ALIKE SHORT FILM
Modern society tells us to do well in school, work as hard as we can, and eventually teach our kids to do the same. It’s an endless cycle that doesn’t exactly leave much room for creativity. This short film is encouraging people to look at things differently, and is striking a cord.
Alike, a Pixar-like affair by Madrid-based animators Daniel Martínez Lara and Rafa Cano Méndez, is a 7-minute lesson on what happens to your life when creativity is drowned out by the daily grind. It’s also about parenthood, and the importance of letting kids to forge their own journeys. The critically-acclaimed short was made entirely with Blender, an open-source 3D rendering program, and is dedicated “to our families, for helping us not to lose our colour.”
As Canadian journalist Graydon Carter once said, “it’s a rare moment when we take a break from the tribulations of the daily rat race to reflect on assumptions and values that we casually accept as gospel.” Take one of these moments for yourself, and give Alike a go.

their own device. Our recommendation is a Chromebook or a laptop.
Amazon has great deals on Chromebooks for the month of December. We recommend not to spend over $200.00 for a Chromebook.
Our current Chromebooks were purchased expressly for testing (all grades in the charter) however, we have been blessed to be able to hold onto the ones we have, but we are now moving into a Chromebook reserve status. Please speak with your supervising teacher about your options.

THE INAUGURATION TRIP 2017
SLV High School students and Coast Redwood High School students with Social Studies teacher, Cindy Martinez, met with our new US Senator from California, Kamala Harris, while on their trip to Washington, D.C. last month. During their visit, students were able to tour the Capitol and attend both the Presidential Inauguration and the Women’s March last weekend. It was a great opportunity and an amazing time for our students.
Needed: Several parents to sit on our CRHS Parent Advisory Committee ~
We are seeking several parent volunteers to meet (1 hour/1x month) on our Parent Advisory Site Committee. This year is particularly important as we conclude our WASC accreditation steps. Your guidance and input is very important to us. Please email Rhonda Schlosser for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
As we gear up this week, the sniffles and sneezes are guaranteed to start. How can you help? Teachers could use some supplies in their rooms to fight the good fight. If you can donate Kleenex, Wipes, or Hand Sanitizer, we would greatly appreciate it. Anything you can bring may be dropped off in your child's classroom. Thank you!
We encourage students to drink lots of water while at school. The teachers have water coolers in their classroom available for students to get the occasional cup of water and our teachers would appreciate donations of gallon containers of water filled at a water station or at the Scotts Valley Water Store. Small size works well.
We also strongly encourage our students to bring their own water bottle container, but please put a name or initials on the water bottle. We end up throwing away many containers each semester!
NEW COLLEGE UPDATES
Earlier submission of FAFSA!
Students attending college after July 1, 2017 will be able to file a FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016 rather than on January 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
Students will also report income information from an earlier tax year.
For example, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information if they are attending college from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018

New - SLVUSD Emergency Information Web Page
There is a new webpage from the SLV District Office for parents and students to go to for information during an emergency situation at school or in our valley.
The page is filled with information and instructions in case of emergency. In the event of an actual emergency, this page is where the district office will post updates on what is happening. In an emergency, this is the place to go online for facts and updates. Hopefully, this will allow parents and students to be informed and to remain as calm as possible.
