River City High School presents It's a Wonderful Life, a live radio play Thu-Sat Dec 7-10

This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. Due to some adult content (discussion of suicide, etc.) as well as the slower pace of the action, the show is not recommended for children.

Dates and times:

Thu. December 7th 2017, 7:00 pm

Fri. December 8th 2017, 7:00 pm

Sat. December 9th 2017, 3:00 pm

Sun. December 10th 2017, 3:00 pm

Pricing

Adult - $8.00

Student - $6.00

Running Time: 90 minutes

For more information and to purchase tickets in advance, go to

To commemorate the 230th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution on September 17, 1787, River City will join schools around the country to observe National Constitution Day on Monday, September 18. Congress established Constitution Day in 2004 with the mandate that all public schools provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution. The weeks of September 18-29 are also California Voter Education Weeks. In California, students can pre-register to vote as early as age 16 (although they can’t cast a ballot until they turn 18).

 

All members of the River City community can help fulfill Congress's mandate by at least acknowledging the day with their students and highlighting the importance of being knowledgeable about our government, our rights, and our obligations as citizens.

At this point in time, our school district has brought in counselors and support personnel to assist teachers and students throughout this ordeal. Support services are available for students and teachers for the remainder of this week and in the future for grief counseling for anyone who needs it.

A candlelight vigil for the children will be held Thursday, September 14th, 7PM at Southport Elementary School, 2747 Linden Road, West Sacramento.

Washington Unified Reassures Community in Response to DACA Repeal

WEST SACRAMENTO—The Washington Unified School District (WUSD) today issued a statement regarding the President’s decision to suspend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that protects undocumented children of immigrants from deportation.

This recent decision is a cause for concern creating a multitude of emotional responses from our students and families uncertain of the impact this will have in their lives. 

Our schools always have been and will continue to be the cornerstone of our community providing our hard-working families the opportunity to pursue their dreams of a successful future. 

The Washington Unified School District together with countless other local and statewide agencies will continue to support and protect ALL students regardless of their immigration status upholding our Safe Haven Resolution approved by the Board of Trustees on February 16, 2017.

We are fully committed to supporting our families with any concerns for their future.

Each school has a support system and staff in place to help our students with any anxiety or fear. Each school is staffed with a part-time Social Worker and Outreach Specialists in addition to our teachers, campus safety monitors, support staff and administration. Please talk to your children about the safety and support staff available at school. Our employees stand ready to support and help.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Tuesday that the Trump Administration is rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an American immigration policy created by the Obama administration in June 2012. DACA allows certain undocumented immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit. The Attorney General stated that no action would be taken until after 6 months have elapsed, potentially allowing Congress to take some action before March 5, 2018.

Understandably, students may be concerned about their own status or that of a loved one or friend. Some resources and links are attached here. If you have questions, staff members Cynthia Cisneros (Room 703) and Estella DeLaTorre (Career Center) are available for assistance. You are not alone, and you have support on our campus.

DACA permite a ciertos inmigrantes indocumentados ingresar al país como menores a recibir un período renovable de dos años de acción diferida por deportación y elegibilidad para un permiso de trabajo. El Procurador General declaró que no se tomaría ninguna acción hasta después de transcurridos 6 meses, lo que podría permitir al Congreso tomar alguna medida antes del 5 de marzo de 2018. Comprensiblemente, los estudiantes pueden estar preocupados por su propio estado o el de un ser querido o amigo. Algunos recursos y enlaces se adjuntan aquí.

(EdSource, Aug. 29, 2017) The California Department of Education now hopes to publicly release statewide results of the Smarter Balanced assessments in math and reading by Sept. 13, after a delay caused by inaccurate data received from its test contractor.

The new date is more than two weeks later than the originally expected public release date of Aug. 29. The department first announced the postponement last Friday, citing a “recently identified data issue.” At that time, no new date was announced.

By Tuesday, department officials clarified that results for about 25,000 special education students “had been associated with a different district from where they were tested,” causing the department to recalculate the statewide data. The department discovered the problem after sending test results to the more than 1,000 local districts “during a preview period to ensure accuracy of the information when it is released to the public,” said department spokesman Bill Ainsworth.

However, he added that results provided to districts through the state’s Online Reporting System “are accurate.”

[The Sacramento Bee, August 27, 2017. By Laura Brill.] The health of our democracy depends on widespread participation. We all need an understanding of how our public institutions function and how to make our voices heard.

But our country suffers from a serious deficit in basic civic knowledge. Political engagement by young voters is especially low. With the start of the school year just around the corner, it is sobering to realize how much more we need to do to address these problems....

That citizens can pre-register to vote beginning at age 16 is one of the best kept secrets in California. Our 16 and 17 year olds spend most of their waking hours (at least once summer ends) in high school. Emails and website links from high schools encouraging these kids to register to vote would seem to be the bare minimum schools should eagerly do to encourage civic engagement.

Aug. 3, 2017, The Sacramento Bee, By Alex Koseff. Aiming to help thousands of students who get sidetracked in developmental courses that don’t count toward their degrees, California State University will do away next year with traditional remedial education....

CSU also plans to eliminate the placement tests it used to determine students’ readiness for college-level work. Skills assessments will instead be based on high school grades and standardized test scores.

For more information, see the story in The Sacramento Bee at http://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/capitol-alert/article165342632.html

Student Google accounts, including WUSD student email and Google Drives, have been disabled for the summer, with the exception of those students attending summer school. Accounts will be re-enabled when school starts in August.

When you return, you can expect some changes in the Chromebook environment such as new icons and apps in the Chrome Shelf (easy access icons at the bottom of the screen), Chrome Stores with updated apps and extensions, a Single Sign-On for all user accounts, as well as password and security enhancements. District IT will be providing more information in August.

These decisions are made at the District level, and school staff do not have the ability to access your accounts over the summer. Melissa Oliver, the Coordinator of Instructional Technology, is the district point-person for these projects.

As of today, May 10, 2017, we want to share with you the latest information regarding the Norovirus (stomach flu) from the Yolo County Public Health Department. The virus has indeed reached each of our schools in West Sacramento and it’s important that our community work together taking precautions to limit spread.


Attendance rates across our entire school district are normal for this time of year and in fact, well above 90% for ALL schools in WUSD. While we do have students and adults absent with virus-like symptoms, we are taking every precaution to ensure the spread is limited.  

 

WHAT WE ARE DOING

  • Children or adults on campus with symptoms are being sent home immediately.
  • DO NOT wait for confirmation of the Norovirus—anyone with virus-like symptoms must remain home and follow the same precautions.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Children and adults must be symptom-free for 48 hours before returning to school. 
  • If your symptoms go away in 2 days, you need to wait an additional 2 days before returning to school.
  • WHY? The Norovirus remains active in the human body even after symptoms go away—48 hours is needed to ensure the virus is not still active.
  • ALL schools are being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Raise awareness and practice good habits! 
  • Wash hands regularly using soap and water
  • Clean all areas that have come in contact with a sick student or adult.
  • Notify your school and tell them your child’s symptoms.
  • Consult with your doctor for any questions and let them know that other students at your child’s school have these symptoms.
  • Stay hydrated! Fluid is lost in diarrhea and vomiting. Make sure you and your child is able to drink fluids.

Dear WUSD Parents, Guardians and Families,

As many of you may already be aware, the Sacramento region and now Yolo County are encountering a gastrointestinal illness (GI) outbreak, more commonly known as the stomach flu. The most common cause of widespread GI illness is Norovirus however, the organism causing the present outbreak is unknown at this time. The Yolo County Public Health Department is working diligently to identify the organism.

The virus has indeed reached our schools in West Sacramento but is not currently widespread as in other areas of our region. We have about 15 instances being reported of students and/or adults feeling the symptoms of the stomach virus. Common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps, and can last for 1-3 days. 
What should parents do? 

  • If you or your child develops these symptoms, keep them at home until they are no longer vomiting, experiencing diarrhea and/or fever and nausea. They must be free of symptoms for 48 hours.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after contact with vomit or stool. Hand sanitizer can be used if no water is around. However, it is not a replacement for using soap and water.
  • Clean all areas that have come in contact with diarrhea or vomit. Use a ten percent bleach solution (5 teaspoons to one cup of water) or a disinfectant that kills viruses.
  • Notify the school and tell them your symptoms.
  • Consult with your doctor and let them know that other students at your child’s school have these symptoms. The doctor may want to take a sample of your child’s stool.
  • Contact the school if you have more questions.
  • Fluid is lost in diarrhea and vomiting. Make sure your child is able to drink fluids. If your child becomes weak or is unable to drink fluids, seek medical care.

Caps and Gowns

Caps and Gowns are still available through jostens.com.  If you prefer not to purchase your own cap and gown, River City High School has caps and gowns that students may borrow.  These caps and gowns are clean, but gently used.  Students borrowing a cap and gown must return the cap and gown before they can pick up their diploma.  See your student’s counselor to request to borrow a cap and gown.

Cap Decoration Instructions 

Students MAY decorate their caps for the graduation ceremony.  Graduates may decorate the TOP of their cap only.  Decorations may not contain crude or offensive language, gestures, pictures or illustrations. Cap decorations are not to be disruptive or take focus away from the solemnity of the graduation ceremony.  Cap decorations may be 2 dimensional only and may not extend beyond the edge of the cap or rise more than a half inch off the top of the cap.  No 3D decorations that stick up from the top of the cap or hang over the side of the cap.  Electric or battery operated lights or sounds are not allowed as part of cap decorations.  Decorations need to be able to withstand outdoor sun, wind and temperature.  Cap decorations will be reviewed by administration during check-in at Raley Field.

Items Not to Bring

The River City High School Graduation ceremony is a momentous occasion in all of our graduates’ lives. We ask that the graduates and the audience respect the seriousness of the occasion by not bringing the following items:  air horns, noise makers, balloons or large items that obstruct others’ view of the ceremony.  You may bring flowers or leis for your graduates for after the ceremony, but they may not carry or wear these items during the ceremony.  Leis or other items taken from the graduates before the ceremony are not stored in a secure area and it is not the school’s responsibility to return items.

Audience: Homepage and Mock Trial

The River City Mock Trial team finished local competition Wednesday night with its best record in over 20 years by defeating St. Francis High School in the final preliminary round of the Sacramento County tournament. The defense side's victory gave the team a 3-1 overall record, defeating Laguna Creek High School in a prosecution win and John F. Kennedy High School in a defense opening round. The only loss came to the prosecution side in a narrow margin, losing to Jesuit by .37%.

Students were awarded MVP honors at the end each round. Seniors Liam Stack, Ivy Tillich, Trhemson Desean-Concepcion and Taher Rhuma were recognized with round MVPs.


The team consisted of Ivy Tillich, Alexis Villanueva, Trhemson Desean-Concepcion, Liam Stack, Tatiana Nikolaeva, Andrew Rice, Hal Jourdan, Alexis Tellez, Kalim Salim, Patrick Bibica, Taher Rhuma, Hunter Cradit, Jesus Tellez, and Yulissa Magallanes.

The team had hopes of facing another Yolo County school for the first time in 10 years, but a young Davis High team dropped out of the tournament after the first round. River City remains the default Yolo County champion, and does not advance in the Sacramento County tournament playoff rounds. The Raiders did not enter in the state tournament this year, but have applied to compete in the inaugural Golden State Mock Trial invitational tournament featuring some of the elite teams in the state in Sacramento in April.

By Raider Reporters - The girls’ varsity soccer team finished their season a game early, having their last game against River Valley HS cancelled due to the danger of flooding posed in recent days in communities downstream of the Oroville dam.

   The Raiders had another strong season with a record of 16-6-2, 7-3-1 in TCC conference play, sending the team into the playoffs. The game is scheduled for the 22nd with their opponent still to be determined.

   Coach Kamal Singh credits the hard work of the players for their success, a tight-knit group that has learned to play collectively as a sisterhood.

   “I’m proud of how much this team has accomplished in a short period of time,” said Singh.

   Team chemistry led to an impressive 106-29 goal scoring differential for the season.

   “Our greatest strength is is our speed as a whole and our team bonding,” said senior Itzel Geronimo.

   Junior defender Catalina Avalos also feels this team has speed and works together adding, “I love when we play with heart.”

   Attacking with heart is what junior forward Sydney Schultz has done all season, putting pressure on the opposing defense that led to 49 goals and 12 assists.

   “We play as one unit, we respect each other and we share our goals for this season,” said Schultz.
