Less Than A Month To Graduation
Hello Phoenix families,
Last Friday's prom was a special night for all students in attendance. The venue was beautiful, the students were "dressed to the nines," the dancing was fun, and the refreshments were yummy. Overall it was a wonderful memory for our seniors and a fabulous first prom for our juniors. Congratulations to our prom court: Hersh, Bren, Mars, and Camryn! You were a wonderful court.
Freshmen and Sophomores, remember you are dismissed tomorrow during your lunch time (Freshmen 11:45, Sophomores 12:45) as there are not any college classes because of Moorpark College's inservice day.
Don't forget to buy your grad bash tickets and mark your calendars for our HSMC awards night (May 11th) and graduation (May 20th).
This week we continue with CAASPP testing and our Seniors have mock interviews on Friday.
Have a wonderful week, Phoenix families!
KEEP UP WITH YOUR GRADES!
As we near the end of the semester, please ask your student to check Canvas and Q Gradebook regularly.
Any errors or questions should be reported to the HSMC teachers as soon as possible.

ATTENTION GRADUATING SENIORS
Dear MUSD 12th Grade Student
As you have now completed your education here in MUSD, your Google account will become inactive on May 20th.
This message contains information about the procedure to transfer your documents, e-mail, and sites that you created in your MUSD account to a private Google account. This is something that you want to take care of as soon as possible because your MUSD Google Apps for Education account will be closing on the last day of school (May 20, 2022).
Here's a quick checklist of things you need to do in order to not lose any valuable files:
If you don’t already have one, create a personal Google account on a personal device as you cannot login to a personal Gmail profile on a district Chromebook.
Start migrating e-mails and Google Drive files to your personal Google account using Google Transfer and Takeout. Below, you will find a Youtube tutorial on how to transfer your files.
Transfer ownership of any Google Sites you may have created to your new Google account.

A GREAT OPPORTUNITY
The Southern California Academy of Sciences is running it's Research Training Program (RTP) for the 2022-2023 academic year. We invite you to visit the SCAS website to learn more about this program which is intended for highly motivated high school students who are considering careers in science. The application is on the website which can be accessed by clicking on the button below.
This program pairs high school students with research mentors around the Southern California area to carry out research projects designed by the students and their mentors. The work culminates in a research paper and a presentation at the SCAS annual meeting alongside professional researchers and college students at all levels. It is an incredible opportunity for your curious science-minded students, particularly if they are looking for ways to distinguish themselves at the high school level. Also, the top student presenters are chosen to represent SCAS at the national meeting of the American Junior Academy of Sciences, which is held concurrently with the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences annual meeting, the largest science meeting in the world. At the AJAS meeting, students interact with other young scientists from around the country and share their research experience in oral and poster presentations.
