Happy October, Wildcats!

Happy October, Wildcats!

We had a terrific September! I saw many of you at the District College and Career Fair at Los Altos. Despite being a rather warm day, the event was well attended. Assemblyman, Ian Calderon, awarded five $1000 scholarships for winners of the essay contest. Four of the five scholarships went to Wildcats. Congratulations to our scholarship winners Michelle Kakumasu, Sarah Chun, Vannida Kol, and Katie Kyan!

I am proud to have had the following students represent Wilson High School at this year’s Valle Vista Symposium Serena Lee, Natalie Wu, Kelly Moc, Isabel Gonzalez, Mia Ayala, Johnathan Pfeiffer, Kyle Tang, Tyler Kam, Nick Barrera, and David Gonzalez. Thank you to these student athletes for their leadership and representation of Wilson High School, both on and off the field.

October is another busy month on the Wildcat Campus. October 3 rd will be our first lunch time ROAR Rally. At the rally, certificates will be awarded to students earning honor roll recognition (GPA of 3.0 or higher) for the last 6 weeks of the 2017-18 school year and the first 6 weeks of this current school year. I am happy to report that we hit record numbers for honors in the last 6 weeks of the 2017-18 school year. 892 students will earn this recognition which is an increase of 23 students from the February marking period. Let’s keep that number rising! We will also be conducting our first ROAR Raffle drawing. Students earn tickets throughout ROAR class and during the school day for exemplifying our values of Respect, Ownership, Adaptability, and Resilience. Good luck Wildcats!

FROM THE ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT

 
Welcome to another exciting year for Wilson athletics. September was a great month for the Wildcats

Welcome to another exciting year for Wilson athletics. September was a great month for the Wildcats that brings stability and toughness to our programs. Wilson has some new faces running our programs. New head coach Artem Gevorkyan is now in charge of our Aquatics programs (Boys and Girls Water Polo and Swim). We are very lucky to have hired someone with his experience, boasting 7 years of collegiate experience at LA Trade Tech. Losing over 10 seniors last year makes taking over very tough on the new coach. We do have a young team with multiple freshman on varsity. That being said, his vision for our programs is clear and we look forward to him building our Aquatics program back into a powerhouse.

Coach Carly Lee was hired for our volleyball program. She comes to us from the Norwalk School District. She has her Masters in human development and will be receiving her doctorate in Psychology. She has already started to turn our girls volleyball team around not only physically with her practices, but also mentally in

our young ladies approach to the game. We also were able to hire a new Women’s basketball coach Antwine Adkins. Coach Adkins was an assistant coach for the Woman’s team at Whittier College where he ran many of the outreach programs for high school players. Our fall season workouts have been tough but have made a big difference for our young ladies.

Our Fall sports are off to a good start. Football beat Gladstone and ruined Montclair’s homecoming by beating them

on the road.

Girls tennis is 10-4. They came in 2nd place in the prestigious “First Serve” tournament and are

currently undefeated in Valle Vista League play. Earlier this month Cross Country team ran for the first time in an invitational at the Rose Bowl. Our runners were exceptional. There were over 60 schools and we had 6 of our athletes place high enough to earn medals. Geo Gudiel placed 4th out of 200 and Izzy Carranza placed 5th out of 200 runners in their races. Girls golf is doing well sweeping Los Altos this year. We have a very strong team. Robert

Chavez, our new woman’s coach, is taking our girls to Long Beach Bruins Invitational October 1st. Coach Chavez recently graduated from Boulder University and where he played golf collegiately.

October will be the last month for our fall sports. Homecoming festivities will be October 12th as our football team takes on the Baldwin Park Braves. This month will be filled with league games and multiple senior nights. Please come out and support our Wildcats as they look earn bids into the CIF playoffs.

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

   
Greetings From Guidance – Our annual District College and Career Fair was a GREAT success. Thank

Greetings From Guidance Our annual District College and Career Fair was a GREAT success. Thank you for all that could attend this event which was held at Los Altos High School earlier this month.

 

Counselors are busy with Senior Credit Checks. Counselors will meet with each of their senior students for a one-to-one session to review their progress toward graduation and assist with post-secondary planning such as reviewing college admission requirements, college application info, upcoming college admission testing and resources for both college and career planning.

We have also had several colleges come to Wilson to provide information about their campuses to interested seniors. There are many colleges that are eager for our Wilson seniors to apply as they have all the attributes that these colleges are

seeking to have as college freshmen.

 

We have heard from Harvey Mudd College, Pepperdine university, UCLA, UC Merced, to name a few. We will have Cal Poly Pomona, USC, UC Riverside, University of La Verne and a few others scheduled for the months of October and November.

In October, the Guidance Department will focus on students that need a bit more support as the 6 week grades will have posted. Our efforts are to let struggling students know that we are committed to their academic success and are prepared to help them with their readiness for college and 21st century careers.

Hello everyone. My name is Justin Ro and I am your new STEM coordinator. We had a fantastic 2017-2018 season, our Science Olympiad team finish 4rd overall in state, our Robotics team competed in the world championship in Houston, our Science fair team finished 2nd in the LA regional, while our design challenge team finish 1st in LA regional in back to back years. Our CyberPatriot team placed in the top 0.5% in the nation. While our competitive computer science team, CODE participated in the Cal poly Pomona code competition and finished 6th overall. In addition, our CODE team was able to win 1st place overall in the 39th congressional district’s APP challenge and they were able to travel to Washington DC to display their APP. We are continuing our momentum in 2018- 2019 season. Our Robotics team

 

attended their kickoff event on September 8th and discover this year’s challenge,

“Rover Ruckus”. In addition, we have over 30 members participating in Science Olympiad and are meeting every Tuesday and Thursday afterschool. Our CODE team is also off to a great start developing their APPs for the 2018 APP Challenge. We have 4 teams developing APPs that deal with topics such as coping with social anxiety, reducing waste, or simplifying seating arrangements. This year we are offering 5 engineering classes, 9 biomedical science classes and 3 computer science classes. I believe that our success is made possible because of our dedicated teachers collaborating alongside supportive parents. I look forward to seeing our new school year bring success to all our

students.
