Dear Mariner Families,

 

We are excited to announce that on March 30th, Aptos High School will be converting to a new version of School Loop. This conversion will bring changes to the way the AHS homepage will look and navigate. Please see the attached image to get a sneak peek of our new homepage. Here are some things to consider when we convert to the new version:

 

  • Previous side navigation links will be moved to new dropdown menus, new quicklink icons or the “I want to…” feature.

  • The process for checking your student’s grades in School Loop will stay the same.

 

While the new homepage layout will allow for more streamlined navigation to the rest of the school website, we understand that it may take some time getting familiar with it. When the website is converted to the new version, we will provide additional details to support your navigation and use.

 

Sincerely,

 

Aptos High School

Dear Mariner Parents/Guardians,

 

Aptos High School is preparing for the WASC 6-year self-study. For those of you not familiar with the process of accreditation, our school is certified by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, or WASC for short. WASC is an association that ensures that schools meet various standards in all aspects of running a school.


The self-study revolves around an in-depth gathering of data and information that will help our school take an analytical look at:

1. Critical student learning needs
2.  School-wide learner outcomes
3.  Academic standards
4.  Effectiveness of programs and operations, and their impact on student learning.

 

It is important the school receives feedback from all stakeholders, including parents/guardians. Your participation in completing the Parent/Guardian WASC Survey is appreciated. Please plan to complete this survey in one sitting. It will take about 15-20 minutes. All responses will remain confidential. Thank you for taking the time to answer this carefully and honestly. We value your responses and thank you in advance.

 

Sincerely,

 

AHS Administration and Staff

  • Installation of 70" TV/Teacher amplification system/document camera in every classroom
  • Upgraded network with a robust school Wi-Fi to accommodate additional wireless devices.
  • Tech upgrades to the newly renovated Library Learning Lab
  • Instructional software licensing and availability to all students
  • Voice Over Internet (VoIP) phones 
  • A full-time site technician
  • ... and more

In order to continue receiving and distributing technology funds to build advanced 21st Century “Intelligent Classrooms” at Aptos High School and throughout the district, we need input from all stakeholders. Please take a few minutes to complete the Bright Bytes Technology Survey detailing the current use of technology within the Aptos High School community.

Good Evening Mariner Families,

 

Last week the guidance team made adjustments to tutorial class rosters. The teachers, guidance counselors, and administration thought it  would be best for students to have a tutorial teacher that also teaches one of their other classes. Starting tomorrow (9/13), your student may have a different tutorial teacher than before. A list of the new tutorial assignments were shared with the students today. Lists of the new tutorial assignments are also posted on the following buildings:

 

  • Main Office - 9th grade tutorial list

  • Cafeteria -  10th grade tutorial list

  • Warmerdam Gym - 11th grade tutorial list

  • I-Building - 12th grade tutorial list

 

Assigned tutorial classes can also be found on student and parent SchoolLoop accounts.

 

Please talk with your student tonight about possible Tutorial class changes starting tomorrow.

 

Thanks and have a great evening.

Student Schedules

 

Welcome Back Students and Parents,

 

The following is to inform you on the processes for requesting a student schedule change.

 

Requests for schedule change:

If you wish to request a schedule change, please submit a Request for Schedule Change form in the Guidance office. Counselors will call students to the office in the order in which Request for Schedule Change forms were submitted. If you have already submitted a course change request, there is no need to resubmit.  Please note that schedule change requests are only processed with a completed Request for Schedule Change form.

 

Only students with “gaps” in their schedules report to the office during that period:

During the first few days of school counselors will be primarily focused on seeing students who have unscheduled periods (what we call having “a gap” in your schedule). So if you do not have a class on your schedule for any particular period, go to the guidance office that period.

 

Schedules subject to change:

Please note that all students’ schedules are subject to change. Some classes may be impacted or over-enrolled. Counselors therefore will be balancing classes by removing students from overloaded classes, and adding students to less impacted classes, giving priority to students who have best met the recommended placement criteria, students who are closest to graduation, and students whose schedules least permit change.

 

For additional information related to schedule changes, please contact your guidance counselor.

 

Thank you,

 

Ben Slyder

Mindfulness:

Presence and Awareness
Starting off a new school year can be challenging to switch from our too-short summer mode back to being organized and ready for classes, activities, clubs, or whatever else we're supposed to do and wanting to do.  Some of us can feel the pressure of all we now have on our plates.

 

In our busy world, our minds and bodies can respond to these changes and stress.  We may have a hard time slowing down for much needed resting moments. It is also easy to get stuck thinking about things in the past or the future, while forgetting to focus on the present here and now.


The benefits of mindfulness for children, teens, and adults are numerous, including increased health benefits, decreased stress, and increased resilience.


Mindfulness itself is a challenge to define, and it can be a challenge to get started. Some say mindfulness is not hard nor easy, but remembering to be mindful can be difficult especially when first attempting to establish the habit. Simply put, mindfulness is bringing our awareness to the present moment without judgement.  It can be practiced while being still or by mindful movements. There's a lot a great mindfulness information out there to help us out. To get started, click on the links below.

Be Well,

Hello Caring Families and Students,

 

While the school year is coming to a close, this does not impact when students might benefit from counseling support.  The counseling agencies that provide onsite services at our school such as PVPSA are full and/or are closed for onsite referrals for the school year.. 

 

For students or families who are seeking counseling, the best way for them to get those services will be for them to see counselors off campus at the counselors’ offices. Here are some agencies accepting new counseling clients with Medi-cal or may offer a sliding payment scale:

 

 The Parent Center

Spanish speaking counselors have a waitlist

English speaking counselors do not have a waitlist

724-2879

 

La Manzana

724-2997

 

Youth Services

688-8856

 

 

PVPSA (At their office)

728-6445

 

*Private Insurance:

    

Students with private insurance can call the number on the back of their insurance card to inquire about providers and services. 

 

In addition, Psychology Today, Find a Therapist, Psychologist or Counselor is a resource to look up providers by insurance type and/or location:  https://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms

 

Be Well, Someone cares.
