Attached is the spreadsheet of hours that I have received up to this point. If you have hours you have not turned in, you need to do so, to N248, BEFORE school only (and never during class time--you should be in class). 

 

SENIORS, remember you need to have at least TWO of your twenty hours during your senior year if you want to walk at the front of graduation with your CSF Life or 100% membership. Having over 20 hours, but only one during senior year will not qualify you for the front of the class honors. Seniors, you have until March 24th to complete your hours for senior year. This deadline has been set since the beginning of the year. Good luck!

Rop ArchMost people think you need to attend a college or university to take courses in architecture. In Upland, however, you need look no further than Upland High School. In fact, students in the architecture program at UHS have won architectural design awards on the national level. Just last year, John Acayan, a senior, won first place in the nation for his design and development of a Dollar Tree store. John was accepted as a freshman into Cal Poly Pomona’s architecture program upon graduation from UHS. In 2010, senior Taylor Sealey won first place in the nation for her design of a children’s library. Taylor is now working as a Planner for Southern California Edison Company. These are the only two students from California who have placed nationally in the last 20 years. Other notable UHS graduates are Jessica Gitney (2004) a Product Developer for Kohl’s Department Stores, Valerie Schroeder (2004), Construction Office Operations Manager for REIG Construction, and Matias Cena (2006) who is now a Design Architect for Disney Imagineering.

The architecture classes taught by Mr. Brooks are courses offered in the Academy of Engineering and Architecture, one of the career pathways offered at Upland High School.

SATURDAY SCHOOL:

 

Saturday School is conducted almost every Saturday for the purpose of making up unexcused absences, ditching, tardies and for violating minor school infractions. This method is provided as an alternative to suspension. Limits may be imposed on the number of times a student is assigned. The class is conducted from 8:00–12:00. Students must report to the front of the library (unless otherwise indicated) before 8:00 a.m., or they may not be admitted. After meeting at the library, students are escorted to a classroom for the day or remain in the library (depending on space availability). Students who do not have any work with them to complete will utilize our APEX learning tutorial module. Apex is designed to assist students in strengthening their skills in subject areas such as Math, English, Science and History. There is a pre and post test to demonstrate that the student has mastered the subject area and also be proof of positive attendance. Disruptive students will be asked to leave and will not receive credit for attendance. Failure to show for an assigned Saturday School indicates the student has opted to receive a day of suspension, which may be assigned as an in-school suspension (ISS) or an at-home suspension. Students are not allowed to leave the building during the break. Breakfast is usually served between 0930-1000 in the cafeteria.

 

All students are responsible for keeping track of their Saturday School assignments; however the Discipline Office will post them on your school loop on a recurring basis. If you are still unsure, please feel free to e-mail- Colleen Rodriguez at Colleen_Rodriguez@upland.k12.ca.us.
