Our Unified basketball teams are practicing every Friday in preparation for our upcoming games against the OHS Unified teams on June 7th. There will be 2 games played that day so please be on the lookout for details so you can come out and show your support!!!

The students from Ms. Magallanes and Ms. Soto’s classes had spent all last week learning about the job of firefighter and what they do for our community. They were then able to end the week with an amazing presentation with a visit from Captain Spence, Engineer Aguirre, and Firefighter Gilson from Oxnard Fire Department Station 4 last Friday. This included being able to see the gear/equipment, and engine firsthand, as well as shoot water from the hose!

Key Club

Key Club members chomped down on lemons yesterday as a part of an awareness and fundraising campaign for ending tetanus that kills mothers and babies around the world. The fact that neonatal tetanus kills one baby every 11 minutes is something that the Eliminate campaign (Key Club, Kiwanis, and UNICEF) is working on to immunize 100 million people – so our pucker-faced Key Clubbers are doing their bit by taking their sour bite!

FACTS:

  • Neonatal tetanus kills one baby every eleven minutes—approximately 34,000 newborns every year.
  • To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million must be immunized to protect themselves and their future newborns. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more.
  • It will take US$110 million—and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.

Peer Resource

Mrs. Wolfe would like to congratulate her Peer Resource class and especially three students for successfully handling a Conflict Mediation on Monday, May 7. Two students were referred to conflict mediation by former Peer Resource teacher, turned assistant principal, Mr. Salehi.   The two students agreeing to the mediation were treated with respect, kindness and professionalism by their Peer Resource mediators: -Joshua Carranza and K’lian Casey, both outstanding 9th graders. The note taker was sophomore Hanna Aparicio. Thank you to Mr. Salehi for using this powerful intervention option and congratulations to Joshua, K’lian and Hanna for a job well done!
