On Saturday, February 3, 2018 at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, we plan to host 200+ attendees through a series of workshops, panels and activities and hear from local health and policy leaders.

This is a FREE event, with breakfast and lunch provided! Registration is required and can be completed online in advance of the conference. Below is a brief background.

SHEC was created in 2015 by a group of UC Davis Medical Students who found the lack of educational resources available in Stockton for high school and junior college students alarming, and understood the need for change. The conference aims to empower, motivate, and provide information about health professions to students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Many of these bright minds come from under served communities where their families envision their success, but may not know how to help.  We want to change that and provide much needed resources and the network to succeed. This conference will encourage conversations about: long-term goals, college admissions, financial aid, health profession careers, educational achievement, community service, research, and how together, we can make a difference.

This is Hillary Harrell, principal, with important announcements for our students and parents about school rules and procedures. Last year we established “The Bruin Way,” which represents a set of expectations we have for our students and staff. My message today focuses on the “Be Prepared” element of the Bruin Way. It is our expectation that all students arrive to school and class on time. Starting tomorrow, August 17th, students will only be permitted to have one tardy. Each subsequent tardy will result in a detention after school. Detentions will be held after school from 2:30 to 3:15 every Tuesday and Thursday starting next week. If students receive a detention, he or she will be instructed where to report and we expect students to bring homework to complete during detention. Additionally, if students are tardy to class, they are expected to quietly and respectfully get a tardy pass to class and return to class in a timely manner. Students may receive a disciplinary consequence for failing to adhere to these expectations. I have two more reminders as I close out this message. One, once the 2:20 bells rings, students are expected to leave campus or join a supervised activity. Two, Back to School Night will be next Tuesday, August 22nd. We will be sending home more information soon. Have a great rest of your day!

Bear Creek has approximately 450 seniors and we really want ALL of them to fill out the FAFSA for many reasons whether they think they qualify or not and whether or not they know what they are doing after high school at this time.  There are Pell grant eligible students every year who qualify and do not apply and lose out on money.  It allows them to apply for federal loans if need be vs. personal bank loans with a much higher interest rate.  If they want to apply for certain programs such as (EOPS and college work study), or for merit based scholarships they had to have at least filled out the FAFSA and submitted it.  It applies not only to all 4 year schools, but also community college and vocational college.

 

We are asking you to please remind them of the importance of getting the FAFSA filled out in a timely fashion. No FAFSA, NO MONEY!!! 

 

We appreciate any assistance you can provide.  If they have questions, concerns or just need help, please send them our way.

 

The counselors will be holding a financial aid workshop on Tuesday, February 21 at 2:30 in the Presentation Room. Seniors can sign up for this workshop in the counseling office. MARCH 2 IS THE LAST DAY TO APPLY FOR FAFSA for the next school year.

Sacramento FBI Teen Academy Applications Available Online
Class Offers Information, Experiences, and More to High School Juniors

SACRAMENTO, CA –The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Sacramento field office is accepting applications for the Spring 2017 FBI Teen Academy. This unique opportunity is open to all high school juniors attending any school—public, private, and home school—in the 34-counties the field office serves. The application package is available for download now.

Students selected to participate will spend an entire day at FBI Sacramento field office headquarters in Roseville on Friday, April 7, 2017. Applying and attending the FBI Teen Academy program is free; however, families are responsible for travel to and from the class.

The FBI Teen Academy is a unique opportunity for any student—regardless of career interest—who is curious about the FBI, what the FBI investigates, and how it serves the community. FBI Teen Academy participants engage in activities and discussions about what the FBI does and current topics relative to FBI investigations. Activities may include discussions about cyber safety, terrorism, active shooter situations, and color of law and civil rights investigations; participation in simulated evidence response team and bomb techs scenarios; and frank conversations about online communication and staying safe in an always-connected world.

After completing the class, participants better understand the FBI’s role in their communities, grasp the complexity of FBI investigations, can make lifestyle choices to be safer in their day-to-day lives, and what FBI career paths are available. FBI Teen Academy students often remain connected with the field office to facilitate presentations, mentorship, and more.

About the Sacramento FBI Teen Academy

Each spring and fall, the FBI Sacramento field office hosts the FBI Teen Academy for 20-36 students who spend a day in FBI facilities to learn about the agency, what it investigates, how it serves its community, how students can make wise lifestyle choices to be safer in their day-to-day lives, and what FBI career paths are available. The opportunity is available to any high school junior in the region the field office serves and can create a lasting connection between the students and the FBI. More than 250 students have attended the FBI Teen Academy in Sacramento to date.

 What is VISION?

VISION is a 4-day, 3-night, all-expense-paid mentorship program that takes place annually in April where high school students from across California are invited to spend a weekend in Berkeley to explore, discuss, and learn about issues that affect Vietnamese and Vietnamese American communities as well as overarching challenges encountered across all cultures. This year, VISION 2017 will take place from Thursday, April 6th, 2017 to Sunday, April 9th, 2017.

What is VISION’s objective?

Through workshops and activities, our program aims to inspire students to become leaders and make a difference in their communities by developing leadership skills to tackle problems the students themselves or their communities are facing. We started this program with the intent to provide students with an educational environment in which they can acquire knowledge of Vietnamese community, heritage, and culture. Now in its sixth year, the program has expanded to not only focus on enriching our students with knowledge of Vietnamese history and culture but also encourage discourse regarding the interplay of multiple cultures and its significance in regards to contemporary issues.

 

What can students expect from VISION?

Housing and food will be provided for all four days, as well as transportation to and from the students' high schools and Berkeley. Students will have the opportunity to stay with college students. Selected students can expect to network and collaborate with other high school students as well as college students who volunteer as mentors from all over California through interactive activities, workshops, and discussions. The students can expect to learn about different topics and issues that they might or might not have been exposed to before. This program will not only educate and inspire our mentees but also allow them the opportunity to forge new, lasting friendships in a fun and safe environment.

 

In order to be a part of our program, all students who are interested will need to submit an application (linked at the end of this email). The criteria for applications will be based on the applicant's quality of essays, leadership potential, and enthusiasm for learning. Applicants from ALL backgrounds and ethnicities are encouraged to apply; the application is also open to ALL grade levels in high school, regardless of GPA.

 

What is this year’s theme?

Each year, VISION takes on a different theme upon which we build our program. The theme for VISION 2017 is Tenacity. By definition, tenacity refers to the act of gripping onto something firmly. Moving past its literal meaning, however, the word also represents the strength to move forward and accomplish future goals given one’s ties to the past and present. Throughout the weekend, we will hold workshops that explore how tenacity can be used to symbolize not only perseverance, but also acknowledgment of how our rich, cultural roots play a role in the decisions we make. We hope to instill the same kind of resilience in our participants by encouraging our mentees to uncover their unique strengths and weaknesses, forge connections between their cultural past and future, and foster lasting bonds that will extend beyond this program.

 

Ultimately, our goal for VISION is to empower our mentees to become culturally educated leaders who will initiate change within their communities with the intention of bettering the future.

 

Here is the link to our online application, which is due on Sunday February 24th, 2017:  http://tinyurl.com/VISION2017mentee
