 This summer, SASC will be hosting its Summer Institute 2018 from Wednesday, June 13th to Sunday, June 17th. In this program, Southeast Asian high school youth will have the opportunity to participate in a five-day program at Cal in which they will engage in workshops, dialogues, and a variety of peer-bonding activities promoting higher education, cultural awareness, and other subjects.  They will also be paired with mentors who will provide guidance specific to their needs.  This all-expense paid program caters specifically to youth who are tied to the Southeast Asian refugee experience stemming from the Vietnam War.  We would like to stress that we are looking for students with diverse experiences and backgrounds, not just those with high academic performances.

Congratulations to the Arroyo High School Winter Percussion 2018! After falling to sixth place at the Fremont competition, and trailing behind Irvington High School by 10 points for most of the season, Arroyo pulled out the stops and performed their hearts out, scoring into the 80’s for the first time, taking the silver medal in the Scholastic A Division, and coming within two points of gold medalist, Irvington High School!  What a great feeling to have!

 

As an added bonus, two of our senior members received monetary awards from the California Color Guard Circuit's Scholarship program. Tommy Tran received the Sandy Montoya Memorial Scholarship, and Mikaela Gomez received the Harry Ariza memorial Scholarship!
 

 

We are very proud of our Winter Percussion. Congratulations on a tough, but delightful and exciting season!

It had been a tough competition, with Arroyo and the rest of the percussion groups competing with full shows for the first time. Still unsteady after finishing the show the day before, Arroyo Winter Percussion boosted their music caption score, but fell to 6th in the visual caption, finishing in 3rd Place of nine groups. While the Arroyo Winter Guard suffered from many individual equipment drops and placed 9th in their division.

 

We look forward to final show of the season - the CCGC Championships for the guard will be on Saturday, April 7th at Independence High School, and the winter percussion 's Championship show will be on Sunday, April 8th at Oak Grove High School. Best wishes to both groups!

Hello Dons!

We're RetroID, a group of seniors taking Mr. Doolitte's EDD class trying to create an electronic identification system for Arroyo High School.

We need to know how Arroyo feels about an electronic ID, so we created a survey for you guys to take to give our team feedback. If you could take the survey, that would be great!

Survey link: https://goo.gl/forms/uUqxBRHMzOcIC23E2
(note: you will need to log in to your school Google account; this is to prevent duplicates and "troll" data)

Thank you,
The RetroID Team

Good Afternoon Don Parents!

 

We are in need of your help and would like to ask for a few minutes of your time to take the parent survey.  The purpose of this survey is to obtain parent perceptions about the school.  I have created a cheat sheet in this email if you do not wish to click on the attachments.  One attachment is in English and the other in Spanish.


Your participation is voluntary. It is also very important. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement.

 

Please know that this is an anonymous survey. It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data. You do not have to respond to any questions that you feel could be used to identify you. Simply skip any such questions.  All questions apply to this school only.  The results are for the use of your district. The California Department of Education and WestEd will preserve data confidentiality and refer any data requests to the district.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR ACCESSING THE SURVEY
If you have more than one child at this school, you will only need to complete one survey for this school. Please fill out just one survey about the school using your oldest child as a reference.

 

Access the survey using the following URL:  https://surveys.wested.org/csps/ET326JF (just copy and paste into your browser).

 

Troubleshooting: If you are having trouble taking the survey, check the following:

* Make sure you are entering the web site address correctly.

*Does the survey welcome page show the correct name of your school?

* Make sure you have entered the URL (in the URL bar, NOT THE SEARCH BAR) and School Code correctly.

* Make sure that your survey window is open. You should be able to find the start date on this form.

* Still having trouble? Contact your survey coordinator.

Dear Students and Parents,

 

On November 8th our 9th and 11th grade students will be taking the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS).  This is largest statewide survey of resiliency, protective factors, risk behaviors, and school climate.  

 

“State law requires the parents, at a minimum, be notified of a CHKS administration and be offered the opportunity to grant or withhold consent. Passive Consent is written notice sent to parents/guardians about the survey, who in turn notify the school ONLY if they do not want their child to participate in the survey. No return from the parent or guardian allows a child to be surveyed”.  If you wish for your child to not take the survey please fill out the Passive Parent Consent form below and return it to the AP office by November 6, 2017.  

 

If you have any questions please let me know.

 

Thanks,

 

Arroyo High School

Based on over a year of planning, presentations, dialogues, and student voice, this communication is designed to inform you of the conversions and opening of a new gender-inclusive, multi-stall restroom at both San Lorenzo and Arroyo High Schools.

Please click on the attached document below to read more about the Gender-Inclusive Restrooms going in on both High School Campuses.
