Ho, ho, ho, Sixers! It's that magical time of year again — Independence's annual Holiday Spirit Week! 

With the fresh smell of peppermint lattes wafting around every corner, with night drives through neighborhoods lit up with Christmas lights, and with Christmas trees in every household, we're bringing a little bit of that holiday magic to Independence. Every day will bring a new activity to Senior Stage, so stay tuned for the festivities to come!

Monday — Merry Christmas Morning:
— To kick off the week, make sure you're comfy and cozy by rolling out of bed and into your Christmas-themed pajamas, fuzzy socks, and loved stuffed animals.

Tuesday — Ugly Christmas Sweater Day + Christmas Airband:
— Find the ugliest Christmas sweater you can dig out of your parent's closet, and wear it proudly as you watch the annual Twelve Days of Christmas Airband on Senior Stage during Lunch!

Wednesday — Holiday Scrabble Day:
— A game inside a spirit day? Grab your friends, find the word that sums up the holidays for you, and spell it out! From angels to yuletide, the possibilities are endless!

Thursday — Flannel Day:
— It's Fall! Come to school in your plaid printed flannels and dress cozy!

Friday — North Pole Day: 
— Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without Santa's helpers, diligently making sure the holidays run smoothly! This is class representation time, so make sure you show that class spirit and dress up accordingly!
Freshmen: Snowmen
Sophomores: Elves
Juniors: Reindeer
Seniors: Santa

Sixer Linkers Club is Independence's own peer mentoring program. 

 

We know many students, especially underclassmen, lack guidance. They struggle with classes, extracurriculars, and/or personal problems; they struggle to navigate a successful high school pathway. 

 

By pairing upperclassmen mentors with underclassmen mentees, we aspire to cultivate long-lasting peer-to-peer relationships and provide underclassmen with the support, guidance, and relationships to make the most of their high school experience. 

 

We need freshmen/sophomores to sign up as mentees. If you can, please spread the word of this program to your students OR, if any students come to mind, please recommend them to become mentees and encourage them to sign up!!

 

Mentees (freshmen and sophomores) can sign up here: https://goo.gl/forms/emzN9BGrdhn4TDBx1

PREPARING STUDENTS FOR FUTURE SUCCESS

 

To protect the quality of education and continue strong student achievement, the East Side Union High School District Board of Trustees is considering a $49- $79 local school parcel tax measure for the June 2018 ballot. No final decisions have been made; a measure would provide locally-controlled funding that cannot be taken away by the state to support our students directly.

 

A potential measure would maintain career and technical education pathways for college and career success. Help attract and retain high-quality teachers and staff. Protect and enhance hands-on science programs. By law, none of the funds could be used for administrator salaries. 

 

Please complete the online survey here and share your feedback.

 

The District welcomes your comments and questions as it evaluates the needs of our schools and develops a plan for protecting the quality of education. Please email parceltaxinfo@esuhsd.org or visit our page if you would like to learn more.

Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. A lot of the time, these children live in third world countries and do not have access to surgeries that can fix their deformities. As a result, many of them cannot eat, speak, socialize, or smile properly, and they are looked down by others.

 

As a club, Operation Smile will raise money to help fund surgeries. Come to K-33, Ms. Westlake's room, at lunch on Tuesday, October 10 to find out what you can do to help. Hope to see you there!!!

Hey SIXERS!!!

 

Get to school on time and don’t cut classes. You may think it doesn’t matter to blow off your first or last class of the day, but it does. Even occasional skipping leads to dramatically lower grades. And it sends the wrong message to teachers about your desire to succeed.

 

Attendance Matters.

On Time. All Day. Everyday.

Lights on Trafficking presents SIDE Talks! 

 

The purpose of SIDE Talks is to provide a wide range of individuals, including young, avid students with an opportunity to share their inspiring story or cause with high school students at our school. This is your chance to help others discover that there is much more to life than good grades or the SAT, or our same old daily routines.

We are looking for topics from a broad spectrum, so we encourage anyone. including you, to apply even if you have any uncertainties. For example, we would welcome the topics of education, transcending major obstacles in life regarding health or domestic life, the evolution of social media and its effects on society, homelessness, or even your own personal story (and etc.).

For one day, we will be coming together to share issues that would typically sit on the sidelines or lay dormant in our own minds. Through this medium, we aspire to shift the topics of conversations and thoughts for one day, or even for a lifetime. We invite you to seize this opportunity to contribute to the beginnings of an involved and empowered community.


The SIDE Talks event will be happening April 7th, 2017 from period 2-7 in the C-Commons. We are inviting any interested students to apply to speak and take the initiative to inspire others around us. 

Once you fill out the intent form: https://goo.gl/forms/AltQrxjaA4wR773p1

We will send you a follow up email with a short application to get a brief summary of your topic. For the seniors out here, this is your last chance to leave a lasting impression on the underclassmen, why not take the chance. 

 

***The last day to turn in the application to speak is March 27th to K-34, Mr. Elwell's room***

HEY HEY, SIXERS! 

 

Did you know that slavery still exists? 

 

Today, it is known as human trafficking -- the practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation.

 

Since 2011, the United States Senate has designated January 11th as National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, prompting UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) to declare January to be a month dedicated to Human Trafficking Awareness in order to help prevent this cruelty that nobody should have to go through. 

 

And so, IHS UNICEF like to invite you to come to our club meeting on Friday, January 13th during lunch in K-35 so that you, too, can learn how to combat the modern-day cruelty that is known as human trafficking. We'll be having a special guest speaker directly from UNICEF! 

 

Human trafficking is prevalent even in the Bay Area. Attending our meeting may help equip you with the knowledge that could potentially save someone else's life.

Special Credits: Lights on Trafficking Club*

*Lights on Trafficking is a club that focuses directly on spreading awareness about the unequal rights and conditions of individuals who are forced into modern day slavery.

 

If you want to learn what you can do to help raise awareness about human trafficking all-year round, attend the meetings held every Wednesday in K-34!

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

I am pleased to introduce Naviance/Family Connection – a comprehensive website that you and your student can use to make plans about colleges, and careers. 

 

Family Connection allowed your student this year to complete an online personality assessment called “Do What You Are.”  The purpose of the survey was to help students understand their personality type. When individuals have a better understanding of their personality type, they will be able to research careers, majors and colleges that are compatible with their personality so that the likelihood of their success in their career choice, major or college is higher.

 

What is the importance of having students complete the “Do What You Are” survey?  Students will have a better grasp of what they must do now to prepare for the future.  By the end of January, the Counselors will work with students to build a four-year education plan.  The four-year plan will lay out the foundation to help students plan their schedule next year. In addition, they will create a schedule that will help them achieve their goal whether it’s graduating high school, be eligible for a four-year college, or preparing them for their career of interest.

 

In the year to come, Naviance/Family Connection will allow Counselors to share information with you and your student about upcoming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other resources for college and career information.  This year we have created accounts for students, but parents will most likely have access to manage your own account next year.

 

We hope that you will find this letter helpful. If you have questions about Naviance/Family Connection, please contact your child's counselor.

 

Ms. Huynh

Hello fellow 76ers. 

 

This is Coach Papin Head football coach of your Varsity Football Program.  I wanted to reach and and share our fundraising efforts with you since I don't believe many football players reached out to you.  We are currently raising money for the football program while supporting school spirit.  We are during a fundraiser called Fancloth. We are selling SIXERS apparel varying from football to basic school spirit apparel.  I left some forms in your school mailboxes but didn't have enough for everyone so I have attached our online store where you can purchase apparel. http://www.order.fancloth.com/95133/181082  When asked about students name just place mine this way I'll know it's from a faculty staff member when the orders come in.  Thank you in advance and GO SIXERS!

Did you know that California is the sister state to Guangdong, one of wealthiest provinces in China?

 

Every year, over 10,000 dogs, both abandoned and adopted, are kidnapped and sold at the annual Yulin Dog Meat festival.  Despite these events being illegal, the government does not bat an eye to these horrific events.  Many may say that eating dog meat is considered a way to get food on the table in Guangdong, however, it is actually considered a luxury (an average of $65 per dog) (source: Yang Xiaoyun, a retired school teacher. paid ¥150,000 in 2014 to rescue 360 dogs, ¥150,000 is equivalent to $22,500)

 

To help rescue these inhumanly treated dogs, No Pets on Plates's goal is to raise money to rescue these them.   Imagine if this was your dog stolen from your own back yard and eaten.

 

Join us for our first meeting in Mr. Johnson's room, M-54 with a special presentation from our founder, Andrea Gung on Wednesday, August 31 at lunch!

1. When you get a free/reduced meal letter from the district office this year, take a photo of it and store it somewhere so you can qualify for fee reduction on AP (and other tests)

 

2. If you know you will take the AP exam, register now instead of waiting. 

 

Why?

-it's done an you don't have to stress-out about it in the spring

-unforeseen complications with paying can be worked out ahead of time

-preparing for the exam becomes a firm goal in your mind and this will help you do better in class

To All Students:

 

Driving to Independence High School and parking your vehicle at school requires a school-issued parking permit and is a privilege, not a right.

 

Student parking permits must be obtained within the first ten days of the school year. After that the permit must be obtained prior to driving the vehicle to school. Permits are to be obtained in the N-1 office from Ms. Holguin. 

 

The parking lots are off-limits to all students during school hours. Loitering and hanging out in the parking lots are not allowed. Independence is a closed campus so there are no in-and-out driving privileges during the school day.

 

Students are not permitted to use their vehicle as a locker or as a storage place for items that will be needed during the school day.
