Good evening Edison Families.  This is Principal Sanders.

 

This Wednesday the Board of Education will be selecting the new principal of Edison High School which will end my tenure here at Edison.  I am pleased and excited that the next Principal will be one of our own vice principals which means I can confidently pass the torch to someone who knows and cares deeply about our Tiger Community.

 

Words cannot explain how difficult it is for me to exit Edison.  It is a treasure of amazing people who have made me a better individual for the six years I served the school.  I am so thankful to be part of an exceptional community, and I am so pleased that my own children experience the beauty of the school, and I am doubly pleased that I get to continue to be side by side with the Tiger community as a parent.

 

I want to thank all of our families for entrusting your students with me and for helping make me a stronger and more reflective individual.  I will carry the depth of learning I have experienced at Edison to help serve the entire district, and I will do this with the passion and drive that I learned at Edison.  I am a Tiger for Life and will always be a champion for our school and our students.

 

Here are a few announcements for the week:

Congratulations for our girls' soccer team who won the valley championship against Tulare Western this past Friday.  It was a great game to watch.  The players worked as a team and play hard!  We are so proud of our lady tigers.

 

Also a congratulations goes out to Chemistry teacher Jennifer Click who has been nominated and chosen as one of five finalists for the NBC Sports 2018 All-Star Teacher Award. In the next few weeks, a film crew from NBC Sports will be here to film her in her classroom as well as conduct a few interviews of students and staff. The 3-minute video will be posted online and the voting period begins April 9th and continues through June 1st. On June 21st, she will attend a Giants baseball game and the winner will be announced on the field. The winner will receive $20,000 for their school. Let's rally behind one of our own and support Click in this opportunity. 

 

Here are some announcements for the week:

 

  • EHS presents an Outer Space Sadie's on March 17th at Edison.  Guest passes are available  in Administration North and are due March 7th.  Tickets will go on sale this Tuesday, February 27th for $20 each.

If your child missed the presentation, please have them log into Atlas and click on the scheduling tab to rank which electives they would like to take next year. Counselors will go back into classrooms after Spring Break to show students their course requests for next year.
  • Students enrolled in Advanced Placement Courses will be taking the AP exams from May 7th through May 18th.   By taking the AP exam and earning score of 3, 4 or 5 students can earn college credit for that course. They also can prove their readiness for college level English and Math, exempting themselves from having to take math and English placement tests and/or remediation in college. Fresno Unified is paying for all students enrolled in AP courses to take the AP exam for those courses.  It is the expectation that all students take the AP exam. If for some reason students want to petition to opt out of an AP exam, the applicant must complete the opt out form by this Friday, March 2nd. Failure to take the AP exam may could result in a fee from College Board. If you or your child has any questions, please see Mr. Lee in the Counseling Office in Admin South.

The CAASPP is based on the State Standards for English–language arts /literacy and mathematics. The Early Assessment Program (EAP), which is used by colleges, is embedded within the CAASPP test for English and Math. CAASPP results demonstrate knowledge gained throughout students’ time in high school. The EAP embedded within the CAASPP is an important exam because by performing well on the EAP (and scoring “Ready” or “Conditionally Ready”) students can exempt themselves from having to take math and English placement tests and/or remediation in college.

We encourage students to prepare for the SAT and CAASPP by logging into their Khan Academy account at home or in our library afterschool on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays .   The program is designed to raise SAT scores and can help you get into the college of your choice.

Sorry I missed last weekend's communication, but it was my 21st anniversary so I took the weekend off to spend time with my husband.

 

Here are some announcements for the week:

  • We have another full week of school.  All of our tigers need to get back into the swing of academics.  Stay focused on learning and working hard.
  • ​It is with great pleasure ​that we announce the hiring of Atnaf Harris as our head football coach.  ​We are excited to bring Atnaf back home to Edison where he will honor and continue to build the rich Tiger traditions.  Atnaf has had many years of coaching experience, but most recently he has been the head coach at Roosevelt High where he was able to turn the program around in two years.  He has a love and passion for serving kids, and we couldn't be more excited for his arrival at Edison.   We will have a football parent meeting Wednesday,  January 31st at 5:30 pm in room W117. At that time, we will introduce Coach Atnaf Harris and his coaching staff to our Tiger family.

I hope everyone had a good first week back and enjoyed the long weekend.  We had this long weekend to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.  What better way to honor him by acknowledging the power of his words.  He once said:

If you can't fly, then run, if you can't run, then walk, if you can't walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.

Second semester is a great opportunity to establish some educational goals and continue to develop character. I challenge all of us to personally and professionally take healthy calculated risks that will continue to grow us. 

 

It is a short announcement for the week as we get back into the swing of things:

  • Since there was no school on Monday, Friday will be a regular start day and school will start at 7:50 am. 
  • Looking to get into a good college? Trying to find a way to raise your SAT score? You should come to the library afterschool on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays and sign up for Khan Academy! The program is designed to raise SAT scores and help you get into the college of your choice.

Good Evening.  This is Principal Sanders.

 

Happy 2018 to all of our Edison families!  Often so many of us use the first of the year to establish new year's resolutions.  Some of them may be simple while others may near be impossible.  The intent of a new year's resolution is to encourage making a better you.  For me, I grounded my thinking this new year around a quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.: 

"If you can't run then walk.  If you can't walk then crawl.  But whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." 

Life is so much better lived by moving forward and giving a 100% of who you are at that moment.  Cheers to a new year filled with living life to the fullest!

 

Here are some announcements for the week:

  • Student attendance is essential to academic performance.  Please make sure to attend school daily and be on time.  We will be conducting random tardy sweeps, and students will be assigned after school detention.
  • Dress code will be enforced, and students will be required to correct dress code violations.  Class time is essential so to avoid missing valuable class time, please come to school in dress code.  Please also remember that cell phones are not to be used during class time unless the instructor has directed students to use them for educational purposes.  If cell phones are being used repeatedly without the teacher's permission, the cell phone may be confiscated, and a parent may be required to pick it up from administration.
  • CART students please remember that CART will not be in session on Monday, January 8th.  CART starts back up on Tuesday, January 9th.

  • Seniors:  This is your last semester and it will be a busy one.  You should hit the ground running with completing your FAFSA as well as start applying for scholarships.  Our counselors and job developer in the career center can assist you.

Good evening Edison Families.  This is Principal Sanders.  We are back at again with only three weeks left in the semester.

 

I hope all of you enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing Thanksgiving Break.  I know I enjoyed spending time with my family and friends.  I closed the week attending Tiger for Life Tony Perry's services.  It was amazing to see how many people Tony impacted in his life and a great reminder to all of us as the Dalai Lama has said "what is important is not so much how long you live as whether you live a meaningful life.  This doesn't mean accumulating money or fame, but being of service to your fellow human beings.  It means helping others if you can, but even if you can't do that, at least not harming them."  Tony's passing is a reminder about what it means to be a Tiger and to give back to the community. 

 

Here are a few reminders for the upcoming week:

  • Congratulations to Bryan Banuelos and Sarah Renberg for qualifying for the Cross Country State Championship Meet.  Bryan finished 10th overall individually in the Valley Championship Meet and Sarah finished 4th overall individually. 
  • Edison's Sophomore class presents the City of Stars, Winter Formal.  Winter formal will be on Saturday, December 2nd from 7-11 pm at The Bankers Ballroom.  Tickets are $40 each.  Tickets can be purchased through Friday during lunch at the attendance window.
  • This is the last week to participate in the coin drive for our Tiger Smiles Campaign, hosted by the E-City Pantry Club. Did you know that every kindergartner must get a dental check-up by the end of their first year of school? E-City Pantry is collecting coins to buy toothbrushes and toothpastes for every kindergartner in our region. In February we will go to our elementary schools and teach our kindergartners all about taking care of their teeth! Please bring your spare change to your fourth period class and fill up those Tiger Smiles mason jars! Thank you E-City!
  • Seniors: the CSU and UC apps are due November 30th. Counselors are available every day at lunch or afterschool. We advise students to have the applications reviewed by a counselor prior to submission.
  • ​The yearbook is currently on sale and will be sold for $75 from now until December 16th! Plastic book covers, name engraving, and additional signing sheets are also on sale for $5 each! Stop by room D105A to pre order! You definitely don't want to miss out! 
  • If you know of any students who are interested in transferring to Edison next year, the deadline for magnet application and transfer paperwork is this Friday, December 1st.  The past two years we have had a waiting list and last year 200 transfers were denied due to impacted enrollment so if you know of anyone wanting to attend Edison who are not already at Computech or Gaston, encourage them to get their magnet application and transfer paper work in to Counselor Ms. Hendrix this week.
  • Save the Date:  This year we have worked with our regional feeder schools to come up with a service project.  The student leaders from all of our regional sites have planned a regional carnival scheduled for December 9th from 1 to 4 pm.  Individuals can get tickets for the carnival games by donating items for those in need:  new or gently used blankets and jackets, scarves, gloves, socks, and toiletry items.  Each school will also be conducting a pre-drive for those unable to attend the carnival.  Edison will be conducting a pre-drive for new or gently used jackets.  All items will be donated to community members in need.  For more information, please see the flyer on our website.

Good evening Edison Families.  This is Principal Sanders.

 

I have expressed before we have something truly special at Edison, and I love EHS to the core of my being.  Each individual we have on staff contributes and sacrifices what they can for our students. When we experience great moments of joy or sadness, I too feel them.  This journey at Edison has been a gift and during times of success and times of tragedy, I am reminded of what an amazing community of individuals we have at Edison.

 

It is with great sorrow that I share we lost Assistant Football Coach Tony Perry this weekend.  Albert Schweitzer stated "at times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.  Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."  Tony was a special individual who served the Westside community.  He was passionate about helping youth light their fire for the future.  He was a beacon of hope for many of our students, and he will be strongly missed.  Our hearts go out to all of those impacted.  A deep love and gratitude goes out to Tony who has rekindled many young adults fires.  Tony will forever be in our hearts and will forever be a tiger.

Good evening Edison Families.  This is Principal Sanders.

 

We are approaching November which a great month to remind all of us the power of being kind and giving thanks to those around us.  Mother Theresa stated "if we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."  This is a great reminder to all of us that no matter our differences we are one community and some of the best learning for our youth is how we give to community to help make it a place of peace.

 

This year we have worked with our regional feeder schools to come up with a service project.  The student leaders from all of our regional sites decided that they would like to plan a regional carnival, scheduled for December 9th, and have individuals donate items like socks, blankets, etc.  Stay tuned as there will be more information to come.

 

 

Here are a few announcements for the week:

  • This week we are excited to celebrate our current students who passed one more Advanced Placement exams last year.  Last year we had a total of 514 students who attained at least one qualifying score, and we will be celebrating the 348 current students on Wednesday during lunch at the quad.  Students being honored have already received a special shirt and we are asking them to wear the shirt to the celebration.
  • We continue to have congestion on California Avenue in the morning.  We need your help to make sure that you are following the laws of traffic which include not speeding, jaywalking, or flipping U-turns.  FUSD has requested that the Fresno Police Department conduct traffic monitoring; however, we need your help.  If you are travelling west bound, turn on MLK to drop your student off in the back parking lot in order to reduce traffic turning left into the north parking lot.  We also recommend that you drop your student off earlier to avoid the traffic. 
  •  Seniors: Application season is in full swing. All CSU and UC applications are due November 30th. The counseling office advises students to not submit any college application without their counselor or an admissions representative reviewing it first. For help with applications students can come to the counseling office at lunch or afterschool for assistance. There will also be a CSU Make Up Application workshop Thursday November 2nd after school in the Smart Room.
  • Halloween is Tuesday.  We are permitting costumes but no clowns, no masks (including entire face painted), and no weapons.
  • Please contribute to the southwest community food drive this month ending November 16th.  Students can bring canned foods and non-perishable items to their 4th period class.  A couple of cans per student can go a long way.

Good evening Edison Families.  This is Principal Sanders.

 

Last week nearly 2000 students took the PSAT.  I want to thank counselor Elizabeth Aaron for her thorough coordination and hard work.  As a reminder to all of our students, practicing for the SAT is essential as it is used by most colleges as part of the admission criteria.  Khan Academy is a free resource for students to practice for the SAT and once the PSAT results are in, students can link their scores to get personalized practice based on areas for strength and growth.

 

Thank you to all of our families who supported the PTA sponsored fundraiser at Chipotle this past week.

 

Here are a few announcements for the week: 

  • As reminder due to construction and ongoing traffic congestion, we recommend that if you are traveling to Edison west bound that you use MLK street to drop your student off in the back parking lot.  We also recommend that you drop your student off earlier to avoid the traffic.

  • If you know of any students who are interested in transferring to Edison next year, we will have our Magnet Night this Tuesday, October 17th with entertainment starting at 5 pm, and the formal program begins at 5:30 in the cafeteria.  The goal of magnet night is to facilitate a forum for students and families from outside the area to get information about Edison to make an informed decision on where to attend high school.  Our magnet application is on our website and we will have it available that evening.  The past two years we have had a waiting list and last year 200 transfers were denied due to impacted enrollment so if you know of anyone wanting to attend Edison who are not already at Computech or Gaston, encourage them to get their magnet application and transfer paper work in by the December 1st deadline.

  • I am sure many of our families and students are concerned or worried about the FUSD and FTA negotiations  and how it might impact students.  Please know that our staff is committed to working hard and staying focused on student learning.  We are hopeful that an agreement will be reached; however, in the case that an agreement is not reached, we have started planning and will communicate thoroughly with parents and students.  Also know that the next phase of negotiations is scheduled for November 6 and 7 so no actions or agreements will be taken until after this phase.  For more information you can go to the FUSD website.

Good Evening Edison Families.  This is Principal Sanders.

 

This past Friday, our leadership students organized Feel Good Friday.  It was a great way to start the day.  They had a Take What You Need Wall that was filled with positive statements that students could take with them, they passed out kind clips that students were encouraged to pass on to others, and they had positive and uplifting music to start the morning.  Our tigers continue to amaze me, thinking of creative ways to spread kindness and joy. Small acts matter.  Thank you leadership. 

 

Here are a few announcements for the week:

Good Evening Edison Families.  This is Principal Sanders. 

 

I want to reinforce that our strength at Edison is our diversity of mind, body, and spirit.  All of our students bring value to the campus, and we (students and adults) will continue to work hard to make sure that our students feel safe during such times of discord.  As Educators it is not about our personal believes; it is about supporting the students we serve and their passions.  We are here to serve the youth and teach the youth how to find their voice in productive ways.  I am proud of our students who looked to find a voice to support DACA and were able to come to the table with adults on campus to determine the best way to present their voice and concerns for themselves or fellow students.  Please see Vice Principal Aquino if you are interested in supporting the student voice around concerns for our DACA students.

 

A great way to coordinate events and activities is to get involved with a school sponsored club.  Club Rush was on Friday with over 30 clubs to choose from, but if you don't find a club you are interested in, you can always start your own club all you need is a teacher sponsor and to fill out the club paperwork which is available with Mrs. Perez in W105.

  • On Wednesday, October 25th, Edison will administer the ACT ASPIRE TEST open to all freshmen students.  This is a practice test for the post-secondary ACT, and it is a great opportunity for students to get familiar with the format of the test.  We strongly encourage all freshmen to participate.  If you are interested in taking the ACT ASPIRE TEST, you must make a $25.00 payment for the ASPIRE Test with Mrs. Liera (financial secretary) at Admin North during break, lunch or after school until 3pm. Payments must be in form of cash or money order; please no personal checks.  The deadline is Friday, September 22nd so act fast.

  • Fresno Unified School District (FUSD) is pleased to announce the Edison High School Tennis Courts Improvements Project will be underway soon.

Good Evening Edison Families.  This is Principal Sanders.

 

As I wrote in the summer mailer, times in our society may seem fractured or splintered, but I passionately believe the role of education, educators, and parents is to help guide our students through the complexities of our times.  We must teach and guide our students how to have critical debate in a healthy and safe environment.  An environment where we teach one another how to listen to others perspectives, share conflicting ideas, and learn how to disagree with grace, tolerance, and compassion.  This is not a small task or something that happens overnight, and it certainly is never perfectly executed for any group of individuals with diverse thinking, but it is a habit we must practice with intentionality. 

 

During these times of uncertainty and discord, I challenge our community to collectively come together, develop others around you, and celebrate both our similarities and our differences.  Live our motto:  One Tiger, Many Stripes.  As the book The Difference declared through research that "diverse groups of problem solvers--groups of people with diverse tools--consistently outperformed groups of the best and the brightest."  It is not enough to be the most knowledgeable, it is important that our students learn how to constructively collaborate and use their differences to expose new thinking, new ideas, and increase learning. 

 

Here are a few announcements for the week:

 

  • Edison's Advanced Placement program has many resources in place to support students in their AP classes. Our AP Instructional Coordinator, Mrs. Schulz, is available in room W212 from break through the end of the school day to meet with AP students who need connections to resources such as time management strategies or tutoring. We believe all of our students can succeed in their AP courses and we want to ensure all students know where they can go to receive support.
  • After School applications are now available in the Attendance office.  The After School Program starts this Monday, August 28th.  Once the application has been completed and signed by everyone, return applications to Ms. Domingo in Admin North and pick up your lanyard.  Remember lanyards MUST be worn daily to attend the After School Program.   You must have a completed application to attend the after school program.  The program has a variety of academic supports as well as activities to participate in.   The hours are from after school until 5:15 Monday through Thursday and until 3:45 on Fridays. Please see Mrs. Woods ​if you have any questions.
  • Don't forget to come out to Edison High's first home Football game this Friday at Ratcliffe Stadium.  Game start time is 7 pm.  It is such a great way to participate in the Edison spirit.  100s of students are involved from football, to band, to cheer, to the student section; no other school can rival our Tiger spirit.
  • On Wednesday, October 25th, Edison will administer the ACT ASPIRE TEST open to all freshmen students.  This is a practice test for the post-secondary ACT, and it is a great opportunity for students to get familiar with the format of the test.  We strongly encourage all freshmen to participate.  If you are interested in taking the ACT ASPIRE TEST, you must make a $25.00 payment for the ASPIRE Test with Mrs. Liera (financial secretary) at Admin North during break, lunch or after school until 3pm. Payments must be in form of cash or money order; please no personal checks.  The deadline is Friday, September 22nd so act fast. See Mr. Sulcer if you have any questions. 
  • Good luck to all of our freshmen who are running and campaigning for school office this week.  We are proud of all of you for taking on the challenge!
  • Save the Date: ​
    • Next Wednesday, September 6th is Back to School Night from 5:00 to 7:30 and Senior Parent Night from 7:30-8:30.

Good evening Edison families, this is Principal Sanders.   One week down in the 2017-18 school year.

 

We closed the week with an amazing rally on Friday.  I am always very excited for the first rally as it tells me a lot about the culture of our school.  It was such a joy to watch kids be kids.  The energy was positive and the school spirit was alive. 

 

More impressive is how our leadership students and Campus Culture Director pulled off a great week for the Edison Tigers.  On the first day of school, we had music, decorations, and games in the quad, and the positive fun continued throughout the week, closing with a rally.  It is exceptionally difficult to plan and coordinate a rally within the first week of school, but they did it, and it was incredible. 

 

Here are a few announcements for the week:

  • Remember that school starts at 7:50 am and this Friday is late start where school starts at 9:00 am.  Student attendance is essential to academic performance.  Please make sure to attend school daily and be on time.  We will be conducting random tardy sweeps, and students will be assigned after school detention.
  • We are reminding all parents that a great tool is available, Edu Text, at their fingertips to provide updates on their student’s grades and attendance.  Parents/guardians can go deeper into those details through the ATLAS Parent Portal. Parents can register for EduText from their cell phone using an EduText parent PIN. 
    • Parents can locate their unique EduText parent PIN from their child’s class schedule, progress report, the ATLAS Parent Portal or through school offices. 
    • Parents/guardians can text the PIN to 28527 (ATLAS). 
  • To ensure all students and staff are safe during Monday, August 21st’s solar eclipse, Fresno Unified has advised all schools to delay or adjust recess, P.E. and any other outdoor activity schedules.  The partial solar eclipse is expected to take place at approximately 10:20am – 10:23am on Monday, August 21. Unless students and staff are wearing protective eyewear or are participating in a solar eclipse-related activity that does not involve looking at the sun, they have asked that everyone remain indoors during this short period of time. 
  • Any freshmen interested in running as a class officer may still pick up officer packets from Mrs. Perez in room W105.  Elections forms are DUE Wednesday, August 23rd by 3:00 pm in W105. 
  • Seniors:  Don't Forget!  Make sure to take your senior pictures at Maxwell studios as the deadline for pictures is September 22nd.  The senior pictures are used for the yearbook so call and make your appointment soon.  You can contact Maxwell Studios at 435-3380.
  • Picture Day for 10-12th and make-ups for 9th grade are scheduled for this Monday, August 21st.  Order forms were sent home in the summer mailer.  If you did not receive an order form, forms are available in the front office or will be available on picture day.  You can also go online to order at mylifetouch.com and use the picture ID BK117002Y1. 
  • In order to continue to keep our students safe, all students who drive to school must obtain an EHS Student Parking Permit.  Students will need to complete an application and provide a copy of their CA driver’s license and car registration with the application.  The student parking permit applications are available in the Attendance Office before school, during lunch and after school.  The deadline is August 28th.  All cars parked on campus must have the parking permit hung on their review mirror.  Students will need to park in the student parking lot located by the gym.  
  • The afterschool program will not start until next week Monday, August 28th.  If you are not playing a sport or involved in an extra-curricular activity that is supervised by an adult, you are not to remain on campus.  We will clear the campus daily at the close of school.  After School applications are now available in the Attendance office.    Return applications to Ms. Domingo in Admin North and pick up your lanyard once the application has been completed and signed by everyone.  Remember, lanyards MUST be worn daily to attend the After School Program.  ​If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Woods.

Good evening Edison families, this is Principal Sanders.   

 

As I noted in my summer letter "Edison is special, and it holds a special place in my heart."  I hope that your student feels the same for Edison as it is absolutely the best high school I have every worked at from the staff to the students to the parents.  We are a school filled with individuals who strive to get better every day.   At Edison we continue to learn and practice a growth mindset.   One of my favorite quotes is "good is the enemy of great."  We should never settle for good, and we should challenge ourselves and each other to get better every day both academically and socially.  This takes constant practice and focus. 

 

I challenge all of our Tigers to encompass a growth mindset this year and engage in learning.  Don't use language like I can't do this or I am bad at this.  Replace that language with I am just not there yet. 

 

 I look forward to seeing our students this Monday as we dig in to the hard work of striving to be GREAT.

 

Here are few announcements for the week:

  • I would like to start off personally thanking all of our link crew leaders and teachers who put on an awesome freshmen orientation, and Class of 2021 you impressed all of us.  We expect great things coming out of your class.

Good Evening Edison Families and Happy Fourth of July.  This is Principal Sanders.

 

So many of our students experience a packed schedule all year going from school to practice to homework.  I hope everyone is enjoying the summer break and enjoying some much needed down time. There are plenty of new articles about how children now are "over scheduled."  Being overscheduled can lead to anxiety, stress, and even limited development of creativity and problem-solving. 

 

The difficulty is finding the right balance.  I hope all of you find an opportunity to just enjoy time together without a completely booked schedule of activities, camps, travel, and academics.

 

I would however encourage our students to spend time reading (not for an assignment),  and I would also recommend that they start practicing for the SAT regularly in small spurts.   With admissions to college becoming increasingly competitive, having the highest possible SAT score can increase students’ chances of being admitted to their choice school.  Please encourage your student to log on to Khan Academy and practice for the SAT. 

 

 

We have the month of July ahead of us,  but here are a few announcements to help you plan for the upcoming 2017-18 school year:

  • For the 2017-18 school year, Computech Middle School and Edison High School late start days will be moving to Friday mornings.  Regular start days will be Monday through Thursday and school starts at 7:50 am.  Friday Late Start Days will start at 9:00 am.  Please remember that if there is a Monday holiday, there will be no late start day during the week with a holiday.
  • Freshmen orientation will be held on Monday, August 7 for Last Name starting A-L and Tuesday, August 8 for Last Name starting M-Z.  Freshmen orientation is from 8-12:30 pm.  It is essential that all students from the Class of 2021 attend.  They will be receiving student schedules, taking school pictures, and interacting with Edison staff and student leaders.  We will be sending a postcard home this week.
  • Schedule distribution for grades 10-12th grade will be held in the cafeteria:
    • Monday, August 7th from 12:30-2:30
    • Tuesday, August 8th from 12:30-2:30 and from 4-7 pm

We will also be hosting registration night on Tuesday, August 8th from 4-7 pm if you know of students who will need to register for school.

  • Senior Pictures can be scheduled with Maxwell Studios, located at 704 E. Olive Avenue.   More information can be found at their website:   www.maxwellfresno.com.  Appointments can be made by calling them at (559) 435-3380.  Maxwell Studios is open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.  Seniors, please schedule an appointment now.  Session cost is $16.  These will be used in the yearbook.
  • Many of our fall athletic programs are currently participating in conditioning sessions. However, all students are required to submit a copy of a current physical dated after June 1, 2017 to their head coach or directly to the athletic directors' office in room S 43.  Additionally, all student athletes must complete the online registration at FamilyID.com Please select the link 2017-18 and complete the registration process. You may refer to the our school website for contact information for coaches. The following Fall Sports are all currently conditioning as follows:
    • Girls' Water Polo: Monday and Wednesday's 400-630
    • Boys' Water Polo: Tuesday and Thursday's 400-630
    • Football: July 5-14

Our summer newsletter will be mailed out at the end of the July.  The mailer will include the yellow emergency cards required for students to receive their class schedule.

 

That is all for the month.  Please enjoy your summer.  We look forward to seeing all of our students on the first day of school, August 14th.
