iTunes Phishing Scam Alert Please be on alert for a new scam that appears to be a Principal request for parents to purchase iTunes gift cards and send the codes in.  The previous scam looked similar with the scam letter from PTA Presidents.  We do not use iTunes gift cards in the district and will not ask for this ever.  Unfortunately the scam emails are going directly from the fake account to parents and we can not control it.

CLUB FAIR FRIDAY 9/21 at lunch in Amphitheater.  Mustangs! This Friday come to the amphitheater during lunch to visit with the Clubs.  There are 89 to choose from and we hope you will find some area of interest to participate. You can join more than one club and we have clubs that range from BSU to Dude be nice! There is something for everyone at the club fair and you’ll have a great time learning what we offer at Monte Vista!

How to Raise an Adult....Written by a past Dean of Students at Stanford University, How to Raise an Adult “draws on research, on conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and on her own insights as a mother and as a student dean to highlight the ways in which overparenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large. While empathizing with the parental hopes and, especially, fears that lead to overhelping, Lythcott-Haims offers practical alternative strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success.” How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success by Julie Lythcott-Haims

Ever wish there was a how-to guide on parenting students? How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success by Julie Lythcott-Haims

 

Written by a past Dean of Students at Stanford University, How to Raise an Adult “draws on research, on conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and on her own insights as a mother and as a student dean to highlight the ways in which overparenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large. While empathizing with the parental hopes and, especially, fears that lead to overhelping, Lythcott-Haims offers practical alternative strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success.”

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

On Wednesday, October 10th Monte Vista High School, along with all other SRVUSD high schools will administer the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) to all sophomores and juniors. 

 

You do not need to do anything to register your sophomore or junior for this test, however since there are costs associated with administering the PSAT/NMSQT, we are accepting donations of $25 for each student taking the test. You may donate by following this link:

 

In order to accommodate students as they take this test, we will be on special bell schedules on both Wednesday, October 10th and Thursday, October 11th.

The PSAT/NMSQT takes approximately three hours and consists of Reading, Writing and Language and Math Tests.  It is designed to prepare all students to take standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT and will also provide each student with valuable information on their academic progress so they can identify areas of improvement and tailor their subsequent coursework appropriately.  Benefits of the exam also include the following:

  • Students who take the PSAT/NMSQT have historically scored higher on the SAT than those who don’t take the test.
  • Students who take the exam in 11th grade may be eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program, an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. Other scholarship organizations also use the PSAT/NMSQT to find students qualified to apply for their programs.
  • Students and parents will receive detailed PSAT/NMSQT score reports.  The data can be used for instructional planning and to improve college and career readiness.

 

Students in grades 10 and 11 will receive a preparation guide in their English classes in the next week. For students in grades 9 and 12, school will not begin on Wednesday, October 10th until 12:05 pm.

 

Please reach out to our College & Career Counselor, Cathy Haberl or our Assistant Principal, Liz Pagano should you have any questions.

Completed packets are due on Thursday, September 6th in the main office. We look forward to getting our many clubs started for the school year!

 

Do you know the most interesting Mustang?  Please brag about your friends, family, and other fellow Mustangs who might otherwise fly under the radar. Does your bestie sky-dive on the weekend? Is your older brother a member of the Extreme Knitting Club? Maybe the person who sits next to you in Bio traveled to every single continent and are pen pals with royalty (or an emperor penguin)! We all know that the coolest people are the most modest, so take this opportunity to tell us about how incredible the people in your life at school truly are.

 

You must be logged into your SRVUSD.net account in order to respond to this form. Your email address is connected with each nomination you submit. Staff are welcome to submit as well. Please submit as many nominations as you would like. The link can be found in your Schoolloop news feed sidebar.  -Jennie Drummond, 925.552.2846, Monte Vista High School, Art Teacher

DRIVE SAFE TIPS:  We know that coming and going from Monte Vista during drop off and pick up is very busy. We all have places that we need to be. I’d like to ask that everyone slow down and be sure to be aware of your surroundings when coming and going from the school. We not only have our own MV students trying to get to/from the parking lots on to the campus safely, but we also have much younger students going to/from Los Cerros and even Green Valley using our crosswalks and streets. Please be on the lookout and make sure to stop for any pedestrians in crosswalks and on sidewalks before entering and exiting the parking lots.

 

Attention all Fall athletes.  Your applications for participation in APE are due on Friday September 7th.  Please turn the completed forms in to Ms. Nino in the counseling office.

 

ATTENTION FRESHMAN PARENTS**  If you are pulling your student out for any reason you must call the partial day attendance line for your part of the alphabet. We will write a pass for your student to leave which they are to pick up in the attendance office BEFORE going to class. That pass is shown to their teacher so they can be released when needed. Students then must sign out in the attendance office on their way out.

 

IMPORTANT**  If you pull your student out of PE, they are not allowed to go back to the locker room to change and retrieve their items and will have to leave in their PE uniform.

PTSA President Report for August 2018

PTSA IS GROWING AT MONTE VISTA:  This year PTSA has record breaking Membership numbers due to new Future Fund Website for Registration. Up to 1100 memberships now- last year was 640. When I started at Monte Vista  we had about 100. So happy!  Join the Stampede- it is not too late.  The Future Fund link is still active for you. 

 

PTSA SUPPORTS STUDENTS:  The PTSA collected enough donations to 100% fund both the afterschool Tutoring Center and the Testing Center.  Both of these programs are important to PTSA as it answers our mission statement to advocate for kids in need.

 

PTSA SUPPORTS PARENTS:  We pre-sold a record amount of school directories.

 

PTSA HAS SWAG:  And my favorite, we sold almost ALL of our 500 school logo magnets that were my pet project!

 

PTSA supports the Monte Vista Community:   PTSA provides a yummy Back to School Staff Luncheon each year that is much appreciated and helps us support our Staff as they work hard to get ready for our kids. In addition, we held the first Freshman Parent's Coffee during orientation, which was well received by parents new to Monte Vista.  Last night we had a Q&A table set up for parents at Back to School Night. 

 

We have a full Board and will have our first meeting on September 7th.

Janet Nunan, PTSA President

Parents who live outside the boundaries of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District now have the opportunity to seek interdistrict transfers to enroll their children at SRVUSD schools. SRVUSD has streamlined the enrollment request process for eligible families who reside in other Bay Area communities, reducing the stress of finding a high-performing new school. 

 

First, a family must obtain an interdistrict transfer approval document from its home school district. Second, if the student is in middle school or high school, SRVUSD will need to review transcripts, discipline records and attendance records from the previous school.

 

Transfer requests are approved based on space availability and a review of transcripts, discipline and attendance records.

 

In some cases, a family’s home school district will send the documentation to SRVUSD when a parent makes the transfer request. In a few other cases, the family will have to handle the paperwork.

 

Families interested in transferring their children to SRVUSD should check with their home school districts to begin the process.

 

SRVUSD is one of California’s top performing school districts. More than 98 percent of its students graduate from high school, and 95 percent of those grads plan to attend college, with 71 percent attending a four-year university. Student attendance rate is 97 percent at SRVUSD.

 

Academic success is a tradition at SRVUSD schools – a tradition well known to university admissions officers. In college placement exams, SRVUSD students rank exceptionally high, with 88 percent scoring 21 or higher on the ACT and 83 percent scoring 1,500 or better on the SAT.  Almost 40 percent of SRVUSD students enroll in Advanced Placement classes, and 88 percent earn at least a Grade 3 on AP exams.

 

The SRVUSD experience doesn’t stop at college preparedness. The district offers more than 450 sections of performing arts classes. And younger children are exposed to fun ways to learn, with a science lab and science classroom specialist available at SRVUSD elementary schools.

 

SRVUSD is built for success in the 21st century, with 100 percent of its classrooms and other learning spaces updated with wireless connectivity. The district has more than 6,400 Apple laptops for students, along with more than 3,000 PCs and over 2,000 Chromebooks. SRVUSD students also have access to more than 5,600 iPads and Android tablets.

 

SRVUSD has approximately 32,000 students in 36 schools, taught and cared for by 3,500 dedicated employees.

 

For questions about how families can apply for interdistrict transfers to enroll their children with SRVUSD, please visit http://www.srvusd.net/interdistricttransfers

or contact Student Services at (925) 552-5076.

Tuesday night student representatives from SRVUSD’s four comprehensive high school Associated Student Bodies (ASB) and Gender Sexuality Alliances (GSA) came to the school board meeting to request that our Board of Education re-designate one multi-stall restroom at each high school campus to an all gender restroom as a pilot. Our Board approved implementation of this pilot which will begin on Tuesday, May 29, 2018. At Monte Vista, we will reassign the 400 Wing restrooms as our all-gender restroom.  

 

The all gender restroom pilot will last for one full semester and will be evaluated at the end of the Fall 2018 semester. We will report our evaluation of the pilot to the Board in January 2019. The implementation plan includes increased supervision for all high school restrooms to ensure safety for all students utilizing the re-designated restrooms.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Thanks.

Principal, Monte Vista High School

The flags at Monte Vista are at half mast today in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day.  President John F. Kennedy declared the first Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15, 1962, as a tribute to peace officers and in honor of peace officers who, through their courageous deeds, lost their lives or became disabled in the line of duty. This day has been observed in our country annually ever since.

 

On this day, and every day, it is fitting to honor those peace officers who gave their lives to protect ours, and to thank the law enforcement officers who serve for their dedication and service to our communities.

 

In accordance with Flag Code section 7(m), the United States flag is to be displayed at half-staff for the entire day in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day, Tuesday, May 15, 2018. By a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676), and by Public Law 103-322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136-137), the President has been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as "Peace Officers Memorial Day" and the week in which it falls as "Police Week."

Will this impact your student?   More class sections in our master schedule means less students in each class and a better learning environment for all.  Principal Ahern and the Academic Boosters direct your donations to pay for class sections that meet the specific needs of MVHS students. A class section costs $23,000 for one class taught during one period for one year. 

 

Why is there a May 20th deadline for an August school year?  MV hires teachers for the 2018-19 school year based on the donations received by May 20, 2018.  The district requires a funding commitment for the additional sections.

 

What is the donation?  $395- Tax Deductible and about $1 per day.  Parents continued support is critical for Monte Vista to continue to offer a strong well rounded education for our kids.    
 

How do I donate?  Online CLICK HERE  or by check mailed to MVAB, 3131 Stone Valley Road, Danville, CA 94526  Academic Boosters is a 501(c)3 Organization - Tax ID 68-0260241
