We were just notified that composer Navarro Peck is the TI:ME (Technology in Music Education) Composition Winner in the DAW Category, High School (grades 9-12), for the entire U.S. in 2018! (In addition to his recognition, he will also receive a few fantastic gifts.)  His stellar piece, 'Remember Me', was composed for those who were killed in the Stoneman Douglas shooting. His piece was also used for the Drama Club's play regarding school shootings this past spring.

 

This is the 2nd time MVHS has won this award in the past 3 years - Joseph Mumper received this in 2016 and 3 years ago, Chase Balfour won the National Association for Music Education Music Composition contest first place in 2015. Such great news for VUSD, our school, and the program!

Oceanside, CA – Common Sense, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has recognized SCHOOL NAME as a Common Sense School.

 

Mission Vista HS has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to use the immense power of digital media to explore, create, connect, and learn, while limiting the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying. The recognition acknowledges our school's commitment creating a culture of digital learning and citizenship.

 

"We applaud the faculty and staff of SCHOOL NAME for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students' education," said Liz Kline,  VP, Education Programs, Common Sense Education. "Mission Vista HS deserves high praise for giving its students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large."

 

MVHS has been using Common Sense Education's innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with Dr. Howard Gardner of the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to Internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, managing online relationships, and respecting creative copyright. The free resources are currently used in more than 100,000 classrooms nationwide.

 

"We're honored to be recognized as a Common Sense School," said Mrs. Miller, MVHS principal. "By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them unlimited opportunities to maximize and personalize their learning."

Local Students Rank Nationally in Le Grand Concours (National French Contest)

 

Oceanside, CA —

This past March, 48 students from Mission Vista High School participated in Le Grand Concours, a national French contest sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French. Students of French in grades 1-12, in all 50 states and abroad, take a written test and compete against students with similar educational backgrounds for prizes. Nationally, more than 75,000 students competed in this 83rd annual event.

 

At Mission Vista High School:

  • One student, Touge Nhia Yi Ly, qualified as a Platinum Winner, which is the highest award in Le Grand Concours, representing the top 1% of scores in the nation within a student’s respective level. This award includes a platinum medal, a plaque for the student, and a Lauréat National certificate.

  • Five students, Maurice Anderson, Philippe Bruchez, Mariko Herrera, Panny Nhia Yi Ly, and Vivian Schroeder, qualified as Gold Medal Winners by scoring in the 95th percentile nationally in their respective levels or years of French taken.  Students earned a gold medal and a Lauréat National certificate for their efforts.

  • Nine students, Cherianne Cruz, Josephine Doan, Michael Garcia, Genevieve Haskin, Jennifer Hernandez-Romero, Erin Kennedy, Katarina Newman, Isabella Ossiander, and Alexandra Sibaja, qualified as Silver Medal Winners by scoring nationally between the 85th and 90th percentile in their respective levels.  These students earned a silver medal and a Lauréat National certificate for their efforts.

  • Eleven students, Jayden Alton, Jared Alvernaz, Caitlin Cielo, Mercedes Coppola, Michael Lee,  Sarah Mackey, Heidi Martinez, Skylar Mason, Malia Mohrman, Jazielyn Morales, and Emily Rivera, earned a Bronze medal and a Lauréat National certificate by scoring in the 80th or 75th percentile nationally in their level of French.

  • In addition, eleven students received a Mention d’honneur certificate because they scored above the national average in their respective level. These students are Noah Anschuetz, Uziel Belverde, Alex Davis, Mason Houskeeper, Jessica Jacinto, Sarah Kelly, Samantha Perez-Robinson, Berit Poirier, Zayra Rosales, Hannah Thornton, and Max Wygal.

 

Besides being an effective assessment of ability and progress over the years, the Grand Concours is also practice for college placement tests, SAT II and the AP test. The National French Contest is a way to gain experience taking these types of tests.

 

AATF President Catherine Danièlou indicated:  French students who rank nationally in Le Grand Concours demonstrate a superior level of global responsibility, integrative cultural competence, language skills, and commitment to excellence and dedication. They significantly increase their community’s international profile. Their French teachers, whom they honor, work hard to produce responsible world citizens with multilingual capabilities. Le Grand Concours participants and winners all embrace an appreciation for other cultures, strive to continually learn and improve, and value the study of French. We are very proud of them and admire their commitment to both contributing to a better world and serving as exceptional ambassadors for their schools.

VUSD is conducting a stakeholder perception survey as part of the work in understanding a range of issues central to student access to a rigorous education: course-taking decisions, expectations and counseling for post-secondary success, instructional quality, and supports for academic success. We hope that our parents, staff, and students will participate; stakeholder perceptions are critical to understanding Educational Opportunity in school districts, since students, parents, and teachers offer critical insights.

What is the Educational Opportunity Assessment Survey?
  • The survey is will help assessing the level and degree to which high schools prepare students for postsecondary success.
  • Your district will receive critical insights from different stakeholders – staff, teachers, parents, and students – into a range of issues central to student access to a rigorous education.
  • You will see how perception differs between and among groups of stakeholders for course taking, expectations for postsecondary success, instructional quality, and support.

What topics does the survey cover?

You will learn about implementation and perception in four areas:

·         course-taking decisions

·         expectations and counseling for post-secondary success

·         instructional quality

·         supports for academic success

Mission Vista High School students were invited back to the Fleet Science Center for a third time to present their computer games.  The Fleet just completed a six month run of their popular exhibit, Game Masters: The Exhibition, and wanted the MVHS students to come back one last time before the exhibit closed.

 

The eight computer science students, Blake V., Joseph M., Brian S., Daniel D., Dylan M., Jackson S.,  Noah S., and Vincent R. were invited to be the “Genius in the House” and created computer games specifically for the exhibit.  

 

Ashanti Davis, Exhibits Project Supervisor at the Fleet, said, “Genius in the House is a great way for students, professionals and enthusiasts to share their expertise in science, technology, art, and mathematics, with visitors of all ages at the Fleet Science Center.  With an exhibition like Game Masters, it can be challenging for many to get past the notion of video games and to see them for what they are: computer science, engineering, and art.  We hope that our visitors were inspired after their experiences with students from MVHS.“ 

 


The games ranged from a car driving game to an outer space virtual reality game.  Joseph who participated in all three Fleet events was pleased to see that the interest and excitement of the Fleet guests kept getting bigger and better each time he was invited back.  Blake who also participated all three times said that he was happy when around a hundred people visited the first time but was blown away when close to two hundred people stopped by to check out their games this most recent time.  For Vincent, Noah, Jackson, Dylan, Daniel, and Brian, this was their first experience presenting at the Fleet and all enjoyed the opportunity and were amazed by how interested the Fleet guests were with their games.  As was the case with the previous exhibits, the Fleet patrons could not believe that high school students had the knowledge and ability to create such impressive games.  Akiko Hicks, Exhibits Experience Lead at the Fleet, has really appreciated having the MVHS students exhibit at the Fleet.  Akiko said, “Every time I see the MVHS students, I am surprised by their ability to present their projects to the public.  Their games are amazing, but what makes the students special is their ability to share their programming knowledge with our visitors.”  

 

Not only were the Fleet guests interested in playing the games, but many were also interested in how the students created the games since many of the adult guests worked as programmers and engineers.  

 

Demonstrating at the Fleet has been a great opportunity for the students to meet people that have careers working with technology.  One former MVHS student who was part of the first exhibit received a summer internship after talking with a Fleet guest that worked in the aerospace industry.  

 

MVHS computer science teacher, Jeffrey Yee, has also met a number of Fleet guests who have been so impressed with the students that they are interested in finding ways to connect their work with the MVHS CS program.  Now that the Game Masters exhibit is closed, the MVHS CS program hopes to continue working with the Fleet by presenting at future exhibits.  Ashanti Davis said, “We look forward to further collaboration with MVHS around computer science in Studio X, our maker and innovation studio.”  

 

The MVHS CS program has purchased an HTC Vive Virtual Reality system and has plans to design and implement immersive games and simulations for the Fleet.  These experiences with the Fleet has inspired the entire MVHS CS program to keep exploring new and creative ways to use their programming skills to help benefit the community.

Congratulations, Timberwolves!!

 

Over MLK Jr weekend our Theatre Timberwolves once again attended the California Educational Theatre Association High School Theatre Festival in Rancho Cucamonga. This is the third year in a row that MVHS has had the honor of performing their entire play or a ten minute scene from their play. They performed a scene from their recent production of The Crucible and were recognized by adjudicators and the approximately 1,200 students with both Best Ensemble and Audience Favorite awards.  


 

A little about the event...

Each year between October and December, the California Educational Theatre Association adjudicates Fall productions throughout the Southern California Region. The top high school productions are presented at our CETA Southern High School Theatre Festival during the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend.

 

The weekend offers a variety of opportunities including workshops led by professionals in the industry encouraging artistic growth for high school students and their teachers.

 

The three-day Festival showcases four MainStage plays selected from four regions of Southern California: Los Angeles, Orange County, the Inland Empire, and San Diego County. Additionally, eight schools are selected to perform 10-minute scenes from their productions for the Festival’s SceneFest. The CETA Southern High School Theatre Festival is open to all high schools across the state of California.

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.
