Prom is May 9th - Are You Ready?

Prom is next Saturday, May 9th at The Ranch Golf Club from 6:00 to 11:00 pm.  

The prom is a milestone and we want your child's prom to be a truly magical evening!  Please help your child plan ahead and be safe.

  • Participate in your teen's preparations...dress, tux, flowers, etc.  It creates an excellent opportunity for you to start discussing prom details.
  • Talk to your son or daughter about your concern for their health and safety
  • Review the details for the evening...transportation, after hour activities, curfews.
  • Discuss your limits and guidelines.  What are your expectations?  Remember, every teen is different, and what worked a couple of years ago with a sibling, may not work today.
  • Be clear about your expectations regarding drugs, sex and alcohol.  Underage drinking is illegal, as well as possession of drugs.
  • Discuss internet safety and encourage your son or daughter to be careful of what pictures and messages they post on social media while at the prom and throughout the evening.
  • Know who's driving.  If you're renting a limo, speak directly to the driver and discuss how you expect an alcohol/drug free ride...there should be no stops made on the way to or from the prom.
  • Remind your son or daughter that under no circumstances, should they get into a car with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs!
  • Discuss peer pressure.  Remind your son/daughter that it's okay to say no to risky behavior.
  • Make sure to know who your teen's going to the prom with.  Invite their friends over for pictures beforehand.
  • If they will be attending an after-prom party, make sure to get addresses and phone numbers of those hosting the party.
  • Have your child call you if there are any change of plans.
  • Remind your teen that if they run into any trouble, you'll pick them up regardless of the time.

Discussing these safety tips before the prom, can help to ensure a fun, happy, safe and memorable experience!

It's PROM time! Are You Ready?

Prom is next Saturday, April 19 at Villa Regusa in Campbell from 6:00 pm to 12:00 am.  

The prom is a milestone and we want your child's prom to be a truly magical evening!  Please help your child plan ahead and be safe.

  • Participate in your teen's preparations...dress, tux, flowers, etc.  It creates an excellent opportunity for you to start discussing prom details.
  • Talk to your son or daughter about your concern for their health and safety
  • Review the details for the evening...transportation, after hour activities, curfews.
  • Discuss your limits and guidelines.  What are your expectations?  Remember, every teen is different, and what worked a couple of years ago with a sibling, may not work today.
  • Be clear about your expectations regarding drugs, sex and alcohol.  Underage drinking is illegal, as well as possession of drugs.
  • Discuss internet safety and encourage your son or daughter to be careful of what pictures and messages they post on social media while at the prom and throughout the evening.
  • Know who's driving.  If you're renting a limo, speak directly to the driver and discuss how you expect an alcohol/drug free ride...there should be no stops made on the way to or from the prom.
  • Remind your son or daughter that under no circumstances, should they get into a car with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs!
  • Discuss peer pressure.  Remind your son/daughter that it's okay to say no to risky behavior.
  • Make sure to know who your teen's going to the prom with.  Invite their friends over for pictures beforehand.
  • If they will be attending an after-prom party, make sure to get addresses and phone numbers of those hosting the party.
  • Have your child call you if there are any change of plans.
  • Remind your teen that if they run into any trouble, you'll pick them up regardless of the time.

Discussing these safety tips before the prom, can help to ensure a fun, happy, safe and memorable experience!

Prom Safety Tips

The prom is a milestone and we want your child's prom to be a truly magical evening!  Please help your child plan ahead and be safe.

  • Participate in your teen's preparations...dress, tux, flowers, etc.  It creates an excellent opportunity for you to start discussing prom details.
  • Talk to your son or daughter about your concern for their health and safety
  • Review the details for the evening...transportation, after hour activities, curfews.
  • Discuss your limits and guidelines.  What are your expectations?  Remember, every teen is different, and what worked a couple of years ago with a sibling, may not work today.
  • Be clear about your expectations regarding drugs, sex and alcohol.  Underage drinking is illegal, as well as possession of drugs.
  • Discuss internet safety and encourage your son or daughter to be careful of what pictures and messages they post on social media while at the prom and throughout the evening.
  • Know who's driving.  If you're renting a limo, speak directly to the driver and discuss how you expect an alcohol/drug free ride...there should be no stops made on the way to or from the prom.
  • Remind your son or daughter that under no circumstances, should they get into a car with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs!
  • Discuss peer pressure.  Remind your son/daughter that it's okay to say no to risky behavior.
  • Make sure to know who your teen's going to the prom with.  Invite their friends over for pictures beforehand.
  • If they will be attending an after-prom party, make sure to get addresses and phone numbers of those hosting the party.
  • Have your child call you if there are any change of plans.
  • Remind your teen that if they run into any trouble, you'll pick them up regardless of the time.

Discussing these safety tips before the prom, can help to ensure a fun, happy, safe and memorable experience!

Letter from the Superintendent

(Find attached a translation of this letter in Spanish and Vietnamese)

December 14, 2012

 Dear East Side Community,

 The horrific school shooting that occurred today in Connecticut saddens us all.  Our hearts go out to the parents and families.  I want to assure all parents that we have in place safety and security procedures to protect our students and staff.  At this time, our crisis counseling teams are prepared and ready to assist students, parents and staff in dealing with this tragedy.  Additionally, our leadership and local law enforcement are working together to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

 This is a good time for parents to discuss with their children the importance of speaking to a trusted adult concerning matters that they hear about in the media and online and, of course, if they hear of any student or former student making inappropriate or unsafe statements of intent to do harm on any of our campuses.

 In closing, I would like to reassure you that all our staff are trained and well prepared to deal with campus safety, security and student needs.

 Respectfully,

 Chris D. Funk

Superintendent

Medi-Cal Awareness Week: Students may qualify for state insurance

 

We all know that these are difficult economic times.  Many of our James Lick families have lost their jobs, their homes, and their health insurance.  Without health insurance, it can be quite costly if your child ends up in an emergency room.  Does YOUR child have health insurance?
 
This week is Medi-Cal Awareness Week (Nov. 14-18).  Teachers will be asking students whether or not they have health insurance.  Our goal is to contact students who do not have insurance, and give them important information about the three different types of health programs offered by the state of CA - Medi-Cal, Healthy Families and Healthy Kids.   Many families can qualify for one of these programs, even those families with higher incomes.  If you want more information, or want to pick up an application, call the Student Support Center at 347-4460.

Dear Seniors, class of 2011,

If you will be needing a final transcript for college, come in to fill out a form or call her to confirm that your transcript was sent.  Your college acceptance is dependent on that final transcript from high school.  It is your responsibility to meet the school deadlines.

FREE Pertussis (whooping cough) Immunization

A new school immuzation law requires all students entering 7th through 12th grades in the 2011-2012 school year in California to be immunized with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called Tdap.

James Lick is offering a FREE whooping cough immunization! 

The Foothill Community Health Center will be on campus on Monday, May 16 from 9am-1pm.  Any student (and their siblings) can sign up.  All that's  needed is a parent consent form.  The consent forms will be mailed home and will also be available on campus.

Pertussis (whooping cough) FREE immunization:

Monday, May 16

9:00 am - 1:00 pm

                                                    Multipurpose Room                                                          

Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against pertussis.

The new requirement affects all students – current, new, and transfers – in public and private schools. The law has two phases:

  • For the 2011-2012 school year, all students entering into 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grades will need proof of a Tdap shot before starting school.
  • For 2012-2013 and future school years, all students entering into 7th grade will need proof of a Tdap shot before starting school.

Prom Safety Tips

The prom is a milestone and we want your child's prom to be a truly magical eveing!  Please help your child plan ahead and be safe.

  • Participate in your teen's preparations....dress, tux, flowers, etc.  It creates an excellent opportunity for you to start discussing prom details.
  • Talk to your son or daughter about your concern for their health and safety.
  • Review the details for the evening...transportation, after hour activities, curfews, etc.
  • Discuss your limits and guidelines.  What are your expectations?  Remember, every teen is different, and what worked a couple of years ago with a sibling, may not work today.
  • Be clear about your expectations regarding sex, drugs, and alcohol.  Underage drinking is illegal, as well as possesion of drugs.
  • Know who's driving.  If you're renting a limo, speak directly to the driver and discuss how you expect an alcohol/drug free ride...there should be no stops made on the way to or from the prom.
  • Remind your son or daughter that under no circumstances, should they get into a car with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs (or texting, for that matter!)!
  • Discuss peer pressure.  Remind your son/daughter that it's okay to say no to risky behavior.
  • Make sure to know who your teen's going to the prom with.  Invite their frends over for pictures beforehand.
  • If they will be attending an after-prom party, make sure to get addresses and phone numbers of those hosting the party.
  • Have your child call you if there are any change of plans.
  • Remind your teen that if they run into any trouble, you'll pick them up regardless of the time.

Discussing these safety tips before the prom, can help ensure a fun, happy, safe, and memorable experience!

Japan Relief - One Dollar for Life

The news of the Japan earthquake and tsunami was devastating to the world.  Thousands of people are dead and many more are homeless.  The damage will run into the hundreds of billions of dollars.  We MUST help!

James Lick is joining more than 20 high schools in the Santa Clara County to help raise money for the victims of Japan.  One Dollar for Life is a youth organization that began three years ago at Los Altos High School to show teenagers the power they really have if they will just work together.  For just one dollar every year, students have changed the world!  Here are a few examples:

  • built a new school in Kenya,
  • raised 6,000 pounds of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank
  • built an engineered latrine system in Kenya
  • raised $20,000 for relieft projects after the Haiti earthquake
  • collected and sent 452 bicycles to Africa
  • bought 20 piglets to save 20 Nepalese girls from being sold into slavery
  • sent more than 500 pairs of tennis shoes to students in Malawi
  • built new classrooms for a villages in Nicaragua

If you gave only one dollar every year, you could say, "While in high school, I built four schools in the developing world, for about the cost of a latte!" 

Join your fellow students and give one dollar for life!  A table will be set up at lunch time beginning, Friday, April 8.  See Freshmen President, Daryl Cristobal, or any Leadership student for more information.

Health Insurance: Is your student covered?

 

We all know that these are difficult economic times.  Many of our James Lick families have lost their jobs, their homes, and their health insurance.  Without health insurance, it can be quite costly if your child ends up in an emergency room.  Does YOUR child have health insurance?  

This week is Medi-Cal Awareness Week (Jan 24-31).  Teachers will be asking students whether or not they have health insurance.  Our goal is to contact students who do not have insurance, and give them important information about the three different types of health programs offered by the state of CA - Medi-Cal, Healthy Families and Healthy Kids.   Many families can qualify for one of these programs, even those families with higher incomes.  If you want more information, or want to pick up an application, call the Student Support Center at 347-4460.

Prom Safety Tips

The prom is a milestone and we want your child's prom to be a truly magical eveing!  Please help your child plan ahead and be safe.

  • Participate in your teen's preparations....dress, tux, flowers, etc.  It creates an excellent opportunity for you to start discussing prom details.
  • Talk to your son or daughter about your concern for their health and safety.
  • Review the details for the evening...transportation, after hour activities, curfews, etc.
  • Discuss your limits and guidelines.  What are your expectations?  Remember, every teen is different, and what worked a couple of years ago with a sibling, may not work today.
  • Be clear about your expectations regarding sex, drugs, and alcohol.  Underage drinking is illegal, as well as possesion of drugs.
  • Know who's driving.  If you're renting a limo, speak directly to the driver and discuss how you expect an alcohol/drug free ride...there should be no stops made on the way to or from the prom.
  • Remind your son or daughter that under no circumstances, should they get into a car with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs (or texting, for that matter!)!
  • Discuss peer pressure.  Remind your son/daughter that it's okay to say no to risky behavior.
  • Make sure to know who your teen's going to the prom with.  Invite their frends over for pictures beforehand.
  • If they will be attending an after-prom party, make sure to get addresses and phone numbers of those hosting the party.
  • Have your child call you if there are any change of plans.
  • Remind your teen that if they run into any trouble, you'll pick them up regardless of the time.

Discussing these safety tips before the prom, can help ensure a fun, happy, safe, and memorable experience!

Lick helps students to get medical care

May 4-10 is Medi-Cal Awareness Week at James Lick.  We want to improve access to health care, including preventative and early intervention care for our students.  As studies show, student's health impacts school performance.  Poor health results in frequent absences, and in some cases, leads to disruptive behavior, both of which make it difficult to be successful in school.  As we promote Medi-Cal at James Lick, we hope to be able to link uninsured students and families to health services.  

Securing access to health services for children is the first step towards healthier students, healthier schools, and improved learning.  Your child's overall health and fitness are very important to his or her performance in school.

If you would like more information on applying to Medi-Cal insurance or Healthy Families, please contact Ms. Flores, in the Student Support Center, at 408-347-4460.

Popular East Side author dies

James Lick notes with sadness that Art Rodriguez, author of "East Side Dreams," died April 4. He spoke often at James Lick, telling stories and autographing books. His books continue to be popular with students.

Rodriguez did not learn to read or write until well into his adult life, only learning after he had raised a family and established a business. He began writing with the inspiration of his wife.

At the author's website, Rodriguez's family wrote, "It comes with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our father, Art Rodriguez on Sunday, April 4th, 2010. He had great love for all his family, friends and fans. He touched many lives for the best. We hope that his books will continue to be an inspiration to many others."

In 2005, the following article about a visit by Rodriguez was published in The Observer:

Author Challenges Students to Follow Dreams
by Amelia Baca, staff writer

Writer Art Rodriguez gave a presentation in the JLHS library on January 27, 2005 to discuss his books and share some experiences.

Ms. Evans introduced Mr. Rodriguez as a man who can help students "experience the magic of reading" and look up to as a "model of their own lives." Mr. Rice then presented him with a certificate of appreciation.

“I do presentations to get students thinking about where they want to be in ten years," said Rodriguez. He wants teenagers to see themselves ten years from now. He hopes East Side Dreamsinspires students to apply themselves, and know what/where they want to be.

Dyslexic, Rodriguez did not know how to spell or have any basic grammatical skills until seven years ago. His inspiration and teacher was his wife Flora. Rodriguez said he hopes to show his readers that there is still hope and time to change their lives no matter what they have previously experienced.

Although Rodriguez admits to messing up, and making a lot of stupid choices, he was still able to clean himself up and pursue his dream of learning how to read and write. He insists that if students continue their education, they to can follow their dreams.

After a year of hard work, he achieved his goal. He published East Side Dreams, his best selling novel telling the stories of his past. It has the most impact on teens because many teens in our society can relate to his experiences.

“I write like I’m young and when I look into the mirror I get scared [seeing an much older man],” he joked.

Rodriguez hopes East Side Dreams will inspire them to pursue something good in life, and to do it for the passion, not the money. He shined a little light on others to illuminate their dark paths. 

He read a couple of passages to the students from The Monkey Box,a story about his Grandparents and Those Oldies but Goodies, a continuation to East Side Dreams. He also gladly answered any questions that the students had as well as the teachers.

He concluded with, “If you persist, you will be successful.”

Erika Granada,AnaRosa Rodriguez, Tiarra Sanchez and Thyra Phan also contributed to this story. Photo by Anarosa Rodriguez.

HEALTH INSURANCE - IS YOUR CHILD COVERED?

 

We all know that these are difficult economic times.  Many of our James Lick families have lost their jobs, their homes, and their health insurance.  Without health insurance, it can be quite costly if your child ends up in an emergency room.  Does YOUR child have health insurance?  

This week is Medi-Cal Awareness Week (Jan 8-15).  We will be giving a survey to all students asking whether or not they have insurance.  Our goal is to contact every student who does not have insurance, and give them important information about the three different types of health programs offered by the state of CA - Medi-Cal, Healthy Families and Healthy Kids.   Many families can qualify for one of these programs, even those with higher incomes.  If you want more information, or want to pick up an application, call the Student Support Center at 347-4461.

YUDA BANDS!  The Leadership Class is sponsoring the sale of YUDA BANDS.  The name YUDA is derived from AYUDA, the Spanish word for help.  Funds earned from the sales help educate youth, struggling in poverty in Guatemala. The leadership class has chosen a particular student to sponsor and help provide a scholarship for him to attend school, a privilege few students can afford.  YUDA Bands, stylish handmade leather and coconut bracelets imported from Guatemala have been turned into a humanitarian project by YUDA Foundation.  Come see the bands at lunch in the quad and learn more about the project’s foundation and the student you can help send to school.

 

HOLDAY FOOD DRIVE:  The Leadership class is sponsoring our 14th Annual Food Drive to benefit the James Lick Community.  This year we will be working to prepare as many food baskets for James Lick families as possible.  The leadership class will collect canned or dry food in a contest amongst 4th period classes.  The 2 classes that collect the most items will receive a Pizza Party.  These prizes are presented by the leadership class.   The food collected will be distributed along with turkeys donated by the East Valley Lion’s Club. 

 

Some suggested items:

canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned soups, canned tuna, canned milk, oatmeal, mashed potatoes (boxed), rice, beans, pastas, etc. 

NOTE:  5 bags of Ramen Noodles will count as one item

 

CAR SHOW!  James Lick, in cooperation with R S Hydraulics and Street Low Magazine, will be having a Car Show on Sunday, December 6th from 11:30am to 4pm.  There will be a car hopping contest, awards, live music, and food and drink booths as well as some of the most beautiful, tricked out cars and bikes from around the South Bay.  Cost is $10 to get in, $5 with a student I.D. card.  Come enjoy the day and see some fantastic cars!

 

YEARBOOKS!  Yearbooks are on sale now at the school bank.  The price has gone up to $35, which is still almost $45 cheaper than last year.  HURRY AND ORDER NOW!  Prices will go up again, and this year if you don't order in advance you probably won't be able to get a book. 

 

THE PROM!  It is time to buy your Prom Bids for only $65!!!  Prices will go up so buy NOW!  You can purchase your bids at Mr. Romo’s office.  Once again prom bids now on sale, $65 for limited time.  Buy them now!

GOOD LUCK CROSS COUNTRY!  Today is truly a great day to be a comet!  Yesterday, your James Lick Cross Country team went up against 24 schools and finished very well.  The Boys Frosh/Soph team placed 6th overall – the best team performance of the day and tied with Mt. Pleasant for the overall championship in the West Valley League!  The Girls JV and Varsity B claim overall victory in the West Valley League, and Ana Tapia will qualify for CCS (that is unofficial as of now).  The Boys Varsity Team, captained by Eric Lopez, went on to crush Mt. Pleasant, Del Mar, Gunderson, San Jose, Branham, Lincoln, and Yerba Buena for the 2009 West Valley League Championships.  Yesterday we beat Mt. Pleasant by 33 points and Del Mar by 55 points and qualified for CCS.  This will continue our winning tradition of continuing on to CCS for our 26th year!  Great job, Mr. Porter and the entire Cross Country team!  We're very proud of you!

 

 

HOMECOMING GAME!  There's a reason why our halls are beautiful and we're dressing crazy every day this week!  It's all leading up to the big showdown on Friday night against San Jose High School!  JV action begins at 4:30pm.  Varsity kicks off at 7pm. 

 

WRESTLING!  Official wrestling practice has begun. Practice starts at 3:30 in the wrestling room everyday. We are searching for girls to be part of the team, we have had several girls on the team in previous years who have done very well.

We are returning league champions and we want to repeat, so we need athletes who want to work hard and be part of  a winning tradition. If you have questions, see coach Jimenez in room P-1.
