Senior Send Off GoFundMe

We're up to $1,862.00! Thank you so much to all of our donors! We still have a way to go. Please continue to share this link to help reach our fundraising goal in order to provide a meaningful and personal gift to each student in the Silver Oak Senior Class of 2021.

The Class of 2021 never envisioned their senior year to take place online. We have worked so hard to connect with them and continue to make our community feel whole. We want to do something for them that is tangible, thoughtful and something they can take with them to remember their teachers and faculty.

Sexual Education for 10th and 12th Graders

Starting Wednesday April 14th through May 19th, sophomores and seniors through Wednesday advisory will be participating in comprehensive sexual health education provided by Planned Parenthood Mar Monte via live virtual webinar and self-guided learning through an online learning management system called Thinkific.

The California Healthy Youth Act requires that comprehensive sexual health education and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention education be taught to students at least once in middle school and once in high school, beginning no later than grade seven. Instruction and materials must be medically accurate, objective, age-appropriate and inclusive of all students, as defined by law. The law requires that instruction and materials must encourage students to communicate with parents, guardians or other trusted adults about human sexuality.

A brief pre/post assessment will be conducted at the beginning and end of the program. Questions will ask about sexual health and student confidence related to relationships and communication. All instructional materials and student assessment are available for review upon request. You may also request a copy of the California Healthy Youth Act (California Education Code sections 51930–51939) or visit

If you do not want your student to participate in comprehensive sexual health education, please contact your student’s advisor by 4/13/2021.
