Scholars and DP Updates
March 22, 2016
If you're not a senior, definitely no excuses! It's always going to be almost the end of something. Keep up on your deadlines; see me, your counselor or another teacher if you feel the stress building to an unhealthy level; and try to support each other. I believe you can do it, and I hope you do, too.
AP Test registration deadline Wednesday
If you haven't, registration forms are available outside Mrs. Mathews' room, and no parent signature is required. Fill out the form and pay at least $20 per test (total will be $92 each) at the student store or to the bookkeeper.
If you qualify for free/reduced lunch, you only pay $5 total per test, but you must already have the white eligibility packet signed by a parent/guardian, plus the notification form from the district.
Seniors, there are some test date conflicts. I'll send you a separate email with the full calendar and your options.
CAS meetings for 11th & 12th
There will be a mandatory CAS Seniors meeting during first lunch on Friday, March 25. Have you been working on your reflections in ManageBac?
There will be mandatory CAS Juniors meetings during both lunches and after school on Thursday, March 24. You may come to whichever meeting is convenient to your schedule. We will be discussing the CAS project.
Juniors in search of CAS ideas should take a look at the CTE Makeover Challenge sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education. If you'd like to learn more about makerspaces, this is a great opportunity to do so. The challenge could be done by a group and would fulfill several CAS requirements. Your group might create such a great design that you win funding to bring it to life for Inderkum!
Personal Project updates for 10th
Service learning for 9th & 10th
There are a multitude of ways to find service opportunities, but one of the best is to join YAC/PLAY through the city's District One office. Elena Quintero is a champion volunteer, and she is ready to put you to work. Find out more by following the link.
Summer Art Class
The Sac State College of Continuing Education added two new subjects to their Summer Academies for High School Students. Check out Farm to Fork (F2F) and Ecology of Water along with the many established academies.
Freshmen, don't forget this is your last summer of eligibility for Sac State's ATS program.
Education Unlimited offers a wide range of programs at a variety of prestigious campuses. These are on the pricier side, but you may qualify for financial assistance.
Scholarships--not just for seniors!
OCA Sacramento provides scholarships to students ages 5-22, in four divisions.
The only way to win scholarships is to apply, apply, apply... Search around and look for reliable scholarship matching sites, but you should never pay for scholarship opportunities. Check our our Career Center in A119 to find more information.

Please consider signing up for Remind texts, especially if you don’t check your email regularly. I mainly use them to tell you when to look for a message from me. Be sure to sign up for the correct group! Everyone sends to the same number, 81010, but you enter different messages, including the @ signs.
Freshmen students sign up using @sch2019stu and freshmen parents use @sch2019par. Sophomore students use @sch2018stu and sophomore parents use @sch2018par. Junior students use @sch2017stu and junior parents use @sch2017par. Senior students use @sch2016stu and senior parents use @sch2016par.
