Cesar Chávez, Pablo Casals, Joan Báez, Antonia Coello Novello, Henry Cisneros, José Carreras, Pele, Ellen Ochoa, Catherine Davalos Ortega or Sonia Sotomayor?  The answers are out there. Check out the resources on your computer. Learn about the contributions of these people and many other notable Hispanics. Look around your community and state. Do you see signs, billboards or advertising in Spanish?? Do you recognize words like patio, plaza, and names like Paseo Padre, Cabrillo, Portola, and Gibraltar? Cities such as San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles and many other are words and phrases that come to us from the Spanish language. Look and listen to the world around you. You will be surprised to see the impact of Spanish in Fremont and beyond.  We hope that you have enjoyed these facts about Hispanic Heritage month. Remember that there are many contributors from Spain and all of the Central and South American countries not mentioned here. In addition, some of the countries of the Caribbean are Hispanic too. Raise your awareness of all cultural contributions by Hispanics to help you become aware of the influence of Hispanic culture and the Spanish Language in our world. Gracias!

Welcome back to school!  Ms. Renoir and I are looking to have an excellent school year and are excited to work with the great group of students we have here at Thornton. My schedule this year is again split between Horner and Thornton. For the first semester, I will be at Thornton on Mondays and Tuesdays and every other Wednesday. During the second semester, I will be here  Thursdays and Fridays and continue the every other Wednesday schedule.

 

Ms. Renoir and I are delighted to be able to continue our work helping students succeed at the junior high level and preparing them for success in high school and beyond.

In these first few weeks of school, we have had the chance to visit classrooms, and we are very impressed with the level of student engagement.

 

When you have an opportunity, we ask that you please review with your child the rules and student responsibilities in the student planner so we are all on the same page when it comes to what is expected at Thornton.

 

Following are some general reminders:

  • Please do not drop off or pick up students on Thornton Ave or directly in the parking lots. Please use the pick up drop off loop instead, as it is safer for pedestrians and vehicles. 
  • It is vital that students remember to cross the street in a safe manner: use crosswalks, don't jaywalk, don't begin to cross when you cannot finish crossing safely in the amount of time remaining.
  • Once students leave school, they may not return to campus without a parent. This means students cannot go across the street after school and then return to campus for a ride or to watch a game or go to a dance. 
  • Students are not allowed to be on other schools' campuses before 4pm without a parent accompanying them, and the student and parent must check in at the school office for a visitor pass. 
  • Students who ride a bike or skateboard to or from school must wear a helmet. It is the law.
  • Cell phones must be turned off and put away when students arrive to the campus. They may be turned on and used after the end of the school day. The same applies to school dances--they must be off and put away during the dance and can be used when it is over. 
  • We have homework club that is supervised by a credentialed teacher every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 2:40-3:40 in room 39.
  • The library is open from 7:30am-3:30pm on most school days. 

We are really looking forward to another fabulous year with such amazing staff and students! Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns; we have an open door policy.

 

 

--Mrs. Watson-Bird and Ms. Renoir

  • Hoops for Heart Facts of the Day:

    • When you go for a checkup, your doctor uses a stethoscope to listen carefully to your heart. A healthy heart makes a lub-dub sound with each beat. This sound comes from the valves shutting on the blood inside the heart.

    • Even though your heart is inside you, there is a cool way to know it's working from the outside. It's your pulse. You can find your pulse by lightly pressing on the skin anywhere there's a large artery running just beneath your skin. Two good places to find it are on the side of your neck and the inside of your wrist, just below the thumb.

 

  • Staff and students! We will be meeting out on the soccer fields to spell out # DRUG FREE during home room today.  Find your home room number posted on the field and fill in the white lines.

    • You probably guessed that the blood just doesn't slosh around your body once it leaves the heart. It moves through many tubes called arteries and veins, which together are called blood vessels.

    • The movement of the blood through the heart and around the body is called circulation, and your heart is really good at it — it takes less than 60 seconds to pump blood to every cell in your body.

 

  • Attention 8th graders:  If you are interested in trying out for the American High School Cheer team please look for the cheerleaders during lunch today.  They will be here passing out Tryout Packets and answering questions.

  • Women’s History Month in the United States grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history and society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa.

A few years later, the idea had caught on within communities, school districts and organizations across the country. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.

  • Veterans Day is celebrated each year on November 11th.  This year’s holiday will be observed tomorrow.  Veterans Day honors all of the outstanding men and women who are serving or who have served in the U.S. military throughout our nation’s history. Be sure to take some time this weekend to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for us all.

 

  • "Sikhism is an independent and monotheistic religion. It is not a blend of Hinduism and Islam as some people may call it. It has its own set of beliefs, practices and customs. Talk to the Sikh students at your school and ask them about the festivals of Vaisakhi and Diwali."

 

  • "Project Venture will be meeting today after school at 1:00 PM. There will not be a meeting next week but our club will reconvene November 30th at our usual time. We hope to see you there!"
