To all girls interested in trying out for Volleyball on August 3rd, 2018.

    • Link Below In Attachments
    • Please wear athletic shoes and apparel for safety reasons. No low cut tank tops, no jean shorts, etc...
    • Make sure to hydrate yourself prior to tryout times as the weather can be very hot 
    • Eating meals is VERY important. Please make sure you eat prior to trying out as practices are very rigorous. If a coach feels the student athlete is experiencing a health concern, she will be asked to sit out and parents/guardians will be contacted. 
  • Schedule your physicals NOW! You WILL NOT be able to tryout until you have a physical on file. You can find these documents on School Loop
    • Link Below In Attachments
  • In order to tryout the student athlete must submit the following on their first day. If any of the paperwork is not completed the athlete will not be able to participate until all is turned in:
    • Physician signed physical form (page 9)
    • Athlete Participation Authorization (page 7)
    • Wilcox High School Athletic Policies (page 8)
    • Emergency Card (on School Loop website) 
  • For returning Wilcox students; if you do not have a 2.0 GPA at the end of the second semester for June 2018 you will not be eligible to play. Academic probation may be an option, however please refer to the “athlete packet” for further information in regards to the policies we have in place here at Wilcox.
    • Grades and points: A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, F = 0 (divide total points earned by the number of classes you were enrolled in to calculate GPA)
  • The athlete packet posted online provides details of expectations for student athletes, tryout guidelines and other highly useful information to read through. Please take a moment to review our policy and procedures. 

There will be 3 levels for our program: Varsity, Junior Varsity and a Freshmen team. All freshmen trying out will be a part of the freshmen team unless asked to move up (no freshmen will be cut). 

 

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. You can reach me at alujan@scusd.net during the summer.

Hello Fabulous Freshmen and Sensational Sophomore Parents!

 

 

We are in need of chaperones for the Junior/Senior Prom on Saturday, April 28th, at the Glass House in San Jose.  The hours are 8 pm to 12 midnight.  Any help is appreciated, even if you can only stay part of the time.

 

Enjoy getting a glimpse of our students being dressed to the nines and celebrating with their fellow upperclassmen.  Duties will be monitoring the refreshments, restrooms, and entrance areas.  You will not be on the dance floor.

 

(Junior and Senior parents, if your prom-attending child does not, by some miracle, object to your attendance, you are welcome to sign up!)

 

Please sign up here:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4ba9aa28a6fd0-prom1

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: 3/23/2018 11:43 AM

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 $5. No work permit is required to volunteer.
 

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).

Thursday, March 22, 2018, Wilcox H.S. CHAMPs students attended the Mission College "What's Cookin" Culinary Competition and College Tour. The competitors comprised of teams from the Fremont Union High School District and also our CHAMPs team representing SCUSD. There were a total of five teams who competed. The teams were tasked with creating four servings of a two course meal within sixty minutes, all while being evaluated for adherence to industry health and safety standards, time management, teamwork, leadership, and professional execution and plating of their dishes. Our CHAMPs emerged victorious and took 1st place! Our team had the support of Peterson M.S. and Buchser M.S. who were in attendance. Our CHAMP team comprised of Christian Burgoz (Senior), Felix Gyugyi (Senior), Cole Bay (Junior), and Sylvanus Fredson-Cole (Sophomore). They performed with the utmost professionalism and embodied what it means to be Charger Strong! Please congratulate our students for their accomplishment when you see them.

2018 Viral Video Contest - Responding to the fact that one in two young people will get a sexually transmitted disease (STD) by age 25 and most won't know it, the Get Yourself Tested &GYT) campaign is about creating a youth driven social movement around getting tested for STDs.  GYT encourages testing as an act of pride, not shame, and promotes an open dialogue about STDs by encouraging youth to get themselves tested and spread the word. 

 

The Santa Clara County Public Health Department's STD/HIV Prevention & Control is sponsoring a GYT themed video contest, The Viral Video Contest, for Santa Clara County high school students, in recognition of STD Awareness Month in April.  STD/HIV Prevention & Control is looking for youth to produce a unique video (30 - 90 seconds) directed at their peers in order to encourage and normalize STD & HIV testing.

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,

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.
