    Fun Fridays at LAE

    The playground at LAE is always a fun place to be but this year the playground staff have stepped it up with Fun Fridays. As a reward for positive behavior, at the end of the week, staff brings out music at lunchtime on the grass. Hula hoops, jump ropes, bowling and even bubbles and other fun games are included. The kids and staff can dance and sing to their favorites. The kids never get tired of Baby Shark, Frozen, YMCA and the new favorite Old Town Road.

    “It is a great way to reward our students at the end of the week for working hard, being safe, responsible and respectful. It just makes for a fun time and everyone looks forward to it,” said Principal Veronica McGilvery.

    Third graders Charlotte and Emma said they look forward to Fridays. They want to dance, request their favorite songs and have fun with friends.

    Fun Fridays are here to stay at LAE! Come out and dance with us!

    Rim of the World Unified has three priorities

    1. Increase student learning and support professional development.

    2. Facilitate safe and positive school climate.

    3. Engage families and the community.

    On Friday, November 1st our team focused on priorities 1 and 2 during the all staff Professional Development Day. Teachers and administrators came together to learn about how intentional social, emotional, and academic learning can boost achievement, behavior and climate. Skills such as self-management, self-awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision making, and social awareness are vital life skills that foster success. One of the quotes from the day, “How do you change the world? One room at a time, which room? The one you’re in! Be the change you wish to see in the world”. Happy Veteran’s Day to ALL who have served our country.

  • ROWUSD would like to provide information about current matters facing our district, we felt it important to create a forum where community members can ask questions and give their insights. Accordingly, we would like to introduce our Time with Trustee’s Community Meetings. These meetings will be informal gatherings around the mountain where school board members will be present. Our School Board values the opinions and ideas of our community members; students, parents, teachers, employees, volunteers, business owners, and residents and welcomes you to attend.

    Last week was “College Week” at Rim High School and we began with a Scot’s University night for parents and students focusing on financial aid for college using the FAFSA, we held a “College Wear Wednesday” spirit day, held the PSAT and ASVAB assessments for post-secondary entrance, and ended with teachers sharing their college journey with each of their classes. We hope this college focus had most of our students thinking about life after high school.

    Fall sports are wrapping up their regular seasons. Last night, our Volleyball team hosted Redlands High School and defeated them in the first round of CIF 3-1, and they will be headed to 2nd round at Winward High School this Saturday, October 26th at 6 pm. Girls Tennis have finished 2nd in the league and will have League Finals at San Gorgonio High School next week. Cross Country will head to Mt. Sac. today for an invitational, and Football will head to Rialto tonight.

    Deborah Messina, Specialist in Child Welfare and Attendance, is working closely with the Mountain Homeless Coalition and the Girl Scouts to provide snacks and Thanksgiving meal bags to our families. Each meal bag will have about 10 items in it to assist families over the Holiday. We are excited to give back to a few of our families in this way.

    Also, attached is a flyer with the Spring semester line-up of Valley College course offerings at Rim High School. These courses start in mid-January and are open to anyone in the community.

    In addition, the flyer has information regarding the Super Saturday (November 16th) in the library at Rim High School. On that day, Valley College counselors, admissions and financial aid staff will be at Rim High School to assist people in registering with Valley College, preparing an academic plan and applying for financial aid.

    In efforts to get the word out to our communities that Valley College courses are now offered on Rim High School’s campus, please share this flyer and information.

  • Good evening,

    Southern California Edison is exploring options for a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff of electrical circuits in High Fire Risk Areas serving portions of some cities and unincorporated areas in San Bernardino County as early as October 9. The Rim of the World Unified School District is prepared to continue providing student instruction and meals in the event of a power outage to maintain state required instructional minutes. The district will notify parents, students, and staff immediately if the power outages present unsafe conditions that may result in school closure.

    Parents and their students gathered at MPH to learn about a great virtual tutoring tool called Grade Slam. Grade Slams mission is to deliver educational equity through personalized learning. The program provides 24 hour 7-days a week online tutoring, in all subjects, delivered by certified teachers. Tutors use techniques to help kids’ problem solve and don’t just give them the answers in order to facilitate learning. The program is available on any electronic device. For more information call MPH or MHS to learn how your child can access this resource. (Currently available to students at MPH and MHS only)

    Lake Arrowhead Elementary held our first Saturday School of the year on September 21st! The learning experiences were: Erosion, Composing and filming Green Screen iMovies, and creating puppets for retelling Fairytale literature. Every month students will have an opportunity to make up a previous absence by attending one of our Saturday School sessions. Not only does this support student attendance, it assists with some funding recovered which in turn can support programs and services for students. Permission slips are sent home monthly to all students, and future dates may be found on our school website.

    District officials at Rim of the World Unified School District met with officers from San Bernardino County Fire, Office of Emergency Services. The district is participating in their flag notification system at our sites which means that in the event of an emergency a green or red flag can be hung on a flag pole to show first responders the level of distress at a school site. It is a quick, low tech system that needs no bandwidth or electricity during a large emergency situation. The officers also recommended that everyone in the community download the READY SB County Preparedness App on their mobile devices. It is available in both the App Store or Google Play. Please take the time to get to know the emergency routes in our area. This picture shows both Area 1 and Area 2 routes. It is important that you and your family know what to do in the event of an earthquake as well. You can find on the district website this article, the maps and tips for earthquake preparedness.

    We held our annual College and Career Fair this past Wednesday in the Wilkins Gym with over 25 booths set up for students to inquire about schools and careers. There were representatives from Crafton Hills and CSUSB, and military, fire, nurses, law enforcement, and even movie makeup! In the PAC, we had representatives from the fields of corrections, FBI, and psychology, and they were interviewed in front of the students. We hope this gave many students a sense of direction and purpose after graduating.

    This morning was the Senior Sunrise for the Class of 2020, as the students bundled together on the front lawn at 6:00 am to see the sunrise. This was the first all senior class activity and parents and staff were there serving coffee, donuts, and breakfast burritos, and a great time was had by all, despite the cool morning windchill!

    The district has completed its first snack and school supply drive of the year. School supplies include items such as paper, folders, pencils, highlighters, pens and more. Non-perishable and canned food items are also included. The focus of the event is help students whose families may not have the means to provide such supplies.

    In efforts to increase the safety of our students and staff, the District recently entered into an agreement with Hesperia Unified School District for Sheltering and Mass Care Facilities to establish shelter locations for our district. In the event of an evacuation during school hours facilities will be available as shelters for students and staff. We want to thank Hesperia Unified along with Risk Management staff who worked together to establish this option for our district.

    LAE received a special gift from our PTA--freshening up the main entrance to our school! Our front windows received a security film displaying our school colors and mascot! This prevents visibility to inside our campus but allows visibility out. Additionally, volunteers of PTA refreshed our painted paw prints throughout every hallway floor, as well as repainted our main front hallway walls with a new mountain graphic motif. LAE is truly appreciative of the volunteers who helped to further beautify and secure our facility.

    Rim Teachers came together on August 9th to learn about strategies they can use to support their students learning. A Professional Development survey was sent out in the Spring of the 2018-19 school year to get suggestions for topics of interest. The top 3 were the focus of the workshops on August 9th. Teachers participated in three one-hour sessions to learn more about: Google Classroom, Social-Emotional Learning, and Student Engagement and Participation Strategies. We are excited about increasing student learning and supporting professional development.

    One of our top priorities for our Special Education Staff – certificated and classified alike, is to acquire top-level training and professional development for all.  Teachers and paraprofessionals will have opportunities throughout the school year to acquire such training.  This week, Director of Special Services Derek Swem earned a certificate in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) through East Valley SELPA.  Through the training, he learned different methods for valuable data collecting and resources to assist special education teachers in their classrooms.  Next week, three staff members continue their training to be Professional Crisis Management (PCMA) trainers for our school district.  We feel that it is the utmost importance in acquiring updated knowledge of methods and practices to help our students.

    MPH welcomed our 6th-grade students for the 2019-2020 school year with a 6th-grade welcome assembly hosted by our 6th-grade teachers. Students received information regarding all things MPH and 6th grade, followed by a tour of the campus. At the conclusion of the first week of school 6th-grade students shared the following quotes:

    “I was really scared but then when I came it was fine. I saw my friends. I love changing classes. I love meeting new friends.” - M. Groff“

    I love the classes and all of the work and the sense of community and family up here! I love Mrs. Marinaro so much and I can really connect with here because I am often the kind of outsider person because I am shy. Mrs. Marinaro really encourages me and helps me be my best! Thank you, Mrs. Marinaro!” – A. Murphy

    “So far at MPH, I love it here. The staff is so friendly and so are the students. I heard that there were major bullying problems but that is not true at all. Everything and everyone is so positive. I love seeing everyone I know and all of the new people. I have no idea where the kids from last year got the rumors but they are not true.” – L. Schroeder

    During the 2018–2019 school year, the DonorsChoose.org community of donors (individual citizens, philanthropic, and corporate) donated $11,570 towards new classroom resources for Rim of the World Unified School District. This supported 15 teachers across the district.

    As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, DonorsChoose.org is free for districts and schools to use and ships materials, not cash, to classrooms. We provide administrators like you with full transparency and oversight into what’s been donated. 

    David Nygren, Principal, Rim of the World High School

    We started our year with our Freshmen Link Crew Assembly on Monday before the first day of school with over 200 freshmen showing up to meet with their junior and senior Link Crew leaders to do some team building activities in small groups.  This was a great event which allows freshmen more familiar with the school, get their schedules, develop some class pride, and to become familiar with some students and staff who can help them on campus!

    Next Tuesday we will begin classes with San Bernardino Valley College teaching college courses here at the high school.  We are very excited about this partnership and have many students signed up to take courses on the mountain either with teachers in person or distance learning.
