Second-semester schedules: Your ST is building your schedule. If you DO NOT need any changes, your schedule will stay the same.


Tips for completing your first semester:

Prioritize Assignments that Matter the Most

It's a mistake to consider all of your assignments equal if you do better in one subject than another. Some students think that they should commit equal time to study for each assignment. Commit the time where you need it most.


Study Guides are your Friends

Learn to take notes in class


Learn how YOU study Best

Everyone learns differently. Just because your friend makes color-coded outlines, it doesn't mean that's the best way for you to study. Use Mnemonics. Make Flashcards. Study the way that works best for you.


Remove Distractions

Music may help you study, so turn it on if that’s what works for you.  But turn off the TV and TURN OFF YOUR PHONE!  If you can’t live without it for more than an hour, turn it off and check it when you take a break.  Remove yourself from other humans, unless they are studying with you. Don’t study with another human who is distracting or doesn’t take studying as seriously as you do. That isn't studying, it's wasting your precious time.


Multi-Tasking is a Myth

If you think you can study while also doing other things, you can't. Research shows that multi-tasking is truly a myth. Doing two things at once doesn't save time. It just makes you less successful at both things. If you are more interested in learning this sad fact that many people cannot accept, you can read about it here: Multi-tasking is a Myth.


Take Breaks

When you study, your brain consumes glucose. Take a five-minute break every hour to let your body produce more fuel for your studying. Take a walk, have a healthy snack and stretch. Taking breaks will actually improve your studying.


Know when to Stop Studying

The likelihood is much higher that you're going to stress yourself out and confuse yourself.


Get Some Sleep and Eat Breakfast.

Eight hours is an ideal sleep period for teens. It may be tempting to stay up late, but remember that you are going to need energy and focus for your class/assignments. So Sleep and then Eat.  Bonus: these are two of everybody’s favorite things to do.


Energize yourself Naturally in the Morning

Do something stimulating the morning of school: Make pancakes, take your dog for a walk, or get some exercise. Do something that's going to make you feel alive and positive and will build up your energy level and confidence.


Be Careful with Caffeine and Avoid Energy Drinks the Morning of school

The biggest mistake people make before school. Overstimulation will make your hands shake, your brain rattle, and your attention span disappears. And there is a good chance you will simply crash in the middle of the morning.


Relax and Breathe!

Inhale through your nose and picture that breath going to the top of your head.  Exhale through your mouth and picture that breath coming out your belly button.

It may be a little weird, but it works!




'Tis the Season - for the FLU!

Below is a message from our District Nurse Sarah Dahlen regarding Cold and Flu season. There is a detailed letter regarding influenza and its dangers attached to this email.


We do want all students at school when they can be here, but if someone has the flu, they need to stay home and be properly cared for.

Need Someone to Talk to? California Launches Mental Health Hotline for Calls or Instant Messaging


California residents in need of non-emergency emotional help can now call or instant message people at a hotline that debuted statewide Monday, just ahead of World Mental Health Day. The California Peer-Run Warm Line, available at 

1-855-845-7415 will be staffed for most of the day to start. It's deliberately called a "warm line" because it's supposed to arrange for help before the situation raises to a "hotline" level. 


The free service offers non-emergency emotional support and referrals to anyone who calls or messages the number 1-855-845-7415. It will be staffed from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Saturdays, and 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sundays. The goal is to have 24/7 service by the end of the year.
