JET BLAST ~ WEEK OF 10/15/17


UPDATED OCTOBER 16TH,  11:25am.  Based on air quality and the decision of Hayward & Alameda Unified School Districts, the 4:00 JV football games have been cancelled.  Varsity games will kick off at 6:15pm, pending air quality.  Check back after 4:00 for a final decision re: the Varsity games.




What a week!  Our thoughts are with all who have been affected by the fires in northern California.  A HUGE thank you to all those who have donated to Ms. Frey’s caravan of items for the fire victims, and also to those students trying to secure chrome books for the seniors at Cardinal Newman so they can work on their college applications.  The heart of this community never ceases to amaze.


At the time of this writing, the football games scheduled for Friday are tentatively rescheduled for Monday, pending air quality approval.  The JV team will play at 4:00 pm and the Varsity team will play at 6:30pm.  Stay tuned here for updates.


With the potential for two additional football games, and homecoming, it is going to be an amazingly busy week!!


Seniors!  Tuesday is the last day to order your cap and gown.  Jostens will be at Encinal at lunch in front of the Media Center to get the final orders.  Don’t miss this last opportunity to order your caps and gowns!


Visits from Colleges:  Simmons College will be here on Tuesday for a presentation at lunch in the College & Career Center.  Simmons is a small liberal arts school located in beautiful Boston, Massachusetts.

UC Berkeley will be here 5th period on Tuesday in the College & Career Center.  This session is specifically for seniors planning on applying to UCB and seniors must get their passes ahead of time to attend this session as space is limited.


School Play ~ A Midsummer’s Night Dream:  The Encinal High School Drama Department is presenting Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" as a special fundraiser to help support the Alameda Food Bank. "Midsummer" will play Oct. 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 2pm in the Encinal Amphitheater (aka the student parking lot!). Admission is free, but donations will be asked for to help provide food for the hungry in Alameda. This continues a tradition of using theater to help fund local non-profits going back many years. Last spring a donation was made to FAAS (Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter) and several years ago "Project Open Hand" was the recipient of a contribution. "Midsummer" is Shakespeare's most popular comedy and is suited for audiences of all ages. Come see actor Jets from grades 6-12 this and next weekend.


It’s Homecoming!!!!  Homecoming is a very creative and fun time for our students and this is the week.  Please see the School Loop calendar for daily dress days.


Wall Decoration Night is Thursday from 6:00pm until 10:00pm in the gym. 


The Homecoming Game is at 7:00pm vs. Arroyo.  (Junior Jets and all middle school students must be accompanied by an adult to attend this and all high school football games).


The Homecoming Dance for students in grades 9-12, is from 7:pm until 10:pm in the gym.  Doors close at 8:00pm, and no one will be admitted after that time.  Tickets are $15 pre-sale and $20 at the door.  Students on the Loss of Privilege List may not attend.
