“PUSH YOUR SHELF”

PUSH YOUR SHELF!

a joyful summer reading program for every Pioneer

 

ABOUT

The PUSH YOUR SHELF reading program is a social, communal reading project centered around the idea of one book, one campus.  The goal is to encourage everyone in our Pioneer community--students of every grade level, teachers of every subject, staff members, administrators, parents, neighbors alike--to engage in the joy of reading each summer and share their reading experience via social media, both as a form of accountability and a form of encouragement within our community.  Whether we read alone or read together, we know that communal commitment to reading always reminds us of the power of stories to bring communities closer.  Join our reading community and PUSH YOUR SHELF this summer!

 

 

With these goals in mind, we invite you to join us in reading the 2018 book selection!

7.30-8.30pm – “All Grown Up: What Worked, What Didn't.” 

A Panel discussion for parents and students tackling the question of what to do after high school, as they rapidly speed towards expensive decisions, often with little real knowledge of what is expected of young adults entering the job market. There are many misconceptions today on what you need for success.

Teen Mental Health Presentation for Parents

Dear Parents,

 

In connection with our ongoing support of student mental wellness and pursuant to Education Code 215, as added by Assembly Bill 2246, the District is adding supports to our practice addressing student suicide prevention and intervention. We are also continuing the third year of our partnership with El Camino Hospital in connection with this effort.

 

For students, Dr. Glenn Teeter, who directs the Intensive Outpatient Program ASPIRE, has developed a presentation that will be delivered in an assembly across a 7-period day. This will occur at Cupertino High School on Thursday, March 8. The content of the presentation will include a strong message that suicide is preventable, information about the risk factors and warning signs, and a model for helping. The presentation will conclude by providing resources on how to get help for oneself or others. Given the sensitive nature of the topic, mental health professionals will be on campus to provide support. A copy of the presentation and community resources will be sent to all parents following the assembly day.

 

On Monday, March 5, in connection with the student assemblies on March 8, Dr. Teeter along with Dr. Kelly Troiano will present an evening for parents designed to continue to bring awareness and education to the community on teen mental wellness. Topics that will be explored are the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions, suicide prevention education, opportunities to communicate in a healthy way with our teens, insights on how your primary care doctor can support your family, and most importantly, knowing when and how to reach out for help. There will be an opportunity for Q&A.

 

Registration required. Seating is limited. Call 800-216-5556 or visit www.elcaminohospital.org/healthymindteens

 

Join us on Monday, March 5 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at CHS in the Library as we continue the conversation on teen mental health. If you have any questions about the student assembly and/or parent event, please contact Assistant Superintendent Trudy Gross at 408-522-2203 OR trudy_gross@fuhsd.org

Job Shadow Day Program 'Presentation' and 'Host' signup information

Dear Parents,

 

Thank you for attending the parent information meeting on December 12.  We are sorry that some of our parents were unable to attend due to the event being sold out.  Once we maxed out the on the location capacity, regretfully, we could not open more spots.

 

As promised the link to the entire presentation is posted below. The presentation provides information on how the program works for students, application process, host requirements, timeline and the support required from parents.

 

The purpose of the Job Shadow Day program:

  • To expose students to careers to help them gain an insight into the academic, technical, and personal skills required for jobs and give them an opportunity to make connections.

 

How the program works:

  • Parents/Community members host our students at their work place/business for a day
  • Students are placed in actual workplace settings and shadow their hosts for the day. This year the job shadow day is scheduled for Tuesday, April 24, 2018
  • Students observe the hosts in their work environment
  • Hosts share insights into their jobs with the students shadowing them – skills, job profile, facility tour where feasible.

 

How you can help:

  • Sign up to host students (groups of 2-5 students. Minimum two….no maximum limit)
  • Sign up to recruit hosts from community, net work of friends and co-workers.
  • We require a minimum of 50 hosts to start and to enable us to offer sufficient job shadow slots for students.
  • More Hosts = More slots for students 
  • Students of Parent Hosts and Recruiters get priority when job sign ups begin.

 

Links to parent presentation, signup forms for Hosts, Recruiters, letters to prospective hosts below(also included in the slides):

 

  • Job Shadow parent presentation here

Athletic Events and Practices Cancelled

To protect our student athletes and coaches from the health hazards associated with the poor air quality caused by the Napa/Sonoma fires, we are cancelling all sporting events and practices for the weekend of October 13-15.  Coaches will be looking to reschedule games as possible.  We will play our football game against Santa Clara in the week after the season would have ended. 

 

While we are deeply disappointed to have to cancel games, we are grateful to be dealing with disappointment rather than devastation.

 

Rest up!  We'll keep everyone up-to-date on further developments and send positive thoughts to our friends in the North Bay.

Tournament of Bands cancelled

I regret to inform you that the Tournament of Bands, scheduled for this Saturday, October 13th, is cancelled.  The district made the decision to protect the health of our students, guests, and community in the face of increasingly unhealthy air quality caused by the Napa and Sonoma fires.   This event will not be rescheduled this year as all the subsequent weekends in the competitive band season are already booked. 

 

While it is deeply disappointing not to be able to host our guest bands and showcase our school community, we are grateful to be dealing with disappointment rather than devastation. 

 

We look forward to seeing everyone next fall!

UNICEF Committee Apps Due Oct 20th

Hey Tino UNICEF!

 

We're proud to announce that the committee applications for the 2017-18 year are officially out! Please follow the link to the application below after THOROUGHLY reading through this, as it contains some important information regarding the logistics of the application process.

 

For those of you who were unable to attend our first two meetings of the year, here is a recap of what our committee is and how you can be selected to be a part of it. Your committee chair officers for this year are Sindu Narayanan and Uva Dasari, and they will be in charge of all aspects of the committee, from selecting the team to the planning of outreach events and organization of our fundraisers this year. 

 

The committee is a group of individuals who get selected to be a part of a special Tino UNICEF leadership team, working to promote the mission of UNICEF through the planning and execution of outreach events as well as organizing all our major fundraisers. This year, we're taking things to a new level by extending our target audience to the city of Cupertino. This means that we will be working with local schools to reach out to our community with fundraisers and outreach events. It's a great opportunity to gain some leadership experience and receive the ability to make a positive impact in the lives of many children across the world. Keep in mind, ALL MEMBERS are welcome to participate in all of our events this year, so do not feel discouraged if you are unable to be a part of the committee.

 

Remember, we want passionate individuals who seek the position solely out of the motivation to help Tino UNICEF spread its mission to our community, and not those who simply want a leadership position. Be as honest as you can in the application, and put forth your best qualities! If you have any ideas for fundraisers or outreach events this year, please briefly mention them in the online application and be prepared to present them in greater detail at your interview. Sign up forms for the interview slots will be sent out immediately after the due date for applications. REMEMBER, THE ONLINE APPLICATION IS DUE OCTOBER 20TH AT 10:59PM. Late applications will not be accepted. 

 

Questions? Comments? Concerns? 

Please reach out to your committee officers or send an email to tinounicef@gmail.com

 

Good luck applicants!

Here is the link to the application: https://goo.gl/forms/S99YcaCKjoAwshti2

 

Sincerely,

Tino UNICEF

Message about the College Fair

Dear CHS parents and families, 

 

As you may know, the 2017 FUHSD College Fair is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 21 at Fremont High School. While the District is excited to be able to continue to provide this valuable informational event to our students and parents, we are aware of the challenge that the date poses for some of our families as it falls on Rosh Hashanah. Unfortunately, FUHSD was assigned this date by the consortium of colleges that schedules college fairs throughout the state. The District did immediately request another date, however with hundreds of events being scheduled each year, we were unable to secure an alternative date and time. The only other option available was for a date in November, which would have been far too late to support our families in getting the critical information they need. 

 

Below we have provided information on several local and online college fairs which are open to the general public and which may be of interest to you and your student(s):

 

Sept. 25, 2017

The Big Virtual College Admissions Fair

10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST

To register: https://collegefair.thebigvirtual.com/national-online-college-admissions-fair-high-school-counselor-registration-and-information

NACAC Fall 2017 Silicon Valley STEM College and Career Fair

Santa Clara Convention Center

Exhibit Halls C & D

5001 Great America Parkway

Santa Clara, CA 95054

1 to 4 p.m.

To register: https://www.nacacfairs.org/attend/stem-college-and-career-fairs/silicon-valley-stem-college-and-career-fair

 

For additional information and resources, please contact your school¹s College and Career Advisor. 

 

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the conflict of the College Fair and Rosh Hashanah and we will continue to try and minimize scheduling conflicts of this nature in the future.

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.

Ticket sales and fundraising activities cover many of the expenses of Gad night party, but the success of the event each year is also largely due to the generosity of our community and businesses who donate, prizes, gift cards, food and beverages.  The more donations we can get, the more funds are available for entertainment and the more fun and exciting the event becomes. Parents play an important role in helping out these donations. If you have connections with local businesses which might be willing to contribute items to our grad night, or if you personally own a business and/or would like to contribute any of these items, please let us know by emailing us at chsgrad.prizes@gmail.com

We will take anything New that you feel that students would like to WIN at Grad night. We have donation letters with our Tax ID that we can provide to all the business that donate.

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.

        •  The total enrollment of the school, classified by gender,
        •  The number of pupils enrolled at the school who participate in competitive athletics, classified by gender, and,
        •  The number of boys and girls teams, classified by sport and competition level.

Sign up to Volunteer – “Give 2 Hours”

We encourage parents to also “Give 2 Hours” to support the school and keep the excellent programs going for our students. (And of course we gladly accept more.)

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

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,

 

2016 Grad Night Committee

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.

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

Hall of Fame on Friday, 5/20

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.

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!!

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

April Happenings from the PTSA

Hello all,

We hope everyone is well and is enjoying the last two months of school.   The year has passed by quickly.  

 

Honoring Our Volunteers

On Tuesday, April 26th from 6-7pm before our PTSA Association meeting, we will honor and recognize our volunteers for their hard work and dedication to the Cupertino High Community.  We have many people who deserve recognition and gratitude for the work that they have done.   Please RSVP if you can come:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/honoring-our-own-tickets-24240188055

 

Association Approval for our Nominations and Budget

At the PTSA Association meeting on Tuesday, April 26th at 7:00pm, we will be voting on our board and our budget for next year.  The slate is listed on our website:

https://cupertino.schoolloop.com/ptsa

 

Tino Springfest

Partnering with the ASB, the Cupertino High PTSA will be sponsoring an event for the students on April 22nd from 5:30-8:00pm.  Parent volunteers will be needed to monitor the events.  If you would like to volunteer, please use this link: http://vols.pt/ogGbR3

 

Parent Education Event

The PTSA is sponsoring an event on Wednesday, April 20 for our parents on teen driving. Please sign up to attend:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/impact-driving-tickets-19581813732

 

Grant for the school

We are pleased to announce that PTSA funds will be used towards the purchase of a 2nd projector and screen for school events held in the gym.  We believe these events are community building and strengthen the spirit of our school.

 

 

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.

 

On Wednesday, April 20th, CHS Global Glimpse will be holding a fundraiser at The Counter. 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
