Hellyer Elementary is hosting a multi-cultural potluck celebration on April 29, 2017.  Volunteers are needed from 12:30pm-7pm.  Volunteers can work any part of the six and a half hour shift to help with children’s craft tables and if they have adult volunteers help with serving food (we’ll alternate every 30-45 minutes so volunteers can enjoy the Celebration)!

 

They plan for this to be an exciting event for the district and in addition to requesting volunteers they hope families will also be interested in attending!  

 

Attached is a copy of the flyer.

 

If you are available to volunteer, please call Stephani at 408-659-5412 to confirm.

Guests will be treated to a special performance by International Recording Artist and Hellyer Elementary Alumnus: Kimball Hooker. We're also very excited to have performances by cultural wonders, McKon Dance: Kathak Indian dance; The Music Place: Children's Choir; Spoken Word Artist: Lorenz D.; and professional dance instructor, formerly of Arthur Murray Studios, Trev R. teaching Salsa.

Children of all ages are guaranteed an afternoon of fun with cultural games and crafts like the Scarf dance; and Batik Art (tie dye) instruction by Indian Artist: Mrs. Mathangi Sundararajan.

The following message was broadcast via Infinite Campus Messenger on Wednesday, April 26:

 

Good evening, this is Greg Louie, Principal of Santa Teresa High School with a reminder about the Class of 2017 Grad Night event planned for Tuesday, May 23.  Please be aware that tickets are $60 this week, but the price will go up to $85 next week.  The event will include great food (chocolate fountain, catered luau, tons of snacks, mocktail bars, and a sunrise breakfast), live DJ, casino, photo booths, and all night entertainment.  

 

In addition, the Seniors who attend Grad Night from 10pm-5am will be excused from school on Wednesday, May 24.

 

The Class of 2017 Grad Night will be a great all-night party put on by our parents to keep each graduating member of the senior class off the street and in a safe, alcohol-, tobacco-, and drug-free environment, yet free to celebrate their achievements and enjoy one last class party with their friends and classmates.

 

Finally, we need as many Seniors as possible to buy their tickets this week so that we know if there is a demand for an event like this.  Thank you and I hope you have a great evening and a fantastic end to your Senior Year!

The following message was broadcast to Seniors and their families on Saturday, April 8, 2017 via Infinite Campus Messenger:

 

​Good afternoon Seniors and Senior Families:

 
This time of year, Seniors begin to plan their Senior Pranks and Senior "Ditch Days."  
 
Please let me be clear: any Senior Prank that results in extra work for my staff, that vandalizes the school, or is done in such a way that inconveniences or offends others will result in serious consequences (ie. Saturday School, loss of Senior Prom, loss of graduation ceremony participation, loss of Senior Grad Night, etc.)
 
For example, it has come to my attention that some Seniors were planning to bring their dogs and pets to school on Monday, April 10.  Please understand that the only animals allowed on campus are certified therapy animals.  Any students who brings an animal to school (any day of the year) that is not certified to be on campus will need to take their animal home or risk it being collected by Animal Control.  Likewise, if the student misses school to return their animal home, they will be assigned a Saturday School to make up the missed time.
 
Rather than contemplating a "Senior Prank," I encourage our Seniors to come together to do something productive and positive rather than destructive and distracting.  The Class of 2017 is a special class and a poorly thought-out prank will tarnish your legacy.
 
In addition, there are no "approved" Senior "Ditch Days."  Seniors who miss school between now and the end of the school year may be required to attend Saturday School to make up for the unexcused absence.  I also ask that parents and guardians not "excuse" their Senior to attend Senior "Ditch Day."  We have Spring Break coming up and if Seniors really wanted an end of the year bonding activity, it should be done during Spring Break.
 
The end of the Senior year of high school can be wrought with temptation and bad choices.  The Senior Prom, Senior Grad Night, the Graduation Ceremony, and other events are privileges--they are not rights.  Please end your four years of high school on a positive note and please do not put me and my Administrators in a position where we must take away any of your Senior Privileges.
 
Thank you for your cooperation.

Dear High School Campus Partners, 

 

We hope this message finds you well. 

 

The Fiat Lux Scholarship interviews are coming up on April 5-8, 2017. Students from your high school may be eligible for this prestigious scholarship. However, we are working with a very quick timeline in which your student will receive their admissions decision on Thursday, March 30 and sign up to interview for the Fiat Lux Scholarship for the following week. 

 

We write to you in hopes that you can help us reach your students who have applied to UC Berkeley and urge them to check on their portal for a decision about admissions on Thursday, March 30. In their admissions decision letter, if admitted and if they have financial need, they would be invited to sign up for a Fiat Lux Scholarship interview. 

 

We will be conducting a phone bank on Friday, March 31 to make sure all eligible candidates have read the invitation and sign up. We have a limited number of spots for the interviews so please let your students know to sign up as soon as possible. 


If you have any questions, feel free to reach us at fiatluxscholarship@berkeley.edu

 

Best Regards,

 

Yesenia

Dear High School Campus Partners,

 

The Financial Aid and Scholarship team at UC Berkeley hopes that you are having a successful fall semester. As your offices have been preparing your excellent students to apply to universities all around the country, we want to encourage that your students apply to UC Berkeley. UC Berkeley is a wonderful research institution with amazing students, faculty, and staff. We genuinely want students from our partner high schools to apply and attend UC Berkeley.

 

To assist students with affording the cost of college, we created a new scholarship program. The new Fiat Lux Scholarship program has combined the Cal Opportunity scholarship and the Incentive Awards Program. The new program will maintain the best programmatic elements from both programs. The Fiat Lux scholarship will help the students financially and help them to be successful at UC Berkeley. We have attached a one page summary of the new Fiat Lux scholarship with more details about the program.

 

Please note that there is no application needed for the Fiat Lux Scholarship. Students will be considered once they are admitted to the university. Our office will review their financial aid package to determine their need and they will be invited to interview for the scholarship in April. The interviews will take place on the UC Berkeley campus.

 

The Fiat Lux Scholarship is a great opportunity for your students. All students should have the ability to attend the school of their choice without having to worry about the cost the education. This scholarship will enable students to pay for school as well as equip them with a supportive community to help them be successful at the UC Berkeley.

 

Please encourage your students to apply to UC Berkeley. We hope to see them in April, interviewing for the Fiat Lux Scholarship. We are here to assist you as well, so please feel free to contact us about any questions you may have about the new Fiat Lux scholarship.

 

Sincerely,

 

Yesenia and Tamisha

Hello Amy Choy,

 

My name is Robin Sharma and I am reaching out to you to see if it were possible to share some summer opportunities we have for the City of Morgan Hill. We currently have positions open at the Morgan Hill Aquatics Center such as: Lifeguard, Swim Instructor, and Welcome Desk Assistant.  

 

We wanted to see if it were possible to help us share this information to your students and/or I can come by during lunchtime and promote these seasonal positions. We recently had a job fair but wanted to reach out to high schools in San Jose closest to Morgan Hill if students were interested. As you may know, these seasonal opportunities are a great way for high school students to gain summer work experience and to prepare them for college. If this is something you’d think your students would be interested in please let me know.

 

The link to learn more about these positions and to apply please visit http://www.morganhill.ca.gov/277/Recreation-Jobs and click “job opportunities” under the How to Apply section. If they require assistance in using the application system, please refer to this Online Employment Application Guide.
