What do you think we STILL need to add?
Share your idea by Friday, March 4th.
At the February 17th Staff meeting, Mr. Kirby showed teachers the above blueprint. Teachers discussed the possible changes and added new things to the above picture. They are also emailing Mr. Kirby with other ideas.
What else do we need to add to the plan? If you have ideas, please contact Mr. Kirby. Lodi Unified School District has been working on a District-wide Facilities Master Plan since April of 2015. A Facilities Master Plan focuses on a long-range, strategic plan to align the District’s educational and operational goals with the physical facilities at each school site. The master plan process does not specifically design the buildings at each site, but provides a plan to achieve parity among school sites throughout the District to improve the educational environment for every student. Your input is valuable because you might be the one person who shares a critical idea that is essential to our upgrade. So, please speak up by Friday, March 4th.

The Class of 2015 Make Plans for High School
February is an exciting month for the Christa McAuliffe MIddle School Class of 2015. In January, students began previewing high school programs at the Bear Creek College and Career Expo. This week interested students can attend a presentation by MIddle College High School. February 18th, students can take a look at Tokay HIgh School's academic program. Lodi High's preview night is just before students register for 9th grade. As in the past, students don't stop their search at Lodi Unified School District's boundaries when it comes to finding the correct 4-year program. Again this year, students are attending previews at St. Mary's and Lincoln High Schools as well as looking at other outstanding San Joaquin County programs. Students are reminded to secure the proper applications and pay attention to filing deadlines so that s/he can gain entry to his/her favorite high school path. While students may look far and wide for the perfect high school program, each student is required to register for his/her home high school at the end of the February.
Of course, getting into the right high school program often requires middle school teacher recommendations. The most coveted recommendation is for Advanced Placement (AP) classes in English, Science and Social Science. Other recommendation letters are written by middle school teachers but typically the specialty letters start with an AP recommendation. 8th grade families should watch for AP recommendation announcements this month.
Here are some dates that all 8th graders should mark in their planners.
Wednesday - February 11th – College/Career presentations for 8th graders in the Library. Eighth graders will come in with their science class.
Tuesday - February 24th – 8th grade scheduling. Bear Creek and McNair counselors will be here to make presentations to our 8tgraders. Presentations will be made in the Library and students will come in with their science class. Teachers will be provided with lists of their students and the high school presentation they are supposed to be attending.
Thursday - February 26th – 8th grade scheduling. Bear Creek and McNair counselors will be back in the Library to do actual scheduling for 9th grade. Students will come in with their science class.
Last but far from least, 8th graders are encouraged to take some time and make a solid plan for their next four years. It's not just about 9th grade. 9th grade is simply the first step to 12th grade and graduation. It takes some serious thought. Of course, each student's planning should be done with the guidance of the student's parent/guaridans.

We look forward to meeting our 6th grade families and sharing an overview of our school program.
April 25th sign-ups are now closed.
The April 23rd event is more for the parent/guardians. The April 23rd Orientation explains middle school and registration to parent/guardians in a fashion to the presentation made to 6th grade students at their elementary school. We believe it's important for 6th graders to attend this meeting with their parent/guardian so that they can see their parent/guardian faces and reactions as they hear what’s in store for their student in middle school. Does the student have to attend with the parent/guardian? No. Yet, the April 23rd presentation will be done by Christa McAuliffe teachers. What the teachers say might be told a little bit differently than what the student heard at his/her school. Therefore, student attendance is a great idea.
April 25th: This event is for the STUDENT and his/her family to take middle school for a test drive. The parent is there to see the student's face and reactions to the exciting activities students will be doing in 7th grade. It’s one thing to hear about something; it’s another thing to actually participate. On April 25th, students and their parent will build a simple computer game, make a video, do a Science experiment, check out our school garden, and do a lunchtime activity with our Leadership students. Lunch? Yes, students and their families will receive a FREE pizza lunch. Does the parent have to come? YES! Consider the parent to be the student's permission slip to have fun and win prizes on April 25th. Unlike the April 23rd event, students and their parents must sign-up to do the Saturday event. That way Christa McAuliffe knows how much pizza to order. Makes sense. Sign-ups are now closed. No worries. In late April 2016, there will be another family day that you can attend.
