ENGLISH
What are the CAASPP results?
This summer, you should have received the results of your student California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) testing. These are the tests our students took last spring. The tests are based on the Common Core, a set of academic standards, or learning goals, for math and English that define what our students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade.
 
What do the CAASPP results mean?
The CAASPP report will show an overall score for your student in each subject, ranging from 2,000 to 3,000. This score shows if a student met, did not meet or exceeded expectations for their grade. The second page of the report includes a further breakdown of that score, providing individualized information on your student’s academic strengths and potential challenges. The report will also compare your student’s results from last spring’s test to his/her results in previous grades, if available. For more information on how to read your score report, go to: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/caasppssreports.asp
How will my child’s test results used?
The test results provide you and the school more detailed information on where your child needs more support, or where they could be accelerated in the future. You can work together with your child’s new teacher(s) and/or school administers to identify subjects where your child could improve, how you can better support your child at home, and focus on making progress in the coming school year. Testing is important, but it’s only one way to gauge how students are doing. Your child’s scores will be taken into account as part of a broader look at their academic progress.
 
Additionally, the California Department of Education will soon be releasing summaries of how our students performed as a school, district, county, and state. Once released, the summaries will be available here: http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov/. This information can be used to compare your school to other schools and to district and statewide results. It will also help to show you how your child performed on the test relative to other students. This information will also be combined with other data about our school in the state's new accountability system that will come out later this fall. The new system will provide the public with a broader set of outcome data including graduation rates, chronic absentee rates, suspension rates, English learner progress, and a measure of college and career readiness. This data dashboard will help our school in setting its priorities for the future so that we can focus on the areas of greatest need.
 
SPANISH
 
¿Qué son los resultados de CAASPP?
Este verano, usted debe haber recibido los resultados del examen estudiantil California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Estos son los exámenes que fueron administrados durante la primavera. Los exámenes son basados en Common Core, un conjunto de estándares académicos, o metas de aprendizaje en matemáticas e lenguage que definen lo que los estudiantes deben saber y ser capaces de hacer al final de cada año escolar.
 
¿Qué significan los resultados del examen CAASPP?
El reporte de CAASSPP mostrará un resumen breve de la puntuación para su estudiante en cada área de aprendizaje. La puntuación varia  2,000 a 3,000 puntos. La puntuación muestra si un estudiante alcanzo, no alcanzo, o supero las expectativas para su grado. La segunda página del reporte incluye más información sobre la puntuación que obtuvo su hijo(a), incluyendo información sobre las fortalezas académicas y áreas de desafío de su estudiante. El reporte también incluye una comparación de los  resultados de su estudiante durante esta primavera a los resultados de su hijo(a) durante años anteriores, si la información está disponible. Para más información sobre los resultados del reporte, visite: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/caasppssreports.asp
 
¿Cómo se usaran los resultados de mi hijo(a)?
Los resultados del examen le proporcionan a usted y a la escuela información más detallada sobre áreas donde su hijo(a) necesita más apoyo, o áreas donde el/ella puede acelerarse en el futuro. Usted puede trabajar junto con el maestro/a de su hijo(a) y / o los administradores de la escuela de su hijo(a) para identificar áreas donde su hijo(a) podría mejorar, estrategias para mejor apoyar a su hijo(a) en el hogar, y como progresar durante el año escolar. Los exámenes son importantes, pero son solo una manera de medir como están progresando los estudiantes. Los resultados de su hijo/a serán contados como parte de una mirada más amplia sobre su progreso académico.
 
Adicionalmente, el Departamento de Educación de California pronto publicará resúmenes de cómo nuestros estudiantes progresaron al nivel de la escuela, distrito, condado y estado. Al ser publicados, los resúmenes estarán disponibles aquí: http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov/ . Esta información se puede usar para comparar el progreso de su escuela con otras escuelas y con los resultados del distrito y del estado. También le ayudará ver los resultados de su hijo(a) en comparacion a grupos de estudiantes del mismo grado. Esta información también se combinará con otros datos sobre nuestra escuela dentro del nuevo sistema de responsabilidad del estado que saldrá en el otoño. El nuevo sistema proporcionará al público un conjunto más amplio de datos de resultados, incluyendo tasas de graduación, tasas de absentismo, tasas de suspensión, progreso de los estudiantes de inglés y una medida de preparación para la universidad y carrera. Este tablero digital de datos nos ayudará a nuestra escuela a establecer nuestras prioridades para el futuro para que podamos enfocarnos en impactar las áreas de mayor necesidad.

Estimados padres de familia,

 

Por favor tenga en cuenta el siguiente reporte de una actividad sospechosa en el área de Fourth Lane y Eucalyptus: Esta mañana unos estudiantes reportaron que ayer, jueves 9 de marzo después de la escuela y de camino a sus hogares un individuo no identificado estaba estacionado y dentro de su vehículo. El individuo comenzó a golpear la ventana de su auto y les pidió a los estudiantes que le ayudaran a abrir la puerta porque estaba atascado en el vehículo. Los estudiantes no abrieron la puerta y se alejaron corriendo del lugar. Se observó que el hombre se movió al asiento del conductor e inicio la marcha del vehículo. Ninguno de los estudiantes fue lastimado y no se acercaron de nuevo al área después de huir de la zona.

 

El incidente no ocurrió en o cerca de ninguno de nuestros centros escolares, y el hombre no ha sido identificado. La policía de South San Francisco fue inmediatamente informada y en estos momentos se encuentra investigando el caso.

 

El hombre es descrito como un hombre blanco, con sobrepeso de aproximadamente 30 a 40 años quien quizás tenga bigote. El auto se describe como una camioneta blanca que quizás haya sido un Chevy Astro Van, del modelo 2004

 

Le pedimos a los padres de familia o tutores legales que le recuerden a sus hijos estudiantes de tener precaución con los extraños y cautelosos con sus alrededores, y reportar cualquier actividad sospechosa o cualquier interacción que los haga sentirse incomodos. También les proponemos “hacerse acompañar por un amigo” tanto como sea posible cuando vengan caminando hacia la escuela o de la escuela hacia sus hogares.

 

Si tiene alguna pregunta acerca de este incidente, puede comunicarse con el departamento de policía de South San Francisco al teléfono (650) 877-8900 para más información.

Dear Parents,

Please be aware of the following report of suspicious activity in the area of Fourth Lane and Eucalyptus: This morning, students reported that yesterday, Thursday, March 9th, after school, an unidentified male individual in a vehicle was parked as the students were walking by on the way home from school. From the inside of his car, the man knocked on his car window and asked the students to open the door for him, indicating that he was stuck in the vehicle. The students did not open the door and ran away from the area. It was observed that the man moved to the driver’s seat and began to start the vehicle. The students were unharmed and were not approached again after running away from the area.

The incident did not occur on or near any of our school campuses, and the man has not yet been identified. South San Francisco Police were immediately notified and are currently investigating the encounter.

The man is described as a white male, overweight, approximately 30 to 40 years old, who may have a mustache. The vehicle is described as a white van that may have been a Chevy Astro Van, 2004 model.

We ask that parents and guardians remind their students to be cautious of strangers, to be aware of their surroundings, and to report any suspicious activity or any interactions that make them uncomfortable. We also encourage the “buddy system” as much as possible when walking to and from school.

 

Should you have any questions or information about this incident, you may contact the South San Francisco Police Department at 650-877-8900.

Congratulations to our new Robotics Club!  This is a brand new club that started Fall 2016.  They worked very hard to design a robot that could pick up a ball and toss it up into a basket!  Of February 4, the club  entered a tournament.  Here is what the president of the club, Raymond Lin, said,

" The Robotics team entered the First Tech Challenge Robotics Competition and competed at the Daly City Qualifying tournament at Jefferson High School. It took place on the 4th of February. We won two games out of five and took 19th place out of 28 teams. I'm proud of us, especially considering that it was our first ever competition."

 

Congratulations again to the new club and the members!  Thanks to Physics/Earth Science teacher, Mr. Trautman, for being the advisor of the club and thanks to one of our parents, Mr. Lieberman, who has been helping the students!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!
I understand that the Night Theme Diary Project is due next week and some people have questions on how to format this whole thing with using Microsoft Word and Google Docs along with how to submit this project. 
1) If you remember, I told you that I need a hard copy of the project. It even says it on the layout of the project as well. So PLEASE submit a hard copy of your project on the day that it is due. Everyone submit their project by next Friday, February 24th before the end of the school day. I know there is a block schedule set for that day and there is a possible guest coming into the school that Friday. So I would like everyone to submit their projects during lunch or by the end of the day. I will be leaving campus by 4PM next Friday. If it is late or you do not do the project, it will be a zero overall. 
2) In terms of typing this out, you can format perfectly in order to create the book effect. I can give you the instructions on how to approach it through Microsoft Word and Google Docs. 
- Microsoft Word: You click onto the Page Layout Icon on the top and change the Orientation. It should be changed to Landscape instead Portrait. Following that, an icon over states "Columns" in which you put in three. From there you should be able to have a column for the Theme response, one for the picture and the other for the Chapter response. 
- Google Docs: Go to file and click onto Page Setup and switch it to landscape. After that, you go to Format and click on Columns to create three columns. Same as word in appearance overall. 
If you have any questions or concerns, just e-mail me as soon as possible. I want you to be successful and creative in your theme diaries.

Financial Aid for Dream Act students remains legal in California.  The California Dream Act is a state law, separate and distinct from the federal DACA program.

 

Schools and County Education officials were sent a letter from Tom Torlakson, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Lupita Cortez Alcalá, the Executive Director of California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) regarding the DREAM Act and Student Aid in California.

 

Please see the links below for more information, and for any questions.  We've also attached the PDF file of the original letter.

 

March 2 is the priority financial aid filing deadline for most colleges and universities and the absolute deadline for submission of the Cal Grant application (CA Dream Act Application + GPA).

Congratulations to Ms. Dianna Ariani!

 

As many of you may know, Ms. Ariani teaches a Work Experience Class which includes inviting guest speakers and preparing students for the real world.  In the Winter 2016 Issue of the First National Bank Newsletter, an article was written about her.  Below is the typed article:

 

"When a Bank Truly Partners with the Community, Good Things Happen"

 

     Nobody knows this better than Dianna Ariani, who is the daughter of Romolo Ariani, one of the founding fathers of FNB.  Now a teacher at South San Francisco High School, her job is to help prepare her students for the "real world," including financial issues.  that's where FNB helps.

     Over the years her Work Experience class has included guest appearances by FNB CEO Tom McGraw, who explained the basics of finance and, perhaps more importantly, help students understand that success is possible even when the path may not be clear.

     "Tom's career path wasn't typical for finance," Ariani said, noting that his career includes numerous acting jobs in feature films, television series, and television commercials.  "His message is about being able to take that leap and not being afraid to try something new and to become a lifelong learner.  That's one of our goals in the class and he demonstrates that."

     Ariani meets with her students once a week to discuss their jobs and visits their work sites to speak with their supervisors.  the class covers safety on the job, taxes, personal fiance, career planning and more.

     "Tom helps students feel like they could go off and do whatever their hearts desire,' she said. 'It's confidence building.  and any time you can get a high school student to think about banking, that's good.  Banks are going to be their financial reality, and Tom helps demystify things."

     Tom McGraw, Chief Executive Officer commented, "It is refreshing to see so many bright young minds.  Dianna's class is a real dose of reality for these young adults."

Congratulations to SSFHS Jimmy Wen! 

He received 1st place/1st prize for entering a Bots competition.  Per Jimmy, "The bots were judged based on how easy it was to use, how well it addressed a social issue and how much improvement there was compared to the original bot that we made in a workshop. My team's bot addresses crimes that are within 100 feet of cars, chatting with drivers and contacting authorities if there is a problem. The actual Bot v Bot competition itself featured bots interacting with each other in front of a panel of judges and the audience. Judges decided which bot would make to the next round based on their overall language processing capabilities. I'm not allowed to go into much detail, because it's a classified idea that IBM might work with."
Way to go, Jimmy!

Attention all students:

Fire alarm units are placed on buildings for a reason: to alert there is a fire and to evacuate. 

 

Pulling a false fire alarm disrupts school and students' education. It is also against the law with consequences of up to $5000 fine and an arrest which could lead to imprisonment. School consequences result in a five day suspension for disruption of the entire school.  Any person who is involved in the false fire alarms will result in both - school consequences and dealing with the law. 

 

Students:  if you see something, say something

Congratulations to James H. Coleman and Raymond Lin who have been named Commended Students in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program!  A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, were presented by Dr. Rapaido to these scholastically talented seniors!

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Although they will not continue in the 2017 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more that 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

"The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," commented a spokesperson from NMSC.  "These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.  We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success."
