Boise High Insights

4th Quarter Newsletter - April 2017

From Our Fearless Leader - Robb Thompson

May 5, 2017

Dear Boise Braves:

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying a taste of the summer weather that we have enjoyed the last few days. Although we still have a month remaining until the last day of school, the 2016-17 school year is inevitably nearing its end. Our seniors have just ten days with us now, and as they should be, their thoughts are turning towards their future plans and adventures. Our sophomores and juniors are also making plans for summer work and fun; looking toward what comes next for them at Boise High School. The Faculty and Staff are working hard to finish the school year strong, but they too are taking time to reflect, learn and plan in preparation for 2017-2018 school year. As educators we commit ourselves to this annual cycle of preparation, emotion, and the joy of watching our charges learn, grow and eventually leave. Each year brings new excitement, familiar routines, and the realization that there is a distinct beginning and a definite end.

As we pause to wish our seniors well as they head off to the next phase, we’re welcoming our incoming sophomores; and as we say good-bye to colleagues whose distinguished careers at Boise High draw to a close, we meet new teachers who are excited to have the privilege and opportunity for a career at Boise High. We honor the following Boise High Faculty members who are embarking on a different phase in the life; Court Hanson (College and Career Counselor), who is retiring after many years spent working with our most valued resource, the students of Boise High. Additionally, we bid farewell to Cathy Doherty (School Psychologist), who is taking her talents to other schools in the Boise School District. To Court and Cathy we say good luck and thank you so much for your service and tireless example of what it means to be an educator. You will be greatly and sincerely missed.

Our spring sports are all just winding down and we’re hopeful for a strong representation at the upcoming district and state tournaments. We are currently enjoying the magic of the Once Acts, presented by the Washington Street Players. Our music programs are all preparing for their final concerts of the school year, at which they will honor the seniors one last time. Monday (May 1st) night senior art students displayed their work at our Annual Art Show. So far our National Merit Scholars, Rotary Century Scholars and Mayors’ Award recipients have been honored, and the recipients of all of the Boise High Memorial Scholarships will be acknowledged at a reception on May 8th. Our second annual Heart of the Brave Assembly, honoring many students for outstanding achievements in academics, service, and character was held on April 28th and was very well received by the students, faculty and all in attendance. And our Prom, held last Saturday at the Boise Depot was a joyous occasion and successful event for all who attended (700 students and guests).

In addition to a lot of activities, this is the time of year with a lot of tests. We completed another very successful SAT day in which we tested over 510 juniors. Sophomores have just completed their ISAT and SBAC testing. Right now the students in Advanced Placement classes are taking their exams, undoubtedly with a great deal of success. This year 751 Boise High students are in the process of taking 1,686 Advanced Placement exams, which will be instrumental in attaining another high ranking by the Washington Post. We have just received recognition from our Superintendent, Dr. Coberly, that Boise High has been ranked 613 of 30,000 schools in the nation. We appreciate the hard work of our staff to encourage students to take challenging classes and to support them in their efforts. We are also quite busy preparing for construction with the remodel of our 1936 gymnasium and our performing arts center, which is set to begin the first week of June. Thanks to all who voted and worked so hard on the School Bond Election Issue in March!

With graduation less than a month away, this will be a frenzied and emotion filled time for our seniors. We will send them off with a beautiful ceremony that we hope they will remember warmly for the rest of their lives. We must count on the cooperation of family members to make sure that the ceremony is equally memorable for each and every one of our seniors. For that reason, we ask you please to express your joy in ways that do not keep other families from expressing theirs. Each student is on the stage for a matter of seconds, so please let each family have the opportunity to hear their senior’s name and to watch their graduate receive the well-earned diploma.

On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I would like to thank our Brave Parents who have provided tremendous support throughout the year, including the wonderful teacher appreciation lunch yesterday. And to all parents and families who do so much for the students and staff of Boise High; thank you as well. As I draw near the close of my second year as principal of this incredible place, I swell with pride and realize just how fortunate and honored I am to be one small part of the educational experience of so many exceptional people. Have a wonderful summer, and we look forward to seeing many of you in August.


Respectfully –

Robert Thompson

Every day is a great day to be a Brave…….

Shout out to Charles Demaria & Jacey Adams for the design and logo for this years summit t-shirt!

BE THE CHANGE - Summit 2017!

The 2017 Boise High Summit carried the theme "Be the Change". The summit culminated student project-based learning in a day of learning in action, with more than 70 student presentations, more than 20 student-led workshops.


This year's keynote speaker was Asmaa Albukaie, Idaho's first Syrian refugee, mother of a fellow Brave and employee at the Agency for New Americans. What a fascinating story of true compassion and heart, and what a privilege it was to have her address our students!


The National Guard treated us with a tank and helicopter and the Micron STEMBusUSA.org bus was on Campus for us to discover!


Our Boise High students' intellectual rigor, passion and community was on full display!


*We would like to publicly thank Amber Tetrick and our Boise Brave AVID students who made this summit such a huge success!

BOISE HIGH IS THE CHANGE with student lead and project based teaching. Way to go Braves!

STUDENT RECOGNITION

NATIONAL HISPANIC RECOGNITION PROGRAM

Boise High Congratulates three seniors who are our

2017 scholars!

Vera Gaddi, Nathaniel Isbell and Danya Torp


These students applied as Juniors and their nationality is Hispanic/Latin, took the PSAT/NMSQT, and were invited to apply for academic recognition as part of the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP).

To be eligible, they must be at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino. Hispanic/Latino is an ethnic category, not a racial category, and can be of any race.

They must have ancestors from at least one of these countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay, or Venezuela.

Every year, the NHRP recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the test.

Recognized students are from the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Mariana Islands, and the Marshall Islands, as well as other students attending schools abroad. Approximately 200 of the top-scoring PAA™ students from Puerto Rico are also included.

Presidential Scholar Semi-Finalist!

Senior Elizabeth Lee



SIX NAMED PRESIDENTIAL SCHOLARS SEMIFINALISTS

(BOISE) – Six Idaho students have been selected as semifinalists for the U.S. Presidential Scholars program, including two brothers from Boise.


The prestigious program was created in 1964 to “recognize and honor some of our nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors,” according to a prepared statement from the program, which added that the students have “demonstrated scholarship, leadership, artistic excellence and selfless service to others.”

The 723 semi-finalists announced this week come from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and U.S. territories and possessions. They were selected from an initial set of 5,100 nominees from the 3.5 million eligible graduating seniors this year. Each state normally has two academic finalists named, a boy and a girl, both of whom must be U.S. citizens. It addition, the Commission on Presidential Scholars may select finalists in the fields of the arts, and career-technical education. A total of up to 161 students may receive the Presidential Scholars honor, which is a recognition program, not a scholarship program.


The finalists will be selected in May and invited to an all-expense-paid trip to the National Recognition Program in June in Washington, D.C. They will be awarded their Presidential Scholars Medallion during a ceremony at the White House.

Idaho’s semifinalists are:

· Stephen Casper of Skyline High School in Idaho Falls.

· Elizabeth S. Lee of Boise High School in Boise.

· Kathy M. Min of Centennial High School in Boise.

· Ellie K. Van De Graff of Capital High School in Boise. She lives in Eagle.

· Andrew and Henry Zhang of Capital High School in Boise.

NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing

The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing (AiC) honors high school women who are active and interested in computing and technology, and encourages them to pursue their passions. The multi-tiered structure includes recognition at the national and local levels, serving all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and all U.S. overseas military bases.

National Exchange Club's ACE Award Recipient!

CONGRATULATIONS to senior Daniel Ngirabakunzi for receiving the ACE Award -


The National Exchange Club's A.C.E. (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence) Award recognizes high school students who have had to overcome great physical, emotional, or social obstacles and are now eligible for high school graduation. This is a positive program with two key objectives: it helps encourage students to overcome their hardships and get back on track toward a high school diploma; and it recognizes those students who are often overlooked for their accomplishments. This special recognition serves as a powerful example to all students that hard work and perseverance are rewarded.

MAYORS AWARD!!

Seniors Jocelyn Barrett & Isabel Rodriguez are recipients of the 2017 Mayors Award....this award is given to students who demonstrate tremendous character by rising above hardships, serving their communities and consistently exhibiting kindness and consideration for others.

Dear Boise High School parents:

Get excited, next year Boise High School is participating in a dynamic, hands-on, civic education program for students in Washington, DC! As educators, we are always looking for new and interesting ways to provide extra challenges and opportunities to enhance your students’ educational experience. We strongly believe that Close Up does just that and will provide a learning experience of a lifetime!


Close Up’s programs are designed to give students direct opportunities to interact with government and history in Washington, DC, while exploring the links between history and the rights and responsibilities of citizens today. Students benefit from Close Up’s robust curriculum and spend time interacting with their peers from across the country as they visit DC’s famous sites including: Capitol Hill, the National Archives, Smithsonian Museums, Arlington Cemetery, and much more. This is sure to be a fun and exciting experience that will provide lifelong memories for our students.


To learn more about the trip, Close Up will be holding informational meetings on Thursday, May 4th starting at 6:00 pm at Boise High School in room 507. At this meeting we will discuss cost, trip dates, fundraising, and other program logistics. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please feel free to contact me.

BOISE HIGH SCIENCE STUDENTS ROCK!!

BOISE - A group of Boise High School students has won the Western Idaho Regional Science Bowl. See Channel 7 coverage

A total of 23 teams took part in the competition in Boise Monday.

The teams are asked a series of questions in a bracket-style tournament.

The event encourages student interest in science, technology, engineering and math subjects.

"I think for the students to be able to compete in an academic competition is really different and unique,” said Kami Faylor with the Micron Foundation. “It really helps them see that there is value to that, and to know that they have a future in science, and they can have a future in academics."

The winning team gets an all-expenses paid trip to the National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C. on April 27-May 1.
