As the school year begins, students at Mission may be stressing about SAT’s, PSAT’s, or our grades. However, those living in poverty are forced to worry about the things that we take for granted. Thus, Himanshu and I (juniors) are running a drive which will consist of clothes and canned food, and students are free to donate anything falling in said categories. The drive will be occurring for the following two weeks from October 14 to October 25, with boxes placed in the office, the L2 room (N7), the Student Store, and the bell tower quad. We look forward to seeing all the donations, and thank you in advance for your support!

 

Senior Dhruv Batra isconducting a toy drive to help low-income children in the Bay Area. In this project, he will be collecting educational toys and distributing them to children in need with the help of Sunday Friends, a non-profit organization that helps underprivileged families through educational means. 

 

Most people have shelves full of games that they never use, and these educational toys could be put to better use in the hands of children that need it. If you have any educational games that you are willing to donate, please give them to me or drop them off in the collection boxes at any one of the following locations: Fremont Main Library, Mission United Methodist Church, Hopkins Junior High, or Mission San Jose High. The drive will end on October 19th, so please donate as soon as possible.

 

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS TAKING AP EXAMS IN MAY 2020

Collegeboard has changed the process for signing up for exams. The tests will still be in May and you still must pay and sign up on Totalregistration.net

Signups are scheduled to begin Wednesday October 2 at 3:10 pm and will close Friday October 25th at 10 pm. The sign up link is  www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/050970.

The cost for most exams is $110.00. The language and music tests are $140.00

The Chinese and Japanese exams sign ups will automatically be waitlisted and priority will be given to students enrolled in MSJHS class. Other students in district  approved programs will be accepted as long as space is provided.

Due to new procedures by CollegeBoard,  students must have an active CollegeBoard account, entered an active join code for their AP course on their CollegeBoard account, and register and pay for tests on Total Registration. The student is not considered signed up to take the AP exam if the student is NOT on both lists.

If a student is NOT properly registered on BOTH websites, they may incur a $50.00 late fee.

For the students that wish to take an exam only/independent study/self study exam, they must register and pay on Total Registration first. Once they have registered and paid on Total Registration, students will  get the join code for the exam only test from their TR student account history and then must fill in the correct info on their CollegeBoard account.

Late Testing will only be provided to students that have 2 AP exams on the same day and time at Mission San Jose High School.

We do not offer a class for Microeconomics or Macroeconomics and no make up test will be provided for those tests.

Hello Students!

 

Please consider participating in Harvest Helper’s Charity Organization.  This is Mission San Jose’s very own grassroots effort to reduce food waste and prevent hunger while giving you the service hours you need to graduate!

 

There are many ways you can contribute to Harvest Helpers.  We need help with …

  • database management - logging site information, harvest data, and donation locations 
  • Media/art - posters, t-shirts, flyers, logos, website development, Instagram maintenance
  • networking - Communications to get the word out and Thank Youcards.
  • harvesters - picking the fruit from the trees

 

Why this matters?

  • No one should go without fresh fruit because they can’t afford it
  • There is plenty of fresh fruit to share - it just takes a little effort
  • Fruit tree owners often need help to harvest their fruit (they appreciate it!)
  • Feel good about yourself by caring for others

 

Please sign up for Harvest Helpers at harvesthelpersmsj.org

 

We promise it will be safe and fun and you will be glad you helped others out.​
