All girls must have the proper paperwork filled out completely with both parent/guardian signatures as well as a physicians and insurance information.

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

alujan@scusd.net

anuti@scusd.net

 

Thank you and see you soon,

Coach Lujan

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.

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

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,

Please find attached flyers for an important upcoming CAC Assistive Technology workshop and our newly created CAC A/I Sub-committee (pending Spanish translation flyer) in January.
 
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

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.

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.

Dear incoming AP Spanish Language students:

Some students received a packet of work for reinforcement studies for the summer. This work was not an official requirement for summer homework, it was only to help your studies. It was recommended to some students, but not required. 
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.

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.

From May 1-8, the Wilcox ASB will be accepting donations for the American Red Cross to send aide to survivors of the devastating earthquake that recently occurred in Nepal. Every dollar you donate helps to provide clean water, food, shelter, and sanitation to those struggling with this calamity. If every Wilcox student and staff member donated just $1 each, Wilcox could contribute more than $2000 to help. ASB will be collecting donations in the quad during lunch each of these days. Give a dollar, save a life!

I was hoping you could spread the word to your art students about a free workshop we are having at the Triton Museum of Art for high school students only.  I have attached the flyer so you could check it out and see if anyone would be interested.  It will be an exciting workshop with artist Michael Foley.  

 

Thanks so much for your help.  A few times a year we offer these free workshops and would love Santa Clara students to benefit.

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!

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.

The program is designed to give students an opportunity to explore the medical profession. The SSTEM program consists of 4 Saturdays; each day introduces students to four different specialties: primary care, general surgery, ophthalmology, and cardiology. Each day will include breakfast, an opening activity, health professional-led presentations, and 2-3 hands-on activities led by Stanford medical students. Students will get opportunities to suture, learn surgical knot tying, perform CPR on manikins, and dissect sheep hearts and cow eyes. In addition, students will also get an opportunity to visit Stanford for a session in the anatomy lab and a tour of the gorgeous, picturesque campus.

Program Dates
in 2015: January 10, 24, 31 (SSCMA Building in San Jose) and February 7 (Stanford University).  The program may be repeated in the spring of 2015.

High school students of all years are eligible to apply. We particularly encourage students from low income and underrepresented groups to consider applying. Participation is free of charge to all accepted students. However, transportation to the SSCMA Building in San Jose (3 Saturdays) and Stanford University (last Saturday) is not included.

Applications are due midnight on November 23. The application can be found at https://jfe.qualtrics.com/form/SV_0PdnapBSaMYbvEN

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
If you meet all the other requirements to vote in California but become a California resident 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 at least seven days before Election Day. You will be required to sign an oath saying you are eligible to vote in California and have not voted in the same election in any other state. Then you may vote only for President and Vice President.
Contact your county elections office for more information.

Voters who have moved addresses:
PLEASE NOTE: Changing your address with the DMV or Post Office may not automatically update your voter registration. Click here to check your voter registration status.

You must re-register to vote...
•     If you are registering to vote for the first time
•     If you have moved to Santa Clara County from a different county
•     To change your name
•     To change your political party affiliation

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.

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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There’s a new school funding law called the LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula). It’s a new way for schools to focus on student success. LCFF requires school districts to involve parents in planning and decision making. It also:

  • Shifts spending decisions from the state to your local school district.
  • Requires your school district to focus on the eight key areas that help all students succeed.
  • Provides extra funding for students with greater challenges.
  • Gives your district more flexibility for how to spend its money to improve local schools.

LCFF is a huge opportunity for parents to shape the vision for your children’s education and make it happen! Please join us on March 5, 2014 at 6 p.m. in the Wilcox Science Lecture Hall. Download the attached announcement for more information.

Dear Wilcox Community,
 
It is with a heavy heart that I again write a request of this nature.
 
In the light of our recent loss, we at The Scribe will be creating a memorial to honor Creighton Lane. He was an inspirational presence to many, father figure to others, and a colossus within our school.
 
If you have any pictures, thoughts, anecdotes, or poetry that you would like to share, please email them to editorial@wilcoxscribe.com. 
 
Thank you for your time and consideration.

I just became aware that there is a small amount of confusion regarding the assigning of the teacher recommenders.  There are two steps you need to do when inviting and assigning a teacher.

First Step:

  • First you will invite a teacher
  • At this time you will put in all their information

Second Step:

  • At this point you will need to click on every college that you wish to assign the teacher you invited to write a letter of recommendation for you.
  • You will need to do this for each and every college you are applying to on the Common App.

If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to come into the College and Career Center and Ms. Yee you take you through this step by step.

Your HS students are invited to participate in an exciting, challenging, and fun-filled event: The 2014 Stanford Brain Bee. This event will be held on Saturday, January 11th, from 1:00pm--5:00pm, at Stanford University.

What is the Brain Bee?

The Stanford Brain Bee is a local qualifying round of the International Brain Bee (IBB), a neuroscience competition exclusively for high school students ages 14-18. The Stanford Brain Bee involves both a written component and a live oral Q&A session. In addition to the competition, students will have the opportunity to attend a presentation by a Stanford neuroscientist and speak with Stanford professors and students from the medical, biosciences, and neuroscience fields.

The IBB motivates students to learn about the brain, captures their imagination, and inspires them to pursue neuroscience careers in order to help treat and find cures for neurological and psychological disorders. There are currently about 150 Local Brain Bee coordinators in 30 countries worldwide that conduct competitions annually. The winner of each Local Bee is invited to attend the National Brain Bee (NBB) competition in his or her own country, and the winner of each NBB is invited to compete in the International Brain Bee Championship.

No previous neuroscience knowledge required! Contestants should study the 2012 edition of Brain Facts, a 96-page primer available for free at http://www.brainfacts.org/about-neuroscience/brain-facts-book/. Answers to ALL test questions can be found in this booklet, with the exception of questions that are reserved for tiebreakers.

Great prizes to be won and registration is free!

All students who would like to compete on the Wilcox cross country team next season should notify coach Walt Van Zant at WaltVZ@aol.com.

Official practice will begin on 8/19/13.  You must have a physical exam and furnish a variety of other paperwork prior to being allowed to participate in offcial practices.  I hope to get copies of these forms during the next few days.

Those who are interested in running with a group during the summer should meet in front of the main Wilcox gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6PM, beginning on 6/11/13.  Some of the more advanced runners will also meet at the Peterson track on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8AM, beginning on 6/10/13.

You will not need a physical  to participate in these non-mandatory summer practices as the school has no responsibility for these practices.  As per the Central Coast Section rules, these unofficial practices must end as of 7/31/13.

The cross country season is short (ends a couple of days into November) and it takes awhile to get into top racing condition  for races ranging from 2 miles early in the season to 3 miles by the end of the season.  So, it would be helpful to do some training during the summer, whether on your own or with other Wilcox runners.

I  will from time to time post information on the Wilcox cross country website.  See:

http://waltvzwil.tripod.com/cross-country.html  The information will be at the "XC Notes" link.

Are you finding it hard to reduce your accent, although you are good at communicating in English?  Are you tired of rote practicing of English pronunciation?  Then let’s sing together! In this pronunciation training course, we’ll experience “sing-like-talking” activities that facilitate nonnative English speakers to get native-like pronunciation patterns in American English. Learn (and practice) physical exercises to produce native-like pronunciation in American English. This lesson has been implemented for over 10 years for ESL students at the Listening and Speaking Center at De Anza College.  More than 2,300 ESL students, from over 30 countries, have taken the class over the years to learn pronunciation skills while having fun!

Class 1F: How Great Leaders Think and Act: Six Things You Can Do At Home, School and Work
 

Marcia Daszko ‘89, Alumni Association Board Member and CEO, Marcia Daszko & Assoc.

Great leaders impact:

You can make a living out of doing good for others and ordinary people can truly make a difference! Our generation is the future voice of changes to come in this community; we've seen that through the amazing campaign (Measure D) that started right at SJSU.

David Rader, Professor of Kinesiology, San José State University

 

The mental side of golf has always intrigued and challenged those most dedicated to the game. In today’s competitive environment the physical and emotional imperatives of golf also demand focused attention through strenuous athletic training, strategic thinking, and emotional intelligence. Golf is really a game of “Physical Chess”, a game that calls for the best of “Mind, Body, and Spirit”. This program will explore the mental, physical, and emotional aspects of golf (Physical Chess). Additionally, we will analyze the strategic, tactical, technical, and social requirements of the game. Come join the discussion, be part of the process, and make a difference in 2013.

 

Class 2E: How to Create and Maintain a Consistent and Compelling Personal Brand

Kevin Grossman ‘93, Writer

 

Consider this: according to most background screening firms, around 50% of resumes contain some form of falsity. If you put yourself out there with your previous work experience, skills, projects, wins, connections and more, and asked previous employers, peers and even friends to “validate” you by recommending/endorsing, then you're probably going to reduce the number of those old resume white lies. Nobody wants an archenemy, or even a nemesis, to call us out.

 

Create and manage your online professional presence and your personal brand through a compelling "summary" that tells your story and makes a business case for why you are who you are today in the world of work. Learn why you should keep your online profiles as consistent and accurate as possible across all social points of presence as well as niche professional site you may belong to, not just LinkedIn.

 

Find out how to ask for online recommendations and endorsements that validate who you say you are and what you've done. Consistency and accuracy are the critical keys, and being personal and accessible are just as important, because those searching you out and reviewing who you are will be looking for anomalies that don’t add up — and you want to always have everything add up. You want to stand out, but you want to add up. You never know when that great new opportunity looking for you to add up. It’s your personal employment brand. Take care of it and it will take care of you.

 

Class 2F: San José Rocks, Celebrating Silicon Valley's Role 'n Rock

Dan Orloff, Founder, Bay Area Rocks

 

The surprise to many is that some of the most influential rock 'n' roll acts of all time got their start – and technological advances in music – in San Jose and the Silicon Valley. Many from San José State University. From Count Five, The Grateful Dead, The Doobie Brothers and Fleetwood Mac to Smash Mouth and Trapt, from Ampex and Dolby to Apple's iPad, Silicon Valley has enriched America's largest cultural export: rock 'n' roll. Perhaps most noteworthy is the medium that was to bring 1954’s birth of rock 'n' roll to ears all over the world: In April of 1909, radio broadcasting was born in San José when Charles (a.k.a. "Doc") Herrold, a San José State electronics instructor, constructed the world's first broadcasting station in downtown San José. In 1919, his wife Sybil Herrold became the world's first disc jockey. This workshop will curate the Bay Area’s rich rock ‘n’ roll history from the fan’s perspective while playing it forward for tomorrow’s fans, bands and musicians through exciting, unique, deep and emotive experiences.

 

Class 2G: Your Credit Score

 

Valerie Desrosiers
Personal Banker, Xceed Financial Credit Union
SJSU Alumna

 

 

Xceed Financial Credit Union will be going over the importance of a credit score, how to keep a good score, and how to repair a bad score. We will explain the different credit reporting models, the break down of how scores are determined, and what consumers need to be aware of when using credit. Xceed will also go over how a credit score affects the consumer when they are purchasing big items like a home or auto.

 

 

Session 3 (11:30 a.m. – 12:20 p.m.)

 

Class 3A: Kaplan Test Prep: GRE Preview Class

Kaplan Test Prep


Demystify the GRE and learn what the test is really measuring.  Tackle score-raising strategies.  Learn from a master Kaplan GRE instructor

Class 3B: Finding and Using Your Strengths

Deanna Peck, Coordinator for Educational Programs, SJSU Counseling Services

You are a unique individual with exceptional and distinctive strengths.   Start thinking about your positive points and how they can help you achieve in your personal and professional life.  This workshop will introduce you to a well-known tool, interactive exercises, and some common language that will raise your confidence and improve your well-being.

Class 3C: Library Tour

Elisabeth Thomas, Community Outreach Librarian, San José State University

The King Library is a shared building with both the San José City and SJSU communities.  Opened in Fall 2003, this library has been infused with artist Mel Chin's award winning public art and resources and services for both the SJSU and City of San José communities.  Come explore the nine floors of the building, including the building's design, collections and art.  This tour focuses on the art and history between the joint library building, including the building's design, collections and art.

 

Class 3D: Global Leadership and Social Innovation

Dr. Joyce Osland, Executive Director, Global Leadership Advancement Center (GLAC), San José State University

 

The complexity of the global context and today's global problems require innovative "extreme leadership." Global Leadership is the process of influencing the thinking, attitudes, and behaviors of a global community to work together synergistically toward a common vision and common goals. Come learn how to prepare yourselves for global work and hear how we use social innovation to develop global leaders.

Class 3E: Exploring Research Opportunities Around the World (Global Citizenship at SJSU)

Peter F. Young, Director, Silicon Valley Center for Global Studies

Co-Director, Pakistan Distance Education Enhancement Project

 

Last year San José State’s School of Journalism & Mass Communications received a $2.4 million federal grant to train Afghan professors and enhance the journalism programs in Afghanistan.  This year SJSU received $1.1 million federal grant to improve distant education programs in Pakistan. In addition, the University is a part of the Consortium for Middle Eastern Studies along with Santa Clara University and San José Community College.  Come learn more about these innovative projects and other international opportunities, the significant role that SJSU is playing in helping our colleagues around the world, the realities our faculty face working in third world countries and the progress that has been made during these undertakings.

 

Class 3F: Culture Crash: A Crash Course on San José's Innovative and Creative Culture

Flora Moreno de Thompson

Writer and Editor, Content Magazine

Alumna, Mexican American Studies, San José State University


There's a lot more to San José than you think. This course will showcase the diversity and creativity in our community by focusing on local businesses and innovators as featured in the pages of San José's Content Magazine.

Do you enjoy writing? Do you have your finger on the pulse of current events? Do you want to influence the Wilcox community and your peers? Are you tired of rhetorical questions? Well, if you answered “yes” to any of those quandaries, then taking Journalism might be the unique class you’ve always wanted but never realized existed.

Our workload consists of writing a few interesting articles a month—a highly doable feat—having it edited by our staff, and submitting a final draft for publication. Your work could potentially be circulated all over campus and beyond. After all that, we polish off each month with a post-publication celebration. Journalism offers the self-motivated and proactive student the freedom to set their own targets, meet their own goals, and have their voice heard. (You’ll also earn 5 practical arts credits per semester!)

We have room for writers, photographers, traditional artists, and website programmers. Even if you’re not confident about your writing skill level, our editorial staff can work directly with individuals to improve it. We also look to develop journalistic writing skills in all of our participants.

So sign up. What’ve you got to lose?

There will be an informational meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 30th, 6-7pm,
Wilcox Science Lecture Hall, 3250 Monroe St., Santa Clara for both:

1) parents and other community members who represent
companies/organizations wanting to sponsor a summer intern (or would like
to learn about other ways they can help) and
2) parents whose teen(s) may be interested in participating in a
summer internship, this year or in the future.

If you plan to come, please RSVP to Lillian, lgkwiat@gmail.com(408) 248-3702.

The Wilcox PTSA, in conjunction with non-profit youth employment agency Teen Force would like to create a summer internship program in 2013, primarily for Wilcox juniors, but seniors and sophomores will be considered. We are looking for parents and community members who either own businesses or work for corporations, research institutions, non-profit organizations, etc. who currently have high school internship programs or are willing take on a summer intern. Paid positions are preferable, but some students may consider unpaid positions in order to gain valuable skills and experience or learn more about potential careers.

There will be a process to vet potential candidates and match students to
different types of positions and organizations. Employers/Sponsors will
have the opportunity to choose from a select group of students. These
students will receive work readiness training before they begin and support
throughout the summer. The Wilcox PTSA is partnering with a non-profit youth placement agency Teen Force who, for a small fee paid by the employer/sponsor, can hire the students, handle all the paperwork (including W-2s and other tax documents, workers compensation insurance, proper hiring and termination notices, work permits, etc.) required to bring a teen worker into an organization, making it a smooth process for employers/sponsors, should they choose this option. Over the past two years, TeenForce has worked with 15 employers, providing 40 paid internships to youth in fields including from auto repair, health care, marketing, programming, education, accounting and computer networking. Details can be seen at http://www.teenforce.org/Internships.php

SCHS will be hosting Mission College classes this Spring.  

There are four main reasons why you should take a Mission course being offered at Santa Clara High this spring: cost, convenience, credits, and classes.  

Cost:  Students in the district can enroll for free in these courses.  The only thing you have to pay for is to rent or buy your textbook (and there's financial help for you if you cannot afford this).  

Convenience: Taking a class is convenient.  They are located at SCHS on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  There is even a bus that picks students up from Wilcox to take them to SCHS (but there is no return service).

Credits: By taking and passing one of these courses, a key advantage you receive are credits.  You receive college credits for passing the course instantly; no need to take a national AP exam and hope for a passing score.  You also can receive high school credits while you are receiving these college credits- simultaneously.  In fact, you earn 3.5 times the amount of high school credit for each college unit you earn.  

Classes: Lastly, the classes being offered by Mission are unlike anything offered at WHS.  There is Introduction to Sociology, where you cover social issues of wealth and race.  There's Human Nutrition, where you learn about principles of health and preventing disease; there's Basic Accounting for those interested in accounting or business.  If you're interested in being a fire fighter one day, there's introduction to Fire Protection.  In addition, there is History of Western Civilization, and for those of you who are seniors who want to attend Mission College, you can get introduced to the school and start planning out your college career in one of the Orientation courses.

 


Steps to take if you are interested in enrolling in a course:

1.  Go to www.missioncollege.edu to apply online. 

2.  Complete and sign the Concurrent Enrollment packet (including the Health Services Form). 

 3.  Take the completed Concurrent Enrollment packet to your counselor during lunch or after school to get his/her approval.

* Applications are due by January 28th.

Attached are enrollment forms, a flyer with more information, and a "cheat sheet" of how to enroll.  

 


Please email Mrs. Emily Eguchi (eburton@scusd.net) or Ms. Yee in the College and Career Center if you have any questions.

Facebook offers anonymous reporting of suicidal/harmful posts! Directions for reporting:

 

Facebook Response to Harmful/Suicidal Posts

 

If you have a concern about a friend, there is a way to reach out anonymously to get that person some help and attention.

 

There is a new Facebook (FB) link to report possible suicide posts.  If you see a post in your “newsfeed” that alarms you:

 

  1. Move the mouse to the top right corner of the post and click on the “v” symbol that appears.
  2. Choose “Report a Story or Spam”
  3. Next click on the option “File a Report” (this will not block your friend)

  5. Scroll down to “Suicidal Content” and click report

 

The FB safety team will review alerts and may send the person who posted the suicidal comment an email encouraging them to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-2355 or to click on a link to begin a confidential chat session with a crisis worker.

As Tuesday, November 6, 2012 is a school day, you will need to have permission from your parents and your classroom teachers (this is NOT a field trip).  November 6 is also the day that Herff/Jones will be on campus to take orders for graduation caps & gowns, along with graduation announcements, and other graduation items, so you will need to plan ahead for this day if you choose to participate.

Note:  In the past, the SCCRoV has sent checks out to those who have participated just in time for the Wilcox HS Winter Ball.
