Dear Mission Vista High School Families,

 

Next Thursday, January 18th at 6pm, MVHS will host the final Start Smart session of the school year.  Start Smart is a free two-hour course that provides teen drivers and their parents with an opportunity to clearly understand their responsibilities when a teen starts to drive.

 

Mission Vista High School now requires all student drivers wanting to park on campus to complete the Start Smart driver’s safety program, which is hosted by the California Highway Patrol.  Students, along with one parent/guardian must attend and complete the program in order to obtain a school parking permit.  Any 9th-12th grade student who has recently obtained his/her driver’s license or will earn it at some point in the next calendar year is encouraged to attend.  Students who have already attended the course in the past are not required to attend again.

 

There is no need to register in advance for the Start Smart course as students will check in with their school ID card at the door. Students who are currently 18 years of age are not required to be accompanied by a parent/guardian to the course.

 

Doors to the Theatre will open at 5:30 p.m on January 18th, and the Start Smart session will begin at 6:00 p.m.

With the MVHS campus being closed until further notice, the Timberwolf Foundation Tree delivery had to be moved.

 

Delivery Location for Saturday, December 9th: 8am-11-am

Vista Optimist Club

600 Optimist Way

Vista CA

 

A Note from the Foundation...

We had an impressive turn out of volunteers, parents, students, friends, administration, who all made the Christmas tree delivery possible and successful! It was healing to share our experiences, evacuations, near evacuations, losses and blessings. So grateful!

 

Importantly, Many many thanks to the Vista Optimist Club who allowed the Mission Vista High School Timberwolves Foundation Booster Christmas Tree Fundraiser event to use their lot for the Christmas tree delivery and pick up!  We were going to use MVHS’s outdoor basketball courts but that was impossible due to the Lilac Fire. I’m so grateful for the Optimist Club and the way it supports the Vista Community.

Three Mission Vista High School students recently participated in the Augmented and Virtual Reality Festival at the Reuben H Fleet Science Center.  The students, Cole P, Joseph M, and Blake V, created their VR game specifically for the event and presented their game to visitors of the Fleet Science Center.  The MVHS Computer Science students were invited to exhibit at the VR Festival because of their previous success of hosting the Genius in the House event at the Fleet Science Center earlier in the school year.

 


 

Cole, Joseph, and Blake collaborated on an outer space VR game that took them three weeks to complete.  The students used the skills they learned in their Computer Game Programming class and worked as a team to create the amazing game.  They had not worked with Virtual Reality prior to creating this game and had to learn the intricacies of Google VR for Unity and Android App development.  The VR game put the player in an immersive outer space setting where the player had to dodge asteroids and shoot at alien spaceships.

 


 

Joseph and Blake, who also participated in the Genius in the House event, asserted that the AR and VR Festival went even better than the Genius in the House event.  The Fleet Science Center guests were very excited to put on the VR headsets and try out the students' game.  It was surprising to find out that most of the visitors had never experienced VR and they all enjoyed the immersive experience.  Many of the children and even some of the grown men didn't want to take the headset off and a few of the guests even came back to play the game a second time.  The students enjoyed talking about VR game programming and were pleased to introduce VR to so many of the Fleet Science Center guests.

Two current and four former Mission Vista High School students were recently invited to host the Genius in the House event at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.  The event normally invites prominent scientists to come and share their expertise with visitors to the Fleet.  MVHS Computer Science teacher, Jeffrey Yee, was thrilled to hear that the students were asked to host the event.  The students that participated were Blake V, Joseph M, Thomas W, Chris M, Michael T, and Miguel M.  The students presented computer games that they created at this summer's Making Games with Movement Hackathon.

 


 
The Making Games with Movement Hackathon was hosted by UCSD and required the teams to create games using non-traditional game controllers like the Tobii Eye Tracker, LEAP Motion Controller, and Kinect for Windows.  Miguel and Michael used the LEAP controller to allow the player to use different hand motions to protect helpless creatures from charging animals, Joseph, Blake, and Thomas used the Kinect to track the player's arm and hand movements to cast magical orbs, and Chris and his team used the Tobii eye tracker to enable a game to be played with only their eyes.  The success of their games was noticed by organizers of the Hackathon and they put the students in contact with executives from the Fleet.  The students were asked to present their games to the Fleet staff including the director of exhibits.  The Fleet staff was so impressed with the presentation that they immediately asked the students to host the Genius in the House event.
 
The event coincided with the Fleet's major showcase exhibit, Game Masters: The Exhibition.  The students did a fantastic job hosting the Genius in the House event.  They spent nearly four hours talking with visitors to the Fleet and spoke with well over one-hundred people of all ages.  The students let the visitors play their games and the students explained the details of how they created the games.  All the visitors were amazed that high school students could create such impressive computer games.

Magnet Schools of America logo

 

Mission Vista High School Joins First National Cohort of Magnet Schools to Meet Rigorous Standards of Excellence and is one of ten schools in the nation to be recognized as a Demonstration Magnet School 

 

Oceanside, CA, August 25, 2017  Mission Vista High School has been named a Nationally Certified Demonstration Magnet School by Magnet Schools of America (MSA), the national association for magnet and theme-based schools. Mission Vista High School was among the first 55 schools located in 12 states (AL, CA, CT, FL, LA, MD, NC, NV, SC, TN, TX, and WI) to successfully complete an approximately nine month evaluation process and demonstrate through evidence, reflection, and strategic action that it has established the best practices entailed in the Magnet School Standards of Excellence. 

 

“In an increasingly complex school choice environment, parents, families, students, and local communities can be confident that each nationally certified magnet school is held to the same high standards,” said MSA Executive Director Todd Mann. “The certification process is groundbreaking and the first of its kind. It was created to recognize our most exemplary magnet programs.” 

 

The national certification process is based on the Magnet School Standards of Excellence and the five pillars of magnet schools (diversity; innovative curriculum and professional development; academic excellence; high quality instructional systems; and, family and community partnerships). These pillars and standards define the essential elements and characteristics of high-quality magnet programs. 

 

To become nationally certified, Mission Vista High School submitted a detailed application and participated in a rigorous evaluation conducted by the National Institute for Magnet School Leadership (NIMSL). The application process required the school to submit evidence demonstrating how it met each of the multiple indicators included in the Standards of Excellence. This included providing specific examples of how the school is promoting school diversity, closing the achievement gap, integrating a theme-based curriculum throughout the school, and encouraging parent and community involvement. 

 

Among the first cohort of nationally certified schools, Mission Vista High School was one of ten identified as National Demonstration Schools. These schools exceeded the criteria outlined in the Standards of Excellence and are models that should be closely studied and replicated. The Demonstration Schools will serve as learning laboratories for school innovation and improvement for others to observe and follow. 

 

“This is an important opportunity to showcase the transformative leadership and instructional best practices that are integrated into these exceptional schools,” said Kelly Bucherie, National Director for Magnet School Leadership. “The bar has been set very high for magnet schools and other choice programs. Achieving this prominent status should inspire others to strive for similar levels of excellence.” 

 

Mission Vista High School, a comprehensive, dual-magnet high school that opened in 2009, and after several years of rapid growth, the school currently serves 1690 students. MVHS offers a total of 62 unique, magnet-themed courses and pathways in the areas of Arts, Communication, Science and Technology. In addition to this, the school hosts more than 35 visual and performing arts performances for our community each year, and students enrolled in various magnet-themed programs have opportunities to work with community partners, including the University of California at San Diego, AT&T, Genentech Laboratories, local Apple stores, and a variety of local organizations. MVHS operates on a 4x5 block schedule in which students take eight classes each year. This allows them more opportunities to explore their strengths, interests, and values through our vast and unique program offerings. In 2017, MVHS was awarded the California Department of Education Gold Ribbon Award for its magnet programs. 

 

Mission Vista High School will be recognized during a ceremony held at Magnet Schools of America’s 36th National Conference in Chicago, Illinois April 25-29, 2018. The school is also eligible to order a National Certification banner to display at the school and will receive an electronic seal to place on its website and on other appropriate school materials.

Many of you may have heard about the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday the 21st, I want to share some critical information about it. 

Safety:
First, at our school site you will only witness a partial eclipse (details below) which means that AT NO POINT SHOULD ANYONE LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN, NOT EVEN WITH SUNGLASSES.  (Or even welding masks)  This will result in blindness ranging from partial and/or temporary to complete and irreversible.  Only undamaged, certified solar viewing glasses should be used, and they should be placed on before looking at the sun and removed only after looking away.

If you don't have appropriate protection, a pinhole in an index card can be used to project the image of the sun onto a piece of paper or another flat surface for safe indirect viewing. (This can be done with the sun on normal days as well.)

Timing:
The moon will begin to cover the sun at 9:07 AM PDT. The coverage will continue to increase until it reaches its maximum coverage at 10:22 AM PDT, at which point the moon will be covering 59% of the sun. The moon will continue moving off of the sun until 11:46 AM PDT, at which point the sun will be completely visible again. (http://eclipseamerica.org/eclipse-time)

Yes, this means that on our first late start Monday the eclipse will begin during first period and end during second.  Students will all be out of class just before the peak of the eclipse for your location.  Please give them a safety reminder beforehand. 

Significance:
The last total eclipse visible from the contiguous U.S. was 1979, the next will be 2024, after that it will be 2045.  This only happens a few times a century (which is why I will be out of state assisting in a citizen science project) but since MVHS will only see a partial eclipse, it is worth noting that even those aren't terribly common. About 2-3 partial eclipses are viewable in San Diego each decade, and half of those are the moon just grazing the edge of the sun. For many students, this may be the first solar eclipse they are aware of, and most of them will likely never see a total eclipse in person.



Thank you,

Mr. Forester / MVHS Science Dept.

Anne Fennell from Mission Vista High School, Vista Unified School District, California Named 2017 National Magnet School Teacher of the Year


 

Magnet Schools of America (MSA), the national association for magnet and theme-based schools is pleased to announce that Anne Fennell from Vista Unified School District’s Mission Vista High School in Oceanside, California is the 2017 National Magnet School Teacher of the Year. Through a competitive application process, Ms. Fennell was selected from a group of eight Regional Teachers of the Year dispersed across the country. The award was announced during MSA’s 35th National Conference in Los Angeles, California on April 29, 2017.

 

University of Colorado and University of San Diego Alumna, and founding faculty member of Mission Vista High School, a dual magnet high school in Vista Unified School District, Ms. Fennell is currently the Visual and Performing Arts Department Chair, teaches three levels of music composition through technology and three levels of steel drum ensemble. As a classroom teacher, Anne Fennell focuses on educating the whole student. In her own experience as a student, Anne Fennell was told by a band teacher that music ‘wasn’t for her’ and through this initial criticism Fennell persisted. This negative experience (and future positive experiences with teacher-mentors) inspired Ms. Fennell to never give up on any student. She says that, “…all students have the capacity to learn, and errors can be a point of growth, not an opportunity to quit.”

 

Prior to starting Mission Vista High School with a team of other like-minded educators, Fennell taught K-6 general music at Mission Viejo. She later took another K-6 music teaching position in Garden Grove Unified Schools where she learned more about the art of teaching and learned how to effectively integrate music into other academic subjects. These experiences prepared Fennell for her role at Vista Academy of Visual and Performing Arts (K-8). Here she taught music, integrated music into all other subjects, and also began writing curriculum and supporting other professional teachers in arts integration. Fennell’s range of unique roles and experiences qualified her to establish Mission Vista’s programs in coordination with her colleagues and develop curricula for the courses she teaches now. Ms. Fennell is practiced in educating students as well as leading other professionals in arts integration across curricula.

 

Upon receiving the award, Fennell said, “I am truly honored to receive the Magnet Schools of America Teacher of the Year Award. I am thrilled to be a part of Magnet Schools of America and to share this resource that guides schools to be their best. As a magnet school teacher, I have had the opportunity to create innovative programs to engage students and to grow as an educator, which is directly related to the endless possibilities magnet programs provide. I love my students, their creativity and energy, and all that they strive to achieve every day. This award is truly a part of who they are and represents each of them as I am given the opportunity to facilitate their creative, academic, and personal growth.”

 

The National Magnet School Teacher of the Year Award was established in 2010 and is given annually to an outstanding magnet school teacher who is acknowledged by their peers, parents and students for their exemplary contributions made to their profession. These educators have demonstrated their skill and ability to inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn, as well as their aptitude for building relationships with parents and members of their community.

Nine Mission Vista High School students competed and won first place in this year's AT&T Mobile App Hackathon in San Diego.  The students that participated were Tyler C, Allan G, Ryan G, Luke H, Isaac H, Annora J, Ryan K, Alan K, and Andrew Y.  Their prize for winning the competition was $500 and a tour of the San Diego Cybersecurity Division led by Gary Hayslip, Chief Information Security Officer for the City of San Diego. 

Hackathons are computer coding competitions, where teams build mobile apps from scratch over a 24 hour period.  The apps are then presented to judges and prizes are awarded for the best apps. At this year's hackathon, teams competed in one of three categories. 

 

The MVHS team beat out over ten other teams in the "Best Use of City of San Diego API's" category.  Over 100 programmers entered the competition which included over 30 students from colleges that included USC, UCSD, UCI, and SDSU.  The competition also included at least 15 CEO and founders of tech companies and over 50 professional engineers from companies that included Intuit, Qualcomm, and Intel.

 

The MVHS students created an app named SDConnected.  The app accessed the city’s event dataset to enable users to conveniently locate information describing city events like concerts, sports, and festivals.  Another feature of the app helped citizens locate their neighborhood polling location for the upcoming election

MVHS Hack A Thon Team Presentation

Gary Hayslip, who acted as one of the judges, was amazed at how much the team accomplished in the 24 hour timeframe.  Although the students have a lot of coding experience, the group started the competition knowing very little about Android development. The entire team was determined to learn the technology and then design and create a meaningful app.  Most of the students slept for only a few hours, spending most of the time focused on completing the app. 

 

The team was extremely pleased with their finished product and how successful they were able to collaborate as a group.  The hackathon would have been a success even if they had not won, but winning was the icing on the cake and confirmed that they could perform at the highest of levels.  After the competition was over, many of the competitors congratulated the students and asked them the name of their high school.  The students were proud to say that they were there representing Mission Vista High School.
