On September 28, 2008, at 1:00 p.m., the Fillmore Police Department’s Citizen’s Patrol awarded a $1,000 college scholarship to local teenager Brianna Rojo.
The police volunteers at the Fillmore Police Station selected Brianna as the 2008 recipient. She is an 18 year-old Fillmore citizen who is a 2008 graduate of Fillmore High School.
Brianna has volunteered throughout the Fillmore community during her entire childhood. She was an active member of the High School ASB (Student Body), and was always there to volunteer for a community event.
The Citizen’s Patrol volunteers work hard to raise money to support local youth. Their goal is to help with the student’s college ambitions. They selected Brianna for her eager pursuit of a degree in nursing at the University of San Francisco, where she starts this week as a freshman.
Brianna wants to return to Fillmore and give back as a local nurse.
She is the epitome of a dedicated citizen and it is easy to see why she was selected.
Officer Preparing Release: Captain Tim Hagel

 


 

All schools in the Fillmore Unified School District will be joining schools from around the world to celebrate International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 8, 2008.

Approximately 3,500 students in the District will be encouraged to walk to school with parents, teachers and community leaders.

In the U.S., International Walk to School Day is expected to include 5,000 schools from all 50 states. Walkers from the U.S. will join children and adults in 40 countries around the world.

Walk to School events work to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and the broader community.

The event is being organized by Dave MacDonald and Tricia Godfrey from Fillmore Middle School and is supported by staff from all sites. In addition, the Fillmore’s City Council and the Board of Education created and supported a proclamation in support of Walk to School Day on October 8.

Urges districts to meet deadline or funds may be returned to federal government
Superintendent Jack-O'Connell
Superintendent Jack-O'Connell
California State Superintendent of Public Instruction

SACRAMENTO – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell today announced 92 local educational agencies will receive nearly $80.5 million in Title I Program Improvement Corrective Action grants following the enactment of the state budget. The list of grantees is attached.

“Now that the long state budget stalemate has passed, we can focus our efforts on ensuring districts receive this funding for intervention services,” said O’Connell. “Because of the budget delay, more than $20 million is still at risk of reversion to the federal government. I have instructed staff at the California Department of Education to do everything possible to assist local educational agencies to properly account for expenditures made for intervention services, for which this federal money was intended.”

O’Connell recommended corrective actions to the State Board of Education in March for local educational agencies (school districts and county offices of education) that were identified as being in the third year of Program Improvement under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. The corrective action included instituting and fully implementing curriculum based on state academic content standards and achievement standards. In addition, O’Connell recommended differentiated technical assistance. Certain local educational agencies will work with District Assistance and Intervention Teams to analyze data, make recommendations to improve student achievement, and provide the grantee with technical assistance to fully implement the corrective action and any recommendations made by their District Assistance and Intervention Team.

Originally, 97 local educational agencies were recommended for corrective action. However, two school districts merged into one and the funding formula approved by the state Legislature in the education budget trailer bill allocated the funding based on the number of schools a local educational agency had in Program Improvement. Four districts identified for corrective action did not have any schools in Program Improvement and, therefore, were not eligible to receive this funding. CONTINUED »

SACRAMENTO – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell today announced that the State Allocation Board (SAB) awarded more than $153 million to 62 local educational agencies throughout the state for the construction, modernization, and emergency repair of schools. The list of awardees is attached.
“I want to thank voters who have generously supported bond measures and the state that has designated funds specifically to improve our aging and crumbling school facilities,” said O’Connell. “Maintenance of our schools requires constant attention to assure our students learn in an environment that is modern, safe, and secure.”
O'Connell is a member of the SAB that today voted to approve more than $148 million to 48 school districts and a county office of education for the construction and modernization of schools. Also, more than $5 million was awarded to 14 school districts for emergency repairs. The SAB also approved a final apportionment for one project that received approval from the Proposition 47 Charter School Facilities Program for Animo Leadership Charter High (Centinela Valley Union High).
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, Charter School Facilities Program, Overcrowded Relief Grant Program, Critically Overcrowded School Facilities Program, School Facility Joint-Use Program, Career Technical Education Facilities Program, Emergency Repair Program, and 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.

San Cayetano Elementary School hosted Mobile Marine Lab on Sept. 14th and 15th. Each class got to spend 30 minutes learning about and holding various sea specimens. The specimens are collected and released each day at the harbor. Dirk from Mobile Marine brought an octopus, various starfish, hermit crabs and colorful small fish. This was a wonderful hands-on experience all about science.

We have had a great homecoming week so far at Fillmore High School, and we’re only halfway through! Activities have been planned for every day of the week, and although some changes have been made due to our new track and field, it looks like this Homecoming will set the bar high for future years.
The theme of this year’s Homecoming is “Its Always Fun and Games in Flashland”. The floats will all include some sort of board game, and they are looking great so far. The students have been working very hard, and the freshmen class has persevered despite being without a truck for the first night of float-building. Chaperones are always welcome at the bus-garage, so if you have a student at FHS and are available anytime between 3 and 9pm, we would love to have you.
The Homecoming Court for this year was announced Monday night at the kick-off party for float building. The freshman princess is Anissa Magdeleno and the freshman Prince is Robert Bonilla. Angelica Gonzalez and Angel Barajas are the Sophomore Princess and Prince, and the Junior Prince and Princess are Anthony Chavez and Victoria Ayala. Jill Wilber and Nathan Ibarra, Colin Cone and Rebecca Herrera, and Brina Suttle and Ralph Sandoval are all on the Senior Court, but the winners of King and Queen will not be announced until the rally on Friday.
The annual homecoming parade will be held at 3:00pm on Friday, and this will be one of the few times that the public will be able to see the floats up close, as they are no longer able to drive on the track at the football game. The floats will still be at the football game, but they will be on display only.
Be sure to come to the game on Friday, especially if you are alumni! Football games are a great way to support our schools, and all of the proceeds from getting into the football game go back to the Athletics program. The Lions Club will be making their amazing tri-tip sandwiches, and the Junior Class will be working the snack bar to raise money for prom. This will be our last home game for quite some time, so don’t miss out!

To conclude the assembly, Rachael and Sofia introduced the Attendance Award prizes. Each month all students who are at school, on time, are given an orange raffle ticket.
