11/7 Late Start Modified Monday Schedule

This Monday, November 7th is a modified Monday. During this time, teachers will be either (1) offering retakes/remediation for students or (2) will be meeting with their fellow colleagues to collaborate on instructional practices. Those teachers who are offering remediation/retake opportunities will have communicated with their students. While school begins at 9:45am, campus will open at the standard 8am time for students who are scheduled with teachers for remediation/retakes. We encourage all students who have scheduled remediation/retake opportunities to take advantage of this time to hone their learning.

We Hear YOUth Survey

Mending Matters is working with a group of student advisors here at Scripps Ranch High School to roll out the We Hear YOUth survey. The purpose of the We Hear YOUth Survey is for Mending Matters to learn how students view their student body’s mental health needs, so that Mending Matters can create responsive resources that make sense for students’ unique mental health needs. The survey is voluntary and anonymous and will be offered to the entire school during advisory on November 16th, 2022. Please see We Hear YOUth Survey parent/guardian letter for further details. 

Wednesday College Series

The next Wednesday College Series will be held on November 9, 2022, featuring college admissions counselors from Digi Pen Institute of Technology, Grand Canyon University, Loyola University, Maryland, Muhlenberg College, University of Delaware, University of Rochester, and University of San Diego.  For more information about this and other college preparation information, please visit the Scripps Ranch High School Foundation College Corner: https://srhsfoundation.org/college-corner
