Principal's Message

January 2021
 
Dear Families,

We are proud of our students for their hard work in distance learning during the 1st Semester. Their dedication, flexibility and humor were crucial factors of their success -- students, keep up the great work!  

Chromebooks
We are fortunate to begin this semester with new Chromebooks.  Please be sure to bring in and exchange the old Chromebook because the lease is over and we need to return them. 

Illuminate to Infinite Campus Switch
The Live Oak School District has switched their Student Information System from Illuminate to Infinite Campus. Currently, parents and students can view Illuminate for 1st semester grades and attendance, and second semester schedules. In this 2nd semester, we are no longer tracking attendance or grades in Illuminate. Please rely on Google Classroom to track assignments and grades we can register families to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal, later in January. As we have information about how to access the new Infinite Campus Parent Portal, we will share it with all families. 

Gear Up Grant
Live Oak School District and Santa Cruz City School District applied for a joint grant through the U.S. Department of Education called Gear Up. We were thrilled to learn that we received the grant for all of our current 6th and 7th grade classes. This grant follows these students from Shoreline (and Branciforte) through Harbor and into their first year of college. The focus of the grant is supporting students on their path to college. We look forward to adding tutors to our Math classes to support our current students. 

UCSC College Experience
Each year, our 7th graders attend a college visit to either Cal State Monterey Bay or UC Santa Cruz. Due to the school closure, the 7th graders did not get to attend this important field trip last March. On Friday, January 15th, all 7th and 8th graders will participate in a virtual college experience with UCSC during their Advisory Class. Students will learn about what classes to take in high school in order to be eligible for college. Please be sure that your student attends their Advisory class next Friday. 

Advisory Changing to Mondays
We are making an adjustment to the Advisory Schedule for the Second Semester. Beginning Monday, January 25th, Advisory classes will be held on Mondays at the same time (1:55-2:30pm). Advisory is a scheduled and required class for all students. We share important school announcements, provide opportunities to build school community, and take school-wide assessments. We are moving Advisory to Mondays so that students hear important announcements earlier in the week and have better attendance than Friday afternoons.

Thank you, 
Ms. Martin & Ms. Nix

Queridas Familias,

Estamos orgullosos de nuestros estudiantes por su duro trabajo en la educación a distancia durante el primer semestre. Su dedicación, flexibilidad y humor son factores cruciales para su éxito. Estudiantes, ¡sigan con el gran trabajo!

Chromebooks
Tenemos la suerte de comenzar este semestre con nuevas Chromebooks. Asegúrese de traer e intercambiar el Chromebook antiguo porque el contrato de arrendamiento finalizó y debemos devolverlo.

Illuminate a Infinite Campus Cambio
El distrito escolar de Live Oak ha cambiado su sistema de información estudiantil de Illuminate a Infinite Campus. Actualmente, los padres y los estudiantes pueden ver en Illuminate las calificaciones y asistencia del primer semestre y los horarios del segundo semestre. En este segundo semestre, ya no estamos rastreando la asistencia o las calificaciones en Illuminate. Por favor, confíe en Google Classroom para realizar un seguimiento de las asignaciones y las calificaciones. Podemos registrar familias en el Portal para padres de Infinite Campus, más adelante en enero. Cuando tengamos la información sobre cómo acceder al nuevo Portal para Padres de Infinite Campus, lo compartiremos con todas las familias.

Subvención de Gear Up
El Distrito Escolar Live Oak y el Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de Santa Cruz solicitaron una subvención conjunta a través del Departamento de Educación de EE. UU. llamada Gear Up. Nos emocionó saber que recibimos la subvención para todas nuestras clases actuales de sexto y séptimo grado. Esta subvención sigue a estos estudiantes desde Shoreline (y Branciforte) a través de Harbor y hasta su primer año de universidad. El enfoque de la subvención es apoyar a los estudiantes en su camino hacia la universidad. Esperamos agregar tutores a nuestras clases de matemáticas para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes actuales.

Experiencia universitaria de UCSC
Cada año, nuestros estudiantes de séptimo grado asisten a una visita universitaria a Cal State Monterey Bay o UC Santa Cruz. Debido al cierre de la escuela, los estudiantes de séptimo grado no pudieron asistir a esta importante excursión el marzo pasado. El viernes 15 de enero, todos los estudiantes de séptimo y octavo grado participarán en una experiencia universitaria virtual con UCSC durante su clase de asesoramiento. Los estudiantes aprenderán qué clases tomar en la escuela secundaria para ser elegibles para la universidad. Por favor asegúrese de que su estudiante asista a su clase de asesoría el próximo viernes.

Aviso de Asesoría a cambiado a lunes
Estamos haciendo un ajuste al Programa de Asesoramiento para el Segundo Semestre. A partir del lunes 25 de enero, las clases de asesoramiento se llevarán a cabo los lunes a la misma hora (1: 55-2:30 pm). La asesoría es una clase programada y requerida para todos los estudiantes. Compartimos anuncios escolares importantes, brindamos oportunidades para construir una comunidad escolar y tomamos evaluaciones en toda la escuela. Estamos trasladando el asesoramiento a los lunes para que los estudiantes escuchen los  anuncios importantes a principios de la semana y tengan una mejor asistencia que los viernes por la tarde.

Gracias,
Sra. Martin y Sra. Nix
