May is Mental Health Month. The intent of this observance is to bring awareness to growing mental health needs within our culture, and to fight the stigma associated with mental illness.  The Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” has brought national and local attention to issues related to mental illness and suicide.  Please take an opportunity to discuss the attached talking points with your children.  We need to work together to spread the message to our children that help is always available.

KCRA 3 news reportCBS 13 news story
Dear Parents,

We can never be too careful when it comes to protecting our children.  A dangerous “game” surfaced on social media a while back, particularly with students in other countries. The game is being talked about by student in our schools. 

The “Blue Whale Challenge” app involves the enticement of students into risky behavior that could result in the final challenge of taking one’s life. While we do not know of any VUSD students who are playing it, we want to make sure that you are aware of it.

Evidently, it has been removed from the app store.  We are appreciative of members of the community who brought this to our attention; our children benefit when we work together to protect them.

Sincerely, 

Kim Forrest

BCMHS is the only high school in the area that offers the NSE to students.  “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examination is very prestigious,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 157,000 students nationwide participating in 2017.”

Papa Roach
Papa Roach -- a world-touring, Grammy-nominated, triple-platinum rock band with members who originally hail from Vacaville – will break away from their album promotion schedule on May 3 to come home to deliver a message to Solano County children: Be fearless, dream big, aim high to develop your full creative potential.

Members of the band will return to their hometown for a special dedication ceremony at Imagine That!  – Vacaville’s newly opened hands-on learning Exploratorium for children of all ages and abilities. Exhibits at the center encourage children to be free to imagine, create, and welcome sciences and art into their lives.

The highlight of this special ceremony will be Vacaville Mayor Len Augustine proclaiming May 3 as Papa Roach Day in Vacaville. In honor of Papa Roach’s generous support of our community, organizers have created a special exhibit at the center that celebrates their musical success. One portion of the exhibit invites youngsters to play out their rock dreams and musical talents.

Papa Roach formed in 1993, with Jacoby Shaddix, a student at Vacaville High, and Jerry Horton of Vanden High, since that time and with Members Tobin Esperance and Tony Palermo, Papa Roach have achieved critical and commercial acclaim selling over 25 million albums worldwide. 

The dedication will take place from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3 at Vacaville’s Imagine That!, 848-B Alamo Drive.

For local information, contact Lauren Runow of Imagine That!, (707) 474-5317.

Superintendent Jane Shamieh and Board of Education President Shelley Dally presented Board member Nolan Sullivan with an award of appreciation for his years of service on the VUSD Board. Mr. Sullivan has a long history of serving students, not only as a Board member, but as the Chief Organizer for Measure A, the President of the Vacaville Public Education Foundation (VPEF) the Chair of Loop the Lagoon charity run and more. Nolan did not run for re-election so that he could spend more time with his young family, but we expect he will continue to have a strong and positive presence in our community. Thank you Nolan for all that you do.

Student Ryan Mayeux did a fundraiser for school supplies for VUSD kids in need. He stood in front of Walmart, collected donations from community members and his Boy Scout troop 897. He dropped off over 800 school supply items to VUSD this week! Heartfelt thanks Ryan. Your efforts mean so much to so many.

We have a new program called BCOL -- Buckingham Charter Online Learning. It's split into two branches, one of which may be a great fit for your family. One branch is BCOL-H, with the H standing for Hybrid. This is essentially what used to be called BCAL -- students may take three courses on site (depending on availability) and the rest online. The other branch is BCOL-D, with the D standing for Distance. This is a completely online independent study program, but is run by Buckingham teachers who will be regularly communicating via Skype, FaceTime, or in person with the students and parents. 

 

The goal is to provide a high-quality education with more flexibility for students and families that need it. The rigor and expectations are just as high, and the teacher support is just as readily available. Both programs use Edgenuity's online learning system, which utilizes video lectures, quizzes, assignments, papers, and tests to address a variety of learning styles. There will also be teacher-led additions, including Khan Academy practice, math support meetings, and science labs. Math support and science labs provide hands-on opportunities for students to put their learning into practice or get extra in-person help on difficult topics from highly-qualified teachers. 

 

There are some huge perks of enrolling in one of these two programs. The first is that your child will be considered a Buckingham student, which means that he or she will be able to attend school events and try out for sports. Secondly, he or she will have the option to come onto campus part-time or full-time at the semester if there is room. Students enrolling in BCOL will sign a Master Agreement which commits them to the program semester by semester; after that they can continue with Distance, Hybrid, or on-site (again, if there's room). 

 

There will be an informational meeting on Friday, May 27th at 3:00pm to get more information, have any questions answered, and enroll if interested. It will take place in Room 4 at the school; this is on the 188 (main office) side. Please let us know if you are able to come to the meeting by RSVPing here. This is a great new program that will open doors for even more students, which is a very exciting prospect. We hope to see you at the meeting!

Social Media class for parents: Wednesday, June 1st, 6:30 PM at Educational Services Center, 401 Nut Tree Rd. Vacaville in the Board room.

VUSD and the Vacaville Police Department are hosting a free class to help parents learn about current trends, aps, devices capabilities and dangers that face our kids. 

RECENT  NEWS: A New York state man was arrested by federal authorities following an investigation by Vacaville police that included a then 12-year-old victim in Vacaville. Homeland Security agents arrested Robert J. Garneau, 21, of Warwick, New York on charges of online child exploitation.

As social media trends change day to day and technology advancements do the same, keeping up with devices and social media can be challenging for parents. Even parents who are up on social media might be surprised about what aps are now available and what kids can be exposed to.
