Should be snowing!

If it's going to be this cold it really should at least snow! 'Twas hailing this morning though, which is fun.

CANNED FOOD DRIVE class competition (between each grade) going on right now. Finishing the Friday before winter break... put cans in the box in your adviser's classroom. Pizza party as prize!

Just one more week of school until winter break... Christmas is my favorite holiday - it can't be postponed or put off for the year like birthdays can! I just like it because of the lovely spirit of everything and the cheery elevator music.

There will be a winter ball this year, put on by the sophomore class - yeah! The date is still being decided.

Look for the SONAR class's article in the newspaper (Beacon, Advocate, one in Crescent City/one in Humboldt) publicizing their participation as an initiative group in the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) process. We'll be crafting & submitting a map of the northcoast region of California, dividing it into many different areas that we think should be made into 'marine protected areas' to protect our marine ecosystem. We're in contact with the Sierra Club, Del Norte & Humboldt county representatives, and others so that we can share data and create the best possible array. This is an important environmental step for the state and the world, so that the SONAR class is its own group, helping to make it happen, is incredible!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

On Friday, November 20th, senior portraits, "I will always remember" statements, and a quote was due for seniors so that they can be put in the yearbook - get them in on Monday after Thanksgiving Break if you couldn't last Friday.

November 30th: UC application deadline.

During the weeks between Thanksgiving Break and Winter Break there will be a canned food drive at school. The competition winners (by grade level) will get a free pizza party at the end of it. Students should put cans of food in designated boxes in their class advisors' rooms.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Mendocino High School sweeps it away in Zone of Focus Photography Show

Mendocino High School sweeps it away in Zone of Focus photography contest. Out of more than 400 entries this year only 40-50 were chosen to be in the Santa Rosa photography show. People placed as follows:

Although they did not receive any awards they are included in the photography show:
1. Erin Yelda - Landscape
2. Hannah Daniel - Landscape

People who placed in the show were:
1. Hannah Rittiman -
A. Honorable Mention - Landcape (she took this picture with a Diana Camera)
B. She also had an abstract picture included in the show.
2. Allison McMillan - 3rd Place - Social Landscape - $50 prize
3. Jisu Youn - 2nd Place - Still Life - $100 prize
4. Caitlin Green -
A. 2nd Place - Landscape - $100 prize
B. She also had a social landscape picture included in the show.

New Emerging Band

Although I cannot remember their name, their music is memorable. Over AE week Marshall Brown, Vincent Longo, Tim Johnson, and Bing York came together to create a symphony of sounds which later filled the room at senior project night in the community school. Although only recently formed, their music is lively and fresh, and served to finish the night leaving everyone in jubilant spirits. They are now selling a demo CD and will soon be selling a CD of finished pieces. Contact Marshall Brown if interested. Maybe a community school dance is in order? This band would be the perfect accompaniment. 

Senior Project Night at the Community School

A diverse array of projects filled the room last wednesday for the community schools' senior project night. There was singing, guitar playing, two stellar photography displays, a handcrafted wooden bench, acting displays, technological feats and much more. 

PROM!!!

The junior class pulled off the event wonderfully. The theme of Alice in Wonderland encompassed the event. Prom was held at the Mendocino Middle School Gym which was miraculously transformed to look like the house of cards.

The Mendocino Community High School presents ³Sylvia,² a play about a dog, a
man, and his wife. Directed by Senior Laurel Livezey, this pedigreed play
centers around the stray dog that Greg found while trying to avoid work.
Immediately, he grows attached to the feisty and loud mutt, while his wife,
Kate, does just the opposite. As Greg falls head over heels for Sylvia, Kate
watches her perfectly organized life and suitable marriage slowly unravel.
One word of caution. Although a delightful and light comedy, Sylvia isn¹t
the best for young children. But, four letter words aside, this reading is
energetic and full of physical comedy. It runs on January 23, 24, 30, and 31
at 7:00 PM, and January 25 and February 1 at 2:00 PM. It will be performed
at the Matheson Performing Arts Center, and there is a $5 suggested
donation. For more information, call Kamala at 937-0138.

New website: MendocinoUSD.org

The Mendocino Community High School presents ³Sylvia,² a play about a dog, a
man, and his wife. Directed by Senior Laurel Livezey, this pedigreed play
centers around the stray dog that Greg found while trying to avoid work.
Immediately, he grows attached to the feisty and loud mutt, while his wife,
Kate, does just the opposite. As Greg falls head over heels for Sylvia, Kate
watches her perfectly organized life and suitable marriage slowly unravel.
One word of caution. Although a delightful and light comedy, Sylvia isn¹t
the best for young children. But, four letter words aside, this reading is
energetic and full of physical comedy. It runs on January 23, 24, 30, and 31
at 7:00 PM, and January 25 and February 1 at 2:00 PM. It will be performed
at the Matheson Performing Arts Center, and there is a $5 suggested
donation. For more information, call Kamala at 937-0138.

FOUND: gold, adjustable ring in Robin Curry¹s room. See Barb to identify
and claim.

What is Sonar?

School of Natural Resources!
Environmental Science - Ecology - Ecoliteracy - Fine Arts

PROGRAM GOALS
  • Fosters student stewardship of natural resources
  • Collaboration among students, teachers, community members and practicing scientists
  • Student acquisition of data for natural resource agencies
  • Maintenance of reliable and high quality databases
  • Provide job shadowing and career awareness in Natural Resource management
  • Provide training and equipment for Natural Resource monitoring
  • Sharing of data with participating agencies and community groups
Sonar is a school-within-a-school concept which incorporates scientific and artistic inquiry into our local ecosystems: coastal marine, redwood, and riparian. Our philosophical base is the process of gaining knowledge to understand whole systems. This process helps students grasp concepts such as development, interaction and management. Working with natural resource agencies, such as Fish and Game, local watershed awareness groups, and Parks and Recreation, students will be trained to collect and present information in a scientific way about the conditions of local streams and marine habitat. Students learn how ecosystem managemenet can be an ethic for wise stewardship of resources here on the Mendocino coast and elsewhere, and how SONAR can be a pathway for students' future careers in a field related to natural resource mangaement or in higher educational settings.

SONAR

Mendocino High Schools Sonar class has been actively involved in community work for many years. Sonar participates with its youthful energy to restore property within the community and bring awareness to local environmental issues. One such project which they are working on currently is bringing awareness to the declining salmon population in Little North Fork of Big River. Unlike the previous year’s larger Sonar class, the size of Mendocino’s precious environmental class has shrunk to a small group of eight students. Regardless of the size, these students have been working arduously to give back to the community.

In late 2008, part of Big River Haul Road started to erode into the Big River estuary. This problem was due to lack of vegetation to hold the soil together . The landslide soil mixed with the estuary water and contaminated the estuary by increasing the amount of soil in the water. This was greatly disruptive to the underwater ecosystem. Therefore, Mendocino Fish and Game Department decided to tackle the issue. Along with students from Ukiah and Fort Bragg, our Sonar class planted 3-5 year old Dougls Fir Trees along Big River Haul Road. With support and help from the community members and students, Fish and Game managed to plant over 200 trees.

Sonar has been working on counting salmon population up at Little North Fork of Big River for the last two months and has had success in finding yoy(Young Of the Year) and redds(salmon nests) along the paths of the beautiful redwood forests. During the hatching and reproduction periods, Sonar students have been collecting sample data to examine and compare differences in a majority of species, sizes, and populations.

As the year progresses and new upcoming environmental issues arise, Mendocino High School’s Sonar class continues to contribute their experience and knowledge to the community. Its two enthusiatic teachers Robert Jamgochian and Doug Nunn are the driving forces behind the wonderful work that this class has accomplished.
