Two GGUSD Seniors Devote Part of Summer as Next-Generation Cancer Researchers

Congratulations to Garden Grove Unified School District seniors Jair Fabian of Bolsa Grande High School and Nancy Nguyen of Rancho Alamitos High School for being part of an elite group of 19 Orange County students who contributed to finding a cure for cancer by completing the six-week UC Irvine Cancer Research Institute Youth Science Fellows Program.
The aspiring scientists, selected from a field of 160 high school applicants, devoted six hours a day this summer in hands-on projects working side-by-side with UC Irvine faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and technicians in laboratories affiliated with the university’s Cancer Research Institute. The final presentations on their in-depth research took place August 7.

The participants in the Youth Science Fellows Program also attended weekly meetings for advice on careers and the college admissions process, with the overall goal of building a sustained pipeline for producing the next generation of cancer research.

Bolsa Wins Gold Ribbon Award

Bolsa Wins Gold Ribbon Award

We are proud to announce, Bolsa Grande High School (BGHS) is the recipient of the California Gold Ribbon Schools Award. The new award is in lieu of the California Distinguished Schools Program and recognizes middle and high schools that have impacted students’ lives by implementing an exemplary program. In 2009, 38% of students at BGHS were eligible to attend a four-year college. To address this disconnect between student’s A-G rates and the disproportionate number of students not being accepted to a 4-year college, BGHS created Senior College Focus. The fundamental core of the program is that every student understand all of their post-secondary options and take an active role in the college application process at the end of their senior year end up at the most competitive educational institution based on their ability to be successful. Through the efforts of teachers and staff, Senior College Focus has increased the number of students meeting A-G to 64% in 2014 with 77% accepted to a four-year college. According to State Superintendent of Public Education Tom Torlakson, “These schools are academically successful, vibrant, and innovative centers of learning and teaching. They provide great examples of the things educators are doing right - embracing rigorous academic standards, providing excellence and creativity in teaching, and creating a positive school climate.” For more information, please read the news release from the California Department of Education.

Strategic Plan and District Goals

Strategic Plan and District Goals

In an effort to continue to communicate our strategic plan and district goals, our ASB sponsored an Opportunities for Success Week. Each day centered around our three district goals, which focus on the development of academic and personal skills ultimately leading to student lifelong success. The week consisted of daily announcements, lunch time activities, campus wide posters, and culminated in a student created and published video (see link). The video delves into what lifelong success means to our Matadors. This is an exciting beginning to our ongoing conversations regarding our strategic plan for student success.
