CJSF Membership Deadline
Attention 8th graders: It’s time to apply for CJSF. Using your grades from 4th quarter of last year, you need 10 points when A’s are worth 3 points and B’s are worth 1. If you earned a B in an accelerated class, that would be worth 2 points. Remember that PE doesn’t count in the totals. If you have ten points, find the application on our website, print it and fill it out. Complete your community service requirement and attach your letter. Then attach your report card and turn it in to Mr. Simms in room 16, Ms. E-L in room 21, or Mr. Smiley in room 22. You have until Friday, September 12th.

"The D.C. Trip"
As you may have heard by now, I am no longer at Aptos Junior High. I have taken the position of principal at Mar Vista Elementary School. Even though I am not at Aptos Junior High, I WILL be taking the Aptos Junior High students on our annual 8th trip this year, November 8 through November 14 to Washington DC/New York. It is of the utmost importance that students and parents pay attention to the dates posted below. Since I am not on campus, it will be very difficult to track down forms which need to be turned into the Aptos Junior High office. Not receiving all of the forms on time could jeopardies a student's participation in the trip.
The following are IMPORTANT/MANDATORY DATES to remember:
Tuesday September 9 Students will be given the Roommate selection’s forms. Students can’t be part of this process if they are not paid in full.
Friday September 12 is the last day for students to turn in roommate forms. Mr. D will select student’s roommates if forms at not turned in.
Tuesday September 30 MANDATORY Parent/Student meeting in the gym at 6:00pm. Very important paperwork will be distributed at this meeting. Parents and students must attend.
Friday October 3 Information distributed at the parent/student meeting on Tuesday, September 30 must be returned to the office.
Friday October 24 MANDATORY STUDENT MEETING with Mr. D to go over the specifics of the trip. The meeting will begin at 3:15 and conclude at 4:30.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me atRichard_determan@pvusd.net
Thank you. I am looking forward to this trip and spending this time with your student. I hope you are all having a great start to the new school year.
Principal, Mar Vista Elementary School
