  • The Certificated Golden Apple Award Goes to Mills High's Joe Hudelson

    Joe Hudelson began working at Mills High School in Fall 2017 as an English teacher and is already receiving appreciation from his coworkers and students! Teacher Patricia Jackson nominated Joe because when Patricia approached him to help in the Mills Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Drama production as a possible producer role, Joe readily agreed. And when the director had to step aside from the enormous task of directing the Fall show, Joe once again tackled the challenge and stepped up to cover that assignment in order to ensure that the students would be able to complete the Fall production. Mills Principal Pam Duszynski adds, "Joe jumped on board the Viking ship and has quickly became an integral part of the school community." Thank you, Joe, for being an awesome teacher and a great asset to Mills High School!

  • The Classified Golden Apple Award Goes to Capuchino's Mario Ellis!

    Mario Ellis, Capuchino High's Technology Support Specialist II, won this month's Classified Golden Apple! Nominated by Capuchino High School (CHS) teachers Erik Olsen, Daniella Quinones, Kristen Tucker and Rita Grover-Sidhu, Mario is described as "Super Mario" because he truly has super powers to get the job done quickly and efficiently! Whether it's re-imaging a whole set of computers or solving a minor software glitch, Mario has the knowledge and expertise to get the job done quickly. Erik Olsen states, "Despite a humongous workload and keeping all the devices on campus in working order, he is so timely in his help that I wonder if he has a secret twin." Daniella Quinones is also thankful for having Mario around. When she's in a panic that her students can't access her lesson plan on the computer, she emails Mario with the subject "HELP!" and within minutes, she always gets Mario's response indicating that he's on my way. Sure enough, Mario shows up at her classroom door ready to save the lesson. Thank you, Mario, for being a helpful, positive, and all around awesome employee! You deserve the Golden Apple and all the praise you have received!

  • Learn About Our Mental Health Program

    According to the latest research, one in five students living in the U.S. demonstrates signs or symptoms of a mental health disorder: anxiety, depression, trauma, etc. However the vast majority – nearly 80 percent – of students who need mental health services will not receive them. The San Mateo Union High School District has partnered with the Peninsula Health Care District and Stanford University to implement an expanded mental health program. Each school has at least two Wellness Counselors to provide counseling, consultation, professional development, parent support and crisis intervention for all students on site. Additionally, three Health and Wellness Coordinators serve two high schools each, providing an additional level of support, including supervision for the Wellness Counselors, participation on the site leadership teams and building capacity for various levels and types of interventions. Throughout the school year, we will continue to advance and improve this initiative as we build our capacity to address student mental health needs more effectively and efficiently. Your children's well being is of the utmost importance to us and we are dedicated to meeting their needs.
