The Independence High School Athletic Program needs YOUR support! if you need a new mattress, come in to support us on September 29th from 10am to 5pm at the high school. You may be wondering, what is a mattress fundraiser? Here are some of the major points

 

  1. Its the same as the store : You walk in and it literally looks like a store, just in our school.
  2. Customers get the same mattresses as they would in stores : If you or anyone you know who is interested and wants to do their shopping before the event, here are the brands and lines we will have at our event to compare: Simmons Beautysleep, Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Series, Simmons Platinum Series, Simmons Black Series, Englander Renue and Black collections, Malouf Pillows, Malouf Sheets, Malouf Bed Frames, Intellibed, Wellsville Memory Foam Mattresses.
  3. We get a huge chunk of the profits of the event , from people who were going to buy a new mattress anywaysEvery person who is going to buy a new mattress at a store would be missing out on getting the same product as they would get in a store at the same or lower price with us, but they would be supporting us greatly. There are schools that have raised $60,000 doing this around the country and local ones that have raised $20,000 or more all in just one day. All we have to do is talk about it, make sure everyone in the community knows about the event, and make sure those that need a new mattress come in to OUR storefront on the day of the event to buy with us.

 

Attached is a flyer that you can download, bring it in for a free set of sheets wit the purchase of your new mattress.

In just under 3 weeks, the Independence Class of 2018 will be graduating and beginning their lives after high school. As the end of the year approaches, we want to remind our seniors, and all students, that our school rules remain in effect. We ask our seniors, as we ask all our students, to focus on passing their classes and celebrating their accomplishments in positive and healthy ways. Our behavior expectations remain in effect. Behaviors that interfere with the normal school functions or are destructive in nature will result in disciplinary actions and the potential loss of senior privileges for individuals involved. Congratulations to the Class of 2018; we are looking forward to celebrating your graduation with you on Wednesday, May 23rd.

Hello Friends and Families of Independence High School,

 

The Robotics Team of Independence High School from San Jose, CA has recently won 2nd place at the 2018 BotBall Competition. As first-time winners, the team of twenty is dedicated to proceed to the International BotBall Competition at Indian Wells, CA. It is a tournament lasting from July 25 to 29, a total of 7 days and 6 nights.

The team lacks the funding necessary for transportation, lodging and food to Indian Wells, CA. We are a Title-1 school, meaning that nearly 50% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Many IHS Robotics members do not have enough financial support to attend the International Competition. Members from the team are exceptional and love to learn from real hands on experiences. This experience will provide us with another perspective of the tech industry through competing and attending the numerous panels at this International Tournament.

We hope to raise enough money to be able to attend the competition and gain insight on the various aspects of engineering. Please help us reach our dreams by making a small donation on our GoFundMe page (linked below) or posting about our situation on social media.

 

Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

Maxine Lui

Team Captain of IHS Robotics

Take this chance to shine a light on a cause that matters to you; or even nominate a student, teacher or staff member you admire.

Due to a low number of applicants this year, the deadline to submit an application has been extended to this Wednesday, March 21st. With your application, you must send a video explaining your topic and why you believe you would be suitable in taking part of this year's SIDETalks.

SHARE. INSPIRE. DISCOVER. EDUCATE.
 

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 or their community. 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. SIDETalks will be held on Thursday, March 29th during 2nd-7th period. 

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. Take this chance to shine a light on a cause that matters to you; or even nominate a student, teacher or staff member you admire.

INTENT FORM: 
tinyurl.com/2018sidetalks

Digital applications must be turned in by 11:59PM on March 4th, 2018 to lightsontraffickingteam@gmail.com.

You will be e-mailed your application once you fill out the intent form. We wish you all the best of luck and hope to see what YOU have to offer!


Message or contact any Lights on Trafficking officers if you have any questions, comments or concerns. If you would like to nominate anyone, whether it be a student, staff member, teacher or even an outside guest speaker; feel free to let us know!

Hello Independence Family, 

 

The State Board of Education requires that school districts seek community input on their LCAPs so one of my responsibilities is to survey my peers, teachers, and community members in order to better understand their needs in our school.

 

The survey results will be used by both the student advisory and the districtwide advisory committee as we make recommendations on the LCAP, to understand what the community values.

 

Our goal is for 8,000 students, parents, teachers, admins, and community members to respond districtwide.

 

Thank you all very much.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

I am sending a friendly reminder that students are to ONLY be dropped off and picked up in the designated Student Drop Off/ Pick Up areas. No students should be dropped off in the Staff Lot. Safety is a major priority and I am asking you to do your part in helping to maintain a safe and orderly traffic flow pattern while on campus. 

 

 

Thank you,
