       May, 2010

Dear Parents:
          This is the time of year we look forward to our seniors’ graduation, celebrate our students’ many achievements, and
plan for summer school and the opening of the 2010-2011 school year. I have good news about the Patrick Henry High
School budget for next year. Instead of worrying about how we will pay for all the needed student supports, next year
Patrick Henry High will qualify for federal Title I funds. This will bring an additional $178,000 to fund a number of
educational services for our students, including our additional counselor, computer lab tech, and support classes in English
and math for the High School Exit Exam. We will have enough funding to help support our band and all the supplies and
books our classes and departments need.

          We are currently conducting our state testing of all grade 9-11 students, and I want to thank all of you for supporting
our students’ efforts and achievement on these exams. We need to show every student is improving his/her performance on
them. I am recognizing in this newsletter all the students in grade 11 in spring 2009 who earned an Advanced Level on at
least one of the California Standards Tests. I also want to give a big thank you to Joe Ogilvie for his help in organizing all
the tests and to our two volunteers who have donated a lot of time to help: Cathy Jaffe and Lisa Cantor. Your help is greatly
appreciated.

          Summer School will take place as normal for D and F grade make up for grade 9-12 students. Summer School
dates are June 28-August 6, and class will be held 7:30-11:40 a.m. daily. There will be no transportation, except for
identified special education students. Please contact Terry Walsh to make sure your child is enrolled for credit make up.

          Incoming Grade 9 Summer Experience classes will be offered to new Patrick Henry High students to provide
project-based activities to help prepare them for their high school education. This is a fun, hands-on, activity class
tentatively taking place from June 28 – July 16. Incoming freshmen are encouraged to sign up with Mrs. Schulze.

         I want to thank our seniors for their continued excellent citizenship. Please do not encourage and “ditch days”
because they are unexcused and they cost our district valuable funds for every absence. Please encourage our seniors to
celebrate at their senior activities and graduation on June 18.

         For your 2010-2011 school year calendar, please post these important registration and Link Crew dates:

New Student Enrollment              August 24, 26, 31 and September 1

Queridos padres de familia:
Éste es el momento del año en que esperamos con gusto la graduación de nuestros estudiantes seniors. Celebremos los muchos
logros de nuestros estudiantes y hagamos planes para la Escuela de Verano y para el siguiente año escolar 2010-2011. Tengo
buenas noticias sobre el presupuesto de la Preparatoria Patrick Henry para el año que viene. No tendremos que preocuparnos sobre
cómo pagar todos los apoyos que necesitamos para nuestros estudiantes, pues Patrick Henry ha calificado para recibir fondos
federales de Title I el año entrante. Esto nos traerá $178 000 adicionales para financiar varios servicios educativos para nuestros
estudiantes, incluso para nuestro consejero adicional, el técnico del laboratorio de computación, y clases de apoyo de inglés y
matemáticas para el Examen de Egreso de las Preparatorias de California. Tendremos suficientes fondos para apoyar a nuestra
banda y para todos los materiales y libros que nuestras clases y departamentos necesitan.

Actualmente, estamos llevando a cabo nuestra prueba estatal para todos los estudiantes de los grados 9 a 11, y quiero agradecer a
todos su apoyo a los esfuerzos y logros de nuestros estudiantes en estos exámenes. Necesitamos mostrar que cada estudiante está
mejorando su desempeño en las pruebas. Quiero dar un reconocimiento en esta carta a todos los estudiantes del 11º grado que
obtuvieron en la primavera de 2009 un Nivel de Avanzado en al menos una de las Pruebas de Criterios de California. Quiero
también agradecer a Joe Ogilvie por su ayuda en organizar todos los exámenes y a nuestros dos voluntarios, Cathy Jaffe y Lisa
Cantor, que donaron mucho de su tiempo para esto. Agradecemos mucho su ayuda.

La Escuela de Verano será como siempre para que los estudiantes de los grados 9 a 11 que tienen calificaciones de D y F puedan
ponerse al corriente y recuperar sus créditos. Las fechas de la Escuela de Verano serán del 28 de junio al 6 de agosto y las clases
serán diariamente de 7:30 a 11:40 de la mañana. No habrá servicio de transporte excepto para los estudiantes identificados de
educación especial. Por favor, póngase en contacto con Terry Walsh para asegurarse que su hijo/a esté inscrito para recuperar sus
créditos.

Las clases de Experiencia de Verano se ofrecerán a los nuevos estudiantes de Patrick Henry que ingresarán al 9º grado para
proporcionar actividades con base en proyectos que los ayudarán a prepararse para su educación en la preparatoria. Esta es una
clase divertida de actividades prácticas que se impartirá en junio y se invita a todos los nuevos estudiantes a que se inscriban con
Mrs. Shulze.

Quiero agradecer a nuestros seniors por su continua conducta excelente. Por favor no se ausenten de las clases o de la escuela, ni
alienten a otros a que lo hagan por que esas faltas serán injustificadas y cada ausencia le cuesta valiosos fondos a nuestro distrito.
Por favor inviten a todos los seniors a participar en las actividades de celebración de los seniors y en la graduación del 18 de junio.

Para el calendario del año escolar de 2010-2011, por favor anoten estas fechas importantes de inscripciones y del programa Link
Crew (equipo de enlace):
Inscripción de nuevos estudiantes: agosto 24, 26, 31 y septiembre 1º
Inscripción del 9º grado:            agosto 25, 26
Inscripción del 10º grado:           agosto 27
Inscripción del 11º grado:           agosto 30

Finalmente, quiero reconocer los extraordinarios logros de algunos de nuestros estudiantes. ¡Son toda una fuente de inspiración!
Los estudiantes que darán el discurso de partida (Valedictorian) y el de saludo (Salutatorian) a los graduados del 2010: Matt
Abrams y Anna Kornfeld Simpson.
A la finalista para ser Becaria Presidencial: Anna Kornfeld Simpson.

                  the Counseling office; we truly appreciate all of your help!

                              Marion Spence, Lisa Cantor
                                    THANK YOU!
       Patriot Newsletter                                                            Page 5
        HEALTH NEWS: Patrick Henry has a Student Assistance Program, which is available to
all students. The program provides support groups, which are facilitated by trained staff. Groups
are designed to help students improve communication skills, self-concept, and function more
effectively in society by recognizing their responsibilities. Some of the groups have a focus: Grief
Group, Self Esteem, Family Change, Social Skills, and Drug and Alcohol information groups.
Others are more general and deal with issues that are important to High School Students:
relationships with friends, families, teachers, conflict resolution, etc. Students may be referred to
this program by parents, teachers or they may refer themselves. Groups are currently in progress
and will continue until the end of May. Questions can be directed to the Nurse, Susan Efting 619-
286-0452.

        WILDERNESS FIRST AID: Fifteen students and two staff members completed this
program and will receive certification. The program is American Red Cross Wilderness First Aid.
This class is intended to prepare the individual for a situation where advanced medical help will be
delayed for several hours. Wilderness First Aid is designed to prepare the First Aid Giver the tools
necessary to evaluate an emergency situation, give immediate care, check for resources and decide
how to evacuate, if necessary, to provide more advanced medical care in the case that help is
delayed. Each student received a medical back pack with some supplies as well as a list of
suggested items to be placed in the bag. The 15 students that participated are in the Bio Medical
Pathways Program. Stephanie Baron (teacher), Suzi Stone (American First Aid Instructor) and the
Nurse will be facilitating the training.

        STUDENT TO STUDENT: The following students have been selected to participate in the

saw the program in February. We will continue to do presentations throughout the month of May.
This will be the twelfth year the program has been available.

assist other students with difficulties they may be having in school, present health programs in the
classroom and serve as mediators to help students resolve conflicts. Health Presentations for
second semester will include: Teen Relationship Violence in April and HIV in May.

        BLUE SLIPS – LEAVING CAMPUS EARLY
       Please notify the Nurse’s Office at least 24 hours in advance to request a medical blue slip,
        we prefer written notice.
       Patriot Newsletter                                                           Page 6
       Medical Blue slips must be picked up in the Nurse’s office the day of your appointment;
       they will not be delivered to the classroom. If the blue slip is not picked up, please be
       prepared to go to the classroom to get your student.
      If your student leaves school without a Blue Slip, he/she will be marked truant. Even if the
       parent has called, the student still needs to pick it up! Parents cannot excuse their student
       after he/she has left campus.
      If you are sick, call your parents from the Nurse’s Office; cell phones are not allowed in class
       nor are they to be used during instructional time or during passing period.
      Requests for Blue Slips will NOT be honored on the following days unless there is a
       verifiable medical appointment and that information is presented to the Nurse’s Office for
       verification.
                        Any testing days (Finals, AP, STAR Testing, etc.)
                        Fridays prior to Saturday Dances
                        Fridays or any day before holidays/vacations
      All personal, family emergencies or requests other than medical must have a
       parent/guardian come to the office to make the request with the Vice Principal.

       TAKING MEDICATION WHILE AT SCHOOL
      If you plan on taking a pain reliever i.e. Tylenol, Advil, please bring your own supply. We
       will keep it locked up in the Health Office with you name on it. We have a limited amount
       on hand for emergencies only. We will continue to notify you if your student should need
       Tylenol, Motrin or Ibuprofen at school.
      If you need to take a prescription medicine you will need to keep it in the Nurse’s Office.
       You cannot keep it in your backpack.
      If you will be taking prescription medicine on a daily basis, you will need to pick up a
       medication form and have your doctor fill it out. Medication must be in its original
       container, no zip-lock bags.
      Do not send your child to school if he/she has a fever (measured greater than 100 degrees
       with a thermometer) or is too ill to pay attention in class.

 Please remember attending school on a daily basis is important for your student’s success. Try to
                    schedule Dental and Medical appointments after school.
                       We really appreciate your help in following the guidelines.

        HEALTHY FAMILIES AND MED-CAL FOR FAMILIES
               Information regarding this program and other medical resources can be picked up
in the Nurse’s Office.

        EMERGENCY INFORMATION: Parents be sure your student’s emergency information is
updated. Health problems, which may affect your student’s school performance, should be
discussed with the nurse. Please be sure we have current home, work and emergency numbers.

       Thank you for your help.

                PATRICK HENRY HIGH EMPLOYER OUTREACH
PHHS students: Come visit our Employer Outreach Specialist, Mrs. Walden in Room #11 of the
Main Office. Her hours are 7:30 am – 3:45 pm. Looking for a part-time job, internship, job shadow,
ROP course, community service and/or volunteer opportunity, or help with career exploration or
resume? See Mrs. Walden or go to the PHHS website and click on “Departments” and then
“Employer Outreach Specialist”.

PHHS Career Exploration Fairs:
We had a Career Exploration and Resource Fair for Seniors in the PHHS Gymnasium on 4/28/10!
Over 50 exhibitors participated. Exhibitors were representatives from various companies who
were currently hiring and other resources including the Registrar of Voters, Money Management
International, the “When You Become 18” presentation by DLA Piper, as well as in-college programs
that assist students while they are students in college. Private, vocational schools were represented
as were several apprenticeship programs. We greatly appreciate the volunteer exhibitors who took
the time out to help inspire our students! All seniors attended.

Job Shadows:
Many students have been on job shadows already this year! A job shadow allows a student to see
what a career professional does on a day-to-day basis by shadowing for 2-6 hours while that
professional is performing his/her job duties. In that way, the student can get more of an
understanding of a career. Contact Mrs. Walden if you would like more information. We have had
several health-care related job shadows for students this year.

Internships:
We have a number of PHHS students working in paid or unpaid internships in the areas of graphic
arts, engineering, GIS, culinary arts, and healthcare. Applications for summer internship programs
have pretty much closed with the exception of the Reuben H. Fleet internships. I am working with
a limited number of students to try to set up unpaid internships for the summer.

Upcoming Events:
Career guest speakers in Healthcare Pathways, Teaching Academy,
Engineering Academy: now through June, 2010
PHHS Healthcare Pathways students tour UCSD Medical Center, 5/21/10
PHHS Healthcare Pathways students – Hip replacement surgery viewing – 5/14/10.

CSF News
The following seniors have earned Sealbearer status from the California Scholarship Federation.
To be Sealbearers, students must have earned membership in CSF for at least four semesters
since their sophomore year, including first semester in senior year. Membership requires that
students meet CSF’s strong academic standards (points are awarded only for A’s and B’s; D’s
and F’s disqualify a candidate) and perform community service. We are proud of our CSF

All students should plan to attend Registration on their designated dates above. Registration
is grade-level specific so students will not be able to switch to a different day. A packet of
information and forms will be mailed to your homes early in July. Newly enrolled students
should also attend Registration but may bypass the first three stations. Registration
involves submitting required district forms, verifying your residency, receiving your school
ID card, making desired purchases like an ASB sticker, a discounted ticket to the Welcome
Back Dance in September, yearbook, and PE clothes, receiving your draft class schedule for
the new school year and your textbooks. Also, this is the ideal time for returning students
to clear up any school debts to start the year off right! Patriot Camp is a fun and
informative orientation for all new students to Patrick Henry which includes a tour to
acquaint you with the campus so your first day of school is easier for you.

The purchase of an ASB Sticker, which is mandatory for all athletes who wish to
obtain a letter, provides discounts for student activities throughout the year. This
includes dances, selected sporting events, the purchase of a yearbook and entitles
the student to a free PHHS Student Planner. Student Planners, which are optional,
will be sold for $2 otherwise.

We welcome parent volunteers to help us at the above events. In fact, 25 parents are
needed each registration day. We provide snack bags for our volunteers and instructions @
each station. Also, students of parent volunteers may start their registration process @
7:45 am before the rest of their class begins as a token of our appreciation for your help.
 That's right - no standing in long lines! So please, if you are available to help any or all of
these days, contact our parent volunteer coordinator, Mary Vencill at
jacksonsmom.phhs@cox.net who will be able to work out a registration/volunteer schedule
with you.

 Questions about Registration? Contact Tracy Williams, Supervising Administrative Assistant
@ twilliams1@sandi.net. Students who do not attend Registration in August will meet in
the amphitheater the first day of school to register before going to their first period class.

Patrick Henry’s award winning NJROTC Patriot Battalion hosted this year’s San Diego Unified
School District JROTC Youth Physical Fitness Competition. Fondly known as the Cadet
Challenge, JROTC Units from twelve high schools within the District met to compete in the
Patrick Henry High School Naval JROTC’s Youth Physical Fitness Competition, or as it is more
fondly known: The schools in attendance included Lincoln, Crawford, San Diego, Serra, Hoover,
and Point Loma High Schools.

The competition tested cadets on their athleticism according to the standards of the Presidential
Fitness Exam. Each school fielded both a boys and girls team. All participants completed a series
of events that included: sit-ups, push-ups, shuttle runs, and the basketball throw. In order to
determine a winner the individual results of each cadet combined, thus producing individual
team and school scores.
 The Patrick Patriot Newsletter                                                          Page 12
Henry boy’s team, included Seniors Anthony Lacey, Jacob Halladay, and Troy Leak, Junior
Niko Rounds and Sophomore Michael Gould-Moberg. In the boy’s push-up event, the Patriots
placed third, racking up an amazing 307 team push-ups, while Morse High School took first with
357 push-ups. Sophomore Michael Gould-Moberg led the team with 69 push-ups and had this to
say: “"I really enjoyed how they (the events) were run; it really gave a better feeling of
accomplishment to me and the other competitors." The shining moment for the Patriot boy’s
was the 2000 meter relay run, their superb effort, manifested in a team relay time of 5.16,
securing them a first place in the event an as a result greatly contributed to their overall third
place finish.

The women’s team, made up by Junior Yesenia Hernandez and Sophomores Marisol
Villanueva, Kimberly Zaldivar, Adria Jones, and Michelle Aguilar. They too had an impressive
showing matching the boys in their overall 3rd Place finish.. Marisol Villanueva contributed a
team leading 52 push-ups to the team’s total 165. The Patriot girls finished third in sit-ups with a
team total of 351, outperforming their male counterparts. Kimberly Zaldivar led the team with 83
sit-ups. Michelle Aguilar’s stellar throw of 15 yard 23 inches allowed the Patriots to come away
second in the basketball throw event. In another shining moment, the Patriot girls took second
place in their 2000 meter relay race with a time of 6.41.

With each team taking a third place trophies the Patriot Battalion was also able to capture the
third place overall trophy for the entire competition. This success propels Patrick Henry within
reaching distance of a Stillwell competition victory. Awarded at the Brigade’s Annual Pass and
Review. The Stillwell Trophy acknowledges the successful culmination of the entire year’s
competitions. Placing for the award is determined by a series of drill meets held and competed in
throughout the year by the thirteen JROTC’s that make up the local Brigade. Patrick Henry’s has
been moving up in the ranks and their third place Cadet Challenge finish leaves them currently in
fourth place and within striking distance of the award. The final results are to be decided on May
1st when the Patriot Battalion participates in the final Drill Meet competition. Regardless of the
results Patrick Henry Commanding Officer and Cadet Challenge team member, Troy Leak, is
still proud of his cadets: “I'm proud of the team and the individual effort they put forth. In the
future, I know their efforts will pay off, as they take the competition to the national level. While I
myself may be graduating, I have faith that the Patriots will go far with the momentum we've
built this year.”

MSgt Bricke, Patrick Henry noted after the event that this was “a great showcase for the
students, it gives them an opportunity to see that the demanding PE activities they participate in
during the school week do pay off…I am so proud of them for taking home both individual and
team honors and representing their school so well.”

The Color Guard Team has ended their Winterguard Season with a great finish! After their 6 regular
season competitions, they ended up with five 1st Place wins and one 2nd Place win. At their
Championship performance last Saturday night, the team won 2nd Place in their division out of 15 color
guards and each team member received a Silver Medal for their accomplishment. Of the 92 high school
color guards that competed in their Regional A Class across Southern California, our Patrick Henry High
School Color Guard had the 4th highest score out of the 92 color guards. The hard work of the 15 girls
and 2 boys on the team over the last 5 months has truly paid off! We are very proud of them! Look them
up on youtube to see all of their performances this season.
