Computech Summer School Bus Schedule

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.

This weekend was a great one for Computech Tigers…check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for announcements, but as a recap, we had championship students throughout the Fresno Unified Tournament of Technology, Championship percussionists, 2nd place Color Guard girls, and individual awards at the Science Olympiad State Tournament.  Busy weekend for our students, but one that should remind us all that we are part of one of the best and most talented school communities in the country!  Well done!

As a reminder, this week would typically be our School Site Council Meeting and PTSO, since it is the first Wednesday of the Month.  However, both meetings were rescheduled in order to make room for our TWO incoming 7th grade orientation/registration nights this Tuesday and Wednesday evening.  Yes, it is that time again, when we welcome our newest class to Computech’s campus to tell them a little more about the school community they are joining for the 17-18 school year.  Once again, SSC and PTSO will NOT take place this week.  Listen for future updates in the Sunday message. 

We have late start Thursday this week, and Spring Break begins this Saturday.  There will NOT be a Sunday home message next Sunday, but I will resume with my message on Sunday, April 16th to remind everyone that there is one more day off of school before coming back on Tuesday, April 18th.  I hope everyone has a restful, fun, and family filled week and a day off. 

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

Just two brief announcements today; one is the a letter should have come home from our 7th grade science teachers to families of our 7th grade Tigers regarding our human sexuality unit in Science class.  Be on the lookout for that, and if you have interest in seeing this curriculum it will be available in the office this coming week. 

Second, we voted to move the School Site Council from April 5th to March 29th in order to ensure that the council could sign off on the decisions regarding our School Site Plan and Budget.  Therefore, school site council will meet in room 76 this Wednesday from 3:00pm to about 3:50pm. 

We do have a late start schedule Thursday, and our monthly Jeanius Day is scheduled for Friday.  Keep those grades up…we have just two weeks before Spring Break!

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.

Thank you to all of our parents and chaperones for their hard work and dedication to 7th grade zoo trip students this past Wednesday.  It was a beautiful day, and a great event!  Congratulations to our boys baseball team for making it to the playoffs and our Girls basketball team championship game.   I know they all played very hard, and more importantly they represented Computech better than ever.  We’ll get them next year!

School Messenger was down for some teachers all over the district this past week, so we apologize if you typically are getting teacher messages and didn’t this week.  We are working with both Fresno Unified and School Messenger to determine how to correct this problem.

Monday and Tuesday, our academic counselor, Ms. Miles will have students out of their science periods to do required A-G credit discussions.  For 7th graders, this will also be the time to prioritize elective choices for next year.  Take a moment to check the website’s course catalog for different options.  A few possible new elective offerings will be sent home with students Monday afternoon in order to make sure you have all of the information heading into next year.  Finally, once students select their electives, they will bring those selections home on paper to parents and families to sign off on.  We like everyone to be on the same page for decisions about next year.

Quarter 3 ended on Friday.  Teachers may be updating grades into Monday, but we are truly looking to Quarter 4 as the last stretch before summer…and for some of you, high school.  This is the time to get motivated and pursue excellence!

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

Congratulations to those students and staff who work extremely hard leading up to yesterday’s Science Olympiad regional championship win.  There are too many awards to mention, but we are proud of our Tigers for all the work that went into that regional success!

Pennies for Patients; run through CORE classes, but will collect as a school, as well.  Any little bit helps.

Kids Day is Tuesday, March 7.  When you come to campus Tuesday morning, we hope you are prepared to help out our students collecting donations in exchange for newspapers.

Late start schedule Thursday.

A few students asked that I make some clarifying remarks regarding our dress code, and I’m happy to do so.  Specifically, I’d like to first remind families to review the FUSD standard of dress available on the district’s webpage with references: “Fashions that draw undue attention to the wearer detract from the educational environment and are not acceptable. This includes exotic clothing, extreme make-up, body piercing, military or camouflage attire, etc.”

Computech’s Standard of Dress takes the district policy one step further to include our specific colors, and call outs regarding professionalism being part of the Computech way.  Specifically, note that most anything adhering to our dress code will be accepted and honored for our boys and girls as long as it is in moderation, and therefore does not distract the learning environment. 

Finally, Wednesday during advisory, we will be testing our wireless infrastructure for CAASPP testing conditions.  Therefore, we ask all students to ensure that they bring the device they would like to use for testing purposes.  For some, that will be a device from home or a long-term checkout from our library.  For others, it will mean ensuring that you have stopped at the library sometime before advisory on Wednesday.  Also, if you have one, please bring earphones or earbuds.  This way, you can ensure that your device is compatible with CAASPP testing requirements.  All of this helps to make sure we are well prepared in advance of state testing in late April.

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

This week, we celebrate our honor and high honor roll students with our annual Blackbeard’s night event.  If your child brought home an invitation to Blackbeard’s, please review the information regarding the evening event and we hope to see you there.  Please note that students invited to attend are eligible to bring one family member as a guest for free; any other family members who would like to attend can purchase a ticket at the gate.  Ineligible Computech students will not be allowed to take part in the event.

This week, Mrs. Miles will post the jeanius day eligibility list for Friday;s Jeanius day.  Please stay on top of ATLAS and Edutext towards being able to participate in this month’s Jeanius day. 

On another note, I wanted to thank the Computech students for their excellent conduct in the cafeteria and common areas around campus during these colder days.  The campus has stayed very clean, and our noon time assistants and campus assistants have noticed many of the students helping to pick up after one another.  What great proof of the wonderful student community we have…thank you and keep it up!

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

Thursday night, Computech celebrated its honor and high honor students at Blackbeard’s.  It was a great event, and thank you to the PTSO parents and staff who helped us make it a success!

Wednesday the School Site Council will meet at 3:00pm to accommodate the students joining us.  The extra 15 minutes early will allow them to catch the 3:52 bus.  Slated for Wednesday is a review of last year’s safety plan so that we can reflect upon changes that need to be made OR that the SSC would like to see.

Wednesday, the PTSO will meet at 5:30pm in the library.  We will review Blackbeard’s and plan for future Computech events. 

This Thursday is, once again, a late start Thursday schedule.

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

Thank you to those who attended Pieology this past week.  It was nice to see so many families out there! 

School Site Council ballots were given to our students to take home this past Friday during 8th period. The Computech School Site Council has two open positions and many nominees that we need to fill for the 2016/17 school year.  Parents, please ask your child for it if you haven’t already seen it!

Also, this past week you should have seen progress reports from your Tiger.  We ask that you sign those and return them so students can get the orange, official copy to bring home to you.  We also sent how our first batch of letters on Friday.  These letters indicate if a student has fallen from the elgibilty list in the past week, or joined it from being ineligible.  Just another way to keep you informed about your child’s progress, along with EduText, and access to ATLAS.  If you have questions about any of these communication toola, please call the school at 457-2640.

Wednesday, Computech is hosting the annual “Mud” Run/Euro Style Cross Country invitational.  This event happens only 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 both Monday and Tuesday in order to show how the line will need to shift in order to accommodate for the meet.  Parking for the meet will me 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. 

Wednesday is also the middle school band night for our students at Sunnyside High School.  Check the school calendar for times, and we hope to see you there!

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.
