Good morning Computech community this is Dr. Scherrer with a weekly update to share some of the important events and happenings going on around campus.

As a reminder, this coming Friday, December 15th, will be our final scheduled school day of the fall semester and our final day of school before heading into winter break. Students will be issued their quarter two report cards when they return back to school in January. Parents can, of course, access their child’s progress at any time through the parent portal of ATLAS. Winter break will run from December 16th to January 7th. School will resume on Monday, January 8th.  I also want to let parents know that the Computech main office will be closed during winter break.

The annual winter dance will be held this coming Thursday, December 14th from 3-4:20 in the Computech Cafeteria. Dance tickets will be on sale beginning this week during break and lunch. Students will also be permitted to come to school dressed in non-standard dress on Thursday only if they have a dance ticket. Families are encouraged to review the non-standard dress rules on page 4 of their child’s agenda book to make sure that they are within our dress guidelines for non-standard dress.

Finally, we still have late start schedule on Friday, December 15th, and it is our last Jeanius Day of the quarter and semester.  We will also celebrate our Foreign Language Tiger of the Month on Friday.  If you are available, also note that our holiday band concert will be on the 15th at 6:00pm at the Fresno State Concert Hall.  It will be one to remember, and the final of a assortment of awesome Tiger talent.  

All right Computech Community, as this is the final message of 2017, I would like to say happy holidays to all our families and a happy new year as well. The next home message will be sent out on the evening of January 7th, the Sunday before the new semester begins.

Thank you, happy holidays and have a great night!

Good evening Computech community this is Dr. Scherrer calling with a weekly update about some of the important events and happenings going on around campus.

 

First and foremost, we must congratulate our Drama students for their wonderful rendition of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  I know I speak for many when I say it was particularly enjoyable, and could rival many high school productions.  Well done!

 

This week, be sure to check out MORE of our talented Tigers at the Orchestra concert taking place at Sunnyside HS on Wednesday at 6:30pm. 

 

Finally, the Edison Region schools—Computech included—will continue our pre-drive for dental hygiene products ahead of our first ever Edison Region Carnival.  The Carnival is scheduled for this Saturday, December 9thfrom 1:00pm to 4:00pm.  Our Regional Student Leadership Team consisting of students from all 10 schools in the Edison region designed this carnival as a fun event that collects items for the needy, homeless, and shelters in our area.  Computech is responsible for dental hygene products like toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, and mouthwash…and the more we can collect, the better! 

 

This week, I would like to challenge our students to bring in these items in a little competition.  Students, please bring dental hygiene items to first period all week, and the class with the most individual items will win a class prize from me!  We will come around on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to collect and count items…And, don’t forget to COME to the carnival on Saturday.  Computech’s booths will be a photo booth, ring toss, and “kissing booth” to guess the number of kisses in a jar.  It will be loads of fun!  Flyers will be in the front office for more information.

 

All right Computech community, that is all for this week. Thank you for tuning in every week for updates about our school and thank you for being part of our school where, along with you, we strive for the success of every student, every day.

I hope this message finds all of you well and well rested after this past week off from school. As a reminder, there are only three weeks of school remaining before winter break, and the end of the second quarter and first semester of the 2017/18 school year. 

I would like to invite all our families and community members to attend one of two showings of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow this week Wednesday or Thursday at 6:30pm in the Computech cafeteria.  Thanks to our Chevron and DonorsChoose.org patrons and the very hard work of both Mrs. Hbiler and Mr. Reidel, our students have been putting together an awesome performance of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow that you won’t want to miss.  We hope to see you there!

Our Tiger football team pulled out a last minute win after an exciting game on Saturday against the Yosemite Bears.  If you weren’t already planning to, we’d love to see a huge turnout against Sequoia at the Championship game this Saturday, 10/21/17 at 11:00am at Sunnyside stadium.  Hope to see you there!

Finally, we are in the second week of the quarter, so don’t wait to check ATLAS, communicate with your teachers, and pull out a better second quarter than the first!

Good morning Computech community this is Dr. Scherrer calling with a weekly update about some of the important events and happenings going on around campus.

First and foremost, I wanted to say and few congratulations—our football team is off to a great winning streak, past weeks.  Keep up the great work, guys!  Also, on the golf front, Nicholas mouser just took the win for individuals and was deemed golf champion. Well done, Nicholas!  We don’t always get to highlight all the wonderful accomplishments each week, but when we are able, know it only represents a FRACTION of all the great work our Tigers do each week.  Keep it up!

As the weather becomes nice, like this beautiful Sunday morning, it could be tempting for our students to want to leave campus, even just to Edison.  Please note that students are not allowed off campus—even to Edison--once they arrive on campus in the morning.  The only exception is, of course, the classes that are at Edison during the appropriate time and period.  That includes during after school time.  Please use this as a reminder and discuss as a family, if necessary.

Friday marked the last day of the first quarter with only (3) quarters left.  Report cards will be coming home with students to sign on Tuesday during 1st period.  Please review, sign, and return the white copy so that students can be given and bring home a colored copy for your records. 

All right Computech community, that is all for this week. Thank you for tuning in every week for updates about our school and thank you for being part of our school where, along with you, we strive for the success of every student, every day.

Good morning Computech community this is Dr. Scherrer calling with a weekly update about some of the important events and happenings going on around campus.

Friday, a small packet of information with multicolored papers was sent home for parent/guardian review.  Please consider participating in PTSO, and sending the SSC ballot filled out.  Students can turn those into 1st period teachers OR the front office.  Also, there is a pre-assessment survey of some areas which we are working on our campus.  A link is on Facebook and was text messaged to you, as well, if you’d rather complete it online.  Thank you in advance!

Last week, science teachers sent home a passive consent form for our November showing of Nightmare on Puberty Street.  Passive consent means that if it doesn’t come back to us, you are giving consent for 8th grade Tigers to see the presentation at the end of November.  Any questions about this performance can be directed to our office, 559-457-2640. 

Finally, as the days are getting a bit cooler—aside from this week which looks like it will get back into the 90s—please make sure to review our outer wear standard of dress.  It is always a good idea to review out Guidelines for Success, which include our standard of dress. 

All right Computech community, that is all for this week. Thank you for tuning in every week for updates about our school and thank you for being part of our school where, along with you, we strive for the success of every student, every day.

September 17, 2017, Home Message (EURO MEET)

Good afternoon Computech community this is Dr. Scherrer calling with a weekly update about some of the important events and happenings going on around campus.

Very important for parents:  This Wednesday, September 20th, Computech is hosting the annual “Mud” Run/Euro Style Cross Country invitational.  This event happens once per year and changes the traffic pattern for parent pick up.  We ask all students who are able to take buses home on Wednesday in order to limit the number of parents picking up.  If you must use the pick up line, there will be a map distributed Monday after school in order to show how the line will need to shift in order to accommodate for the meet.  Parking for the meet will be available on the West field, and all cars entering the neighborhood around Computech will be rerouted to head north from Church towards campus and west down Belgravia towards Walnut. We know this can be cumbersome, but it is for the benefit of our cross country students and those from around the district. 

Students, we are going to be entering touring season at Computech and we need YOU as Tour Guides for our elementary school visitors.  All sixty-seven elementary schools that visit throughout the month of October are guided on our campus by current computech students.  If you are interested in representing our school during the tours, please navigate to our www.edisoncomputech.com student portal or to www.computechstudents.com BEFORE Wednesday at 4:00pm to apply. 

We will have a lockdown procedure drill on Tuesday during lunch.  This is meant as an FYI; there is no need to be alarmed as we practice locking down our school in the unlikely event of an emergency. 

All links from today’s announcement, including a link to a MAP (click for the mapp) of how the parent pickup will be impacted from our cross country meet on Wendesday will be available on www.edisoncomputech.com under “phone messages”, AND will be posted on Facebook and Twitter by this evening.

All right Computech community, that is all for this week. Thank you for tuning in every week for updates about our school and thank you for being part of our school where, along with you, we strive for the success of every student, every day.
