We are proud to share that five of our campuses are California Gold Ribbon Schools--a giant congratulations to Cypress High School, John F. Kennedy High School (La Palma, California), Western High School (Anaheim, California), Lexington Jr. High and Oxford Academy AUHSD!
AUHSD had the most campuses awarded in Orange County. The five join the schools previously recognized with this honor: South, Walker, Sycamore, Dale, and Brookhurst junior high schools, along with Loara, Savanna, and Anaheim high schools, giving the District a total of 13 Gold Ribbon Schools.
The state selected the winners based on their academic gains in math and English language arts, and on the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards. These schools represent examples of not just excellent teaching, learning and collaborating, but also highly successful school climate efforts, ranging from conflict resolution to positive behavior interventions, state officials said.
Gold Ribbon awardees that are Title I schools were also recognized as Academic Achieving Schools. Western High School received the honor this year, joining Anaheim, Loara and Savanna high schools, plus Brookhurst, Dale, South and Sycamore junior high schools.
“These terrific schools are leading the way in embracing our new rigorous academic standards and showing others how to help students succeed on their way to 21st century careers and college,” said state Superintendent Tom Torlakson. "I look forward to traveling the state to honor these schools and to help share the programs, methods, and techniques that are working.”

We are so proud of our Western High School (Anaheim, California) students and teachers who competed over the weekend at California State University, Fullerton Financial Olympiad.
Our general education economic students competed against mostly AP economic students and brought home some prizes!
Along those prizes are:
Jacob Burt who brought in 1st place in Fast Pitch (60-second business proposal).
Bryce Burris & Veronica Rojas came in 3rd in Fast Pitch.
Ramzieh Kanaan came in 3rd in Stock Market presentation
Western High School (Anaheim, California) overall took 4th place as a school.
Most importantly is that some students were able to overcome their fears of presenting to a large audience. Some found their voices & passion, while other realized "I can do it".

It is wonderful to see all the hard work that our students at Katella High School have done to put together "Katella Talks."
These talks allow students from all grade levels to present issues that are important to them in a TedTalk format.
Talks are student driven, student led, and student-produced on topics that are important to them.
Attached in the introductory video for the 2017 Katella Talk playlist.

The community is invited to Magnolia High School on Saturday, April 22, as scores of AUHSD students put their STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) talents on display during AUHSD’s 2nd Annual STEAM-A-Palooza.
Coinciding with STEAM-A-Palooza will be the District’s second Annual Tech Fair, which will bring some of the biggest and most innovative companies in technology to AUHSD. Google, Apple, Microsoft, Intel, Blackboard, HP and more will be on hand to demonstrate their latest technology. Prizes and giveaways will happen all day from various vendors.
STEAM-a-Palooza is a noncompetitive showcase designed to let students share their deeper learning experiences with the community.
“It’s about students getting others engaged in what they are excited about—what they are learning and why they are in school,” Superintendent Michael Matsuda said. “We know that the creative minds in our District have come up with amazing things to highlight.”
“With the guidance of dozens of teachers who have committed themselves to making this event a success, students will be showcasing the best of themselves,” said Jackie Counts, STEAM-a-Palooza organizer and the District’s professional learning program administrator.
Designed as a festive, family gathering, STEAM-a-Palooza will feature food booths, bands, a book fair, and cultural dance presentations. STEAM-related activities will be highlighted in a science fair, solar cup sprint, boat races, a Makerspace highlighting innovation, drone displays, and an art exhibition. Also on tap are student TED Talks and entries from the upcoming AUHSD Student Film Festival. Even “tamer” disciplines such as math and social science/English will have the opportunity to be highlighted.
Magnolia is enthusiastic about hosting the event, said Principal Daphne Hammer.
“It will give our campus a chance to put our best foot forward in support of innovation and creativity,” she said.
STEAM-A-Palooza is being held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the campus at 2450 West Ball Road, Anaheim, 92804. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Katella High School has a new look and everyone is noticing. We share with you OC Register article that highlights the new changes.
A few of those changes are:
* 1.9-acre drought-tolerant botanical garden
* The garden has a landscape element called bioswale that collects stormwater and filters pollutants out of the water.
* Olive trees that dot a garden in the middle of the campus
* A greenhouse is in the works that will allow students a hands-on experience.
* The project replaced cracked and worn out asphalt with new concrete surfaces that allow water to permeate into the ground, instead of running off into drains, district officials said.
