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 »

Two schools in Ventura County have teamed up to put more books in the hands of students and to create a larger student library for a new school designed specifically for students with autism. Michele Darden and Linda Goodwin, parents of students at Madrona Elementary School and Triton Academy, were the masterminds behind this creative collaborative project.

Every year, Madrona Elementary School hosts a fundraising book fair during their parent conference week. This year, Madrona Elementary School generously offered to make Triton Academy the beneficiary of their school’s donations during the “One for Books” fundraiser. Each classroom at Madrona has a “One for Books” collection jar and during the week of the book fair, the students bring in change for their classroom jar. There will be contests and prizes for the classes who collect the most money; all money collected at Madrona will directly benefit Triton Academy’s library. Triton Academy students also wanted to be part of this event; their students are participating in this fundraiser by donating their loose change, too. Triton Academy, now in their second year, is a school within the Ventura County Office of Education that utilizes evidenced-based educational practices for students with autism. CONTINUED »

SACRAMENTO – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell today announced 27 school districts will share $26.6 million in Professional Development in Reading for Special Education Teachers Pilot Program grants. The list of grantees is attached.
“There’s a critical need to provide professional development for special education teachers in California,” said O’Connell. “We must ensure that students receiving special education services are given the maximum access to a good education so they can reach a higher level of achievement and be well prepared for college or the world of work after high school. This grant will provide support to special education teachers so they can improve reading and language-art instruction to special education students and help them reach their full potential.”
Approximately 10 percent of California students are designated as needing special education services. However, according to the California Department of Education’s 2006 document, Developing Highly Qualified Teachers and Administrators Initiative, there is a critical shortage of qualified teachers in a number of fields, including special education. Between 14 percent and 49 percent of special education teachers are also underprepared, meaning they do not possess a full credential.
Carryover funds from the federal Reading First program provided funding for this competitive three-year Pilot Program grant. The grants were separated into two groups: Priority 1 grants provide funding to local educational agencies eligible but currently not participating in Reading First, to give professional development for special education teachers in reading for kindergarten through grade three. Priority 2 grants are for Reading First districts’ special education teacher professional development in kindergarten through grade twelve. The funds must be used to train and support these teachers in the use of reading/language arts instructional programs for students receiving special education services.
Eligible applicants included local educational agencies with a great need for special education teacher professional development. The goal is to provide students needing special education services with adequate reading instruction through core or intensive intervention programs so they will make progress toward grade-level reading proficiency, meet all reading/language arts goals of his or her Individualized Educational Program, and move closer to the proficiency level outlined in the California English Language Content Standards.
The grantees were selected based on the quality of their applications. The grantees will be held accountable for assisting special education teachers in fully implementing the requirements of the grant. The requirements include providing opportunities for special education teachers to learn how to deliver instruction to increase student progress, the grantee’s use of student assessments, monitoring of student academic progress, demonstrated leadership, professional development plan, and collaboration between general and special education staffs.

Homecoming week was a great success, and student participation was at a record high. All of the floats turned out wonderfully, although there was an upset with the Juniors beating the Seniors for the first time in about 20 years. The senior class did come out ahead in class points, but the juniors were close behind.
Santa Paula Week is the week after we return from our October break, and will include noon time activities, a rally, and a Halloween costume contest to “scare away the Cardinals”. The Santa Paula football game will be our first home game in quite some time, so be sure to show your support for our JV and Varsity teams.
On Tuesday the girls golf team had a match away at La Reina and girls volleyball game is scheduled to have a match against Santa Paula on Thursday.
The results are in, and last June 62 seniors qualified for the California Scholastic Federation and will hopefully be wearing the gold sash at graduation. CSF is made by getting As and Bs in core classes for the last five semesters, and in order to wear the sash and become a life member, a student must continue their excellent grades during their senior year.
The Drama Club and ASB are putting together a student Film Festival – high school students may submit a film that could win them a substantial scholarship. Clips from winning films will be shown at a gala event near the end of the school year that the community is encouraged to attend.
For more information, call the student store at 524-8491.
