Segerstrom earns a Silver Medal! Click the headline for more details.
Greetings to the entire Segerstrom High School Community,
What happened to September? As you can see we are quickly moving through the school year and looking forward to a successful school year with all the challenges it brings. It seems like the greatest challenge is change. Our school and SAUSD are going through an extraordinary period of transition, helping all of our kids to be academically competitive as we prepare students for their next journey in life. Change does not come without some growing pains but as we move through this together and understand the future benefit to our students, it will be clear the advantages outweigh the working sacrifices. Technology is leading this great change, talk to your students about the building of technology at our school and how it has impacted their classroom. It is transforming our school and our lives and staying ahead of it is a monumental task. As the state prepares a new round of standard based testing, it will exclusively be taken on some type of computer device, which is why we want to experience this now instead of waiting for the inevitable.
Segerstrom is preparing for the second WASC accreditation in school history. This is an important process and our teachers and students have been working on our self-study document for over 8 months. We can always use more parent support and encourage you to contact our office to sign up to volunteer on various committees, teams, and other opportunities to help your student and school. The accreditation visit is March 22-25, 2015; please contact the school office to help during this important event.
During October our activities and athletic programs are in full stride. Homecoming football game is October 24 and the traditional dance is on the 25th in our gym, from 6:00-10pm. It should be lots of fun for all students 9-12. On October 15, all 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT test. This test is an important measurement preparing our students for college. Results are shared with teachers to determine the direction of school goals and student needs. Please encourage your student to do well and support their success.From the moment our students begin their day, it is critical they receive the proper rest, nutrition, and parental support to get their day started in the right direction and are properly prepared. Please keep helping your students be successful by following their grade progress, monitor homework, and celebrating their success. Continue to have a great year JAGUARS, I am looking forward to making this year of change one of the best in school history.
