It’s hard to believe, but it’s already time to start planning for
the next school year! Over the next few weeks your student
will start the process of registering for next year’s classes. We
had a tremendously successful Freshman Fair on January 21st.
The PTSA orchestrated a fun and welcoming event for all incoming 9th graders – giving them the opportunity to look
around the building, meet some of the student leaders,
teachers, and administrators with whom they will be working
next year, and find out about some of the fantastic classes,
clubs, and activities they can look forward to as East High
When your child comes home with his or her registration
material, please take time to have a conversation about the
importance of choosing a schedule that will fit all the
requirements and expectations you both have for next year.
Look for a balance between required classes and electives,
challenging courses that will help her or him prepare for the
future, and classes that give your student an opportunity to
follow interests and passions.
Remember that East High offers more concurrent enrollment
classes than any other school in the district. This means that
your child has an opportunity to not only earn high school
credit towards graduation, he or she can be earning college
credit at the same time – with the bonus attraction of paying a
one-time fee ($40) that will cover all concurrent classes!
Additionally, we offer a wide variety of AP classes. Our goal
is to have every student who graduates from East High take at
least one AP class during their four years here. All the
research points to the fact that students who take an AP class
February 2014
are better prepared for their college experience than those who
One of the most exciting programs we offer at East is our
School District and the University of Utah Health Sciences
Center jointly sponsor the Health Professions Academy (HPA)
at East High. This academy is for students who are interested
in college preparatory courses with an emphasis on science
and health professions.
The purpose of the HPA is to provide a greater understanding
and appreciation of career development in the health sciences
through high school and university-based educational
experiences. A particular emphasis is placed on the
recruitment and retention of students from groups traditionally
underrepresented in the health sciences professions. Some of
the participating colleges and departments from the University
of Utah Health Sciences Center include the School of
Medicine; the Colleges of Nursing, Health and Pharmacy; the
Department of Human Genetics; and the Office of Ethnic and
Minority affairs.
Students entering 9th or 10th grade may apply to be members of
the HPA at East High. They have opportunities for:
• Hands-on “real-life” learning
• Working with real health care professionals
• Field trips to health science facilities
• Providing health-related service in the community
• Internships and shadowing opportunities
• University partnership experiences
Choosing classes for next year is a big deal! Take some time
and help your child choose relevant and enjoyable classes –
the future depends on it!
A new fines list has been posted at the school. Please have
your students check this list to see if they have any fees or
fines owing. You may check your student’s fines on the
following website (you will need your
student number to access this). Please be aware that more
fines may accrue before the end of the year. Seniors will not
be allowed to pick up their cap and gowns until all fees are
paid and all books, uniforms, etc. are returned. Seniors will not
be allowed to participate in graduation activities or
ceremonies unless all fees are taken care of; this means they
will not be allowed to walk on graduation day. Be sure all fees
and fines are cleared before yearbook day or students will not
be allowed to pick up their yearbooks. The treasurer does take
cash, check and credit card (Visa, Discover and MasterCard).

AVID at East High School is in its 8th year. The Class of
2014 is beginning to receive their college admittance letters.
Students are looking forward to attending the University of
Utah, Westminster College, BYU and Utah State. This is busy
scholarship season, and AVID seniors are working hard to
complete all of their applications for scholarships.
AVID/Clemente students, along with AVID 9th graders had
the opportunity to visit the Utah Museum of Fine Arts this
month. There, students were exposed to great art from around
the world. In addition, East AVID hosted Glendale Middle
School's AVID students for a day of collaboration in learning.
Together, over 75 students did activities to strengthen their
understanding of determination and critical thinking. Coming
up, will be a visit to Bryant Middle School, where students
will share their high school experiences.
AVID Juniors are busy strengthening their skills in ACT
testing. The ACT test is a college readiness assessment and
standardized test for high school achievement and college
admissions in the United States. Students must be able to meet
minimum standards for acceptance in to college. For more
information about AVID at East High, visit our website or email program coordinator, Cate

FAFSA stands for the Free Application for Federal Student
On February 27th, we will have a FAFSA Completion Night.
Parents and students are strongly encouraged to come to this
night. We will sit down at computers in the Library and
Computer Lab, and complete the FAFSA application together.
We will have several financial aid experts who will be there to
assist you with the application. All college-bound seniors and
their parents/guardians are welcome.
Key Terms:
• Grants: financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid (unless,
for example, you withdraw from school and owe a refund)
• Work-Study: a work program through which you earn
money to help you pay for school
• Student Loan: borrowed money for college or career
school; you must repay your loans, with interest
• IRS Data Retrieval Tool: Using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool
can make completing the FAFSA easier and save you time
later in the financial aid process. The IRS Data Retrieval
Tool downloads your tax information into the FAFSA. You
can use the Tool when you initially complete the FAFSA or
later on to update your FAFSA.
• Starting in February, students and parents who have
already filed their 2013 federal tax returns will be able to
use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. To use the Tool, your
Federal Tax Returns must be electronically filed at least two
weeks (or 6-8 weeks earlier if filing by mail) before using
the IRS Data Retrieval Process.
• Priority Deadline: deadline by which a college/university
would like your FAFSA to be complete. FAFSA’s completed
after this deadline may not receive any aid as there is a
limited amount of money that any college/university can
grant students.
For the 2014-2015 school year you (the student) will need
financial information from 2013. You may need to refer to:
• Your Social Security Number. It is important that you enter
your Social Security Number correctly!
• Your driver's license (if any)
• Your 2013 W-2 forms and other records of money earned
• Your (and if married, your spouse's) 2013 Federal Income
Tax Return.

o Foreign Tax Return, or
o Tax Return for Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the
U.S. Virgin Islands, the Marshall Islands, the Federal
States of Micronesia, or Palau
• Your Parents' 2013 Federal Income Tax Return (if you are a
dependent student)
• Your 2013 untaxed income records
• Your current bank statements
• Your current business and investment mortgage
information, business and farm records, stock, bond and
other investment records (if applicable)
• Your alien registration or permanent resident card (if you
are not a U.S. citizen)

the FAFSA website (
1. Go to
2. Click on “Pin site” at the top of the page
a. Click on “Apply Now” and apply for a pin
i. Your PIN serves as your electronic signature for the

In addition to the regular health science course curriculum,
students participate in numerous activities outside of the
classroom, where they interact with healthcare professionals in

ninth and tenth grade students so far this year have been field
trips to the University Hospital Burn Unit, Neonatal Intensive
Care Unit, Air Med, and a presentation from the State Medical
Examiner. Eleventh grade students travel to the university
each class day during the fall semester. One of their favorite
activities was being allowed to participate in cadaver
dissections with university medical students. The senior year
students are all currently placed in medical internships during
1st or 2nd semesters. The HPA Steering Committee is pleased
to have Rachel Clothier- Health Science and Med Terms (9th),

feria de los nuevos estudiantes el 21 de enero el PTS porque
orquestró una bienvenida fantástica para los estudiantes de
noveno año dándoles la oportunidad de visitar nuestro edificio
y conocer algunos de nuestros estudiantes líderes profesores y
directores con los cuales ellos tendrán el placer de trabajar el
próximo año. También tuvieron la oportunidad de averiguar
sobre las fantásticas clases, club y actividades en las cuales
participar en los próximos años.
Cuando su hijo llegue a casa con su matriculación materiales

escoger un horario con todos los requerimientos y espectativas
que usted tiene para próximo año.
Busque el balance entre las clases que se requieren la
selectivas las dificultosas para que puedan ayudar a su hijo o
hija en un futuro. Las clases darán a su estudiante la
oportunidad para seguir con el interés y la pasión.
Recuerden que la escuela de East ofrece más cursos vàlidos
universitarios, esto significa que su estudiante tendrá la
oportunidad no sólo de ganar créditos para su graduación de
high school, pero también puede conseguir créditos
universitarios al mismo tiempo. Sin olvidar el gran beneficio
de pagar sólo una vez 40 $ que cubriría todas las clases
universitarias adicionalmente ofrecemos una gran variedad de
clases AP. Nuestra meta aquí en la escuela es de que cada
estudiante por lo menos tome una de las de la clases de AP
durante uno de los cuatro años estudiando aquí. Todas las
investigaciones apuntan al hecho de que estudiantes que
toman clases AP están mucho mejor preparados para la
universidad que aquellos quienes no las toman.
Uno de los programas con más éxito que ofrecemos en la
escuela es la Academia de las Profesiones de la Salud
profesional. El distrito escolar de Salt Lake City y la
Universidad de Utah, departamento de ciencias de la salud
están trabajando juntos con nuestra escuela.
El propósito de este departamento es el proveer una gran
comprensión y apreciación a la carrera derivada de las ciencias
de la salud a través de nuestra escuela y experiencias
universitarias educacionales. En la escuela de las ciencias de
la salud ustedes podrán encontrar varios departamentos como
el de genética, farmacia, enfermería y otros campos mas.

Escoger las clases para el próximo año es un trabajo muy
importante y usted debería ayudar a su hijo a escoger las
mejores clases y las más apropiadas porque su futuro depende
de esto.
