The Fall College Application Workshops is a free event organized by the Stanford Vietnamese Student Association to guide high school seniors through the college application process by providing workshops that offer useful information about college applications and essay advice to students. It is a great opportunity for seniors and upperclassmen to connect with current college students to learn more about what college is like! 

 

There are a variety of workshops and activities planned throughout the event, including a panel of Stanford students sharing their college experiences and student group performances so that seniors can get a glimpse of college life. Each high school senior will be matched with a Stanford student, who will serve as a mentor to help the student with his or her college applications, personal concerns, and the transition from high school to college.

 

This free event will be held at Stanford University on Saturday, November 11 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM. The event is open to all students of different backgrounds applying to college.

 

Students interested in attending this event can find the application form at: https://goo.gl/forms/JRbCkgE9p3kO3QCi2 The deadline to apply is Tuesday, November 7th at 11:59PM, and students will be notified about whether they have been accepted by Wednesday night.

We’re excited to tell you about a new program, the De Anza College Promise, that will assist low-income students from local high schools who would like to enroll at De Anza starting fall 2018.

The promise is simple: Your first year of college is free if you qualify.
 

This program is designed to benefit students who need it the most. That means the lowest income students, including many who are undocumented and those who are aging out of the foster youth system.
 

Seniors graduating from area high schools can qualify if they are first-time college students entering De Anza with a Cal Grant in Fall 2018.
 

The De Anza College Promise provides these benefits to participating students:

  • $500 toward the cost of books and course materials
  • Payment of all required fees for the first year (excluding those already covered by the Board of Governors fee waiver)
  • Membership in the Promise Learning Community

To qualify, students must apply for a Cal Grant no later than March 2. Undocumented students can qualify under the California Dream Act. You can find more information at www.deanza.edu/outreach/de-anza-college-promise.

Want to be part of something special?  Then become part of the technical crew for this year's fall play, I DON'T HAVE A CLUE.

 

Open to all current PHHS students, learn how to build and paint sets, organize props, turn lumber into art, focus lights, create costumes, or work up in the booth as a spot light, sound or light operator. Help out in other ways such as being part of our publicity crew, or help guests feel at home by being an usher or snack shack helper. 

 

No prior experience is necessary because we will teach you what you 'll need to know.  Come to ROOM G1 and pick up a TECH CREW FORM.  

 

Due date: before end of school on Thursday, September 7th

 

For more info, see Ms. Woods in room G1.

Piedmont Hills Drama Department: Which part will YOU play?

 

 

Summary of the fall play:

When housewife Carol Robinson agrees to host a murder mystery dinner party in her home for her husband's work clients, she knows what to expect: hidden clues, guests in 1920's outfits, delicious food and even her husband Edgar faking his own "death" at just the right time during the evening to make things exciting. What she gets, however, is not what she expects, as phone lines get cut, uninvited guests creep in, a second body is found, and her youngest daughter Corky walks in with $75,000 in cash.


What's a hostess to do? Well, continue with the dinner party, of course, pretending that these are all part of the evening's festivities while trying to figure out exactly what's going on. With plot twists, mistaken identities, unexpected props,  and time running out before dessert, it's no wonder when Carol is asked about all the strange happenings, she can only tell them: "I Don't Have A Clue."

Hey all! Attached, please find a list of students chosen to attend Summer School 2017 here at Piedmont Hills.

 

There wasn't room for everyone, so I apologize if you weren't picked. Some classes have alternates. I listed five alternates in case folks chosen drop out (kind of a stand-by mode). 

 

Please email me with any questions. It's easiest to email me at my district email - DriesJ@ESUHSD.ORG - I'll get back to you soon. 

 

NEXT STEP:

I'll be delivering a paper IN CLASS to you to get signed and returned to me - just a confirmation that you plan on attending Summer School with some rules. 

 

After that, I'll be sending you your schedule with dates, times and room numbers. Look for that delivered IN CLASS in two weeks or so. 

 

Thanks!

It is time to request final transcripts on Parchment for 4-year colleges (community college and vocational schools may or may not request a transcript).  Remember that you must send an official transcript from EVERY institution you have attended.  Example-if you completed a course at Mission College, even if it appears on your PHHS transcript, you still need to send a transcript from Mission to your selected 4-year college.  Failure to send a transcript from every institution could result in your offer of admission being rescinded.  

 

READ INSTRUCTIONS BELOW CAREFULLY:

 

Make sure that you check the box that says "Hold for Grades".  If you do not, the transcript will be sent now and will be missing your final senior grades. See image below

MOTHER-DAUGHTER STEM PROGRAM

SPRING 2017

Last day to register is Friday, February 10th.

 

 

CIT – 010: Computer and Information Technology

This course is an examination of information systems in business. Students will focus on information systems, database management systems, networking, e-commerce, ethics and security, computer systems hardware and software components. Application of these concepts and methods will be through hands-on projects developing computer based solutions to business problems.

 

CIT – 020: Introduction to programming

This course is an introduction to basic computer programming concepts using both the procedural and an object-oriented paradigm. It is intended for non-computer science majors, and for students interested in COMSC 075 but would like a more gradual entry into computing fundamentals. Topics include hands-on practice with software engineering tools, simple programs, variables, control structures, functions, input/output and introduction to abstraction. Specifications, adherence to style guidelines, and the importance of testing to ensure that programs are usable, robust and modifiable, will be addressed throughout the course.

 

AJ 115 – Introduction to Forensic Science

This course covers principles, concepts, and practices of forensic science including identification, collection, comparison, and analysis of different types of physical evidence. Emphasis is placed on standard analytical techniques to identify and examine evidence such as biological fluids, ballistics, impression marks, fingerprints, hair and fibers, questioned documents, controlled substances, and explosives.   

 

BIS 002 Introduction to Project and Program Management

In this course, you will learn the definition of project management, the context of modern project management, and how to manage projects throughout the five major process groups, to gain commitment, to minimize or eliminate scope creep, to organize, to develop project teams and realistic schedules, and to efficiently close out a project. This course is designed to teach participants how to think beyond traditional project

 

BIS 004 Mastering Microsoft Project

Students will learn about Microsoft Project® as a critical tool for project management planning, tracking, decision-support, and project office support. The course content is process centric, not feature focused. This enables students to quickly and effectively apply the tool to their specific projects. This course presents practical concepts and techniques for using a commonly available, but often-misused, management tool. No software programming experience is required.

 

BIS 009 Communication & Teamwork in Project Management

This course is designed to equip students with soft skills needed for managing projects--leadership, communications, team organization and development, conflict management, quality management, and negotiating. Case studies and exercises will be used by students to explore vital aspects of project leadership such as the use of participative management to build commitment, leadership styles, organizational cultures and configurations, interpersonal skill development, project staffing, and working with distance-separated teams. Students will also gain valuable skills needed for establishing clear project goals, overcoming communication problems, writing performance reports, and managing agreements.

Jostens provides templates for your to use - if you do have access to someone who know how to use a photo editing program like PhotoShop, they can help you be more creative.  The Jostens templates limit the number of photos, but anyone can create a collage with as many photos and as much text as you choose and submit that image to be used in the space purchased.

 

FAQ’s:

Do my photos have to be the same size as the template?

No.  We have the ability to scan and resize photos as needed.

Do I have to have the exact number of words specified on a sample template?

No.  It is suggested that you stay around that number in order to keep text legible, though.

How do I indicate which photo I want to go where?

Simply write the location lightly on the back of the photo and we’ll make sure it goes there.

Do I have to type my text?

No.  You may handwrite your text, however, it may be more clear to attach a typed copy of the text you’d like to include your ad.  All writing will be recreated AS IT WAS WRITTEN, so legible writing or copies of text are preferred.

Can I submit digital photos?

Yes.  You may submit them on disc with this form.  Digital files do need to be at a resolution of at least 300 dpi, though, otherwise they will not be useable for yearbook publishing.  When scanning photos, most scanning programs have a “custom” section where you can change your resolution to at least 300.

If the yearbook doesn’t come out until the end of the year, why do I need to submit this so early?

The yearbook is created all throughout the year.  Many schools need to get pages in as early as October and need your ads to help them reach that goal.

Will I receive my photos back?

Yes.  Your photos will be kept in a safe place until your ad is created.  Your yearbook advisor will then have them available for pick up at the end of the year.

Will my ad be the same size as the sample ad?

No.  The sample ads created here are for reference only.  Your ad will look like it, but will reflect the size of the ad you purchased.
