RISE Theme for May is EMPATHY: “If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks.

Go Green Tip: Turn off lights when you leave the room.

 

No Place For Hate April Resolution: I will think about specific ways my community members can promote respect for people and create a prejudice-free zone.

Conduct on the COA Campus: COA staff recently showed me a rolling chair and a large piece of wood that ASTI students pulled out of the refuse pile over to behind portable 4, 5, and 6.  It appears that students sat in the chair and used the wood (which had a shiny reflective surface) to light photos. I was also told that students pulled items out of that refuse pile to create a skateboard ramp recently. A reminder that ASTI students:

  1. Should not mess with the refuse pile over behind the dumpster
  1. Should  not play in the driveway
  2. Always wear a helmet and be safe
  3. If you move something, put it back where you found it
  4. Park Lime Bikes responsibly.  ASTI students may not ride Lime Bikes around campus during classes. ALL ASTI students riding Lime Bikes around campus at lunch or before/after school must have helmets & park the bike responsibly when done riding (do not block sidewalks, roadways or disabled access).

Failure to follow these guidelines will result in all students losing these privileges on the ASTI and COA campuses.  Please remind your classmates of this if you see them disregarding these guidelines. 

 

11th Graders:  All 11th graders should go to the computer lab during 2nd period on Friday, January 26th to receive their PSAT Scores.  All juniors are expected to attend unless they have a scheduled college class.

 

10th Graders:  Please go to the computer lab during your PE period on Friday, January 26th to receive your PSAT scores & get set up with free SAT prep through Khan Academy.  You will be excused from PE this day.

 

ASTI Prom now has a GoFundMe! If you can donate any amount you can help us by using the link: https://www.gofundme.com/asti-prom-2018. It will also help tremendously if you can share this to your family, friends, and people you know. Any questions can be answered by Yongqi Kuang.

RISE Theme for October is EMPATHY: “Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself.” --Mohsin Hamid
Go Green Tip: Borrow instead of buying.

B-E-E. What does that spell? Bee! As in, BEE excited for the second round of the spelling bee!! It will be held on Friday, November 3rd, in Ms. Ali’s room during LUNCH. The candidates will receive a slip, letting them know they will participate in the second round. Congratulations and please look forward to the Spelling Bee!

 

Spring 2017 College Registration Information:

ASTI’s college registration date is Friday, December 1st.  The Spring 2017 schedule of classes is available at passport.peralta.edu.  Seniors must turn in concurrent enrollment forms & spring schedule planners to Ms. Jurkovich next Monday, November 6th by 3pm.  Juniors must turn in concurrent enrollment forms & schedule planners to Ms. Jurkovich by Tuesday, November 7th at 3:00pm.  Concurrent enrollment forms and schedule planners are available at the front of the office and will be emailed over School Loop.  Students who turn in forms after their deadline will be placed at the back of the enrollment line for their class.  If students plan to register for a course that has a prerequisite (all math, English, and most science courses), students must attach a sticky note to their form with the class they are enrolling in and how they have met the prerequisite. For example, if you plan to take English 5 Spring, you would write “English 5—met prereq with English 1A Fall 2017” or “Biology 1A—Chemistry 1A complete Summer 2017.”  If you need a prerequisite cleared, and do not write it on a sticky note, your registration will be significantly delayed.  If you plan to take an intersession course, this must be submitted on a separate concurrent enrollment form for the Fall term.  Winter intersession adds to fall units—if you go over 11 units, you will be charged per unit fees that ASTI cannot cover.

 

10th graders who wish to take a college course in the spring must have at least a 3.0 ASTI GPA.  Taking a college class curing the 10th grade is not required or recommended by ASTI.  High school coursework should be prioritized.  10th graders may not take more than one course during the spring 2017 semester, and a college course must not conflict with ASTI classes.  If you are a 10th grader registering for a Spring 2017 class and are not presently taking a Fall 2017 college class, you must submit a new application to COA at cccapply.org.

 

All students registering for a college class Spring 2017:  You must all complete online orientation with COA in order to register.  Failure to complete orientation will place a hold on your account and you will not be allowed to register until you have completed the orientation.  Complete orientation at:  http://alameda.peralta.edu/orientation/online-orientation/

Students, you need to use your own network log in to use the printer in the office.  A number of you have been using classmate's log ins to access lab computers-- this will not be an option for the office computer.  If you forgot your password, please see Ms. Krasky to have it reset.

 

Seniors:  Attend the Cash for College Financial Aid Workshop tomorrow night Thursday, November 2nd at 6:30pm at Encinal High School’s Library/Media Center.  All 12th graders should attend the workshop with a parent to learn about filling out your FAFSA or Dream Act Application.  This will be the only financial aid night offered this school year.  Students and parents should bring copies of their W-2s, tax returns, and bank statements from 2016 to help them fill out the FAFSA/Dream Act.  If your family does not file taxes and/or receives public assistance bring these forms with you.  You will not share these personal forms with anyone—you will use them to help you answer FAFSA/Dream Act questions. Spanish translation will be available.

 

Sophomores:  Sophomore Family Info Night will be held tomorrow night Thursday, November 2nd at 6:00pm in Room D-237 at COA.  All 10th graders and a parent/guardian should attend to learn important information about preparing for four year college admissions, and the transition to full time community college students next year.  It’s important that all 10th graders prioritize their attendance at this event.  Chinese translation will be available for families at all information nights this year.

RISE Theme for October is SAFETY: “The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.” –Jane Addams
 

Go Green Tip: Take shorter showers.

 

This upcoming week (10/23) is spirit week!!! Classes will earn points for every lunch activity they win.  Classes earn points for dressing up—Advisory will visit all 4th period classes and for those who can’t make it or don’t have fourth period, please send in pictures! (Via School Loop email to Evelyn Pham or Vicki Vien or Clarissa Wu).

  • Monday is “I woke up like this” so get comfy and wear your PJs! The lunchtime event will be “breakfast rush” where reps from each class make breakfast, blindfolded.
  • Tuesday is Cowboys (Freshmen & Juniors) Vs. Aliens (Sophomores & Seniors), the lunchtime event is “how much you can remember about your partner?” We’ll give you a set of questions to ask your partner and you’ll have to memorize as much as you can, because we’ll test you on your memory.
  • Wednesday is Character Day so dress up as your favorite character! The lunchtime event will be Heads Up, so we’ll give each class rep a deck of cards, and their partner has to explain what the word is.
  • Thursday is Loco Logos Day! Dress up as or with a logo (ex: Nike, Adidas, sports teams, college teams, etc). The event is a logo contest, so each class has to make up their own logo, and will present it on this day. Please make it appropriate, teachers will be judging!
  • Friday is Class Color Day! Classes will wear their class colors, Freshmen are Orange, Sophomores are Red, Juniors are Green, and Seniors are Blue! The event will be Dance Pong, each class will have two reps, one person will be the class mascot and they can take turns throwing the ping pong balls into the cups. Under the cups will be a song or dance you have to sing or dance to.  Join us every day at lunch!!! 

 

Spirit Week also means it’s time for Penny Wars! Each class will have a container in the office they can put pennies into. (The more pennies in your class jar the more points!) You can try to sabotage the other classes by putting other coins or bills in other classes jars! Ex: A Sophomore putting a dollar in a Freshmen jar means the Freshmen class will lose points.
