Annual Awards and Scholarship Evening

All Anzar parents and students are cordially invited to the annual Awards and Scholarship Evening: Wednesday, May 27, at 6:30 PM in the Gym. All families of students receiving an award or scholarship have been sent a letter invitation in the mail, in the past month. If you have any questions about this evening, please contact the Principal or the front office.

Principal's Corner: May, 2015

Welcome to the last monthly update of the school year! In addition to the updated articles and event dates on this homepage, please be aware of the following timely Anzar news:

It has been an incredibly busy past month here at Anzar, for students and staff. Just to re-cap, we hosted our first annual conference, we supported the ASJ Foundation's annual fundraiser at the Aromas Grange, we participated in the Leon Panetta Lecture series, students of 9-11th grade went on college field trips, the Booster's ran their annual Crab and Pasta Feed/Silent Auction fundraiser, we had a Work Day, Seniors had their final round of exhibitions, and we started our school's required testing. Whew!

- Spring sports are almost over! : Golf has finished, and track and swim finals are this week. Softball and Baseball finish up this week, as well. See updated games/matches listed on the School Loop (website) calendar on this home page.

-The last round of Graduation Exhibitions is set for Tuesday May 19 - Friday May 22. With mostly juniors presenting, the issues are all content-based/ researched. The line-up for presentations will be published on the home page on Tuesday, May 12. Good luck to all students presenting; we are proud of you!

-Testing at Anzar: Sophomores have taken the state-required Life Science test already. The Common Core testing, called "Smarter Balanced" tests, are halfway complete: the juniors need to take these tests, and they have completed the English/ Language Arts portion already. The Math tests will happen the week after Memorial Day weekend. The Smarter Balanced tests are mostly on-line, and have gone smoothly, with minimal technological glitches. Lastly, the Advanced Placement tests are currently underway, on the dates set by the College Board. This year, Anzar is offering the AP Spanish Language, the AP Calculus A/B, the AP Calculus B/C, the AP Biology, and the AP Language/Composition tests. Parents should be assured that all Anzar teachers are actively involved in the thoughtful education and preparation of their students for these tests. And we applaud our student scholars for taking all tests seriously and conscientiously.

-Anzar Seniors have all decided on their college plans for next year, and registration and enrollments are complete or underway. Seniors have also been busy applying for scholarships, most of which have past deadlines now. .....

-On that note, please make sure that you come to the annual Awards and Scholarship Evening here in our Gym, at 6:30 PM, on Wednesday, May 27. All families of students receiving awards (course awards for grades 9 - 12) and Scholarships have been sent invitation letters in the mail. We aim for 100% attendance for this evening's award winners, as it's an honor to be a recipient.

-Congratulations to Anzar's 2014 - 2015 Teacher of the Year: Gregory Hunter Braithwaite.

-As I type this, the sophomores are embarked on their annual overnight field trip to Los Angeles, where they will be touring the Museum of Tolerance/ Holocaust Museum. Always a meaningful curricular experience, we give extra kudos to instructors Vicki Morris and Greg Braithwaite, and adult chaperones Donna Netzel and Steve Io, for taking the extra time and effort to make this opportunity possible for our students.

-Sign-ups for Summer School have begun. Paperwork is available on brightly-colored green and yellow paper at the front office round counter. The dates are June 17 - July1 (Semester 1) and July 2 - July 17 (Semester 2/ no school on July 3). It runs from 8:15 AM to 1:15 PM, and is governed by strict attendance protocols. Please contact your student's Advisor if you need scheduling information, or Mr. Braithwaite (the Summer School Principal) if you need logistical information.

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

Attention Seniors! Did you order Your CAP and GOWNS? If not, you've missed the extended deadline. See your Advisor immediately! (gowns available for borrowing, at no cost, in the office)

YEARBOOKS ARE IN!! Buy one next week, before distribution!!

The yearbooks are now $60 until June, and they HAVE ARRIVED! Students/families can purchase them on-line at Jostens.com or (more efficient at this point) in the front office, via hardcopy orders. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!! Don't miss out!

Mandatory Tutorial: contracts revised, beginning Tues. May 5th!

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 received an F in a class on their fourth grading period progress report must attend Mandatory Tutorial in that class on either Tuesday or Thursday, as assigned. All said students will have Mandatory Tutorial contracts in place by the first Tuesday of the new (and last) grading period post grades, which is Tuesday, May 5. They are intended to be signed by students and parents, but are enforced whether or not the original contract is returned signed. Students are eligible to pop out of M.T. at the next grading period, 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.
