Over the past two weeks, Mr. Craig's Wood 1 & 2 students along with Mrs. Spears art students have collaborated to build over 2000 toys to be donated to local charities.  These charities include Wings of Faith (an Airplane Pilots organization), Operation Christmas Child (Samaritan's Purse), Inland Empire Scroll Saw Association (working with Fontana Police Department and Fontana Unified School District), Spark of Love (ABC Channel 7).  The students met their goal of 2000 toys on Tuesday, November 14th.  The first beneficiary of the toys, Tom Leedom of Wings of Faith, accepted the hand made toys on Wednesday, November 15th.  He will be sending pictures of these student made toys as they get distributed this holiday season.

The Plaid, Staff Writers

    The Upland High Theatre Department succeeds in bringing the spirit and embodiment of New York onto our school’s stage. They will be presenting “A New York State of Mind,” a collection of four plays centered in none other than the lively city of New York. Unlike previous years, the production will feature a combination of stories, on which assistant director, Nia Bratton said,  “We wanted to do something a bit different. The author, Jason Odell Williams, gave us the play and my theatre teacher found three other plays that complemented that. So, we brought them all together and told the story like that.”

     Another difference in the theatre production is that it will be presented in the style of a black-box theatre; a simple performance space, with props and backdrops. Concerning these interesting new changes, Nia said, “We always try to see what we didn’t do last year and do new things.” The plays featured are Ask Me My Name, by Hannah Horvath; Dog Park, by Jason Odell Williams; DMV Tyrant and Funeral Parlor, by Christopher Durang. The stories all interact with each other, to be told as one.    

    This weekend’s production has not come without the hard work of the cast and crew, who have dedicated an immense amount of their time and energy into bringing us the play.  Actor, Caden Stearns said, “Over the past few weeks we have put about twenty to thirty hours a week, just dedicated to this one production,” however this sacrifice has not left the actors empty handed.

    When asked about what he looks forward to the most when preparing for a production, Caden said, “My favorite thing is the entire build up of going from not knowing your lines or anything and within a week, you know everything about the show. So, I guess it’s the whole process of becoming my character through the time we put in.” Ultimately, the actors strive to craft the perfect play through their mutual passion for acting and providing entertainment. Actor Melissa Gallup said, “We all want to stay here as long as we can and make these productions as good as they can be. It doesn't matter how long we stay here as long as everything is perfect and every single problem works out and the show goes on no matter what.”

    New and humorously refreshing, the four-segment play is, in the words of assistant director Nia, “Not like any other play this theatre company has ever done. It’s raw. It's witty. It’s funny. It’s just something you can enjoy. It’s something that’s real. A lot of the times, we have done shows that are imaginary, but this play shows real-life stuff.¨

    The new approach to Upland High School’s theatricals is meant to affect the audience with sarcastic humor and all-too-relatable themes. However, it is the cast and crew that have made the play a worthwhile experience. Actor,Emily Nodal, said, “The actors are all passionate and the tech crew are so good and talented. Ms. Rich, our theater director, is really creative and her vision helps put together such an amazing show.”

    “A New York State of Mind” will be performing October 26, 27, and 28 at 7 pm, with the cost for admission set at $10. The money from tickets will go to the funding of the theatre department, either to fund more shows or for doing community service. Whether you have seen every previous production or have never gone at all, the UHS Theatre department welcomes you to come out and experience a “New York State of Mind.”

We are eager to share with you our plans for Grad Bash 2018!  We are excited to announce that we will be attending Universal Studios Hollywood Grad Bash this year!  As you know, we have previously attended Disneyland’s GradNite.  Disneyland raised their prices (our cost would have been $195/ticket) and eliminated a few weeks worth of  dates leaving our date unavailable.   Our hope is that this new location and lower price (our cost will be under $100) will allow for so many more of our seniors to attend!   Please save this important info in your calendars:

 

Universal Studios Grad Bash 2018

Friday, June 8th

We will leave school early afternoon on the 8th and return home at approx 4:30am on the 9th

People have been asking, what is the purpose of a Black Student Union? The BSU of Upland High School is an organization, whose primary concern and function is to assist students in their educational endeavors. Realizing that students have needs outside the educational institutions, the Black Student Union attempts to provide supportive services, which may or may not be directly educationally related, yet equally important to the educational experience. The Black Student Union also attempts to raise the level of consciousness and awareness of the student body as well as the schools administrators in the areas of black concerns. The Black Student Union also serves as a liaison between the community and the high school. Some of our goals include but not limited to: Providing scholarship money for seniors, assist in paying for senior applications and or SAT/ACT tests for any active member, pay for future events, hardships and so much more. The success of your BSU will depend completely on you. Are you ready?

 

Last year was a wonderful and bittersweet year! We had some huge successes along with a tragic loss of a dear friend. All in all our positive experiences outweighed the negative. We formed relationships that I am sure will live on for years to come. So come out and see what we’re all about.

 

 

How do you join?

 

All you need to do is come to a meeting and get involved!!! Meetings are every Thursday from 3pm-3:45pm in room D135.

 

We are look for some great leaders to take us into this new school year, will it be you?

 

Anyone is welcome to join; however how active you are is up to you.

Hope to see you there!

    Before Friday night, there were questions in the air surrounding the Upland Highlanders. Who would arise to team leader roles as last year’s seniors departed? How would the Scots fair in Division 2? After Friday night’s match between the Upland Highlanders and the La Habra Highlanders, we received promising answers to those questions. The Scots brought home a 35 to 7 victory in this season’s opening game.

    Maybe it was the brand new field or the overwhelming amount of excitement from the crowd on Friday night, but whatever the case, the “real Highlanders” looked, played, and executed well in the season opening game. To put Upland’s performance in an analogy, it was like watching an engine fire off on all eight cylinders. Among the night’s best performers for Upland were quarterback, David Baldwin; receiver, Taj Davis, with 137 receiving yards; and Upland’s latest phenom, linebacker, Justin Flowe, who had five solo tackles, one sack, and a total of nine tackles.

    Before people could even take their seats, the home team was already scoring. On the very first offensive play of the game, Baldwin connected with Davis, for an 80-yard touchdown, right alongside the Upland sidelines. Sophomore kicker, Archie Green came out on the field to kick the PAT and put the “Scots” up, seven to zero, just fifteen seconds into the game. With La Habra’s offense onto the field now, all eyes would be on Upland’s linebacker core, thanks in part to the recent ranking of #1 in the Class of 2020 for Justin Flowe, who already has nine full-ride offers from colleges across the country. The defensive star did not disappoint, as he and defensive back, Corey Thomas sacked the La Habra quarterback just a few plays into La Habra’s first drive. After a few minor penalties from both teams seemingly knocking the rust off, Upland regained possession of the ball, late in the first and scored once more by virtue of a three-yard touchdown, run by Cameron Davis, which complemented a touchdown-worthy-drive up the field, by the Scots offense. After the PAT went inches to the left and hit the goal post, the score at the end of the first quarter was 13 to nothing, with the home team riding high and looking good.

    The momentum kept rolling, as Upland’s offense made more quick work of the La Habra defense early in the second. An 18-yard touchdown, run by Cameron Davis, paired with a successful two-point conversion attempt by Kyle Jones, put the home team up 21 to zip, with a little over eleven minutes remaining in the second. The second quarter dragged on with a bit of a defensive battle between the two teams. Both sides were showing off decent defense for the majority of the second quarter. However, one of the more noticeable defensive highlights of the night came with about two minutes left before the half, when defensive back, Corey Thomas earned a solo sack in the backfield, on La Habra quarterback, Ryan Zanelli. The sack and few more defensive stops later, the Scots offense came back onto the field, with little time remaining before halftime. One of the more memorable offensive highlights happened during this drive with about a minute left before the half, when quarterback, David Baldwin was met with immense pressure from the blitzing La Habra defense. Baldwin managed to maneuver and scramble away enough from the defense to be able to connect with an open receiver and save Upland’s drive. With three seconds left before halftime, Baldwin found an open Bryce Parker, for a touchdown pass. A successful PAT by kicker, Archie Green cemented Upland’s lead by 28 points, as the teams headed into the locker rooms.

    After another strong halftime performance by the Upland regiment and color guard, it was time for the players to come back out to the field and for the fans to come back from the snack bars and into the stands. The majority of the third quarter was tame in football terms, except for what could have been a 100-yard, endzone-to-endzone, fumble-recovery-touchdown by Upland defensive back, Caleb Roberson, who also forced the fumble in the first place. However, there were two penalties on the play on both teams, which ultimately called the touchdown back. Although it didn’t count, the play got the home crowd up on their feet and reenergized. The Upland offense would score for the fifth and final time of the night, with two minutes left to go in the third, by virtue of another touchdown and successful PAT. At the end of the third quarter, the Scots were up 35 to squat and La Habra was going to need a miracle, to keep their chances alive.

    Although La Habra finally managed to score, with eight minutes remaining in the fourth and the final quarter of the game, that was all the visiting team had and the Upland Highlanders proved victorious in this rare battle between the Highlanders and the Highlanders. The final score at the end of the night was 35 to zero, and Upland has now opened the season with a win that places them with a 17th-place ranking, in the state of California. When asked how the game went, Upland Coach Kim replied, “We won. We got a lot of improvements to make. It was a good team effort.” Assistant coach, Darryl Thomas also stated, “There’s always improvements. We can always get better. We need to get better. Our offensive line did an extremely good job, driving the ball down the field. Defense did well the whole night too.”

    Arguably one of his best performances to date as Varsity quarterback for the Scots, David Baldwin completed 20 passes out of his 26 attempts, for 322 yards and two touchdowns. By virtue of being 20 for 26, Baldwin’s completion rate was .769 and his overall quarterback rating was 143.4. Adding to his impressive stats from Friday night, Baldwin also never thrown an interception. Overall, the numbers put up by Baldwin on Friday night were respectable and earned recognition by Coach Thomas who also said, “David [Baldwin] looked much more poised tonight.” Certainly, the quarterback’s noticeable improvement from last season, helped ensure the Scots walked away with the win.

    The Highlanders will now prepare for battle against the Claremont Wolfpack, a team the Highlanders defeated 42 to 3 last season. The second game of the season will be this upcoming Friday night, at home, with kickoff at 7:00p.m.

Attention all UHS students that are interested in trying out for 2017-2018 boy's soccer teams.  We will be having our official tryouts on Monday August 28, Wednesday August 30 and Friday September 1, 2017 in the stadium.  All tryouts will begin at 6am and run until 7:20am.  If you attended the summer camp your physicals should be good and there is no need to get another physical but you will need to register on the UHS website (follow directions below). If you did not attend the 2017 summer camp you must register and get a sports physical done before trying out.  You will NOT be allowed to try out if you do not have a sports physical on file with our athletic training dept.  

 

Everyone trying out will need to register regardless if you are a returnee or not. 

 

 You can register for the tryouts at www.uplandhigh.org then click on the “activities page”.  Next click on “athletics”.  Finally, click on “athletic registration”.  It will redirect you to our sports registration page where you can follow the “how to” video for the correct steps on registering.    If you are a returning player you may need to update your info on your account you created this summer and make sure it’s for the 2017-2018 school year.

 

In order to get a physical you will need to do the following:  go to www.uplandhigh.org.  Then click on "activities".  Then select "athletics".  Scroll down to where it says "Physical Exam Form".  Then select "Physical Form" ... DO NOT select the "flyer".   Print out the form and take with you to your doctor.  All physical forms must then be returned to one of our athletic trainers prior to trying out.

 

If you are currently in another sport you will not be allowed to try out for soccer until your current sport season has ended.  You may want to come by and speak with me if this pertains to you.  Your sports physical for your current sport will be good enough for boys soccer tryouts but you will still need to register online.

 

Also, please be advised that there will be a mandatory after school meeting the first Wednesday of school (August 23, 2017).  Meeting will be at 1:45pm (right after 6h period) in room J210

 

If you have any questions stop by my classroom J210 or email me.  Hope to see you all next week.  Coach Diaz

Cross Country team
On July 24th the Upland Men's and Women's Cross Country team traveled up to Big Bear for their annual running camp. Not only did the 3 day trip allow the Highlanders the opportunity to train in high elevation but it also allowed the members of the team a chance to bond and prepare for the upcoming season. After a rebuilding year last year, the Highlanders are looking to make noise in the Baseline League and clinch a spot in the CIF playoffs. 
Any students interested in running Cross Country this fall can contact Coach Huerta or Coach McGee at either Francisco_huerta@upland.k12.ca.us or William_mcgee@upland.k12.ca.us. All you need is a valid physical and a pair of running shoes. Cross Country is a great way to get in shape for any winter or spring sport!

Joseph Anderson
In its 32nd year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, today announced Joseph Anderson of Upland High School as its 2016-17 Gatorade California Boys Track & Field Athlete of the Year. Anderson is the first Gatorade California Boys Track & Field Athlete of the Year to be chosen from Upland High School.

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the track, distinguishes Anderson as California’s best high school boys track & field athlete. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Boys Track & Field Athlete of the Year award to be announced in June, Anderson joins an elite alumni association of state track & field award-winners, including Lolo Jones (1997-98, Roosevelt High School, Iowa), Allyson Felix (2002-03, Los Angeles Baptist High School, Calif.), Robert Griffin III (2006-07, Copperas Cove High School, Texas), Grant Fisher (2013-14 & 2014-15, Grand Blanc High School, Mich.) and Candace Hill (2014-15, Rockdale County High School, Ga.).

The 5-foot-10, 168-pound senior won the 110-meter high hurdles with a state-record time of 13.33 seconds and the 300-meter intermediate hurdles in 36.02 at the state championship meet this past season. Anderson’s 110 hurdles time was ranked as the nation’s No. 1 performance among prep competitors in 2017 at the time of his selection, while his winning effort in the 300 hurdles ranked No. 3 nationally. He also broke the tape in the 110 hurdles at this month’s Brooks PR Invitational.

A devoted member of his church youth group, Anderson has volunteered locally on behalf of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and youth track programs. “When you’re around Joseph, you immediately know that there is something special about him, and that he is destined for greatness,” said Upland High School coach Tarina Brown. “He’s a natural leader and his genuine love for the sport is visible to all.”

Chevron Design Challenge
Freshman Engineering students Tiffany Fierros, Lily Saunier, and Andre Zendejas were selected from their peers to represent Upland High School in the annual Project Lead the Way Chevron Design Challenge at Hawthorne High School. In one day, the students were given a “Design Challenge” in which they had to brainstorm, design, and present a commercial product. They also had to create a 3D model of the product using Autodesk Inventor software and prepare manufacturing drawings. All of this was done in the span of a few hours. The competition culminated with the students presenting their designs to a group of professional engineers in a style similar to the “Shark Tank” TV show. Fifteen teams representing high school engineering pathways were present. While Team Highlander did not place in the top three, they did an amazing job working together under pressure. Tiffany, Lili, and Andre are members of the Academy of Engineering and Architecture pathway here at Upland High School.

Graduation is looming, and some students need their final semester grades to earn CSF honors.

 

If you are able to earn the 100% membership awards (6 semesters, sophomore through senior years), you MUST qualify for your last semester of your senior year in order to qualify for 100% membership.  I will need you to fill out the Google Form and have it submitted by MAY 19 AT 7:45 AM in order for me to calculate your final semester membership.  The good news is you have ALREADY qualified for LIFE membership! J

 

If you have qualified for Life already(4 semesters sophomore through senior years), but cannot qualify for 100%, there is nothing further that you need to do.

 

If you are waiting on your LAST semester to qualify for Life membership (4 semesters sophomore through senior years), you will also need to fill out a Google Form and submit it to me by MAY 19TH, AT 7:45 AM

 

Cut and paste the link into your browser and fill out completely.

 

https://goo.gl/zDOVpO

 

See the attachments for the list of ID numbers for Pending Life members, Life members, and Pending 100% members (remember, if you are pending 100%, you are ALREADY a Life member!!). Also attached is the course list for the List Number (I, II, or III) for students who need the last semester for Life or 100% Honors. You will need both lists, so please be thorough.

 

As always, CSF issues must be dealt with BEFORE school (N248) or over email.

Robotics teamRoboticsStudents from across the US have six weeks to design, fabricate, and test a robot that does very specific tasks.  This year, the robot had to collect giant wiffle balls and throw them into a hoop 10 feet above the ground, collect giant gears and deliver them to a collection station, and at the end of each round the robot had to lift itself up off the ground 4 feet by climbing a rope.  Not an easy task, but one that was accepted by an incredible group of students at UHS.  I am proud to have coached this group of students and even more proud of how well they did at their regional competition.

History Day gives students a chance to compete in a variety of categories on a historical theme. The Elementary Division only has one category of competition, two-dimensional displays. The Junior and Senior divisions compete in exhibit, documentary, performance, website and research paper categories. Only Junior and Senior champions advance to the state competition.

Students in the ROP Architecture class took a trip to the Inland Empire Transportation Management Center located near the 210 and 15 freeways on Friday. The IETMC is the home of CALTRANS and Highway Patrol communications for portions of LA County, and all of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. It is also the place where 911 calls made from the freeways are answered. The purpose of the trip was to explore the building which is designed to withstand an 8.0 earthquake, and maintain state-wide communications using its ability to be self-sustaining with solar power and generators.

The entire building sits atop giant rubber grommets, which allow it to move laterally up to 26” while maintaining structural integrity during a large shaker.

Dear Parents and Students.

 

We are now in the 2nd semester and the year will come to an end before you know it. Before you start your senior year, we want to make sure you have all of your affairs situated. As you know, as seniors, you have the privilege of going off campus (OCP) for lunch and the ability to attain a parking permit. However, these are privileges and not rights. Therefore, you must meet specific requirements to gain access to your OCP and parking permit. Now is the time to correct whatever problems there are so that when you apply, you will not be denied. To attain both the OCP and parking permit, you must:

 

-Serve assigned Saturday Schools (see schoolloop or check in Discipline Office)

-Maintain passing grades (semester grades)

-Maintain satisfactory behavior (suspensions)

-Not be chronically tardy to class (check in discipline office)

-Not be chronically absent from school (check in discipline office)

-Have all fines and checked out books cleared (check with library and student store)

 

Please take time this semester to clean up any problems you may have with the aforementioned to assure a positive and enjoyable senior year. I am looking forward to working with each of you during your last year of high school. Let’s make it the best of your four years!

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Brian Chavez

Discipline Director

Upland High School

Attached is the spreadsheet of hours that I have received up to this point (shelter donations are included). If you have hours you have not turned in, you need to do so, to N248, BEFORE school only (and never during class time--you should be in class). 

 

SENIORS, remember you need to have at least TWO of your twenty hours during your senior year if you want to walk at the front of graduation with your CSF Life or 100% membership. Having over 20 hours, but only ONE during senior year will not qualify you for the front of the class honors. Seniors, you have until March 24th to complete your hours for senior year. This deadline has been set since the beginning of the year. Good luck!

Rop ArchMost people think you need to attend a college or university to take courses in architecture. In Upland, however, you need look no further than Upland High School. In fact, students in the architecture program at UHS have won architectural design awards on the national level. Just last year, John Acayan, a senior, won first place in the nation for his design and development of a Dollar Tree store. John was accepted as a freshman into Cal Poly Pomona’s architecture program upon graduation from UHS. In 2010, senior Taylor Sealey won first place in the nation for her design of a children’s library. Taylor is now working as a Planner for Southern California Edison Company. These are the only two students from California who have placed nationally in the last 20 years. Other notable UHS graduates are Jessica Gitney (2004) a Product Developer for Kohl’s Department Stores, Valerie Schroeder (2004), Construction Office Operations Manager for REIG Construction, and Matias Cena (2006) who is now a Design Architect for Disney Imagineering.

The architecture classes taught by Mr. Brooks are courses offered in the Academy of Engineering and Architecture, one of the career pathways offered at Upland High School.

As we celebrate Black History Month I felt that it would be appropriate to educate those who may not know why there is such a thing called Black History Month. Throughout the decades, schools, media and everywhere you turn America is shown to have its major contributions showcased through a narrow lens that unfortunately minimizes the contributions of African.

 

The story of Black History Month began in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. That September, the Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by black Americans and other peoples of African descent. Known today as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), the group sponsored a national Negro History week in 1926, choosing the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. The event inspired schools and communities nationwide to organize local celebrations, establish history clubs and host performances and lectures.

 

All month long The Black Student Union will be highlighting contributions of African Americans to demonstrate just how much is overlooked and in my opinion taken for granted. As this country continues to move forward, I believe that it is crucial now more than ever that we acknowledge the contributions of ALL people and give the respect that is so richly deserved.

SATURDAY SCHOOL:

 

Saturday School is conducted almost every Saturday for the purpose of making up unexcused absences, ditching, tardies and for violating minor school infractions. This method is provided as an alternative to suspension. Limits may be imposed on the number of times a student is assigned. The class is conducted from 8:00–12:00. Students must report to the front of the library (unless otherwise indicated) before 8:00 a.m., or they may not be admitted. After meeting at the library, students are escorted to a classroom for the day or remain in the library (depending on space availability). Students who do not have any work with them to complete will utilize our APEX learning tutorial module. Apex is designed to assist students in strengthening their skills in subject areas such as Math, English, Science and History. There is a pre and post test to demonstrate that the student has mastered the subject area and also be proof of positive attendance. Disruptive students will be asked to leave and will not receive credit for attendance. Failure to show for an assigned Saturday School indicates the student has opted to receive a day of suspension, which may be assigned as an in-school suspension (ISS) or an at-home suspension. Students are not allowed to leave the building during the break. Breakfast is usually served between 0930-1000 in the cafeteria.

 

All students are responsible for keeping track of their Saturday School assignments; however the Discipline Office will post them on your school loop on a recurring basis. If you are still unsure, please feel free to e-mail- Colleen Rodriguez at Colleen_Rodriguez@upland.k12.ca.us.

Since its inception in 2005, the Bank of America Student Leaders Program has recognized more than 2,300 exemplary high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for improving their communities. The program helps students gain a greater understanding of how nonprofits create impact in the community and helps develop them as the next generation of community leaders through two components:

 

·        A summer eight-week paid internship with a local nonprofit organization selected by the bank. This internship is designed to provide opportunities for the students to develop and apply leadership skills through hands-on work experience, while raising their awareness of community issues addressed by their Host Organization. 

 

·        The week-long, all-expense paid Student Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C. from July 9-14, 2017. Conducted in partnership with the Close Up Foundation, the Summit introduces students to aspects of civic, social and business leadership and provides them with knowledge and skills they will use throughout their life to create positive community change.

Hours completed in previous years and hours completed this Fall semester will not be accepted AFTER DECEMBER 22nd. You have had all semester to verify your hours from past events, and are expected to turn in this current year's events at the end of each month. Service hours need to be as up-to-date as possible in order to be accurate for the end of the year and graduation. It is in YOUR INTEREST,  and your responsibility, to turn your service hours in on time. The day of graduation is not the time to dispute your hours.

 

Seniors, remember that of the TWENTY hours total you must have to walk at the front of graduation (as long as you have earned a CSF honor of Life or 100% Membership), you must complete TWO of those hours your senior year. Deadline for those hours will be the end of 3rd Quarter.

Hello Highlanders:

 

As you know we have had an exciting and wonderful start to our new year, however we need to finish strong. Many of you have had wonderful attendance and for that we thank you; but some of you are not doing so well and will need to change immediately! Allow this to serve as a reminder that in order to participate in activities, your student status must be in good standing.

 

All privileges are subject to be revoked if the following conditions are not met.

 

All students must have acceptable attendance for the quarter. Acceptable attendance will be no more than 2 unexcused absences and no more than 5 tardies for the quarter. The quarter ends December 22, 2016. If a student has any unserved Saturday Schools, they are automatically ineligible to participate in school activities until all Saturday Schools are served. A student may only purchase a ticket to a dance after all of their Saturday Schools have been served.

 

Dances are coming up quick and we just wanted to give you an opportunity to correct your attendance on your own. Also if you were suspended for any reason during the 2nd quarter (October 21-Dec 21st) you are ineligible to participate in any dance for that quarter. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Chavez (Ext 336) or Mr. Rogers ( Ext 310) in the Discipline office.

 

Dates to keep in mind:

 

February 10th -Senior Ball

Tickets will go on sale December 19 for students who qualify.

 

Powder Puff/ Backwards Dance- March 16th-17th

 

April 29th – Prom

BSUPeople have been asking, what is the purpose of a Black Student Union? The BSU of Upland High School is an organization, whose primary concern and function is to assist students in their educational endeavors. Realizing that students have needs outside the educational institutions, the Black Student Union attempts to provide supportive services, which may or may not be directly educationally related, yet equally important to the educational experience. The Black Student Union also attempts to raise the level of consciousness and awareness of the student body as well as the schools administrators in the areas of black concerns. The Black Student Union also serves as a liaison between the community and the high school. Some of our goals include but not limited to: Providing scholarship money for seniors, assist in paying for senior applications and or SAT/ACT tests for any active member, pay for future events, hardships and so much more. The success of your BSU will depend completely on you. Are you ready?

 

How do you join?

All you need to do is come to a meeting and get involved!!! Meetings are every Thursday from 3-30pm in room D135.

President is Alexis Stallworth (Senior)

Advisor: Dwight Rogers (Director of Discipline and Attendance)

Anyone is welcome to join; however how active you are is up to you.

Hope to see you there!
