Attendance Matters

On Time. All Day. Every Day

 

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

 

We are now three weeks into the school year, and your students are now acquainted with their classes and teachers. The first grading period ends on September 22.  Improving student attendance is a district wide goal.  School attendance is a necessary part of the learning process and the means to graduation with a good education. Students who are frequently absent may put their academic learning in jeopardy.

 

As a necessary intervention students who have missed 10% or more of the school days will be invited to an Attendance Review Meeting.  For example, if it's the 50th day of school and your students has missed 5 or more days of school including excused or unexcused, you will receive a letter in the mail and phone call inviting you to attend this intervention. If the student's attendance does not improve your student may be referred to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB); please find the attached link for more information. ESUHSD Truancy/ SARB

 

Being on time to school and having excellent attendance is crucial to student success in school.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the attendance office at 408-347-6522 or 408-347-6513.

Associate Principal

Student Drop-off and Pick-up:  To ensure the safety of all students, it is requested that parents and guardians use the student parking lot on Eagles Lane or the curbside area in front of the school on Blossom Hill Road when dropping off or picking up students; please refrain from double parking or dropping off/picking up students in red (no parking) zones to avoid a citation.  The campus is very busy in the morning and afternoon with cars coming and going.  As such, please plan ahead so that your child has plenty of time to make it to his or her first class.

Before saying goodbye for the summer, I want to take a moment to thank everyone for another amazing school year. Once again, our graduating class has made me proud - from their university acceptances to their constant display of citizenship in the community and around campus. I wish them all the best as they transition into the next phase of their lives.  I also look forward to continuing our work with returning students as they prepare to make the 2017-18 school year their best yet.

 

I would like to thank our parents; without your help and support this year would not have been as successful as it was. Your partnership with Oak Grove makes this an incredible place for your child to learn and grow.  In addition, your involvement enhances your child’s high school experiences and helps create memories that will last a lifetime.  I especially want to thank our Parent Community Organization for organizing an incredible Staff Appreciation Breakfast on Thursday, May 4th.  

 

Finally, I am thrilled to announce that we received a six year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The team of teacher leaders and administrators from throughout California who served on our school’s WASC committee commended us on our instructional coaching, Parent Center and outreach efforts, counseling department, Student Support Center, afterschool ASSETs program and the many educational options available to our students.

 

I wish you all a safe and relaxing summer and I look forward to seeing you in August!

ATTENTION SENIORS & PARENTS!

Did you know that are changes to FAFSA this year?  FAFSA is an on-line application that college bound seniors will need fill out for financial assistance with college such as grants, loans, work study, and scholarships. 

Starting with the 2017­–18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), the following changes have been put in place: 

  • Students are now able to submit a FAFSA® earlier.  Students have been able to file a 2017–18 FAFSA since Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date is a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as Oct. 1 every year. (There is NO CHANGE to the 2016–17 schedule. The FAFSA became available Jan. 1 as in previous years.)
  • Students now report earlier income information. Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students are required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) must report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.  

For more information on the FAFSA, please mark your calendar to attend Oak Grove's Financial Aid Information Night on Tuesday, Oct. 25th from 6 to 7 p.m. in Room X-1 ( English presentation ) or Room U101 ( Spanish presentation). 

 

Our Cash For College Hands-on workshop is on Tuesday, Nov 1st from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Room E-6.Financial aid counselors will be available to help you fill out the application. Bring your 2015 tax information.  You can also get a head start by visiting www.fafsa.ed.gov to fill out the FAFSA online.

Top Scholarships for High School Seniors

 

Aside from grants and loans, private scholarships are some of the best ways to help fund your college education. There are thousands of scholarships out there for high school seniors, all with different eligibility requirements, deadlines, and award amounts, so it would be worth your time to do your own research.

Senior year is prime crunch time when it comes to your college scholarship search. If you’re just starting the search process and need a little help getting off on the right foot, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve compiled a list of some of the best college scholarships for high school seniors based on availability and award amounts. These scholarships are generally flexible (you’ll be able to use them at any accredited college you choose to attend), and don’t have any geographical restrictions (so you’re eligible to apply no matter where you live in the US).

The list is broken down into lists of scholarship competitions, merit-based scholarships, need-based scholarships, and specialty awards

 

 

Scholarship Competitions

 

Create-a-Greeting Card Scholarship Contest (Gallery Collection Scholarship)

 

Your design ends up here; you get money for college ... it doesn't get better than that! 

 

This scholarship is pretty unique, and is great for students with some untapped artistic talents! Students compete for this award by submitting a photo, piece of artwork, or computer graphic for the front of a greeting card. The winner receives $10,000, and the winner's school receives an award of $1,000. 

  • The competition is open to high school, college, and university students.
  • The submission deadline is March 2, 2017.

Scholarships Based on Academic Strength

 

To win these scholarships, you have to show that you're tough - or, at least, that your brain is tough. 

 

The following scholarships are generally awarded based on your academic performance in conjunction with a few other factors (often leaderships skills and commitment to community service). The most competitive applicants will be dedicated, high-achieving students who also show that they're invested in their communities.

Coca-Cola Scholars are judged on their academic performance, extracurricular activities, leadership experience, and community service.

If your family income isn't enough to cover college expenses, need-based scholarships might be great options for you. 

 

The following scholarships take financial need into account when choosing award recipients. For many of these programs, though, financial need is just one of many criteria considered - strong applicants will also need to be strong students, or leaders, or community activists.

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS

Tips here, get your tips here!

 

If you're going to go through all the work of submitting a scholarship application, you want to make sure you have the best chances possible of winning awards. The following tips will help you submit the greatest number of successful scholarship applications possible. 

 

Do Your Own Research

As you've probably noticed, many of the above scholarships are fairly generous, national awards that will likely be very competitive. You could be a very strong applicant for any number of scholarships and still not win one of these big national awards. So what's a student to do? 

The reality is that there are countless scholarship programs out there that might be really good fits for your interests, location, background, identity, etc. The more niche a scholarship program, the better chances you'll have of winning an award (if you're a qualified applicant, that is). So do your own research on scholarships programs that operate in your area, or are offered to students with your particular interests or passions. The Ronald McDonald House Charities scholarships are a good place to start. You can also pay a visit to your guidance counselor, who should have more information on local scholarships. You could also branch out on your own, and Google scholarships in your area. If you have a particular talent, skill, interest, or identity, search for scholarships that are offered to students based on those criteria. 

 

Apply Broadly

Applying for scholarships (like applying to colleges), is in part a numbers game. You wouldn't apply to just one school if you wanted to optimize your chances of getting into a great college, would you? Many scholarship applications ask similar questions and require similar information, so if you apply to one program, you may as well apply to a bunch. It's free to apply for most scholarships, so all it takes from you is a few hours of your time. 

Finally, take advantage of applications that submit you for consideration for many scholarship awards, like the Horatio Algier Scholarship application mentioned above. 

 

Make Note of Deadlines

Scholarship applications are all over the place - there's no defined "scholarship season" for submission deadlines, but many are due before you would submit college applications. As such, it's better to start your scholarship search earlier rather than later, so you don't miss out on any great opportunities. The summer before your senior year is a good time to start making note of programs you're interested in. Keep track of application deadlines by keeping a spreadsheet that you update regularly. This is especially helpful if applications require you to ask for letters of recommendation - you can make sure to give teachers and mentors plenty of advance notice to write you a letter.

If you want to get a head start on scoping out scholarships, you should check out our comprehensive guides to winning some of the most competitive national scholarships available. Learn more about the Coca-Cola Scholarship, the Gates Millenium Scholarship, the Walmart Scholarships, and the McDonald's Scholarships.

Attention Juniors!

 

Are you planning to attend a four year university after graduation? If yes, sign up for the PSAT test @ Oak Grove to help you prepare for the SAT. Please register and pay for the PSAT at the school bank during break, lunch, and after school. Cash or check ( payable to Oak Grove High) will be accepted.

 

Cost:  $20

           $5  ( If you qualify for free/reduced lunch)

 

Almost all students take the PSAT during their junior year, but many students take the PSAT when they are sophomores to get the feel of the test. (Note: the district will pay for all sophomores to take the PSAT. Sophomores will not need to register or pay for the PSAT ). However, it is only the scores from the PSAT taken in your junior year that are considered for the National Merit Scholarship competition.

This scholarship competition awards approximately 8,200 scholarships annually. The selection process starts with the choosing of National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalists and Commended Scholars. Cutoffs vary from state to state but typically Semi-Finalists score in the top one percent of students in their state and Commended Scholars between the top one to four percent. Most of the approximately 16,000 Semi-Finalists become Finalists, and half of those ultimately receive National Merit Scholarships.
