Attention: Parents of Anzar Seniors!
Please be advised that if your student is applying to a California State University (CSU) or a UC (University of California), that the deadline for applications is fast upon us- November 30, 2014. Cal-SOAP Advisor Brenda Garibay and Anzar senior advisors have been working closely with students as they apply, keeping the library open late a few days and offering extra assistance with actual application/submission as well as personal statements and essays. Don't hesitate to contact the office, administration, or your advisor if you have any questions about this.

Mandatory Tutorial is on! Updated November 13, 2014 (please read)
When students are not achieving academically, we want to make sure that we, as a school, have formal interventions in place to support all students sufficiently. Any student that receives an F in a class at the time of Progress Reports must attend Mandatory Tutorial in that class on either Tuesday or Thursday, as assigned. All said students have Mandatory Tutorial contracts in place. They are intended to be signed by students and parents, but are enforced whether or not the original contract is returned signed. The second grading period's contracts began Thursday, Nov. 13. Students are eligible to pop out of M.T. at the next grading period (the end of the first semester), if they are then passing the class. Not intended to be seen as punishment, rather M.T. is set up to support and assist the failing students individually. Please call the office if you have any questions about this. Attendance is mandatory for contracted students; it is still part of the school day. *FYI: for this grading period, some seniors who have D grades in the semester Global Issues class are required to attend Tutorial on Tuesdays, as their graduation is in jeopardy with such a low grade. In addition, students with a D in Pre-Calculus are also being required to attend Tutorial on Thursdays, if the instructor has indicated that there is missing homework. Inconsistency with homework is not acceptable in Pre-Calculus.
If you need help with your college applications, Cal-SOAP is here to help! Let your advisor know, then go see Brenda (in Rm. 709/ Ms. Cruz's office, the new College-Career Center). Brenda Garibay is on campus Tuesday mornings, from 9 - 1 PM, and Thursday afternoons, from 11 AM - 3 PM. You can also loopmail her any questions through School Loop. ANY students who have ANY questions about college are also welcome to stop by.
