To my Highlander Family:

 

I am writing this letter to express my sincerest gratitude as I say good bye. As many of you already know, I’ll be leaving my position as Director of Discipline and Attendance to take a position as an Assistant Principal in Northern California. My last official day is December 15, however if you are reading this, I am probably already gone (I am not a fan of saying goodbye). Since 2005, I’ve called this place my second home and to be honest I am very happy with the experience that I gained from many of my past and present colleagues.

 

While I’m excited about the new opportunity, there is also a big part of me that is sad to be saying goodbye to some amazing co-workers and supervisors. I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed our time working together and how much I value the love and friendship you’ve shown me over the past years. We’ve held grudges with one another, broke bread with each other and just as families do, we got passed all of the nonsense and put kids first. 

 

To my students and parents

 

It has been an extreme honor to serve you!!!!You are the reason that I have showed up day in and day out with a smile on my face and love in my heart. I thank all of my past and present parents and students for allowing me to be a part of your journey. As we move forward in this thing called life, always remember that the love was and is real and we will always only be a communication call away.

 

To my Black Student Union Students (Past and Present)

 

BRAVO for all that we have accomplished together!!!!! Last year was a very sentimental year for me and I am overwhelmed with joy from the love that was given and received. As I have often told you, this is just part of our journey and wherever we go in life, we take our experiences with us so we will never be far apart. 

 

I was going to write a longer letter, but this is actually harder than I thought, so instead of saying good bye, I will just say

 

See you soon

DR

    On December 8, 2017 the Hip Hop Dance Team dominated the stage with their amazing talent. The show was filled with colorful lights and music that made everyone want to dance with the team. The songs featured hits of today and also some throwbacks. The dances were precise, with excellent choreography that made each performance full of momentum. When asked how the team prepared for the show, senior, David Nguyen said, “Preparing for the show did require a lot of yelling, but the yelling helps the team work harder and focus more on the dances we work on for show. The team this year is very hardworking and dedicated, but also cheerful and loving.”

    The auditorium was packed with families and friends, all there supporting their favorite dancers. At a point in time, the coaches, Jan Carlo and An Le, called up volunteers to dance for a prize, which the crowd loved. The coaches have given their time and devotion to the Hip Hop team. Junior, Marissa Garza, said “ Jan and An have not only been good coaches to the team but good friends. They push us to work hard and shape us into better people at the same time.” The show was only achievable with not only the dancers, but the coaches who drive the team to exceed its potential. The team also showed their love to the advisor, Anna Jarrell, who was able to make this team possible from the beginning.

   “Family” is a word that was mentioned when each dancer from Hip Hop described the team. The dancers were not only dancing with friends, but had grown with each other, as a family. Junior, Logan Chacon said, “What makes us a team is the fact that we spend so much time together that now, we’re family and even though things get difficult or frustrating sometimes, we’re always there for each other and supporting each other.”The team made it known that they were a family, once it was time to dance because they were able to show off what they had practiced from the start of the year till now, together as a unit.

    As an ending came to the show, the dancers danced their last dance with such power that it would easily not be forgotten. When asked what her favorite part of the show was, junior, Skylir Dennis said, “My favorite part of the show was our final bow. We put hours upon hours of hard work, blood, sweat and tears into an amazing show that went by so fast. It was nice to share such a unique moment with my team.”

    For the Hip Hop team, the evening provided great memories for not only veteran performers, but the first-year teammates as well. Junior, Brandi Cervantes said, “Performing for the first time with Upland Hip Hop team felt amazing, as everyone was feeding off each other’s good vibes and it was just a once in a lifetime experience.”

     On Thursday December 7th, Unity was held in the lower library, during periods three through five. The activity is hosted by the peer program, who also brings you the peer buddy meetings that are held at lunch. Unity is held at least once a month and students can only go by invite. If you are lucky, you can talk to one of the seven supervisors to have your name put on the list for the next meeting.

     Unity was made to help make our school become more of a bully-free zone. During the event, you play games, meet new friends and the deal breaker-a free lunch. You can skip three periods to play games and activities. Some of the games are more or less bonding exercises, which are meant to help you feel. Mr. Pish is one of the seven peer leaders and is also the teacher of the peer class. He mentioned that he loves his position as leader when he said, “I love doing this. I’ve done this for nearly twenty years.” When he was asked if more students should come and participate in the meetings, he said, “Definitely, I would love for more people to be involved.”  

      In Unity, not only do you have a chance to make friends, you can also learn things about your closest friends that you may not have ever known. The games you play, such as trust exercises and confidence-building games are designed to bring people closer together. Overall, it’s a great way to make our school bully-free and more like one big family, where everyone can come together and be friends.

  Senior, Hailey Castelan, is a member of the peer program and one of the leaders of unity. When asked how she felt about the program she said, “You feel like it’s another family. When you feel alone you have someone to lean on, someone to talk to. They won’t judge you.” Brielle Papavero, a freshman who attended the meeting for the first time said, “It’s really nice being able to talk to other kids going through similar things.”

    If you have never participated in a Unity session, you are going to want to take advantage of the opportunity. The chance to bond with students, who have similar interests and experiences as you do, should not be missed.

    Once, every school year, our beloved choir program hosts a dazzling performance called the Elizabethan Dinner. From Thursday, December 7th to Sunday December 10th, the entire choir puts on a dinner show for over 200 guests each night.

    As soon as you walk into the building, you can automatically understand all of the hard work and dedication put into this event. There are rows of tables elegantly decorated to look like royalty would be present. Eleventh grader, Janna Cano, who played Cecily Smith, the poet's wife said,”The decorations are very traditional and well yeah, very nice. It took a whole day to put those decorations up.” There were ”Table Captains” at the end of each table, who tended to the guests and catered to their needs throughout the night.

    The guests each expressed different reactions to the show, when seeing it for the first time. When asked about here first time at the dinner, junior Maddie Thorn said, “My first experience was so amazing and it made me regret not going the years prior. And now, I totally understand the popularity of the event.” Thorn was also surprised at the scale of the production and said, “I was so surprised at how large this event was and it made me realize all the time and effort that each person gave in order to make the night perfect.”

    The students were dressed in different representations of the social classes. There were the servants, who served you food and drinks; the middle class, who walked around the room and interacted with different people sitting at the table; there was, of course, the royal courtiers who sang the majority of the songs. The queen, however, was easily the best dressed there. She had a elegant gown and a sparkling crown that seemed  to reach the sky.  It was quite surprising how seriously these students took their roles. Not once did they break character,e while speaking with the audience or performing. The townsfolk walked around the entire room and sparked conversation with anyone they could. It was very humorous and they made it all up as they went, entertaining you, as you waited for the show to start.

    Once again, it cannot be stressed enough about how much dedication went into this production. Janna Cano also said, “Overall, it was an experience that was tiring but it was inspiring. The whole thing. I loved it...It did get me tired because of all of the practices and rehearsing. But in the end, it was worth it. Everyone who put so much effort into it made it even better.”

    The whole show provided an experience that guests would find difficult to duplicate outside of Upland High School. The overall effort put in by all of the students showed what a dedicated and outstanding group of performers our choir program is.
