October 16, 2013
Dear Bobcat Nation,
We are over the halfway mark of our first trimester and progress reports will be distributed this Friday during your student's 5th period class. As a direct link to the distribution of the progress reports, students began to define self-created goals for the 2013-14 academic year. Students used the S.M.A.R.T. goal format and used their advisory periods on Wednesday (10/9) and Wednesday (10/16) to work with their advisory teacher to understand the importance of writing down attainable goals.
I encourage you to discuss the goals with your student and to preview both the short video our students watched on the S.M.A.R.T. goal format along with the worksheet they used to formalize their goals.

Mira Costa College to Offer Classes at SCHS
Carlsbad Unified School District students will have a great opportunity to take college courses at Sage Creek with the newly formed partnership with Mira Costa College. The goal is to offer a total of 5-6 classes beginning January 13, 2014, and the Mira Costa College administration is exploring courses in the areas of communications, English, mathematics, Spanish, music history (perhaps the history of rock ‘n’ roll), geology and film. Classes will not take place during the regular school day for Sage Creek students and will be programmed between 4-9 p.m.
Under the partnership agreement, MiraCosta College will waive enrollment fees for all concurrently enrolled Carlsbad Unified students taking courses from MiraCosta College, whether at Sage Creek or at MiraCosta College’s campuses in Oceanside and San Elijo. Additionally, Mira Costa College will provide evening security and insurance costs while college courses are taking place.

To be clear, the Sage Creek staff will not release a student to anyone not listed on the emergence contact list, even if a parent or adult who is listed as an emergency contact calls is in trying to designate someone else (who is not on the emergency contact list) to pick up.
STUDENTS WILL ONLY BE RELEASED TO THOSE LISTED AS AN EMERGENCY CONTACT
