Infinite Campus keeps requesting a District ID#. What is the District ID#?

How do I create an account with Infinite Campus?

You should have created an account when you registered for this school year. However, for those who do not have an account follow these instructions:

  • The parents can create a portal account by using their Campus Activation Key. If you have your activation key, on the home screen press “help” on the bottom left. This will drop down an option to continue using the key.

Is my Infinite Campus portal similar to my son or daughter’s portal?

Your portal is almost identical. However, if you have multiple children, you will be able to view each of their grades/attendance separately but through the same account.

 

Where can I learn more about navigating through Infinite Campus?

There are some helpful tutorial videos through YouTube.

Infinite Campus YouTube URL: https://www.youtube.com/user/theinfinitecampus

 

Why are some teachers using Infinite Campus for “in-progress” grades and others are using Jupiter?

This is a transition year for our teachers. While you may find your child’s teachers posting “in progress” grades through Jupiter, you may also find some teachers posting “in progress” grades through Infinite Campus. However, every grading period (progress reports & semester grades) will be posted under “grades” on Infinite Campus.

 

What will I be able to find on Infinite Campus?

You will find detailed information about your child’s attendance. All progress report grades and semester grades for each of your child’s classes will be posted on Infinite Campus under “grades”.

 

Can I send emails to teachers through Infinite Campus? What about Jupiter?

Email addresses of teachers can be accessed through Infinite Campus by selecting the envelope icon next to the teacher’s name. Messages can also be sent through Jupiter to teachers for the remainder of the year.

SUHI STUDENTS PLACE 1ST AT ROBOT PROGRAMMING COMPETITION @ SDCC

This story originally published on SUHSD College and Career Readiness.

On Saturday, May 14th, 19 high school teams competed in a regional Robot Programming Competition at San Diego City College.

Sweetwater Union High School District students were there!

Castle Park High School

Team name: TrojanBots

Students: Emmanuel Hidalgo & Joe Miranda

Team: Trojanators

Students: Tomas Mendoza & David Jackson

Sweetwater High School

Team name: 6619X

Students: Antoine Serrano & Cristian EspitiaDSC_0086

Students eagerly approached their assigned stations, reviewed the competition’s instructions and judging criteria, and began playing with the software; Choregraphe.  Dean Rose LaMuraglia of San Diego City College’s School of Business, Information Technology and Cosmetology kicked off the event with a presentation on careers in technology, aiming to inspire this next generation of programmers. She concluded her presentation with a demonstration in which Patrick, the Nao Robot, spoke to the students and danced to Michael Jackson’s, “Thriller.”DSC_0087

Students participated in a brief tutorial and received instruction on the software then teams were tasked with a series of challenges: they had to program the robot to creatively introduce their teams to an audience, to dance along to popular music, and to most importantly, have fun and learn!  The teams dedicated 2 hours and 30 minutes to programming Patrick (Nao Robot).

Antoine Serrano, Nao Robot (Patrick), and Christian Espitia (1st Place)

Sweetwater High School’s students Antoine Serrano and Cristian Espitia
placed first. They programmed Patrick (Nao Robot) to perform the “whip” and “nae nae.”

Congratulations Antoine & Cristian!

DSC_0057The judges assessed students based on a defined set of criteria: the use of fluid dance movements, complexity of the dance sequence, the entertainment factor, and the ability of the students to take into consideration Patrick’s limitations when programming him.

All of the students walked away with SeaWorld passes, Xbox music passes donated by The Microsoft Store, Otterbox cell phone cases donated by the OtterCares Foundation, and Rubio’s gift cards.
