To All Students Planning on Playing a Winter Sport 

A Pre-Participation Examination (PPE) or Physical Examination is needed on file with the athletic office prior to starting tryouts.  In order to make this process easier, the Gunn Athletics Department, in partnership with Stanford Children’s Health Care, will be performing PPEs on Monday, October 10, 2016. These highly trained Stanford Sports Medicine specialists will be at the PE Classroom from 1:00 pm until 7:00 pm.

All Winter Sport athletes who do not have a current PPE on file are recommended to reserve a time to be seen. Please click on the link to make your reservation: http://www.stanfordchildrens.org/en/service/young-athletes-academy/palo-alto-unified-school-district

In addition to having a current and valid PPE, students and parents will need to create an account on athleticclearance.com. This is the online version of the Athletic Packet, which doubles as parental consent and your coach’s emergency card, must also be completed before the first day of tryouts.

The presentations of this past September 8th Freshman & Sophomore Parent Night are now viewable here.

Test Dates for the 2017-2018 School Year

These test dates are listed by the College Board, but they’re still subject to change. The registration and score release dates are estimated by us based on general patterns from previous years.
This will mark the first year that the College Board has added an August test date and eliminated the test date in January.

Q: WHAT DOES THE SITE COUNCIL DO?

A: The Site Council is one of four advisory groups to the principal, including the Instructional Supervisors, the student SEC, and the PTSA.

Site Council works closely with the administration and staff on several projects, including input into the development and site approval of Gunn’s School Plan, approval of the Safe School Plan, and participation in and acceptance of the WASC self-study report.

We have the pleasure of allocating funds to worthy pilot programs and student support projects that support at least one of the WASC goals. This year, Site Council received $22,300.00 for 2016-2017, which will be used to fund various projects, including $1,335.00 for The Library Protection Bill to be used for Library Funds, Document Camera for World Language Dept., Fiber Arts and Embroidery Machine for CTE, and Implementing Inquiry-Based and Cooperative Learning.

Q: WHAT ROLE DO PARENTS PLAY ON SITE COUNCIL?

A: Two of the four parent representatives on Site Council are elected every two years by general ballot to represent the concerns of Gunn students’ parents. Last spring, you elected Ani Gnanalingam and Jen Schultz for a two year term, which began this September. Jane Dick and Liz Milner will conclude a very productive term of office this year on the Council. Under the bylaws,  Jane and Jen are able to seek re-election for another two-year term next spring. A call for parent representatives will be issued on the Site Council Website in March and in the GUNN CONNECTION. The official ballot will be posted on the Site Council Website with a corresponding E-ballot in GUNN CONNECTION. Only parents of current Gunn students may vote. The election results will be announced in May on the Gunn Connection.

Q: HOW DO I FIND OUT MORE ABOUT SITE COUNCIL?

A:  Site Council’s meeting schedule may be found on the Site Council Website and is posted in the Gunn Connection. The agenda for each meeting is publicized 72 hours prior to a meeting on the Main Office bulletin board, on the Site Council Website and in the GUNN CONNECTION. Members of the public are welcome to attend but their comments are limited to 5 minutes at the beginning of each meeting. Topics may be pursued at the Council’s discretion. For more information on Site Council, contact Rene’ Hart, Coordinator, at  rhart@pausd.org or phone 650. 849.7932.

NEXT THREE MEETINGS ARE  SEPTEMBER 12 and OCTOBER 10 at 4:00PM in the STAFF LOUNGE AND NOVEMBER  7 IN THE LIBRARY  AT 7:00PM.
