Middle College Update

Quick reminders before the break!


Happy holidays, students and families!

We've just about made it through finals and the college application period for seniors :-) We're wrapping up tasks in the office today and then will be on break until Jan.11.

Grades will post on January 6; students can check their college grades in WebSmart and their high school grades in Infinite Campus. We will begin updating transcripts when we return on January 11 and then send out the transcripts as soon as they are finished. If a student earns a D/F in a college class, we will change the spring schedule so she/he can repeat that class in order to replace the grade. Additionally, we may need to change a student's placement due to grades per the MC contract. For seniors, they will also need to notify the colleges to which they've applied.

We start Middle College classes on Monday, January 11 at 10:30. We are jumping right in with curriculum and assignments. Classes will run from 10:30-1:00 that week and revert to the afternoon the following week when college classes start.

We may or may not have Chris as our staff assistant when we return in January. The hours of the position have changed and now conflict with his schedule, so we're not sure what will happen for second semester. Please be patient as we work through these changes.

Finally, we will begin recruiting for next year's cohort in January. Can you believe it will be our 18th year?! Over the years, we've found that our best method of recruiting is word of mouth -- students and parents telling other students and parents about Middle College. Our first information meeting is Thursday, 1/21. The meeting is at 6:30 pm in the SUHSD Board Room, located at 480 James Ave. in Redwood City. If you know of any sophomores who might be interested in MC, please send them the flyer linked below or let them know about our upcoming information meetings.

Thank you!
