Message from Princess Project below:

 

My name is Katie Matice and I am a board member of Princess Project Silicon Valley.  We are a philanthropy who provides free prom dresses to under served teens in the Bay Area.  We've been in existence for over ten years and last year gave away over 1000 dresses!

 

I am asking for your help in spreading the news about our organization.

 

We host dress giveaway days in March at our donated retail space in Mountain View.  Our inventory of over 8000 dresses ensures teens will find the perfect dresses.  We are blessed by the generosity of local dress merchants such as Trudy's who donated over 600 dresses this year.

 

I'm including our website link and attached flyer:

princessprojectsiliconvalley.org

 

I'd appreciate your help and guidance on how to share our offerings to your students.   

Thank you,

Katie Matice

Dear Families,

Wilcox PTSA Parent Ed is starting 2018 with another parent program.

This program is a deeply meaningful and educational program for all our families, community and our current or soon to be teen drivers. It is a program we feel should be seen every year by all our families and friends. The program is in partnership with California Highway Patrol

 

IMPACT: Teen Drivers 

Join us on Wednesday January 31st, 2018 in the Wilcox High School Theater at 7-8:30pm. 

 

Learn about:

- teen driving requirements and limitations and distracted driving in this day and age of electronic devices.::

-Strategies to keep your kids safe on the roads

-Graduated Drivers Licensing (GDL) laws 

-How YOU can help stop the #1 killer of teens in America — reckless and distracted driving

 

This is a free event! Parents and Students are all welcome.

please RSVP to save your seat at  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/impact-teen-drivers-tickets-42159659677

 

 

Facts to consider before driving:

-You need 50 hours of supervised driving experience with an adult to obtain a California driver's license.

-It takes only 6 hours of supervised behind the wheel experience with a certified driving instructor to get a California driver’s license. Yet, a manicurist must complete 400 hours under supervision to be licensed in the state of California.

-Teen drivers are at the highest risk.The crash rate (per mile driven) for 16 year olds is four times that of adult drivers.

-Having passengers is a serious distraction for teen drivers. Carrying 3 or more passengers increases the risk of a crash for 16 and 17 year olds three-fold compared to driving alone.

 

Thank you!

Attention Wilcox Parents and Students,

 

We were informed today that the new HAWK pedestrian beacons will be turned on by the city tonight.This is a huge improvement in student safety, but will slow down the flow in the parking lot as the community gets used to the new traffic conditions. Wilcox administrators will be at the beacons at 7:30 AM and at the 12:20 release teaching our students how to properly use the beacons. We would like to strongly encourage any parent that drives their student to school to get to Wilcox early. Construction is ongoing and Monroe will only be one lane both ways. We are anticipating very bad traffic in the morning and in the afternoon. 

 

We are excited that the City has partnered with Santa Clara Unified School District to add this new safety feature for our students. Knowing how to approach the beacons is an important educational moment for the whole community since the HAWK lights are in several places around the City and often an unfamiliar type of traffic signal. The City of Santa Clara has prepared an educational video and educational flyer that will show both pedestrians and motorists how to approach the beacons. This information can also be found on our School Loop homepage.

Attention Junior Students and Parents-

 

SCUSD is now paying for the SAT for all junior students! More information to follow. Below are some of the available details-

Who: All Junior Students (an exam will be ordered for them, paid for by the district)

 

What: SAT Reasoning with Essay

 

When: During the school day on Wednesday, March 7th 2018 from approximately 7:30am – 1:30pm. Specific start and end times TBA. This will be a regular school day for all 9th, 10th and 11th grade students.

 

Where: Your home school

 

Why: Last year the Santa Clara School Board approved funding to provide College Board and ACT exams for first time test takers.

 

 

Wilcox data shows that the vast majority of sophomores have the desire to be 4 year college ready when they graduate. Offering the School Day SAT helps us ensure that we can provide this opportunity to all of our students. Wilcox has been paying for PSAT for 10th graders for the last 4 years. Offering the SAT exam to all juniors allows Wilcox to complete a major part of this 4 year college ready pathway.

 

If you have questions please contact your student’s counselor.

 

If you have already paid for the March administration of the SAT please contact Chandra Henry at chenry@scusd.net

Calculating Your Score

Because there’s no penalty for guessing, your raw score is the number of questions you answered correctly. Raw scores are converted to scores on a scale of 160 to 760 using a process called equating. Equating adjusts for slight differences in difficulty between various versions of the test (such as versions taken on different days).

The College Board uses equating to make sure there’s no advantage in taking the test on a particular day. A score of 400, for instance, on one day’s test means the same thing as a 400 on a test taken on a different day—even though the questions are different.

Making Sense of the Numbers

Score ranges, mean (average) scores, benchmarks, and percentiles can be used to see if you’re on track for college readiness.

For the next few years, norm groups for the score ranges, mean scores, and percentiles described below will be derived from research data, not the prior year’s test-taking populations. A norm group, also called a reference population, is the group whose data your results are compared to.

Score Ranges

Tests can’t measure exactly what you know, and many factors can affect your score. After all, no two days are the same, and if you were to take the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10 three times in a week or once a week for a month, your scores would vary.

That’s why it’s helpful to think of each score as a range that extends from a few points below to a few points above the score earned. Score ranges show how much your score might change with repeated testing, assuming that your skill level remains the same.

Mean (Average) Scores

Your score report will show you the mean, or average, scores earned by typical U.S. test-takers per grade. Unless your score is much lower than average, you’re probably developing the kinds of reading, writing and language, and math skills you’ll need in college.

College Readiness Benchmarks

You’ll see a benchmark for each section of the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10. Benchmarks are the scores that represent college readiness. In other words, if you score at or above the benchmark, you’re on track to be ready for college when you graduate high school.

If you score below the benchmark, you still have time to work on your skills. Use the detailed feedback in your online score report to see which skills need the most improvement.

Percentile Ranks

A percentile rank is a number between 1 and 99 that shows how you scored compared to other students. It represents the percentage of students whose scores fall at or below your score.

For example, a 10th-grade student in the 57th percentile scored higher than or equal to 57 percent of 10th-graders.

A large population of already vulnerable monarch butterflies are stuck in Canada and in the Northeast. They are late on their migration south _ they should be in Texas at this time _ because unusually warm weather delayed their flight and now winds and other factors aren't making it easy or maybe even possible to go south before the coming frost. (Darlene Burgess via AP)

 

Monarch butterflies, those delicate symbols of spring and summer, should mostly be in Texas by now, winging their way to Mexico for the winter. But Darlene Burgess keeps seeing colorful clusters of them — and she lives in Canada. "As nice as this is to see, I really wish I wouldn't see it because they're running out of time," said Burgess, who does evening monarch counts at Point Pelee National Park in Canada. "It's really not good for them." It's not just Canada. Swarms have been seen elsewhere, including near Cape May , New Jersey, at levels more normal for late September and early October.

Basketball, soccer, volleyball, water polo, badminton, etc...

 

Was your answer yes? If so, do you know that proceeds from the Snack Bar at home football games helps pay for all officials for all sports at Wilcox. This means that keeping the snack bar open is very important but we can't do it if we don't have the volunteers to work it. So please, give us some of your time and come out this Friday for the big games. Any amount of time is greatly appreciated. Please use the link below to sign up.

 

 What do we do at the Snack Bar? We sell waters, sodas, nachos, hot dogs/hamburgers, candy, and much more. 

 

Volunteer activities: 
- Food Prep (putting hot dogs in buns and wrapping them, putting cheese on nachos, etc.) 
- Cashier (must feel comfortable working with money and making change) 
- Runners (get fo! od items from the various stations and give them to the cashier to provide to the customer after payment has been made)
- Set up and Closing /Clean up (arrive before we open to prepare for the night or arrive close to the end so we can clean up).

 

Help is needed at the following times:

3:15 to 5:00 pm - Set-up volunteer (getting out items needed for snack bar open, chopping onions, making nacho cheese, heating chili, etc.)
4:30 to 7:15 pm - volunteer during JV game
7:00 to 10:00 pm- volunteer during Varsity game

 9:00 to 10:00 pm- Closing/Clean up

 

However, if you can only help an hour, we'll take it! If you cannot work the entire shift, please let us know the time you will be there in the 'notes' column.

 We would love to see all parents helping out. Students can help too with food prep, set up and as runners. Helping us can go towards your Wilcox volunteer hours!

 

Dads, Grads and Moms (DGM) is a wonderful organization that supports ALL teams, clubs and groups at Wilcox. PTSA as you ! may know, is the largest child advocacy organization in the U.S and provider of funds for the many needs at Wilcox for all students. :)

~How do Social Media Pressures affect our relationships?

~Video game addiction and violence... Are we at risk?

Hello Wilcox Families,

 

Friday, October 13th is our next home football game against Palo Alto. We really need your help in the Snack Bar. If you can come, please sign up using the link below.

 

What do we do at the Snack Shack? We sell waters, sodas, nachos, hot dogs/hamburgers, candy, and much more. 

 

Volunteer activities: 
- Food Prep (putting hot dogs in buns and wrapping them, putting cheese on nachos, etc.) 
- Cashier (must feel comfortable working with money and making change) 
- Runners (get food items from the various stations and give them to the cashier to provide to the customer after payment has been made)
- Set up and Closing /Clean up (arrive before the shack opens to prepare for the night or arrive close to the end so we can clean the shack).

 

 

Help is needed at the following times:

 

3:15 to 5:00 pm - Set-up volunteer (getting out items needed for snack bar open, chopping onions, making nacho cheese, heating chili, etc.)

 

4:30 to 7:15 pm - volunteer during JV game

 

7:00 to 10:00 pm- volunteer during Varsity game

 

 9:00 to 10:00 pm- Closing/Clean up

 

If you can only help an hour, we'll take it! If you cannot work the entire shift, please let us know the time you will be there in the 'notes' column.

 

ALL proceeds earned at the games goes directly back to ALL students (25% PTSA, 25% DGM and 50% ASB which pays for the refs for ALL sports). Therefore, we would love to see all parents helping in the snack bar. Students can help too with food prep, set up and as runners. Helping us can go towards your Wilcox volunteer hours so come on out!

 

Dads, Grads and Moms (DGM) is a wonderful organization that supports ALL teams, clubs and groups at Wilcox. PTSA as you may know, is the largest child advocacy organization in the U.S and provider of funds for the many needs at Wilcox for all students. :)

 

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Allison Moorwood

There are several DACA-related meetings and clinics coming up that we have included below. If you, or anyone you know, would benefit from these meetings, please help spread the word.

Essentially, the recently announced end to the DACA program means the following:

  1. DACA status is still valid until its expiration date.
  2. No new DACA applications will be accepted.
  3. DACA issuances and work permits expiring between now and March 5, 2018 must be submitted for renewal by October 5, 2017
  4. Advance Parole to travel abroad is no longer available.

DACA Information Meetings and Clinics


Again, any DACA recipient whose work permit will expire between now and March 2018, must apply for a 2-year renewal by Oct 5. The cost to renew the application is $495, but there are scholarships available through most of the above clinics to help with that fee.

On September 5, the Trump administration announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) is ending. DACA has provided safety and security to 800,000 young Dreamers, who now face uncertain futures in the U.S., the country they call home.

 

Mission Asset Fund (missionassetfund.org), a San Francisco-based nonprofit with a long history of supporting Dreamers, is now providing $495 scholarships so DACA recipients can safely renew their status by the October 5 deadline.

 

Please share this opportunity widely with your networks. We don’t want cost to keep any Dreamer from renewing their DACA status. 

 

Dreamers can apply for scholarship at LC4DACA.org and receive a check made out to the Department of Homeland Securitywithin 48 hours.  Contactprograms@missionassetfund.org with any questions.

"Water Well Project in Ethiopia"

 

Dear Wilcox Families: New Life Campus Outreach Club is currently gathering up gently used clothing and other items through Saver's Thrift Store. Our goal is to gather up 400 bags (the 13-gallon white garbage type bags) our profit will be based on the weight of each bag. With 400 bags- we would profit approx. $1,000.00! Saver's would then send a check to 4others, the organization that will use the money to help build a water well near Ambo, Ethiopia. Our club sponsors a little girl from that area through the same organization. This is a GREAT way to do a little Fall clean-up in your closets and drawers. In reality, that unused coat or pair of pants may help to bring life-saving water to an area where water borne disease is common. If we can all pitch in something, it will get us closer to our goal!! PS: If you don't have enough to fill a bag, a partially filled one would be great also; I can combine later. Small household items may be boxed. If you do have donations, please have your student bring the bag/s to the ASB. If you have a larger quantity of items- please contact me, and I could pick the items up at your home.The drive will continue through September. Thanks and God bless! Kim Tracy, club adviser

 

* Here is a list of items we're collecting:

 

CLOTHING, SHOES, BEDDING/TOWELS, ACCESSORIES- purses, scarfs, etc, CD'S, DVD'S, BOOKS, ELECTRICAL ITEMS, TOYS AND GAMES, KITCHEN ITEMS, KNICK-KNACKS- vases, picture frames, etc. AND SPORTING GOODS

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.
