ASB held an info session last Thursday whereby members of the Irvington High School Associated Student Government (ASG, similar to Horner ASB in functions and purposes) gave a presentation about how current 8th graders can join Irvington ASG in the fall. You can find the presentation here: tinyurl.com/ycjyukzj

 

During the presentation, Irvington ASG also shared important information about the application and selection process for 2 types of positions incoming freshmen can apply for. The application can be found here: tinyurl.com/y7t5xxht

 

  1. Freshman Class Officer: 2 spots available, applicants need to fill out the application, petition sheet, teacher's evaluation, and go through a popular election vote 
  2. Freshman Representative: 2 spots available, applicants need fill out the application, teacher's evaluation, but do not need to fill out the petition sheet or go through a popular election vote

 

IMPORTANT:

  • Freshmen Representative candidates do not need to fill out petition sheet of 100 signatures; only Freshman Class Officer candidates do, as the class officer position is more focused upon gathering class-wide support to drive forward class projects and initiatives in the upcoming year. 
  • For all applicants' Teacher Evaluation sheet, we request that teachers write the applicants' first semester grade in "Grade in Class" section, not the current SchoolLoop grade.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

This is a reminder that our Comprehensive Sexual Education and Health unit will be coming up this spring. This course of study will conform to the guidelines provided by the California State Education Code 51933 and the California Healthy Youth Act.   This is an approximately two week unit designed to:

1.       Provide pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to protect their sexual and reproductive health from HIV and other sexually transmitted infections and from unintended pregnancy.

2.       Provide pupils with the knowledge and skills they need to develop healthy attitudes concerning adolescent growth and development, body image, gender, sexual orientation, relationships, marriage, and family.

3.       Promote understanding of sexuality as a normal part of human development.

4.       Ensure pupils receive integrated, comprehensive, accurate, and unbiased sexual health and HIV prevention instruction and provide educators with clear tools and guidance to accomplish that end.

5.       Provide pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to have healthy, positive, and safe relationships and behaviors.

 

We will be holding a parent info night on Wednesday March 28 from 6-7 in the Horner Library.

At this meeting we will be reviewing the curriculum with the parents and answer any questions you may have.

 

You can also preview the curriculum ahead of time here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XPFTT6nSr-OvEChgGxRY2MZfjTlmtVN2Cr5Cp8h7mMQ/edit

 

 

Tentative Instructional Dates for the Unit:

7th Grade: April 30-May 11, 2018

8th Grade: May  21-June 5, 2018

 

 

 

 

NOTE: State law allows parents/guardians to opt their student out of any or all comprehensive sexual health education lessons. Students opting out of comprehensive sexual health education lessons will be provided alternate curriculum under the supervision of a credentialed teacher.

If you do not want your student to participate in comprehensive sexual health education, you must provide, in writing (email or on paper), a note to your student’s teacher no later than April 20th.

Parent-Teacher Conferences:

 

A parent/guardian-teacher conference is a meeting between you and your child’s teacher(s) to discuss his/hers progress in school. The purpose of these conferences is to show your support for their education goals. These conferences are meant to be a brief discussion about their progress in the class. Our teachers work hard to value each parent's time and to manage the conference time to ensure they are able to meet with all parents. If you would like a more extended conference, we recommend that you discuss with the teacher for another time that allows a longer opportunity to meet and discuss your student’s unique needs.

 

Report cards were distributed to students last week. Parents can also check School Loop as the 1st quarter grades are posted there.

 

Wednesday, Nov. 15th       LAST NAMES: A-L     1:45 – 5:00 p.m. and  5:30 – 8:15 p.m.

 

Thursday, Nov. 16th          LAST NAMES: M-Z     1:45 – 5:00 p.m. and  5:30 – 8:15 p.m.

 

Note- Teachers will have a dinner break from 5:00 - 5:30 PM and will not be available during that time for

conferences.  Please plan accordingly.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

I hope the First Day of School went well for you and your family. We are excited to start the school year and are looking forward to the coming months. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or issues so far.

As I’m sure you are aware, an Excessive Heat Advisory has been declared throughout the Bay Area for today and tomorrow. The safety of your children while on our campus is always priority number one among our staff. We are looking at a number of ways to deal with the weather including limiting outdoor activity to shady/covered areas, indoor, low-impact PE classes, and encouraging students to drink plenty of water during the day. Hydration is crucial during this time so please consider a few extra glasses of water this evening and before school tomorrow morning.

We appreciate your cooperation and support as we kick off the school year and work through these temporary high temperatures. Please call the front office with any concerns.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. Holmes

Principal
