Hello VUSD Families,

As you probably remember, VUSD has been evaluating our school start times with the intent to create optimal learning environments for our students. Significant research shows that the circadian rhythm (or sleep cycle) for humans changes during the adolescent years. While young children typically are naturally wide awake early in the morning, teens biologically struggle with waking early, regardless of the time they go to sleep. Research shows that aligning school start times to better fit students' biological rhythms results in improved student performance and success.

VUSD has been evaluating school start times for over two years. This evaluation included: 

  • reviewing extensive research
  • recommendations from health organizations like the National Sleep Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control, and the American Academy of Pediatrics 
  • school district transportation 
  • cost analysis
  • feedback from principals
  • polls for students, parents and teachers

The VUSD Board of Trustees have taken all of these into careful consideration and have voted to adjust school start times for the 2018-19 school year. In the year to come, we will work with VUSD staff, City Coach, athletics, Vacaville Police and Fire and other community organizations in preparation of these new times. We understand that this positive change for student learning requires some adjustments for our families and community partners. We appreciate your willingness to work with us in fitting our educational system to meet students' needs.

More information about school schedules for 2018-19, research, articles, legislation, health tips and news on later school start time can been found here.

 

Hola VUSD Familias,

 Tal vez recordará que nuestro distrito ha estado evaluando los horarios de inicio de nuestras clases con la intención de crear ambientes de aprendizaje óptimos para nuestros estudiantes. Ha bastante investigación que muestra que el ritmo circadiano (o ciclo del sueño) para los seres humanos cambia durante los años de la adolescencia. Mientras que los niños pequeños suelen estar naturalmente despiertos temprano en la mañana, los adolescentes biológicamente luchan con despertar temprano, independientemente de la hora que se van a dormir. Las investigaciones demuestran que la alineación de las horas de inicio de la escuela para adaptarse mejor a los ritmos biológicos de los estudiantes mejora el éxito de los estudiantes.

El Distrito Escorar de Vacaville (VUSD) ha estado evaluando las horas de inicio de clases por más de dos años. Esta evaluación incluyó:

• revisar extensas investigaciones

• las recomendaciones de organizaciones de salud como la National Sleep Foundation, los Institutos Nacionales de Salud, los Centros para el Control de Enfermedades y la Academia Americana de Pediatría

• transporte del distrito escolar

• análisis del costo

• comentarios de los directores

• encuestas para estudiantes, padres y maestros

La Mesa Directiva del Distrito Escorar de Vacaville (VUSD) ha tomado todas estas consideraciones y ha votado para ajustar las horas de inicio de la escuela para el año escolar 2018-19. En el próximo año, trabajaremos con el personal de VUSD, el autobús de la ciudad (City Coach), el atletismo, la Policía y los Bomberos de Vacaville y otras organizaciones comunitarias en preparación de estos nuevos horarios. Entendemos que este cambio positivo para el aprendizaje de los estudiantes requiere algunos ajustes para nuestras familias y socios comunitarios. Agradecemos su disposición a trabajar con nosotros para adaptar nuestro sistema educativo a las necesidades de los estudiantes.

 Más información sobre los horarios escolares para 2018-19, la investigación, los artículos, la legislación, los consejos de salud y las noticias sobre la hora de inicio de la escuela más tarde se puede encontrar en: http://www.vacavilleusd.org/times

Today in history… On September 22, 1776, American patriot Nathan Hale was hanged for spying on British troops. As he was led to the gallows, Hale’s famous last words—inspired by a line from Joseph Addison’s popular play, Cato, reportedly were—”I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.” Hale allegedly spoke these words to British Captain John Montresor, chief engineer of His Majesty’s Forces in North America and aide-de-camp to British General William Howe, while the preparations for his hanging were underway.

Today in history… The United States Congress abolished the slave trade in the District of Columbia on September 20, 1850, as part of the legislative package called the Compromise of 1850. Since the founding of the District of Columbia in 1800, enslaved people had lived and worked in the nation’s capitol. By the mid-nineteenth century, laws regulating slavery in the District were considerably more lenient than slave codes in the rest of the South, but slavery continued to exist in Washington until April 16, 1862. On that day, President Lincoln signed legislation freeing the 3,000 African Americans bound by the District’s slave code.

**STUDENT RECOGNITION**

This week's Student of the Week, nominated by Ms. King, is Janie Wilder! Janie has made a great effort to start this year right and has shown much improvement from last year. It's been a pleasure to have her in AVID and I hope her hard work continues.

 

This week's Senior of the Week is Cat Guerrero! Mr. Lopez nominates Cat because, as a student in Spanish 3 and 4 AP course, she demonstrated the GRIT, focus, dedication, and commitment to succeed academically in class and preparing to address the rigor of AP testing.

Today in history… A series of 4 coordinated attacks were carried out by the terrorist group, Al Qaeda, on the morning of September 11, 2001. 19 militants hijacked 4 California bound airplanes from East Coast cities in the US and used the planes to target major American landmarks. Two planes were crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Center, which caused them to collapse within two hours of being struck. One plane was crashed into the Pentagon building while the fourth plane, thought to be bound towards Washington DC, crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after passengers tried to fight back against the hijackers. The attacks claimed the lives of about 3,000 people and destroyed property worth billions of dollars. The attack was the precursor to the War Against Terror and the War in Afghanistan.

 

**STUDENT OF THE WEEK**

 

This week’s Student of the Week, nominated by Mr. Lee, is Nayeli Quero Cano. Nayeli is a top notch student who excels at everything she does. She’s hard-working, determined, and an excellent role model for her peers. Her always-positive attitude is a thing to behold and she makes everyone around her better and happier.

 

This week's Senior of the Week, nominated by Mr. Knabe, is Holly Andersen. Holly is a charismatic listener and hard worker. And her VUSD Solar Initiative is pretty cool, too! Check The Reporter!

 

 

**MENTAL HEALTH MONDAY**

 

Mental Health Monday Tips and Info:

Suicide is Preventable… Fact is that most young people are suicidal only once in their lives. Most are dangerous to themselves, only for a brief period of time. If someone stops carrying out their plans and shows them where to get help, it’s likely that they will never make another attempt on their lives.

Today in history… On September 8, 1900, hurricane winds estimated at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour ripped across the Texas coastline of the Gulf of Mexico, killing more than 6,000 people and decimating the city of Galveston. During the storm, water swept through sea-level streets; destroyed homes and buildings; and wiped out electricity, roads, and communication systems. As news of the disaster spread, supplies for the residents left homeless poured into Galveston from across the nation. Clara Barton and workers from the American National Red Cross arrived soon after the storm to help coordinate relief efforts.

Today in history… Social reformer and pacifist Jane Addams was born on September 6, 1860, in Cedarville, Illinois. After graduating from Rockford Female Seminary in 1881, Addams left her native Illinois for Philadelphia where she enrolled at the Woman’s Medical College. Poor health caused her to abandon her studies and she spent the next two years as an invalid. After regaining her strength, Addams embarked upon a tour of Europe where she would ultimately find the inspiration for much of her work in social reform in the world’s first settlement house, London’s Toynbee Hall.

Today in history… On September 5, 1882, some 10,000 workers assembled in New York City to participate in America’s first Labor Day parade. After marching from City Hall, past reviewing stands in Union Square, and then uptown to 42nd Street, the workers and their families gathered in Wendel’s Elm Park for a picnic, concert, and speeches. This first Labor Day celebration was eagerly organized and executed by New York’s Central Labor Union, an umbrella group made up of representatives from many local unions. Debate continues to this day as to who originated the idea of a workers’ holiday, but it definitely emerged from the ranks of organized labor at a time when they wanted to demonstrate the strength of their burgeoning movement and inspire improvements in their working conditions.

Today in history… On August 31, 1897, Thomas Edison received a patent for the kinetographic camera, “a certain new and useful Improvement in Kinetoscopes,” the forerunner of the motion picture film projector. Edison and his assistant, W. K. L. Dickson, had begun work on the project—to enliven sound recordings with moving pictures—in hopes of boosting sales of the phonograph, which Edison had invented in 1877. Unable to synchronize the two media, he introduced the kinetoscope, a device for viewing moving pictures without sound—on which work had begun in 1889.

Today in history…On August 30, 1862, the Second Battle of Manassas ended a long campaign in northern Virginia. The campaign had begun when Union forces attempting to invade the Southern capital at Richmond were defeated just miles from the city. After the defeat near Richmond, the scattered Union forces under Major General John Pope clashed repeatedly with the Southern troops under Major General “Stonewall” Jackson. At the August 9 Battle of Cedar Mountain, Jackson’s Confederates outnumbered the Union troops two-to-one. After his easy victory there, Jackson retired from the field as Union reinforcements arrived.

Today in history…At approximately 6:10 a.m., Central Daylight Time, on August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina, a Category 4 storm packing winds of 145 m.p.h., made landfall out of the Gulf of Mexico near Buras, Louisiana, and headed north towards the historic city of New Orleans, Louisiana, and the state of Mississippi. At 8:14 a.m., the New Orleans office of the National Weather Service issued a flood warning stating that the city’s Industrial Canal levee had been breached. Within an hour, the neighborhood known as the Lower Ninth Ward was under six-to-eight feet of water. By then the 17th Street Canal levee had failed as well, and the waters began to rise relentlessly throughout the city. Other levees and floodwalls failed also. By the next day, eighty percent of New Orleans lay underwater, in some areas to a height of twenty feet. And Katrina had moved on, still bearing winds of 120 m.p.h., to wreak havoc across the central Gulf Coast of the United States.

Today in history…On August 24, 1682, the Duke of York awarded Englishman William Penn a deed to the “Three Lower Counties” that make up the present state of Delaware, recently transferred from Dutch to British jurisdiction. Penn acquired this tract of land just west of the Delaware Bay in order to ensure ocean access for his new colony of Pennsylvania. While Delaware established its own assembly in 1704, it was not until shortly after July, 1776, that Delaware became a separate state. On December 7, 1787, Delaware was the “first state” to ratify the new U.S. Constitution, thereby earning its current proud nickname.

August 21 Eclipse Resources!

On August 21 all of America will experience a solar eclipse. Some areas will witness a total eclipse (when the moon entirely covers the sun); other regions will witness a partial eclipse.

The Bay Area will experience a 76% eclipse, with the moon beginning to cover the sun at 9:01 am, reaching maximum coverage at 10:15 am, and then moving away from the sun at 11:37 am.  

Some schools have made plans for students to go outside and watch the eclipse using special solar eclipse glasses and/or cards for pinhole viewing. Please check your school's website to see what kinds of activities are planned.  

If you want to send your child to school with glasses for viewing the eclipse, please be sure to provide designated solar eclipse glasses. Staring at even a sliver of the sun without adequate protection can cause permanent eye damage. (You can find more information about choosing safe glasses on the American Astronomical Society's website.)

The following websites have lots of layperson-friendly eclipse information to share with your families and friends:

Today in history… On May 23, 1865, the Army of the Potomac celebrated the end of the Civil War by parading down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. Only weeks before, mourners watched Abraham Lincoln’s funeral cortege travel the same thoroughfare. With many buildings still dressed in black crepe, this joyous procession could not help but remind spectators of that unhappy occasion.

May is Mental Health Month. The intent of this observance is to bring awareness to growing mental health needs within our culture, and to fight the stigma associated with mental illness.  The Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” has brought national and local attention to issues related to mental illness and suicide.  Please take an opportunity to discuss the attached talking points with your children.  We need to work together to spread the message to our children that help is always available.

5th Period PAWS   

 

Today in history… Johns Hopkins was born on May 19, 1795, in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, to a Quaker family. Convinced that slavery was morally wrong, his parents freed their slaves. As a result, Johns had to leave school at age twelve to work in the family tobacco fields. Hopkins regretted that his formal education ended so early. Ambitious and hardworking, he abandoned farming, and, at his mother’s urging, became an apprentice in his uncle’s wholesale grocery business when he was seventeen. Within a decade, he had created his own Baltimore-based mercantile operation. Hopkins single-mindedly pursued his business ventures. He never married, lived frugally, and retired a rich man at age fifty. A series of wise investments over the next two decades—he was the largest individual stockholder in the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, for example—further increased his wealth. He used his fortune to found Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, incorporating them in 1867.

Dear Parents,

We can never be too careful when it comes to protecting our children.  A dangerous “game” surfaced on social media a while back, particularly with students in other countries. The game is being talked about by student in our schools. 

The “Blue Whale Challenge” app involves the enticement of students into risky behavior that could result in the final challenge of taking one’s life. While we do not know of any VUSD students who are playing it, we want to make sure that you are aware of it.

Evidently, it has been removed from the app store.  We are appreciative of members of the community who brought this to our attention; our children benefit when we work together to protect them.

Sincerely, 

Kim Forrest

Today in history… On May 16, 1868, the U.S. Senate voted 35 to 19, one vote short of the two-thirds majority needed to convict President Andrew Johnson of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” as he was charged under the eleventh article of impeachment. Ten days later, on May 26, the Senate also failed by the same margin (35 to 19) to convict Johnson on articles two and three. At this point the Senate voted to adjourn the impeachment trial without considering the remaining articles. When Johnson received the news, he broke into tears.

Today in history… On May 10, 1865, Union troops captured Confederate President Jefferson Davis near Irwinville, Georgia. Davis and his Cabinet had retreated from Richmond after General Lee’s defeat at Petersburg on April 2, 1865. For several weeks the Confederate government had been in flight from the Union Army. Davis’ plan was to escape by sea from the east coast of Florida and to sail to Texas where he hoped to establish a new Confederacy.

Today in history… On May 9, 1754, “Join, or Die,” considered to be the first American political cartoon, was printed in The Pennsylvania Gazette.

Today in history… On May 8, 1846, General Zachary Taylor defeated a detachment of the Mexican army in a two-day battle at Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma. This victory forced Mexican troops across the Rio Grande River to Matamoros, protecting the newly annexed state of Texas from invasion. Five days later, the United States declared war against Mexico. At the direction of President James K. Polk, General Taylor led American forces on to brilliant victories at Monterrey and Buena Vista.
