|Please note the upcoming temporary schedule changes for College Park:
Senior Lunch will take place at Boomers in Livermore on March 10, 2017 from 9:00am –2:40pm.
|Mt. Diablo Unified School District is pleased to announce the creation of an innovative new program to honor high school students who sustain involvement in creative arts courses.
Students who maintain a minimum GPA throughout three consecutive years of arts courses are eligible for the MDUSD Creative Arts Honor Roll, which will be a significant asset for college and scholarship applications. Students who maintain a minimum GPA throughout four consecutive years of arts courses will receive an honor cord for graduation.
Qualifying seniors may receive an application form from their visual or performing arts teacher. The deadline to apply is March 15. Read about the program details by clicking here.
|The Math Department needs volunteers for our annual Math Field Day (in honor of Pi Day) taking place on Fri., Mar. 24 during the school day.
The math teachers have developed stations at which students will calculate area, circumference, slope, estimate volume and calculate geometric probability. We will even have a contest to see who can recite the most digits of pi. Concepts will be explored using bubbles, basketballs, a trebuchet, marshmallows, and even a giant pizza! Students will be attending only during their math classes as directed by their own math teachers.
We need parent volunteers to help with the stations, coordinate the desserts (students must find volume before consuming) and more. (Math/science background is not required for volunteers.) Please click here to sign up.
Questions? Please contact Kathleen Strange at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|In cooperation with State Board of Education requirements for districts and schools to collect data with regard to school climate and parent engagement, College Park High School and other MDUSD schools will be inviting parents to participate in a school climate survey.
The information you provide will help guide efforts by the school and district to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement. More information on these efforts can be found at MDUSD.org. Please click the link below to take the survey.

College Park High School
Home of the Falcons!
|Dear College Park Community,
I would like to commend you, our families, as we continue to have the best students in the district! Each and every day I am in awe of the quality of our student body, and I am sure this is what our WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) visiting committee will see as well.
As a reminder, our WASC visit will be March 26-29. We have submitted our self-study to the WASC Commission and have received positive initial feedback from our WASC Chairperson. This is a fluid document--after the visiting committee has completed their visit, we will have an opportunity to revise our action plan to reflect our strategy to address their feedback and recommendations.
There is absolutely no reason to think or feel that we will not be continuing as a fully accredited high school. I thank you for your continued support and if you should have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.
