Attention students in the spring musical!

Once again, congratulations on such a beautiful production this past weekend. However, all good things must come to an end. Monday, March 26th, will be strike. We need bodies to come throughout the afternoon and into the evening to take apart the set. We will start right after school and go until 6:30. The technical directors (Patrick Lucy and Andrew Hernandez) will be coming in at 5ish. We start on the little things and get to the bigger things when the gentlemen come. If you left stuff during the shows, this will be the time for you to pick up whatever you left along with cleaning up the theater. The more people that come, the more work we can complete in one day instead of two days. Thank you and see everyone tomorrow!

This message is sent to you on behalf of voter registration:
Dear Parent, Guardian, and Students:
Many people are surprised to learn that California has one of the lowest rates of voter registration of any state in the country.  Don’t take my word for it.  You can check out Table 4a in this webpage from the US Census.  The chart on that page is a wake-up call for all of us. 
Now for some great news:  California has laws to encourage voter registration.  We have pre-registration for young people who are 16 or 17 years old.  We also have online voter registration, which makes it very easy for people who are eligible to register or pre-register to vote.  Or, please check out out school website and click on the button!

Research shows that studying on Official SAT Practice for 20 hours is associated with an average score gain of 115 points from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT—nearly double the average score gain compared to students who don't use Khan Academy.
Institutions with the highest percentage of 2017 PSAT/NMSQT test takers who link accounts will be recognized for their efforts.
Find more information on the challenge—including tools to mobilize staff and students—and visit satpractice.org/k12 for additional resources.
Sincerely,
The College Board

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!

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.

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!

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.

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."
