Hello Rainier Beach Friends and Family!
Saturday School is an opportunity for all students to come and work on any late or missing work. If your student’s grades aren’t where you want them to be please encourage him or her to stop by and get caught up. We provide a quiet space to work and have tutors as well as RBHS staff available to help your child with any questions they may have. If your child is planning to come and needs specific help on a specific assignment. Have them check with their teacher to see if he or she is attending. Next Saturday School date April 26th. Thanks!
Men Working In Partnership With Schools To Create Students' Academic Success
Students attending high school or middle school throughout the Puget Sound region are invited to get a taste of computer science and basic programming at Puget Sound App Day 2014, set for Friday, May 23 at Rainier Beach High School.
Everyone is welcome to attend from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 23, regardless of prior computer science knowledge or experience, although registration is required. Since the event is being held on a school day, schools should follow their own district’s field-trip guidelines when registering their students.
Sponsored by Seattle Public Schools’ Career and Technical Education, App Day is a programming event where students learn to create apps and games on their own devices – Windows phones, Androids, iPads, laptops or whatever they have brought with them. Rainier Beach High School computer science instructors, University of Washington computer science students, and engineers from the UW and Microsoft will circulate to provide technical support for the participants’ efforts.
The event is designed to be both educational and fun, with pizza, a DJ, dance competitions and raffle giveaways included among the planned activities. The day ends with student demos, during which participants are invited to get up on stage and show off their new apps.
The inaugural 2013 App Day event drew more than 500 students from 17 area schools. While this year’s event has been expanded to accommodate more students, it is limited to the first 700 students who register. Registration deadline is May 19.

Parents have many questions about the state testing and graduation requirements. Here is a link to the OSPI (Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction) website. It discusses and gives time frames for End of Course Exams (EOC), High school Proficiency Exams (HSPE), Washington Alternate Assessment System-Developmentally Appropriate Proficiency Exam (WAAS-DAPE), Washington Alternate Assessment System (WAAS) Portfolio, and the Washington English Language Proficiency Assessment (WELPA).

The 13th Year Promise Scholarship program provides all graduating seniors from Cleveland, Chief Sealth, International, and Rainier Beach High Schools with one year of FREE tuition at South Seattle Community College as well as support services to assist students during their transition from high school to college.
The free tuition is achieved through scholarships and financial aid. Students who are eligible to apply for financial aid are supported in completing the financial aid process as costs associated to college include more than just tuition but also textbooks, supplies, course fees, transportation, and living expenses.
In order to help students make the transition from high school to college, 13th Year offers free support services through their Readiness Academy workshops and 13th Year Bridge Program. These services help students enroll in college and prepare them for college life, including learning about college resources and meeting key staff and faculty at the college.
Students are eligible upon completion of program requirements and high school graduation. Please visit www.southseattle.edu/13th-year for specific program requirements.
Wing Luke, Van Asselt and Emerson Elementary schools are looking for tutors to help support their young readers.

You can also volunteer with Dearborn Park Elementary school and their Afterschool Reading Program. Please contact Ms. Jillian Whitney.
