Oakland Tech’s 9th Grade Summer Bridge consists of 2-one week sessions — the weeks of July 9 and July 16 — that focus on helping 8th grade students transition from middle school to high school. Summer Bridge cultivates a diverse community of students and aims to prepare them to engage actively with, and meet the challenges of, a large comprehensive high school in Oakland.
The deadline to register was June 15.
Oakland Tech’s Physical Education Dept. is offering an opportunity for rising 10th, 11th and 12th grade students to retake the state-mandated Physical Fitness Test (PFT) at the end of summer. This is specifically for students who have not met the standard in 5 of 6 testing areas.
The make up tests will take place on Thursday, August 9 at 10 AM ONLY.
Students who plan on testing must be outside of the girls locker room G-12 at 10 AM and must stay until they have taken all of the tests they need to retake.
We are not able to provide a specific testing timeline because we don’t know how many students will be present for each test. For example, we may have three students who need to retake the Abdominal Strength test, or twenty. (Review the testing order below.)
Students must arrive on time wearing athletic clothes/shoes and be prepared to warm themselves up prior to the test and cool down afterward. The PE Dept. will not provide warm up or cool down times. These are responsibility of each student.
The next testing opportunity for 10th-12th graders will be in November 2018.
All incoming Bulldogs and their families are invited to Tech’s 9th Grade Orientation & Family BBQ on Friday, Aug. 10, from 4 to 7 PM, in the front of school.
This is a great (and fun!) opportunity to meet, mingle, munch and get the lowdown on life at Tech — all before the start of school on Monday, Aug. 13.
This year, we’re introducing a campus tour and orientation for interested incoming students, which includes a Q & A with student leaders from the upper grades.
Sign up now for one of three time slots:
While the students tour and learn, parents, guardians and sibs will be treated to delicious, lip-smackin’ BBQ and lively conversation on the front lawn.
Our newest Bulldogs will then rejoin everyone for dinner — including current students and parents who’ll be on hand to answer questions, offer advice and warmly welcome you to our big Bulldog family.
We hope to see you there!
Please remember to register Aug. 6 & 7. Until then, we wish you a safe, healthy and relaxing summer break.
