  • Today and Friday are minimum days.  Students will be released at 1:12.


  • Parent-Teacher conferences are today from 1:30 until 8:00pm with a teacher dinner break from 5 to 5:30pm.


  • A Sikh place of worship is called a Gurdwara. There are Gurdwaras in many cities in the Bay Area. Cities of San Jose, Fremont and El Sobrante have large Gurdwaras while others have small ones. The Gurdwara in Fremont attracts the largest congregation of all Gurdwaras in the Bay Area. On an average Sunday, there could be 4-5 thousand devotees at this Gurdwara. Did you know there is a road called Gurdwara Road in Fremont? You should find out where it is!


  • Your TUPE fact of the day:  Cigarette smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals, 70 of which are known to cause cancer.


  • The GSA Club brings you another fun fact. There are many notable trans people you might not even know about. Lynn Conway is a trans woman who helped invent the computer processing chip in all computers. Shirley P. Johnson, Laverne Cox, and Chaz Bono are all important public figures who have also fought for the rights of the trans community.


  • Due to the minimum day dismissal on Friday there will be no Black Student Union meeting.  The next BSU meeting will be held on November 30th.


  • Looking for something to do during your break?  You can stop by the library, check-out a book and let your imagination take you to different places.


  • Speech and debaters...please check Google Classroom for a special announcement for about another tournament opportunity on December 1st! Sorry, debaters, this tournament is for speech only.


  • Due to the poor air quality there will be no basketball, football or any physical activity allowed during lunch or after school this week.
