Google Visits Olympian High School!

 

On October 10, 2017, five Google employees came to Olympian High and spoke to 18 Girls Who Code members.  Carrie D’Ascoli introduced her team peers to the club:  Ariel Yin, Yanting Zhang, Michael Schwartz  and ​Blair Kutzman.  They introduced themselves and talked about their backgrounds as well as how they got started at Google.  One engineer asked the girls why they joined the Girls Who Code club.  One girl, said since she was a little girl she always wanted to work at Google.  She was fascinated at how innovative Google is.  Carrie also talked about “being googley”, which she defined as being honest, transparent, and accepting of others, always doing the right thing, and putting the user first.  The team offered to come back in the future to see the projects they are working on.

Seniors will be dismissed after the picture ONLY IF you bring in a signed parent permission slip that you will be job shadowing, doing community service, or visiting a college campus. The PERMISSION SLIP has been emailed out to 12th graders. See Mr. Patterson if you have any questions on this.

Please let your parents know that you will be released early on Wednesday. Buses will depart school at 12:00.

· 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT test. You may or may not be with your Period 4 teacher, but report there first for attendance. Students will receive a pass if they will be taking the test with another teacher. Please bring No. 2 pencils, a 4-function calculator, and a book to read when you are finished with the test. Students will have to place their backpacks in a separate area in the classroom. No cell phones will be allowed on your person during the test. Please make sure to eat a good breakfast and get plenty of rest the night before. There is no penalty for guessing, so please try your best! You may be eligible for scholarships based on your score!

2017-18 School Year

2017-2018 School Year

 

Welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year.  The first day of school for registered students is Thursday, July 20th.

Class schedules will be distributed on the first day of school.  Students will have the opportunity to verify course selections during Freshmen Orientation (July 13th) and Gear Day for 10th-12th Graders (July 14th).  The last day to request course changes was Friday, June 2nd, provided space availability and placement guidelines.  All course request changes at this time are contingent on course availability and master schedule needs.

We are unable to make individual appointments, however, students/parents have these opportunities to stop in with questions.

Counselors will be available on the following dates before the Opening of School:

Thursday, July 13th     9:00 – 3:00      (9th Graders- Freshmen Orientation)

Friday, July 14th          8:00 – 3:00      (10th – 12th Graders – Gear Day)

*We are unable to honor requests for specific teachers, class periods, and other preferences. Counselors will work to balance class sizes to ensure productive learning environments and to meet teacher contractual limits. The addition or closure of classes may be necessary with changes in enrollment or staffing.

Because counselors cannot respond to every inquiry regarding class schedules, after July 14th students can view their course listing in binders located in the front office.

REMINDER – SUMMER Advanced Placement (AP) ASSIGNMENTS

Most Advanced Placement courses require summer assignments. Please check the AP summer coursework page.  If a text is required, students can borrow a book from the library on July 11th-12th from 8:00 to 2:00 pm.  It is the student’s responsibility to ensure summer coursework is completed by July 20th.
