News and Announcements

San Pedro High School: All Hands on Deck!

San Pedro High School is a public high school in the Los Angeles Unified School District, with two campuses: Flagship and the John M. and Muriel Olguin Campus. Located in the city of San Pedro, Los Angeles County, the Flagship campus is divided into four different SLC’s (Small Learning Communities), one of which is Global Environmental. Global Environmental offers the capstone classes, Marine Biology, Science and Research, Zoology and International Relations, and features an advisory board headed by ITEP (International Trade Education Program). The board includes local non-profit organizations and multinational business establishments, which allows students to experience career coaching, job shadowing and internship opportunities while in high school.

San Pedro High School is fortunate to have a dedicated science teacher, Jennifer Cheng, who has created diverse learning opportunities for her students. These range from local to far-flung field trips, science fairs, community service opportunities and competitions. With an emphasis on hands-on outdoor education, her students become passionate about environmental stewardship. Mrs. Cheng is a leader in the environmental literacy movement within her district.

PIRATE BOOSTER SCHOLARSHIP DINNER
Special thanks to all of our coaches that attended the scholarship dinner last night. It was a great event and many students were recognized. Our Pirate Booster President and the Booster organization put together a fabulous evening that honored rich traditions, past success, and many of our donors.

THANK YOU
Special thanks to all of our activity sponsors, coaches, testing coordinators and helpers, and directors for the end of year performances and competitions. This time of year can be so hectic ~ but we know you help to keep it in perspective! Thanks for everything you do for our kiddos! We would not be the school that we are without you! We are especially proud of your hard work and dedication, and your ability to provide opportunities for our kiddos to shine!

SBM CALENDAR UPDATE
Super thanks to Ms. Ritz for putting together our year long calendar. Many of the items needed for the finalization of the 2015-2016 school year calendar are not available yet from the District. SBM did a lot of work last night to get as much scheduling done as possible and as soon as a few more pieces are published by the District, the calendar will be published.



We are all very happy to have a much needed three day weekend! I hope you have plans to fill your cup up so that we can make it through the last two weeks of school. This is a challenging and stressful time of year ~ take special time for you this weekend to rejuvenate! Relax! Enjoy every moment of your three days!

Take care Pirates!

In the News + Graduation Information

​Hello Pirates,
​​​​Ms. Cheng has been nominated for a Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Science by SC3! We are so proud of all of her work and accomplishments that enable our kiddos to shine in our community!

Mr. Crowley is on the FRONT PAGE of LAUSD.net yesterday and today! Check it out!!! Here is the direct link to the article: http://home.lausd.net/apps/news He is flying to Chicago soon to pick-up his big award!!

Ms. Bruhnke is being recognized March 10, by the board of education for her wonderful Carlston Foundation National Award.

SPHS teachers ROCK!! Spread the word! Tell a neighbor! We have an AWARD WINNING STAFF!!!

Williams Inspection:

The inspectors came to our campus today to walk in over 60 classrooms. We received a rating of GOOD, which is much better than the FAIR rating we received last year! Thanks to all of our teachers that maintain safe rooms and especially to those teachers that took the extra time to clean up and clean out this past week!

Graduation:

This event is used to generate donation funds for the senior class of SPHS. These funds are used to pay for and greatly subsidize senior breakfast, extravaganza, flowers for the senior ceremonies, balloons, extra rentals for the actual event, professional programs, and so much more! It all goes back into the Student Store for STUDENT BODY USE. It provides the students with classy materials/food/jumpers for the events that they have anticipated all year long as seniors. We know our staff is extremely generous with a variety of charities and organizations. If you would like to participate, please let Mr. Jacobson know and you will receive a small amount of compensation as appreciation for your participation (not x time). If you are not willing to participate, that is perfectly acceptable! It is not a mandate, nor a requirement. I am sure that our students would love to see you, however we completely understand that this is optional, not required, nor tracked! No worries!

Graduation Time: We are going to vote one more time. It became apparent that students believed that a 5 pm graduation time would include fireworks. Not true. It won't be dark by 7 pm. We are asking for Econ/Gov teachers' assistance in taking one more vote ~ just to be sure that we are all on the same page. This is the last vote ~ no repeat votes from this point. Choices are 3:30 pm or 5 pm start.

GALLAGHER:

Join SPHS in a live Q & A session with Kelly Gallagher! Bring evidence that you are using a strategy or two of his and you'll receive his new book! Schools with the most number of teachers in attendance can win excellent prizes! When: March 9. Time: 3:30 pm. Where: Toyota USA Automobile Museum, 19600 Van Ness Ave., Torrance, CA 90501. Please see attached flier! Refreshments will be provided.

DON'T FORGET:
REED Professional Development Update & SURVEY:
Unfortunately, the funding for payment for Module I has not dropped into our accounts yet. We are very hopeful to have the funding and the directions for payment this week. I will keep you updated on the process and the timeline to expect to see the five hours of x time. Thanks to everyone who participated. It was a long night, but we made it!

We are about to receive Module II of the Reed PD. We have established tentative dates for the training and we are looking forward to solidifying the methods in which the delivery of the PD is to roll out for our SPHS staff. Please click on this link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/D9YBJFZ) prior to Friday, March 7, 2015. It should only take a few minutes to state your individual preferences. All of your input will be shared at the Reed PD Planning Committee meeting that is happening this Friday, March 7, at period 6. Those teachers that respond will have their preferences shared with the planning team. Dates and groupings are all part of the survey! Please contribute your ideas!

Thanks for reading to the bottom!

Have a great ELECTION day!

Jeanette
