Chicas Latinas de Sacramento, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is striving to reduce the digital divide and provide equal opportunities by giving students the tools they need to succeed. In this digital age, lacking an at-home computer makes it difficult to complete homework and further learning. As a result, we are collecting gently used laptops, refurbishing them, and supplying them to students in need of an at-home computer.

 

This year we are donating the laptops to middle school students. Applications are due June 16, 2017 and students may apply by completing the attached application (provided in English and Spanish).  

 

See attached applications.

*The first 100 students to become AR users (by taking and passing an AR quiz-independently, not a teacher sample quiz) will earn a limited edition AR cup full of surprises.

*Our goal this year is to pass 5,000 AR quizzes school-wide.  Last year we were about 100 quizzes short of this goal.

*Check out the cafeteria window to see all of our point club rewards.  

*Listen on Friday mornings for the weekly AR announcement.  You could be our next Random Reader!  Each week we'll pick three Random Readers, one from each grade.

*If you need help, please see Mr. Ortega in the library or Mrs. Lilly in room 12 during 1st lunch.

*Everyone should have received AR instructions from your English teachers, but here they are in case you need them again:

*Highlighted are a few updates

 

All students are expected to dress appropriately for an educational environment.  Any clothing or accessory that significantly interferes with, or disrupts the educational environment, are unacceptable. 

For the 2016-2017 school year, Rio Tierra Jr. High has expanded the dress code policy to include clothing of all colors with the exception of red and blue.  Red and blue clothing and accessories (including socks, belts, and shoes) are strictly prohibited.

Clothing, jewelry, and personal items with language or images that are vulgar, sexually suggestive, discriminatory, obscene or libelous, or that promote illegal or violent content, such as the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia, or clothing that contains threats, are prohibited.

Clothing should fit, be neat and clean, and conform to standards of safety, good taste, and decency.

Clothing that exposes cleavage, private parts, the midriff, or undergarments, or that is otherwise sexually provocative is prohibited. Jeans, pants, and shorts cannot have holes that show or exposes skin.

Hats and hoods are permitted outdoors as a sun protective measure.  Hats and hoods should be removed once indoors and should conform to all dress code provisions.  Bandanas of any kind are not permitted.

Footwear must adequately protect students’ feet.  Close toed shoes are preferred.  Sandals and other open toed footwear are permitted provided they have a substantial sole and back that straps around the heel.  Flip flops, slides, or slippers are not permitted.  Regardless of the shoe worn to school, students must wear closed toed athletic shoes for Physical Education class every day.
