Parent Education Night

Club Fair - 9/8/2017



Hello Bruin Community,


We are in the ever-busy fall, when it seems like the only thing that can match our full schedule is our energetic student body.  We've had a quite success Club Fair to help students engage with their peers in meaningful ways, and we have recently passed the halfway point of the first quarter.  We have several upcoming events that I want to highlight for you.


Senior Parent Meeting:

On Wednesday at 7:00 pm in our SCHS Theater, we invite all parents of senior students to a meeting hosted by our counseling department.  The agenda will focus on how to best support your senior students as they go through this important year and prepare for college/career.  We will also be highlighting many of the memorable events that make senior year so special.  We will be hosting similar parent nights for the other classes on upcoming dates.  Junior parents will meet on October 4, sophomores on November 1, and freshmen on January 17.


DACA Information Night:

Our district strives to support all of our students and families.  For families and friends of Dreamers affected by the news about DACA, the district is hosting an information night so that people can get the most up-to-date and accurate understanding of what is going on with DACA and how. the district will be responding.  This meeting will be hosted at Scott Lane Elementary (1925 Scott Lane Blvd) on Wednesday, 9/20/17, at 6:30 pm.  Interpreters and child care will be provided.  A flyer about this event is attached.



One of the highlights of the year is upon us.  This week is our Homecoming Week.  Four important notes for families to know about include:


1) There is an alternate schedule for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  If you haven't seen the schedule yet, this schedule is listed on schoolloop.

    • Wednesday: Per 1 - 10:00-10:54 / Per 3 - 11:00-12:00 / Lunch - 12:00-12:35 / Per 5 - 12:41-1:35 / Per 7 - 1:41-2:35

    • Thursday: Use the Mon/Tue/Fri Schedule (not the normal Thursday block schedule)

    • Friday: Per 2 - 8:26-9:20 / HC Rally - 9:30-10:21 / Per 4 - 10:31-11:30 / Lunch - 11:30-12:05 / Per 6 - 12:11-1:052

2) On Thursday Night, we will be hosting Homecoming parade float building in our quad from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  The floats for our Homecoming Parade reflect the ingenuity of our students and are among the best high school floats I've ever seen.  This float building night is often as memorable as the Homecoming events themselves.  Parents are welcome to stay.  There will be a limited number of students who will be allowed to stay past 10:00 pm, and those students have to permission slips that are given by the SBO and signed by parents.  If you don't sign a slip, you should know that your student will be leaving campus no later than 10:00 pm.

3) Our Homecoming Parade starts at 1:30 pm on Friday.  We leave from the front of the school, heading toward Pomeroy Elementary.  We use El Sobrante to cross Kiely, weaving our way over to Central Park Elementary before returning to SCHS.  Passing the two elementary schools and seeing the delight on the young faces is definitely a highlight of the parade.  Typically, over 400 students (sometimes  participate in the parade, and these students all get free admission to the game that night.

4) Our actual Homecoming Ceremony follows the Frosh/Soph football game on Friday.  This typically puts us at around 6:15 or 6:30.  The varsity Homecoming game versus Gunn HS will start at 7:15 pm.  We invite all families to come out and join this festive event.


Parent Education Night:

On Wednesday, September 27 at 7:00 pm, our Wellness Center will be hosting a Parent Education Night on Teen Stress & Anxiety.  Find out more by visiting: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/parent-education-night-stress-anxiety-your-teen-tickets-37824345636


As always, I encourage parents who are on Facebook to sign up for the SCHS PTSA Facebook page.  More importantly, I encourage you to stay active in your teenager's life, communicating with them, their teachers, and others about what is going on academically, socially, and emotionally with your student.
