For Planning Purposes

 






Dear Families,

Update:
The month of August brings our staff together into conversations regarding updating current curriculum, course offerings, schedules, orientation, and professional development. The excitement and anticipation continue to grow as new student applications have begun arriving at our registrar's office. Time to start pumping up, though we are still clinging to our last summer weeks of last minute travel, beach and surf time, and family get-togethers, we are also thinking ahead to the first day of school. Here are few reminders for you to note, and please continue to enjoy your last several weeks of summer relaxation!

First day of school: Monday, August 28. 
First day of recorded homeschooling for the Fall semester.

Orientation for 11/12th-grade students is scheduled for Friday, August 25 starting at 10:00 am

Orientation for 9/10th-grade students is scheduled for Monday, August 28 starting at 10:00 am





POWERSCHOOL
The Charter Office will be sending you an email in early August to remind you to update your contact information through PowerSchool, beginning August 5th.

This coming school year, students will not be able to start participation in their programs until that information has been submitted.  This registration gives us the updated information we need for your child’s health and emergency contacts, among other things. Please register as soon as you get the email reminder, try not to procrastinate. 



Danelle, Holly and Rhonda will be in the office starting August 7, and available if you have any questions or problems when completing your child’s enrollment.

This year, we need to have 100% of our parents on PowerSchool. This is one vital component of keeping-up with your student.

Once we have 100%, we will be training parents and all new & returning students in Schoology. We will start the year with a "class" that both parent and student will take together.

Upon this course completion, students may begin their onsite and independent study classes.




STAFF UPDATE
We welcome Rory McKee to Coast Redwood High School as our new academic school counselor. Rory will be available on Fridays and during our Meeting of The Tribes. More information in the fall.


KEEP YOUR MEMOIR IN A SAFE PLACE
Students will continue to build upon their Memoir and Senior Exit Portfolio this coming school term. This year's theme is "Exploring Historical and Scientific Events."


ORGANIZE YOUR GOOGLE DOCs
Over the summer students may wish to get started organizing their google docs by placing them into folders titled by academic area. Keeping documents organized and in folders will be a skill students will take with them through high school, into college and into the workplace.


SUMMER READING
Please remember to read over the summer! Student's may track their reading (pages and number of novels) in a Google Doc to turn-in at a later date. Outside reading goals: 1,500 pages!
