    • Conditioning sessions will follow open gym Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30PM-4:30PM in the fitness room
    • Please wear athletic shoes and apparel for safety reasons. No low cut tank tops, no jean shorts, etc...
  • 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

  • First day of tryouts will be Friday, August 3rd. Time is still TBD and a follow up School Loop post will be up soon. Check back for updates. Remember no physical = no trying out

You may vote in this election if you are at least 18 years-old, a U.S. citizen, a California resident, and legally registered to vote.

 

Below is the information on how to register to vote prior to the June Primary Election, with the registration link at the bottom.  

 

If you are under 18 years-old, you may pre-register to vote once you turn 16 years of age, and meet the other voting requirements.  The link below will allow you to pre-register now and be eligible to vote when you turn 18.

 

 

Please do NOT use this form to register or re-register to vote if you are enrolled in a confidential address program such as Safe at Home. If sharing your address could put you in life-threatening danger, you may be eligible to register to vote confidentially.

 

For more information, contact the Safe at Home program at (877) 322-5227 or visit www.sos.ca.gov/registries/safe-home/.

If this deadline has passed:

  • You can submit an application and it will be processed for future elections.
  • You have the opportunity to “conditionally” register to vote and vote provisionally at your local county elections office. Contact your local county elections official for more information or visit Conditional Voter Registration.

If you recently registered online, please wait at least 24 hours before checking your registration status.

 

What You Will Need

To register online you will need

Your information will be provided to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to retrieve a copy of your DMV signature.

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).

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. We are now focusing for our upcoming FCCLA state level competition end of April where our CHAMPs and Fashion students will be competing against schools from all over California.

2018 Viral Video Contest

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.

Princess Project: Provides Free Prom Dresses

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,

PTSA Parent Program - Teen Driving

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!

New Pedestrian HAWK Beacons

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.

SAT School Day

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

PSAT RESULTS DEC. 11

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.

Misplaced monarchs: Clusters of butterflies stuck up north


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.

- 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

~How many of you feel the frustration of wanting time with your child but competing with screen time and social media ?

~What is the impact of this drug-like /Dopamine effect on development of the teenage brain?

~How do Social Media Pressures affect our relationships?

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

~How do we as families find balance in all this?

 

The film viewing will be followed by two separate discussions: 

One for students led by Sharon Kwan, Wilcox Wellness Counselor 

& one for parents, led by Betty Sustaita, Wilcox Community Health Outreach Worker.

 

This is a free event! Please bring your students! Open to SCUSD and the community!

DACA Resource.

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.

Help New Life Campus Outreach club to fund a water well in Ethiopia!

"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

 

*A tax receipt is available upon request

Summer Reading for All Classes

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.

Celebrate Your Graduate, But Ditch the Balloons

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.

MATTRESS FUNDRAISER - SUNDAY 5/21
Parents
 
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

Student Election Officers needed for Nov. 8, 2016 Presidential General Election

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

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.

  • Provide approval and assignment to Wilcox Attendance Office, and all classroom teachers prior to November 8, 2016.

What Duties Will I Be Expected to Perform on E-Day?

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

Arrive on time to open the Polls.
All election officers should be at the polling place by 6:00 AM, to prepare for the 7:00 AM opening of the polls.  Sign the payroll form when you arrive.  Bring your Election Officer Manual and Notice of Appointment letter.

Assist voters.
Your job is to provide quality service to the voters.  Receive and assist all voters and co-workers with respect. Wear your ID for easy identification.

Questions and problems.
If you are not sure of something, it is important you ask for help.  Consult the Precinct Inspector, or your Training Manual. 

Closing the Polls
At 8:00 PM the polling place is closed to voters. Voters in line will vote, and then the Precinct Board will proceed with the closing tasks. Closing usually takes approximately 90 minutes, but may run longer.

Deliver ballots to Return Center
Your Precinct Inspector will be notified ahead of time if a Courier Team is assigned to pickup and return your ballots.  If a Courier Team is not assigned, you may be asked to accompany the Precinct Inspector to the Return Center.

Provide feedback.
Feedback and suggestions are welcomed and encouraged.  Your Precinct will have a yellow feedback form and a postage paid envelope for your thoughts.

Breaks
Precinct Inspectors assign 15 minute breaks along with an hour lunch and half hour dinner for all full-day Election Specialists.  Food and drinks are not provided.

 

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

“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

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

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:

Women's Tennis Updates - Mid Summer

Ladies:

 

I apologize for the late notice about the tennis clinic scheduled for this week.  Due to some unforeseen obstacles, I was not able to put together and schedule the tennis clinic as planned.  However, I just wanted to remind everyone who plans to try out for the team this coming year that the first day of tryouts is Friday, 8/5/16 at 3:00 P.M. at the tennis courts.  All students must have completed their physical, emergency, and athletic forms by that date and bring them with them in order to try out for the team.  Please refer to the link in order to download the emergency and athletic forms.  I'm still working on getting the tennis courts open for some open tennis time before the start of practice.  As soon as I know something, I will let you know.  In the meantime, enjoy the rest of summer.

AP Euro Summer Support Classes

If you are taking AP European History in the 2016-2017 school year, you are invited to attend the two AP European History support sessions that will be held this summer.

 

On Monday 6/27 from 9-10:30am in the Science Lecture Hall, we will be discussing primary source documents and how to analyze them, which is a skill that is required for success in any AP history class. On Tuesday 6/28 from 9-10:30am in the Science Lecture Hall, we will be looking at strategies for successfully understanding the content of AP Euro, including how to take effective notes and navigate the textbook.

 

The classes are not mandatory, but they are highly recommended for success in AP Euro, especially if this is your first time taking an AP class!

 

I hope to see you there!

 

Thanks,

Mr. Soykin

Pet for the Summer

It is that time of year when I try to find foster homes for my classroom pets for the summer. This makes for a great opportunity to have a trial run at caring for a pet with minimal obligation on your part. They are very easy to care for and you can easily leave them for up to a week. If you are interested, please let me know. First come, first serve:

 

1) Box Turtle (terrestrial) "Charlie" 

 

2) Bearded Dragon "Toothless"

 

They both have fairly large habitats and so a large vehicle would be needed for transport. If you would like to check them out or know more about how to care for them, just let me know or stop by S102.

 

Thanks in advance,

Mrs. Slate

Per parent request we have created a CAC sub-committee to continue the topic of "Anti-bullying and Inclusion" (A/I) pertaining to students with special needs.  This group will focus on a program to address these issues for implementation to our schools. We have been discussing the Circle of Friends program (www.circleofriends.org) and have proposed to give a presentation during a SCUSD Board meeting (date pending).
 
The CAC A/I sub-committee will be meeting Tuesday, January 12th, Adult Ed Campus, 1840 Benton Street, Santa Clara, room L3 at 6:30pm. This is the same location as the other CAC meetings, we will just be meeting on Tuesday evenings vs Wednesdays.
 
Our next CAC meeting will be Wednesday, January 20th, Adult Ed Campus, room L3 at 6;30pm.  The topic will be "Assistive Technology" presented by a specialist from Parents Helping Parents (php.com).  This informative workshop will introduce everything you need to know about Assistive Technology and how it can benefit your student in school.  You do not want to miss this presentation!
 
Please RSVP to both of these meetings so we will have a sufficient seating arrangement.  Also, remember that High School students are always welcomed to attend all of our meetings. It's a great way for them to learn about self-advocacy.
 
Wishing you Happy Holidays and I am looking forward to seeing you at our meetings in the New Year!
 
Sincerely,
Retta Conley Robertson
SCUSD CAC Vice-chair, parent voluntee

Reunión de padres EL el 21 de octubre, 6:30 pm, Sala de R206

Estudiantes de inglés (EL) son estudiantes que hablan un idioma distinto del Inglés en el hogar, o estudiantes cuyo idioma principal de los padres no es el Inglés. Se invita a todos los padres de los estudiantes EL para asistir a una reunión el Miércoles, 21 de octubre 2015 en la R206 (edificio de 3 pisos que alberga ASB). Traducción español estará disponible.


El propósito de la reunión es informar a EL padres de las oportunidades y servicios que están a disposición de sus estudiantes. También, EL padres tendrán la oportunidad de votar por los miembros del Comité de Estudiantes de Inglés (ELAC), un grupo de padres y personal de la escuela que asesora al director y al personal sobre el programa y los servicios de la escuela para los estudiantes EL. (Estos incluyen, pero no se limitan a, los programas y las intervenciones de instrucción, los usos de los datos de rendimiento escolar, maestros, personal y capacitación de los padres para satisfacer las necesidades de los estudiantes de inglés). El ELAC también asesora al Consejo Escolar (SSC) sobre el desarrollo del Plan Escolar Único para el Rendimiento Académico (SPSA). El Wilcox SPSA normalmente asigna fondos para apoyar a los estudiantes EL. Siéntase libre de traer a su estudiante de Wilcox.


FYI solamente, esto no es parte de la reunión, pero el programa de Artes Culinarias es la celebración de un evento para recaudar fondos, una fuente de pasta, en la cafetería en la misma tarde, a partir de las 19:00. Es una buena oportunidad para comprar la cena allí en caso vas a venir a la reunión directamente del trabajo.


Para cualquier pregunta, por favor póngase en contacto con Lillian Kwiatkowski, lkwiatkowski@scusd.net o llame a la oficina (408) 423-2400.

EL parent meeting on Oct. 21, 6:30pm, Room R206

English Learners (ELs) are students who speak a language other than English at home, or students whose parents’ primary language is other than English. All parents of ELs are invited to attend a meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015, 6:30pm in room R206 (in the 3-story building that houses the ASB office). Spanish translation will be available.

The purpose of the meeting is to inform EL parents of opportunities and services that are available to their students. Also, EL parents will be given an opportunity to vote for members of the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), a group of parents and school staff that advises the principal and staff on the school's program and services for ELs. (These include, but are not limited to, instructional programs and interventions, uses of school achievement data, teacher, staff and parent training to meet the needs of English Learners). The ELAC also advises the School Site Council (SSC) on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The Wilcox SPSA usually allocates funds to support ELs. Feel free to bring your student.

FYI only, this is not part of the meeting, but the Culinary Arts program is holding a fundraiser, a pasta feed, in the cafeteria on the same evening, starting at 7pm. It’s a good opportunity to grab dinner there in case you are coming to the meeting straight from work.

For any questions, please contact Lillian Kwiatkowski, lkwiatkowski@scusd.net or call the front office (408) 423-2400.

For further reinforcement for AP Spanish class, please watch any Spanish television, listen to the radio or Internet radio, read any articles from the news online, etc. Any reading or Spanish media will help your studies. You may even want to watch your favorite TV program or movies, in the Spanish Language, as further reinforcement to your studies.

Local Control and Accountability Plan

Parents, students, community members, and staff shared their vision for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) with us through many and varying community meetings and an online survey. Following that, an LCAP team consisting of SCUSD leadership, teachers and classified staff met to analyze needs assessments and feedback from the meetings and online surveys to identify key themes, re-work goals and brainstorm activities, metrics and resources. The result? A comprehensive three-year LCAP. We revisit the plan annually with our community to see how we are doing and make adjustments to our goals and priorities.

Santa Clara Unified invites our community to review our draft LCAP and provide comments. All comments will be reviewed as the District prepares its final draft to be presented at the June 11 Board of Trustees meeting for additional public comment.

All comments should be submitted by Tuesday, May 26 using this survey link.

Additional information and resources about the LCAP follow below. If you have any questions, please visit www.santaclarausd.org/LCAP or contact Peg Tushak at ptushak@scusd.net or (408) 423-2126.

California Healthy Kids Survey

Dear Parents,

Our teachers, students, and School Site Council members use the data from the California Healthy Kids Survey to make decisions about our school and how we spend our education budget. This is reflected in our Single Plan for Student Achievement and in our WASC report. Your input is extremely valuable to us. Please take the survey before the deadline of February 26, 2015. We are hoping to have 80%, or 1,555, of our parents take the survey. When you take it, would you encourage another parent that you know to take it?

Thank you!

Bonnie Billings, Principal

2015 White House Student Film Festival

We are happy to announce that from now through January 20, submissions are open for the second White House Student Film Festival. The theme of this year’s festival is The Impact of Giving Back, and it’s open to U.S. students, grades K-12. So tell a story about paying it forward, about community service, or what making a difference looks like in your eyes and through your lens. It can be a fictional story or a short documentary, so break out the lights, write a script, get the camera ready, and show us your passion for service and giving back. We can't wait to see what you will make this year! For inspiration, take a look at the official selections from last year's White House Student Film Festival, when the theme was the power of technology in education.

Films can be short – in fact, they must be 3 minutes tops. The official selections will be featured on the White House website, and shared across the world on White House sites and official social media accounts. If selected, you may have a chance to attend the film fest yourself at the White House.

Submission Guidelines:

  • All films must be shorter than 3 minutes.
  • All films must be made by students in grades K-12.
  • No film may use copyrighted material including music, TV shows, or movies.
  • All films must be uploaded to YouTube
  • All film submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST on January 20, 2015.

Tuesday, November 4, 2014 is a General Election in the State of California.
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 is a General Election in the State of California.  

Deadlines for voting in the November 4 election are:

Voter Registration Deadline:  Postmark by October 20, 2014
Vote-by-Mail Ballot Request:  Must arrive by October 28, 2014
Completed Ballots, including Vote-by-Mail Ballots:  Must arrive by 8:00 p.m. on November 4, 2014

To register to vote in California, you must be:
     A United States citizen,
     A resident of California,
     18 years of age or older on Election Day,
     Not in prison, on parole, serving a state prison sentence in county jail, serving a sentence for a felony pursuant to subdivision (h) of Penal Code section 1170, or on post release community supervision (for more information on the rights of people who have been incarcerated, please see the Secretary of State's Voting Rights for Californians with Criminal Convictions or Detained in Jail or Prison), and
     Not found by a court to be mentally incompetent.
Californians must be registered to vote at least 15 days before Election Day. For this date and other important election deadlines, go to Election Dates and Resources.
Once you register, you may vote in all state and local elections. You will not need to register to vote again unless you move to a new address, change your name or change your political party preference.

How do you register to vote by the deadline?
     Go to online voter registration to complete an application;
     OR
     Find a voter registration application at any Department of Motor Vehicles office, and most post offices, public libraries and government offices, or request one from your county elections office.

To receive a voter registration application by mail from the Secretary of State, call the toll-free voter hotline at (800) 345-VOTE.

How will I identify myself when registering to vote?

The voter registration application asks for your driver license or California identification card number, or you can use the last four numbers on your Social Security card. If you do not have a driver license, California identification card or Social Security card, you may leave that space blank. Your county elections official will assign a number to you that will be used to identify you as a voter.

Who may register and vote after the deadline?

State law allows some people to register and vote even when they will not be eligible until after the voter registration deadline.

     New citizens
If you will become a U.S. citizen less than 15 days before the next election, you may still be able to register and vote. To do this, you must visit your county elections office anytime before the polls close on Election Day. You must bring proof that you are a U.S. citizen and sign a form saying you are eligible to vote in California.
Contact your county elections office for more information.

     New state residents

Help Make History!

Santa Clara Unified School District has a new Strategic Plan with the tagline: “Rising Above in Silicon Valley”. Now they need a logo. Your help is needed. We are looking for creative entries, submitted by students. The logo design should be created digitally using a standard program such as Illustrator or Photoshop and must meet the following criteria:

  • Be inspired by the tagline through the frame of schools, students, and community.
  • Translate energy, vibrancy, innovation, and have a fresh, modern feel.
  • Include 2-5 colors and incorporate the tagline.
  • Be composed of original artwork.
  • It can, but doesn't have to, incorporate "Santa Clara Unified School District," "Santa Clara Unified," or "SCUSD

Students may work individually or in teams and can submit more than one, or slight variations of one. For example:  same logo but a few different color options or varying graphic placements. Entries must include a short written analysis of the artwork.  

If you have great ideas, but do not have access to Illustrator or Photoshop, a drop-in clinic will be held after school from 2-4:30 p.m. on September 8 and 9 in room N103. Electronic copies of all entries are due to Mrs. Armstrong by September 10.

Incident on Campus

Dear Parents/Guardians of Wilcox Students:

 

Over the weekend the football snack shack and the automotive yard were vandalized. In addition, six of our garden animals were killed, four chickens, one rabbit, and one duck. This was treated and addressed as a serious offense. All of us that heard about it, or witnessed portions of it, felt awful that our school and our animals were hurt. The Santa Clara Police Department, our staff members, and our students gave this top priority attention on Monday, April 28th. With the team effort a suspect was identified the same day and is under investigation with the SCPD. The suspect is a younger student, not high school age, and not a Wilcox student.

 

If your son or daughter is experiencing unusual grief, we do have school psychologists that could meet with them. Many of our parents have called to express their sympathy and have asked if there is anything they can do. For now your sympathetic thoughts are appreciated and are heartfelt. We do appreciate how much you care about our school climate. We are currently estimating the costs for repairs and we will keep you updated on any needs.

About the Student Program

Page Content

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 to bring this opportunity to their students and children.  Thank You!

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

Attention Seniors Steps for Enrollment to De Anza
NEW STUDENTS
  • SUMMER application opens March 1.
  • FALL application opens April 1.

IMPORTANT: All steps must be completed by July 11 to receive priority registration for fall.

  1. Apply! Do this as early as possible, even if you think you may attend another school. Keep all your options open, and keep your priority registration if you choose De Anza.
  2. Declare a major on your application – not "Undecided."
  3. Select a goal of transfer, degree or certificate.
  4. Take placement tests.
  5. Complete orientation.
  6. Officially choose your classes. (You'll learn how at orientation.) This is your educational plan for fall.

Additional information coming soon. Check this page for updates.

 

 

IMPORTANT: You must register as a full-time student (12+ units) in the spring to qualify for the best enrollment dates in the fall. See items 1-4 below.

To get a priority enrollment date, continuing students must:

  1. Be enrolled full time (for this fall, you must have been enrolled for 12 units or more in spring 2014)
  2. Have a declared major (not "Undecided")
  3. Have an official goal of transferring or obtaining a degree or certificate
  4. Not be on academic probation for the last two consecutive quarters (for this fall, you cannot have been on academic probation in winter and spring 2014) 
NOTE: You can update both your major and educational goal on MyPortal. Go to the Registration tab, then "My Profile" and "Update My Major/Educational Goal."

In order to receive priority registration, students cannot have completed more than 150 quarter units in degree-applicable courses. "W" and "I" grades are not included. Pre-collegiate English, ESL and Math classes do not count toward the 150 units.
