Principal's Message

Principal’s Message – 4th Quarter

As we enter the 4th Quarter we’d like to remind our students to keep an open mindset to achieve to the best of their ability. We hope that each and every student understands and appreciates the opportunity of a public education as they ponder life after high school. For those students that have a need to retake a course due to a failed grade or even a “D”, there will be a summer school option. Summer school will run from June 25th through July 27th. Parents can sign their child up for summer school now, and keep in mind that if your child has failed a course or it looks like they may be failing any current courses, summer school is a must. Your counselor will review your child’s transcript to determine the courses your child will need to take for summer school. If you have any questions, please reach out to your counselor for guidance, and be proactive with your child if they have failed a course to prevent your child from becoming credit deficient and in jeopardy of being a non-grad. If your child would like to advance themselves and take one less course during the academic year, they can take a course for enrichment (Spanish 1/2 or Drawing and Painting) for 10 original credits. They can meet their A-G requirement for the Drawing and Painting and shoot for the opportunity to take advanced level Spanish for the California Seal of Bi-literacy, which always is a plus when applying to a college.

 

Measure E is coming to Lakewood beginning this June 2018. We will be the first of the large comprehensive high school to have the HVAC/Modernization project. The project will provide the following to each classroom:

  • Air Conditioning
  • Ceiling mounted LCD projector
  • New windows (as needed)
  • New window coverings (as needed)
  • New carpet or tile flooring (as needed)
  • New energy conserving lighting
  • Updated ceiling tiles (as needed)
  • Room painted
  • Teacher’s wireless audio system with wireless microphone for instructing students

 

“As needed” means replacement will occur depending on the current condition of the item.

The project will begin with the 200 Building.

 

There will be quite a bit construction over the next 24 months and we ask for your flexibility and patience in advance of the project. In the words of a construction site, please “pardon our dust”. We will keep you apprised over our progress with this project and our district’s effort to provide the optimal learning environment for our students.

 

Our 11th grade students will be participating in high stakes “SBAC Testing” this May and through June. The testing is critical for our 11th grade students as it will count toward a student’s Language Arts and Math for the Early Assessment Program. This will exempt a student from taking remediation (make-up) courses if attending the California State University and California Community College systems. This could save a family hundreds of dollars and provide a student extra time to attempt other courses in college. In addition, students who are enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) courses will be testing May 7th through 18th. Again, we surpassed last year’s exam total and we have the highest number of exams ever given at Lakewood High School. We are very proud of our students as they reach for the rigors of the AP coursework.

 

 

Please mark your calendars for our annual Open House, on Wednesday, May 23rd, and more information will come as we get closer to the date.

 

That’s all for now, and remember, to “keep it good in the Wood”.
