Over the summer, Wilcox students are required to read books—the numbers of books and the titles are listed on the English Dept page. The assignments in the fall will vary, depending upon the course taken, so please be sure to check the lists carefully! Please help get the books from a library or bookstore,  then help your child make time to read them - a daily half-hour is perfect - and ask your child regularly about what’s happening. Parents, if you too read the assigned books, the experience will be especially rewarding—for both of you!

Reading the summer books will make your child a better reader, a better writer, a better critical thinker; enlarge his or her understanding of people and the world; and help him or her start strongly in English in the fall. And, of course, there are the adventures, discoveries, shocks, laughs, tears, terrors, and victories! Reading is sweet and intense.

 

Look in the Academics section, then in the English Dept page. Under Summer Reading, there are complete lists of books for all classes, including honors and AP.

Balloons are a type of marine debris that many people don’t think about. Often used for celebrations or to commemorate special events, balloons are frequently intentionally or accidentally released into the environment. Unfortunately, once they go up, they must also come down; balloons that are released into the air don’t just go away, they either get snagged on something such as tree branches or electrical wires, deflate and make their way back down, or rise until they pop and fall back to Earth where they can create a lot of problems. Balloon debris can be ingested by animals, many of which easily mistake it for real food, and can entangle wildlife, especially balloons with attached ribbons. Balloon debris can even have an economic impact on communities, contributing to dirty beaches which drive away tourists, or causing power outages from mylar balloons covered in metallic paint and their ribbons tangling in power lines.

 


Balloon debris is a national issue and unfortunately, the Mid-Atlantic is not immune. Over a period of five years (2010-2014), 4,916 pieces of balloon litter were found in Virginia by volunteers participating in the International Coastal Cleanup, with over 3,000 of those pieces found on ocean beaches. In 2014, 236 volunteers found over 900 balloons in the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia in a three-hour period. Recent surveys of remote islands on Virginia’s Eastern Shore documented up to 40 balloons per mile of beach. These statistics suggest that this Mid-Atlantic area is appropriate to research the balloon debris issue and to create an education and outreach program that could then be used in other states. So the Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program, with funding support from the NOAA Marine Debris Program, is doing just that. They’re exploring the issue of intentionally-released balloons and targeting that behavior through a social marketing campaign.

On Sunday, May 21st, Wilcox Football and Cheer will be hosting a Mattress Fundraiser in the high school cafeteria.
 
What is a Mattress Fundraiser?
 
Watch Video Explanation : bit.ly/mattressfundraiservideo  
 
 A Mattress Fundraiser is a one day event held in the cafeteria that allows customers in need of a mattress a great opportunity to save money on a new mattress AND support US! They have major manufactures like Simmons and go factory direct with the mattress that you love in any size you need it, made brand new and delivered to your door in about 3 weeks. Everything comes with full factory warranties just like you would get in a retail store. Since they don’t have the expenses associated with storefronts, they are able to save customers money and help us raise a lot of money at the same time.
 
Even if you don’t need a new mattress in your home, please share this with neighbors, coworkers, friends and family in benefit of the football and cheer programs!
 
Thanks for your continued support

Join us for a volunteer work day to Ulistac Natural Area on Wednesday February 22 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Help restore California Native Vegetation and preserve wildlife habitat.

DUTIES:  Volunteers will use hand tools (no power tools) to trim shrubs and to remove overgrown vines and shrubs.  Tarps will be available for volunteers to drag dead shrubs, pruned branches and clippings to the dumpster.  Volunteers will also remove any trash on the park grounds. 

QUALIFICATIONS:  The level of skill required varies from the ability to simply place trash in a bag, to heavier tasks that would require some previous knowledge and experience doing yard work.  There will be a short orientation (regarding the tasks and goals) that begins promptly at 9:00am.

DIRECTIONS:  Wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing. Be prepared for all types of weather.  Use sunscreen as the volunteer effort will be outdoors.  Hand tools will be provided.  Please bring gloves and eye protection, although some gloves and eye protection (goggles) will be provided on site.  Bring water and stay hydrated throughout the day to avoid dehydration.

If you are interested in helping us on February 22nd  please contact me at 408-615-2249 to register.

Tuesday, November 8, 2016 will be the Presidential General Election.  Wilcox High School is pleased to participate in the Santa Clara County registrar of Voters Office’s Student Election Officer Program where qualified and interested students may participate in working at a voting precinct. Interested students should complete an application form with required permission slips, and submit them to the Registrar of Voters Office before October 14, 2016.

 

For 18 years, the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters Office has offered qualified high school students the opportunity to learn about and participate in our democratic process by serving as an Election Officer.  While students may learn about democracy second hand from a book or in a classroom, the opportunity to serve as a Student Election Officer on Election Day is an invaluable, real life experience that will bring awareness to young Americans regarding the importance of voting as well as to help lay the groundwork for a lifetime of civic involvement and responsibility.  We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications from High School Students for the June 7th, Presidential Primary Election.

 

Student Election Officer Program (High School Only):

The Santa Clara County Student Election Officer Program provides High School students with the opportunity to serve their community, experience democracy first hand and earn up to $145.00 or community service credits.  Student Election Officers are required to attend a training class and work on Election Day as an official member of a Precinct Board. 

 

To qualify a student must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident
  • Be at least 16 years old on Election Day
  • Have a GPA of 2.5 or higher
  • Obtain written permission from parent/guardian
  • Obtain written permission from school
  • Agree to complete Election Officer training
  • Agree to work on Election Day

 

Students participating in this program are considered volunteers, not employees, so work permits are not required.

 

Wilcox requirements are:

  • Provide a current (unofficial) copy of transcripts showing current GPA
  • Obtain permission from Mr. Melligan (B-108)
  • Obtain permission from any/all classroom teachers that this activity will interfere with on November 8, 2016

For more information contact:

 

Mr. M Melligan, Wilcox High School Student Election Officer Coordinator

Room B108  408 423-2516

mmelligan@scusd.net

 

POSITIONS ARE LIMITED.  PLEASE APPLY EARLY!

Once your application is received in our office and approved for placement, an Election Specialist will contact you via the phone number or email provided on your application regarding your Election Day polling place assignment and training class. Once contacted, you will receive a Notice of Appointment letter in the mail confirming your training and Election Day assignments along with the name and phone number of your Election Specialist, Precinct Inspector (Election Day Supervisor), and other Clerks (coworkers).  

Please hold onto your Notice of Appointment Letter, as it contains critical information you will need.  

 

To apply:

  • Complete pages 2 and 3 of the application form.
  • Get parent/guardian permission (DO NOT forge signatures).  Seniors that are 18 years-old MUST get parental permission.
  • Get permission from classroom teachers for any classes missed by this activity.

How Do I Prepare for My Election Day Assignment?

Published on: 9/12/2013 3:30 PM

Arrange transportation and directions 
Know where you are going and how you will get there well before your hands-on training date and Election Day.

Attend the Hands-on Training
The hands-on training will give you all of the skills to successfully fulfill your Election Day duties. Show up on time and sign in immediately for credit.  If, for a valid reason, you are not able to make it to the training class as scheduled, call your Election Specialist to reschedule. All Election Officers must complete training before Election Day.

Call your Precinct Inspector one week before the Election
Introduce yourself and let them know you will be working on Election Day.  Find out the time of the Election eve setup, and let them know if you will be attending.  Setup takes less than an hour and is optional for students, but encouraged and highly recommended.  

If you are no longer able to serve at any time for any reason
Contact your Election Specialist and Precinct Inspector immediately. Prompt notification will insure full staffing for the precinct, and may allow another student the opportunity to participate.

 

Student Conduct Guidelines

Published on: 4/26/2013 5:39 PM

Dress   
Dress appropriately and maintain personal hygiene.  Wear layered clothing, as temperature conditions vary during the day.  You are representing your school and community, so clothing that identifies your school is encouraged.

Demeanor  
Treat everyone with respect and dignity.  You are there to work, and your focus should remain on the task at hand.  You are representing Santa Clara County as a non-partisan Student Election Officer.  Commentary or discussions of a political nature are not permitted within the polling place.

Electronic Devices  
The use of personal cell phones or any other personal electronic devices for any reason in a polling place is against the law and strictly forbidden at all times.  Failure to comply will result in immediate dismissal.  You are welcome to use any device outside the polling place during your breaks and mealtimes.

Cancellations  
If you are unable to meet your responsibilities as a Student Election Officer, for any reason, please contact your Precinct Inspector and your Election Specialist as soon as possible.  Failure to do so could leave your co-workers understaffed and damage the opportunity of future students to participate in the program.

Remember  
Do not be intimidated or hesitant because you are a student.  You are a fully trained member of the Election Board.  If proper procedures are not being followed, please speak up to your Precinct Inspector, or if necessary contact 408.299.POLL (7655).    

 

What Happens after Election Day?

Published on: 4/26/2013 5:39 PM

​​Overview
The morning after the Election, our office begins the process of verifying and generating the payroll for all Election staffing.  

Attendance
We furnish every school principal and coordinator with a post election attendance report to monitor and verify participation along with hours worked.  

Stipend Check
All stipends are determined from the payroll form and if necessary, additional phone calls for information.  You should expect to receive your stipend check in the mail at the address provided on your Student Application, approximately 3 to 4 weeks after Election Day.

Stipend Amounts
Students are paid a stipend of $115 for a full day, and $57.50 for a half day.  You receive an additional $20 for completing the training and $10 for attending the Election eve setup.  Bilingual Spanish Vietnamese, Mandarin, Cantonese or Tagalog Students may be paid an additional $10.
 
Community Service Credits
You can choose Community Service credits in lieu of a stipend.  If you need a letter detailing your volunteer hours, please contact the Student Election Officer Program Coordinator at high.school@rov.sccgov.org or 408.282.3091.

Problems with Stipend Check
If you do not receive your stipend check within one month of the Election, or if there is any other problem with your check, please contact our office at 408.299.POLL (7655).  

About the Student Program

Published on: 4/26/2013 5:39 PM

Since 2006, more than 6,000 Students from 93 High Schools have participated in the Santa Clara County Student Election Officer Program.  None of this would be possible without the Principals, Administrators, Teachers and Parents who place their trust in the promise of the Student Program and go above and beyond to bring this opportunity to their students and children.  Thank You!

Here are a few of the many comments we’ve received about the Student Program:

“This field trip is a great opportunity for all students.  The experience teaches them about the election process and the importance of voting.”  Principal

“They learned so much more from their participation than merely reading and discussing the process in class.  I am sure this will result in them remaining active citizens in a democratic society.”  Teacher

“The Student Program gets students involved and out in the community.” Teacher

“Being an Election Officer was an amazing experience.  I felt more involved and the experience urged me to become a better informed citizen.”  Student 2 Elections  

“This experience helped me to decide on a career in public service.  There is so much to do and I am looking forward to getting started.”  Student 3 Elections

“I had a lot of fun and it was a great experience.”  Student 1 Election

“We had 3 students who were all hard working, bright, competent, sociable, friendly and funny.  They made the experience a delight!”  Precinct Inspector, 6 Elections

“The students are a great support to our Elections, and they receive valuable life experience as a part of the team.  I hope the Student Program continues on all Elections in the future.”  Precinct Inspector, 10 Elections

Please make sure to read through all the material as it provides important information for the athletic programs here at Wilcox High School. All mandatory forms can be found here:

 

https://wilcox.schoolloop.com/cms/nothing?d=x&group_id=1368365213144

 

Proper attire MUST be worn for the safety of our interested students; athletic clothing and shoes. Knee pads are not mandatory however can be helpful. We recommend that players do not purchase specific volleyball attire (ex: shoes, shorts, knee pads, etc) until they have made the program. Such items can be expensive and we would like to save costs as much as possible.

 

The volleyball tryout process is very vigorous and at times difficult for those who have not experienced high levels of play. The coaching staff HIGHLY recommends that the girls properly eat and hydrate themselves to prevent possible exhaustion and fatigue. Essential nutrition assists in the performance levels as well.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Coach Lujan for varsity and Coach Nuti for junior varsity:

 

alujan@scusd.net

Thank you and see you soon,

Coach Lujan
