What do a bilingual instructional assistant, a typist 2 clerk, a community service officer, a office manager, a senior office administrator, a food services aide, a data entry clerk, and a custodian have in common? A love and dedication for West Contra Costa Unified School District students and staff and the District’s 2016-17 Classified Employees of the Year.
More than 100 special needs students from Crespi, DeJean, Hercules, Korematsu, and Pinole middle schools, and De Anza, El Cerrito, Hercules, Kennedy high schools and Transition school participated in a morning of basketball and celebration.
Righteous has three definitions according to Merriam-Webster. And if Korematsu’s Ghouran Chang used it in a sentence, it might go something like this: I capped a righteous win at the West Contra Costa County Unified School District Middle School Spelling Bee by correctly spelling the two-syllable adjective.
Hello, Junior Titan Families,
This is Renee Lama with a school update. There is no school on Monday for students. Classes will resume on Tuesday morning beginning at 8:25. September was a great month for attendance; we reached the highest percentage of daily attendance for the past four years. Keep it up, remember, every day counts.
This upcoming school week will focus on preparing ourselves to have the best possible future.
Wednesday, 8th-grade students will take the PSAT 8/9. The PSAT is a low-stress test that allows students to practice their college readiness test-taking skills, gives high school Advanced Placement readiness data, and helps with college and career planning. Students will be notified on Tuesday where to report. Site supervisors will also have this information. Make sure students are well rested and have a hearty breakfast. Breakfast is served here in our cafeteria beginning at 7:45. We will have a breakfast available, free of charge, for every 8th-grade student. Please be sure students arrive on time and prepared to give their best performance. If you have any questions about this test, please contact Mr. Shaw.
Since this is an opportunity to promote a college-going culture, students, parents, and staff are encouraged to wear college gear including hats.
We will have our first dance on Halloween, October 31. The dance will be after school. If you are available to volunteer, please contact the main office and ask for Ms. Chen.
Thank you, everyone, Have a wonderful day and stay Titan Strong.
