Please enjoy this time with family and friends.
We hope that you will make the type of memories that will be cherished forever.

Scholar Led Conferences (SLC's)

The week-long, Scholar Led Conferences (SLC's) provided the opportunity for families to engage with their scholar and learn about their overall progress thus far. More than 80% of families visited the campus to meet with Advisory Learning Facilitators as their scholar led the conference and discussed their strengths, challenges, progress, and goals for the rest of the academic year. We look forward to providing the support for each scholar in order to meet and exceed their personal goals.
Thanks to all parents and guardians who came onsite to share in the conversation. We appreciate your constant support! Please continue to log on to Powerschool to monitor progress and communicate regularly with each of your scholar's Learning Facilitators.

Honoring e3 Parents... Giving-of-Thanks

We honored our parents with a FREE, catered Thanksgiving luncheon as we celebrated their unwavering support! The team served a delicious meal with baked turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans, salad, and apple pie. All guests enjoyed the beautiful view from the Library's 9th floor Shiley Special Events Suite and holiday harmonies of the Advanced Choir under the direction of Ms. Wallace. We had gifts for the families in attendance and it was a beautiful demonstration of thanks!

UCSD & San Diego Padres Partner with e3 Civic High for STEM Career Day!

Earlier this month, Dudek introduced Bobby and his own unconventional career path to about 90 e3 scholars. UC San Diego Health staff walked with scholars to Petco Park for a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) career day.

“When the San Diego Padres selected UC San Diego as their official health care provider earlier this year, it was important to both organizations to collaborate on health and education outreach efforts in the local community,” said Patty Maysent, CEO of UC San Diego Health. It was at that time they chose to partner with e3 Civic High and engage scholars to the plethora of STEM careers that exist in major league baseball and the healthcare industry.

During the event, Dudek, Eric Hernandez, community health program representative from the Shiley Eye Institute at UC San Diego Health, and Brian McBurney, director of Baseball Research and Development for the Padres, spoke to the scholars about nontraditional STEM careers available in health care and sports.

“We have the types of careers nobody ever says they’re going to be when they grow up, because they don’t exist then,” Dudek said. “Now, STEM is the foundation for many careers, even if you don’t plan to become an engineer or a doctor. And even if you do, doctors can’t purely specialize in medicine without also incorporating technology — from learning a new procedure using virtual reality, to using electronic medical records or robots that assist in surgery.” The expert panel was moderated by Dr. Griffith and the scholars were particularly interested to learn about the connections between health care and sports, and how STEM is woven in to so many careers. After lunch they enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of Petco Park.

When reflecting on the trip, Zora, a 10th grader stated, “Today has really been a reality check to show we’re not learning STEM just because… there are actually a lot of uses for these subjects”. She hopes to pursue a career that uses mathematics — her favorite STEM subject. Thank you UC San Diego Health Care and San Diego Padres for this transformational partnership.

Honor our Veterans *School will be closed on Friday, November 10th.*

Veterans Day is a U.S. legal holiday dedicated to American Veterans of all wars. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, then known as “the Great War.” Commemorated in many countries as Armistice Day the following year, November 11th became a federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became legally known as Veterans Day.

On June 4, 1926, Congress passed a resolution that the “recurring anniversary of November 11, 1918 should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations,” and that the president should issue an annual proclamation calling for the observance of Armistice Day.

By that time, 27 state legislatures had made November 11 a legal holiday. An act approved May 13, 1938 made November 11 a legal Federal holiday, “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as Armistice Day.  

This week (and all weeks), we join with the nation in honoring veterans of all wars who have given their service to keep our country safe.  We honor their sacrifice and say "thank you for your courage".  

School will be closed on Friday, November 10th.
