Helping the Chula Vista Humane Society

Did you know that most kittens and puppies are born during the spring and summer months? Unfortunately, many are born in the shelters. The caring staff at the Chula Vista Humane Society wrap the newborns, their mothers, injured animals and post-surgery animals in blankets for warmth and comfort. After each use, towels and blankets must be sanitized and bleached and wear out quickly. If you have any unwanted towels or blankets, please consider donating them. There will be a donation box in the main office, room 608 and room 609. Donations will be accepted until May 25th.

Google visits OHS!

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.

Do not jeopardize the opportunity to be in the picture by wearing something inappropriate or being taken out of the picture due to uncooperative behavior. 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.

· ALL 9th, 10th, and 11th graders will report to their regular period 4 class. Since it is College Day, please wear a college t-shirt to school! We are on a modified day schedule with student lunch time at the end of the day from 11:30 – 12:00. There will be no nutrition break. The inside cafeteria lines will be open on Wednesday morning from 7:15 to 7:25 before school if you want to get something to eat before the day starts. Please let your parents know that you will be released early on Wednesday. Buses will depart school at 12:00.

· 9th graders need to bring your laptops fully charged! You will be listening to a presentation in the MPR and then doing a career survey online.

· 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!
