May 2017 - Jeff Moe, Board President

This month, Board President Jeff Moe attended the 10th annual English Learner Speech Contest at Fremont High School, the annual GOALS Student Recognition Lunch, the Cupertino-Fremont-Sunnyvale Council of PTA's 58th Annual Honorary Service Awards Ceremony and Dinner (where Cupertino High School Principal Kami Toberlain received the Administrator of the Year award), the 2017 Taiwanese Cuisine Expo, the Cupertino vs. Monta Vista baseball game (with Cupertino moving forward to CCS), staff recognition lunches at each of our school sites and the New Teacher Celebration hosted by the Fremont Educational Association. 

"The typical profile of a GOALS student is one who immigrated to the US at a young age and quickly acquired English verbal skills.  However, their English reading and writing skills did not develop as well, partly because of a disconnect with their early educators. The lag in reading and writing skill development often had an adverse effect in other areas of their education. Through leading-edge assessments of students’ literacy skill level, students are placed in the GOALS program. But that is only the first step in the process. The most inspirational part of the process is how hard the students work to improve their literacy skills while maintaining their regular courses, and how dedicated the teachers are to encouraging the students in the process. Every awardee, many of whom had only limited success in their early years of school, now aspire to continue their education onward through college." - Jeff Moe, Board President

May 2017 - Roy Rocklin, Trustee

This month, Trustee Roy Rocklin attended the Homestead High School Orchestra Concert. Trustee Rocklin shared that the HHS students, led by John Burn and Jeffrey Morton, were excellent. The concert included a Sinfonia by Mendelssohn which he wrote when he was a teenager (about the same age as the student performers) and several pieces featuring soloists: Meiqi Wu on flute, Elizabeth La on Viola and Julius Buonnano on cello. The concert concluded with a rousing rendition of Beethoven’s Egmont Overture.

Trustee Rocklin also served as a judge for the English Learner Speech Contest at Fremont High School. 

"I was impressed by the ability of our EL students to present a memorized speech in English, which is to them a foreign language. I was moved by a speech delivered by a girl from Sri Lanka. She spoke about her experience as a refuge from the civil war in her former country and about living in a refugee camp in Thailand. It reminded me of the challenges immigrants face in America. I am proud of the Fremont Union High School District teachers, staff and other students who welcome these students and help in their transition to becoming Americans." - Roy Rocklin, Trustee

April 2017 - Jeff Moe, Board President

This month, Board President Jeff Moe attended a panel at Comic Con entitled, The Future of Education: How immersive, interactive 3D technologies are changing the way students learn. The speaker, Mark Andersen, a Co-Founder of Lifeliqe, creator of virtual reality  and mixed reality devices, has put over 1,500 students, teachers and librarians into Lifeliqe's learning experiences in virtual reality and mixed reality. Lifeliqe is headquartered in San Francisco and most of their field work has been with Bay Area schools.

"What struck me was the potential for this tool to help students in Special Education. Just like the touch pad was a break-through product in Special Education, virtual reality and mixed reality could also have a big impact." - Jeff Moe, Board President

President Moe also attended the Fremont Education Association (FEA) dinner, where the District's teaching staff and retirees are celebrated, the Santa Clara County School Board Association's 2017 Hoffmann Awards program, the Fantastics Rally at Fremont High School and an open house at West Valley Community College featuring an exhibit on California Wild Flowers. The mural at the exhibit featured in the picture below was painted by Lynbrook High School alumni parent Debbie Bakker. 

April 2017 - Barbara Nunes, Trustee

Over 120 community members were in attendance at the Hat’s Off Luncheon organized by Quota International of Cupertino. Board member Barbara Nunes was chair of the event and acted as emcee. The Quota Club raises funds to help the hearing and speech impaired as well as disadvantaged women and children in this area.

April 2017 - Jeff Moe, Board President

In April, Board President Jeff Moe attended a discussion with Board colleague Bill Willson, Superintendent Bove and legal counsel around the subject of ride-sharing for students. Adopting some type of ride-sharing solution could potentially ease traffic around our schools and help solve some of the transportation challenges currently faced by parents and students. Trustee Moe also attended the City of Saratoga State of the City address, where the City Council honored their Parks and Recreation teachers and the many faith expressions in the community, and the annual Red, White and Blue Awards Ceremony at Lynbrook High School. 

"My favorite part of the Red, White and Blue awards was watching the wide variety of student styles, mannerisms, expressions and cultures. Despite their differences, each student seemed comfortable in their own skin. To me, that demonstrates a healthy and well-run environment where differences in people are accepted and embraced." - Jeff Moe, Board President
