Together with our community, WE are a Championship Team! MUSD has seen many shining moments in the last half of 2017: Central Coast Section (CCS) MHS Recognition for Top Sportsmanship; Bay Area News Group Student Player of the Year; Santa Clara County Teacher of the Year and Tech Teacher of the Year; CSEA State Area Director; ACSA Region 8 President; CCS Baseball Coach of the Year; MHS Sophomore Speech and Debate Champions (who will be going to the finals in Kentucky); Rancho Girls’ Basketball Team; MHS Girls Volleyball; Milpitas Extreme Robotics #0669; Santa Clara County and State Honor Band Musicians; Science Olympiads; and MHS Football—just to name a few.
Our students continue to flourish in a rich learning environment enhanced by our community partnerships. The Milpitas Community Advisory Commission, for example, recognizes the impact our schools have in Milpitas, and is sponsoring an Educational Showcase on Saturday, Jan. 27 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at Curtner Elementary. Teachers, parents, administrators, support staff, and students will be present throughout the morning to share our exemplary programs with our neighbors and future MUSD parents. Our Milpitas Rotary will be sponsoring a speech contest for our high school students later this month, and our Milpitas Kiwanis will again host our annual MUSD Crab Feed & Auction on Friday, Feb. 9 to support our students in need with new school clothes and scholarships.
The community support doesn’t stop at the front door. We have many partnerships that support our teachers and students in the classroom. KLA Tencor brings monthly science lessons to Rose. Cal Hills students learn about medical technology at Cordis. The Milpitas Library co-hosts bi-monthly Love 4 Literacy events for our families at Rose and Randall. And San Jose City College is opening the world of college to our high school and adult learners! (Learn more at our joint MUSD SJECCD Board meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 23 at 6:00 p.m. at the SJCC Extension on Escuela Pkwy.)
You, too, can be a part of our ongoing Celebration of Champions. You’re invited to the MHS Football State Championship Bash this Saturday, Jan. 20 at 12:00 p.m. on the MHS football field.
