MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Mrs. Osborne

Mrs. Maria Osborne
Principal, Cosumnes Oaks High School

Hello Wolfpack Community and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! This past year the teachers and staff have been hard at work on several site initiatives that center on student achievement and engagement. This region continues to grow; although growth can be a challenge it also provides opportunities to expand programs which can only benefit our college and career focus.

Cosumnes Oaks High School continues to grow in size and in opportunity. We have been very strategic in the direction of our growth with the end goal of graduating students who are college, career, and life ready. Our academies and pathways have expanded to include Coding and Robotics; the Business Pathway will offer its Level 1 class this year; the Medical Careers Pathway is building its infrastructure and will be ready to launch in 2018-2019; and the AP Capstone Pathway is also approved for launch in 2018-2019. CTEIG (Career Technical Education Incentive Grant) has provided an opportunity for COHS to upgrade and modernize the following pathways: Robotics and Coding, Video Production, Broadcast Journalism, and Graphic Arts. Modernization is occurring throughout the summer.

In March 2017, COHS was awarded the California Department of Education’s Gold Ribbon Award for the freshman transition program, Get Focused, Stay Focused (GFSF). In May, State Superintendent Tom Torlakson recognized COHS for its efforts.  The success of the GFSF program will continue to guide our implementation of the program for all 9th grade students and we will now begin to embed the tenets of the program in all grade level Advocacy classes. Parents of incoming 9th grade students will have an opportunity to hear about GFSF at the Freshman Parent Orientation on August 4. An application is in the works for this course to offer transferrable college credits for the 9th grade course and additional college credits for the Advocacy modules.

COHS will continue to expand its outreach to our parents and community members. Last year, a survey of parents indicated a strong interest in these three areas: Scholarship, Student Wellness/Recognizing the Signs of Suicide, and Navigating Social Media with their student. Due to the success of the COHS Parent/Guardian Series, we will be offering these sessions and more. Watch for surveys!

Communication —EGUSD will be transitioning to a new Student Information System called Synergy. As a result, School Loop will have been deactivated by the time you receive this newsletter. Synergy will have ParentVUE and StudentVUE features. Information about how to sign up and access new features will be forthcoming in the first weeks of school. In this newsletter we have included the names and email addresses of key contacts for quick reference as we navigate this transition together.

Asa final note, thank you for your partnership as we work together to create a unique and successful experience for students. We are the Wolfpack —as with any family dynamic, its success is grounded in the commitment and perseverance of every member: staff, students, parents/guardians, and school community.

From all of us to all of you: GO WOLFPACK!

Sincerely,
