Measure H Community Meeting

SJUSD will host a districtwide community meeting on Tuesday, October 14, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at Gunderson High, which is located at 622 Gaundabert Lane in San José. At this meeting, parents and community members will have the opportunity to reiterate to the school district the capital projects they believe the school district should pay attention to and provide any other comments regarding Measure H funds. You are invited to participate and provide your feedback.
The Measure H General Obligation bonds were approved by voters on November 6, 2012. ​Approximately $80 million in Measure H bonds will be issued in January 2015. These funds will help the school district make improvements in several areas—academic programs; school safety and security; classrooms and science labs; repair, construct, or equip school sites and classrooms; teacher retention by upgrading technology; and much more.

Hello Falcon Families,

This is your weekly update.

The end of the grading period is this Friday, October 31st. Please make sure that all assignments and projects are turned in for this grading period by Friday.

All students should have received their Fall Fundraiser Catalogs this week. Students can earn lots of money to support student activities and great prizes.  The fundraiser starts today and ends on November 6th.  Be sure to bring the catalogs to work, family and friends.  The first turn in day will be Thursday, October 30th.  Students who bring in orders with 25 or more items will earn a Limo Lunch to Benihana’s on the first turn-in day.

Students will be allowed to wear Halloween Costumes on Friday for Halloween, however no fake blood, toy weapons, gangster/pimp, hobo/bum outfits will be allowed.  Girl’s costumes should also be appropriate for a middle school environment, no short shorts, no revealing outfits. Students who want to dress up as an athlete must come to school with equipment for the sport also, not just a jersey. Students can bring masks to school, however cannot wear them until the costume contest at lunch.  Red and blue will be allowed if they are worn as apart of a costume.

Curriculum: Common Core Standards 2013 - 2014

Below are sites that can assist parents and students in understanding and preparing for the upcoming shift to Common Core Standards.  These links outline what is Common Core, the rationale for a National Common Core Standard, the shifts in thinking these changes will require from educators, parents, and students, and the substantially different manner in which students will be assessed in 2014-15.  The district team of Curriculum and Instruction, as well as a team of classroom teachers, has been meeting, reviewing the standards, and creating units to prepare SJUSD for this change.  As well, the team of teachers have been piloting these units in preparation for next year’s rollout of Common Core. We are excited about the change to curriculum that fosters greater analysis and critical thinking to assist our students in preparing for their future in the 21st century.
