TRACK & FIELD RESULTS FROM MT. SAC RELAYS!!!!

RECAP FROM COACH GATES:

14 Eagle Tracksters traveled to Torrance, California to participate in the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays this past weekend. This was a greater number than the 11 we took last year - a sign of an improving program. Another sign? We came back with 3 SCHOOL RECORDS!!!

If there was one name to remember from our journey there, it would most certainly be that of Sophomore powerhouse Nick Myers... Nick was EVERYWHERE!!!

This tremendous young man competed in 3 events, and in doing so, scored a PR, going 1:58.64 in his Top 10 finish in the 800m. The other two events were the 4x800m Relay (with Sami Araya, Joe Blakely, and Andrew Jackson) and 4x1600m (with Sami Araya, Blake Miller, and Aidan Singh). Both of these performances were good for School Records. The 4x800m Relay also finished in the Top 10.

Other Top 10 Performances were turned in by Junior Eby Ifyefobi (Discus), Senior Josh Smith (Discus), and, while academic, our Men's 1600 SMR (Oliver Gates, Andrew Jackson, Brock Miller, and Joe Blakely) - which also set a school record.

Our other events:
- Women's 4x1600m (
Kaylie Pak, Bella Martinez, Grace Erbe, Rachel Victor)
- Katelyn
Cuneo - High Jump

I am TREMENDOUSLY proud of these kids. They gave their all out there and selflessly thought enough of their teammates to spend Easter morning traveling back.

Special thanks for Brock Miller, Alison DeWolfe, and Emily DeWolfe, who, though not selected, came anyway (spikes and uniforms in hand) and contributed!!

PGTP Present Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon is OPEN! **Buy Your Tickets Ahead of Time!**

 

Oh, fairy tales! They rouse a nostalgic feeling and transport you to a happier, simpler time. Unless, of course, you read the fairy tales in their original forms.

 

The Grimm brothers collected over 209 fairy tales, so Don Zolidis inked a fast-paced, comedic piece that attempts to tell them all, in their original form, within an hour and a half!

 

But Zolidis does not stop there, this piece REQUIRES audience participation! If you plan to sit back and merely watch the performance, the narrators will get you!

 

With over 40 cast and crew members participating in this show, it will surely knock your socks off! Come laugh until you cry tears of joy!

 

General admission is $10 & $8 with ASB 

 

Discount Show on Wed., March 22nd @ 4:30 for $8

 

Poster created by  Ms. Om's Studio 2-D AP student, Thuy. Did you notice how she included the fairy tale titles?!? 

 

Mr. Tosta's AP Art class painted stunning backdrops--over 80 feet of art!!! 

 

Mark your calendars! Don't miss out!

CRC Class on PGHS Campus-Spring 2017

We have a very exciting opportunity for the spring semester at PGHS. We will have another CRC college course taught on our campus this spring. The class is great for students that are going directly to a 4-year college OR starting at a community college.  Nutrition 300 will be offered.  This course studies the basic science of human nutrition and its application to health and chronic diseases. It examines the sources and functions of micro- and macronutrients nutrients, including digestion, absorption, and transportation. Emphasis is placed on the health implications associated with dietary patterns, phytonutrient intake, consumption of whole foods, the impact of processing, and consequences of under and overconsumption. The course will also include topics such as nutrition as a world and consumer problem, weight loss, sports nutrition, food safety, and the diet-disease relationship, among others.

 

The class will begin January 17th and run through May 16th, and be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:50 PM. This course is a great way to start college credits and is CSU and UC transferable. The class is also FREE, with the exception of a 5.00 processing fee. Students will be responsible for payment of the course materials (book). To participate in this program a student must be 16 or have completed their sophomore year and have a cumulative GPA of 2.76.  Note: this class will NOT be included on your PGHS transcript, it starts your college transcript.  College courses look great on college applications!

 

If you are interested this class, it will be available on a first come-first served basis. Please sign up in the Career Center by Thursday, 11/10 . We will be calling all students in to do the application process together. All forms must be signed by a parent and then returned to the counseling office by November 18th.

Time to Sell Chocolate!!! Oregon Shakespeare Festival Fundraiser!

Message from Mr. Sandoval: 

 

 

The Chocolate is here guys! 

 

This Field Trip is AMAZING, if you haven't spoken with your parents about it, do so now!

 

If you missed the meeting, that's perfectly okay. The cost of the trip is $375, which includes room and board, along with all shows and workshops. 

 

Some of my best memories in all of High School took place on this trip, and I would love to share that experience with all of you. 

 

Now to the important stuff, for every box of chocolate you sell, you will receive $30 toward the cost of your trip. For example if you set your goal to sell a box a week until school starts, you will be at $300. Ask your parents to sell them at work, this is one of the easiest ways to sell!

 

Ms. Brown will be on campus for summer school, and would gladly meet with you (by appointment), just shoot her a LoopMail to schedule that anytime during the week to pick up a box. I will be here on Mondays (if necessary) to hand out Chocolate from 11:00-12:00. 

 

Before taking a box, you will sign an form acknowledging that you are responsible for the chocolate!

 

It's perfectly likely I didn't add everyone who would be interested in this trip, tell your friends (taking Theater next year) about this opportunity! Also, tell your friends, as it's also possible many students won't be checking SchoolLoop.

CSUS LegiSchool Project’s 2016 Real World Civics Summer Internship Program!!!

Hey Juniors & Seniors - check out the internship opportunity below.  Several PG students have participated in this summer program.  It's a great chance to learn about our government and it also can add something substantial for you to include on your college applications.

 

Applications are now available online: http://www.csus.edu/calst/real_world.html

 

About the Internship:

Open to Sacramento area students currently enrolled as a junior or senior, this exciting five week internship gives students a chance to learn firsthand about each of the three branches of government.

 

We encourage students to learn by doing. To that end, interns spend two weeks in the Legislature, two weeks in the Executive branch and one week exploring the Judicial branch through our Court Camp program.  The internship runs from June 22nd - July 29th and the students earn a $350 stipend (paid upon successful completion of the program).  This experience is truly one-of-a-kind and an excellent opportunity for young people to learn more about state government and political happenings in California. 

 

The application postmark deadline is Friday, April 8th.

Should Your Student Bring a Doctor's Note to School?

YES! If your student has been ill, has a health condition, a temporary injury or a concussion your student needs to bring a note from his/her doctor. This note should be brought to the Health Office located in the Student Services building or presented to the Health Clerk at PGHS.

Academic Decathlon needs C (GPA 0-2.99) students!

Hi everyone! 

If you're interested and joining the Academic Decathlon team but you don't have the best grades - that's okay!

Academic Decathlon consists of 9 team members, Honors (3.75–4.00 GPA), Scholastic (3.00–3.74 GPA), and Varsity (0.00–2.99 GPA). We generally have a shortage of C students.

I think Academic Decathlon is a great investment for college applications and becoming part of a community - I joined last year as a junior, the most difficult academic year of my life, and left with no regrets! I've grown extremely close to past team mates and have gotten to know a handful of teachers. So if this peaks your interest, send me a loopmail or see Mrs. Holy at HK4

JOIN THE RED CROSS YOUTH BOARD!

Hey everyone! I'm Tonya Nguyen, a senior here at Pleasant Grove. I'm part of Pleasant Grove's Red Cross Club as a regular member and I'm the Secretary of our county's Youth Board. The Red Cross Youth Executive Board application finally LIVE!! If you're interested in connecting with students from other high schools, creating district wide events, and becoming part of a team - while doing community service - the YEB is for you!

Last year, I joined the Publicity Committee with little experience and was even close to not applying. But, I'm glad I did it. As part of the YEB, I was able to meet other students who were just as passionate about service and safety. I learned to work on a team, network with other individuals, and create a website! I even created posters that were later plastered on the walls of various schools. Overall, I think applying and becoming part of YEB is worth the 2 minutes.

ALUMNI BAND COMING TO PG - IN THE QUAD @ FOOD FAIRE WEDNESDAY 9/24

COMING TO PG IN THE QUAD ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH!

 

CAPTAIN NOMAD....STARRING CLASS OF 2010 ALUMNI WILL CRAIG AND MANAGED BY CLASS OF 2010 ALUMNI GARRETT MARENGO!!!  https://www.facebook.com/CaptainNomad

 

The classic and generic beach sound that has echoed throughout California 
since the Beach Boys decades ago can be found in these hippie minded musicians. Captain Nomad is mostly notable for their unique sound and incredible vocals led by Will Craig. This Indie Pop Rock band allows for your mind to travel down a gnarly nostalgic path, while still providing punches of happiness from their lyrics that seemingly always assimilate to your own life. The best thing about Captain Nomad is their ability to use so many instruments in their performances, implementing the usage of the banjo, keyboard, bass, drums, and acoustic guitar. If you’re confused about who Captain Nomad really is, give their newest EP, Beachside, a listen the next time you find yourself at the beach in Lake Tahoe or driving down the coast through Monterey or Santa Cruz, from there everything starts to make a lot more sense.

IN ADDITION TO PG @ LUNCH...WHILE IN SACRAMENTO...ONE NIGHT ONLY...WEDNESDAY, 9/24... CAPTAIN NOMAD WILL BE PLAYING AT THE GOLDEN BEAR @ 8:30, 2326 K STREET...SUPPORT PG ALUMNI...COME CHECK THEM OUT!!! :)

The Elk Grove Unified Board of Education (EGUSD) would like to invite interested applicants to serve in one of three open positions on the Board’s advisory Finance Committee.

“We welcome community involvement in our District and appreciate the dedication of those individuals who take an opportunity to serve in this area of public education,” said EGUSD Board President Priscilla S. Cox.

The Committee provides community input that is shared with the Board of Education. It is comprised of community members appointed by each Board member and the Superintendent and three community members appointed by the entire Board of Education. Finance Committee Members serve two-year terms.

The Committee is assisted by non-voting district staff members including the Associate Superintendent of Finance and School Support, Director of Fiscal Services and other staff as needed. Student representatives from the District’s high schools provide feedback on financial impact at their school sites.

The functions of the Finance Committee are to:

  • review the annual budget and interim financial reports and comment when deemed necessary;
  • provide opinions on current fiscal strategies for the district;
  • identify potential fiscal problems and refer them to the Board of Education for analysis;
  • provide an annual written report of the committee’s activities to the Board;
  • provide any oral presentations to the BOE at the Board’s request or at the committee’s initiative; and
  • serve as an ad hoc resource or provide specific research or study as requested by the Board.

Applicants must live within the District’s 320 square mile boundary and be 18-years-old or over.

AP World History Summer Assignment

Here is a good question from a 2013-14 APWH student that has started their summer work:

I was wondering if I am allowed to print out the summer work outline pages and hand write the notes on that page, instead of using binder paper.

Yes, that is the correct way :)  

1.  Print outlines

2.  Write notes on your printed outlines

3.  Story questions will be written on binder paper

It is not too late to sign up for AP Economics next year.

Good Morning,

This is just a reminder that it is not too late to sign up for AP Economics next year.

There are many benefits to the class including;

*Two AP classes in one (Micro and Macro) mean you get twice the college credit if you pass the tests.

*Work load is light, you'll have homework between one to two nights a week on average, sometimes less, and there are no major projects or papers.

*If you are considering majoring in Business, Finance, Accounting, Political Science, or any other Social Science major, this will look great in your college application.

* You are well supported through tutoring and other activities to ensure to have the best chance of being successful.

*The class is fun and relevant to events that are happening right now in your life. 

If you have any questions about the class or would like to sign up for next year please see me, Ms Hatfield in room HK4 or your counselor.

I hope to see you next year!

Peer Tutors Needed

 Attention Sophomores and Juniors:

  • Are you looking for a class to fill an empty spot in your schedule?
  • Are you planning to attend a 4 year college after graduation – do you need an opportunity to demonstrate your leadership skills?
  • Do you work well with others?
  • Are you patient and supportive?
  • Do you excel in an academic subject?
  • Do you want to make a difference?  Do you want to be more than a TA?

 

If so…then we have a job for you!

 

The PGHS AVID  and English Language Learner programs arelooking for motivated, responsible, juniors and seniors who have a free period in their schedule next year.  The primary responsibility of a  Peer tutor is to work with small groups of high school or junior high school students who need extra help in Math (Pre-algebra – Algebra II), Science (general science – chemistry), English, history and World Languages.  AVID peer tutors are academically successful students who can serve as positive role models for their younger peers.   

 

As part of the AVID program, peer tutors will also receive assistance with the college admission process and can accompany AVID classes on any college field trips (next spring our AVID class will visit colleges in Southern California).

 

Students interested in becoming Peer Tutors next year can apply online by clicking the link below.

School Accountability Report Card

 

School Accountability Report Cards Available

 

The current School Accountability Report Card (SARC) is available online at the Elk Grove Unified School District website at http://www.egusd.net/schools/sarcs/index.cfm Both a long detailed format and a short executive summary are posted for parents to learn more about the schools in our community. 

Each school’s SARC summarizes the school's mission, goals, accomplishments, and highlights the school’s unique programs.  In addition, state law requires that the SARC contain all of the following: demographic data, school safety and climate for learning information, academic data, school completion rates, class sizes, teacher and staff information, curriculum and instruction descriptions, postsecondary preparation information, fiscal and expenditure data.

The federal No Child Left Behind law requires that SARCs contain reports concerning the "adequate yearly progress" of students in achieving state academic achievement standards; Title I Program Improvement status; graduation rates at the secondary level; and the extent to which "highly qualified" teachers are teaching core academic subjects.

A hard copy of these reports can be requested by visiting your child’s school office.  Additionally, these reports have been translated in Spanish and Hmong at schools with large populations of families who speak these languages.  Any questions regarding the SARCs can be answered by your child’s principal or by contacting Learning Support Services at 686-7712.

EGUSD middle and high school students launch new anti-cyberbullying campaign

EGUSD middle and high school students launch new anti-cyberbullying campaign

 

ElkGrove Unified School District’s 7-12 grade students are taking a stand. Starting November 5, 2012, high school and middle school students throughout the district are stepping up as a school community to inspire others to challenge and delete cyberbullying.

Today's students live in a digital world. This new student designed, student driven campaign -- #UnfolllowBullying -- is in recognition that students are the ones who will lead the charge in their online communities to ensure that all students are treated with respect and kindness.  The campaign commences with a week of activities and promotions at various school sites. Students will be encouraged to continue the campaign throughout the school year.

The initial idea for a student-led campaign came from the EGUSD Internet Safety Task force. This group of staff, law enforcement and parent representatives felt that the most effective way to reach students is through their peers. 

With that in mind, Superintendent Steven M. Ladd, Ed.D., asked his student advisory committee to select a digital citizenship campaign topic, create a name and design a campaign during their four meetings in the 2011-2012 and one in the 2012-2013 school years. Students selected cyberbullying as the topic of focus. They brainstormed a number of campaign names, before selecting #UnfollowBullying.

What does the # (hastag) mean?  In the social media world, the # (hashtag) symbol represents an online trending topic.  Students felt that by using the hashtag as part of their campaign name, they are speaking to students on their terms.

Although the campaign is student led, it is not limited to students. The #UnfollowBullying campaign is an invitation for all stakeholders to take a stand against cyberbullying.  Parents are a key component in the fight against cyberbullying.  Parents can help by talking to their students.  The following five tips for parents are courtesy of Common Sense Media. 

Teach your kids empathy.Nothing drives home a point faster than walking a mile in someone else’s shoes. If your kids truly understand what someone else is going through, they’re less likely to bully someone — or passively witness others being bullied.

Help kids understand the line between funny and cruel.Kids’ online communication is often purposely ambiguous or accidentally cruel — both of which can lead to misunderstandings. If drama starts brewing, ask your kid to call or speak face to face with their friend to clear it up.

Make sure they talk to someone (even if it’s not you).As kids enter the middle school years, their circle of friends and trusted adults widens. Kids need a responsible adult to confide in — their school counselor, their music teacher, even the parent of a friend.Talk to your kid about who they can go to if trouble is brewing.

Help your kid be an upstander — not a bystander. Kids are hesitant to get involved, in case the bully turns their sights on them. But there are ways to allow your kid to work behind the scenes to reach out to the victim, get an adult involved, and prevent more cruel behavior.

Show your kid how to stop cyberbullying.Tell kids not to respond or retaliate. Not feeding the bully can stop the cycle. And — if anything does happen — save the evidence.

#UnfollowBullying is just one component of EGUSD’s efforts to combat bullying and promote digital citizenship for our students.  These efforts include on-going workshops for teachers, administrators, and parents and this year’s implementation of Digital Citizenship curriculum at all grade levels.

 

The district’s Digital Citizenship Task Force recognizes the need to promote and support the #UnfollowBullying campaign beyond the kick-off week. We have therefore developed the #UnfollowBullying website at http://blogs.egusd.net/ub/. The website includes tools for students and staff to create a successful campaign and to showcase examples from individual school sites.  

There are also parent-specific resources at http://blogs.egusd.net/ub/toolkit/parent/. With students leading the charge, and staff and parents supporting their efforts, the #UnfollowBullying campaign can make a difference.

EGUSD Participates in National Speak Up Survey

The Elk Grove Unified School District is seeking input from students, staff and parents about technology use and education through the national “Speak Up” survey administered by Project Tomorrow, a non-profit education organization.

 

EGUSD stakeholders are asked to take the survey online at http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2012/  and select whether you fall under the category of parents, students or teachers & administrators.   The website asks for the user to enter the state and name of the school.  Survey takers will then need to enter the “secret word” elkgrove to access the survey.

 

Individual responses are anonymous. They are associated with a school but are not tied to the individual. The survey is open now and will close on December 14, 2012.

 

The survey results will inform EGUSD about how participants feel about their education and the use of technology.  Survey results may be used for planning and community discussion.  Project Tomorrow releases national findings through a variety of venues including:   Congressional Briefing in Washington, DC, national and regional conferences, e-mail distribution, Project Tomorrow website, and through Speak Up partners.  According to Project Tomorrow, local, state and national stakeholders report using Speak Up data to inform their new programs and policies.

 

Sample questions on the surveys can be found online at http://www.tomorrow.org/speakup/pdfs/Sample_Survey_Jul%202010.pdf.

 

The survey and subsequent results are free of charge to both the people taking the survey and EGUSD.
