• Attention 6th and 7th grade girls! For the 3rd year in a row San Diego Unified is partnering with Project Lead the Way to offer the PLTW Girls Tech Camp (previously known as the Girls Coding Camp)! This year we are excited that PLTW will host the camp at San Diego State’s new build IT Lab. This camp is only available to female San Diego Unified School District students entering 7th and 8th Grade during the 2017-2018 school year. Please use the following link for additional information and to register: www.pltwca.net/go/GirlsTechCamp2017 Spots are limited and they will fill up quickly, so if you are interested, sign up asap! If you have any questions, stop by the counseling office.
• Staff – Please remember to flush your drinking fountain and faucet (for one minute) in your classroom. Until our school gets tested, we will need to do this every day! After our school gets tested and passes the water test, we will then be able to stop flushing our drinking fountains and other faucets.
• Francis Parker will be offering some fun, educational summer courses for middle school students, including new courses, such as: Creative Builders STEM, An Introduction to Electrical Engineering, Bicycle Adventures, Hollywood Video Creations and Legomation Power Camp, JAVA script, as well as a summer drama production. In addition, they will be holding their 7th Annual Summer Jazz Workshop, in partnership with the House of Blues and Jazz 88.3. For more information about these programs, go to www.francisparker.org/summer or pick up a brochure in the counseling office.
• Teachers – please remember to take attendance every day, every period within the first 10 minutes of class.
• Early Release of Student – If you know ahead of time that your child needs to leave school early (i.e. Dr., Dentist, Ortho, personal), please have your child bring in a note to the attendance desk before school on that day. This is the most effective and efficient way to have your child waiting for you when you need them! Return the blue slip if your child returns to school.
• Student Deliveries – in order to limit disruption during instruction, items being delivered during the school day should be for emergencies only. Items will be left on the table in the office with your child’s name on it for students to pick-up during passing periods, lunch, or after school. Please instruct your child to check the table if they notice they forgot their lunch, PE clothes, school work, etc…
• REMINDER - Treats such as cookies and birthday cakes for other students are NOT to be brought to school. They will be kept in the office until the end of the day.
LUNCH CLUBS – If you are going to a club, you MUST meet your teacher at the outside building door during the first 5 minutes of lunch. If the teacher is not there, you may not enter the building.

• Students we want to make sure that you are obeying the traffic signals at Pomerado Road. When the walk light turns red you MUST stop - do not go on and cross at this time. Also, if you ride a bike you should be walking it across the street - you need to stay inside the crosswalk and obey all signs just like pedestrians - you may ride your bike across when the light is green and the "walk" sign is on!
