OFFICE HOURS & ACADEMIC COACHING
Visit Ms. Sara and Ms. Jamie after school for some support in your classes! Your teachers are also available for one on one help during office hours! Tuesdays and Thursdays during lunch is academic support in the conference room upstairs with Katelin, Jamie, and Sara! Head over there during lunch if you need some support!
MAKING PROUD CHOICES
January 7th-January 17th, 2020 is our Making Proud Choices/Health Education for 9th graders. It is mandated by the state of California. Students are required to do Health Education unless parents opt them out.
Students will come home with (or have already picked up) their syllabi for their classes. In each syllabus is a supply list for that class. Please bring the required items to class each day, or email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (your student’s Humanities teacher) if you are unable to provide the items and we will take care of it for your student.

Check in with your student’s advisor to schedule your home visit!
