Kyree Harbin, Alec Calderon, and Trevor Scheibley to play at Levi's Stadium!

On Saturday June 24th at 6:00PM the 43 Annual Charlie Wedemeyer High School All Star Football game at Levi’s Stadium will feature the very best graduating high school football players in Santa Clara County. Santa Teresa High School will be represented by Kyree Harbin, Alec Calderon and Trevor Scheibley playing for the South All Stars. This long-standing tradition has been the dream of many student athletes for decades. They get to play their last high school football game at Levi’s Stadium in front of a great crowd of fans and community supporters. This game is produced by the Rotary Club of Almaden Valley in partnership with the San Francisco 49ers and all proceeds go to charity.

 

New this year is the ability for each school to use this as a fundraiser themselves and with very little effort can raise much needed funds for their various needs. All that is needed is for Santa Teresa High School to email/social media blast the following information to all families and encourage them to share with everyone. Every ticket sold through this special link will earn $5 for the school. Here is how it works (feel free to cut and paste in an email blast);

Santa Teresa High Schools Special Link (simply copy and paste):

https://oss.ticketmaster.com/aps/49ersnew/EN/link/promotion/home/d700c9385c4f6e641a60ea2add82ed24cddcba07

Press “Find Tickets”

A pop up box will ask for a promo code: enter “CWSANTATERESA”

And then enter how many tickets you need and purchase them like normal.

Any tickets purchased through that site will have $5 each directed to Santa Teresa High School within 30 days after completion of the game. Ticket prices are $25 for adults, $15 for youth 18 and under.  Let’s make sure there is a strong Santa Teresa High School showing to cheer on Kyree, Alec and Trevor. The San Francisco 49ers and the Rotary Club of Almaden Valley have teamed up for this phenomenal event.

 

If you want more info on the history of the game, please go to www.youthclassic.org.

 

Thanks for your support and consideration. See you at the game!

SJSU Deadline Reminders | Spartan Scholars and Intent to Enroll

FYI: In case you plan on going to SJSU. Deadlines are below.

 

Dear Counselors,

 

I hope this email finds you well.  I just wanted to send a quick reminder that today is our deadline for provisionally admitted students to submit their Intent to Enroll to commit to attending San Jose State University in Fall 2017. 

 

Additionally, I wanted to send out a reminder that today is also the deadline for students who have to complete Early Start to apply for the Spartan Scholars program.  More information on that program can be found below:

 

The Spartan Scholars Program provides students with a scholarship that covers the full cost of participation in the 5-week academically intensive residential experience and gives them a head start by providing an introduction to campus support services and resources, developing writing, communication, time management, leadership skills, and connecting participants to professors and peers. The Spartan Scholars Program prepares and supports students in their transitional experience from high school to college. Qualified students are able to participate in one of the two components of the program: Residential or Commuter component. This summer experience allows students to complete their Early Start requirements, work towards remediation requirements, strenghten writing and math skills, and build their SJSU network of friends, faculty, staff,community and resources. Participants are awarded a scholarship that will cover costs that include: Summer housing, meals, Early Start courses, co-curricular activities, and off-campus events. This is an opportunity you will not want to miss out on!

 

Residential component:

- Double Remedial (Math AND English) and must complete their Early Start Requirement before attending SJSU in the Fall

- EFC of 0-800

- Participants in the Residential component are also required to reside on campus through the entire program due to the intensity of the daily schedule that includes academic courses and required activities throughout the entire day.  

 

Commuter component:

- Single Remedial (Math OR English) and must complete their Early Start Requirement before attending SJSU in the Fall

- EFC of 0-800

- Participants in the Commuter component do not live on campus and should live within a 30 mile radius from SJSU as the academically intensive program typically runs from 8am - 4:30pm Mon-Fri.

 

Application Information:

- Can be found at http://www.sjsu.edu/spartanscholars/

- Deadline to apply: May 1 at 11:59pm

- 1 Letter of Recommendation from a high school teacher, counselor, coach, or close family friend who can tell us a little more about who you are and how you would benefit from participating in our program.

 

For more information, please contact us at spartanscholars@sjsu.edu or visit our website at http://www.sjsu.edu/spartanscholars/

 

Please let me know if you have any questions, and have a good rest of your week!

Messenger Call: Re: Class of 2017 Grad Night

The following message was broadcast via Infinite Campus Messenger on Wednesday, April 26:

 

Good evening, this is Greg Louie, Principal of Santa Teresa High School with a reminder about the Class of 2017 Grad Night event planned for Tuesday, May 23.  Please be aware that tickets are $60 this week, but the price will go up to $85 next week.  The event will include great food (chocolate fountain, catered luau, tons of snacks, mocktail bars, and a sunrise breakfast), live DJ, casino, photo booths, and all night entertainment.  

 

In addition, the Seniors who attend Grad Night from 10pm-5am will be excused from school on Wednesday, May 24.

 

The Class of 2017 Grad Night will be a great all-night party put on by our parents to keep each graduating member of the senior class off the street and in a safe, alcohol-, tobacco-, and drug-free environment, yet free to celebrate their achievements and enjoy one last class party with their friends and classmates.

 

Finally, we need as many Seniors as possible to buy their tickets this week so that we know if there is a demand for an event like this.  Thank you and I hope you have a great evening and a fantastic end to your Senior Year!

Messenger Call: Re: Senior Pranks, Senior Ditch Days, and Senior Privileges

The following message was broadcast to Seniors and their families on Saturday, April 8, 2017 via Infinite Campus Messenger:

 

​Good afternoon Seniors and Senior Families:

 
This time of year, Seniors begin to plan their Senior Pranks and Senior "Ditch Days."  
 
Please let me be clear: any Senior Prank that results in extra work for my staff, that vandalizes the school, or is done in such a way that inconveniences or offends others will result in serious consequences (ie. Saturday School, loss of Senior Prom, loss of graduation ceremony participation, loss of Senior Grad Night, etc.)
 
For example, it has come to my attention that some Seniors were planning to bring their dogs and pets to school on Monday, April 10.  Please understand that the only animals allowed on campus are certified therapy animals.  Any students who brings an animal to school (any day of the year) that is not certified to be on campus will need to take their animal home or risk it being collected by Animal Control.  Likewise, if the student misses school to return their animal home, they will be assigned a Saturday School to make up the missed time.
 
Rather than contemplating a "Senior Prank," I encourage our Seniors to come together to do something productive and positive rather than destructive and distracting.  The Class of 2017 is a special class and a poorly thought-out prank will tarnish your legacy.
 
In addition, there are no "approved" Senior "Ditch Days."  Seniors who miss school between now and the end of the school year may be required to attend Saturday School to make up for the unexcused absence.  I also ask that parents and guardians not "excuse" their Senior to attend Senior "Ditch Day."  We have Spring Break coming up and if Seniors really wanted an end of the year bonding activity, it should be done during Spring Break.
 
The end of the Senior year of high school can be wrought with temptation and bad choices.  The Senior Prom, Senior Grad Night, the Graduation Ceremony, and other events are privileges--they are not rights.  Please end your four years of high school on a positive note and please do not put me and my Administrators in a position where we must take away any of your Senior Privileges.
 
Thank you for your cooperation.

Dear High School Campus Partners, 

 

We hope this message finds you well.

Dear High School Campus Partners,

 

The Financial Aid and Scholarship team at UC Berkeley hopes that you are having a successful fall semester. As your offices have been preparing your excellent students to apply to universities all around the country, we want to encourage that your students apply to UC Berkeley. UC Berkeley is a wonderful research institution with amazing students, faculty, and staff. We genuinely want students from our partner high schools to apply and attend UC Berkeley.

 

To assist students with affording the cost of college, we created a new scholarship program. The new Fiat Lux Scholarship program has combined the Cal Opportunity scholarship and the Incentive Awards Program. The new program will maintain the best programmatic elements from both programs. The Fiat Lux scholarship will help the students financially and help them to be successful at UC Berkeley. We have attached a one page summary of the new Fiat Lux scholarship with more details about the program.

 

Please note that there is no application needed for the Fiat Lux Scholarship. Students will be considered once they are admitted to the university. Our office will review their financial aid package to determine their need and they will be invited to interview for the scholarship in April. The interviews will take place on the UC Berkeley campus.

 

The Fiat Lux Scholarship is a great opportunity for your students. All students should have the ability to attend the school of their choice without having to worry about the cost the education. This scholarship will enable students to pay for school as well as equip them with a supportive community to help them be successful at the UC Berkeley.

 

Please encourage your students to apply to UC Berkeley. We hope to see them in April, interviewing for the Fiat Lux Scholarship. We are here to assist you as well, so please feel free to contact us about any questions you may have about the new Fiat Lux scholarship.

 

Sincerely,

Young Ambassadors Program (YAP) for Graduating Seniors

ABOUT THE PROGRAM The Young Ambassadors Program (YAP) is a national program for graduating high school seniors aimed at fostering the next generation of Latino leaders in the arts, sciences, and humanities via the Smithsonian Institution and its resources.

 

YAP is a college preparatory and leadership program encouraging participants to explore various academic and career opportunities through the lens of the Latino experience. For the past ten years, this program has received major and continued support from Ford Motor Company Fund. Students with an interest in and commitment to the arts, sciences, and humanities as it pertains to Latino communities and cultures are selected to travel to Washington, D.C. for a week-long seminar at the Smithsonian. This enrichment opportunity is a leadership development and skill-building training that exposes youth to a wide array of academic disciplines promoting higher education and encouraging the exploration and understanding of the Latino identity.

 

The seminar, known as Washington Week, includes visits to the Smithsonian’s Latino collections and one-on-one interaction with renowned experts from various fields. Following the training seminar, students participate in a four-week interdisciplinary internship in museums and other cultural institutions in 17 cities across the United States and Puerto Rico. This hands-on component allows students to gain transferable knowledge and apply the skills acquired during the training seminar to their internship assignments.

 

Check the link for more details. Deadline to apply is April 9, 2017.

Fwd: [Deadline] Stanford Black Grad Students Association mentoring program: Challenge Accepted

In case you're interested..

 

Stanford’s Black Grad Students Association has put together a fantastic mentoring program for high school students in the Bay Area. I was hoping you might be able to pass it on to any high school students who you think would benefit. There are a few spots left in the program, which starts next weekend, so if anyone is interested they should sign up soon! 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Challenge....

 

Challenge Accepted: Empowerment of the Bay Area Black Youth

 

What: 2nd annual program at Stanford designed to expose and prepare underrepresented minority high school students for the graduate school experience

 

Who will Lead the Sessions: Stanford Black Graduate Students from a variety of fields including business, medicine, law, engineering, humanities & social sciences, and biosciences

 

When: 2 Saturdays, March 4th and March 11th, 2017 from 9 am - 5:30 pm

 

Where: Stanford's campus

 

Why: Even 60 years after the Brown v. Board of Education ruling, there is still a great disparity between the educational outcomes of marginalized communities of color and their

non-minority peers. As students of color in higher education, we are grossly aware of the lack of diversity as one climbs higher up the academic ladder.

Hello Hanh Deng,

     My name is Beatriz Velasco and I am currently in the Nursing program at San Jose State University (SJSU).  I am also the Breakthrough to Nursing Officer for a organization on campus called the California Nursing Student Association (CNSA).  I am contacting you because CNSA will be hosting a pre-nursing conference on the SJSU campus on March 18th from 10-2 in the Student Union Theatre.  This is a great event for anyone who is potentially interested in becoming a nurse.  We will have a few speakers at the beginning of the event that will talk about what it is to be a nurse, followed by individual smaller sessions where students can go and listen to presentations about what it takes to get into various nursing schools in the area, with a question and answer period at the end.  There is an RSVP link at the bottom of the flyer that I have attached, as well as, a Facebook event page link that students can access to RSVP to this event.  Anyone is welcome and the event is free.

    We are asking for your help to get information about this event out to your pre-nursing students, or any students that you feel would benefit from this event.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you for your time,
Bea Velasco

LCAP March 6, 2017 6:00 - 7:30 pm in the Library

Good afternoon everyone,

 

 

This news alert is being sent out to solicited the support of the Santa Teresa family. It's that time of year again to review the LCAP.

If you not familiar with this acronym. It stands for the Local Control and Accountability Plan. It represents the changes that California uses to manage school funding. The LCAP gives the district and the communities they serve more local control so they can respond to the needs of our students.There are eight priorities they focus on

4 out 5 are geared toward the student specifically, but there is one component that I feel is really important to help this plan work. The component is PARENTS, that is why I'm sending this alert. We need your voice. I know that these days it hard to carve out time for ourselves, and our family. I respect that but, finally, for the first time ever the LCAP gives parents access to the school district’s budget and planning process and allows parents to help determine its local priorities and approach.This is BIG, have you ever thought what would I do if I had a chance to make some decision regarding my children's education? I know I might have made it sound a little simple but, I do know that you are the key.

 

So thank for your time.

 

Sincerely 

 

Elvin L. Jackson

Parent Community Involvement Specialist

 

P.S  I have attached two links that you might want read. For those of you who can't attend.  I will be sending out a short survey so your voice can be represented. So until then best wishes

Santa Clara University Pre-College Engineering Programs

The School of Engineering at Santa Clara University is pleased to present three programs in 2017 available to current high school sophomores and juniors interested in learning more about the field of engineering. Each program brings students to Santa Clara University’s campus to participate in various workshops or courses facilitated by our faculty. The goal of these programs is to provide students with a chance to explore the possibilities of engineering as a career with the hope of fostering a deeper interest in future engineering study.

Our program offerings vary in format and eligibility criteria to suit students across all levels of engineering exposure and need. We invite interested students to explore and apply for the program that is the best fit for them. The Spring Engineering Education Days (SEEDs) and Summer Engineering Seminar (SES) programs are geared towards students who have not yet committed to future engineering study and who have had minimal exposure to engineering topics due to lack of access, whereas the Young Scholars Program is open to students with any level of interest in and exposure to engineering. Due to the high level of student interest and limited space, SEEDs and SES program acceptance has become highly competitive. Please see additional information about each program below.

Spring Engineering Education Days (SEEDs): 

The 2017 SEEDs program provides Bay Area high school students with a unique opportunity to explore introductory engineering topics. Selected participants come to Santa Clara University over the course of three April Saturdays (April 15, 22, 29) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to participate in workshops spanning several engineering disciplines. Workshops are presented in a typical university format, with a mix of lecture and interactive experiences. There is no cost to participate in this program outside of transportation to and from the university, and lunch will be provided. Program applications and recommendations are due by February 1, 2017.

Summer Engineering Seminar (SES):

In its 28th year, the SES program is an outstanding, five-day experience in July offering specially designed introductory workshops taught by our engineering faculty. Workshops are presented as a mix of lecture and interactive laboratory work, spanning several fields of engineering. The SES program also provides students with a taste of university life, as they stay in university residence halls for the duration of the program, eat meals on campus, and take part in afternoon recreational activities and evening projects. There is no cost to participate in this program outside of transportation to and from the university. Program applications and recommendations are due by March 1, 2017.

Young Scholars Program:
The Young Scholars Program provides local high school students the opportunity to enroll in college level courses during the university’s first summer session (June 21-July 28) at a 75% tuition discount and receive college credits upon completion. Engineering offerings include: Intro to Engineering and Intro to Logic Design. The College of Arts & Sciences is also offering Intro to Computer Science. Program applications are due by April 21, 2017. Students are encouraged to apply early as space is limited.

 

Full program details and applications can be found at: www.scu.edu/engineering/outreach. Thank you for your assistance in sharing these engineering opportunities with interested students. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact us at UGEngineering@scu.edu or (408) 554-4728.

Toys for Tots Toy Drive hosted by IRC and CSF

This year, students in the International Relations Club and California Scholarship Federation have asked that we renew our commitment to disadvantaged children within our community during this holiday season.  They have asked that we start a Toys for Tots Toy Drive as a club, and hoped that we can expand it to the rest of the school.  

 

Please support us by communicating this to students in your class.  We will be delivering toys on Wednesday, December 14th (the Wednesday of Finals Week).  You can send unwrapped gifts to my room, 217.

 

What can you donate?

  • Any new, unwrapped toy
  • Money
  • For girls and boys, ages 2-17
  • Appropriate toys:  Board games, athletic balls, books, music CDs, gift cards, Legos, action figures, NERF, pre-school learning toys, etc.,

Please avoid stuffed animals, plush toys, or video games (as they require a secondary console).

 

Please let us know if you have any questions.  We look forward to your support.  Our kids, your kids, are very excited to do this.

 

We wish you a very Merry Christmas, a stress free Finals Week, and a relaxing holiday break.

 

Best, 

Bryan G. Phipps and Kaitlin Jenkins

Messenger Call: Homecoming Overnighter Warning and Homecoming Events Reminder

The following message was broadcast via Infinite Campus Messenger on Wednesday, October 12.

 

Good evening,

 

This is Greg Louie, Principal of Santa Teresa High School with a warning about the Homecoming Overnighters and reminders about the Homecoming events.

 

First, this is a warning that there are no Santa Teresa High School sanctioned Homecoming Overnight events.  Any Homecoming Overnighters at the homes of families are in no way endorsed by Santa Teresa High School nor are any of these overnighters recommended.  I highly recommend families do not host these events due to the liability.

 

Tomorrow morning, at 5am, there is the school sanctioned Class Wall decorating activity.  Likewise, tomorrow night, beginning at 6pm is the school sanctioned Homecoming Rally.  Friday, the football teams host Live Oak, with the Frosh-Soph teams playing at 4pm and the Varsity teams playing at 7pm.  Friday is also that last day to buy a Homecoming Dance ticket.  Saturday, from 7pm to 10pm is the school sanctioned Homecoming Dance in the Multi-Purpose Room.

 

Thank you and I hope you have a great evening.

Superintendent's Letter to Community

Subject: Superintendent's Letter to Community


unnamed.jpg
October 5, 2016

 

 

Dear Friends of ESUHSD,

 

Across the nation, there is a trend that has reached the Bay Area on social media regarding clown scare tactics.  There have been reported incidents where individuals show up to schools and public places dressed as a scary clown.  To date, there have not been any reported incidents of verbal contact with these pranksters, but there have been numerous examples of inappropriate and threatening comments made on social media.

 

The safety of our students, teachers and school communities is a priority.  We take threats of this type very seriously.  We have informed the San Jose Police Department ("SJPD") of these newest threats made on social media.  The District is on heightened alert.  We are asking our students and community not to engage with or respond to any threats on social media.  Rather, please inform site administration immediately and we will update the San Jose Police Department.

 

With Halloween fast approaching, each site will determine whether or not they allow costumes.  However, because of this newest phenomenon, we will not allow clown costumes, nor any costume that disguise the identity of students.  Please work together in keeping all of our community safe from these disturbing social media acts of disruptions.

 

Sincerely,

 

Chris D. Funk

Superintendent

Messenger Call: AcademiCon Reminder

The following message was broadcast on 9/27/16 via Infinite Campus Messenger:

 

Good evening, this is Greg Louie, Principal of Santa Teresa High School with a reminder about tomorrow’s AcademiCon event.  Tomorrow promises to be a day that should inspire, educate, and empower our students to think about their futures beyond high school.  We have over 120 guest speakers, a College Fair including nearly two dozens schools, a Military Fair involving the different branches, and an Academic Rally organized by our ASB.

Students are encouraged to leave their backpacks home and are asked to represent Santa Teresa High School to the best of their ability as we want our guests to leave impressed both with our school and our student body.

Printed schedules will be distributed to students in their 2nd period classes.  If students did not pick their workshops using the Sched program, I relatively randomly selected courses for them.  If students did pick their workshops using the Sched program, what they receive on paper should match what they see on their Sched attendee page.

Students who do not have a 2nd period class should check in with Ms. Hawkins in the Counseling office to pick up a copy of their schedule before 8:30am.  Attendance will be taken throughout the day and students are expected to be in the sessions for which they are scheduled.  Students caught cutting or who misrepresent Santa Teresa High School may receive a Saturday School as a consequence.

Ultimately, a lot of work goes into building AcademiCon and I hope our students have a phenomenal experience.

Four Year Plans---REQUIRED to Complete!

Attention Students and Parents:

 

As a district we have moved to the district platform for Naviance which means that all schools in our district will be utilizing Naviance. 

 

One of the mandates for all schools is to complete the comprehensive four year plans with each student in grades 9-11 over the next month. We started this process a few weeks ago by creating School Wide Lessons (SWL's) for students to learn how to complete this process step by step. Students need to do the following to complete this process:

 

1. login to their naviance account 

 

2. complete the "Do What You Are" personality assessment by September 12, 2016

 

3. complete the "Four Year Course Plan" by September 30, 2016. 

 

For help/reference all of the SWL's and detailed directions are on the school website under the main counseling page and the library computer lab has been reserved by counseling during most advisory/tutorial periods over the next month so that students can use computers and get help from counseling if they need to. We also have the homework/tutoring center in the library after school if students want to work on this process after school as well or don't have computers at home or internet access. 

 

If students do not complete the steps of this process within the timelines there will be a two step process for students to get that work done as this is required for students: 

 

Step 1: Student will receive a letter in class warning them that they have not completed one or more of the steps and will need to complete those by a given date. 

 

Step 2: Student will be pulled out during advisory/tutorial periods to the library computer lab and required to complete the process with staff. 

 

Most of our students have already started and/or completed what they have been asked to do so far so we are confidant that this will be a fun and easy process for them. It is designed to help students learn what they want to do when they leave high school and what it takes to get there, including what classes to take in high school. 

 

As a reminder: This is also how we will be scheduling classes from this point further so if kids are not taking this process seriously or completing this in a timely manner it could jeopardize the classes that they get next year. Counselors will be setting up one on one meetings after the four year plans are complete to go over each students' individual plan and help them make any adjustments needed to maximize what they want to get out of high school. 

 

We are so excited to be able to work with your students on such an important task and thank you for your support!

Santa Teresa Mattress Sale-9/17-Support Band & Color Guard

PLEASE SUPPORT SANTA TERESA BAND AND COLOR GUARD!!!!! Event if you don’t need a new mattress, SHARE this with everyone you can to help support the Santa Teresa High Band and Color Guard AND save your family/friends money on a mattress!

 

Come on down to the MPR on Saturday 9/17 from 10am-5pm and view our outstanding mattress showroom. 

 

There will be mattresses & supplies (bed frames, pillows etc). These are name brand mattresses that are able to be sold at 50% retail price because our company saves money in advertising and store space by having these one day "pop up sales" PLUS the band & color guard also benefit. 

 

You can pay cash, credit card, or check and there is lay away, delivery, and financing. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI_y45CNH-4

 

CFS started in 2005 with the idea of using mattresses as a fundraising tool. The first few years people thought it was crazy, and it kind of is. Since 2005, CFS has grown to 60+ locations and has raised over $18 million for programs just like us! So how does the event work? The set up will look just like a mattress showroom (very professional) with brands like Simmons and other top manufacturers. There are 25 different sets in all price ranges starting at $199 and up to something you’d see in stores for $5000 they sell for $2500. How can they do this and give back to us? Since the event on the 17th will be in our Multi-purpose room, CFS doesn’t have to pay for the retail store location and can save anybody in the market for a mattress up to 50%.

Here is a link to their company website and Ive attached the contact information for the local representative for any questions you may have!

Schedule Change Requests

Attention Students and Parents:

To ensure that students with errors on their class schedule were fixed prior to the start of school the Counselors worked last week during the schedule pick up windows all day long to make any necessary changes that were pre-approved by administration (Ms. Davis had a table in the multipurpose room for this reason). If you did not follow this procedure and you have a legitimate error on your schedule you will need to follow the following protocol to get that schedule changed:

Legitimate Reasons for a Schedule Change*: 

1. You have two of the same class or a hole in your schedule (example: two Biology classes but no English class, or No 4th period class at all). If you have this error you should tell your teacher immediately and they will call down to the counseling office so you can come right away to get this fixed.

2. You passed a class in your schedule with a C or higher grade both semesters but are still in the same class again (example: you took CCSS Math 3 over the summer and passed with a C or higher both semesters and need to be put into Math Analysis). If this is your error you need to email your counselor so that we can make that change for you or call you into the counseling office to discuss this change. Make sure that you are clear about the issue and what class needs to be changed. 

If you were told by Ms. Davis to email her regarding a switch during the scheduling window please know that she will be looking at those lists and will make changes during balancing of classes in the first week of school if it works out, so please be patient to see if you can in fact get that change. 

The counseling office will be CLOSED the first week of school due to new students enrolling so please do not try to come to our office unless we have called you in with a pink pass. 

 

The following are Not Legitimate reasons for a class change and we will NOT consider making these changes for you (Do NOT email us about these types of changes):

1. You changed your mind about an elective and now do not want to take the class and want another one instead. Sorry we cannot do this as you had many months to change classes and those classes are now full (again if you were told by Ms. Davis to email her about this she has your email so be patient as you are on the waiting list). 

2. You "heard" that the teacher is mean, does not give A's, or you heard some other reason why you want to change your teacher. We do NOT make teacher changes!

3. You signed up for an AP class but now want to drop (We allowed students to drop AP classes all spring and all summer through July via email to Ms. Davis. If you did not drop you may not drop that class now as the schedule was built for the classes that you asked for).

3. You want to change your start time. (We do not have room in 1st period to make those changes at this time; however, again if you are on the list for Ms. Davis she will look at those when we are doing balancing.

  • Please only email ONE time to your counselor about your error as we will have many many emails to read and respond to. If you email multiple times it can cause a huge delay that might result in you NOT getting your classes fixed in a timely manner. 
  • If you do NOT have a legitimate reason for a class change, please do not email your counselor as we will not respond to you.

Thank you all for following the procedures to make this a happy school year.

Teleparent Message Re: Second Day of School: August 10, 2016

The following message was broadcast via Teleparent on Tuesday, August 9: 

 

Good evening, this is Greg Louie, Principal of Santa Teresa High School with a reminder that tomorrow is the 2nd day of school and we will be on a "T" schedule.  This means your student will have periods 2, 4, and 6.  

 

2nd period begins at 8am, which also means the traffic around the school will be very, very heavy.  Please plan accordingly by either carpooling, dropping your student off a little further away from the school, dropping your student off a little earlier in the morning, having them ride a bike, ride a skateboard, or walk.  Please also remind your students to follow the rules of the road by using the crosswalks and not walking across busy streets, such as Snell Ave and Santa Teresa Blvd.  Students walking from the shopping centers to the school must use the crosswalks.

 

6th period ends at 2:30pm, which again means the traffic around the school will be very, very heavy.  The library will also be open until 5pm, so your student can stay on campus to do their homework and avoid the traffic.

 

I hope your first day of school was a great start to the school year and I hope your second day is even better.  Thank you.

Hello, Neighbors.

National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event that is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the San Jose Police Department. This year is the 33rd anniversary of National Night Out with over 38 million people across the country expected to participate. 
National Night Out is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; 
(2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts; 
(3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships; and 
(4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. 

The event will be held at Coy park which is located at the corner of Coy Dr and Sigrid Way. 

We are looking forward to having members from,the San Jose Police Department in attendance, and hopefully representatives from San Jose Fire Department also. 

We will also have a table with Oak Grove and Santa Teresa high school parent and community specialists to answer any questions you have. 

The event will be from 5PM-8PM August 2nd.

Teleparent Message Re: Summer Reminders

The following message was broadcast on July 11 and July 21:

 

Good evening, this is Greg Louie, Principal of Santa Teresa High School with a few reminders.

 

First, this is a reminder that the first day of school is less than a month away on Tuesday, August 9.

 

This also means that Class Schedule and Textbook distribution and School Pictures for the Yearbook and ID card are even closer with Seniors scheduled for Wednesday, August 3 from 10-12pm, Juniors on Wednesday, August 3 from 1-3pm, and Sophomores on Thursday, August 4, from 10-12pm.  Freshmen Class Schedule and Textbook distribution and School Pictures will be a part of the Class of 2020 Orientation, hosted by ASB and Link Crew, which is Thursday, August 4 from 8am-3pm.

 

If your student is not available to take their picture on August 3rd or 4th, and thus not available to pick up their class schedule and textbooks, they can pick up their schedule on the first day of school on Tuesday, August 9.

 

For our Parents and Guardians, the Parent/Guardian Information meetings are upcoming, with the Senior meeting on Tuesday, August 2 at 5:30pm, the Junior meeting on Wednesday, August 3 at 5:30pm and the Sophomore  meeting on Thursday, August 4 at 5:30pm.  The Freshmen Parent/Guardian meeting is Thursday, August 4 at 8am.  All meetings will be in the Theater.

 

Finally, with less than a month of summer vacation left, this is a reminder to take care of your English summer reading.  The list of books are available on our website: sths.schoolloop.com.  If you are taking a language next year, I highly recommend you spend some quality time in the target language watching tv and YouTube videos, listening to radio and audio files, reading newspapers and magazines, and speaking to friends and family who speak the language you're practicing.  If you need to prepare for math, the Khan Academy website is pretty awesome.

 

Ultimately, we want this coming school year to be your best yet, but to do so, it's time to warm up your brain and get ready for the marathon that is school.

 

Thank you and I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.

Teleparent Message Re: Community Service Project, 6/16/16

The following message was broadcast via Teleparent at about 10am on June 15, 2016:

 

Good morning, this is Greg Louie, Principal of Santa Teresa High School.

This is a reminder about our Community Service Project scheduled for tomorrow morning at Palmia Park beginning at 8:30am.  So far, I have only received RSVPs from two graduates.  For us to finally put the Class of 2016 Senior Prank in the rear view mirror, we need a very strong turnout; one that will be impressive and characteristic of the Class of 2016's unity.  If there are only four or five of us, it does not look good and it leaves a lot of work for those of us who are there.  If we have an army, we'll be done quick.

The work day is scheduled from 8:30am to noon at Palmia Park (if we have a strong turnout, we will be done sooner).  We will be spreading wood chips in the playground area.

If you have work gloves, bring a pair to avoid blisters.  Please also wear closed toe shoes--do not wear sandals.  I also recommend wearing jeans and a t-shirt or long sleeved shirt.

Please RSVP to the email you received in your School Loop email, letting me know that you will participate.  Even if you can't attend the full three hours, I hope you will give at least an hour tomorrow morning to contribute to the beautification of one of our local parks.  I will be there and I look forward to working with any of my recent graduates and any interested parents.

If you have questions, please reply to this email or call me at 408-347-6210.  Thank you and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow at Palmia Park.

First Annual Ovation Awards Announced

Congratulations to Mrs. Burrell, Mr. Kenigsberg and Mr. Roman who were the recipients of the pilot program OVATION Honor.  

 

The STHS OVATION! honor is a chance for all stakeholders (students, staff, parents) to recognize an educator who they feel embodies what we are calling a Strength-Based Approach. This framework starts from a student-centered focus, involves school-wide relations and is future oriented.

 

These three educators were recognized for there Strength-Based teaching styles.  However there were over 15 STHS staff nominated from all corners of the campus. 

 

All too often the focus in the media is on the problems within education. We took a moment to recognize a few of those educators who deserve a standing ovation for helping their students find a path from the classroom to college, a career and positive participation in our community.

 

Please see attached photos of these educators receiving their awards and receiving some classroom standing ovations from their students.

Teleparent Message to Senior Families re: Senior Prank

The following message was broadcast via Teleparent on May 25, 2016:

 

Good evening, this is Greg Louie, Principal of Santa Teresa High School.  As many of you know, last night was the Class of 2016 Graduation.  Unfortunately, some of you may also know that about 70-80 Seniors participated in a Senior Prank that involved trespassing, stolen property, and vandalism of school property.

 

I have identified nearly 30 of these students, either by evidence and/or self-admission by the students themselves.  

 

The Senior Prank involved stealing campaign signs from throughout the community and placing them all over the hill near the clock tower and stacking presumably stolen cones in certain places throughout campus.  Besides trespassing on school property and stealing personal property, the Class of 2016 Senior Prank included trash being dumped throughout the campus, two trees being ripped out of the ground near the 500 building, buildings being spray painted with graffiti, and locks to classrooms and offices being glued shut.  1st period class finals were negatively affected, due to the inability to enter the rooms, the custodial team needed to spend a number of hours to clean up the mess, and the security team needed to spend a significant amount of time to identify as many of the culprits as possible and arrange for restitution.  The total cost of damage, cleanup, and investigation is at least $2,600.  Moreover, the hundreds of dollars of stolen campaign signs negatively affected the campaigns of local City Council candidates, violated the trust of our community, and negatively impacted the reputation of Santa Teresa High School.

 

To make things right, I need those Seniors who were involved to do the following.  First, if you are still in possession of any campaign signs, they must be returned to my office immediately.  Candidates who are running for City Council need their signs back in advance of the June 7th election.  Second, if you were involved in stealing and/or placing the campaign signs, you need to attend a meeting on Friday at 3pm in the ST Library to discuss restitutions in lieu of a police report.

 

If you were not involved in any way, you have nothing to worry about, but if you were one of the 70-80 Seniors involved in the Senior Prank, it is now time to own your mistake and make it right.  Those who I know were involved will be individually called and your attendance at the meeting will be mandatory.

 

Thank you.

For Immediate Release  

May 4, 2016

 

 

Andrew P. Hill High School Students Bring Anti-Bullying Show to Larger San Jose Community 

Collaborate to Obliterate Bullying

 

 

San Jose, CA - - Andrew P. Hill High School, part of the East Side Union High School District, celebrates its Anti-Bullying Club's 10-year anniversary. For the past decade, the club has presented an annual Anti-Bullying Show designed to raise awareness and to end bullying on campus. This year, Andrew P. Hill combined efforts with Friday Night Live (FNL), a youth-driven program on campus sponsored by A.A.C.I. (Asian Americans for Community Involvement) that is actively campaigning to reduce teen underage drinking. The partnership with FNL has inspired the storyline to include elements of Alcohol-as-a-Bully to the show.

 

The show, Snap Into Reality: Rebel Hearts Arise! is moving to the California Theater in Downtown San Jose for one special night. It will depict bullying behaviors such as religious intolerance, trans/homophobia, stigmatization of special education students, and social exclusion.

 

"We hope to start an honest conversation with the San Jose community about the all-too-real and gritty aspects of bullying," said Josh Greene, Andrew P. Hill's Anti-Bullying Club and Friday Night Live Adviser and Teacher. "In our diverse community, it's imperative that we educate ourselves about bullying concerns among our teens, and how we can prevent and intervene when needed. Bullying is not just pulling pigtails or getting a shove in the lunch line. It's serious, emotional abuse that can scar for life."  

 

All are invited to join and meet the students, teachers and watch the show.

 

SHOW:      The Anti-Bullying Show

                  Snap Into Reality: Rebel Hearts Arise! 

 

WHEN:      Friday, May 13, 2016

                  7:30pm - 10:00pm 

 

WHERE:    California Theater

Mission College Orientation

FYI: In case you're interested! :)

 

Good afternoon High School Counselors!

 

Mission College is excited to announce we have a pilot program that will give students $100 for completing one of two specific sections of Counseling A (Orientation to Mission College). Here is what students need to do to be eligible for the $100:

 

-        Register for and successfully complete Counseling A (Orientation to Mission College) section number 052485 OR 052486 (class offered May 21st, 8:30am-12:45pm)

-        Successfully complete the online component of Counseling A (4 hours) sometime within the following week

-        Register for at least 3 units in the Summer or Fall by June 1, 2016

 

This is only for the section numbers listed above as we have some additional grant funding we are putting towards this pilot program. In addition to the Counseling A course we will be hosting a BBQ following the class for students and their families, making it an even better offer!

 

Given most students will still be in HS and the course is offered in the Spring students will have to apply for Spring and fill out the concurrent enrollment form (attached). These forms can be emailed over with a copy of their ID to me or they can bring them into Julie Vu at the Welcome Center.

 

We’d love to fill these sections with your students so please help us spread the word and let me know if you have any questions!

 

Thanks,

Foothill College - Transfer Information Night
   

FYI: In case you're interested! :)

 

Dear High School Counselors and Administrators,

 

Thank you for the work that you do in transitioning your students and their parents to a 4-year university and/or a community college.

 

We understand that this is the time students will be submitting their Student Intent to Register (SIR) and there may be some students that did not get admitted to their university of choice.  It is also a time where many students and their parents might have a lot of questions about their options for transfer. 

 

At Foothill College, we believe in the importance of providing information about the community college as an option for transfer to a 4-year university.  We would like to invite you to our “Transfer Information Night” and ask for your help in promoting this event to your students and their parents.  It will be hosted by the Foothill College Transfer Center, Counseling Center, Honors Institute, and Articulation Office.

 

We will present to students and their parents in one room and high school counselors in another room where we will provide up-to-date transfer information.


We look forward to working collaboratively with you throughout the year and to be a resource for your high school. 

 

Please see the attached flyer for more information.   Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

 

Thank you,

Teleparent Message: SBAC testing schedule, Rowdy Ruff, and Grad Nite

The following message was broadcast via teleparent on 4/7/16:

 

Good evening, this is Greg Louie, Principal for Santa Teresa High School with a few reminders.  First, this is a reminder that next week we will be on a testing schedule due to the SBAC exams.  Ms. Davis will be sending out an email in the next day or so with specific details.  Information will also be on the school website and the actual schedule is on the school calendar, which can be found on the front page of our website.

 

Second, tomorrow is our 1st Annual Rowdy Ruff male volleyball event from 3pm-6pm in the gym.

 

Finally, tomorrow, as a reminder to our Seniors, if you are going to Grad Nite, or if you need more information, representatives from the Grad Nite committee will be on campus to collect payments and give information.

 

Thank you and I hope you have a great evening.

CAASPP Testing - April 11th-15th

Next week is CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) week at Santa Teresa High School and we will be on a special bell schedule. You can find the bell schedule for April 11th-15th on the school website in the “News” section.

 

Freshmen: 9th grade students will be testing Monday morning, April 11th, and will be taking the “Mock CAHSEE” post-test.  The students took the pre-test earlier this school year in their math class.  This test helps us determine how well the students understand important math skills.  The 9th grade students will be informed of their testing room tomorrow (Friday) in their 4th period.

 

Sophomores: 10th grade students will be testing Monday morning, April 11th, and will be taking the California Standards Test (CST) for Life Science.  This is a multiple choice exam that is required by the state of California and assesses students’ achievement of the California academic content standards in science.  The 10th grade students will be informed of their testing room tomorrow (Friday) in their 4th periods.

 

Juniors: 11th grade students will be testing Tuesday – Friday, April 12th-15th, and will be taking the SBAC assessments in English Language Arts and Math. The 11th grade students will be informed of their testing room on Monday, April 11th, in their 4th periods. Below is information that will hopefully answer any questions you may have about the SBAC, as it is a fairly new test.

  • The SBAC assessment results give students an early indication of how prepared they are to tackle college-level courses and the increasing demands of the workplace. As part of the Early Assessment Program (EAP), students can use their 11th grade SBAC results for placement purposes at 100 California colleges and universities as well as other colleges and universities across the country.
  • SBAC assessments are computer-adaptive and also require students to complete a performance task.  This provides students, parents, and educators with results that are more individual and meaningful in terms of what each student needs to be fully prepared for college and/or careers.
  • The SBAC results are public data and are considered a meaningful measurement of how well-prepared students are for college and careers at any given school.  For federal accountability purposes, schools are expected to achieve a 95% participation rate on the SBAC assessments. Students who do their best to excel on the SBAC assessments benefit not only themselves but their school and community as well.

For those students in Advanced Placement classes, this is a reminder that the deadline to reserve your AP tests is March 18.  Tests are currently $92.  If you can not afford the cost of your exams, please see me to discuss options.

 

Also, three dances are coming up!  The Sadies dance is March 12.  Tickets this week are $14 for singles and $26 for couples.  Next week, the price increases to $16 for singles and $30 for couples.  The Jr. Prom is on April 9 and ticket prices are currently $65 for singles and $120 for couples, but the price goes up next week to $75 for singles and $140 for couples.  Lastly, the Sr. Ball is on May 7 and ticket prices are currently $90 for singles and $175 for couples.  Buy your tickets early to save money as the prices will continue to increase as the dates approach.

 

Finally, if you downloaded the Santa Teresa High School app, thank you!  If you have yet to do so, please take a moment to download our app from Google Play or iTunes.  When we reach 2000 users, the app will also help us as a fundraiser!  As of this morning, we have nearly 1000 users!

 

Thank you and I hope you have a great evening!

Finally, if you already downloaded the new Santa Teresa High School app, thank you.  If you have not yet, please take a moment to download tonight.  When we reach 2000 users, we can begin to solicit businesses for sponsorships, which will go a long way to support our school.  It costs nothing to download the app, but by doing so, you are very much helping!

U.C. Approved A-G classes at SVCTE!

Attention Students: 

 

Silicon Valley Career Technical Education (formerly CCOC) now has A-G classes!

Yes, you read that correctly!  19 classes have passed the strict scrutiny of the University of California and may now be listed as an A-G class on your college application!  This means that students who wish to attend a 4 year college AND take a hands-on, career related course in high school can do just that!  For example: if you plan on majoring in Sports Medicine or Forensics you could enroll in a 3 hour course (1/2 of your school day) here at SVCTE and learn more about what you will be studying in college, and be able to list that class as an A-G course.   What a great deal!  Interested students should talk to their counselor about the possibility of registering for an SVCTE class.  Here is a link to the list of all available classes:   www.metroed.net/pdfs/15.16.course.flyer.11.20.15.pdf

uniforms, administration fees, product for classrooms such as books and 

basic supplies, ink, cameras, microscopes, etc. Each year with your help, 

were able to help more students/teachers out financially. We appreciate

all you do by as simple as posting a flyer or volunteering your craft expertise 

or working the welcome table. 

Our first boutique meeting will be September 17th at 630pm in the library on 

campus. The second and final boutique meeting shall be October 22nd in 

the library as well at 630pm. We will go over agenda items pertaining to 

set- up, pre-boutique actions items (such as flyer distributions or poster-
making). 

COACHES/CLUBS ADVISORS: 

If you are a coach of a team or a club host (teacher or student) and are

looking for profit sharing opportunities, please come to our meeting! We 

offer profit- sharing to help your team/club in trade for assistance with our 

fair. IF you cannot attend, please send me an email to discuss options 

available. 

VOLUNTEERS:

If you wish to volunteer on any level as an individual, you can do so as well. 

Please email me directly at stholidayboutique@gmail.com. There will be an 

upcoming volunteer sign-up available to those interested in working the 

boutique welcome table, or those who may want to run pick- ups for us 

such as coffee or donuts and other volunteer opportunities.

VENDOR INQUIRIES: 

Are you or do you know someone who may be interested in being a 

vendor? There is still time to join us! Please note, we are currently NOT 

accepting hair accessory or jewelry vendors due to the over-abundance 

of these vendors currently. 

SILENT AUCTION INFORMATION: 

A WORD from our Silent Auction Coordinator, Barbara Greni 

Hello Santa Teresa Families: At the STOPS 22nd Annual Holiday Boutique, we 

will also be holding our silent auction. For this event, we have been 

contacting businesses in our community for donations but we are hoping 

there are others out there also willing to donate and support our event. 

Do you have your own business and could make a donation in the form of 

goods, services, or gift certificates? (Examples: hairstyling, house cleaning, 

pet grooming, landscaping, massage, photography, etc). Maybe you or 

someone you know could donate some sort of brand new item/items for a 

gift basket, or a gift certificate /pass for a local business? Maybe someone 

would even be willing to donate a bigger item like a Kindle, Ipad/ I touch, 

or a monetary donation towards such? 

Try asking your employer, friends, neighbors, and relatives too! Any help 

would be greatly appreciated!

Please contact the Silent Auction Coordinator, Barbara Greni, at 

bgreni@aol.com as soon as possible, if you'd like to make a donation. 

THANKS much for any help you can provide to making our boutique 

successful!

InterConnection is a Seattle based nonprofit providing low income families access to affordable laptops and computers. In today’s world, not having technology readily available is a major disadvantage, especially for children who will lag behind because of it. That is why our mission is to connect underserved communities and nonprofits around the world to the computers and technology they need. 


InterConnection is a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher. All of our computers in our low-income store come with Windows 7, undergo extensive quality control, come with a 1 year warranty and ship for free. We have laptops for as low as $130 and desktop computers as low as $99. 

We are reaching out to schools in San Jose, trying to spread the word so that everyone who is eligible is aware of these options. There is a link below to our flyer with more information including the eligibility requirements. 

Equal access to technology at home, in school and other places is a must for anyone wanting to excel in the 21st century. Together we can help close the opportunity gap by providing students and their families with the affordable technology they so desperately need.

Please let me know if you have any questions. We also have an online retail store open to everyone, with proceeds benefiting our mission. Thank you for your time, it is much appreciated.

Volunteer Opportunity for Parents

ST Robotic Club is in need of support from our parent population. The club is hosting a tournament for 12 local FIRST Lego League team. They are looking for 10-15 parents, but let's shoot for 20 parents just in case someone can't make it. I'm attaching the letter the Robotics advisor sent me, and the link to the FLL website. So let show our students  with support what kind of parents make up our great community of Santa Teresa High.

NO EXPERIENCE NEED, JUST A DESIRE TO HELP OUT.

Thank You for your time 

Elvin Jackson

Parent Community Involvement Specialist 

Letter from the Robotics Advisor: 

FIRST Lego League (FLL) is a national organization (http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/fll ) that runs tournaments for students from grade 4-8. The students work in groups of 4-8 with one adult to design and program a robot to help with a need. They are also given a social context to research.
 
This year ST Robotics will host a tournament for 12 local FLL teams. In order to host this tournament, we need 10-15 adults to fill the roles of judges and refs. These adults will be trained online and then receive about 30 minutes of personal training the morning of the event.
 
All adults work in groups of 2-3 and interact with the children. They listen, ask questions, and decide how to score each group's presentation or robot.
 
No engineering/robotics knowledge is required.
 
All adults are screened online through Youth Protection.
 
The date of the event is Sunday Nov 22 from 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM. The team organizes the event and provides food for all volunteers.
 
Anyone interested should contact Mrs. Dimas at dimasd@esuhsd.org.
 
We need commitments by October 15.

One of the most important parts of our campaign is organizing a “vigil walk" with key stakeholders and community, beginning in the Mayfair neighborhood and ending with testimonies from CM Carrasco, San Jose Police Department, community partners and victims of violence at Plata Arroyo Park. That will take place this Monday. The flyer is attached and hope to see you there.
