Note from the Principal
I hope each of you has a wonderful and restful summer. Students worked very hard this semester and deserve the break. Please take the time to volunteer in your community, research college options, explore career opportunities, get a job, and/or work on your summer assignments. I look forward to seeing you at Summer Bridge and in the fall.
Students who plan to work in the summer need to obtain a work permit. This is a two-step process that involves completing an application that is signed by the student, parent, employer, and district representative. Once that form is completed, it is returned so that an official permit can be issued. Unfortunately tomorrow, June 24 is the last day to complete the process at McBride because our offices will be closed for the summer. Beginning on Friday, June 26, students may go the High School Office located in the Board of Education Building (1515 Hughes Way, Long Beach, CA 90810) to obtain necessary paperwork and complete the process. The high school office will be able to help you with your application and issue you a work permit.
Community Service Opportunity
Food Finders is an organization that collects and delivers food and provides other support to the neediest families in Long Beach. They are always in need of volunteer support. There are many ways to lend a hand including supporting deliveries, assisting in clothing drives, and collecting non-perishable items for families. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Diana Lara at 562-283-1400 ext. 101 for more details. You can also visit there location at 3744 Industry Ave Suite 401, Lakewood, CA.
Please remember Summer Bridge takes place August 5-7. While not mandatory it is highly recommended students attend. It should be a rewarding experience for students and teachers alike.

2015 Summer Bridge Program
McBride High School is very excited to deliver the Summer Bridge Program. We feel it will provide students a glimpse into their expectations and help ease some of the nervousness and concern students (and parents) experience as they make the transition to the next grade level.
Where: McBride High School
When: August 5 through the 7
Attendance: Although students are not mandated to attend, we strongly encourage all students to do so. We would like students to attend the full week but will allow students to attend part of the week if they have prior commitments. Students must remain on campus for the entire day. If they need to leave early for any reason, a parent may check them out in the main office.
Download Your Application & email ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org and Mr. Rockenbach will inform you if space is available.

District Summer School
If you pre-registered for summer school, you will be able to view your summer school schedule through ParentVue/StudentVue beginning Monday, June 22. Pre-registered students should report to their assigned school the first day of summer school to obtain an official copy of their schedule. Below is an overview of the summer school dates and times. Students who do not attend the first day will be dropped from their classes. If you need to add summer school because of second semester grades, please refer to your home school website and/or contact the school directly to obtain information about their process for adding. If you have questions on if you need to add summer school courses please feel free to reach out to me directly and I can provide guidance.

SUMMER SCHOOL DATES AND HOURS
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 Criminal Justice and Investigation. 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.
