Dress Code Alert!! All students and parents please read!
It's hot outside!! That said, Anzar females need to be mindful of dress code. Most of the shorts being worn at school today are too short for school. Parents: please assist us with this! The dress code (see handbook) was created by Anzar teachers and it exists for a super good purpose: we have promised to offer instruction and education to all students free of distraction. Too-short shorts, crazy thin strap tops, and bras in plain view are NOT the definition of "free of distraction." Thank you for understanding and supporting. We will be calling home beginning on Monday, Aug. 31 for girls who are in clear defiance of the dress code, asking parents to bring in alternative clothing. Help us avoid this unpleasant step. Thank you!
Student Parking alert!
All students must park on the gym side of the parking lot. This is necessary to enforce closed campus effectively. While we had asked students to park on the gravel side this year (for the first time), we did not realize at the time at how deadly and persistent the thorny weeds were on the gravel area. Students can now park on the paved area opposite the gravel, first-come, first-served in the morning. Spill over will have to be on the gravel. In addition, any student who violates the closed campus rules during the school year will be assigned the gravel area as a consequence. Thank you for your patience and understanding.I think this is a suitable compromise for improved campus safety AND less wear and tear on driver's shoes/heels/tires, etc.
Valedictorian Christopher Inokuchi: check out his speech!
It truly takes a lot to "wow" a high school graduation crowd, but many Anzar staff agree that this is the best graduation speech we've ever heard. We are amazed and impressed at brilliant Christopher Inokuchi's humility and the authenticity of his speech. Enjoy it by clicking on the link: Valedictorian Christopher Inokuchi's graduation speech.docx
Principal's Corner: August/Sept., 2015
WELCOME BACK!! We're ready for an amazing new school year! If you are new to Anzar this year, please consider this a warm and genuine invitation to involve yourself as much a possible in our school's programs. You can start by checking this website (especially this homepage/calendar) regularly, staying abreast of what is current at Anzar. Please make sure that SEPT. 16 is on your calendar for Back to School Night 2015. See you then!
-A new opportunity for community members of Aromas and San Juan Bautista is taking place right here on our campus! Beginning on Monday August 24, Anzar is offering a once-a-week after-school Woodshop course AND a Studio Art course, open to both high school students and community adults. For more information, see the link in the box to the left of this column! We are so pleased at the healthy response for both courses.
-We welcome four new teachers this year: Fitness teacher Mark Cisneros, English teachers Rosemary Lopez and Stephanie Jones, and Resource Specialist Linda Hanks. Stephanie will also be teaching Photography and Video Production ("Multi-Media") this coming year, along with being the Yearbook Advisor.
-Anzar's two new classrooms are up and running! They are two "gently worn" portables moved from the Aromas School campus, and we are happy to have them, because for the first time in our tenure, multiple teachers won't have to move from room to room during their school day. We're hoping to add some cosmetic touches (trim paint to match the rest of the school, covering the rest of the dirt in front of them to protect the brand new carpets that were installed, doing something with the marked up walls inside, etc.), but teachers Debra Miller and Robert Huneywell have worked wonders inside and classes were running smoothly the first day of school.
-All parents are encouraged to make sure they have School Loop accounts as soon as possible this fall. Directions for registration can be found in the left column of this homepage. If your internet is spotty at home, or you don't have internet at home, it's still a great idea to sign in. You can come to the school office and we will help you do this. All parents are welcome to use office computers to check on their students' progress, at any time. School Loop is an excellent way to stay aware of student grades/ progress, upcoming assignments, missing assignments, and calendarized events of all types at the school. It's an easy and efficient way to contact teachers, as well.
-The Anzar Boosters have chosen the purchase of additional heavy-duty tables/benches for the quad as their primary "gift" to the school lastyear. Identified as a tangible need for our campus, this is a wonderful help to our students, in a very practical way. Thank you to the Boosters, on behalf of our entire student and staff population. Just about now, you should be deciding for yourself that this is an amazing group that YOU WANT TO BE PART OF NEXT YEAR! See you at the first Booster meeting in the fall!
-As always, please don't hesitate to contact me directly through School Loop if you have any questions or concerns about any aspect of the school and/or this month's information here. I love meeting and talking with you! Charlene McKowen, Principal
