School Snippets (new 12/1)

Vine Hill Bear Bytes:

Vine Hill Bears are Super Stars:

-The generosity and compassion of the students and families helped raise $1650.75 through our UNICEF coin drive to benefit hurricane victims in the Caribbean. Bay Federal Credit Union was very patient with Mrs. Ebert and Ms. Walsh when they spent extended time at the coin machine turning in the cash.

-Thank you to the community members who voted for Vine Hill in the Press Banner Faves and Raves 2017. Vine Hill was voted the Fave of all public schools in the Valley. Your support is much appreciated.

From the Eagle’s Roost:

Brook Knoll enjoyed a wonderful week off from school to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Some of the items we are thankful for are:

-Firefighters!  When our brave firefighters are not battling flames, they visited Brook Knoll to educate our students on fire safety.

-Sheriff Deputies!  Our kind Sheriff department not only keeps on an eye on our campus while we are away, they help out with traffic issues, and they are currently working with our 2nd graders reviewing general safety tips.

-Field Trips!  We were so lucky to enjoy educational adventures at the Aquarium, O’Neill Sea Odyssey, Yesterday’s Farm, and Long Marine Lab before the break and have many more to come.  Remember – if you plan on driving on a field trip, be sure your volunteer clearance is finalized and up-to-date and that your driver information (license, insurance, and registration) is current.

-Students!  We are so thankful for all of our wonderful students and appreciate them being at school and on time.  Please remember, to excuse an absence (ex:  ill, medical, etc) you must contact the school within 72 hours.

-and finally, we are thankful for our students’ parents!  We recently completed the Parent-Teacher conferences and are very happy to say that it was very well attended.  Thank you parents for being involved in your student’s education!

The Dolphin’s Dish:

-SVMS would like to congratulate Phoebe Clifton. She won first place in the Bookshop Santa Cruz Young Writer's Contest with her essay, Tides of Change. Phoebe won in the 10-13 age group.  She will receive a Bookshop Santa Cruz gift certificate and her work will be published in a collection at the Bookshop. Phoebe will also be invited to read her winning essay on Bruce Bratton's Grapevine Radio program on KZSC.

-SVMS math teachers are hosting our first Math Night for Parents on Wednesday, December 6th from 6:30-7:30pm, room G.  This evening will allow parents to experience a typical Common Core math lesson.  This is an RSVP event and parents can find further information on our website.  RSVP at https://tinyurl.com/parentmathnight

From the Falcon’s Nest:

Congratulations to the 2017 SVHS Football team.  These young men earned their way to the CCS Semi-finals with a hard won victory against Soledad.  In the semifinal game they played underdog to Menlo Park.  The players played their hearts out, led the entire game, and lost in the last minute to a spectacular throw and catch that was perfectly defended.  A splendid effort, the players and coaches left it all out on the field and came home at the end of the season with their heads held high.
