Cupertino High School senior Allyson Chiu recently testified before the State Board of Education to encourage the adoption of expanded classroom instruction to include information about prominent gay people and LGBT rights milestones in history classes.  This addition is being considered by the State Board of Education along with a broader review of California's history and social studies curriculum standards.

 

Allyson testified that the proposed revisions would go a long way towards helping LGBT students fell more comfortable at school.  She shared that, "My classmates can solve quadratic equations or cite the elements on the periodic table.  They can't tell you who Harvey Milk was or the significance of the Stonewall Riots."

After twelve years of dedication to the Fremont Union High School District -- and forty years serving educational efforts -- Academic Deputy Superintendent Kate Jamentz will be retiring on June 30, 2016.  The innovation, deep thinking, and collaborative work that are the hallmark of Kate's FUHSD tenure are deeply woven into the FUHSD fabric and phrases that now so easily roll-off the tongues of FUHSD staff members as if they had always been known include the FUHSD belief statements, "intelligence is malleable", "guaranteed and viable curriculum", and "all means all". They are signs of the difference that Kate has made at FUHSD and throughout the community.  

 

FUHSD Superintendent Polly Bove commented that, "I cannot envision a more intelligent, strategic, focused, dedicated, or passionate leader to have had at my side over these past nearly twelve years than Kate. She has inspired and challenged us to set high expectations for our students and ourselves and provide all students with rigorous classroom experiences."

 

In celebration of the immeasurable difference that Kate has made while at FUHSD,  a new award has been established: the Dr. Kate Jamentz Award: Ensuring Excellence Through Collegial Collaboration.  Each year this new award — and the only FUHSD award named for an individual —  will be given to a FUHSD team that exemplifies the best in collaboration and achievement.

One hundred and thirty-five instrumental music students from Lynbrook recently performed at Carnegie Hall, which included their performance of a world premier piece (Tranquillo by Christopher Lowry). The adventures also included multiple other New York City performances, seeing Les Misérables on Broadway, and taking a scenic dinner cruise. Lynbrook High School band director Mike Pakaluk described the trip by saying “The performances at Carnegie Hall were a highlight of my career as a teacher and a musician. The stage brought out terrific musicianship from our students. Multiple parents from other groups, as well as directors and the World Projects representatives, approached me after the LHS performances to say how impressed and even "blown away" they were by the quality of the Lynbrook groups.”

For many, it is very difficult to consider giving a speech in public.  However, consider just how much more challenging it would be to write and deliver a speech in a language that is not your first language.  And yet, that is the task that over three hundred FUHSD students take on and master in connection with the annual FUHSD English Learner Speech Contest.  

 

The contest provides an opportunity for students who are new to this country or who have very limited English skills to select a topic, prepare a speech, and present the speech before judges.  Hundreds of students from throughout FUHSD participate in this event and deliver either an informative or persuasive speech.  Top scoring students advance from two preliminary rounds to the final round which determines the final standings.  An elaborate and spirited awards ceremony concludes the evening.
