Our Technology Coaches on campus (aka teachers Abby Santana, Jeff Jackson, and Geoffrey Aronsky) have begun to hold “Tech Tuesdays” during lunch for staff members to meet and learn about new software and collaborate on technology in general. This week teachers were invited to stop by and learn about Google Classroom. They went over creating a class, basic design, creating assignments and announcements.

Our counselors have been going out to all of our feeder schools this week, talking to the 8th grade students about enrollment. They have brought Enrollment Packets to give to each 8th grade student to take home and fill out with their parents. Extra Enrollment Packets are being left at each feeder school’s main office as well. Students have had the opportunity to ask questions and gather information from our counselors.
Visit from Art Institute of California
David visited from the Art Institute of California recently. He spoke to our CAD/Architecture class and our Art classes, discussing and showing students the degrees students could pursue. He also showed them the designs, art and projects students are working on now in Graphic Design, Interior Design, Set & Exhibit Design, Industrial Design, as well as Video Game Design & Art and Culinary.
We are articulated with Art Institute, and students can transfer class credit from ACHS to their school. Our students were engaged, asked questions, and a few filled out “More Information” Cards.
