Hurry to order your Marie Callender Thanksgiving Pies from a senior at Fillmore High School or call Mrs Chaney 524-4909. The deadline is Monday the 17th of November. This fundraiser is our best one because it gives our Fillmore people the opportunity to get their pies and not have to travel to a Marie Callender restaurant and stand in line to purchase their pies. Grad Nite Live is a non-profit organization that has kept our senior classes safe and have a good time on a Harbor Cruise in Long Beach for 18 years. It is very important that we support Grad Nite Live in all their fundraisers for the 246 students of the Class of 2009 which will cost $26,000.00 this year. Thank you.

 


 

As many individuals, businesses, schools, and other organizations throughout Southern California get ready to “drop, cover, and hold” for the Great Southern California ShakeOut Drill on November 13 (www.shakeout.org), Ventura County Community College District (VCCCD) will conduct its own emergency preparedness training at Moorpark College, Oxnard College, Ventura College, and the District Administrative Center to coincide with the ShakeOut event.

VCCCD has been working with West Coast Consulting for the past year to prepare and train employees at all three campuses and the District Administrative Center for emergency situations of all types, including earthquakes, floods, fires, an active shooter, or crimes in progress. “These trainings enable us to test our response to simulated emergency situations and provide valuable information we can use to evaluate how best to protect our students, employees, and members of the community in the event of an actual emergency,” said Dr. James Meznek, Chancellor. “While we hope these situations will never happen, it is essential we be prepared.”

Moorpark College and Oxnard College will hold training exercises on Thursday, November 13, while Ventura College and the District Administrative Center will hold training exercises on Friday, November 14. Designated employee emergency team members will be given emergency situation scenarios and expected to act based on prior training. Peter Wright, Director of Emergency Planning and Preparedness for the California Community Colleges System Office, will be visiting Moorpark College to observe emergency team members in action.

The Fall Carnival was a huge success this year for Fillmore elementary schools. Their partnership with Wells Fargo really brought out the community. “Having the stagecoach here for the students to climb into was really awesome” states Mary Whiteford, Secretary at San Cayetano. Wells Fargo team members from various Ventura County Offices came out to support the carnival and support the Fillmore Office with Eric Iriee, Branch Manager. The carnival this year was bigger than ever with more staff members than ever participating in the game and food booths. “I estimate that we had close to 2000 community members enjoying the carnival. The two ticket booths were always a mile long “ says San Cayetano principal Jan Marholin. Lou Hoover’s famous cinnamon rolls sold out quickly and that booth is a donation booth each year and the money goes directly to a charity chosen by one of the elementary schools. This year it was Mountain Vista’s choice and the donation of $528 will be made to The Dream Fund Outreach Foundation. We would also like to thank the many volunteers who helped support the event.

 

It is obvious to passers by that Fillmore High School has been going through a number of facility improvements over the past few years. We have a modern science building, new classrooms, a remodeled gymnasium, a new fence, a beautiful new stadium/track complex, and a fresh coat of paint. The school is looking great! What is not so obvious to passers by is that Fillmore High School is in the middle of a very important evaluation year of the instructional program. In fact, Fillmore High School is going through two evaluations within a matter of months—a SAIT curriculum audit and a WASC accreditation.

Under the SAIT Program (School Assistance Intervention Team) schools are provided with a team which evaluates the school’s academic program, school climate, leadership, and extracurricular program, and makes recommendations for changes to improve student achievement. The SAIT program is required by the California Department of Education because Fillmore High School failed to make adequate progress in the State testing program the past two years. The SAIT team working with Fillmore High School is from the Ventura County Office of Education. The team spent time on campus last spring and this fall interviewing students, parents, teachers and staff about all aspects of the campus, collecting curriculum documents, meeting minutes, and other information to help them develop a clear picture of the school. Last month the SAIT team spent four days on campus observing each teacher in action. Since their visit in October, the SAIT team has been writing a lengthy report that will be presented to the school leadership team in December and the staff in January. The curriculum audit report will give detailed information on the quality of the instructional program and will make recommendations for changes to improve student achievement. CONTINUED »

To conclude the assembly, students were reminded to turn in their Perfect Attendance tickets. Each month all students who come to school, each day, on time, are given an orange raffle ticket. The students place their tickets in a box and one ticket is drawn. The student whose ticket is drawn is given a backpack full of supplies. Each month, the tickets will be put into a larger box that will be kept until the end of the year. In June, Mrs. Marholin, the principal, will draw from the tickets to give away two new bicycles. , Ty Wyand, Mrs. Chavez’s class room 17, won the Perfect Attendance Award for November.

The High School has been a flurry of activity this week, for not only is it Santa Paula Week, but it is also Red Ribbon week.
Red Ribbon week is a nation-wide campaign against drugs. Students are encouraged to wear a red wristband to show that they are proud of being drug free, and there is a dress up day every day of the week that corresponds to an anti-drug message.
However, because this week is also our campaign against Santa Paula in preparation for the big game on Friday, the dress up days cannot be too “red friendly”. The student government has been creative and the week included days such as “Give Drugs, and Santa Paula the Blues” and on Halloween, “Say Boo to Drugs and Santa Paula”.
We have had a variety of noontime activities this week to get students pumped up for the game. On Monday, the Juniors won the “Chicken Chuck” by throwing a rubber chicken the farthest across the quad. The games will culminate in a car-bashing on Friday, courtesy of the cheerleaders. Students can pay three dollars to hit a totaled car three times with a sledge hammer, and all proceeds support the cheer program. There will also be a costume contest, a “Food Day”, and a rally on Friday. The clubs will be allowed to sell sweets on this particular Food Day because it is Halloween.
The girls volleyball team had a home game against Santa Paula on Tuesday.
Pre-sale tickets for the Santa Paula game are on sale in the Student Store. If you buy a ticket, you are guaranteed entrance to the game, but you should still come early to grab a seat. Tickets are free with an ASB sticker, $3 for seniors, $4 for children, and $7 for adults.
For more information, contact the student store at 524-8491.

 

During the week of October 27, Sierra High School was visited by seven candidates running for Fillmore City Council. Marcoz Hernandez, Steve Conaway, Norris Pennington, Royce Davis, Omero Martinez, Jamey Brooks, and Gayle Washburn spent time talking to students and sharing their visions for the future of Fillmore as well as the youth. Sierra High School students were very excited to have the opportunity to voice their concerns, ask questions, and offer a “youth perspective” on local politics. Cynthia Frutos, a teacher from Sierra High School stated, “This went really well in that we used nontraditional methods to teach students about Government, English, and Electives in this integrated unit. That is why we are an alternative school.” The students were honored in knowing that no where else in Fillmore Unified School District did the candidates talk to students. Sierra High School students held their own election on Monday, November 3rd and the following candidates received the most votes: Omero Martinez, Marcoz Hernandez, and Royce Davis. Sierra High School would like to thank all of the candidates for visiting and Isela Larin, The College and Career Technician, for making it all happen.

 

SACRAMENTO – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell today announced that the State Allocation Board (SAB) awarded more than $192 million to 47 schools for the construction and modernization of school facilities. Also, another $16 million for 23 schools was awarded to help pay for emergency repairs. The list of schools is attached.
“Students are our most precious investment in the future, and they must have safe and modern facilities in which to learn,” said O’Connell. “I want to thank voters who approved bond measures to support California’s aging school facilities, so the State Allocation Board can make sure schools get the funds they need to provide the proper learning environment for children.”
O’Connell is a member of the SAB that also approved final construction apportionments for the Academy for Career Education charter school in Wheatland, Yuba County; and the Maria Montessori Charter Academy in Rocklin, Placer County. The SAB approved funds as well to assist the Bass Lake Joint Union Elementary School District in Bass Lake, Madera County; and Nuestro Elementary School in Live Oak, Sutter County, providing much needed safety enhancements. The California Department of Education worked closely with the districts to assist them in preparing their request to the SAB.
The SAB is responsible for determining the allocation of state resources, such as proceeds from General Obligation Bond issues and other designated State funds used for the new construction and modernization of local public school facilities. The SAB is also charged with the responsibility for the administration of the School Facility Program, the Charter School Facilities Program, the Overcrowded Relief Grant Program, the Critically Overcrowded School Facilities Program, the School Facility Joint-Use Program, Career Technical Education Facilities Program, the Emergency Repair Program, and the Deferred Maintenance Program.
The SAB is the policy-level body for the programs administered by the Office of Public School Construction. The SAB meets monthly to apportion funds to school districts, act on appeals, and adopt policies and regulations as they pertain to the programs administered by the SAB.

Marbles have been very popular at our school since it opened. Kids can be seen before school, during their recesses, and after school out in the yard playing “Poison” a marble game that is played in the dirt. They are so popular that there are school rules just for marbles.
On Tuesday, October 21, Mountain Vista had a special visitor. Her name is “The Marble Lady.” Her other name is Cathy Runyan. She is known throughout the country. She came to our school to share her love of marbles with us. She gave 7 assemblies about the history of marbles, her interview from the Today Show, inventions made with marbles, and taught us the National Marble Tournament game called Ringer. She set up mats with hula hoops and let every child play the game Ringer during the assemblies! It was truly one of the best interactive assemblies. She even tied in positive character traits, which is a high priority here at Mountain Vista, by using “Kindness Marbles” to remind us to do at least one kind thing for another person each day.
During the same week, we had a marble fundraiser to raise money for the classrooms. We have sold over 425 bags of marbles! The students are so very excited and the classrooms will benefit, also!
Marbles are amazing little balls of glass. They are so simple in structure, but can be used to do mighty things. Many inventions included marbles, they teach kindness, bring together children who may not normally get together, teach patience, perseverance, and just bring joy to a child…or an adult. If you have not tried marbles, give it a shot! You may find like many of us that even a teacher, a parent, or a grandparent can enjoy the game. Marbles do not discriminate based on age, sex, size, athletic ability, or race. So knuckle down and have fun!
*We want to thank Cathy Runyan, “The Marble Lady” for all of her excitement and for her love of children and marbles. If you would like to contact her, she can be reached at themarblelady.com. We would also like to thank Peter Caperelli at landofmarbles.com for selling us all of the amazing marbles and sharing discounts with all of the students.

Innovative Public-Private Partnership to Provide 8 Megawatts of Renewable Power

Furthering his commitment to reduce California’s greenhouse gas emissions, Governor Schwarzenegger today announced the state has partnered with SunEdison to provide affordable solar power at 15 California State University (CSU) campuses and the CSU executive office. This innovative public-private partnership will protect the environment by providing a zero-emission 8 megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic power system to the California state university campuses.

“California is going green and we are doing it first and we are doing it fast,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “With the partnership being announced today between California and SunEdison, we are seeing more tangible results and more follow through in reducing our state’s carbon footprint. This partnership is a good deal for the state, the planet and our economy – all at no cost to taxpayers.”

The 8 MW of energy produced by the solar panels are expected to deliver approximately 12 million kilowatt hours of clean renewable energy in the first year of operation. This amount of solar generated electricity represents five percent of the entire CSU system’s yearly energy consumption. Over the life of the contract, the partnership will offset approximately 9,485 metric tons of carbon dioxide, which is the equivalent of removing 48,937 cars from the road.

New SunEdison solar panels will be installed on rooftops, atop parking canopies and in ground-mounted arrays at the following locations: CA Maritime Academy, Vallejo; CSU Bakersfield; CSU Channel Islands; CSU Chico; CSU Fullerton; CSU Humboldt; CSU Los Angeles; CSU Monterey Bay; CSU Pomona (Cal Poly); CSU Sacramento; CSU San Bernardino; CSU San Bernardino (Palm Desert): CSU San Francisco; CSU San Marcos; CSU Stanislaus; and, the CSU Office of the Chancellor, Long Beach.

“California's continued economic, environmental and social prosperity depends on sustainable energy and technology,” said CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed. “As the nation's largest university system, the CSU welcomes this opportunity to lead the way.” CONTINUED »
