Estamos buscando padres para participar en el Consejo Directivo Escolar y comité consejero escolar del programa estatal para alumnos aprendiendo inglés

Estimada Familia de James Lick:

Nuestra escuela James Lick está organizando elecciones para los comités escolares. Éstos se tienen que establecer antes del 26 de septiembre de 2018. Le invitamos a que se nomine a usted mismo u otra persona para los siguientes comités:

  • School Site Council (SSC) – El Concilio Escolar (Comité para el mejoramiento de programas escolares)
  • English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC) – El comité para estudiantes del idioma inglés como segundo idioma

 

El Concilio Escolar (School Site Council-SSC) se tiene que establecer en todas las escuelas públicas de San Francisco. Los miembros representan a los padres, los estudiantes, los miembros de la comunidad y la escuela en cuanto a la gobernación de la escuela. El SSC tiene la responsabilidad de desarrollar el Plan Académico y el presupuesto general de la escuela incluyendo los fondos de categorías específicas. El SSC debe:

  • Revisar el plan estratégico del distrito escolar: Más allá de las palabras.
  • Revisar y analizar datos y otra información sobre los logros de los estudiantes.
  • Solicitar las opiniones de la comunidad escolar y desarrollar una evaluación de las necesidades escolares.
  • Asistir al director/a en el desarrollo del BSC/SPSA y el presupuesto escolar.
  • Comprobar continuamente la implementación del BSC/SPSA y evaluar su efectividad.
  • Aprobar el BSC/SPSA y el presupuesto escolar antes de que se mande a la oficina central.

Adjunto a este mensaje está el formulario de nominación para los padres que estén interesados en participar en el SSC y / o ELAC

 

El propósito del comité consejero ELAC-English Learners Advisory Committee es el de aconsejar al director/a y personal de la escuela acerca de los programas y servicios para alumnos aprendices del inglés. Las tareas son similares a los del SSC (arriba) y además incluyen: vigilar el censo anual de lenguaje y aconsejar a los padres sobre maneras de comunicarse y la importancia de la asistencia diaria de sus hijos/as a la escuela.

Se necesitan los concilios y comités escolares para apoyar a todos los programas. Se le invita a ser candidato para la membrecía en el concilio y/o en cualquier otro o todos los comités que usted escoja. La escuela y el distrito tienen la responsabilidad de proveerle con la información y el entrenamiento que necesita para ser un miembro efectivo. Generalmente, los comités se reúnen una vez al mes por unas dos horas. Cada miembro se elige por uno o dos años. Los padres de familia podrán observar y opinar si en verdad hay un ambiente educativo positivo y si sus hijos comprenden las tareas que se les asignan. El compromiso y la participación de las familias son importantes para nuestras escuelas. Si tiene alguna pregunta, haga el favor de llamar al director Tim Reidy o Osvaldo Ortiz, el Enlace de Familia al 415- 695-5675

We are looking for parents to be involved in School Site Council and English Learner Advisory Committee

Dear James Lick Families:

James Lick Middle School is holding elections for school committees, which must be completed before September 26, 2018. We invite you to nominate yourself or others for the following:

 

  • School Site Council (SSC)
  • English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC)  

 

A School Site Council (SSC) must be established at all San Francisco Unified School District public schools. The elected members represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in school governance. The SSC is responsible for the development of the Academic Plan, and overall school site budget including any categorical funds. The SSC is expected to:

 

  • Review the SFUSD Strategic Plan: Beyond the Talk.
  • Review and analyze student data.
  • Solicit community input and develop a needs assessment.
  • Assist the principal in developing the BSC/SPSA and school site budget.
  • Monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the BSC/SPSA on an ongoing basis.
  • Approve the Academic Plan and school site budget before it is submitted to the District for final review and approval.

Attached to this message is the nomination form for parents that are interested in being involved in the SSC.

 

The purpose of the English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC) is to advise the principal, SSC and school staff on programs and services for English Learners. The tasks are similar to the SSC’s (stated above) and also include: the annual language census and ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.

The school council and committees are needed to support all school programs. You are invited to become a candidate for membership on the council and/or any or all of the committees of your choice. The school & district are responsible for providing you with the information and training you need to be an effective member.

 

Generally, the groups meet once a month for two hours. Each member is elected for either a one or two-year term. Family members often offer insights into how effective our school is in creating a positive learning environment and how well their children understand their assignments. Perspectives and parent participation/involvement are important to our school. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Principal Tim Reidy or Osvaldo Ortiz, the Family Liaison at 415- 695-5675

JLMS Family Survey: Please complete!/Encuesta Familiar de la Escuela Intermedia James Lick

Dear Families-

 

Every spring the school district asks students, families and faculty to take part in a Culture and Climate Survey as part of the district’s accountability system to families.

 

The family Culture-Climate survey is one important way to help us understand how families feel about our school and their child’s learning, and how our school can improve. It is very important that we get as many of our families to respond as possible so that we have data that truly represents all family’s experiences and not just a few. Everyone’s voice is important! There are no right or wrong answers to any of these questions. We just want to know everyone’s honest opinion.

 

Please be aware that:

 

  • The survey will not be used in staff or teacher evaluations.
  • This survey will be anonymous. We will track how many families have completed the survey, but we will not know what any individual says on any question.
  • Parents with multiple children in this school should fill out one survey for each child. If you have children in another school, you should fill out a survey at that school as well. 

 

The survey is available online and is translated into Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Tagalog, and

Arabic. Here is the link to our school-specific survey: http://bit.ly/2EkOW9M and we are asking families to fill out the online surveys from the February 12th through April 27th.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Queridas familias,

Cada primavera, el distrito escolar les pide a los estudiantes, a las familias y la facultad que participen en una Encuesta de Cultura y Clima como parte del sistema de rendición de cuentas del distrito a las familias.

La encuesta familiar sobre cultura y clima es una forma importante de ayudarnos a comprender cómo se sienten las familias con respecto a nuestra escuela y el aprendizaje de sus hijos, y cómo puede mejorar nuestra escuela. Es muy importante que hagamos que la mayor cantidad posible de nuestras familias responda para que tengamos datos que representen verdaderamente todas las experiencias de la familia y no solo algunas. ¡La voz de todos es importante! No hay respuestas correctas o incorrectas a ninguna de estas preguntas. Solo queremos saber la opinión honesta de todos.

Tenga en cuenta que:
La encuesta no se usará en las evaluaciones de personal o maestros.
Esta encuesta será anónima. Realizaremos un seguimiento de cuántas familias han completado la encuesta, pero no sabremos lo que dice ninguna persona sobre ninguna pregunta.
Los padres con varios hijos en esta escuela deben completar una encuesta para cada niño. Si tiene hijos en otra escuela, también debe completar una encuesta en esa escuela.

La encuesta está disponible en línea y está traducida al español, chino, vietnamita, tagalo y árabe. Aquí está el enlace a nuestra encuesta específica de la escuela: http://bit.ly/2EkOW9M y les pedimos a las familias que completen las encuestas en línea desde el 12 de febrero hasta el 27 de abril.

8th Grade Spanish World Language Testing (Non-Immersion Students) / Examen de Lenguaje Mundial en Español para 8vo Grado (para estudiantes que no estan en programa imersion)

Español debajo...

 

8th Grade World Language Placement Assessment

A requirement for high school graduation includes 20 credits of World Language, which equals two years or four semesters of study. Three years of world language study are recommended by most 4-year colleges (UC/CSU). If your child already speaks and can read some Spanish, he or she will have the opportunity to take a placement test this winter (test administration window 1/29/2018 to 2/2/2018.) The results of this assessment determines the correct placement into a high school world language class. Taking advanced language classes is a great way to help your child get into college and to earn the Seal of Biliteracy award on his or her high school diploma. As well, your child may be able to earn college credit in high school for taking an AP course or an advanced world language class at CCSF.  Please contact your child’s 8th grade counselor for more information.


_____________________________
 

Examen de nivel para la lengua española para la secundaria

Uno de los requisitos para poder graduarse de la escuela secundaria es acumular 20 créditos de algún idioma mundial, lo que equivale a dos años o cuatro semestres de estudio. La mayoría de las universidades de 4 años (UC / CSU) recomiendan que los candidatos tengan tres años de estudio en un idioma mundial. Si su hijo(a) habla y puede leer a un nivel básico en español, él/ella podría tomar un examen de ubicación durante el invierno (la fecha para tomar el examen es del 29/1/2018 al 2/2/2018). Los resultados de este examen determinarían la ubicación adecuada de su hijo(a) para este tipo de clases. Tomar clases avanzadas de idiomas es una gran oportunidad para que su hijo(a) pueda ingresar a la universidad y obtener el premio “Sello de lectoescritura bilingüe” en su diploma de escuela secundaria. Asimismo, su hijo(a) podría obtener créditos universitarios al tomar un curso AP (ubicación avanzada) en la escuela secundaria o una clase avanzada de idiomas en CCSF. Comuníquese con el consejero de octavo grado de su hijo(a) para mayor información.

JLMS Advanced Band Noe Valley Farmers Market Performance Reschedule - November 4th

Greetings JLMS Community:

 

The Noe Valley Farmers Market has provided the JLMS Advanced Band with a new performance opportunity on Saturday, November 4th. This date has been provided as a postponement of October 14th, which was cancelled due to poor air quality. 

 

Drum and bass line students will need to report to the band room at 10:20am, so they can set up the back-line equipment before the act that goes on before the JLMS Band. Wind players will need to report to the band room at 11:30am, and then the entire group will proceed to the venue. 

 

The stage is within the NVFM lot at 3861 24th street. The band will perform toward the back of the lot under the newly remodeled gazebo. 

 

Parent volunteers will be needed to help with the event, so if you are interested please let me know. 

 

Best Regards,

Mr. Reilly

Air quality updates

SFUSD continues to monitor the air quality index for the City and County of San Francisco for the week of Oct. 16. Principals are getting regular updates regarding precautions they should take, including bringing activities indoors when the air quality is orange or red and monitoring students with asthma and other health conditions. As the forecast changes during the school day or at any time during this week, an update will be provided to principals right away. Check the current the air quality index at airnow.gov.

 

三藩市聯合校區將繼續監測本週三藩市內的空氣品質指數。各校校長會定期獲得有關相應預防措施的最新消息,包括當空氣品質達橙色或紅色級別時,把所有活動安排在室內進行,以及監察患哮喘及其他健康狀況學生的情況。若空氣品質預測在上學日期間或本週任何時間出現變化,我們會立即向所有校長提供更新資訊。你可上網到airnow.gov查閱最新的空氣品質指數。

 

El SFUSD continúa monitorizando el índice de calidad del aire para la Ciudad y el Condado de San Francisco durante la semana del 16 de octubre. Los directores reciben actualizaciones periódicas con respecto a las precauciones que deben tomar, incluso realizar las actividades dentro de las instalaciones cuando la calidad del aire es naranja o roja y vigilar los estudiantes con asma y otras condiciones de salud. Conforme el pronóstico cambie durante el día escolar o en cualquier momento durante esta semana, de inmediato se proporcionarán actualizaciones a los directores. Verifique el índice actual de calidad del aire en airnow.gov.

Schools open on Friday, Oct. 13

San Francisco Unified School District officials are working closely with the Department of Emergency Management and the Department of Public Health to monitor the air quality situation in San Francisco. At this time, we continue to advise schools to conduct indoor activities during the school day. Schools will be open Friday, Oct. 13. If San Francisco's air quality is downgraded further, we will consult with Department of Public Health and provide families and staff with an update.

 

三藩市聯合校區正在與緊急事故應變管理部和公共衛生部密切合作,監測三藩市的空氣質量。目前,我們繼續建議學校在上課期間進行室內活動。 學校將在10月13日星期五正常開放。 如果三藩市的空氣質量進一步下降,我們將向公共衛生部諮詢,並對家庭和員工提供新指引。

 

Los funcionarios del Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Francisco están trabajando estrechamente con el Departamento de Manejo de Emergencias y el Departamento de Salud Pública para vigilar la calidad del aire en San Francisco. En este momento, seguimos recomendando a las escuelas que realicen las actividades dentro del plantel durante el día escolar. Las escuelas estarán abiertas el viernes 13 de octubre. Si la calidad del aire de San Francisco disminuye aún más, consultaremos con el Departamento de Salud Pública, con el fin de proporcionar a las familias y al personal una actualización sobre la situación.

San Francisco has very poor air quality due to the fires in the North Bay. SFUSD has advised all school sites ​to keep students indoors on Oct. 12 during recess​, physical education​ and lunc​h​​. All outdoor sports and learning ​activities should ​also ​​​be ​moved indoors.  

 

These guidelines are to remain in place until the San Francisco Department of Public Health deems the air quality has improved and it is safe for children to do activities outdoors. We will continue to update principals regarding any changes. 

 

由於北灣火災,三藩市空氣質素非常差劣。三藩市聯合校區已吩咐所有學校在小息、體育堂及午餐時安排學生留在室內活動。所有戶外運動和學習活動也應轉到室內進行。

 

這指引將一直生效,直至三藩市公共衛生局認為空氣質素已改善,並適合學生在室外安全活動為止。如有任何變化,我們將會繼續通知校長。

 

En estos momentos la ciudad de San Francisco tiene muy mala calidad del aire debido a los incendios en el norte de la Bahía de San Francisco. El Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Francisco (SFUSD) ha aconsejado a todas las escuelas que mantengan a los alumnos en el interior de sus inmuebles el 12 de octubre durante el recreo, la clase de educación física y el almuerzo. Todos los deportes y actividades docentes al aire libre deben también realizarse en el interior de las escuelas.

 

Estas directrices deberán respetarse hasta que el Departamento de Salud Pública de San Francisco considere que la calidad del aire ha mejorado y es seguro para los alumnos realizar actividades al aire libre. El SFUSD continuará informando a los directores de las escuelas sobre cualquier cambio de última hora.

Air quality alert

Beginning at approximately 2:00 p.m. on Oct. 11, the air quality in San Francisco is expected to become "unhealthy for sensitive groups" (known as a code orange). At that time, schools have been advised to minimize outdoor exertion for students and staff with asthma or other health issues. Alternative activities and settings will be made available for all students at all of our schools.

 

各位三藩市聯合校區家長:從今天下午2點開始,預計三藩市的空氣質量會升級為橙色警告,即“對敏感人群有健康危害”。 學校已經收到建議盡量減少哮喘或有其他健康問題的學生和工作人員的戶外運動,並提供其它活動給所有學生。

 

Se espera que hoy alrededor de las 2:00 de la tarde, la calidad del aire en San Francisco no sea saludable “en especial para los grupos de personas más sensibles” (conocido como código naranja). Al llegar ese tiempo, a las escuelas se les ha recomendado que “a estudiantes y personal con padecimientos de asma o de salud” se les limite la salida al exterior. Para todos nuestros estudiantes de las escuelas se tendrán disponibles medidas y actividades alternativas.

Support for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Renewals

To date, nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrant youth have been granted DACA status, which provides work authorization and temporary relief from deportation. The program has enabled our graduates to contribute to their communities by significantly increasing opportunities for higher education and jobs. Unfortunately, on September 5, 2017, President Trump directed the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to phase out and eventually end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) over two and half years. USCIS will continue to accept and process RENEWAL applications until Oct. 5, 2017 from applicants whose DACA expires between Sept. 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018. Below are resources in support of DACA students who are eligible for renewal:

Apoyo para los trámites de renovación de la Acción Diferida para Personas que Llegaron al País en la Infancia (DACA)

Hasta la fecha, casi 800.000 jóvenes inmigrantes sin documentos legales de inmigración han obtenido la categoría DACA, lo que les proporciona una autorización de trabajo y pospone temporalmente su deportación. El programa ha permitido que nuestros graduados contribuyan a sus comunidades al aumentar significativamente las oportunidades para que ellos obtengan una educación superior y empleo. Infortunadamente, el día 5 de septiembre de 2017, el presidente Trump ordenó al Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS) y a los Servicios de Ciudadanía e Inmigración de los EE.UU. (USCIS) que gradualmente eliminen y eventualmente pongan fin a la Acción Diferida para Llegadas de Niñez (DACA) durante un lapso de dos años y medio.​ La oficina del USCIS continuará aceptando y procesando solicitudes de RENOVACIÓN hasta el 05 de octubre del 2017 de los estudiantes cuya DACA vence entre el 05 de septiembre del 2017 y el 05 de marzo del 2018. A continuación, presentamos una lista de organismos que ofrecen recursos de apoyo a los estudiantes DACA que califican para renovar su condición:

Change in uniform policy

This year students will have the option of wearing the school uniform of black pants and white shirt or follow the SFUSD district uniform policy:

 

Dress/Appearance Standards Students shall dress appropriately for daily attendance at school. Students who attend schools which have a uniform policy are expected to be in uniform every day. If special circumstances in adhering to this policy should arise, please contact the individual school’s principal for assistance. The type and style of clothing (except for schools with uniforms) and hairdo are individual and personal. The school shall be concerned only when these are extreme and could cause school distraction or disruption or be unsafe. Examples of inappropriate clothing include: • garments where the torso is exposed, i.e., tube tops, half shirts, halters. • clothing or buttons which show obscene words or pictures, or sexually suggestive statement. • clothing related to juvenile gang-related activities. • garments where the entire thigh is exposed, such as micro minis or short shorts. • bathing suits or cut-offs. • the wearing and carrying of tobacco promotional items, or the wearing and carrying of items promoting controlled substances (illegal drugs) and/or alcohol, • sagging pants (where undergarment is exposed). Schools may set their own policies relating to hats, caps and other head coverings, provided that any permitted head coverings may not be obscene or promote illegal activity. There shall be no restriction on student head coverings worn for religious purpose; and students shall be permitted to wear head coverings in the schools’ outdoor spaces, as required by state law.

Changing fee structure to after school programs

Dear SFUSD Families:

 

In SFUSD, most school-based after school and summer learning programs are co-sponsored by SFUSD (the ExCEL program) and partnering community based organizations. The majority are funded through city, state and federal grants. These grants are often awarded in three to five long cycles and are not guaranteed to be renewed once a grant cycle has ended. Unfortunately, the district has recently learned that it lost $3.3 million in competitive federal grants to support our after school program services to families. Please note, this is not related to federal funding cuts to after school programs but rather due to not being awarded the competitive 21st Century Learning grant.

 

We understand how important after school and summer learning is and we are committed to preserving after school and summer program services. In order to ensure that services continue, we will be moving more SFUSD funds into subsidizing these services and also implementing a district wide co-payment fee structure for ALL ExCEL elementary/K-8  and middle after school programs. Some programs already have a fee structure in place. The co-payment fee structure will go into effect for school year 2017-2018. In anticipation of the need for a more sustainable funding model, the Board of Education approved the implementation of a co-payment fee structure in 2014 with its resolution titled After School for All.

 

Each school’s ExCEL after school programs will share more specifics but in general, here are the fee structure guidelines all programs will follow:

 

The monthly co-payment fee will be waived for a child who is: 1) eligible for free or reduced  lunch except those fees required by a local, state or federal tuition subsidy program; 2) homeless or; 3)  in foster care.

 

All other children will pay a co-payment fee on a sliding scal​​e from $50-$500/month based on income.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

各位三藩市聯合校區家長:

 

在三藩市聯合校區,大多數校課後計劃和暑期學習計劃均由校區(ExCEL計劃)和社區夥伴機構聯合贊助。主要撥款乃來自市府、州和聯邦資助。這些資助通常以三至五個週期批出,但卻沒有保證每項資助在週期結束後能自動更新。很不幸,三藩市聯合校區最近得知,由於競爭劇烈,約有330萬用作支持我們課後計劃的聯邦撥款將被削去。請留意,這削減並非因聯邦減少對課後計劃撥款資助,而是因為我們未能獲得「21世紀學習補助金」這筆多人競逐的款項。

 

我們明白課後和暑期學習計劃的重要性,因此會致力保存我們現有的課後和暑期計劃服務。為確保服務繼續,我們會把更多校區資金投入和補貼這些服務,並在校區所有小學/幼 稚園-8年級學校及初中的ExCEL課後計劃中,實施共同付費方法。現時已有部分課後計劃 實施付費模式。有關共同付費方案將於2017-2018學年正式生效。為了將來的資助模式更 具持續性,教育委員會於2014年通過了題為“全民共享課後計劃”的議案,落實了共同支付的費用模式。

 

每間學校的ExCEL課後計劃收費均有其具體細節,但總的來說,它們將按照以下模式指引收費:

 

以下學生可豁免每月共同付費:1)符合校餐減免費用計劃學生,除非個別本地、州或聯邦之學費津貼計劃要求支付有關費用; 2)無家可歸學生; 3)寄養學生。

 

其餘所有學生一律按收入能力付費,每月由$50-$500不等。

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Estimadas Familias del SFUSD:

 

En el SFUSD, la mayoría de los programas escolares de aprendizaje después de clases y durante el verano son copatrocinados por el SFUSD (el programa ExCEL) y las organizaciones comunitarias. La mayoría se financia a través de subvenciones municipales, estatales y federales. Estas subvenciones a menudo se otorgan con una duración de tres a cinco ciclos largos y su renovación no se puede garantizar una vez que el ciclo de la subvención ha terminado. Infortunadamente, el distrito escolar recientemente descubrió que perdió 3.3 millones de dólares en subvenciones federales competitivas para apoyar nuestros servicios de programas después de clases, para las familias. Tenga en cuenta que esto no está relacionado con los recortes de fondos federales a programas después de clases, sino más bien debido a que no se le ha otorgado la subvención competitiva para el Aprendizaje del Siglo XXI.

 

Comprendemos lo importante que es el aprendizaje después de clases y durante el verano, y estamos comprometidos a preservar los servicios del programa después de clases y el de verano. Con el fin de asegurar que los servicios continúen, transferiremos más fondos del SFUSD para subsidiar estos servicios, y también implementaremos una estructura de copago con base en los ingresos, para todo el distrito escolar y todos los programas después de clases de ExCEL en primaria/K-8 y en la escuela intermedia. Algunos programas ya tienen en marcha una estructura de cuotas. La estructura de cuotas de copago entrará en vigor el año escolar 2017-2018. Advirtiendo la necesidad de un modelo de financiamiento más sostenible, en 2014 la Junta de Educación aprobó la implementación de una estructura para el copago de cuotas con su resolución titulada “programas después de clases para todos” (After School for All).

 

Los programas ExCEL después de clases en cada escuela compartirán más detalles, pero las directrices generales de la estructura de cuotas que todos los programas seguirán son:

 

La cuota de copago mensual no será aplicable para un estudiante que: 1) sea elegible para el comidas gratis o a precio reducido; excepto las cuotas requeridas por un programa de subsidio de cuotas local, estatal o federal; 2) sea indigente o esté sin hogar o; 3) esté bajo tutela temporal.

Todos los demás estudiantes pagarán una cuota de copago de una escala variable de $ 50 hasta  $ 500 mensuales con base en el ingreso.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Mahal na mga Pamilya ng SFUSD:

 

Sa SFUSD, itinataguyod ang karamihan sa mga nakabase sa paaralan na mga programang after school (ginagawa matapos ang regular na klase) at pag-aaral sa tag-araw o summer learning ng SFUSD (ang programang ExCEL) at ng mga katuwang na organisasyong nakabase sa komunidad. Pinopondohan ang karamihan sa mga ito ng mga grant o ibinibigay na pera ng lungsod, estado, o gobyernong pederal. Kadalasan, ibinibigay ang mga grant na ito sa loob ng mga siklo o takdang panahon na tatlo o limang taon, at walang garantiya na maibibigay ulit pagkatapos ng siklo. Sa kasamaang palad, napag-alaman kamakailan ng distrito na nawala na ang $3.3 milyon na pinagkokompetensiyahang pederal na grant, na sumusuporta sa mga serbisyo ng programang after school sa mga pamilya. Pakitala po na hindi ito kaugnay ng mga pagbabawas sa pondong pederal sa mga prograng after school, kundi dahil sa hindi pagkakapanalo sa pinagkokompetensiyahang grant na Pagkatuto sa Ika-21 Siglo (21st Century Learning).

 

Naiintindihan namin kung gaano kahalaga ang after school at ang pag-aaral sa tag-araw, at may pananagutan kaming panatilihin ang mga serbisyo para sa after school at programang pantag-araw. Para matiyak na magpapatuloy ang mga serbisyong ito, maglilipat kami ng mas maraming pondo ng SFUSD tungo sa pagbibigay ng subsidyo sa mga serbisyong ito, at magpapatupad rin kami ng co-payment fee structure (sistema ng paghahati sa bayad sa pagitan ng distrito at mga pamilya, depende sa kita) sa kabuuan ng distrito para sa LAHAT NG ExCEL na programang after school sa elementarya/K-8 at middle school. May ilang programa kung saan ipinatutupad na ang sistema ng paghahati sa bayad. Ipatutupad ang co-payment (kabahagi sa bayad) na sistemang ito sa akademikong taon 2017-2018. Dahil inaasahan na ang pangangailangan para sa pagkakaroon ng sapat na pondo, inaprubahan na ng Lupon ng Edukasyon (Board of Education) ang pagpapatupad ng sistema ng co-payment noong 2014 sa pamamagitan ng resolusyon nito na pinamagatang After School for All (Pag-aaral Matapos ang Regular na Klase na Para sa Lahat).

 

Ibabahagi ang mas maraming detalye sa inyo ng bawat ExCEL na programang after school na nasa kani-kaniyang eskuwelahan, pero sa pangkalahatan, heto ang mga gabay sa paghahati ng bayad na susundin ng lahat ng programa:

 

Hindi pababayaran ang buwanang singil na co-payment para sa batang: 1) kuwalipikado para sa libre o murang tanghalian, maliban na lamang sa mga singil na itinatakda ng lokal, pang-estado, o pederal na programa sa subsidyo sa matrikula; 2) homeless (walang tirahan) o; 3) nasa foster care o pangangalaga ng estado.

 

Magbabayad ang lahat ng iba pang bata ng singil na co-payment sa nag-iiba-ibang halaga at mula sa $50 hanggang $500/kada buwan batay sa kita.

Kính gởi Gia đình SFUSD:

 

Tại SFUSD, hầu hết các chương trình sau giờ học và học hè tại trường được đồng tài trợ bởi SFUSD (chương trình ExCEL) và các tổ chức dựa trên cộng đồng thành viên. Phần lớn chương trình được hỗ trợ ngân sách thông qua các nguồn quỹ thành phố, tiểu bang và liên bang. Các nguồn quỹ thường được cung cấp trong ba cho tới năm chu kỳ dài và không được bảo đảm sẽ được tái cung cấp khi chu kỳ ngân quỹ chấm dứt. Không may mắn, học khu vừa biết được rằng bị mất $3.3 triệu đô la trong các khoảng trợ vấp liên bang liên quan để hỗ trợ các chương trình dịch vụ sau giờ học cho các gia đình. Xin vui lòng chú ý, điều này không liên quan tới việc cắt giảm ngân quỹ liên bang cho các chương trình sau giờ học nhưng do không được trao học bổng cạnh tranh 21st Century Learning.

 

Chúng tôi hiểu tầm quan trọng việc học hè và sau giờ học và chúng tôi cam kết gìn giữ các dịch vụ chương trình học hè và sau giờ học. Để đảm bảo việc tiếp tục các dịch vụ, chúng tôi sẽ chuyển nhiều nguồn quỹ SFUSD hơn vào việc trợ cấp các dịch vụ này và cũng thực hiện cấu trúc đồng thanh toán chi phí cho chương trình sau giờ học cấp trung học cơ sở và tiểu học/K-8 ALL ExCEL. Vài chương trình cũng có sẵn cấu trúc chi phí. Cấu trúc đồng chi trả chi phí cho năm học 2017-2018. Nhằm dự đoán nhu cầu về mô hình tài trợ bền vững hơn, Hội đồng Giáo dục chấp thuận việc thực hiện cấu trúc đồng chi trả chi phí trong 2014 với giải pháp của nó có tên là  After School for All.

 

Mỗi chương trình sau giờ học ExCEL sẽ chia sẻ nhiều chi tiết hơn nhưng tổng quát, hướng dẫn cấu trúc chi phí cho tất cả các chương trình như sau:

 

Chi phí đồng chi trả hằng tháng sẽ được miễn trừ cho một trẻ em: 1) đủ tiêu chuẩn cho bữa ăn trưa giảm giá hay miễn phí ngoại trừ các lệ phí bắt buộc cho chương trình trợ cấp học phí địa phương, tiểu bang hoặc liên bang; 2) người vô gia cư hoặc; 3) trong chăm sóc nuôi dưỡng.

 

Tất cả các trẻ em khác sẽ trả chi phí đồng chi trả theo thang điểm từ $50-$500/tháng dựa theo thu nhập.

اعزائي اهالي مقاطعة مدارس سان فرانسيسكو الموحدة:

 

في مقاطعة مدارس سان فرانسيسكو الموحدة، اغلب برامج بعد المدرسة الواقعة بالمدارس وبرامج التعلم بالصيف تتم برعاية مشتركة بواسطة مقاطعة مدارس سان فرانسيسكو الموحدة (برنامج اكسيل) والمنظمات المجتمعية.  الاغلب يتم تمويلها بواسطة مجلس المدينة، الولاية والمنح الاتحادية.  هذه الهبات تمنح عادة في ثلاث الى خمس دورات طويلة وغير مضمون تجديدها في حال انتهاء دورة المنحة. للأسف، علمت المقاطعة قريبا بأنها خسرت 3.3 $ مليون دولار من المنح الفيدرالية التنافسية لدعم خدمات برامج تعليم بعد المدرسة للأهالي. يرجى ملاحظة ان هذا لايمت بصلة الى الاقتطاعات التمويلية الفيدرالية لبرامج بعد المدرسة لكن عوضا عن ذلك بسبب عدم الحصول على منحة القرن الـ 21 التنافسية.

 

نفهم اهمية برامج تعلم بعد المدرسة والصيف ونحن ملتزمون بالمحافظة على خدمات برامج بعد المدرسة والصيف. ولضمان استمرارية الخدمات، سوف نحرك تمويل اكثر من المقاطعة الى دعم هذه الخدمات وايضا تطبيق هيكلية رسوم دفع مشتركة على مستوى المقاطعة لجميع برامج اكسيل الابتدائية/ الحضانة – 8  والمتوسطة.  لدى بعض البرامج بنية رسوم جاهزة. سوف يبداء تنفيذ الرسوم المشتركة للعام الدراسي 2017 – 2018.  تحسبا للحاجة الى نموذج تكويل افضل، اقر مجلس التعليم تطبيق بنية رسوم دفع مشتركة في 2014 مع قراره بعنوان بعد المدرسة للجميع.

 

كل برنامج اكسل لبعد المدرسة سوف شارك بالمزيد من التفاصيل لكن بالعموم، اليكم المبادئ التوجيهية للرسوم التي ستتبعها جميع البرامج:

 

سوف يتم اعفاء الرسوم المشتركة للطفل الذي: 1) مؤهل للغداء المجاني او المخفض ماعدى تلك الرسوم المطلوبة بواسطة البرامج المحلية، الولاية او مساعدة الفيدرالية للرسوم،  2) المشرد او، 3) لبيوت رعاية الشباب.

 

جميع الاطفال الاخرين سوف يدفعون رسوم مشاركة بمقياس متدرج من 50$ - 500$ / شهريا حسب الدخل

  • Shoes should be comfortable enough to wear for a minimum of three hours. If they are new shoes, you should wear them to rehearsal and at home to practice walking in them. You may also want to scuff the bottoms so that the shoes are not too slick.

  • Hair should be worn so that the caps will fit over the hairstyle.

  • Bobby pins can be used to attach the cap to your head.

  • The gown should be hung out the night before or lightly steamed to eliminate wrinkles.

  • Clothing recommendations:

    • Boys should wear a collared shirt and tie.

    • Girls should wear age-appropriate dress clothing. Dresses or blouses with puffy sleeves or ruffles do not look good under the gowns.

Reminders for Students

  • You should come with makeup and hair DONE to the ceremony.

  • Students should be at Everett by 4:30 pm.  We will meet in the cafeteria.  There will be signs to help you find your way.

  • If you bring yearbooks, phones, etc. - leave them with your parents during the ceremony.

Reminders for Families at the Ceremony

  • There will be mandatory promotion rehearsals during 6th through 8th Periods at school on Wednesday (5/17), Thursday (5/18) and Monday(5/22). Caps and gowns and tickets will be handed out Monday at rehearsal.

  • All attendees of the ceremony will require a ticket.  This includes children. Each graduate will receive 4 tickets on Monday during promotion rehearsal.  If you don’t need all 4 tickets, please share with friends who need them.

  • If you would like to request up to 4 additional tickets, please write a short letter to Mr. Quesada by Friday, May 5/19, to be considered.

  • Doors open at 4:30 pm for ceremony attendees. Before the door open, please form a line. Once you enter the auditorium, you may not save seats.  The ceremony begins at 5:00 pm.

  • Please inform the school ahead of time if you require wheelchair/disabled access.

  • We would like to invite everyone to the courtyard for refreshments after the ceremony.

  • Caps and gowns should be returned after the ceremony, look for signs.

6th Grade May 1st Field Trip CHANGE URGENT

SCROLL DOWN FOR SPANISH

 

April 28, 2017

Dear Students, Families and JLMS Faculty and Staff:

 

After a great deal of deep thought, we have come to the conclusion that the wisest move is to cancel the upcoming field trip on May 1st to the dance theatre performance and Asian Art Museum.  There are too many obstacles and there are safety issues, and we have decided it is best to cancel.

 

As fortune would have it, we have been offered a major grant from the production team over at the Curran Theater Organization and our field trip is now rescheduled for Wednesday, May 3rd to see THE ENCOUNTER.  This will only affect 6th graders, but we wanted everyone to know.

 

Complicite’s THE ENCOUNTER is “one of the most immersive theater pieces ever created” (New York Times.) Directed and performed by Simon McBurney, this solo performance traces a journey into the depths of the Amazon rainforest, using 3D audio technology to build an intimate and shifting world of sound.

 

Inspired by the book Amazon Beaming by Petru Popescu, THE ENCOUNTER follows National Geographic photographer Loren McIntyre as he finds himself lost in a remote area of Brazil in 1969, which leads to a startling encounter that is to change his life. Each seat comes equipped with a pair of headphones. Put them on and experience ground-breaking sound design - plugging into the power of the imagination, and engaging you in new and breathtaking ways as McBurney leads you on an epic journey.

 

I want to thank the 6th grade team for helping us support the arts at James Lick and this golden opportunity to use "San Francisco as the campus.”

 

There is no need to sign a new field trip form.  If you initially did not turn in a form because of May 1st protest, you may still submit a form until Tuesday May 2nd if you decide to join us.

 

If you would like to chaperone this trip, please contact Mr. C at the email below.

 

Respectfully,

 

 

 

Keith Carames

Theatre Arts, JLMS

 

 

28 de abril de 2017

Estimados Estudiantes, Familias y JLMS Facultad y Personal:

 

Después de una reflexión profunda, hemos llegado a la conclusión de que lo más prudente es cancelar el próximo viaje de campo el 1 de mayo a la representación teatral y al Museo de Arte Asiático. Hay demasiados obstáculos y hay problemas de seguridad, y hemos decidido que es mejor cancelar.

 

Como la fortuna lo tiene, nos han ofrecido una subvención importante del equipo de producción en la Organización de Teatro Curran y nuestro viaje de campo es ahora reprogramado para el miércoles 3 de mayo para ver EL ENCUENTRO. Esto solo afectará a los estudiantes de 6to grado, pero queríamos que todos lo supieran.

 

Dirigida e interpretada por Simon McBurney, esta actuación en solitario traza un viaje a las profundidades de la selva amazónica, utilizando la tecnología de audio 3D para construir un ambiente íntimo Y cambiante mundo del sonido.

 

Inspirado en el libro Amazon Beaming por Petru Popescu, THE ENCOUNTER sigue al fotógrafo de National Geographic, Loren McIntyre, que se encuentra perdido en una zona remota de Brasil en 1969, lo que lleva a un sorprendente encuentro que cambiará su vida. Cada asiento viene equipado con un par de auriculares. Póngalas y experimente el diseño de sonido innovador, conectándolo al poder de la imaginación y atrayéndolo de maneras nuevas e impresionantes, ya que McBurney lo lleva a un viaje épico.

 

Quiero agradecer al equipo de 6to grado por ayudarnos a apoyar las bellas artes en James Lick y esta oportunidad de oro para usar "San Francisco como el campus".

 

No es necesario firmar un nuevo formulario de viaje de campo. Si inicialmente no se entregó en un formulario debido a la protesta del 1 de mayo, puede enviar un formulario hasta el martes 2 de mayo si decide unirse a nosotros.

 

Si desea acompañar este viaje, póngase en contacto con el Sr. C en el correo electrónico a continuación.

 

Respetuosamente,

(Current) 7th Grader Summer Math Academic Youth Development / Desarrollo Juvenil de Verano Académico de Matematicas

What is Summer-Start AYD?

It’s an exciting program that will help you get the skills you need for success in Mathematics. If selected to participate, you will take part in a program encompassing a four-week summer class. You will:

·      Learn to use mathematical clues in forensics science and crime scene investigations.

·      Increase your math skills with new online tools that you can use at school and at home.

·      Learn about what it takes to be a successful learner, even when assignments are hard or you are taking challenging courses.

·      Learn mathematics that will give you a jump start next year.

·      Become part of a learning community that can support you throughout next year.

 

Dates: June 5 - June 30, 2017
 

Locations:

Everett - 9am to 12pm

Denman - 9am to 12pm

APG - 8am to 11am

MLK - 9:30am to 12:30pm

 

Who can participate?

Any student entering eighth grade who can commit to attending the summer class can apply. Pick up an application from your math teacher or counselor (or see the attached application).

 

Frequently asked questions

·      Why would I give up four weeks of my summer?

This program gives you the opportunity to get to learn skills that can become keys to your success in 8th grade—and beyond.

·      Is this a remedial class?

This class is the opposite of remedial. In this class, you will work with classmates to solve challenging and interesting problems and get a jump start on eighth grade. It is an honor to be selected to participate.

·      What if I don’t really like math?

That’s OK. Our most successful students started out feeling the same. Many students who don’t like math have reported that they liked AYD because the activities didn’t feel like the math they were used to and taught problem solving strategies that apply to many other subjects. Also, you will usually work in pairs or groups. Learning to work as part of a team can lead to success!

·      Is this just a math class?

Though you will spend some time each day involved in mathematical problem solving, this is not a typical math class. In fact, some students report that it doesn’t feel like a math class at all. Instead, this is a class that helps you learn a wide variety of skills that you can use in any class.

 

________________________________________________________

 
¿Qué es Summer-Start AYD?
Es un programa emocionante que le ayudará a obtener las habilidades que necesita para tener éxito en Matemáticas. Si está seleccionado para participar, participará en un programa que abarca una clase de verano de cuatro semanas. 
 
Vas a:
• Aprender a usar pistas matemáticas en la ciencia forense y las investigaciones de la escena del crimen.
• Aumente sus habilidades matemáticas con las nuevas herramientas en línea que puede usar en la escuela y en casa.
• Aprender sobre lo que se necesita para ser un estudiante exitoso, incluso cuando las tareas son difíciles o está tomando cursos difíciles.
• Aprenda matemáticas que le darán un comienzo de salto el próximo año.
• Hazte parte de una comunidad de aprendizaje que te puede apoyar durante el próximo año.
 
¿Quiénes pueden participar?
Cualquier estudiante que ingrese al octavo grado que pueda comprometerse a asistir a la clase de verano puede solicitar. Recoja una solicitud de su profesor de matemáticas o consejero (o ver la aplicación adjunta).
 
Preguntas frecuentes
• ¿Por qué daría cuatro semanas de mi verano?
Este programa le da la oportunidad de aprender habilidades que pueden convertirse en claves para su éxito en el 8vo grado y más allá.
 
• ¿Es esto una clase de recuperación?
Esta clase es lo opuesto a remediar. En esta clase, usted trabajará con compañeros de clase para resolver problemas desafiantes e interesantes y conseguir un comienzo de salto en octavo grado. Es un honor ser seleccionado para participar.
 
• ¿Qué pasa si realmente no me gustan las matemáticas?
Está bien. Nuestros estudiantes más exitosos comenzaron a sentir lo mismo. Muchos estudiantes que no les gusta las matemáticas han informado que les gustaba AYD porque las actividades no se sentían como las matemáticas que estaban acostumbrados y enseñó estrategias de resolución de problemas que se aplican a muchos otros temas. Además, normalmente trabajará en parejas o grupos. Aprender a trabajar como parte de un equipo puede llevar al éxito!
 
• ¿Es sólo una clase de matemáticas?
Aunque pasará algún tiempo cada día involucrado en la resolución de problemas matemáticos, esto no es una clase típica de matemáticas. De hecho, algunos estudiantes reportan que no se siente como una clase de matemáticas en absoluto. En su lugar, esta es una clase que le ayuda a aprender una amplia variedad de habilidades que puede utilizar en cualquier clase.

CAASPP Testing / La Evaluación de California de Rendimiento y Progreso Estudiantil (CAASPP)

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is the statewide assessment system used by California public schools. The CAASPP program is intended to provide informationused to monitor student progress and help them succeed, ensuring that all students leave high school ready for college and career.

 

CAASPP computer-based tests are based on California Common Core State Standards for English language arts/literacy and mathematics. These assessments include the Smarter Balanced computer adaptive tests in English language arts/literacy and mathematics and the California Alternate Assessment for some students with disabilities.

 

SFUSD students in grades 3-8 and 11 began participating in CAASPP testing beginning in March 2017 The students of James Lick Middle School will be taking these assessments in late April and early to mid May. In addition, SFUSD students in grades 5, 8, and 10 will take the California Science Test (CAST), a new computer-based science assessment based on Next Generation Science Standards; James Lick eighth grade students will take this test mid April.

Following the spring 2017 testing, students receive individual score reports. Student score reports will be mailed to parents in the beginning of school year 2017-18. The detailed reports include an overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for English language arts and mathematics, science (if a participating grade) and other information. If you would like more information, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/.

American? Angel Island Immigrant Stories

So close, yet so far away.  From 1910 to 1940, many Angel Island Immigration Station immigrants experienced these feelings upon reaching America, but were detained from entering San Francisco.  On May 7, 2017 (12:00-3:00), the San Francisco Public Library Main Library will celebrate Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month by spotlighting personal immigrant stories from those who went through Angel Island.


Look forward to educational games and craft activities for all ages, a display of Angel Island family histories, books, news articles, and photos. The first 50 children ages 12 and under will receive a goody bag.

 

Co-sponsors: the Asian American Studies Department at San Francisco State University, TACT (The Association of Chinese Teachers), the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, and the Square and Circle Club.

IMPORTANT! PTSA elections coming up April 12th

Dear James Lick Community,

 

The MOST IMPORTANT PTSA meeting of this year is coming up on Wednesday, April 12th at 6:00 pm.  This will be the meeting where we need to elect a new PTSA President and Treasurer for the 2017-18 school year.  If no one steps up to fill these legally required roles, the JLMS PTSA will immediately lose non-profit and PTA status.  If there is no PTSA at James Lick in the future our students lose out on so many important opportunities. LET’S NOT LET THIS HAPPEN! 

 

Please consider taking on one of these roles and becoming more active in the JLMS PTSA as your act of resistance and to support our wonderful school during these uncertain times.  We have a strong PTSA Board of current and new parents, and a Vice President (Julie Jackson) and Secretary (Paula Murphy) that have committed for next year.

 

I’ve attached Nomination forms in English and Spanish to this email.  Please, please, please consider taking on one of these important roles and talking to your other JLMS parent friends about it, as well.  Nomination forms are due by Tuesday, April 11th in the PTSA Mailbox or Safe in the School Office.

 

Thank you for your support, and hope to see you on April 12th for the PTSA Election! Please contact Osvaldo Ortiz, Parent Liason, at 415-695-5675 or by email: ortizo@sfusd.edu with any questions.

¡Importante! La Reunión del PTSA el miércoles 12 de abril

Saludos a la Comunidad de James Lick,

La reunión más importante de PTSA de este año se acerca el miércoles 12 de abril a las 6:00 pm. Esta será la reunión donde necesitamos elegir un nuevo Presidente y Tesorero de la PTSA para el año escolar 2017-18. Si nadie sube para llenar estos papeles legalmente requeridos, el PTSA de JLMS perderá inmediatamente el estado sin fines de lucro y PTA. Si no hay PTSA en James Lick en el futuro nuestros estudiantes pierden en tantas oportunidades importantes.
¡ASEGÚRESE QUE ESTO NO PASE!

 

Por favor considere asumir uno de estos roles y ser más activo en el PTSA de JLMS como su acto de resistencia y apoyar nuestra maravillosa escuela durante estos tiempos inciertos. Tenemos una Junta de PTSA fuerte de padres actuales y nuevos, y una Vicepresidenta (Julie Jackson) y Secretaria (Paula Murphy) que se han comprometido para el próximo año.

 

He adjuntado formularios de nominación en inglés y español a este correo electrónico. Por favor, por favor, considere asumir uno de estos papeles importantes y hablar con sus otros amigos de padres de JLMS sobre ello, también. Los formularios de nominación deben presentarse el martes, 11 de abril en el buzón PTSA o en la oficina de Safe in the School.

 

¡Gracias por su apoyo, y esperamos verlo el 12 de abril para la Elección PTSA! Please contact Osvaldo Ortiz, Enlace de familias, Al 415-695-5675 o por correo electrónico: ortizo@sfusd.edu con cualquier pregunta.

Abril 7: Dominando El Miedo: Manténgase Informado: Conozca sus derechos en James Lick
Esto es de lo que estamos:
Plantamos las semillas que un día crecerán.
Regamos las semillas ya plantadas, sabiendo que tienen promesa futura.
Colocamos las bases que necesitan un mayor desarrollo.
Proveemos la levadura que produce efectos más allá de nuestras capacidades.
No podemos hacer todo
Y hay una sensación de liberación al darse cuenta de eso.
Esto nos permite hacer algo,
Y hacerlo muy bien.
- Oscar Romero - Arzobispo de San Salvador

This is an update for families who submitted applications by January 13, 2017 for an SFUSD school assignment. As you know SFUSD school assignment letters, which were scheduled to be mailed out by March 17, have been delayed. The delay is due to unforeseen staffing emergencies.

Brand New Musical: an original created project at James Lick Middle School

Come one, come all to a brand new musical theatre creation at James Lick Middle School - Just in Case ~ Tales of an Immigrant Life which plays March 9, 10 and 11th at 1220 Noe Street in San Francisco.

 

This is an original musical revue created by Keith Carames, Jenna Monroe (Artistic Director of San Francisco's Requisite Dance Company) and Jorell Chavez (Music teacher at Burton High School) in collaboration with the students of James Lick Middle School.
 
The entire musical will center around three different family units, each of whom has a relationship with America.  
 
There is a Latino family who have been planning to come to America forever and suddenly decide, after hearing of the American election and the war in Syria, that traveling is a bad idea and that America is not what they thought it would be, so they decide to not move.  
 
There is a Jewish family whose grandparents came through Ellis Island many years ago who are celebrating a wedding anniversary with their family, recounting what it was like to travel to America and how America has given them the life they had always dreamed of for themselves and their children and grandchildren.  
 
And finally, there is a Syrian family who had no intention of moving, who now – as a result of constant warfare – have become refugees seeking asylum in America but they are not allowed to enter the country.
 
As the show progresses, many students will have an opportunity to “break the fourth wall” and address the audience, not as their character but rather as themselves, telling the audience the story of their own family’s immigration to America.
 
The show will feature songs from musicals in the American Musical Theatre Repertoire.
 
We hope to see you there.

SFUSD's gender-based discrimination policies

The San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) has a policy in place that explicitly prohibits gender-based discrimination, a protection that extends to everyone, including transgender and gender expansive students.

We are proud that we were the first school district in the country to pass a policy extending safeguards to our transgender student body. We will continue to honor those policies and ensure that transgender and gender nonconforming students in the SFUSD will remain protected from discrimination, bullying and harassment.

Students, know that in California public schools, you have the right to be...

  • Free from bullying, harassment and discrimination
  • Respected when you dress and express yourself in ways that do not conform to gender stereotypes, with respect to the student dress codes
  • Affirmed by adults when you declare your pronoun and name that fits your gender identity
  • Involved in school activities, access spaces such as locker rooms and restrooms, that fits your gender identity

Announcing Synergy Gradebook for All

We are excited to share that the district is transitioning from School Loop to Synergy’s Gradebook Family and Student Portals in August 2017. This transition to Synergy will provide SFUSD’s students, families, teachers, and district staff with a unified system for real-time information on classes, grades, assignments, and more. While we know change can be challenging, we firmly believe the transition to Synergy Gradebook will increase efficiency for teachers and improve access for our students and families.

 

What does this mean for students and families?
Starting in August 2017, students and families will log in to Synergy’s Family and Student Portals to access student information related to attendance, assignments and grading. Our transition to Synergy is a response to feedback we have heard from school communities about the need to streamline the number of online systems we use for school-family communications.  Our team will be reaching out to families via parent groups and advisory councils, email, School Messenger, school websites, and School Loop to inform them of the change and provide opportunities to learn more and prepare for the transition in August 2017.  

 

Why are we making this change?

  • One login for attendance and grades for teachers and district staff
  • One login per family, regardless of the number of children and which school they attend
  • Greater clarification and standardization of SFUSD grading practices and policies
  • Increased security and confidentiality of student and parent information
  • Actionable real-time student performance information
  • Improved accessibility for individuals with disabilities
  • Improved translation options

What will happen with School Loop?
School Loop will continue to be used for school websites next year. However, teachers, students and families will use Synergy instead of School Loop for other communications and  information about grades and assignments.

 

We are confident that Synergy Gradebook is another exciting step to leverage technology to increase engagement in our school communities, enhance data integrity and security, and better position us for 21st century learning, as outlined in Vision 2025 and our Digital District Plan.  

 

To learn more, check out the exciting G4A Launch Video, go to the Gradebook for All website (www.sfusd.edu/gradebook), or download the attached flier.

March 18th: Talking with Kids about Race in 2017 with Micia Mosely
03/18/2017 03:00 PM - 05:30 PM PT
San Francisco Main Library
Room Number: Koret Auditorium

100 Larkin Street
San Francisco, CA

 

How do we have a conversation about race with our children?


In the wake of the presidential election results, uprisings and protests in Ferguson, NYC, Baltimore, Oakland and South Dakota, many of us are imagining that another world is possible. We know that the potential for a world in which unarmed Black Americans are not killed regularly by police and people of color are not the targets of systemic racism and hate crimes has to start with us. In fact, the most powerful change we can make is on the micro level, with what we teach our children about race and implicit bias. 


This introductory workshop will help us unpack our own understanding of race and outline developmentally supportive language to use with kids.

Addresses will only be used for grant purposes. If you have concerns about entering your information then please call 415-981-1960 to register over the phone.


Parents and caregivers of youth of all ages and racial and ethnic backgrounds welcome.


Join Our Family Coalition, San Francisco Public Library, and San Francisco Unified School District for this very important discussion about race.
Light refreshments will be served.

 

Here is the link to registration for the event: https://www.z2systems.com/np/clients/ourfamily/eventRegistration.jsp;jsessionid=BF5F038CE951B09C16DBD3B975031BDE-n1?event=58816

21 días más para nuestra primavera Musical Just in Case: Cuentos de una vida de inmigrante !!!!!

 Saludos Familias de JLMS,

¡El musical que hemos estado esperando está casi aquí! Just in Case - Cuentos de una vida de inmigrante Una revue musical original creada por y para los estudiantes de la Escuela Intermedia James Lick.

 
                    Lugar: Auditorio de la Escuela James Lick

                           Jueves, 9 de marzo a las 7:00 pm


                         Viernes, 10 de marzo a las 7:00 pm

                         Sábado, 11 de marzo a las 3:00 pm y 7:00 pm

 

Todo el musical se centrará alrededor de tres unidades familiares diferentes, cada una de las cuales tiene una relación con América. Hay una familia latina que ha estado planeando venir a América para siempre y de repente decide, después de escuchar los resultados de las elecciones estadounidenses y la guerra en Siria, que viajar es una mala idea y que América no es lo que pensaban que sería. Hay una familia judía cuyos abuelos vinieron a través de la isla de Ellis hace muchos años que están celebrando un aniversario de boda con su familia, contando lo que era viajar a América y cómo América les ha dado la vida que habían soñado siempre para sí mismos y su Hijos y nietos. Y finalmente, hay una familia siria que no tenía ninguna intención de moverse, que ahora - como resultado de la guerra constante - se han convertido en refugiados que buscan asilo en América, pero no se les permite entrar en el país.

 

A medida que el espectáculo progresa, muchos estudiantes tendrán la oportunidad de "romper la cuarta pared" y dirigirse a la audiencia, no como su carácter, sino como ellos mismos, diciéndole a la audiencia la historia de la inmigración de su propia familia a América.


Las entradas serán una donación sugerida de $ 10 a $ 15 por boleto. (Menores de 18 años son gratuitos)


Para mayor información por favor visite jlms-sfusd-ca.schoolloop.com

21 more days for our spring Musical Just in Case: Tales of an Immigrant Life!!!!!

Greetings JLMS families,

 

The musical that we have been waiting for is almost here! Just in Case – Tales of an Immigrant Life:   An original musical revue created by and for the students of James Lick Middle School.

 

               Location: James Lick Middle School Auditorium

 

                             Thursday, March 9  at 7:00pm

                                   Friday, March 10 at 7:00pm

                               Saturday March 11  at 3:00pm & 7:00pm

 

The entire musical will center around three different family units, each of whom has a relationship with America.  There is a Latino family who has been planning to come to America forever and suddenly decide, after hearing the results of the American election and the war in Syria, that traveling is a bad idea and that America is not what they thought it would be. There is a Jewish family whose grandparents came through Ellis Island many years ago who are celebrating a wedding anniversary with their family, recounting what it was like to travel to America and how America has given them the life they had always dreamed of for themselves and their children and grandchildren.  And finally, there is a Syrian family who had no intention of moving, who now – as a result of constant warfare – have become refugees seeking asylum in America but they are not allowed to enter the country.

          As the show progresses, many students will have an opportunity to “break the fourth wall” and address the audience, not as their character but rather as themselves, telling the audience the story of their own family’s immigration to America.

 

Tickets will be a suggested donation from $10 to $15 per ticket. (Under 18 are free)

Información importante sobre las vacunas para nuestras familias de 6to grado

Estimado Padre / Tutor:

 

En anticipación a la promoción de su estudiante de sexto grado al 7º grado, la ley AB 354 de California requiere que todos los estudiantes que ingresan al 7º grado muestren evidencia de vacunación Tdap antes del primer día del siguiente año escolar.

 

Pedimos a TODOS los estudiantes de 6to grado que tengan sus vacunas actualizadas hasta el 15 de abril de 2017.

 

En la parte superior de la página figuran vacunas adicionales para las que el distrito carece de pruebas. Se sugiere obtener estas vacunas también mientras esté en el consultorio del médico.

 

Si ha presentado el registro de vacunación de su hijo y ha recibido este aviso, significa que NO hay evidencia de vacunación Tdap registrada. Le sugerimos que consulte con el médico de su hijo inmediatamente.

 

A los estudiantes sin prueba de Tdap no se les permitirá estar en la escuela. Por favor proporcione a la escuela un registro de vacunación Tdap inmediatamente para evitar la pérdida de días escolares.


Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con Alex Teekell, Enfermera del Distrito Escolar, o con Osvaldo Ortiz, Enlace Familiar.

Important information on vaccinations for our 6th grade families

Dear Parent/Guardian:

 

In anticipation of your 6th grade student’s promotion to 7th grade, California law AB 354 requires that all incoming 7th graders show evidence of Tdap vaccination before the first day of the next school year.

 

We ask ALL 6th graders to have their vaccinations up to date by April 15, 2017.

 

Listed at the top of the page are additional vaccines that the district is lacking evidence for. It is suggested to obtain these vaccines as well while at the doctor’s office.

 

If you have submitted your child’s vaccination record and have received this notice, it means that there is NOT evidence of Tdap vaccination on record. We suggest that you check with your child’s health care provider immediately.

 

Students without proof of Tdap will not be allowed to be in school. Please provide the school with a record of Tdap vaccination immediately to avoid the loss of school days.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Alex Teekell, School District Nurse, or Osvaldo Ortiz, Family Liaison.

Mensaje sobre la Encuesta de Cultura y Clima para las familias

Buenos días a nuestras familias de JLMS,

 

Quiero compartir esta importante información acerca de una próxima encuesta familiar anual que estaremos realizando.

SFUSD tiene una forma nueva de evaluar la calidad escolar, ¡y sus opiniones serán parte de ese sistema! A partir de 15 de febrero, vamos a pedirles que contesten una breve encuesta sobre la escuela. Esta encuesta es muy importante para ayudarnos a entender cómo podemos mejorar la escuela, así que por favor asegúrese de llenar una encuesta antes de Mayo 13! Queremos escuchar la voz de todas las familias!

 

La encuesta de la familia (llamada anteriormente Encuesta de Satisfacción) forma parte del Índice de Mejoramiento de la Calidad Escolar y es una manera de medir la cultura y ambiente de nuestra escuela.

La encuesta de la familia es parte del nuevo sistema de responsabilidad que nuestro Distrito Escolar tiene ante el el gobierno federal.
La encuesta de la familia es una manera importante de ayudarnos a entender cómo se sienten las familias con respecto a nuestra escuela y el aprendizaje de sus hijos, y de qué manera se puede mejorar nuestra escuela.
Es muy importante que tantas familias como sea posible contesten la encuesta para que tengamos datos que verdaderamente representen a toda la escuela, y no sólo a unas pocas personas. ¡La voz de cada persona es importante!
No hay respuestas correctas o incorrectas para estas preguntas. Sólo queremos saber la verdadera opinión de cada persona.

La encuesta está disponible en el internet, así como la versión en papel, y está traducida al español, chino, vietnamita, tagalo, y árabe. Nosotros le enviaremos el enlace del portal de internet para la encuesta de nuestra escuela en particular.
Le pidimos a las familias que contesten las encuestas entre finales de febrero y mayo.
La encuesta no se utilizará en evaluaciones del personal o de los maestros.
Esta encuesta será anónima. Haremos un seguimiento de quien ha contestado la encuesta, pero no sabremos cómo contestó cada persona individualmente a las preguntas.

 

El 13 de febrero, publicaremos el enlace para la encuesta. Si necesita alguna ayuda con la encuesta, puede ponerse en contacto con el Sr. Ortiz, el Enlace de Familias si tiene alguna pregunta que necesite contestar. También puede llenar la encuesta en línea en el Centro de Recursos Familiares (Sala 151) con el Sr. Ortiz.

Message about the Culture and Climate Survey for families

Good Morning to our JLMS Families,

I want to share this important information about an upcoming annual family survey that we will be conducting.

 

SFUSD has a new way of rating school quality, and your opinions will be a part of that system!  Starting February 13th, we will be asking you to fill out a short survey about the school.  This survey is very important to helping us understand how we can improve the school, so please be sure you fill one out before May 12!  We want to hear every family’s voice!

The family survey (formerly the Satisfaction Survey) is part of the School Quality Improvement Index and is one way we are measuring the Culture and Climate of our school.  
The family survey is part of our District’s new accountability system to the federal government. The family survey is one important way to help us understand how families feel about our school and their child’s learning, and how our school can improve.
It is very important that we get as many of our families to respond as possible so that we have data that truly represents the whole school and not just a few people. Everyone’s voice is important!
There are no right or wrong answers to any of these question.  We just want to know everyone’s honest opinion.

The survey is available online as well as in paper version and is translated into Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Tagalog, and Arabic.  We will send you the website link for our school-specific survey. The survey will not be used in staff or teacher evaluations. This survey will be anonymous.  We will track who has completed the survey, but we will not know what any individual says on any question.

 

On February 13th, we shall post up the link for the survey. If you need any assistance with the survey, You are welcome to contact Mr. Ortiz, the Family Liasion if you have any question that needs answering. You can also fill out the survey online at the Family Resource Center (Room 151) with Mr. Ortiz.

 

Much Respect and Positive Vibes,

Osvaldo Ortiz

Black History Month: Wesley Johnson: The Texas Tornado on Saturday, 2/4 @ 2PM

Wesley Johnson: The Texas Tornado is the topic as Oxford University Press historian John William Templeton leads a Black History Month service at St. Dominick's Catholic Church, 2390 Bush St. on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 2 p.m. 

Prior to the service, Templeton presents a tour of the African-American Freedom Trail at 11 a.m. beginning from the Martin Luther King Waterfall in Yerba Buena Gardens. 

Johnson came to San Francisco at age nine in 1915 for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition and achieved a number of milestones at each stage of his life. Highlights include welcoming the debate team from Wiley College in Texas to San Francisco State Teachers College in 1935 for an interracial debate with S.F. State and U.C-Berkeley. The Wiley debaters were popularized in the Oprah Winfrey-produced film The Great Debaters starring Denzel Washington. Johnson also opened the Flamingo Club and Hotel Texas at 1832-6 Fillmore Street in 1943 for a 25 year run as the heart of the Fillmore nightlife scene. 

The African-American Freedom Trail, as featured on NBC Bay Area and KPIX, is part of a statewide trail which documents the role of African-Americans in 500 years of California history.  More than 400 sites are in San Francisco, including three current churches and two Prince Hall lodges founded in 1852.  

For more details about the tour, contact John William Templeton at 415-240-3537john@zenviba.org or book at californiablackhistory.com

Enrollment update: Lowell High School

As all public school districts in the State of California, including SFUSD, transitioned from STAR testing to the Smarter Balanced Assessments Consortium’s (SBAC) standardized assessments, all 9th grade applicants to Lowell were temporarily required to take the Lowell Admissions Test in the interim years 2015­-16 and 2016­-17.

 

As results from the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium’s (SBAC) standardized tests SFUSD became available, SFUSD planned to use scores from the 7th grade SBAC for SFUSD Lowell applicants for the 2017-­18 school year.

 

However, the district has received feedback from parents that there was not sufficient notice regarding the use of SBAC tests for Lowell admissions. Therefore, the district has determined that all applicants for Lowell for the 2017­-18 school year will again be required to take the Lowell Admissions Test in January. For SFUSD students who have 7th grade SBAC scores, the district will use the highest score from either SBAC or the Lowell Admissions Test in English Language Arts and Math for its admissions’ calculations.

 

In 2017, the test will be administered on January 4, 5, 6, and 9 and students will be assigned by last name. More details are included on the Lowell application.

 

This will be the final year current SFUSD students applying to Lowell will be required to take the Lowell Admissions Test. For the 2018-­19 and all subsequent years, SFUSD will use 7th grade SBAC scores for SFUSD student applicants to Lowell.

 

Applicants for Lowell must submit both a Lowell application and an enrollment application by Friday, December 16, 2016 to either their present SFUSD middle school or to the Educational Placement Center, which is temporarily located at 655 De Haro Street.

Message from the Superintendent

 

We are a community that believes -- fundamentally -- that each child and each person is the equal of every other. 

 

This belief cuts across race, nationality, immigration history, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic means, ability status, language, and age. When we are at our best, we celebrate diversity, embrace our differences, and build on each others' strengths. 

 

We believe strongly in social justice, which means we fight against systemic oppression. We stand up for those who are vulnerable and hope others will do so for us when we need them. We put students' needs first, and we will protect them now. 

 

These core values connect us every day. Let's find ways to move forward together, in unity and in strength.

 

Myong Leigh
Interim Superintendent

On Nov. 8, 2016, San Franciscans will vote on Proposition A, a $744 million general obligation bond that will fund repairs, and maintenance to SFUSD facilities. The bond would allow SFUSD to construct new schools and make seismic upgrades to existing facilities.

Specifically, Proposition A will:

  • Complete seismic safety and modernization projects to make all schools and other district facilities more earthquake safe and energy efficient;
  • Build new schools and classrooms to accommodate a growing student population;
  • Kickstart development of a new SFUSD Arts Center and Ruth Asawa School of the Arts to preserve and promote music and art in curriculum;
  • Invest in technology improvements including installing higher-speed Wi-Fi for all classrooms to enable 21st century learning;
  • Maintain and expand the district’s green schoolyards program to 91 school sites;
  • Explore methods for developing affordable housing for teachers.

SFUSD would create an independent citizens' oversight committee to report to the public about the use of bond funds. The Board of Education would also conduct an annual, independent audit regarding the use of the bond funds.

This posting is meant to be informational rather than persuasive.

Emergency notifications for parents and families

 

 

Dear SFUSD families,

 

Earlier this week gunshots were fired in the school parking lot at dismissal time at June Jordan School for Equity (JJSE), and four students were physically injured. They are recovering. The assailants were not part of the school and appeared to be targeting one student -- there is no ongoing threat to students at JJSE. This isolated event, although awful, should not be viewed as a negative reflection on JJSE, an extremely safe school focused on caring relationships.  

 

This terrible incident has shaken everyone in the community. While students at other schools were not directly impacted, we recognize that an event like this can bring up difficult feelings for you and your child. Please know that school staff is prepared to discuss these feelings with your child and provide additional support as needed.

 

All school staff remain alert to any potential threats to safety in our school district.  The safety and security of the San Francisco Unified School District’s students and staff is of utmost importance. SFUSD has a comprehensive crisis plan, and district administrators coordinate closely with city emergency management officials and law enforcement representatives to monitor and update plans on a regular basis.

 

In addition, schools have security measures to ensure the well-being of students and staff. These include: visitor check-in procedures, locked doors after the start of the school day, surveillance cameras, and school resource officer support.

 

How we notify you if there is a school emergency

If there is an emergency at your child's school or a citywide emergency that impacts your child’s school, SFUSD will notify parents using the contact information in our student information system. Depending on the impact level of the emergency, we will attempt to reach you via a phone call and email using the information in our database, and, if you have opted in to receive text messages, you will receive text notifications as well.

 

If you do not receive a message it is likely because your current contact information has not been entered into the district’s confidential student information system. We encourage you to check with your school site secretary or principal to ensure they have the most up to date contact information for you in SFUSD’s student information system.  This is the how, in the event of a school or citywide emergency, we can reach you immediately.

 

Notifications regarding high-impact emergencies will also be posted on the district’s website sfusd.edu, Twitter account (@SFUnified) and shared with the media.

 

How to sign up for text notifications

If you have a mobile phone entered into our system, you will receive one prompt from SFUSD via SchoolMessenger asking you to opt in to receiving text messages. The message will only be sent one time from the number 67587 and will read: "SFUSD alerts. Reply Y to confirm, HELP for info. Msg&data rates may apply. Msg freq varies. schoolmessenger.com/txt."

 

We encourage you to reply "Y" to receive text messages from SFUSD and your school, as it often makes for faster communication, which is crucial in the event of an emergency. However, if you do not wish to opt in, you can simply ignore the text message.

 

You will only receive this message one time, and if you do not reply "Y" to confirm, the district cannot send you future text notifications. If you already received a text message and didn’t reply but do want to receive urgent messages via text, you may still sign up by texting “YES” to the number 67587 from your mobile phone. Please note, if you text this number and your mobile phone is not entered in the student information system, messages will not be sent to it.

 

More information about SFUSD’s emergency notification procedures can be found here: http://www.sfusd.edu/en/safety-and-emergency-plan/student-safety-and-parent-notification.html

 

Regards,

Myong Leigh

Statement from SFUSD Interim Superintendent Leigh regarding incident at June Jordan School for Equity

All of us in the San Francisco Unified School District are deeply troubled by the incident that took place yesterday afternoon in the parking lot at June Jordan School for Equity (JJSE). Our understanding at this time is that a small group of outsiders unaffiliated with the school came to campus around the time of school dismissal, targeting a particular JJSE student for reasons that are presently unclear. Sadly, four students were injured during the incident. They have received appropriate medical attention and are recovering from their injuries. 

 

We want to thank the San Francisco Police Department for their support immediately following the incident and for their work in the ongoing investigation. We are also grateful to the paramedics and medical professionals who tended to our students, and we are committed to supporting our students and their families as they overcome their physical and emotional wounds. We also appreciate the offers of support immediately made by Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor John Avalos. Finally, we commend JJSE’s leaders, faculty and students both for their steady, calm and caring actions as the situation evolved and for the dedicated and courageous efforts that they have already begun to heal from yesterday’s events.  

 

I need to state emphatically that this isolated event, although awful, should not be viewed as a negative reflection on JJSE. June Jordan is an intentionally small, extremely safe school focused on deep and caring relationships between all students and adults. All those connected to this school take great pride in, and put special care toward, creating a nurturing community rooted in the shared value of social justice. Through its small class sizes, college-going culture, and focus on rigorous, independent thinking, many JJSE students become the first in their families to attend college.  

 

Though only four students were physically injured, this terrible incident has shaken everyone in the community, particularly the staff and students at June Jordan. Fortunately the school has a strong tradition of coming together daily to discuss challenging topics and to support one another. In addition to coming together as a community, JJSE has trained counselors who will be meeting with students and faculty. We deeply appreciate the educators and students at June Jordan School for Equity and will proudly stand by them through this disturbing, but temporary, challenge.

 

Myong Leigh

7th Grade Schedule Change Update | Informe sobre el cambio de horario de septimo grado
Dear 7th Grade Families,
 
I would like to provide a quick update regarding our upcoming schedule changes. Tomorrow is the big day and as we begin our new grading period, our 7th grade students impacted by Mr. Chala's departure have been reassigned to either Ms. Rosario or Ms. Sax for math instruction. We are also fortunate to have an average class size of 28.6 in the 7th grade academic classes (math, science, language arts and social studies). More specifically, in math, our average class size is 32.3, just under the district standard of 1:33.
 
Our students will report to homeroom as usual and it is there where students will receive their new schedules. Please note that we had to make several adjustments to meet the needs of all of our students. It is very possible that some students will have new teachers for their academic courses as we balanced the class sizes. Please review your child's schedule, which will also be available via school loop beginning Monday.
 
As I mentioned above, Monday is the start of the new grading period for the 2nd nine weeks. All prior student grades were maintained by Asst. Principal Deis. The students have received relevant math instruction the last 2 1/2 weeks and that material was collected and graded so that an accurate grade can be assigned. The first 9 week progress report will still show Mr. Chala as the teacher for math and the grade assigned was compiled as stated above. 
 
Please keep in mind we are continuing to actively recruit for a math teacher and it is our hope to have one before the end of the semester. Having a teacher hired before the end of the semester will be ideal so that he/she may co-teach with our current staff to learn the curriculum, get to know our students and school community, and be ready to take on the classes at the start of the new semester in January.
 
In the meantime, we have received a 7 point plan from the Office of Professional Learning outlining the varied support systems being offered to James Lick and our new teachers. We look forward to working with our colleagues to implement the plan so that our staff can receive the needed assistance so that they too are successful.
 
As always, please know I am available to answer any questions, comments or concerns you might have regarding our changes. 
 
Thank you,
Mr. Q
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Estimadas Familias de 7º grado,
 
Me gustaría ofrecer una rápida actualización acerca de nuestros próximos cambios de horario. Mañana es el gran día y al comenzar nuestro nuevo período de calificaciones, los estudiantes de grado 7 que fueron afectados por la salida del Sr. Chala han sido resignados con la Sra. Rosario o la Srta. Sax para la enseñanza de matemáticas. También tenemos la suerte de tener un tamaño promedio de clase de 28.6 en las clases académicas de 7º grado (matemáticas, ciencias, lectura y ciencias sociales). Para ser mas especifico, el tamaño de las clases de matemáticas son 32.3, bajo de la norma del distrito que es 1:33.  
 
Nuestros estudiantes se reportaran al salón homeroom igual como lo han hecho antes y es allí donde los estudiantes recibirán sus nuevos horarios. Tenga en cuenta que tuvimos que hacer varios ajustes para satisfacer las necesidades de todos nuestros estudiantes. Es muy posible que algunos estudiantes tendrán nuevos maestros para sus cursos académicos como hemos equilibrado el tamaño de las clases. Por favor revise el horario de su hijo, que también estará disponible a través de School Loop a partir del lunes.
 
Como he mencionado anteriormente, el lunes es el inicio de un nuevo periodo de calificación para la 2ª nueve semanas. Todas las calificaciones de los estudiantes anteriores se mantuvieron con mi sub directora Deis. Los estudiantes habían recibido la instrucción de matemáticas relevantes de los últimos 2 1/2 semanas y se recogió ese material, y clasificarse de manera que se puede asignar una calificación precisa. El primer informe de avance 9 semanas seguirá mostrando el Sr. Chala como el maestro de matemáticas y el grado asignado fue compilado como se ha indicado anteriormente.
 
Se le recuerda además que continúamos reclutar activamente un profesor de matemáticas y tenemos la esperanza de tener uno antes del final del semestre. Tener un profesor contratado antes del final del semestre será ideal para que él / ella puede co-enseñar con nuestro personal actual para aprender el plan de estudios, llegar a conocer a nuestros estudiantes y la comunidad escolar, y estar listo para asumir las clases en el Comienzo del nuevo semestre en enero.
 
Mientras tanto, hemos recibido un plan de 7 puntos de la Oficina de Aprendizaje Profesional delineando los variados sistemas de apoyo que se ofrecen a James Lick y nuestros nuevos maestros. Esperamos con interés trabajar con nuestros colegas para poner en práctica el plan para que nuestro personal pueda recibir la ayuda necesaria para que ellos también tengan éxito.
 
Como siempre, estoy disponible para responder a cualquier pregunta, comentario o preocupación que pueda tener con respecto a nuestros cambios.
 
Gracias,
Sr. Quesada

No credible "creepy clown" reports at SFUSD

For several weeks, there have been reports on social media concerning "creepy clown" sightings and pranks. While these reports come from different parts of the country, they all share a similar theme of frightening people and threatening violence.

 

Although there is no credible threat in San Francisco, the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) has been in continuous communication with the district. Local law enforcement and the district are actively monitoring social media posts, including rumors that clowns would show up at schools threatening to do harm. Schools will use safety precautions if necessary, including prohibiting unauthorized visitors, and will immediately contact law enforcement when warranted.

Back to School Night - Noche de "Regreso a la Escuela"
JLMS Families,
 
I'd like to welcome you to our annual Back to School Night this Thursday, 9/22. The event is scheduled from 5:30pm to 8pm. We will begin in the cafe at 5:30pm where families may purchase pizza from our PTSA, purchase JLMS gear, meet our family liaison and engage with our various community based organizations that will be present with us. 
 
At 5:55pm, we will ring the bell and ask all families to report to homeroom. You will need your child's schedule as you will be following it throughout the night. Counselors will be available to provide you with a schedule just in case you forgot your child's schedule and just in case your child is not with you. Once in homeroom, you'll hear some brief announcements, a brief welcome and an overview of the evening. You will begin changing classes just like our students throughout the night. Each class will last about 10 minutes, you will hear a brief overview of the teacher's expectations and they will share a copy of the course syllabus and/or course description. 
 
We are all excited to see everyone this Thursday and we hope all of our families can make it. Please know that parking will be available on the upper yard beginning at 5pm. Enter thru 25th Street for access.
 
Thank you,
Principal Quesada

Familias de JLMS,
 
Me gustaría darle la bienvenida a nuestra noche anual, "Regreso a la Escuela" este jueves, 9/22. El evento está programado 17:30-20:00. Comenzaremos en la cafetería a las 17:30 donde las familias pueden comprar pizza, comprar equipo JLMS (patrocinado por nuestro PTSA), conocer a nuestro enlace de familias y participar con nuestras diversas organizaciones comunitarias que estarán presentes con nosotros.
 
A las 17:55, vamos a sonar el timbre y pedir a todas las familias que llegue al aula principal, indicado en el horario de su niño. Necesitará el horario de su hijo porque van a seguirlo durante la noche. Los consejeros estarán disponibles para ofrecerle un horario por si acaso se le olvidó el horario de su hijo y sólo en caso de que su hijo no está con usted. Una vez en el aula, se escuchara unos breves anuncios, una breve bienvenida y una visión general de la noche. Usted va tener la misma experiencia de cambio de clases igual que nuestros estudiantes durante este evento. Cada clase tendrá una duración de unos 10 minutos, se escuchará un breve resumen de las expectativas del maestro y que compartirá una copia del programa del curso y / o descripción del curso.
 
Estamos todos muy contentos de ver a todos este jueves y esperamos que todas nuestras familias pueden hacerlo. Por favor, sepa que el estacionamiento estará disponible en el patio superior a partir de las 17:00. Entre por la calle 25 para tener acceso. 
 
Gracias,
Director Quesada
