In case you are having trouble coming up with ideas of what to do with your summer, I've been updating the College & Career Center website with different opportunities that are available. 

These are by no means the only option available to you, but I would recommend investigating/planning your summer earlier because August can roll around faster than you think.

 

Juniors: Check out Questbridge. It's a lengthy application and has very specific requirements for eligibility, but it provides amazing financial aid.
 

Freshmen: Check out SMASH. It's a summer program for minority students.
 

Stay tuned for more!

Dear CPHS Parents and Guardians,

For the last three years, CPHS has included an RTI (Response to Intervention) period in the CPHS bell schedule. (RTI occurs on Wednesdays and Thursdays for approximately one hour each day.) RTI is a time during the school day in which students can participate in enrichment and/or intervention activities. Most students choose to complete homework, make up tests, or get additional teacher help during this RTI time. Activities in the past include participating in math competitions, planning and presenting Human Rights Assemblies, and receiving information about college and career.

We are interested in knowing if you support RTI and/or if you have ideas for enrichment/intervention activities during this RTI time. Any idea you submit must be related to one of our School-wide Learner Outcomes* (see below)

Please keep in mind that we are limited by our school size, the available facilities, and contract agreements. We have also learned that trying to introduce too many ideas can lead to a breakdown in the system, so please understand that not all supported ideas can be implemented quickly. (Students will be given a separate survey.) 

Thanks for your feedback,
CPHS Staff

RTI Survey for Parents/Guardians
Please complete by Fri., Feb. 2.

*School-wide Learner Outcomes
Please be sure your RTI Idea fits one of these categories:
  • Effective Communicator
  • Community Contributor
  • Complex Thinker
  • Effective and Ethical User of Technology
  • Self-Direct Learner
  • Global Citizen and Responsible Worker
  • Health and Wellness Advocate

Dear College Park,

Between January 4 and January 25, 2018, students using mdusd.net emails addresses were only receiving emails from mdusd.net or mdusd.org email addresses. Any emails from outside email addresses, such as companies and colleges, would not have been received by the student during this period in time.  

 

As this may be a concern to students filling out college applications and/or financial aid forms, we are asking that students be encouraged to check-in with institutions, for status updates, login in to their college portal  directly to see if there are outstanding items needed.

 

While unfortunately, we do not have full access to emails that may have been rejected during this time, we do have a report of emails that were rejected from mdusd.net accounts from .edu email addresses. Ms. Lowe was given a list of email headings and is in the process of reaching out to seniors about potentially urgent matters. Thank you for your support on this unfortunate situation. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

 

Sincerely,

Joshua Wittman

Dear Parents,

Your input is needed and appreciated!

 

Please complete the parent survey with the link below:

https://surveys.wested.org/csps/AH243AA

 

 

What is it?

 

The California School Climate, Health, and Learning Survey (CAL-SCHLS) System comprises three interrelated surveys developed for and supported by the California Department of Education: California Healthy Kids Survey, California School Staff Survey and California School Parent Survey.


These surveys provide schools and districts with critical information about the learning and teaching environment, the health and well-being of students, and supports for parents, school staff, and students that foster learning and school success. When used together, data from these three surveys help assess the needs, concerns, and successes of the whole school community – teachers, students, and parents – and allow schools and districts to compare perceptions about the status of these areas across stakeholder groups.

College Park Library
 

Parents, students and faculty members are encouraged to attend.

 

The AHA! Movement (Anti-Hazing Awareness) was created in memory of Matthew Carrington, who was killed by water hazing while pledging a fraternity in Chico, CA in 2005. He was a student at Ygnacio Valley HS and his younger brother attended College Park. 

In 2017, there were three documented deaths in this country due to fraternity hazing.  The goal of AHA! is to end the senseless and tragic cycle of deaths from hazing by reaching out, empowering and educating young people.  

This Parent Ed night will initiate a productive conversation surrounding the dangers of hazing and how to recognize it, as well as interactive activities. Debbie Smith (Mathew's mother) will share his story, show video, explore alternatives to hazing and end with a Q&A. We will also discuss peer pressure, the difference between hazing and bullying, mindset, group mentality and making better choices.

Why is this important? I'm sending midyear reports based on the applications that are in Naviance, and if you don't have a college application in your account then that important information won't get sent, and that jeopardizes your application.

 

So update Naviance with every college you applied to whether it's a CSU, UC, out-of-state public school, or private school and indicate that you sent your application.

 

Please email me if you have questions, or if you are a student come to my room during lunch.

Thank you,

Ms. Lowe

College Park community, we had a traumatic injury this past Wednesday.

 

Everyone's friend, 16 year old College Park High School Falcon sophomore Ryan Joseph, son of Castro Valley High School and UC Berkeley Alum and Kristin Joseph and De La Salle Hall of Famer and Grinnell College Alum Tom Joseph, suffered a life-changing C4 spinal cord injury in a JV wrestling match this past Wednesday, January 10th, 2018.  Ryan is currently paralyzed from the neck down and requires assistance breathing.  Hopes and prayers are for Ryan to have a speedy recovery and one day regain mobility for independent living.  Ryan is being well-treated at the John Muir Trauma ICU in Walnut Creek. Unfortunately, he is unable to receive visitors at this time, but cards are welcome.  

 

Ryan is well-known by friends, teachers and coaches for his charm, exceptional wit and humor.  His family gives heartfelt thanks for the kindness and support they have received from the many communities Ryan has touched at College Park, Pleasant Hill Middle School where his sister is an 8th grader, and Pleasant Hill Elementary School.  Special thanks to his beloved CP wrestling team where he was a first year JV at 160 pounds, and his CP lacrosse team where he was a freshman JV captain face-off midfielder.  A loyal Golden State Warriors fan, Ryan admires Andre Iguodala for his selflessness, intelligence and willingness to help in any way.  

 

A Go Fund Me for Ryan has been started to help support his family with medical expenses, rehabilitation and home accessibility.  Please help support Ryan in his time of need using the link below:

 

https://www.gofundme.com/help-our-teammate-ryan

 

The family may be contacted through Ryan’s uncle Mike Halket at helpryanjoseph@gmail.com

 

Go Falcons!  

 

*Ryan's dad Tom Joseph coached at De La Salle and his uncle Mike Halket was a  wrestling coach at Dublin HS.

To find out  if you received one, you need to have filled out your FAFSA/Dream Act by Nov. 20 to allow for enough processing time. I can help you set up a Web Grants account after your FAFSA or Dream Act has processed. You will need to know your Social Security number or Dream Act ID.

We will be there from 2:40-4:00pm. Please contact Ms. Lowe  if you have questions.  
 

Attention Seniors who have applied to a CSU or UC campus

You need to check your email on a regular basis. Every school will eventually email you to set up a portal, and you need to create that portal to receive important updates from them. If schools are missing part of your application, they only contact you through those modes of communication. This is very important!

Hello Senior Parents and Senior Falcons!

As you know, after you apply to a CSU (or any college for that matter) you need to send in your official SAT scores from collegeboard. The deadline to send in your SAT scores is not the same as the application deadline (which is tomorrow), but the deadline for SATs varies between each school.

In order for all of your CSUs to receive your SATs, you do not need to send your SAT to each CSU but instead send it using this code on Collegeboard: 3594.

This is really important, because I just found this out and have been telling students differently in workshops. I apologize, but this year CSUs explicitly stated that CSU mentor would be discontinued as their new application Cal State Apply is in use (3594 is the code for CSU Mentor).

Please stop by before school or during lunch if you need assistance, again I apologize for the confusion.

Best,

Ms. Lowe

PS- If you read this even though you took the ACT, you do not need to send your ACT to CSUs using the code 3594, the original rule still applies that when you send your ACT to one school that it will be shared with all the CSUs you applied to

Hello Seniors!

 

If you filled out FAFSA/Dream Act and applied to California colleges, you could be eligible for a Cal Grant! 

 

To find out  if you received one you need to have filled out your FAFSA/Dream Act by Nov. 20th to allow for enough processing time.

 

I can help you set up a Web Grants account after your FAFSA or Dream Act has processed. You will need to know your Social Security number or Dream Act ID. 

 

Come to the computer lab in the library after school on Thursday, December 14th from 2:40-4PM. It takes under ten minutes if you enter in you personal information correctly. Contact Ms. Lowe if you have questions.

If your student is a senior, it is very important that they register for an SAT or ACT as soon as possible. Sites can fill up closer to the registration deadline, and it is unfortunate when a student needs to travel far to take an important test before 7:00am on a Saturday morning. 

In addition, the colleges or universities that your student are applying to will stop accepting test scores that are taken after a certain date. For UCs a student cannot take a test after December 2017 and for CSUs dates are TBA. If your student needs a fee waiver, have them come see Ms. Lowe in the Career Center, S7.

College Park is a large school and one of the best ways to ensure success for your student is to become a part of the community and get involved. So many parents are actively involved during the elementary school years only to find a "disconnect" when their kids reach high school. There are lots of opportunities to stay involved with your child's education.

Hello Falcon Community,

The School Site Council is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the Site Council are elected by their peers. For example, parents elect the parent representatives and teachers elect teachers.

The exact duties of School Site Councils vary from state to state and even between districts in the same state, but Site Councils generally either make decisions or advise the principal on the school budget and the academic or school improvement plan. In addition to academic planning, many Site Councils are also responsible for making decisions about parent engagement, safety and discipline, for examples.
 
Over the course of a year, a typical Council might consider the goals of the school or district and then work with the principal to evaluate the school's progress toward those goals. In this evaluation, the Council might consider school test scores, attendance and discipline records, parent surveys and input from students.

After looking at the big picture of the school's progress, the Council and the principal create a plan for improvement. This plan might involve a new academic program, staff member or parent outreach strategy. For example, one Council might use funds to develop a new math program, while another might decide to hire a reading specialist. Another Council might decide that hiring an additional teacher to reduce class sizes in a particular grade or a parent liaison to get more parents involved would be the best use of its money. Because school budgets are limited and many funds can only be spent in certain ways, there are always tough decisions to make.

College Park's School Site Council meets the last Wednesday of each month from 3:00-4:30pm in the Career Center (located in room S-7). If you should have any questions please contact Principal Alvarez at alvarezj@mdusd.org or at 925-682-7670 ext.3200. We currently have three vacancies for the parent/community member position. 

Please consider nominating yourself or someone else you believe could support CPHS through this vital committee. 

Please click here to download a nomination form. Please submit the nomination form by Wed., Sept. 13 in the evening. Voting ballots will be available at Back-to-School Night or you can get one by coming by the Main Office at College Park.

The final tally count will be made on Wed., Sept. 20.

On behalf of the College Park PTSA, I want to welcome you all to another exciting school year. As your PTSA President, I look forward to meeting and working with parents, teachers, students, and administrators to ensure a successful year for our entire Falcon community. The PTSA is extremely proud of the resources it provides to students and staff. Last year, the PTSA gave more than $13,000 to our school programs and departments. These resources benefit all of our children and it would not be possible without your financial support. 

Our largest (and only) fundraiser of the year is the $100 family donation we ask for at the beginning of each school year. With your help, we can continue to provide funding for academic and elective sections in science, math, English, history, fine arts, technology, and so much more. Click on the link at https://collegeparkptsa.revtrak.net/ or visit the Webstores page of our website to make a donation. Working together, we can make it happen for the 2,000+ students at our school. We invite you to attend our PTSA meetings and to get involved in the myriad of Booster organizations that support our programs. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Respectfully, 
Cindy Turner
College Park PTSA President

ONLINE DATA CONFIRMATION  ** NEW THIS YEAR TO COLLEGE PARK**

 

Online Data Confirmation is a feature of Aeries that allows parents to confirm and update student demographics, contacts, medical conditions, and authorization information through their HomeLink Parent Portal account.  This process handles the normal “Summer Re-Registration” of students where parents are normally required to fill out fresh emergency cards, sign various documents, and establish authorizations.

 

When parents log into the Aeries Parent Portal, Data Confirmation will display in the Student Info Tab dropdown.

 

A Yellow message will also display to the parent on their home page if they have not completed the data confirmation process.

 

If you do not have access to a Parent Portal account, please contact Stacy Boschetti in Attendance @ (925) 682-7670, ext. 3213 or via email at boschettis@mdusd.org to get your verification codes. Attendance will open on August 1st.

Any amount for anywhere would be great (movies, food, or clothing stores). Please drop them off at the office counter at school and they will be put in the Grad Nite mailbox. Thank you everyone!

                As we all know life brings change.  This holds true with our coaching staff.  Long time basketball coach Troy Faulk announced today that he will be stepping down effective immediately.  Coach Faulk shared with the team today at lunch his difficult decision, saying goodbye to a program he has been dedicated to for nine years.  He has always expected his student-athletes to be all in, and has the same expectation for himself.  His new job and family commitments have led him to take some time away from the team and the sport he loves.

                Coach Faulk has coached at College Park since2008, serving as a varsity assistant.  He was on staff for three DVAL championships, and the Nor Cal /State Finals run in 2013.  In 2015 Coach Faulk took over the head job, leading to team to a DVAL championship season, NCS birth and posting a 22-7 record.  During Coach Faulk’s three years as the head coach, they posted a 49-33 overall record, won two DVAL championships, and advanced to NCS each season.

                One of Coach Faulk’s key contributions during his tenure has been the College Park team room in the small gym.  The space has lockers, record boards, team benches, and a flat screen tv for the team to take advantage of.  This room is not only used by the basketball programs but our volleyball teams as well.  Troy made it a priority to push this project to completion with paperwork and fundraising.

                Coach Faulk’s lasting contribution will always be the young men he has mentored during his time here at CP.  He as always asked his players for their best and they have responded in kind.  His professionalism, attention to detail, and passion for the game will be missed.  There were handshakes and a more than a few teary eyes today when Troy spoke to the team. 

Thank you Coach Faulk for your dedication and service here at College Park.  You will be missed.

                We would at the same time like to welcome our new girls’ volleyball coach, Melissa Ralls.  Coach Ralls played for two years at Merced College as a Libero.  She brings seven years of coaching experience to College Park, having coached at the Middle School, High School and club levels.  Coach Ralls currently coaches at Pacific Rim Volleyball Academy in the offseason.  She has met with the team and will be announcing her staff and plans for team workouts shortly.  Coach Ralls fills the position previously held by Kent Perkins who stepped down for family and health reasons.

Dear Falcon Community,

We had a very successful WASC visit and with all our commendations the committee also left us with recommendations and reflective points to follow-up on.

I will be canceling the April 20 "Cup of Joe with Principal Joe" and instead reschedule it so that I can present and dialogue with you an action plan for addressing the recommendations. With your input, I'm sure we can submit a strong action plan to the WASC commission that will guide our work for the future. Please plan on meeting May 5 from 8:00-9:00am in the staff lounge, located adjacent to multi-use room.

Thank you!
Joseph G. Alvarez

If you are the parent of a student that will be attending College Park High School next year, the CPHS PTSA needs YOU!!!  

We desperately need someone to fill the President of the PTSA position. We also need to fill the position of Auditor on next year's PTSA Executive Board. 

In addition to that we need a Volunteer Coordinator, a person to run All In One Day, someone to be in charge of the organic gardens, and an Academic Boosters chair.  

If you'd like to do our community the honor of serving in one of these positions or know of a CPHS parent (or guardian) who would like to do so, please contact Cris Tina Spillett.  Please help us keep the PTSA strong so we can support our school with the extras that make CPHS a wonderful school community

Steve Nixon Memorial Scholarship

                Steve Nixon was a teacher and then a Vice Principal at College Park for over 20 years. Steve embodied fairness, personal improvement, higher education and was a team player. Steve would work with us to make good things happen for the students and staff of College Park. He wanted to get to know people so that he could work with their strengths. Steve considered each person an individual and students a work-in progress.  He would never give up on any student, and would help them become the best possible individual. Steve truly believed that students and their successes were why we came to work each day. Steve cared about students, parents, and staff, then pushed each to excel and was supportive in each of our situations. He was also known for giving compliments at just the right moment, which showed just how much he cared. He made a difference in so many students’ lives.

 

Selection Criteria will be based on an essay application. 

To apply: Write a short essay on one or more of the following:

  • How have you shown resiliency and perseverance in your life?
  • What have you done to improve College Park?
  • How have you overcome obstacles?
  • Why is higher education important to you?

The purpose of the $500 scholarship is to help fund a student’s higher education in Steve’s memory.  Students whom fit the criteria can submit their essay application to Ms. Baker, Ms. Vietor or Ms. Jones at College Park.

 

The application deadline for students will be Friday, April 14, 2017.

Dear College Park Community, 

I would like to commend you, our families, as we continue to have the best students in the district!  Each and every day I am in awe of the quality of our student body, and I am sure this is what our WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) visiting committee will see as well. 

As a reminder, our WASC visit will be March 26-29. We have submitted our self-study to the WASC Commission and have received positive initial feedback from our WASC Chairperson.  This is a fluid document--after the visiting committee has completed their visit, we will have an opportunity to revise our action plan to reflect our strategy to address their feedback and recommendations.  

There is absolutely no reason to think or feel that we will not be continuing as a fully accredited high school.  I thank you for your continued support and if you should have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.

Best Regards,

Joe Alvarez
Principal 
College Park HS
