CREW/ADVISORY Announcements 9-9-20
Teacher and Crew Leaders: Discussion prompt: (Teachers/Leaders: this is an optional prompt. Students are aware of these posts and have shared they are upset about it. Building off our circle work in week one, please discuss if you feel comfortable- use your agreements!! You may need to help some students understand what is anti-semitism. Plan a longer CREW if you want to hold this discussion)
Last week, Redwood High School dealt with a series of antisemitic and racist social media posts that upset the community greatly. If you see posts from a friend with racist and/or antisemitic language, how would you handle it?

CREW/ADVISORY Announcements 9-2-20
Teacher and Crew Leaders: Discussion Prompt
Rather than a discussion, there are two big elections during CREW today. The first is to choose the four reps for the DLC and the second one is to pick a Student Senate rep for your CREW. Please take both of these seriously.
DLC/Site Council Elections:
Student Candidate Statements found here
Student Election Form found here. Open during Crew only
The School Site Council or Drake Leadership Council (DLC) has four student representatives. This council meets monthly and deals with school improvement plans, school facilities and other issues related to school climate and culture. This team exists every year. This year, this is the team who will be considering the topic of the name change, developing the process and ultimately making a decision on what name to recommend to the superintendent and school board. Please read the statements and complete the google form. The election will only take place during CREW time until 10:10.
CREW/Advisory Student Senate Representatives:
Our Student Senate is an important part of our school government and student voice at school. This team will be discussing issues such as the name change, possible name suggestions, coming back to campus (hopefully!) and helping us develop a school-wide anti-racism plan. Every CREW has one representative and can also have a back-up if the main rep. is absent. Student Senate will meet monthly- or twice monthly during the Friday tutorial. Your CREW will now run an election for this position. Once decided, please complete this form with the name of your reps and their email addresses.
Back to School Night:
Tomorrow night is our virtual back-to school night. Please make sure your parents/guardians have your schedule to access all your classes. They also might need help finding all the right teachers. A link list is being sent home tomorrow. Thanks for helping them. Remember, the evening will go in order of Monday classes, starting with your 2nd period class. We appreciate it!
CREW/ADVISORY Announcements 8-26-20
Teachers and Crew Leaders: If you have time at the end of these announcements, here is a prompt you may ask and gather the questions. Please use the form below OR email the questions you gather from your CREW to Chad Stuart (firstname.lastname@example.org). Here is the FAQ from 2 weeks ago. We want this to be a discussion and let them hear each other's questions. Only provide the form AFTER you talk.
Prompt: After last week’s circle discussions, what questions do you have about the name change, process, and/or how we are facing racism at HS 1327. Please know that we will work on answering these questions for you all.
Please share this link/survey in your chat for students to complete AFTER your discussion if they have more questions: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfvTSYoZncW00VCV9y7pnZF9O5W5BGEYBhPnpJ78vm9DCv-Fw/viewform
What is CREW/Advisory??
This time is for our student leaders from ASB, SOAR, Peer Resource, and AVID 11/12 to share information and collect input from the students around topics that are important for students to have voice around. We also have the Student Senate that will be meeting this fall. Each Crew/Advisory will have a representative at the Student Senate to discuss important topics, such as our name change. We will be choosing our Student Senate reps next week in CREW. CREW/Advisory is a place for student voice. Let’s build on this and make it a real part of how we reimagine HS 1327.
Wellness Circle for Ms. Milstead:
In June, right after graduation, our school community lost a beloved teacher, Ms. Milstead. While some support was offered to students at that time, we recognize that grief is not always a linear progression and that this loss might be surfacing now in new ways as we return to classes.
Katrina Southard, Wellness Coordinator, will offer a virtual healing space during tutorial on Friday. All students are welcome to attend. If interested, please email Katrina: email@example.com and she will send you a zoom invite. If you’d prefer to engage in individual support, she can also connect you with one of our school therapists.
We are looking for four students to provide input on issues as they pertain to the HS 1327 school site by joining our site council/Drake Leadership Council or DLC. For the 2020-2021 school year, we will be addressing our school name and meeting virtually through Zoom. Student membership for four Student positions will be decided by an election process that will take place during Crew/Advisory next week on September 2nd . Interested students should apply by e-mailing a brief (2-3 sentences) statement of interest, including some biographical information as to what makes you a good candidate and your interest in the position, to Jolie Jacobs at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to apply is TOMORROW, August 27, 2020 at 3:00 pm. Our first meeting will be 9/9/20 and all the meeting dates are listed here. (from the homepage go to Community, then DLC - Drake Leadership Council)
District Racial Equity Task Force:
If you are interested in joining the TUHSD Racial Equity Task Force, please go to this link or see the homepage for the district. The term for the student representatives is one-year.
Do you have all your books and a school-issued Chromebook? If you still have not picked up your needed Books or Chromebook, please come to the Main Office between 2:30-4:00 pm, NO LATER than THIS FRIDAY (8/28)! Thank you.
