you will be be able to enjoy the ceremony knowing  parents of younger children are attending to all the last minute details.  

 

More than 200 students have already purchased tickets for the 2016 party but if your senior has yet to do so, visit the Grad Night web page for more information.

 

Questions about volunteering?  Contact Jenny Martin at rgmjlm@pacbell.net.

 

Please go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e45a8a922ab9-2016 to choose a volunteer job or two and be a part of making this party one our kids will remember.

 

Thank you,

Senior Checkout and Early Yearbook Distribution

Dear Seniors,

 

The past four years have passed so quickly - it seems like just yesterday you were arriving for freshmen orientation. Friday is senior checkout and we are only eight days away from your high school graduation!

 

NEW FOR 2016 - SENIOR YEARBOOKS WILL BE DISTRIBUTED EARLY AS PART OF THE CHECKOUT PROCESS.

 

Checkout instructions:

  1. Distribution of Senior Checkout Cards:
    • Seniors with a 7th period - report to your 7th period class at 9:35 a.m. on Friday to pick up your checkout card and have it signed by your teacher.
    • Seniors who have a 1st period but no 7th period - checkout cards will be distributed in your 1st period class Friday beginning at 9:55 a.m.
    • If you do not have a 1st period class or a 7th period class, you will pickup your checkout card outside the College and Career Center beginning at 9:45, before the start of 2nd period.
  2. You must attend all of your classes on Friday and you must stay for the entire period. Each of your teachers will sign your checkout card indicating whether or not you passed the class and if you have returned your book.
  3. If you do not have any delinquencies with the library or ASB, and if you have completed your senior exit survey on Naviance, your checkout card will already be signed by Mrs. McLeod/Mrs. Fratus, Mrs. Balga and Ms. Arranaga.
  4. If you have a delinquency and/or you have not completed your senior exit survey, you will not have all the necessary signatures. You will need to clear the delinquency and/or complete the exit survey and have your checkout card signed in the library, ASB office and/or the College and Career Center.
  5. After your last class of the day (no earlier than 1:15), you will bring your completed checkout card to the Wagon Wheel (enter through the doors on the quad side of the building) where you will complete checkout. Students who have not completed their last class of the day will be sent back to class so please do not arrive early.
  6. If you purchased a yearbook and/or cap and gown you will pick them up after completing checkout. You will also receive your cumulative file containing all your school records.

All seniors must complete the checkout process regardless of graduation status.

 

We look forward to celebrating with you next week and we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

PIEOLOGY FUNDRAISER 12-8 PM ON WEDNESDAY, 5/18

HI EVERYONE! Friends for Philippines is holding a fundraiser at Pieology THIS Wednesday, from 12:00pm-8:00pm. So grab your friends and family, and come out to enjoy delicious, customized pizza for a great cause! To participate, show the attached flyer or mention "Friends for Philippines" at the register :)

 

A little about Friends for Philippines:

 

The Friends for Philippines team is a group of 12 high school students who have the great privilege of going to the Philippines to serve as student volunteers and care for underrepresented people on a medical mission trip. Our team is partnering with ABC’s for Global Health, a non-profit organization co-founded by Dr. Julieta Gabiola, a Clinical Associate at the Stanford School of Medicine. Our mission is to deliver health care straight to the people of the Philippines living in poverty and to collaborate with existing fixed health centers and outreach programs to ensure continuity and sustainability.

As a group, we will be traveling with a mobile health clinic van and providing health care services to Pampanga, a large rural district north of Manila. We will also be leading 3 research projects in the Philippines regarding a medical records database system, dental hygiene, and nutritional science. Over the course of leading our own projects, we hope to personally have an impact and see the difference we make in the lives of people that we serve.

The funds raised will go toward buying medical supplies, preparing care packages, assisting team members financially, and supporting ABC’s for Global Health. Thank you so much for supporting us!!

This Friday we celebrate our own!  Four graduates of CHS who have been significant contributors to their community will be honored and feted in the Hall of Fame rally, a tradition almost 40 years old.  Students get a chance to hear some inspiring life stories.  This year, we're recognizing two of our current staff as well as two local heroes:  Nancy Boyle, Susan Rocha, Alex Pavlovic, and Raul Peralez.   Classes will be shorter prior to the assembly.  If students come to the rally and give a warm 'Tino welcome to our honorees, then classes will be dismissed after the rally.  Expect students to be released at 12:50 pm.

Parent Help Needed: Grad Night 2016

May 16, 2016

 

Dear CHS Parent Community,

 

Please join us in celebrating the CHS graduating class of 2016!  In just a few short weeks these young men and women will be moving forward with their lives after high school and we want to give them a grand send off.  How can you help?  Please sign up to work one or more (!) shifts before, during or after their Grad Night Party.  Everybody is welcome and needed.  Parents of younger students are needed particularly in the hours before the party to allow parents of seniors to enjoy the graduation ceremony.  Volunteering parents will get a glimpse of the party that awaits their student when s/he graduates.  Best of all… we have fun too!  Several alumni parents return to volunteer year after year because they enjoy being a part of this wonderful event.  Your student shouldn't miss out and neither should you!

 

While many people have already volunteered there are still opportunities to help…

 

Before the party:

Assist with creating and setting up decorations to fill the cafeteria, quad and other spaces.

Help set up games, mini-golf, booths.

Prep food to feed our hungry guests.

 

During the party:

Run a carnival game, oversee mini-golf, deal cards in the casino, staff a booth, prep and serve food.

 

After the party:

Clean up!  It's not glamorous but it’s a wonderful way to contribute to the success of the party!  You will be thanked endlessly by the tired volunteers who stayed up all night to ensure the kids had a fun, safe graduation celebration. 

 

Training and direction will be provided.  No experience necessary for any task.  Team leads will be working beside you!

 

Want to help but need more flexibility in terms of days and times?  New opportunities have just opened up!   

 

Please contact our Food Chair, Elena Herrera at elenaherrera@yahoo.com to volunteer and to receive detailed instructions about these jobs:

 

Run errands/shop - Pick up supplies starting one to two weeks before the party.

Cook/bake - Cook and/or bake in the days just prior to the party.

Pick up donations - Pick up food donations from local restaurants and businesses the day of the party.

 

Donations of food are also welcome but please contact Elena to find out what’s needed to round out the menu.

 

Really want to help but just can’t fit it in?  Donating gift cards for the prize room is a wonderful way to contribute to the success of the party.  Cards in denominations from $5 to $25 to Starbucks, Nektar, Target or the business of your choice are welcome.  Place in an envelope labeled Grad Night and drop off in the office at CHS.

 

Questions?  Please ask!  We have all types of jobs including several that only involve sitting.  (Most of us are good at that!)  Contact Jenny Martin at rgmjlm@pacbell.net and let me help find the right job for you. 

 

Please visit http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e45a8a922ab9-2016 to review all the opportunities and to sign up for one or more volunteer slots.

 

Sincerely,

Jenny Martin

The Prospector: Race discussion in Cupertino

As The Prospector promised in our April Fool's Response (http://tinyurl.com/prospector-response) earlier this month, we are beginning our online series to discuss the role of race in our community. 
We would like to invite you to speak with us about your experiences with race, whether that be through your unique upbringing, interactions with people of other races/ethnicities, or the way racial differences and similarities have affected you. We believe that no one person's voice can represent the experiences of a single ethnic group and so we would like to hear from as many of you as possible. 
Even if you do not believe that race has been a significant influence in your life, we would like to hear your story. 
If you would like to be a part of this conversation, we invite you to fill out this form with your contact information: http://goo.gl/forms/8vrgznjs3i

 

Regards,
The Prospector

Other Volunteer Opportunities:

 

District Art Show

Ms. Cunningham, CHS art department chair, is looking for a volunteer to watch over the District Art Show during the Cupertino High School shift on Wed. April 20th from 3:00 – 6:30pm at Vallco Mall.  (This is a multi-day annual art show that displays work from throughout the district, each school staffs one shift.) This is an easy job, you just need to be there to watch over the items on display. This might also be a fun thing to do with a friend, so two people could sign up together if you would like.

 

If you can help, please sign up here: http://vols.pt/HyyK6R or email Michelle Riess:  mailto:michelle.riess@comcast.net

 

Blood Drive

The SPRING Blood Drive is coming up Monday, April 25.  The school and Stanford Blood Center are looking for 2 parent volunteers to assist in the canteen area.

Info from the Stanford Blood Center coordinator: The volunteers would be trained to be post-donation hosts in our canteen.  They will be watching over the student volunteers who are providing snacks & fluids to the students after their donation and watch them for 15-20 minutes for reactions (a donor feeling faint or woozy, etc.).  They would also be available to step in and fill any gaps in the student shifts.

 

Ideally, we would like 2 volunteers to work the entire shift. with a short 30 minute training/Q&A in advance (to be arranged upon convenience to the volunteers).  Alternately, if we do not have volunteers to work the entire shift, we would split it into two shifts.

 

If you can help, please sign up here:  http://vols.pt/HyyK6R or email Michelle Riess:  mailto:michelle.riess@comcast.net.

 

Staff Lunch

On Thursday, May 5th the PTSA will have a Cinco de Mayo Lunch for the staff.  Please consider contributing to this event.  We will be sending out an email later this month.

Global Glimpse: The Counter Fundraiser

Nine Cupertino High School juniors have been given the opportunity to study abroad in the developing countries of Nicaragua or the Dominican Republic for three weeks this summer as a part of the national Global Glimpse program. We will be participating in leadership, global education, and service learning programs there and bringing back our knowledge to better the community here. However, in order to have all of us partake in this wonderful opportunity, we need to raise some funds to do so.

Just pick up a flyer around school bulletin boards after spring break or print out a copy of the attached flyer and enjoy a juicy burger to help out with our cause!

Citizens Advisory Committee

Fremont Union High School District – home to Cupertino, Fremont, Homestead, Lynbrook, and Monta Vista High Schools – closely monitors student enrollment projections in order to best prepare for facilities, staffing, and course offerings for FUHSD students.  Current projections indicate that while enrollment at most of the high schools is increasing, at Lynbrook High School student enrollment continues to decline.  More information about this matter can be found athttp://www.fuhsd.org/AttendanceAreaInfo.

 

FUHSD Superintendent Polly Bove has created a Superintendent's ad hoc Citizens Advisory Committee on enrollment.  The purpose of this committee is to study the enrollment needs of FUHSD and all its aspects, and to provide a report and findings in order for the FUHSD Board of Trustees to make decisions for implementation in the 2017-2018 school year.  This committee will meet independently from the Board of Trustees and have an independent facilitator.  For additional information about the Citizens Advisory Committee, and to download an application, please visithttp://www.fuhsd.org/CitizensAdvisoryCommittee

Honoring Our Own at CHS

Dear Cupertino High Community Members,


The PTSA needs your help to identify individuals whose contributions to the CHS community are worthy of recognition. Perhaps you know of a teacher, staff member, or parent whose tireless effort on behalf of the students happens mostly behind the scenes or goes largely unnoticed by others. Maybe you are aware of an advisor, coach or mentor who has a positive impact on the lives of Cupertino students.

This year, the PTSA will host a community event on our campus to honor a group of amazing volunteers. We need your input -- we want to know who the individuals are that make a difference in your students’ lives!

Please forward your nominations to TinoHonor@gmail.com April 5. Include the nominee’s name, a brief paragraph explaining the nomination, your name and contact information. We plan to have a ceremony on April 26th to distribute the awards and hear a few words about our recipients.

 

Thank you in advance for your help!

UPDATED: California Lawsuit Affects Release of Student Data — Objection Form Available

Updated (2/25/17)

 

A recent lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) is impacting all students who have attended any California school since 2008, including those students who attended the Fremont Union High School District. The case has received significant attention from the media and we want to provide you with more information on how it might affect families in our District.


In April 2012, two organizations — the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association — filed a lawsuit against the CDE alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The Fremont Union High School District was not involved in the lawsuit and is not the subject of any of the suit’s allegations. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.

Nonetheless as a part of this lawsuit, and in order to prove their claims, Plaintiffs have requested that the CDE disclose, subject to a Protective Order, information that it stores on databases and network drives that contain protected personal information of children, including children with disabilities, children who requested an assessment or who were assessed for special education eligibility, and children who are attending, or who have attended, a California school at any time since January 1, 2008. Examples of information that is stored on CDE’s databases and network drives includes name, social security number, home address, demographics, course information, statewide assessment results, teacher demographics, program information, behavior and discipline information, progress reports, special education assessment plans, special education assessments/evaluations, Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), records pertaining to health, mental health and medical information, student statewide identifiers, attendance statistics, information on suspensions and expulsions, and results on state tests. Please note that a social security number is not information the FUHSD collects unless voluntarily provided by you.

Parents (and students who are 18 years of age or older) may object to the disclosure of student information and records. Click here for more information about the court case and the opt-out form which must be filed by April 1, 2016.

Click here for the form in Mandarin

Click here for the form in Spanish

The Fremont Union High School District goes to great lengths to protect our student's personal information. We will continue to update our website as we learn more.

Special Speaker Event - Julie Lythcott-Haims 

We are delighted to welcome Julie Lythcott-Haims to speak with our community!

Dean Julie, as she was known at Stanford, will speak to CHS students earlier in the day; we encourage parents to come and hear what she has to say.

Book Drive for Children Around the World

Screen Shot 2016-02-03 at 3.35.34 PM.png
 

CHS student Khushi C. Valia is holding a book drive to send books directly to charities such as Unicef or Goodwill. These organizations will distribute these books worldwide to children around the world with a lack of books. In many countries, there is a lack of literacy standards, especially towards females and children. In these countries with low literacy rates, the books will be sent to the civilians to read and improve. 

 

There will be a box in some classrooms meant for collecting the books.

These boxes are located in:

  • Mr. Morgan's room 114,
  • Mr. Coleman's room 115,
  • Mrs. Cunningham's room 815,
  • Mademoiselle Rochoux's room 318,
  • and in Ms. Robert's class 412.

The books will be collected at 3:30 after school on Wednesday, February 10. ​

 

Please donate gently used books or new books. The books should be school appropriate and legible, with a firm binding. 

Please ask your teachers if they are willing to hold a box in their classrooms for collecting the books.

Parking Permits Required for Student Parking

Drivers/parents/CHS community,

 

In order for students to park on campus they must have a current parking permit for the 2015-16 school year. I have been out to the parking lot 3 times in the last week putting reminders on cars, and today, I still had 20+ cars without the proper permits. Permits are available for purchase in ASB with Ms. Balga.

 

Cars without permits are subject to a citation by the Cupertino code enforcement. There are a lot of new drivers on campus, and I would not want students to receive tickets; however, I have also given 3 warnings.

 

Thank you,

Mr. Walczak

IMPORTANT: PSAT Update!

Attention 'Tino Students!

 

Your PSAT scores are now available online! To access your score report, please visit: https://studentscores.collegeboard.org/home?affiliateId=cbhomeinit&bannerId=PSATscores-Slot1

 

If you're unable to access your PSAT scores, please try these troubleshooting tips:

  1. Obtain your access code. If you do not know this, codes are posted in the Guidance office hallway and the College and Career Center windows.
  2. If entering your access code doesn’t work, then select the other option to input your CHS student ID.
  3. If neither of these help, please verify that your student name and date of birth are correct. If you previously created a College Board account, the name you bubbled on your PSAT exam must match the name you entered when you created your College Board account. Example: College Board account name is, "Elizabeth", PSAT bubble name is, “Beth”.
  4. While CHS wants to support all of our students, there are numerous situations that ONLY College Board can address.
    • Missing test score
    • Names not matching
    • Misspelling of a name
    • Proctoring concerns
    • Errors in completing information section on test
    • Qualification for NMSQT concerns
  5. If after attempting steps 1-3, you are still unable to access your scores, you MUST contact College Board directly at: 1-866-433-7728

***Please note that the changes and implementation of College Board’s new PSAT has resulted in numerous questions nationwide. Unfortunately, College Board in inundated with numerous calls at this time, so please be patient.

 

***As a last resort, CHS is expecting paper score copies for all students in February. These will become available  

 

If you need help understanding your scores, please watch CollegeBoard's YouTube video below.

FUHSD Board Approves Enrollment Plan for the 2016-2017 School Year

On January 12, 2016 the FUHSD Board of Trustees met at Fremont High School and on the meeting agenda was an item for the ‘Approval of the 2016-2017 Enrollment Plan for Lynbrook High School.’  This was the first opportunity for the Board of Trustees to deliberate about FUHSD efforts to stabilize enrollment at Lynbrook High School in order to maintain Lynbrook’s extensive course and extra curricular options that are the standard of the Fremont Union High School District.

 

At the meeting, FUHSD Superintendent Polly Bove and FUHSD Director of Business Jason Crutchfield spoke to the Board and provided information to them in response to questions that FUHSD has received from the public about this matter.  Click here to see the PowerPoint from this presentation. Tom Williams from Enrollment Projection Consultants shared details with the Board about enrollment projections for the five FUHSD high schools. Click here to see Mr. Williams’ PowerPoint presentation.

 

Following the presentation and prior to the public comments portion of the meeting, Trustee Nancy Newton put forward a proposal in the spirit of the need for the community to heal.  She shared that without any malicious intentions, the FUHSD staff proposal has put students and teachers in the middle of an awkward fight and controversy.  Ms. Newton confirmed that she does not want her proposal to be interpreted as giving into the bad behavior of some people in the community.  That being said, Ms. Newton proposed the formation of a Districtwide citizen's advisory committee to look at FUHSD enrollment needs with the assumption that the advisory committee's findings and recommendations would be presented to the FUHSD Board of Trustees for the Board’s consideration and approval for implementation in the 2017-2018 school year.  Until that time, she suggested that FUHSD postpone all other attempts to stabilize enrollment at Lynbrook High School with the possible exception of a consideration that current 8th graders at Miller Middle School who do not reside in the LHS attendance area could attend Lynbrook High School in the 2016-2017 school year.  

 

Ms. Newton asked FUHSD Superintendent Polly Bove to comment about the economic feasibility of such a proposal.  Ms. Bove suggested that for the next school year it would be possible to backfill the costs of retaining the current staff level and funding the courses at Lynbrook that would otherwise be reduced for the 2016-2017 school year.

 

Sixteen members of the community shared their comments, recommendations, and opinions with the Board during the public comment section of the meeting.  

 

Following the public comment section, Board members shared their opinions about FUHSD efforts to stabilize enrollment at Lynbrook and engaged in an extensive conversation about the wisdom of and questions related to different approaches. A motion was made by Hung Wei and seconded by Barbara Nunes and amendments were added to the original motion resulting in the following updated motion that was amended by Ms. Wei and seconded by Ms. Nunes:

 

For the 2016-2017 school year Miller Middle School 8th grade students whose resident school is not Lynbrook High School, but are currently residing within the Fremont Union High School District will have the choice to attend LHS for their 4 years of high school; siblings would have the option to attend LHS as well.

 

To form a district-wide citizen's advisory committee to study the enrollment needs of the district and all its aspects to provide a report and findings in order for the board to make decisions for implementation in the 2017-2018 school year.  

 

For the 2016-2017 school year LHS programs will remain whole.

 

The Board deliberated about the motion and subsequently voted 5-0 in favor of the motion.  

 

Following the vote, the Board shared their appreciation to the community for their interest in this matter.  Board members also articulated their vision and hope that in the future there would be a greater spirit of collaboration and partnership so that the community and FUHSD could work closer together in support of our students and staff members.

Special Event – “How to Raise an Adult,” Tuesday, Feb. 23rd, 7:00pm

Cupertino High School Parents - a note from our principal:

We are delighted to welcome Julie Lythcott-Haims to speak with our community! In her recently-published book, How to Raise an Adult, Ms. Lythcott-Haims draws on research, on conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and on her own insights as a mother and as a student dean to offer practical strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success. Dean Julie, as she was known at Stanford, will speak to CHS students earlier in the day; we encourage parents to come and hear what she has to say.

Update on FUHSD Efforts to Stabilize Enrollment at Lynbrook for the 2016-2017 School Year

Greetings, All, 

 

As you may know, a special meeting of the FUHSD Board of Trustees has been scheduled at the Lynbrook High School auditorium on Saturday, January 9 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.  The purpose of the meeting is to share new enrollment projections with the FUHSD Board and community, to discuss ways to maintain Lynbrook High School’s student enrollment, and to provide an opportunity for the Board to hear from community members.  All members of the public – and especially FUHSD staff members -- are welcome to attend this meeting and if your schedule permits I hope that you will be able to join us.  

 

Attached is the full recommendation that will be presented to the Board at Trustees at the January 9 meeting and here is a brief summary of that proposal:

  1. Offer families in the John Mise Park area (which is currently in the CHS attendance area) the option to send their student to either Cupertino High School or Lynbrook High School
  2. Offer a Districtwide open enrollment/lottery to complete the number of students needed to maintain Lynbrook’s current programs

Even though this is a one-year proposal, if the recommendation is approved by the Board then siblings of families who choose to attend Lynbrook for the 2016-2017 school year based on either of the two options may also attend Lynbrook in the future.  This meets the Board’s desire to ensure that families have the option to remain in the same school.  In addition, as has always been the case, all students who reside in the Lynbrook High School attendance area are guaranteed the opportunity to attend Lynbrook High School.  

 

No boundary change or permanent change is being proposed by FUHSD staff members.  We anticipate that the FUHSD Board of Trustees will make a decision about this matter at the January 12 meeting scheduled to begin no earlier than 6:15 pm at the Fremont High School auditorium.

 

The staff recommendation, including the latest Enrollment Projection Consultants report and a map detailing the John Mise Park area, has been uploaded to the FUHSD website (http://www.fuhsd.org/AttendanceAreaInfo).  The information will also soon be added to the Lynbrook High School and Cupertino High School websites.  The video of the FUHSD presentation at the January 9 meeting will also be added to this website. 

 

Like you, we want to keep all FUHSD schools strong and robust and schools that continue to offer many opportunities and choices to our students, and to our staff members.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can provide you with any additional information about this matter. 

 

Warm regards,

Congressional App Challenge

Hey 'Tino!

 

Are you interested in coding or computer science? If so, this might be something of your interest!

 

Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, the Congressional App Challenge competition is a nationwide event intended to engage students’ creativity and encourage their participation in STEM fields. This competition allows students to compete with peers in their own district by creating and exhibiting mobile software applications on a platform of their choice.

 

Interested students may compete as individuals or in teams of up to four. Students entering the competition must submit their app’s source code online by midnight on January 15, 2016 EST, as well as provide a video demo explaining their app and what they learned through this competition process.

 

The apps will be judged by a panel of local judges made up of academics, entrepreneurs, and software engineers. The winning app in each participating congressional district will be featured on the U.S. House of Representatives’ website (www.house.gov), and displayed in a U.S. Capitol exhibit.

 

For additional details, you can view the attached flyer or visit the following:  www.congressionalappchallenge.us or https://honda.house.gov/

Students: Your Ideas Needed

The teen center is a place basically unheard of by most teens, even though that's who it's most meant for. There's plenty of good reasons for this. There's not many activites there, activities that happen are never advertised, and it's literally underneath another building. Seriously, it's under the sports center across from de anza.

 

As a teen commission, we took notice to this rather quickly. What we want to do is open up a new teen center so that teens have more than just the library for places that they can go to relax. There's one big problem though. We don't know where the teens want a teen center, and what would make it popular.

 

Because of this, we have established a small survey for the teens of this city so we can get their direct feedback on what would be. It would really help us accomplish our goal of getting the teens together and helping us destress.  

 

Please fill out the survey and let us know what you think!

Silence. That's all the student body of Charles M. Russell High School hear when they wake up one day, because everyone else in Great Falls has completely vanished.

People go missing, cars are stolen, buildings are burned down and a government rises.

It's looking like the end of the world. So why not have a prom?

The play was written by Sean Abley and is directed at the Cupertino Actors Theatre by Arcadia Conrad with Tyler Pardini.

See it November 6th, 7th, 13th and 14th, 2015.

Thank you!

Dear CHS PTSA,

 

The students and staff of Cupertino would like to thank you for your recent grants that have allowed us to solve a few dilemmas.    Thanks to your generosity, we've hired two crossing guards who help keep everyone safe during the morning arrival traffic jam.  We have new bike racks to encourage more students to ride to school--and stay off the road.  We've ordered a large scale projector and screen for the gym which will allow us to use it more effectively as a meeting space for large groups.  We've continued our commitment to Challenge Success, an organization dedicated to helping us raise healthy and well-balanced teens.  Additionally, we've stocked up on necessary school supplies so that students in need might have what's required for classes.  All of these projects--and much more--have been funded by donations to our school Parent Teacher Student Association. 

 

If you haven't yet had the opportunity to donate funds this year, imagine what else we can do!  Your help is critical in reaching beyond our school budgets.

As always, with Pioneer Pride,

 

Kami

Drug and Alcohol Awareness

Parents,

Would you be able to recognize the signs if your son/daughter was under the influence of drugs or alcohol?

Do you know the ramifications for teens who use these substances?

Do you know what drugs look like or how much they cost?

Each year, CHS administrators are surprised and disappointed when we encounter students under the influence and their parents are often surprised as well when we call with the details. 

Don't just think "not my child." Educate yourself so you are aware and prepared should drug and alcohol use/abuse becomes a problem for your family.

Come and hear from our local Sheriff on this important topic on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. in the Cupertino High School Cafeteria. 

To reserve a spot, please register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/drug-and-alcohol-awareness-tickets-18391710100
