Sea Dragon parents, please don’t forget that the final day of fundraising for this year’s Help-a-thon is Monday the 30th and all donations are due to AJHS on Tuesday the 1st. Thank you to all those that contributed to this event!
The help-a-thon is simply a mechanism that allows our community to sponsor our student’s efforts to serve in the community and to serve here on campus. AJHS admin and staff are finalizing plans to conduct a number of site based and community based service events which include the following…
b. AJHS Backyard Ecosystem Project (on site)
c. Holiday Mail for Heroes (on site)
d. Second Harvest Food Collection (on site)
e. Other campus beautification projects at the AJHS
as well as community based events like...
a. Sorting food at Second Harvest Food Bank in Watsonville on either the 12/13 or 12/20
b. "Trestle to School" clean up to support our partners and business owners in Aptos and
make a logical contribution to our community
c. Beach Cleanup
All of the on-site events will take place on either December 18th at AJHS as part of a special schedule. The community based events will take place during the month of December at various locations.
We ask that parents, guardians and extended family members “sponsor (make a monetary contribution to AJHS in the name of their student) by using the following link (www.help-a-thon.com). Your contribution or “sponsorship” will help AJHS raise funds to support large scale community art projects, purchase supplemental materials and equipment to enrich education, purchase technology for the classrooms and provide needed funding for after school sports and clubs. Additionally, your participation in the help-a-thon will help us to introduce community service to our students and or support your current efforts to create opportunities for our students to serve.
Thank you again for your help and support.

The Pajaro Valley Unified School District (PVUSD) will begin implementing its Open Enrollment Intra-District Transfer process for the 2016-2017 school year. Applications will be accepted November 2 – December 18, 2015. Open Enrollment means that parents living in the PVUSD attendance area have an opportunity to select another district school for their child(ren) to attend, grade levels Kindergarten through 12. Open Enrollment Intra-District Transfers will be processed based on a space-available.
Students currently attending a school on an Open Enrollment Intra-District transfer will automatically be approved for the next grade level at the same school without a need to re-apply. Students moving to a middle or high school outside their attendance area must re-apply only if there are multiple schools that the elementary or middle school feeds into at the next grade level.
If you wish to apply for an Intra-District Transfer, complete an application at your school of residence and return it to your school of residence or the Student Services Department by December 18, 2015.
If your request for Open Enrollment is approved, you will be notified by the requested school. Realize that since many of the district schools are already enrolled to or near capacity, your request may be denied and your child would then be placed on the 2016-2017 Wait List for the requested school. Families will be notified by that school as space becomes available. In the meantime, students must remain enrolled in their current school of residence.
All families that have already had a student placed on a school’s established wait list must fill out a new application and check box #3 “Current Year’s Wait List” on the form.
Parents should be aware that transportation is not provided for students on Intra-District Transfers and bus passes will not be issued to these students.
Remember that the application deadline for Open Enrollment is December 18, 2015. If you have any questions, please contact your school’s principal.

AJHS home and school club builds a GoFundMe site for technology and they need our help!
The Aptos Junior High Home and School Club has taken up the challenge and is asking all AJHS stakeholders, past, present and future, to help purchase technology needed for 21st century instruction and learning. We have set our sights on purchasing at least two new chrome book carts for Aptos Junior High School students (total cost is approximately $35,000.00.) These carts are mobile and can be used in all classrooms for a variety of instructional/education activities. Chrome books are lightweight, cost effective, and easy to use. Our students have quickly grown accustomed to using them to complete a myriad of individual and collaborative projects. Additional chrome carts will support our efforts to continue to integrate technology into our classrooms.
