ASTI Schoolwide Announcements
Penny wars is going on this week! I know some of you might be like, “But Jacob, what is Penny Wars?!" Well I’ll tell you, Penny Wars is a contest that happens throughout Spirit Week. Each class gets their own Penny Jar (Located in the office). Your objective as a class is get the most pennys in your class jar to get the most spirit points for your class. If you wanna be real slick, you can sabotage other class’s Penny jars by putting anything other than a penny in their jars. This can include nickels, dimes, quarters, dollar bills, and so on. You may not take out anything out of any of the jars in the office. Your class will be penalized in points accordingly.
Good bee-vening ASTI students! On Thursday, November 3rd Ms. Campbell will be hosting the first round of the annual ASTI spelling bee.

11th & 12th graders: ASTI’s college registration date will be Friday, November 18th. Ms. Jurkovich will pass out concurrent enrollment forms and course schedule planners to upperclassmen in classes this week. The Spring 2016 Peralta Schedule of classes will be posted online Monday, October 31st. 11th graders must turn in their concurrent enrollment forms and course schedule planners to Ms. Jurkovich by Thursday, November 3rd at 3:00pm. Seniors must turn in concurrent enrollment forms and schedule planners by Friday, November 4th at 3:00pm. Students who submit their forms by this deadline will be entered into the enrollment lottery for their place in the enrollment line on the 18th. Seniors enroll first; juniors enroll second. Anyone who submits a form after their class deadline will be placed at the back of the enrollment line for their class. If you need a prerequisite cleared, you must attach a sticky note to your concurrent enrollment form listing the course that you need cleared, along with how you have satisfied your prerequisite (for example, if you plan to take English 5, you would write “English 5, prereq satisfied by English 1A in progress”). The spring schedule of classes will be available at passport.peralta.edu under the “schedule of classes” link on Monday.
Winter intersession: 11th & 12th graders who would like to take a winter intersession course may register now. Winter intersession runs from December 19th through January 13th, 2017. Winter Intersession courses are fast-paced, online courses. 11th & 12th graders may only register for one intersession course at a time. ASTI does not cover any fees accrued during intersession. Winter intersession adds units to the Fall 2016 semester; if you are under 11 units but an intersession course takes you over 11, you will be charged for all of your fees, which ASTI does not cover.
9th & 10th graders: More information will be available in the coming weeks regarding ASTI’s concurrent enrollment policies for your grade level.
