Girl Code @Stanford, is a summer program for rising high school seniors in the San Francisco Bay Area. Over the course of two weeks, students will get to experience computer science firsthand through an introduction to computer programming, tours of local tech companies and research labs, and visits from leading academics and industry professionals. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the program is available completely free-of-charge to all students.

We firmly believe that everyone, regardless of background, can thrive as a computer scientist. We start off each summer assuming absolutely no prior programming experience, and by the time we're done our students are routinely creating their own games and custom animations as final projects. Our students have gone on to study computer science in college (around 40% of students go on to take a CS class in their first year of college, and around 20% end up declaring computer science as a major). We've even had former Girl Code participants come back to serve as teaching staff in future years.

We are currently soliciting nominations for students to attend this year's offering of Girl Code. We are looking for current high-school juniors with strong math and science skills, but with no prior programming experience. We will be giving preference to students from those groups who are the most underrepresented in information technology: women, African Americans, Latinas/Latinos, and Native Americans.
 

Nominated students must complete our brief application form, available online at http://bit.ly/GirlCode2018. As a reminder, in addition to filling out this form, you'll need to be nominated by one of your high school teachers or counselors, as well as send in a letter of recommendation and a copy of your must recent transcript.

 

All nominations are due by Friday, March 16th.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to email us at girlcode@cs.stanford.edu or to visit our website, girlcode.stanford.edu

Hello Juniors, Sophomores, Sophomores and Freshmen. As electives are being chosen and whatnot, I ask for you to consider taking a look at joining Philosophy!

 

It's a really fun class filled with reading, discussing, and expanding on philosophical ideas of the past and applying them to our lives today. I took the class this year and it's been nothing short awesome. Also, many schools don't have a Philosophy class, so take advantage of the wonderful program and sign up!

For questions, just come to C-7 to talk with Mr. Dyer, he'll be happy to answer any of your questions.

We believe that the physical education department is unfair to all the students that participate. This is because some kids are not capable of doing some of the assessments in PE. For example, to get a 100% on the mile run, kids have to run it in eight minutes or under.  There are obviously kids who can do these assessments, however, some kids will give their best try and still not be able to an A.

Silver Creek National Honor Society is presenting the first ever Creek Conversations: Breaking Barriers, and we're looking for Silver Creek students to share their stories.

 

We're looking for people to give a 5-10 minute talk (similar to the style of a TED talk) about a personal experience in which they have "broken barriers." This can include discovering something new, resisting a popular way of thought, or even overcoming an internal obstacle. We deliberately made the theme flexible, so it can be interpreted in many different ways!

 

The following link is for sign-ups and further information: tinyurl.com/CreekConversations

 

Auditions will take place November 8-9 and 13-15 at lunch. The actual event will take place on Monday, November 20, at 3:30 p.m. in Raider Hall.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the NHS officers.

The De Anza College Promise

 

We’re excited to tell you about a new program, the De Anza College Promise, that will assist low-income students from local high schools who would like to enroll at De Anza starting fall 2018.

 

The promise is simple: Your first year of college is free if you qualify.

 

This program is designed to benefit students who need it the most. That means the lowest income students, including many who are undocumented and those who are aging out of the foster youth system.

 

Seniors graduating from area high schools can qualify if they are first-time college students entering De Anza with a Cal Grant in fall 2018.

 

The De Anza College Promise provides these benefits to participating students:

  • $500 toward the cost of books and course materials
  • Payment of all required fees for the first year (excluding those already covered by the Board of Governors fee waiver)
  • Membership in the Promise Learning Community

To qualify, students must apply for a Cal Grant no later than March 2. Undocumented students can qualify under the California Dream Act. You can find more information atwww.deanza.edu/outreach/de-anza-college-promise.

SCHS PTSA's first Campus Beautification event -
a HUGE success!!
 
THANKS to the efforts of over 100 students, dedicated parents and staff, the first Campus Beautification event was a BIG success.
 
The event was held on Sunday October 29th. Volunteers worked from 7 am to 3:30 pm to weed, plant, mulch and water various areas on the campus around the Administrative building, Raider Hall, Parent Center and Staff lounge. 
 
We are extremely grateful for the support provided by the students of various clubs, Mr Anthony Cardott of the Gardening Club, many parent volunteers including Raj Gandhasri, Susan Williams and many others who lead students in groups to work in various areas....
 
Lantanas, Chrysanthemums, Roses, Hibiscus, Rosemary in mostly Raider colors were planted.
 
It was a great community event that took over 450 man hours to complete!
 
PTSA thanks every one who supported this event.
 
Stay tuned for details on the next Beautification event...

ATTENTION STAFF OF SCHS!

 

LSU would love to announce a contest we are holding this school year for dia de los muertos!

 

What is dia de los muertos? Día de los muertos is a latin american tradition in which our family members and loved ones who have passed away are remembered. We would love to bring this cultural tradition to SCHS community!

 

We are looking for contestants that are willing to put an ofrenda in their classroom, and have it on display on the day of our dia de los muertos event. The community will vote for the most creative ofrenda.

 

Ofrendas are an essential part of Day of the Dead celebration.

The ofrenda is set on a table. Ofrendas must include pictures of loved ones who've passed away, items they were fond of, something they liked to snack on(for example candies, chips), candles(for safety precaution please do not light them on), flowers, and gifts(toys for the kids).   

 

You may search up ''Day of the Dead ofrendas'' on google images to get an idea of how an ofrenda looks like.

Were you unable to sign up for Kiva Club on Club Day? Don't worry! It’s never too late to join. Come on out to our next meeting Tuesday the 17th in Mr. Henninger's room (E-10) during lunch! We hold weekly meetings every Tuesday.

 

But what is Kiva Club?

 

At Kiva, we help people help themselves. With the goal of eliminating world poverty, we give loans to small businesses in countries around the globe, giving people the money they need to help achieve their own dreams. As a club member, YOU CHOOSE who the money we raise goes to, and when the loan is paid back, we use that money to make a direct impact in the lives of even more people.

 

Hope to see you at our next meeting! :)

HEY HEY RAIDERS!!!

 

Worldwide, many kids need medicine, nutrition, clean water, emergency relief and education. When you Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, the donations you collect will help save lives. So let's get those TOT boxes filled to the brim! But of course, every penny counts! :D 

 

$5 - Provide children with 13 doses of measles vaccine. 
$15 - Can provide a child with clean, safe water for ONE year. 
$50 - Can provide 35 malnourished children with lifesaving nutrition for one day. 
$165 - Can provide a bicycle to deliver medicine to children. 

 

For UNICEF members:

Collect up to $10 to earn 1 hour for UNICEF and $20 for 2 hours (2 being the max). But please don't let that stop you from collecting more money. It will only save more lives! We will also be giving out prizes to the TOP 10 fundraisers! ;) 

 

Not a UNICEF member?

Please either attend our meetings (every Thursday at lunch in the library) for the month OR maintain active contact with any of the officers!

 

So if you want to help raise funds for children around the world, please sign-up through the google form attached to get your very own TOT box! We will start distributing the boxes NEXT MONDAY!

Still unsure of what Interact is after signing up on Club Rush? Attached below are informational flyers on what Interact is and what we do!

 

So what exactly is Interact?

 

Interact, short for International Action, is an international organization of service that fosters leadership and responsible citizenship, and promotes international understanding and peace. Interact club members carry out service projects and learn about the world whilst being able to discover a passion for service. Interact clubs are sponsored by Rotary Clubs. Every year, Interact clubs organize at least two service projects: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding.

 

Hearing so much about how Interactors changing the world and creating a ripple effect in their communities and internationally…. how much better can it get? A LOT BETTER.

Why just listen to what others are doing when you can take part and empower change in the world yourself? Stop by Silver Creek Interact Club’s first meeting of the year to learn how you can do just that.

By taking that first step into your Interact journey, you will be apart of a family of over 8,000 Interactors from Interact 5170, a district of 98 schools all the way from Oakland to Santa Cruz and Gilroy. You will take part in community and international service where you will contribute to our district’s international and community goals. And by the time you step foot outside of high school and end your Interact journey, you will have left a legacy and a footprint on the world, no matter how big or small it is.

We encourage you to come to our first Interact meeting of the year to learn how you will be able to change the world through simple acts of service. We hope to see you this Tuesday, September 19th, during lunch in Raider Hall!

Thank you to all teachers, parents and students for being patient with us as we go through the balancing process in student schedules.  As our school continues to grow in size, the amount of movement between classes becomes extremely narrow.  

 

We are very close to ensuring that students have the classes they need to graduate.  We again ask for your patience, as we rush towards the finish line this coming week.

 

Counselors will not be available starting Monday August 21 - Wednesday August 23, 2017.  In order to ensure that we can hear everyone, we will need time to work on the request that students have placed into our office.

 

We truly understand the hardship that this has caused, but please understand this is a necessary step in order to ensure that all students are in the necessary classes for them to graduate.  

 

Thank you again to everyone for your patience.

Hello Raiders

 

You are totally keeping this campus on fleek by picking up your trash during Break and Lunch. For a school this size, students do leave trash but not too much.

So, keep picking up your trash and throwing it away and if you should happen to see some, it would be a nice gesture to put it in the trash as well as encourage others to throw their trash away. 

Go Raiders!

On behalf of Silver Creek High School Administration, upon further consideration of our parking permit guidelines, we are revising our previous price list to include the following changes:

 

Students are required to have a parking permit when parking on campus, students must only park in the designated parking areas. 

Parking permits are free of charge upon providing proof of a valid Driver's License, proof of insurance and registration to the school bank clerk. Please note that we have a limited number of permits to be issued. 

 

Our growing enrollments have increased the number of concerns for vehicle safety.

Transportation, meals, and materials are provided, and it’s all FREE for qualified students! Spaces are limited for this amazing opportunity. For more information please call or email us at summer@svudl.org or 408-337-2493 or go to http://www.svudl.org/summer/registration to register.

Presidents debate. Sports commentators debate. Have you ever tried to talk your parents into letting you go out? You were debating! No matter what you are interested in - business, law, education, politics, even music or sports - you will need to be able to speak your mind with clarity and power. Combining public speaking, critical thinking, teamwork and strategy, debate is a powerful activity to help you develop your positions, speak your mind and respond to those who disagree with you.

 

Thousands of students across America have earned scholarships to college because of debate. Debaters succeed because they learn how to use their voice as a meaningful, powerful tool. College admissions officers know this and look for debaters to recruit them. 

Ask anyone who has done it and they will tell you straight up: debate is fun. Speaking your mind in a competitive situation where people listen to what you say is an amazing feeling. Debate helps you build confidence and use your words to impress friends, parents, teachers, and more. The trophies you win, the friends you gain, the places you travel, all of these make debate an experience you will remember for the rest of your life. Come to the SVUDL Summer Institute and learn what it’s all about!

If you signed up for or plan to take AP Language for the 2017-2018 school year, please do the following during the summer break: 

 

Summer Assignment 2017 Advanced Placement Language and Composition

This course is about understanding rhetoric, the art of persuasion.  To this end, Ms. Cargill, Mr. Head, and Mrs. Madrigal ask that you start tuning in to the many obvious and subtle ways you are "encouraged" to act, think, or believe a particular way--for instance, why is "encouraged" in quotation marks?  

 

For AP Lang, get used to the idea that "text" can mean something written, a person's body language, or even a picture.  Advertisements, music, editorial cartoons, comic strips, political speeches, photographs, newspaper articles, vlogs, blogs, dogs (maybe?)--what can people use to send messages to you about themselves or about how they think you should be?  For example, will you belong to a certain group by listening to this music?  Does that soda company want you to associate drinking its products with having fun?  Will wearing these jeans make you fit in with the cool kids?  Does agreeing with this individual make you smart?  Does following this group make you safer?  

 

This summer, take a critical view of your world.  Ask yourself the following questions about various texts, and submit them through Google Forms at https://goo.gl/forms/3MCammfdoxKLjNbu2:

 

1. What is the nature of the text (e.g. printed words, a photograph, a commercial)?

2. What is the message of the text?

3. Is the text appealing to your:

A) emotions, like fear, joy, a desire to belong, a need to feel special, etc.?  

B) intelligence?

C) faith?

D) bias?

4. Why does the speaker expect you to believe him/her/it?  Does the speaker have some kind of authority

or superior knowledge? good character? the ability to intimidate?  experience?

 

You should post and explain at least ten examples by 11:59 PM Sunday, August 13.    

 

You may view your submissions and your peers’ on Google Sheets at https://goo.gl/0ZMwkz.

Yes future APUSH Students there is a "summer assignment."  But do not worry it is very easy!

Along with competing a few maps and worksheets, students will be expected to read the first two chapters of the textbook and complete vocabulary and review questions.

 

Everything can be found on Schoolloop

APUSH Summer Work

 

Note:  While it is suggested that you have the assignment completed over the summer, it is not required.  Students will not need to turn it in until the second week of school.  However, if you don't wish to be overworked the first week of school perhaps avoid procrastination :)
