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.

Best Regards,

Joe Alvarez
Principal 
College Park HS

200 Volunteers needed for Grad Nite 2017

Did you know it takes more than 200 volunteers to make Grad Nite a success? Whether  you have a senior, junior, sophomore or freshman, helping at Grad Nite is a great way to support our school community and create a safe event for our Seniors on graduation night.

Help is needed all day Fri., June 2, Sat., June 3 and Sun., Jun 4 to decorate the Centre Concord from floor to ceiling. In addition, about 100 people are needed on the day of the event itself, Tues., June 6.  Sign up today by clicking here. For questions, contact Kalene Gomez or Kim Ban
 

Food Co-chair needed for Grad Nite!

The Grad Nite committee is looking for a volunteer who is able to help the Food Chair for this year's Grad Nite. An underclass parent (or two!)  is needed to help make this event successful.  This individual will need to be present while the Food Chair is at the graduation ceremony so it should not be a senior parent. 

Ideally, this individual would take over the Food Chair position for next year's Grad Nite. If you are interested in helping out, would like to learn more about the position or know of someone who would be interested, please contact Jennifer Tipton. Thank you for your help--Grad Nite can't succeed without it!

Steve Nixon Memorial Scholarship

                Steve Nixon was a teacher and then a Vice Principal at College Park for over 20 years. Steve embodied fairness, personal improvement, higher education and was a team player. Steve would work with us to make good things happen for the students and staff of College Park. He wanted to get to know people so that he could work with their strengths. Steve considered each person an individual and students a work-in progress.  He would never give up on any student, and would help them become the best possible individual. Steve truly believed that students and their successes were why we came to work each day. Steve cared about students, parents, and staff, then pushed each to excel and was supportive in each of our situations. He was also known for giving compliments at just the right moment, which showed just how much he cared. He made a difference in so many students’ lives.

 

Selection Criteria will be based on an essay application. 

To apply: Write a short essay on one or more of the following:

  • How have you shown resiliency and perseverance in your life?
  • What have you done to improve College Park?
  • How have you overcome obstacles?
  • Why is higher education important to you?

The purpose of the $500 scholarship is to help fund a student’s higher education in Steve’s memory.  Students whom fit the criteria can submit their essay application to Ms. Baker, Ms. Vietor or Ms. Jones at College Park.

 

The application deadline for students will be Friday, April 14, 2017.

 

If you have any questions about the scholarship please email Coach Jones at jonessw@mdusd.org .
