WESTWARD HO!

Fifth grade students from Mr. Gathing, Mr. Phung, and Mr. Schmiegel's classrooms participated in Conestoga Wagon races, vicariously traveling across the Overland Trails of the Old West in the hope of creating better lives for themselves.  The activity integrated many classroom core subjects and motivated all students to do their best.  Most student-made wagons reached their intended destinations west and for those few students that did not make it to the trails' end, they faced poverty, illness, and starvation with both courage and grace.

With the passage of Senate Bill 172, many students who were unable to pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) can now receive their diploma.

 

As far back as 2006, when the exit exam became a requirement for graduation, students who didn’t pass the CAHSEE were not able to graduate and receive their diploma. SB 172 changes that. Any former student who completed grade twelve in the 2003-04 school year—or a subsequent school year—and met all applicable graduation requirements other than the passage of the CAHSEE may contact their high school office and fill out a request for records review.

 

Once the graduation status is verified, the records office will mail out the diploma to the individual’s current mailing address.

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, Twin Rivers School District announces a FREE Summer Nutrition Program for children 18 years of age and under.

 

“This program helps fills a void,” says Nutrition Services Director Jill Van Dyke. “We are helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children during the summer months when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable.”

 

The Summer Food Service Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the California Department of Education. Twin Rivers is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

2015-16 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant

For the third year,  our students will receive fresh fruit and vegetable four times a week.  The purpose of the grant is threefold: to create a healthier school environment; to expand the variety of fruits and vegetables that children experience and consume; and to make a difference in children's diets that will impact their present and future health.  The fresh fruit and vegetables will be consumed either before or after lunch. If you have any questions about the grant, please talk to Mr. Macias.
