The Whittier Union High School District kicked off the 2016-17 school year on Aug. 16, giving more than 2,800 members of the Class of 2020 a preview of what the next 720 days – or four years – of their high school careers will be like ahead of the first day of school.
Hundreds of Whittier community members on Aug. 12 converged on the California High School campus to celebrate the dedication and grand opening of Whittier Union’s second 7,000-seat District stadium – this one named in honor of visionary educational leader and former superintendent, Sandra Thorstenson.
La Serna High School sophomore Briana Chacon, a fast-rising, 14-year-old golfer, will compete in the 116th U.S. Women’s Amateur Golf Championship – the premier amateur tournament in the country. The tournament will run Aug. 1-7 at the Rolling Green Golf Course in Springfield, Pennsylvania.
La Serna High School will offer two new STEM classes this fall thanks to the lobbying efforts of Markie Wagner, a rising senior who is well on her way to launching her second smartphone app. This summer, two La Serna High teachers are receiving training to teach Intro to Engineering and Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science at Cal Poly Pomona through the Project Lead The Way program.
To ensure that special education students receive high-quality services closer to home, Whittier Union this summer launched the PRIDE Santa Fe program, which will offer specialized instruction to students with emotional challenges who would otherwise have to attend private facilities.
A drawing by a La Serna High School student will be on display in the U.S. Capitol for one year after taking the top prize in 38th District for the 2016 Congressional Art Competition, a national contest that recognizes and encourages artistic talent among high schoolers from across the country.
