California Highway Patrol Officers Speak to Student at Opportunity Fair
Recently, hundreds of Capuchino students had the chance to explore volunteer options, summer enrichment programs, employment opportunities, internships and trade opportunities at the 2017 Opportunity Fair. The Boys & Girls Club Mid-Peninsula, Cañada College, Skyline College, the City of Millbrae, the City of San Bruno, the San Bruno Police Department, UC Berkeley, Marshall Realty, and the United Parcel Service (UPS) (just to name a few!) came out to talk to students. We thank the following sponsors for making this day possible: Caccia Plumbing, Sammut Family Foundation, Grand Leader Market and Deli and Big 5 Sporting Goods.


iStock Image of a Board MeetingSMUHSD’s Board of Trustees invites you to its Thursday, February 23, 2017 regular meeting. At this meeting, staff will provide a presentation on the alternative programs offered to district students, as well as propose a new program to serve the needs of older high school students who come to the district in need of significant English language skills and have few, if any, credits. Staff will also present a facility capacity study that looks to inform ways to ensure that the District has sufficient classroom capacity in light of another enrollment spike of 600 students anticipated by 2022, primarily in the southern part of the district. The public meeting will take place at the San Mateo Adult School, 789 E Poplar Ave., San Mateo starting at 7pm. Click HERE to see the agenda.


Jose Luis Vasquez PalaciosJose Luis started as a hungry student in low-beginning ESL classes in 2008 and is now a cum laude graduate of CSM, getting to ready to start SFSU in the Fall.  He majored in Digital Media and TV Production at CSM.  He is the producer of the television program, "What's Up, San Mateo" at KCSM and produces online videos for classes at CSM. He attended SMAS for four years, working his way up to the advanced level, taking every opportunity to learn and grow, not just as a ESL student, but as a community member.   He credits his mom and San Mateo Adult School for his success.  His mom taught him to be open-minded, independent, and ready to learn from others.  About SMAS, he says, "I will always be thankful to all SMAS staff for being there for me and making every school day special. My achievements are theirs, too, because they are my road trip partners." As a journalist, Jose Luis hopes to convey that we all have dreams and goals and all of them are possible if we set up a plan. "It’s not just having a dream.  It’s about how we start."
