LCAP Advisory Committee Applicants Wanted

LCAP Advisory Committee Application - November 9 – Dec 8, 2015 - In 2013 - 2014, the state of California changed the way it funds school districts.  The new model, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), allows districts more freedom in how funds are spent but also required the development of a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that aligns spending district goals for student achievement. 

One key aspect of the LCAP process is the engagement of parents/guardians and staff in providing input and feedback.  Annually, the plan is updated and the committee will meet to review, revise and/or develop new goals.  NUSD is in the process of establishing the LCAP Advisory Committee. 

NUSD is seeking application for parents and teachers to participate on the advisory committee.  If you are interested in participating on this committee you must be available for meetings on the mornings of:

January 21                   March 8

April 13                       May 10 All

The deadline for applying is December 8, 2015. The Board will review the applications on December 15, 2015.  If you are unable to access online paper copies are available at school offices.

LAST DAY FOR CLASS SCHEDULE REQUEST THURSDAY, 9/10

Dear Parents/Students,

Thank you for your patience and flexibility during the past two weeks during class schedule changes.  The NMHS counseling team is working diligently to address every student and parent concerns regarding their student's Class Schedule.  It is necessary to prioritize specific needs to assure that ALL students have the appropriate classes to fulfill A-G graduation requirements, a six (6) period day and appropriate level courses.  Every effort has been made to carefully review each request on a first come, first serve basis, unfortunately, not all requests will warrant a schedule change.  The "New" online "Schedule Change Request" process has allowed the Counseling Team to swiftly review each request, call in students and make the necessary changes with minimal disruptions in a timely manner.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 IS THE LAST DAY to make a request for a "Schedule Change". 

Thank you.

This spring you will be participating in the new California Assessment of Student Performances (CAASPP) in English language arts/literacy and mathematics.  The Smarter Balanced assessment of the CAASPP System will determine your Early Assessment Program (EAP) Achievement Level and provide you with an indicator of your predicted readiness to take college-level English and mathematics courses when you begin college.

 

Knowing your Achievement Level at the end of the eleventh grade gives you the opportunity to use your senior  year to improve your skills.  Whether you plan to attend a California State University (CSU), one of the California Community College (CCC) campuses, or another institution of higher education, taking steps to prepare for college before you graduate is important to your future success.  You will receive your Achievement Level results on your CAASPP Student Score Report during the summer.  However, your school will have access to your Achievement Levels electronically within four to six weeks after the CAASPP examinations take place.

 

A significant benefit for students who perform at Achievement Level  4 on the CAASPP examinations is that you will be exempt from taking the CSU and participating CCC placement tests, and you will be able to move directly into college-level courses upon enrollment.  Students who perform at Achievement Level 3 will be encouraged to take appropriate courses in their senior year in order to move directly to college-level courses.  Additional information about the next steps for students who perform at Achievement Level 3 or below is on the CSU EAP Web Page at www.csusuccess.org

 

If you would like the CSU or participating CCC to receive your grade elevel English and/or mathematics CAASPP results, please select "bubble" at the end of your exam.  We strongly encourage you to release your results.  These results will not have an effect on your admission to the CSU or CCC.  If you choose to not release your results and later decide you would like the CSU or CCC to receive your English and/or mathematics results, you will need to provide a copy of your CAASPP Student Score Report to that Institution.

 

To learn more about the EAP and Smarter Balanced level results and to access college prep interactive tutorials, visit the CSU Success Web site at:  www.csusuccess.org  If you have questions regarding the EAP and the Smarter Balanced Achievement levels, please talk with your English and mathematics teachers, high school counselor, or career center director.  

 

 

 

Additional Pathway Using SAT/ACT Sub-scores 

for EAP Conditional Status

 

CSU anticipates fewer students demonstrating readiness due to the change in the structure of the EAP assessment beginning in 2015.

*This may increase the number of students needing remediation and to take placement tests.

*CSU wants to ensure all students receive a fair assessment of their college readiness status. 

  

*CSU currently has a Determination of Competence in English and      

Mathematics policy that uses SAT/ACT scores. 

*CSU will use SAT/ACT results to indicate a conditional college-ready status in  English and mathematics.

*Encourage students to take SAT/ACT in the junior year

*This allows for students to be placed in appropriate senior year English and/or mathematics courses.

Measles Information

The CDC has reported an outbreak of measles in the country currently involving 17 states.  Alameda County alone has 6 confirmed cases of measles, and additional cases of measles are likely to occur.  Newark Unified School District would like to take this opportunity to provide some information about measles and how to protect our community.

Measles is a very contagious infection that is easily spread through the air and by direct contact, and can manifest in an infected individual 8-13 (and up to 21) days after exposure.  Symptoms are as follows:  high fever (101°F or more), cough (hoarseness), red eyes (light sensitive), runny nose, rash (blotchy dark red and usually comes 3 days after the fever).  Serious and even life-threatening complications can occur.  Because measles is so contagious, it can spread rapidly once introduced and cause outbreaks.

If your child has not received at least two doses of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine and is exposed to measles, he/she may be excluded from attending school or child care to prevent further spread of the disease.  Information about exclusion of unimmunized students is available on the California Personal Beliefs Exemption form as well as in the California Code of Regulations, Title 17, Section 6060.

What can you do?

  • The MMR vaccine is safe and very effective at preventing measles infection.  Two doses of MMR are routinely recommended for all children.
  • All parents and guardians should be sure that their children are up-to-date with their measles vaccination.  Children should receive their first dose of MMR vaccine at 12-15 months of age and their second dose routinely at 4-6 years of age.
  • If your child has not received the recommended doses, contact your health care provider as soon as possible to arrange for immunization.  If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can call the Alameda County Public Health Department at (510) 267-8000 for a list of clinics, or visit http://www.acphd.org/clinics.aspx. For more information about measles, see the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website at http://www.cdc.gov/measles/index.html.

So our students were not only competing with other California students, but also students from Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming! Students who earned Gold Keys now advance for adjudication at the national level. We will find out those results on March 16th and of course, will keep you posted.

IMPORTANT: 480 Building Flooded and Classrooms Relocated

 

As you may or may not know, the 480 building flooded during winter break.  A water main burst and flooded 6 classrooms, the dance studio, and drama offices.  The building foundation cracked due to the water pressure, and several instructional materials were water damaged.   The building is currently under construction and closed off for safety measures.  The rest of the campus is ok and fully operational.  With that said, we’ve had to make some classroom changes.  Please refer to below information for classroom relocations.  Also, I’ve attached a campus map and circled in red the new classroom locations.

Open Enrollment (Intra-District Transfer) Requests for 2015-2016 School Year

(Spanish follows)

If you would like to have your child attend a different elementary school for the 2015-2016 school year, you will need to complete an Open Enrollment (Intra-District Transfer) Request form. These forms can be picked up at the office of the school your child is currently attending. Space is always limited so it is extremely important to fill out and turn in the form as quickly as possible. All Open Enrollment (Intra-District Transfer) Requests should be turned in to the District Office between Monday, January 5, 2015 and Friday, January 30, 2015. Thank you.

Open Enrollment (Intra-District Transfer) Requests that cannot be approved before the school year ends will be reviewed beginning the week before school begins to see if space for more transfers has become available. Student Services will continue to check for available space daily for approximately 10-school days. Requesting families will be called as soon as the request can be accommodated. Please call Student Services at (510) 818-4202 if you have changed your phone number from what you provided when you turned in the request for transfer.

Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Schools have no information in regards to your student’s application, so please make sure to contact the district. Thank you.

Se llamará a las familias que están pidiendo tan pronto como se pueda acomodar el pedido. Haga el favor de llamar a Servicios Estudiantiles a  (510) 818-4202 si se ha cambiado su número de teléfono que está en el pedido de transferencia ya entregado.

Parents Needed To Help Senior Class!

Dear Parents!

Here is an easy way to help our school and the senior class. It doesn't cost money but your help is immeasurable and truly priceless, The Newark Days Committee counts on students from our Senior Class each year to assist them with keeping Newark Days tidy. Rotating crews of 4 seniors are on hand from Thursday afternoon/evening until Newark Days closes on Sunday. We need a parent to just "be there" with them for each shift. As Activities Director, I will be at Newark Days watching over all of the student volunteers...we have Leadership and Link Leaders monitoring parking throughout the entire event and I cannot be in two places at once. Please consider signing up for this simple but necessary task. Newark Days donates money to our Senior Class and also to Link Crew, but only if we cover our shifts with adults that supervise.

Here are the shifts:

Thursday, Sept. 19th: 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Friday, Sept. 20th: 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm, 8:00 pm - 10:00pm

Saturday, Sept. 21st: 8:00 am - 11:00 am, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm,

                                5:00 pm - 8:00 pm, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Sunday, Sept. 22nd: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm,

                                4:00 pm - 7:00 pm, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

PLEASE consider donating a little of your time so the seniors can have a successful fundraiser!

ROP FIRST DAY CORRECTION....CORRECTION...CORRECTION

I incorrectly have been telling students that the first day of OFF CAMPUS ROP is Monday, August 26th.  THIS DATE IS INCORRECT.

THE FIRST DAY OF OFF CAMPUS ROP IS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28TH. 

If you have a morning ROP class you do not need to come to NMHS untill brunch time at 9:51 a.m.  Third period begins at 10:07a.m.  That will be your first class on Monday and Tuesday.  Starting on Wednesday, if you have a morning ROP class, you will report directly to the ROP center.

I am sorry for any inconvience this may cause.  Please tell any other ROP students that the first day of OFF CAMPUS ROP is Wednesday, August 28th.

NMHS Graduation: Saturday, June 15, 2013

Dear Newark Memorial Friends and Family,

The Newark Memorial Graduation Ceremony will be held at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 15th, 2013 at the NMHS Cougar Stadium. All graduating seniors must report to the Old Gymnasium at 8:00 am sharp Saturday morning. Only students are allowed in the Old Gym at that time. We have many staff members available to assist them with their caps and gowns. Achievers, the cap and gown people will also be on site to assist with any problems like a cap that is too small, etc.

The graduation ceremony will begin at 9:00 am and no tickets are required for this event. Seating is in the stadium bleachers and we will open both sides of the stadium to accomodate the large crowds. Handicapped seating is available on the track for those family members in wheelchairs or who cannot climb the bleachers. Space is limited so we ask that only one attendant sit with the person who requires assistance. Seating is limited and will be monitored by a staff member. If we follow these guidelines we always have enough room. We recommend arriving early to all families to ensure you find a seat in the stadium. Please do not try to "save" lots of seats. Plan to come early and occupy the seat you want to sit in. Standing in front is not permitted as aisleways need to be kept clear. Also, please leave balloon bouquets at home as they block the vision of others seated behind them. We will ask those people who bring them to tie them along the back and side rails of the bleachers. :) We always have a great time if everyone remembers to be courteous to others. We have photographers who take the close-up shots of your graduate as they receive their diploma

The ceremony will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Parking Information: We will have a large handicapped parking area right next to the stadium entrance on the blacktop basketball courts. This will be moniotored at the entrance gate to the blacktop area by Newark Police Department and only those with handicapped permits may enter.

Once the NM student and staff lots fills up, and they will do so quickly, we recommend that you park in the wide open spaces at Newpark Mall across the street near Macy's or Burlington Coat Factory. Please DO NOT park by the smaller businesses directly across the street or in the Taco Bell parking lot as your car may be towed. Plan to carpool or drop off extra family members early. If we all remember that there will be crowds and plan accordingly, everything will work out just fine!

Also, Spirit Week DVD's and Senior Slideshow and Video DVD's will be available for purchase as well for only $5.00 each. The Graduation Ceremony will be streamed on playonsports.com by MCA.

JUNIORS - are you ready for college-level math and English courses?  Find out by participating in the EAP at your high school.   

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) lets you know if you are ready for college-level work in English and mathematics at the end of your junior year of high school.  The early signal gives you the opportunity to improve your skills during your senior year or the summer before attending a CSU or CCC.    More about the EAP English Test   More about the EAP Math Test 

 

 To help you prepare, be sure to take advantage of the free, online exam preps: 

 

After you take the test, you will receive a score report that tells you whether you need additional preparation for college-level work or meet  the CSU's and participating CCC's requirements for freshman math and English courses. Visit CSU's Success website for tools available on pinpointing individual strengths and weaknesses. If you need more time to prepare, you have your entire senior year to do so.

Your EAP results will be available in late August, at the beginning of your senior year. There are two ways to determine your EAP status:

 

  • Locate your EAP results on the back side of your Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) report.    

  • IMPORTANT!   Juniors, if you would like the CSU or participating California Community Colleges to receive your English and/or mathematics EAP results, please fill in the "bubble" in the "EAP Readiness for College English-EAP Augmentation" and/or "EAP Readiness for College Math-EAP Augmentation" section of your STAR answer sheets to authorize release of your results.  We strongly encourage you to release your results.  If you choose  to not release your scores and later decide you would like the CSU or CCC to receive your   English or mathematics EAP results, you will need to provide a copy of your EAP results to the CSU or participating CCC.

PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Corporation

 This year’s PSAT will be given at Newark Memorial on Saturday, October 20th.  Registration will begin, with Ms. Destowet in the Main Office, on Monday September 24th and – space allowing - will close on Thursday, October 18th.   The fee this year will be $25 - those students who receive free or reduced school lunch need to see Ms. Evans to apply for a fee waiver.  Do not wait until the last few days to register or apply for a fee waiver!!! 

This test is given only once a year and is an important test for freshmen and sophomores but more particularly for juniors.  The most common reasons for taking the PSAT are to:

  2. See how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.
  3. Enter the competition for scholarships from National Merit Scholarship Corporation (grade 11).
  4. Help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and the exact directions you will see on the SAT.

Senior Breakfast and Slideshow Photos

Dear Senior Parents and Students,

It is time to submit your photos for the Senior Slideshow! Send them via email to photos@nmcougars.org as soon as possible! Make it a priority if you want to see your student or yourself (seniors!) in the slideshow!! Search for them over the Spring Break! We are looking for photos of small groups of students from their K-12 experience.

We cannot put individual photos in of baby pictures, family photos, etc. We need groups from field trips, activities, kindergarten photos together, classroom shots growing up, friends together through the years, 8th grade graduation photos, etc. This is a slideshow for the students so the photos need to be of all their classmates, hopefully good quality or they will not be selected. We also cannot guarantee that all your photos will be used. We have to try to balance how much any one student appears in the slideshow. Some parents have been good about taking lots of pictures, and we really would like to see them!

Email them to the above email, or bring in a photo CD or actually pictures which we can scan and return to you. Please label any photos with the student's name on the back.

We Are MCA Website Launch!

You may have noticed the new paintings hung in the Technology Center and the exhibit of artwork in the office; these are all pieces produced by students of the Media Communications Academy. The We Are MCA website documenting the project in images and video is up and we'd like to share it with you!

For this Project: We Are MCA, students designed a personal logo representing their experiences in the Media Communications Academy.  Working in Adobe Illustrator, a vector design program, they created images that reflect their feelings about MCA, what they’ve learned in the program. The idea is that separately each student has a voice/point of view, but together (combined in painting and other media), the students images create a larger encompassing concept of what MCA really is, the work becomes a portrait of our community.

Thank You

Dear Students & Parents,

I wanted to express my gratitude and thanks to each and everyone one of you for making me who I am as an educator.  Having spent 6 years at NMHS has been a wonderful experience filled with learning opportunities that I will always cherish.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives.

As you may already have heard, I accepted the position of Principal at another high school.  I wish you continued success in your own personal aspirations and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

All the Best,

Mr. Ferrer

2011 STAR Test

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Beginning April 12, NMHS students in grades 9,10, and 11 will be taking the 2011 STAR California Standards Tests (CTS), which test the standards taught in English, math, social science and science courses. 

Each testing day will be on a special "block" testing schedule except for Monday, April 18 where all classes will meet (see attached bell schedule).  All students will report to their period 3 class, unless told otherwise.  School will begin at the regular time with dismissal times as indicated on the testing schedule.  AC Transit  will run at their regular scheduled times.

The STAR tests are very important for the students and the school.  All student scores will be used to determine our Academic Performance Index which compares NMHS performance with all other schools in California.  Our goal this year is 752 or higher.  Our long term goal is to become an "800" school.

Make sure your students attend school on testing days, get a good night's rest, and have breakfast before the big test.

**Seniors will not be taking the STAR California Standards Tests, however they are to report to school at brunch time each day.

Sincerely,

Grace Huerta

Assessment Coordinator
