Graduate Recognition Luncheon
The Homeless Education Program celebrated the class of 2014 for their diligence and pursuit of excellence. The Graduate Recognition Luncheon was a way of showing seniors that their achievement is both commendable and significant to our community. McKinney Vento eligible graduates were honored for reaching such an important milestone in their lives. The goal of the luncheon was to recognize graduates for their accomplishments and to encourage them to keep achieving academically.
The Graduate Recognition Luncheon featured speakers such as board members Monica Ratliff and Steve Zimmer, as well as Jessica Martinez who is one of the original members of Freedom Writers.  All graduates received gift bags and H.O.P.E Scholarship recipients were recognized. This event shined a much-needed light on the persistence and hard work put forth by graduates to earn their high school diploma despite the barriers they face. It is a motivation for all students within the district to strive to reach their academic potential.

              Pupil Services and Attendance Counselor Highlight

              Shining Examples of Great Attendance in Sun Valley

 Norm Wallace, PSA Counselor at Sun Valley Magnets MS highlighted their Perfect Attendance students with a Rays of Sunshine Bulletin Board.  The names of students with Perfect Attendance for the month of April are listed on the sun’s rays.  Monthly attendance recognitions like these have boosted Sun Valley’s overall attendance rate up by .6 % this year compared to last year.  That may not seem like much, however, Principal Robert Lee knows this adds up to 1,052 days of in-seat school attendance over last year.

Great job Norm! Thank you for your dedication to our students!

FOSTER CARE PROGRAM

FOSTER CARE MONTH CAMPAIGN

Each May, National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity to shine a light on the experiences of the more than 550,000 children and youth in the foster care system. The campaign raises awareness about the urgent needs of these young people and encourages citizens from every walk of life to get involved - as foster or adoptive parents, volunteers, mentors, teachers, employers, social workers or in other ways. In recognition, the Pupil Services Foster Care Program will be organizing the following events:

Backpack/School Supply Drive: For the whole month, bins will be placed on various floors at the LAUSD headquarters building at 333 S. Beaudry Ave, Los Angeles, to collect backpacks and school supplies for foster youth.

For more information on any of  activities taking place for Foster Care Awareness month, please call the Foster Care Program at (213) 241-3842.

                                            Student Spotlight!

                         Pupil Services, City Partnership Program

 Growing up, William C. explored parts of the world some of us have yet to see.  He has visited places such as Nevada, Florida, Pennsylvania, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Hawaii and Australia.  Although William recognizes he has been fortunate, his travels weren’t under positive circumstances.  

Throughout his life, William’s father has been incarcerated and continues to be away from his family.  What’s more, his mother also was incarcerated when William was 12 years old; consequently, leading to so much movement.  While William’s mother and father were incarcerated, both William and his brother moved around from family member to family member.  This is the sole reason why William never finished high school.  It appeared that every time he started a new school, just as he made new friends and adjusted, it was time to move again.  As PSA Counselors, it is known that when so much movement occurs, transcripts tend to get lost, sometimes they’re incomplete and sometimes students end up repeating courses. 

Nonetheless, William still wasn’t defeated.  Eventually, he was reunited with his mother and decided that it was time to get back on track.  William came into the YouthSource Center (YSC), Brotherhood Crusade a little over a year ago and enrolled in the WIA program.  He was set on getting his GED and also gaining employment.  Initially, William appeared to be motivated.  However, as time progressed, he started to engage in extracurricular activities that weren’t advantageous to him.   For an entire summer William disappeared from the YSC and returned in October. In October, he re-engaged in GED prep, re-took the two sections that he had previously failed and passed.  

It’s hard to say what happened, but PSA counselor, Ms. Betsy Lara strongly believes that William realized that he had the potential for more.  William returned as a different person.  He gave up his bad habits, acknowledging that they weren’t going to pay his bills or get him further in life.  

William took on responsibilities at the front desk answering phones. Initially, this was not a task he was willing to take on.  But now, William can handle the front desk all by himself and won’t hesitate in taking charge. Moreover, William has also been volunteering, for the last two months, at LAX’s IT Department.  He’s constantly networking, letting his colleagues know that he’s available to assist and is ready to take on any tasks that are given to him. 

William is a determined and successful young man who has a vision and is working towards more in life.  William has yet to determine his exact career path, but what’s important is that he’s learned the skills needed to be successful and self-sufficient.

Great job William! Thank you to our PSA Counselors for all of their hard work!

Graduation Promotion Counselor (GPC), Mr. Marquis Jones, began working with Jimmy at the end of 9th grade when he had failed all of his classes. Jimmy shared that his sister was terminally ill.  Eventually, he stopped attending school to help pay bills. With the ongoing help of the GPC, Mr. Jones, Jimmy attended adult school and enrolled in on-line classes.  As his sister’s health declined, he dropped Adult School. Eventually, Jimmy returned to Fremont High School, played basketball and passed his classes.  Last month, Jimmy earned his High School Diploma. Today he is working and enrolling in Santa Monica College. Great job Jimmy! 
Thank you Mr. Jones for all your hard work!
