Students...Are you looking for a fun way to earn community service hours?  The Costa Mesa Community Run is happening on Sunday, September 23 at Jim Scott Stadium and volunteers are needed to help set up for the event, register runners, help on the course, and take down at the end of the race.  Help is needed starting at 6:30 a.m. that day.  If you would like to volunteer, please send a text message to Kathleen Andrews at (714) 319-3015.  All volunteers must complete the attached Volunteer Waiver Form.

The following email is for parents and guardians of students in Grade 9.


Dear Parents/Guardians of students in Grade 9,


Estancia High School offers a special program called Link Crew to help freshmen with the transition to high school through academic and social mentoring.  Approximately sixty-five 11th and 12th grade Link Crew Leaders were selected through a rigorous interview and training process to prepare them to serve as student leaders.  Their role is to help incoming freshmen as they assimilate to high school culture through activities specifically designed to promote and nurture individuality, self-esteem, team building, and inclusion within Estancia High School’s campus.  Each pair of volunteer Link Crew Leaders are responsible for working with an assigned group of 10-12 freshmen, meeting four times a week during instructional time allocated for the Estancia Tutorial-Advisory Program, and building friendships beyond their peer mentoring roles. 


In order to better support the freshmen academically, Estancia High School will allow our Link Crew Leaders access to the School Loop portals of the freshmen they are assigned to work with to check student progress reports and provide tutoring and assistance as needed.  Access will also provide the Link Crew Leaders the opportunity to celebrate and encourage the successes of each 9th grader. 


If you are not in agreement with your child’s Link Crew Leaders having access to your son or daughter’s School Loop account to view their grades to provide additional support to your child, please contact me at jchamberlin@nmusd.us.   Also, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our Link Crew Program.

Queridos padres/guardianes de los estudiantes en Noveno grado,


La Escuela Estancia ofrece un programa especial en el campus, llamado Link Crew para ayudar a los nuevos estudiantes con su transición a la escuela Secundaria, a través de mentores para ayuda académica y social.  Aproximádamente sesenta y cinco estudiantes de 11 y 12 grados fueron seleccionados como líderes de Link Crew, a través de un rigurosa entrevista y proceso de entrenamiento y preparación para servir como líderes de estudiantes.  Su rol es ayudar a los nuevos estudiantes tanto asimilar la cultura de la escuela secundaria a través de actividades específicamente designadas para promover y nutrir individualmente la autoestima,  el trabajo en equipo, y la  inclusión en el campus de la Escuela Estancia.  Cada par de líderes voluntarios de Link Crew son responsables de trabajar con un grupo de 10 a 12 nuevos estudiantes asignados, reuniéndose cuatro veces por semana durante el tiempo de instrucción designado para la tutoría y asesoría de las Aguilas, construyendo una amistad más allá con su pares en el rol de mentores. 


De manera de mejorar el apoyo académico de los nuevos estudiantes, la Escuela Estancia permitirá que los líderes de Link Crew accedan al portal de School Loop de los estudiantes de 9 grado que tengan asignados para que puedan trabajar y revisar el progreso de los estudiantes y proveer la tutoría y asistencia que sea necesaria.  El acceso dará a los líderes de Link Crew la oportunidad de celebrar y fomentar el éxito de los estudiantes de 9 grado.


Si usted no está de acuerdo con que el líder de Link Crew de su estudiante tenga acceso a la cuenta de School Loop de su hijo o hija para ver su notas y proveer apoyo adicional, por favor contácteme al email jchamberlin@nmusd.us.  Por favor, siéntase libre de contactarme si tiene preguntas acerca del programa de Link Crew.

The PSAT/NMSQT is for Juniors. Freshmen and Sophomores may take the test. It is given ONLY in October. In September, the high school will tell you how to sign up. When your test fee is paid, you receive an information booklet. Although the test will include many changes similar to those on the new SAT, it will not include an essay nor third year college preparatory math questions. For details visit the Collegeboard website.

College Board SAT

The SAT Reasoning Test (formerly Scholastic Aptitude Test and Scholastic Assessment Test ) is a measure of the critical thinking skills needed for academic success in college. It assesses how well you analyze and solve problems. Each section of the SAT is scored on a scale of 200-800, and the writing section will contain two subscores. The SAT is typically taken by high school juniors and seniors.

The SAT Subject Tests are designed to measure knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, as well as the ability to apply that knowledge. Subject tests are one hour and multiple choice tests. Many colleges use these exams as an indication of subject mastery and as an entrance requirement. Some colleges specify the Subject Tests they require; others allow applicants to choose which tests to take. Check which tests your college(s) require.
