Textbook Exchange Nov 21 & 22 - In Library from 12:20-2:30
Our SCHS trimester schedule involves a textbook exchange at the changing of trimesters (instead of keeping the same textbooks all year long).
From 12:20-2:30, on Nov 21-22, students should bring in the textbooks that they will not need for the upcoming trimester and exchange them for their 2nd Trimester books.
College & Career: The "f" Requirement
To meet the “f” requirement of the “a-g” requirements, students must complete a year-long visual and performing arts course. The courses can be from visual arts, theater, music and dance.
Click on the link below to compare the a-g requirements for the UC’s and the CSU’s.
Career Exploration through Naviance
Last week, students in PE 1-A completed in Naviance the Cluster Finder career inventory and began completing the two Exploring Career Clusters surveys. The results from these activities form the beginning of your students’ career component of their Individual Success Plans, which will be the basis of the student-parent-counselor conference in the spring.
Support your students by discussing with them the Cluster finder results and insuring they have completed the two Exploring Career Clusters surveys. Students taking PE 1-A in Trimester 2 or who are not enrolled in PE 1-A will complete this Naviance career lesson in December.
