CREATE (Construction, Redevelopment, Engineering, Architecture Trades Education) mentors high school students to pursue careers in construction, engineering, architecture, and building trades. River City's CREATE team spent the school year working closely with seven mentors from the industry on researching, analyzing, designing, building, and presenting a scale model of a state of the art Farm-To-Fork facility. Their hard work paid off last night at the awards banquet. Students on the team included Treasure Acevedo, Claire Hoffman, Leslie Garcia, Jagjit Singh, Nahefa Sayed, Niurka Garcia, and Luis Alverez. Four members received scholarships ranging from $750 to $1,000 and Treasure Acevedo received the leadership Award.

Parents: River City High School is administering the California Healthy Kid Survey to all 9th and 11th graders between March 27-April 7. Your students will receive a consent form in their classes to take this very important survey on school climate and connectedness. This survey guides the high school in designing interventions for students and making positive changes to our high school environment. If you did not receive a consent form or your student did not give it to you, here are English and Spanish copies of the consent form.

 

The California Healthy Kid Survey requires only passive consent by parents for their students to participate. If you DO NOT want your student to participate, you should return the consent form. Otherwise, you don’t need to return it. 

 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the River City High School office, (916) 375-7800 ext. 2075.

 

Thank you,

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.

   The JROTC programs (Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps) incorporate awards programs that mirror the US military, where members can earn ribbons, medals, and badges that they wear on their uniforms.  This provides visible recognition of achievements, as well as allows commanders at a glance to see who has experience in what areas and who are their best troops.

 

   There are 61 different ribbons the cadets can earn (see attached chart).  We have a cadet guide that explains the criteria for each one.  Most are awarded at the unit level (by the school JROTC instructor), but some come from the JROTC headquarters or outside patriotic organizations.  Attached is a spreadsheet we use to track the awards RCHS cadets have earned – the number in a cell represents how many times that cadet has earned that particular award.  When someone earns an award a second/third/ect time then they get to put a metal device on the ribbon (usually a star or oak leaf).  The farther to the right in the spreadsheet, the more important the award.  The last column are awards sponsored by private organizations.

 

   The more common awards are:

 

   Dress and Appearance – A’s on all uniform inspections

   Attendance – no more than 3 absences, no Unexcused

   Good Conduct – no detentions, no cell phones to office, no reported classroom disruptions, etc.

   Academic – A in AFJROTC, and 3.0 term GPA

   Color Guard – present flags at events

   Activities – participate in multi-school JROTC events

   Patriot Flag – participate in a ceremony honoring the US flag (9/11 Display on Southport, old US flag disposal)

   Longevity – pass an AFJROTC class

   Health and Wellness – pass the Physical Fitness Test

   Leadership School – attend the summer program

  

   Badges can be earned for academics (3.3 GPA), Rocketry, Awareness Presentation Team, and Flight solo wings. Ropes (warn on shoulders) can be earned for Color Guard, Drill Team, and the winner of the last uniform inspection.

Rugby season is just around the corner; the boy’s and girl’s rugby teams are hosting a 7’s scrimmage (touch) this Sunday, October 16th from 930-11 am on the back fields. This will be a friendly game intended to help new recruits become familiar with the game. We are putting flyers up around school, but if you could print one off and post it in your room I would greatly appreciate it. If you know of anyone that is interested in playing please encourage them to come out this Sunday and just check it out. I particularly want freshman and sophomores (since I would love to have a dedicated JV side).

Dear Washington Unified Families and Staff,

We want to make you aware that the Washington Unified School District (WUSD) has been monitoring the recent online situation where characters dressed as clowns are making threatening social media posts aimed at educational institutions nationwide.

The District is aware that some of these posts are being seen and/or received by individuals in our community and we have been actively working with the West Sacramento Police Department to investigate. As such, it is very important to take note that there is no immediate or credible threat to our schools and community. These threats are being circulated on a nationwide basis and are not specific to WUSD or West Sacramento. 

We do not, however, take these threats lightly and will continue monitoring social media in order to advise law enforcement of these posts and ensure that they are included in the investigation. We would also like to encourage you to engage in open dialogue with your children about the seriousness of this type of behavior. 

Be proactive and extremely vigilant of strange behavior in the community as well as information being circulated online. In this age of technology, we all have access to an abundance of information on the internet, and it is important that we have conversations with our children about questioning that information, where it comes from and the manner in which it is delivered.  

The safety of our students and staff is always our top priority. If you witness any suspicious activity, in or around a school site, please contact your local school and school principal. We will continue to keep you updated with any developments regarding this situation. 

Sincerely yours,

Linda C. Luna

Superintendent

Washington Unified School District

Dear RCHS Raider Families,

On Sept 22 Yolo County District Attorney’s office will conduct a live DUI trial on campus.  Our hope is that by witnessing such an event our students will learn about the dangers and consequences of driving under the influence.  Every year, families across America live though very tragic events involved with driving under the influence.    We hope this experience will make our students aware of those dangers and discourage them from such behavior.

Effective July 1, 2016, students entering kindergarten or 7th grade (known as “vaccination checkpoints”) must be vaccinated and can no longer rely on a personal belief exemption (“PBE”).  Students who have a PBE may be “grandfathered in” if they are not entering kindergarten or 7th grade.  However, once a student rises to the 7th grade, that PBE will no longer be accepted.  There are generally two exceptions to the vaccination requirement: (1) obtaining a medical waiver from a doctor or (2) enrolling the student in independent study or homeschool (non-classroom based instruction).  Districts should ensure that students entering kindergarten or 7th grade on or after July 1 show proof of current vaccinations. 

 

However, the law does not prohibit students from accessing special education or related services required by their individualized education program.  Some school districts have constructively exempted special education students from the vaccination requirement since the districts are legally mandated to provide services to students who qualify for special education and related services, and failure to do so could leave the district open to legal challenge.  However, other districts have insisted all students, including those receiving special education services, be vaccinated. The State or CDE has yet to clarify the intent of SB 277 regarding students receiving special education services.

 

Should you have any follow-up questions or comments on this information, please feel free to contact either our Southern California office at (714) 573-0900 or our Northern California office at (916) 245-8677 or visit our website at www.parkercovert.com.

On Tuesday, April 26th, senior Austin Roberts pitched a complete-game no-hit shutout in a 6-0 win over Inderkum High School at RCHS’s Baseball field, throwing a total of 97 pitches with two walks, one hit batter and did not allow a runner to reach second base.

                According to varsity baseball coach Clint Brill, it is only the fourth no-hitter thrown in the history of River City/Marshal High School varsity baseball. The others pitchers being, Robert Dodd, David Trussell, and Lorenzo Pineda.

“It is an awesome feet that Austin and the team accomplished. Memory of a lifetime,” said Brill.              

River City jumped to a three run lead in the first inning and added two more runs in the second. The sixth run was tacked on in the bottom of the sixth when the no-hitter was starting to seem like a real possibility.

Junior catcher Kamron Johnston, who called the whole game from behind the plate, said, “I wasn’t really thinking about it, I was just focused in the moment.”

Coincidentally, a twelve year old Johnston was playing third base when Roberts threw a perfect game in West Sacramento Little League.

                Most of the pitches Roberts was throwing were fastballs and sliders and he recorded eleven strike outs in 7 innings. He struck out the side in the fourth, retiring their 3, 4 and 5 hitters.

                Every no-hitter has important defensive plays that save the pitcher’s effort. Johnston made a great play on a bunt down the first base line to throw Inderkum’s fastest runner out by a step.

 Junior second basemen Sebastian Salazar made a big league play on a ball hit sharply in the 3-4 hole. Salazar scooped it up and just had enough time for a glove flip to senior first basemen Austin Jacobs, getting a big out in the 3rd inning.

                Along with their strong defense, Roberts was able to help the team with his bat as well. He went 2-4 with two big hits to left field, knocking in 3 RBI’s. Roberts is batting .577 (15-26) over his last 8 games, with 12 RBI's.

                Other notable hitters in the game were senior Ryan Walstad who went 2-2, with 2 walks, a double, a triple, and 3 runs scored. Walstad has been on a hot streak, notching his 9th straight multi-hit game batting .576 (19-33) during this stretch, with 15 runs scored. Remarkably, he has reached base safely in all of River City's 18 games, has scored at least one run in 17 games, and has hit safely in 16 games.

                Roberts’s no-hitter and the league victory against Inderkum comes at a critical moment in the season as the Raiders are competing for a spot in the post season playoffs. It was a signature moment for Roberts whose historic career for River City is nearing its end and he moves on to pitch at Sac State on a scholarship next year.

                “Thanks to my teammates and to Kameron for calling a great game. And thanks to my coaches for leaving me in the game,” said Roberts.

Maia Dua, was selected from five finalist as Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War -- Girls Reforming the Future Challenge" Grand Prize Winner and will participate in a week-long internship at Marvel Studios. Over 1,000 young women from across the nation accepted the challenge to use science and technology to create a project that would create positive world change for their generation and beyond. Maia developed a “seeing eye” robot as a cost-effective and durable alternative to a seeing eye dog. The self-propelled, echo-locating “Seeing Eye-Bot” is made of readily accessible materials, making it more available to individuals of limited financial resources. Maia designed the seeing eye-bot to require minimal maintenance and to have a functional life span in excess of 7 years. Maia hopes her invention can address the needs of the visually impaired, who may be unable or unwilling to own a seeing eye dog.

Maia will spend a week at Marvel Studios, learning firsthand how STEM skills are being used in innovative and creative ways to produce some of the world’s all-time favorite characters and films.

Dear RCHS Nation -- April is an important month for RCHS, that's when we will do our Common Core "Smarter Balanced" testing to see how well our 11th grade students match up to the California Standards. It is a very different test than the California Standards Tests (CST) students took when they were in elementary. Students take this new test online and they must research, write, and solve problems. Questions measure the critical thinking skills students need for college and careers. More than 220 colleges and universities use Smarter Balanced test scores as evidence that students are prepared for entry-level, credit-bearing coursework.

 

Moreover, these test scores will help inform teachers about their instruction by identifying where students need more support to meet students’ individual needs. The testing window opens on April 13 and closes April 29, and during that time it is critical that students are at their best. To ensure that students perform at an optimal level, families can help us by doing the following:

 

1. Make sure students get a good night’s sleep during testing weeks. If they are rested they will perform better.

2. Make sure students get to school on time so that students are focused. Students who have to make up tests often struggle to complete them.

3. Please make sure our students have a nutritional breakfast. Nutrition does make a difference when it comes to performance.

4. Students should come to school dressed appropriately and focused on success.

5. Encourage your students to do their best.

6. Stay positive!

 

We know that our students can rise to the challenge if we as a community rally to support student success. Thank you for your support.

The River City High School Engineering, Science, and Technology Academy is one of seven model programs selected out of over 400 statewide to receive the special distinction of a 2016 Distinguished California Partnership Academy (CPA). 

1907952_10154587063094018_808806657581125884_n.jpg
“This award is huge for River City High School—it’s huge for our District,” said Linda C. Luna, WUSD Superintendent. “Our partnership academy puts kids in the driver’s seat and challenges them to develop the 21st century skills and knowledge they need to be successful in a competitive world outside of the classroom.

8096af80-314f-4327-bf3d-182b7a571ce2.jpg

The programs have been thriving for more than 30 years but this is the inaugural year for the awards with less than two-percent of CPAs being selected to earn the Distinguished Academy status.

California Partnership Academies implement high quality educational programs mixing core academics and career technical education. All 411 CPAs underwent a rigorous review process conducted by the California Department of Education and the College and Career Academy Support Network at the Graduate School of Education, UC, Berkeley.

The Engineering, Science and Technology Academy at River City high School is designed to give students hands on experience using industry-specific equipment and technical skills while demonstrating on the job critical thinking and problem solving. Students are eligible to earn credits through Los Rios Community College.

Honorees were recognized today at the Sacramento Convention Center during the Educating for Careers Conference / California Partnership Academies Conference, an annual three-day professional development event surrounding career technical education with nearly 3,000 educators and industry professionals in attendance.

The ASVAB test will be administered at River City High on Friday, February 19 from 8:20 to 11:30 am. The deadline for registering to take test is February 12. See Mrs. Dellatorre in the Career Center to sign up. There is no cost to take the test.

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple choice test administered by the US Military that is used to determine qualification for enlistment in the Armed Forces. The test is a pen and pencil exam assessing general academic ability, college readiness, vocational and electronic knowledge, and even clerical skills. At River City it is offered to juniors and seniors. Although the test is administered by the military, it is not (and never has been) a requirement that a test-taker with a qualifying score enlist in the armed forces.

The ASVAB is one of the most reliable assessments of general student ability and may be useful for any student to see where their strengths and weaknesses are, not just those who are interested in the military. There is no obligation for students who take the test to enter the Armed Services, but they do have to agree to allow the results to be released to the different branches of the military. The military provides River City with a counseling report that is made available for each student ranking them by percentile in comparison with other Juniors and Seniors across the United States.

Thank you, Malcom Floyd.

Chargers coaches and players wore special t-shirts Friday in honor of Floyd, marking the final practice of the receiver's NFL career. Malcom is a Class of 2000 graduate of River City High.

"Thank you #80" was emblazoned on the dark blue shirts.

Floyd, who began his NFL career in 2004 with the Chargers, has said his last game will be Sunday in Denver.

He found out about the tribute when he saw the jerseys throughout the locker room. They were coach Mike McCoy's idea.

"It was a shocker; you know how shy I am; I was like, 'Why'd you do that, coach?' " Floyd said. "That means a lot to me. I appreciate coach and I appreciate my teammates. Just the respect level from them is awesome, but like I say, I'm just a normal guy. I just go out there and try to carry out my job.

On the front of the blue jerseys is a picture of Floyd, leaping, pregame, at Jack Murphy Field.

McCoy said he requested 150 shirts, "but there's an order for more now. Everybody wants them."

The coach said Floyd "loves the team" and is "one of the most unselfish human beings you'll be around."

Receiver Steve Johnson, who played for Buffalo and San Francisco before joining the Chargers last spring, said Floyd is a special teammate who makes the job feel less corporate.

"It's kind of strange -- you don't feel like you're going out there playing football with a football player; you go out there playing with your friend, like your childhood-type times, like you're going out there playing street," Johnson said "There's nothing professional about it, but we're in this professional world. He gives you that feeling like, 'Hey man, let's just go out there and play football. Just have fun and get back to basics.' "

Amid his blue-clad teammates Friday, Floyd wore a white jersey. During early drills open to the media, he caught several passes in the red zone and threw down a few dunks over the crossbar.

"I enjoyed it," he said, "but at the same I just tried to stay focused."

Floyd has caught 30 passes for 561 yards, a team-best average of 18.7 per catch. He has three touchdown catches.

By Julissa Valdez. The West Sacramento Recreation Center is offering a lifeguard certification class that begins on March 30th and ends on April 3rd. The class qualifies you to be eligible to work as a lifeguard and emphasizes best practices and safety procedures.

            According to Recreation Center Supervisor Brandi Dionne, the main skills they look for is to be focused, the ability to multi-task, and to be able to watch people both in the pool and on the deck.

The duty of a lifeguard is more than just a job, it can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.

“We had 25 rescues in summer of 2014 which were all distressed swimmers or swimmers coming down from the water slide who needed a little extra help to find their bearing and get above water,” said Dionne.

            Many of the lifeguards that are hired at the Rec Center are current or former RCHS students with experience on the swim and water polo teams. The training coincides with the high school’s spring break vacation. 

“10-15 students usually get accepted from River City,” said Dionne.

Although the certification course does not guarantee you to be hired as a lifeguard, it is a great opportunity to receive specialized training and meet the Rec Center personnel.

To register for the class or to receive more information, contact the Rec Center at 916-617-4770 or visit their website at www.westsacfun.org

           Finals for the first term of the 2014-2015 school year are rapidly approaching, and as students are fighting to cram in as much information as they possibly can, Brett Hatfield, Integrated Math 1 teacher, in cooperation with Ms. Schroeder, have come up with an after school event to encourage students and teachers to interact outside of class.

            Several teachers are going to instruct a hobby that they are personally interested in for an event called 'Hobby Hoping'. They will teach two sessions of their hobby after finals. Session #1 will be from 1:00-1:40 and the second session will be from 2:30 to 3:00. At the end of the second session, students and staff will meet for free ice cream in the cafeteria.

            "The hobby hopping is a way for students to interact with teachers on a more personal, fun level," said Hatfield. "Students and teachers rarely get time to get to know each other and have fun outside of class."

The hobbies range from things as basic as telling jokes to things like swing dancing to knitting and even how to play 'liar's dice' from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie 'Dead Man's Chest'.

If this event is successful, Hatfield hopes to have another 'Hobby Hopping' session, although hopefully expanded onto a much bigger scale. Possibly to even take an entire school day to spend on a similar event, like some schools do.

            "I think the best games are easy to learn and hard to play well," says James Colligan, stats teacher who is teaching liar's dice. "I really love making bets such that someone thinks something is wrong. There's a moment where someone makes a bet and you all reveal the dice and then just to watch that person's face sort of... crash with disappointment, it makes me really happy."

River City High School Journalism Class

NEWS-LEDGER — DEC 31, 2015 –

River City senior Aaron Wise broke the varsity football single season reception record this season with 46 receptions. The record was previously set by Malik Dumetz in 2013.

Before Malik, the record had been set by Malcom Floyd, who is now a receiver for the San Diego Chargers.

“It feels amazing because I never actually thought I’d break a record,” said Wise. “I just wanted to play and have fun and work harder to try to get better.

Now that the football season is over, Aaron is setting goals for his future. He is hoping to be accepted into the U.S. Air Force Academy which, through a difficult application process, requires a nomination from a member of Congress.

“It’s a really big deal…the Academy is basically like a university but sponsored by the military. It’s really hard to get into that school and that’s why they interview you,” said Wise.

U.S. representative for California’s 6th congressional district Doris Matsui has nominated Wise for the Academy and after being interviewed by a representative, he felt optimistic about his chances at being accepted.

“The interview was great and straight to the point. During the interview it was like a college asking me standard questions. I felt comfortable knowing all I had to do was answer the questions honestly,” says Aaron.

Aaron is now waiting for a response via email about being accepted into the academy. If his hard work on the football field was able to pay off by breaking a record, Aaron is hopeful of achieving his next goal.

River City Varsity Wide Receiver Coach Mark Uy said, “I’ve never seen anyone work harder than Aaron. He worked himself to be a great football player. Great in the classroom and great on the field.”

Local authorities have issued a severe weather alert for late Wednesday through Friday, particularly for heavy rain, high winds, and potential flooding. As of Wednesday morning, school is scheduled as usual.

In the event of an emergency situation, our first priority is the safety of students and staff. Once safety is assured, families will be notified about emergencies affecting the schools their children attend.

 

Multiple methods are used to communicate with families in an emergency.  We use ParentLink, an automatic phone dialing system, to get information out rapidly to families of students at one school or the entire district. To ensure that you receive messages, please make sure that the school your student(s) attends has the correct phone numbers on file.

 

In addition, schools are collecting e-mail addresses from families to implement ParentLink's email notification feature. Both systems planned to be used in the event of an emergency. Please ensure that the school your student(s) attends has the correct e-mail address on file.

 

Informational letters may also be sent home either through US mail or directly with your child.

torlakson 2.jpg
By: Laura Asatryan and Rebecca Schwartz

 

A group of local high school journalism students gathered at the Department of Education in downtown Sacramento for a lively Q&A session with California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.

 

This event gave schools in the Sacramento area participating in the Scholastic Journalism Initiative a chance to experience real, hands-on journalism. This project is in collaboration with The Sacramento Bee and the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) to restore and improve student journalism programs in California public schools, according to the SCOE website.

 

Students asked Torlakson questions during his current reelection campaign. Torlakson is running against opponent Marshall Tuck. Tuck’s campaign advisors have also agreed to meet with the student group via video conference scheduled for the 21st.

 

During the conference Torlakson answered questions and spoke briefly about his personal life and experience as a former teacher and coach. He plans to further improve California schools by bringing teachers, parents, students, and the community together by investing in schools to develop smaller class sizes, stronger academics, and focusing education funding towards local schools and the educational community as opposed to politicians, according to his website.

 

“Our system overall is doing well. We have a lot of work to do; when we’re 48th and 49th in the nation per pupil spending, that’s wrong. [For] a state of this capacity, that’s a disgrace in so many ways that a state of our wealth and capacity isn't investing more in education,” said Torlakson.

 

The Superintendent also mentioned his intentions to appeal a recent court ruling that California teacher tenure laws are unconstitutional. Teacher tenure currently protects teachers who have shown a successful completion of a two year probationary period from being fired without due process.

 

Although supportive of teacher tenure, Torlakson remains committed to supporting high quality teachers for all students.

 

“We need to show the good things that are going on, the bright minds that we represent need a quality education because we know that wherever you come from, whatever faith, whatever race, geographic place of origin, that you have the potential to succeed,” says Torlakson.

 

During the event Sacbee reporter Alexei Koseff, gave his thoughts on how well the student journalists performed, and while he noticed the students asking some good, well thought out questions, he had some advice to give to aspiring young journalists.

 

“I could tell how nervous people were to be asking some of the questions. I had the exact same problem in the beginning so you just have to work on doing as many interviews and press conferences as you possibly can. The more you do the more comfortable you'll be being the first person to speak up,” said Koseff.

 

"Use the power of your voice and your pen to write about it [issues that are important]," said Torlakson to River City High School journalists after the conference, "You can inform your neighborhood, your school and maybe the district about this.”

In November 2000, River City graduate Joe Chairez was living his dream as an officer for the Sacramento Police Department, a month away from completing his field training. Then, without warning, Joe collapsed after handcuffing a suspect and died the following day.

 

Currently in production, Joe238 is feature-length documentary film about how one family turned the devastating tragedy of the loss of their son into the promise of life for others. This is the story of Jess Chairez, who is faced with the most difficult moral decision of his life when his 24-year-old son, Joe – a rookie policeman - suddenly dies of a brain aneurism. When Jess Chairez says "yes" to organ donation, he sets into motion a process that will save the lives of five strangers, and help to transform his own grief into a mission of compassion that impacts more lives than he could have ever imagined.

 

Joe Chairez was a class president and he played football and golf at River City. The production will feature interviews with many people from West Sacramento who knew, taught, and coached Joe; Coach Chris Baker has been interviewed for the film. Joe238 is directed by local filmmaker Colleen Stymeist-Wood and produced by Lizet Fernandez. You can follow the progress of the film's production from the following links:

Wanted by the Sacramento FBI: High School Juniors
Nov. 21 Sacramento FBI Teen Academy Applications Due Oct. 10

Have you have wondered if the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is really like what you see on popular television shows? Are you curious about what takes to be an FBI agent and what case work is really like? If you are a high school junior in the area served by the Sacramento FBI has perfect opportunity that is custom made for you: the Fall 2014 FBI Teen Academy.

Students selected for the FBI Teen Academy spend an interactive day at the FBI’s Sacramento Division headquarters, learning what it takes to be a member of the FBI team, what federal violations the FBI investigates, and how to avoid behaviors that can negatively impact their futures. The diverse class gets to know each other and the FBI team as they engage in a number of classroom and hands on activities including collecting “evidence” from a simulated crime scene, operating a remote-controlled robot, learning what it takes to become an agent, seeing how some online communication can be detrimental, and more. Students will leave Sacramento Division headquarters more aware of the challenges that face their communities and better prepared to mentor and provide a positive influence to their peers after attending the class. 

All high school juniors currently residing and attending school within the 34 California counties served by the FBI’s Sacramento Division are eligible to apply to the on-day class that will be held on Friday, November 21, 2014 at division headquarters. Students from as far away as Modoc County and Kern County attended the single-day class in Sacramento during the 2013/2014 academic year. Public, private, charter, and home school students are welcome to apply. 

Application packages are currently available online and must be completed and received at Sacramento FBI headquarters by post or hand delivery by the October 10, 2014 deadline. All completed application packages include an essay detailing why the student wants to attend the class and what benefit the experience may have for the student’s community and school. A panel will evaluate all materials received by the deadline to select a limited number of students for the Fall 2014 Sacramento FBI Teen Academy class. 

The Sacramento FBI Teen Academy is offered at no cost to students and their families.  The Sacramento FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association and its members generously sponsor lunch and snacks for all students in attendance and all classroom materials are provided.  If a student is selected, his or her family is responsible for transportation to and from class and any other personal arrangements that may be necessary for attendance.

Teatro Espejo invites River City High School students to a theater production currently in performance in midtown Sacramento. Playwright Ruben Amavizca-Murua's "Enslaved," captures the truth behind a horrible threat against humanity through the character of a young teenager, Andrea, who is forced into prostitution in the United States while her mother engages into a relentless pursuit to find her daughter and bring her home. Please see attached flyer.

 

Teatro Espejo hopes the youth experience this production (especially females) so they become aware of some of the egregious tactics criminals use to coerce girls (and sometimes boys) into forced prostitution/slavery. 

 

The play will be presented on August 15- September 7, Friday-Sat, 8:00, Sunday, 2:00. There will not be a Saturday, August 30 performance. There will be a special Sunday Performance on August 31, at 7:00 pm. Ticket prices are $15.00 for general, 13.00 for seniors, veterans, children, and Teatro Espejo members. It will show at the California Stage located at midtown on 25th and R Streets. For group rates or questions, email us at teatroespejo@hotmail.com. Minor adult situations and profanity.

            On May 14th, Ms. Carlisle, River City High School Government and Economics teacher, invited West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon, Human Resources Manager of Capitol Area Development, Jill Azuvedo, and General Manager at Wicked West Pizza, Michelle Van De Heetkamp to come and give volunteer students mock interviews, as if they were applying for a job.

 Ms. Azuvedo explained, “I think it is important high school students learn [how to be interviewed] because it isn’t taught in schools.”

            “This is very generous of them to do this.” Ms. Carlisle commented to her class, prior to the interviews.

            Students who volunteered before the event were called up and were interviewed for an unspecified job in front of the class by the panel of guests. Some qualities that the panel was looking for in each interview were work ethic, charisma, honesty and skill.

            “Keep in mind,” said Heetkamp, “We are going to be hiring someone we’ll be spending every day with. Think of yourself, do we really want to spend every day with you?”

            After each interview, the panel would give specific feedback according to each student’s particular scenario. Some of their critiques included being engaging with the panel, being concise and specific in their answers, being confident and prepared, conservative in dress, respectful, and most of all to accentuate their best qualities and give solutions to weaknesses.

            Ms. Carlisle felt it was important to put on this event, because of the difficulties teens have in establishing themselves in the workplace.

            Ms. Carlisle explained “Youth unemployment is very high. This concerns me because one of the ways young people mature is to work.  Also, job experience as a teen helps to secure an even better job as a young adult.”

Operated by students elected to various offices, Boys State activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, choruses and recreational programs. Legion posts select high-school juniors to attend the program. In most cases, individual expenses are paid by a sponsoring post, a local business or another community-based organization.

131217 FYI holiday.jpg

Santa came early to RCHS's Foster Youth Incorporated!

A few months ago, a "mysterious benefactor" (who heard about Foster Youth Incorporated, RCHS ("FYI") through Yolo County's Office of Education) offered to bring Christmas gifts for our students. We sent a list of first names, and expected stockings full of candy--everyone likes bringing smiles to kids around the holidays!

This afternoon, what we got instead was 2 vans full of presents. There were beautiful gift bags for each of our 40+ "FYI" members, including foster students, homeless students, and unaccompanied youth that we have identified and work with at RCHS. Each bag contained close to $250 of awesome gifts/gift cards perfect for teenagers... The people delivering the gifts called themselves delivery elves--they don't know who the benefactor is, either!

We also received a box full of adorable hand-knitted hats and scarves (complete with animal-puppet mittens attached!) from a donor who didn't have success selling them at a recent craft fair, so she donated ALL of them instead. And since she was already donating, she also knit a bunch of stockings and filled them for our students to give out to their younger siblings as gifts.

We are so excited, so grateful, and literally in awe. This made the entire holiday season for me, other staff members, and all of our students, who started shrieking and giggling and hugging and crying.

Thank you to everyone doing good things this holiday season! You are the best. And thank YOU for reading this and supporting FYI.

If you want to learn more about our program, please visit our website.
http://rivercity.wusd.k12.ca.us/fosteryouth

Easy ways to get involve include "liking" our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/rchsfyi, letting Ms. Buss know if you know of any students at RCHS who might qualify for our program, and considering our current "Sponsor a Senior" campaign (started before we knew about this incredible gifts, and still very relevant!). A full or partial sponsorship in the name of a friend or family member makes a great holiday gift for those of you who haven't started shopping...

So, so happy today.

Many students are currently reading "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald.   

 

FUN FACTOID - The Oxford English Dictionary credits Mr. Fitzgerald with being the first to use the words 't-shirt' and 'daiquiri.'  Kind of cool, huh?

 

Oh, and speaking of cool, he is the first writer to use the word 'wicked' to describe something as good...or cool.

 

You can learn more about Mr. Fitzgerald in this blog:

Sustainability Field Trip to visit City Hall, Sac City College satellite, & Bridge district.

On November 15 the twelfth grade Math, Science and Engineering Academy students and the AP Environmental Studies students will be actively engaged in an exciting field trip to better understand sustainability through eco-friendly building and construction practices. In addition to exploring aspects of sustainability, students will be participating in a local farm-to-fork dining experience in the upcoming West Sacramento Bridge District.

The trip originates at River City High School and includes stops at City Hall, West Sacramento’s Sacramento City College satellite campus, and the current development adjacent to Raley Field, the Bridge District. Along the way students will be hearing about sustainable, eco-friendly building design from West Sacramento construction teams as well as project managers and those responsible for fostering a sustainable vision for the city. While at the Bridge District, the Wicked ‘Wich food truck, affiliated with the popular Broderick Roadhouse restaurant, will serve a farm-to-fork lunch to students and chaperones. During lunch, a local restaurateur will talk about the benefits of eating locally.

The funding and support for the field trip are being provided by Mayor Christopher Cabaldon, Randy Goodwin and the staff with West Sacramento Community Development, Chris Jarosz and Rachel Sprinkle-Strong of the Broderick Roadhouse restaurant and the Wicked ‘Wich food truck, Deborah Bruns and the Yolo County Office of Education, as well as JoAnn Moffet and Victoria Hatch and the staff at Cunningham Engineering.

For the majority of summer, practices will start at 1pm in the weight room doing Crossfit.  After that we will either practice on the field or find an indoor space on campus to practice until 4pm.  In order to practice over the summer you must:

1.  Be currently enrolled

2.  Must have a current physical and emergency card

3.  Bring $5 for facility usage

4.  Sign a player contract

We expect you to make every practice.  We will be going through a progression of drills to help establish the form we want to play during the year.  If you miss practices, you will not understand your roll or what the team is trying to accomplish.  We understand that many students have jobs, other teams they play for, and vacations to go on.  Please let the coaches know of these events way ahead of time so that we can plan accordingly.  Do not tell a friend to tell coach that you will not be there.  You are only excused if you contact coach at least 24 hours before practice and coach ok’s your absence.  If you have any questions call coach Hatfield at (916) 202-7034 (If you are texting, identify who you are or I will not respond)

As part of the nation-wide Vans Custom Culture Contest, students in Mr. Schumacher’s 2D Design classes took on the task of creating their own creative and unique designs for a pair of Vans.  Each student designer created their own interpretation of the ultimate pair of Vans.  The top four designs were then selected and given the task of producing their ideas on an actual pair of Vans.

The winning designs were produced by Samantha Matthews, Armando Vasquez, Kristina Telelyuev and Sarah Edd.  Although these designs were not selected to move forward in the national competition, I think we can all agree that these River City artists did an excellent job and represented RCHS in true Raider style.  Congratulations to all who participated!

River City High School is proud to be the flagship high school of Washington Unified School District. Our events are attended by students and adults representing every school within the district as well as a variety of community partners from West Sacramento and Yolo County. We strive to provide options for the region that are fun, entertaining and safe for all that attend.

In order to maintain the high standard of safety that we have set for ourselves and our community partners expect, we’d like to announce the following changes to how sporting events are managed at River City High School:

  1. All non-River City students must be accompanied by an adult and no more than 6 children per adult

  2. All attendees must stay in the stands for the duration of the game being played with the exception of going to the restroom or snack bar.

  3. Loitering around the restrooms and snack bar is not permitted.

  4. Loitering on the walkway to the stands is not permitted

  5. There are no “ins and outs” privileges.

  6. No one will be admitted after the 3rdquarter of the game.

We appreciate your attention to this as it will continue to create an atmosphere of excellence and safety for River City High School and WUSD.
