Welcome back to school! SUSD campuses had a terrific opening of school last week and by now students are down to their studies. While a number of elementary schools held their back-to-school nights the day before school started or last week, most are scheduled these last two weeks of August. Please see the K-8 schedule and/or the 9-12 schedule to find out when your school is hosting back-to-school.
These events are important to you and your students. You will hear about school rules, expectations and testing results from last year. You will also get an opportunity to meet your student’s teacher(s) and talk about the work expected this year, putting you and your student on the same page for understanding class requirements.
Our principals and teachers have done a lot of work to make the back-to-school nights meaningful and successful for students and parents. Please take advantage of this opportunity and attend!
For more information contact your school.
More than 100 incoming eighth and ninth graders spent their summer vacation “catching math” at SUSD’s algebra and geometry prep program at the University of the Pacific in June and July. This year 75 eighth graders studied algebra concepts to get ready for high school math classes, while another 40 ninth graders prepared for geometry. Classes were held in the UOP Math Department classrooms. For the program graduation, parents were invited into the classrooms to see the work accomplished.
Stockton Unified School District will begin the 2015-2016 school year on August 11, 2015. To be sure that the transition into the new school year goes smoothly, SUSD has created a list of to-dos for parents:
- Register your child for school. If your child is not yet registered, please contact the main office of the school nearest you for assistance. You may also contact the Educational Services Department for school enrollment assistance at (209)933-7040.
- Confirm that your child’s immunizations are up-to-date. For questions about immunization requirements, please contact the SUSD Health Services Department at (209)933-7060.
More than 2,000 high school seniors graduated from SUSD high schools this month, with most moving now to college, some into the military forces and others to work. The festivities were beautiful, with students celebrating their accomplishments with family and friends during graduation ceremonies at the Stockton Arena, the University of the Pacific, Atherton Auditorium or at their high school campus.
