Preparing the 2017 AP Answer Sheets

Attention: All students that have ordered an AP exam must complete a 2017 AP ANSWER SHEET prior to the exam.  If you are enrolled in the AP class, you will receive one from your AP teacher.  If you ordered an AP exam but are not enrolled in the class, you must come to the AP Office (Room 132) or the Dean's office (Room 102) to get an AP Answer Sheet.  Note:  AP Human Geography students will fill out on exam day, so do not need to fill one out until then.  Use the linked Power Point  for instructions on how to fill it out.  Please return the completed answer sheet by Friday, April 28th.

Thank you,  AP Office

Class of 2020 Students needing Geometry

Although Lowell will allow students to double up in Geometry and Algebra 2 during sophomore year for a more comprehensive and sensibly paced learning of Geometry, the district will be offering a compressed and intense Geometry course this summer to a limited number of students from all SFUSD high schools.  The course will meet at Galileo High School from 8am to 2PM daily with homework every night and run from June 5 through July 14.  While Lowell has not seen the curriculum from this “compressed” course and how many State standards it will teach, SFUSD says it will meet the high school geometry requirement and gives 10 units of high school math credit.  The application deadline is April 30, 2017.  Click here for more information.  Online application is also available at http://tinyurl.com/SFUSDSummerGeo2017.

So close, yet so far away.  From 1910 to 1940, many Angel Island Immigration Station immigrants experienced these feelings upon reaching America, but were detained from entering San Francisco.  On May 7, 2017 (12:00-3:00), the San Francisco Public Library Main Library will celebrate Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month by spotlighting personal immigrant stories from those who went through Angel Island.

Look forward to educational games and craft activities for all ages, a display of Angel Island family histories, books, news articles, and photos. The first 50 children ages 12 and under will receive a goody bag.


Co-sponsors: the Asian American Studies Department at San Francisco State University, TACT (The Association of Chinese Teachers), the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, and the Square and Circle Club.
