Friday High School Announcement

Reflection
Today, there is an international Youth Climate Strike meant to raise awareness of climate change and to encourage political action to address it. This week, we're reflecting on climate change in general as well as what we can do as individuals, as a society, and as a school, especially in light of our Sacred Heart heritage. The links below lead to several relevant resources and will remain available throughout the week:
-- A short explanation of the Youth Climate Strike;
-- An award-winning video on climate change by Alliza Manayan ('21);
-- An another award-winning video on the same theme by Edward Emery ('17);
-- A final short video of youth climate activist Greta Thunberg addressing the French National Assembly.

Mass of the Holy Spirit
Thank you for your participation in yesterday's Mass. May the Holy Spirit inspire you to learn, grow, and achieve this school year.

Homecoming Spirit
There is themed dress every day this week in our build-up to homecoming. Here are the details:
-- Today: School spirit day, when you can break out all your Convent and Stuart Hall swag.

Remember that you may of course come in the normal dress code if the theme isn't for you. The handbook specifies that certain elements of dress are not allowed at school, even on themed or casual dress days:
--Sleeveless tank tops or crop tops
--Leggings without a dress uniform skirt
--Camouflage
--Clothing that reveals the underwear
--Athletic shorts or swimwear
--Non-dress uniform skirts
--Open-toed shoes, including flip-flops, sandals and slippers
--Sheer, torn or ripped clothing
--Hooded sweatshirts with the hood up
--Hats that obscure the face (no baseball caps)

Finally, the homecoming week culminates with a series of athletic and social events that are intended to bring our community together at the beginning of the school year:
--The volleyball program squares off with the Urban School in three matches tonight; the frosh-soph team plays at 3:30, the junior varsity at 4:30, and the varsity at 5:30 p.m.;
--The homecoming dance is also tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Little Theater on Broadway. The cost is $15 at the door. Attend the varsity volleyball game and receive a $5 discount (for a $10 ticket price);
--The football team faces Upper Lake at Kezar Stadium at 6 p.m. tomorrow.

School Spirit Online Store
Check out our new, online spirit gear store at this link. While your order probably won't arrive by this Friday, you and your parents can still get outfitted for spirited events later this year.

Schedule Reminders
Today, we have five classes and no chapel or assembly:
--Period H - 8-9:05 a.m.
--Period A - 9:25-10:30 a.m.
--Period B - 10:50-11:55 a.m.
--Period C/lunch - 12:10-1:35 p.m.
--The early edition of period C begins at 12:10 and ends at 1:15 p.m.; the late edition of period C begins at 12:30 and ends at 1:35 p.m.
--Period D - 1:55-3 p.m.

Off-Campus Privileges
As a reminder, students generally may not leave campus during the school day, including during study periods. On this point, the Student-Parent Handbook reads:

Students generally have an unscheduled academic period on their schedule. This period is considered a study period; it is not considered a “free” period. Freshmen and sophomores must stay on campus during their study period. Juniors and seniors may sign out for a pass to leave campus briefly (for example to grab a snack from a local store) and are expected to sign back in on their return. In the interest of student safety and community, students should be present on campus during class and study periods. Students who happen to have a study period at the beginning or end of the day are nevertheless expected to be on campus and should not expect to stay or return home.

Students may leave campus during lunch, provided that they sign out and back in at the front desk.

Enrolling in MobileServe
Update: As of Friday, September 13, students need to belong to their advisory suborg only. All class suborgs have been deleted. The accompanying video will be updated soon...

Our school keeps track of community service through an online platform known as MobileServe. MobileServe is easy to sign up for and convenient to use. Students are responsible for recording their service activities to MobileServe. If you do not have an account and/or you need to update your advisory group, please watch this video. If you have any questions, email or see Mr. O'Connor.

Expectations for Homecoming Week
Our eight-day homecoming celebration kicked off last Friday. This week is going to be full of fun activities and time together as a community. We want to make sure we're representing ourselves well and being safe at these events. The Student-Parent Handbook, which is linked here, outlines expectations around student conduct at school events, like a sports contest or the homecoming dance. The most relevant sections for homecoming include the statement of general expectations on pages 16 and 17 as well as the intoxicating substances policy on page 21. Today in advisory, you'll have a chance to discuss these expectations with your advisor.

Service
Reading Partners was on the Pine/Octavia campus on Tuesday, September 17, during lunch to answer any questions you may have about being part of this excellent service opportunity. Thanks to all those who signed up. They will on the Broadway campus on Thursday, October 3 during lunch. Follow up with Bryan Maruyama and Owen Akel if you're interested.

If you're interested in tutoring as a service after school, please be sure to fill out this survey created by Owen Akel and Bryan Maruyama who are coordinating tutors with a variety of programs. We are happy to have students now serving at the Tenderloin After School Program. We are looking for tutors for the Redding After School Program and for the Beacon Center. Please fill out the survey if interested. 

This Saturday, September 21, is Coastal Cleanup. We will not be leading a group this year but all are encouraged to sign up with any of the many groups serving throughout the Bay Area. Please see this link.

Ceramics Open Studio
Get your hands dirty learning hand building and wheel throwing techniques! Hosted by Dr. Popplewell in the Octavia Street art studio on Thursdays, September 26-December 12, 3-5 p.m.

College Visits
College visits are in full swing. Be sure to check out the college counseling calendar on the school website, or Naviance, for upcoming visits to Broadway and Pine/Octavia. Please review college visit instructions for details on signing up, college hosts, etc. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to the College Counseling team!
