My passion and dedication towards our school is undeniable, and I hope that I can continue to show that love for our school in senior year, as your President.

ASB VICE PRESIDENT - NICHOLAS GONZALEZ

Hey Raiders! I'm Nicholas Gonzalez and I'm running for ASB Vice President. I've been a part of Student Council/Leadership/Class Office/ASB since elementary school every year since the 6th grade. At Creek, I currently have 3 years in Leadership and that includes 1 year as an ASB officer, so why not finish it off as your Vice President? I'm hard-working, dedicated, and committed to make events at Silver Creek the best that they can be. I care about the enjoyment of the students and their opinions! With all of that being said, vote for me and help me continue to make Silver Creek a place that everyone can love and enjoy

 

 

ASB SECRETARY - BRITNEY BLACK

Hey Raiders! I'm Britney Black and I'm running to be your ASB Secretary. Throughout these last two years in leadership as well as class office I have been able to grow and understand myself more as a leader. Now, not only do I want to influence my class in a greater way but I would like to spread it throughout the whole school. With that, I need your help! Please come out tomorrow and vote for me Britney Black to be your '17-'18 ASB Secretary. 

 

 

ASB TREASURER - VENESSA NGUYEN

After being 2019's class Treasurer and Vice President, I have a good understanding of the hard work and commitment that has to be put into leading others. I am confident that I'll be the perfect voice for not only my class but the entire student body and I'll make sure that all funds will be used to benefit US. I cannot wait to work with all the clubs and classes. Every single vote counts. 

PLEASE VOTE FOR ME VENESSA NGUYEN FOR ASB TREASURER!

 

ASB TREASURER - KEVIN TRAN

Hello Raiders! My name is Kevin Tran and I'm running to be your next ASB Treasurer! If elected, I will bare all my dedication and passion for the betterment of Silver Creek High and its denizens. If given the opportunity, I promise to give voice and concern to the shy, the silent, and the underrepresented. It is my mission to do what I can to improve the structure of Silver Creek, to ensure fair fundings and fundraisers for all clubs, no matter the size. My three years of experience within the Leadership class has taught me a plethora of skills and insights. The strongest of these epiphanies would be my realization of how much I love Silver Creek and every unique raider experience. Vote for innovation. Vote for difference. Vote Tran because together we can!  

 

 

ASB TREASURER - HENRY TRINH

Hey Silver Creek Raiders!!!

My name is Henry Trinh and I am running to be your 2017-2018 ASB Treasurer! Being in Leadership for the past 2 years has taught me many, many valuable lessons and showed me how to love and support my school. I already have experience in the field of Treasurer as I already handle the funds for our school's Student Store. I am so dedicated into helping Silver Creek, and my only goal is to make a positive impact on the majority of students! I want to support our school clubs and I want to make sure that we gain more money for the student body!  I plan on informing club officers on how to manage their accounts and keep up in check with clubs that are not tending to their bank account. I also want to make sure that school funds are being used for Students during business meetings and make sure that students will always benefit from Leadership actions. I am so motivated and so dedicated to helping my lovely school and being elected ASB Treasurer will aid me in helping Silver Creek! I'm here to support and increase the funding for our school, and I'm here to support all you Raiders!

Come out to the X-Quad tomorrow to vote me, Henry Trinh, as your 2017-2018 ASB Treasurer!

Vote for Henry Trinh and your money won't run thin!

 

 

ASB TREASURER - NIKKI VADI

HEY RAIDERS!! This year I decided to run, because I have always wanted to run for a leadership position. But I never gave myself and and others a chance to see how well I can lead. I believe if given the chance I would really make an impact on our school. High school has helped me grow and become a more confident, resonsible and hardworking person. You should vote for me not because you are my friend or know me or just randomly pick me, but because you know that in my own way I will help the school with everything in me, that my creativity, responsibility, compassion and many more leadership skills deserve to be used to help this school. COUNT ON ME TO COUNT FOR YOU! VOTE NIKKI VADI FOR ASB TREASURER!

 

 

ASB CHIEF JUSTICE - PRACHI BHAGAVATHA

Hi everyone! My name is Prachi Bhagavatha, and I am running for your 2017-2018 ASB Chief Justice! This year is my third year in leadership and second year as head of my commission, so I have an enormous amount of experience organizing and planning school activities. I love participating in and leading all our events ranging from the blood drive to FANTASTICS. Also, I am super dedicated and determined to make Silver Creek a better and fun place for everyone where all the students can voice their opinions. I will go that extra mile to make you all smile, so vote me tomorrow for your ASB Chief Justice! You won't regret it!

 

 

ASB CHIEF JUSTICE - CHRISTIAN ZAIA

During my time in leadership, I took note of the importance of an ASB officer (Chief Justice) and now understand the resposibilties and the impact they have on my fellow students. I decided that running for this position will help me accomplish my goal of making a difference for the school. Some of my strengths are that I am motivated, creative, hard-working, passionate, just, and committed to my school. Because I am a well rounded student, having participated in most extracurricular activities, I can bring fair and respectable ideas and judgements to ASB. Now that I have found a position that I believe suits me best, I am ready to take on the responsibilities of Silver Creek's ASB Chief Justice. 

 

 

ASB SPIRIT LEADER - SHANNEN DE OCAMPO

HEEEEYYYY RAIDERS! I am Shannen De Ocampo and I am running for your ASB Spirit Leader of 2017-2018! Ok, the real question here is: Why should you vote for me as your ASB Spirit Leader?

It is an opportunity for students to make up their absences and to complete any assignments they might have missed while they are gone. There will be teachers and college aide to help students with their assignments. Lunch will be provided for all students. Saturday School will help Silver Creek recover money from students’ absences.  Absences could include but not limited to: illness, doctor’s appointment, athletic activities, field trips, etc. This money could be used for student resources. In addition, it will also help improve our school’s API score. We hope to have all students take advantage of this opportunity.

Thank you so much to the 80+ volunteers, including many parents and middle school students,  who participated in Saturday's PTSA Beautification Day.  We concentrated on the preparing the Baseball field for the season by weeding the infield, along the outfield fence and the bullpen.  The baseball team did a great job preparing the bullpen!  NJROTC volunteers collected all the tree branches all over campus that had fallen in the recents storms as well as dead cherry tree that had fallen down. Mr Cardott, his adorable son and a crew of volunteers picked up trash all over campus and weeded around Raider Hall.  Thanks to the early crew (arrived at 7AM!) for weeding the stadium hill and the crew that stayed late to clean up!

 

Thanks to the baseball team and families, Mr. Cardott and his son, Mr. Marr's students, Rodney, NJROTC, Students in Action, California Scholarship Fed, Red Cross, AVID, LEO, Class of 2020, Interact Club, The Boy Scouts, Chaboya Leadership, Quimby Oak Leadership, Bulldog Tech Leadership, Green Society, SCHS PTSA members and all our other students and parents who volunteered!

 

Thanks for supporting the Silver Creek High School PTSA.  Join us!  It's fun!

Good morning ESUHSD
 

My friends at the City of San Jose PRNS wanted me to share with you this great opportunity for high school students in San Jose.

The Young Placemakers (YP) is currently accepting applications!

 This opportunity will empower youth to identify neglected spaces within San José and implement their own placemaking “activation”. An “activation” is an event that is creatively organized with the intention of bringing public activity into a given space (i.e. a park, a street, a building, etc.). As a participant, you will learn more about the theories behind placemaking, learn about the process that goes into organizing activations, and gain professional skills (i.e. marketing, event production, and budget management) along the way. 

There is no cost to participate in Young Placemakers. If requested, you may receive community service hours and letters of recommendation. Equal consideration will be given to all applicants who meet the requirements listed below. To apply to become a Young Placemaker, please complete the application and submit by January 31st, 2017 by 5:00 PM.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Applicant must currently live in San José.
  • Applicant must currently be enrolled in and attending high school (public, private, or charter).
  • Applicant must be able to commit to all meetings (see Time Commitment) and any additional meetings required the week of the YP activation.
  • Applicant must be able to attend the YP activation, which will take place between June 21st and June 30th.


RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Selected participants will be required to attend a 10-week training course about placemaking.
  • Selected participants will develop, plan, and implement a concept for the placemaking activation.
  • With staff support and guidance, selected participants will create and implement a marketing strategy, recruit volunteers, and coordinate the logistics for the activation.
  • With staff support and guidance, selected participants will manage and run the final activation.


TIME COMMITMENT

  • Selected participants must be available to meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday from the date of selection through June 30, 2017.
  • Selected participants may be required to attend additional meetings the week of the final activation (which will be scheduled between June 21st and June 30th.)
  • Parents/guardians will be required to attend an orientation with youth who are selected for the program on Wednesday, February 15th at 6:00pm.
  • If a participant misses more than two (2) consecutive meetings without notification, their placement will be re-evaluated and may be subject to termination (at which time any service hours and/or letters of recommendation may be revoked).
  • Up to two (2) excused absences may be allowed if the lead advisor is notified 48 hours in advance. Excuses must be valid.


Qualified candidates will be contact by phone or e-mail to schedule an interview date and time within 1-2 weeks of the application deadline. Interviews for selected candidates will be scheduled on Thursday, February 9th and Friday, February 10th between 5:30pm and 7:30pm.

Thank you to all the volunteers that have participated in the SCHS PTSA Beautification Days.  

 

More than 150 student volunteers provided over 650 community of service hours for our events so far this year! In September, we mulched the stadium hill as well as weeding and picking up trash all over campus.  In December, we concentrated on trash, leaves and weeds.  We started in the Student parking lot, moved to the stadium hill and then it was the students choice on campus.  Some went to the ROTC area, the bus loop, BCE quad, U quad, X quad, rose garden and around the library.

  • Thank you so much to Mr. Marr's class, AVID, NJROTC, CSF, Red Cross, Leadership, Mr. Taylor's class, Key Club, Interact, LEO, Green Society, Japanese Club, SIA, NHS, and all the other students who volunteered "just for fun!"  
  • A special thanks to parents David Mirassou and Jennifer Lott, teachers, Mr. Cardott and Nick-Sensei and staff, Mr. Abrigo, Mr. Munoz, Mrs. Ramirez and Mr. Mach.
  • Last but not least, thank you to all the SCHS PTSA members and generous donors to the SCHS PTSA for funding our Beautification Projects!

 

Thanks for making our campus beautiful for our students, our teachers and our community.

 Join us next time! It's fun!

ANIMAL ALLIES PRESENTS

MJ Flash Week 

MONDAY SEPT.26 - FRIDAY SEPT.30

 

At this very second, there are hundreds of disabled animals in shelters that are overlooked because of “the defect” people see on the outside

 

People aren't willing to take the time to see...
The wagging tail of a deaf dog chasing the ball across the yard. 
The blind pup going up a flight of stairs to get the treat or hug they know is waiting for them.
The 3 legged fighter run like the wind with their canine pals in the joy of living.

 

For September's MJ(mason jar) Flash Week, Animal Allies is raising awareness and funds for Pets With Disabilities, an organization that cares for and educates the public about disabled pets .

 

PWD anticipates each dog coming into the rescue program will require $1000-$1500 in “typical” medical needs – and WE can help cover those costs. Once a dog is accepted at PWD, they make a COMMITMENT to that dog - whatever it takes, for however long they need.

 

If YOU want to make a difference on the unbroken spirit of a disabled pup, see one of our officers/participating members to donate!

 

Pets With Disabilities -- because they're spirits aren't broken

The deadline for the lowest price for your student and family is Friday, September 30  for our Summer 2017 tour of France, Spain and Italy. In order to lock in your or your child's place and price is by enrolling with the $95 deposit by next Friday! Once enrolled, you can set up payment plans with the tour company, EF Tours. 

 

Details about the trip, the cost, what's included, additional and optional excursions available, payment options, etc. are included via the link below. So far, there are 25 travelers. I would love to take more, but my deadline for new enrollees is Friday, September 30th.

 

I will be hosting a parent meeting on Thursday, September 29th in my classroom, room D-5, to go over any questions or concerns you may have before you register. Next month I will host our first planning meeting for all students and parents who will be going on tours with us in June 2017. I am excited to have everyone meet each other an dgo over more details about the trip. 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Hello, 

 

I am Carolyn Brown, the Website Design teacher at Foothill College. I want to tell you about a wonderful opportunity for creative high school students to earn 4 college credits this fall.

 

I am teaching a fully ONLINE class in Website Design at Foothill College this fall. Registration is currently open, and you may know students who would like to take this class and earn college credit. As always, it's FREE. The class runs Sept 26 - Dec 16.

 

This class is for anyone interested in creating websites. There are no prerequisites and you don't need to write code. If you know a student that is interested in creating websites or a student that might want to make a website for a high school project, a school club, or personal interest, my class is a great way to get started. 

 

Because the class is fully online students do NOT come to campus, they can work from home, the library, their favorite cafe, or anywhere. All they need is a computer or tablet, and an Internet connection. They will be able to choose from a variety of free software for creating websites during the course.

 

Please this URL with your students. http://www.carolyns.com/gid56 it has the links for permission form, applying and more information. 

The permission form is also attached to this message, and the URL to apply is http://www.foothill.edu/apply/ 

 

If you, your students, or their families have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me at browncarolyn@foothill.edu.

 To sit around a campfire is to participate in one of the most ancient human traditions.  A campfire is the original social network.  It creates a central community focus.  It provides a place to share feelings, thoughts, songs and stories. It gives us heat and light. It cooks the food we eat together. A fire is something to nurture and something to control.  Experience the age old ritual of campfire in Death Valley.  COME GET AN APPLICATION IN E-10 TODAY!035.JPG

Students on the Death Valley trip gain unique insights into Geography, Science, and History. 

The first day focuses on climate and biology.  We start at Badwater, the lowest point in the western hemisphere, and go up to Dante's View (pictured), an elevation above 5,000 feet.  Along the way we investigate the various ways that plants have adapted to the environments we encounter.  

The second day’s focus is Geology.  We hike up Mosaic Canyon and look at how the rocks, mountain ranges, and fault systems have combined to create Death Valley.  Then we go to what many students say is their favorite activity on the trip: hiking the DV sand dunes. 

The third day focuses on history.  We look at the different ways that various human groups have lived in Death Valley.  From Native American petroglyphs to deserted gold mining ghost towns, humans have left an fascinating imprint on Death Valley.

On Day 4 we visit Scotty’s Castle, a beautiful 1920s era mansion, as well as hike up and down Ubehebe Crater, an inactive volcanic feature.

The last day is the Grotto Canyon hike and final exam.

Learn about amazing things in an amazing place!

English 2A 2016-17

Summer Assignment

Welcome to English 2A!

The summer assignment is to read two books. One is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and the other is your choice from the following:

Feed 

by M.T. Anderson 

 

The Book Thief 

by Marcus Zusak 

 

Little Brother

by Cory Doctorow

 

The Last Book in the Universe

by Rodman Philbrick

 

You are to come to class prepared to discuss and write about these novels in the second week of school.

 

As you read the books, think about the theme of the story.  Theme refers to the central idea or underlying message of the text. In a piece of literature it is a message about people, life, and the world we live in that the author wants the reader to understand.

 

However, theme is rarely stated in the text – instead, the reader must usually consider the plot, characters, and setting to infer the theme.  Read the books closely paying attention to any passages that reveal themes, characters, and/or plots.

 

Fahrenheit 451 is readily available at libraries

and online at:

http://kisi.deu.edu.tr/murat.goc/451.pdf

 

Please contact me if you have any questions. I will check my email weekly during the summer.

IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood  a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music.

Thanks to all the 60+ volunteers (SC Students, parents and future students) that made the PTSA Beautification and Tree Planting Day a great success!  Our City Forest gave us all a full demonstration and lesson on tree planting.  Vice Mayor Rose Herrera's representative was there taking photos (Rose had planned to join us but was not able due to a back injury).  The volunteers planted 4 trees in the U Quad and 2 trees behind the D Building.  We also weeded and mulched the rose garden planter and the planter near the Administrative Building. A special thanks to parent James Kawamoto for transporting the mulch, Coach Abrigo for all of his support, Our City Forest, and all of the Silver Creek High School family and student volunteers many representing AVID, Key Club, NJROTC, Mr. Marr’s students, Red Cross, Unicef & CSF.

 

This project and all the beautification projects on our campus are made possible by the generous contributions of PTSA Members.  We would like to do even more!  All donations are greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks again,

 

Susan Williams

PTSA Beautification Chairman

I will also be setting up BCE rep visits with our experts who will be able to give information about the various college's and answer student questions. I have attached the flier and information for our "Cash for College" contest, please have all students apply to win cash.

Silver Creek Bell Schedule Options???

Modified Schedule, Block Schedule, Traditional Schedule????

Silver Creek, what is best for our students??

Join the discussion!

 

Last month, the Silver Creek Site Council decided to form a special committee to gather information and discuss bell schedule options for Silver Creek High School.

  • Who? YOU---open to all interested students, parents, teachers and staff members 
  • What? A forum to discuss the pros and cons of bell schedule options from all points of view: 
    • students, 
    • parents, 
    • teachers, 
    • staff, 
    • as well as subject specific concerns
  • When? & Where?  Just starting to organize; will notify when determined
  • Why? We want to make Silver Creek the best learning environment for our students by discussing all of our options for our bell schedule.

FYI:

 

Santa Teresa introduced a new bell schedule this school year. Here is a link to their research that they did prior to voting for their bell schedule change including links to other schools’ bell schedules in the Bay area, public & private (under Initial Block Schedule Research).https://sths.schoolloop.com/cms/page_view?d=x&piid=&vpid=1425465393541

 

Please fill out the attached google form if you are interested in:

The California Scholarship Federation is now accepting applications for the Spring 2016 semester.

The California Scholarship Federation (CSF) emphasizes high standards of scholarship and community service for California high school students.

Founded in 1921, the California Scholarship Federation is the oldest scholarship institution in the state of California.

Once again we will be involved in a number of community service activities this semester, and hope you will be involved.

Along with the application you will need to submit a copy of your grades from first semester (Fall 2015).  This must be your final report card grades, not one from a grading period. This can be done simply by making a copy of your actual report card (once it comes in the mail) or by having one of your current teachers print out your grades via Infinite Campus (Please do not go to the front office!)  After that turn in the copy to Mr. Taylor's Room E-8

**NOTE** Seniors:  Even if you have been a member for four semesters you must still complete an application this semester.   Life members must have one qualified semester using senior grades **

Applications are due Friday January 22nd, and our first meeting will be on Monday the 25th.
