Note from the Principal
Shortly after returning from Winter Break, McBride will be hosting a parent/student workshop designed to discuss PSAT results and help families utilize resources to prepare for college entrance exams. Flyers will be sent home to all 10th graders with details.
Fall Semester Closure
On January 29 the first semester of the 2014-15 school year comes to a close. It is hard to believe we are nearing the halfway point of the school year. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the entire McBride family and look forward to a wonderful second half of the year.
Students need to focus on finishing strong the last few weeks of the semester. Our teachers have been working tirelessly to ensure students find success and have chances to improve their grades. Please know not all assignments can be submitted late and that late submissions usually do not receive full credit. Students need to place an emphasis on assignments they can still submit for credit and meeting all future deadlines for work submission. During winter break please encourage your students to finish any late work they are still able to submit. In most cases all work will need to be turned into their teachers prior to finals. Please check School Loop for individual teachers work submissions deadlines.
Fall Semester Finals - January 26-28 (Finals for 7th period take place the week before)
Our sophomore students experienced finals for the first time last school year and understand it is not the type of exam your can study the night before and be successful. Our freshman will experience this for the first time and need to understand the importance of studying now. The Winter Break provides a great opportunity to do so. Students should review the semester’s work from each class in anticipation of finals. Teachers will be providing course specific study guides and more exam information to students when we return. Studying early and often is the best way to maximize results.

McBride High School Accepts Rachel’s Challenge
On Wednesday, January 14, the entire McBride family had the opportunity to hear the amazing story of Rachel Scott (the first victim in the Columbine High School Shooting) and the impact her example of kindness has had on the world. Students found the presentation moving and agreed to keep the momentum going by forming the Friends of Rachel Club. The clubs goal is to make our campus a better place because our campus chooses to be kind and considerate to all students.
McBride High School students, parents and staff chose to accept the challenges laid out by Rachel’s Challenge. By signing the pledge our school chose to: look for the best in others; dream big and set goals; choose positive influences; speak with kindness; and start our own chain reaction. Students and staff alike are excited to live out the challenge laid before us and make McBride High School an even better place to learn and grow.

Important Information For Students Who Ride Long Beach Transit (Información Importante Para Los Estudiantes Que Viajan En Long Beach Transit)
Good attendance is one of the major factors for student success in school. Maintaining good attendance school wide also helps our district maximize their Average Daily Attendance (ADA) funding. School districts receive the largest portion of their operational funding based on attendance. If we can meet our attendance rate target of 95.41% our site will receive a check from the district to be used to support school wide activities such as field trips, campus events, etc. Below are a few suggestions on how you can help McBride exceed our targets and help the students succeed in the classroom.
1. Please be sure students clear absences the day they return to school. Absences are cleared when the student or parent/guardian submit a note to the main office indicating the date(s) and reason for the absence.
2. Understand the state only recognizes illness, doctor’s appointments, court appearances, and death of an immediate family member as excused absences. All other reasons have to be marked as unexcused.
3. Because we do not get funding credit for unexcused absences please avoid missing school for vacations and trips.
4. Students must see their teachers immediately following an absence to obtain make-up work.
5. Please inform the main office if a student will be out of school for multiple days. Student’s should also communicate with their teachers via School Loop to get make-up work.
Three Pathways- One Vision
Three Pathways- One Vision
McBride High School has three pathways, McBride Engineering, McBride Health Medical and McBride Public Services-Forensics. All three pathways engage students around their interests, find relevant connections to real world activities, and gauge student learning through collaborative, hands-on projects. All three pathways prepare students for the demands of college and the workforce. With workplace learning experiences in their 12th grade year, all three pathways empower and inspire students to make their own path and determine their own future.
A Unique Experience
McBride High School looks and feels different than any other high school you may have seen. With four career labs and other specialized spaces students will demonstrate what they have learned through projects, team collaboration and connections with industry partners. Students will collaborate in open areas designed for each pathway. Teachers will also work as a team to meet the needs of individual students and create a coherent educational experience. Addressing subjects at each grade level and centered on a career-themed course, students will see the natural connections between the theme of their pathway and English, History, Science and Math.
All three McBride pathways are focused on completing the UC and CSU Entrance Requirements (a-g) with a sequence of courses that are aligned to college expectations. Each pathway expects to create options for students to earn college credits while in high school.
