LINK CREW is looking for a few good Tigers!!

"Link Crew is a Club at Valencia High School in which upperclassmen (juniors and seniors) are paired with freshmen. Your responsibility as a member of Link Crew will be to reach out, connect and befriend freshmen. You will need to make 5 - 10 cards and letters per event and you will need to attend ALL events outside of school hours (you will only get one exception). Events will include, but are not limited to, a May training day, an August training/freshman seminar day, early arrival to the first day of school, a football game tailgate, pictures with santa, and a cram session around finals time. Dates are TBD and events are subject to change. We are looking for outgoing and highly motivated students who will support and connect with younger students at VHS. If you cannot attend events or create cards/letters please do not apply. If you have any questions please visit Mrs. Bonet (rm 112), Miss Rizzo (rm 102) or Miss Thayer (rm 1116) or visit VHStigers.org for email contact.

To be an eligible Link Crew Leader you will need to speak with two teachers on the VHS campus who can act as your reference. These teachers will be contacted to ensure you are the best fit for Link Crew.

Expect to hear back from us by April 18th. Make sure to check your email around that time for your interview date and time."

Principal’s Message - January 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This school year Valencia chose ENGAGEMENT as our school wide focus. VHS is committed to making sure ALL students are ENGAGED in and out of the classroom. Our teachers understand that their students need to be actively engaged and energized every time they step in their classroom. They also know that in order for our students to fully participate in today’s global community they will need to be Creative, Critical Thinkers, Communicators, and Collaborators. I would like to take a moment to share some of the great things that happened at Valencia High School during the first four months of the school year.


Academics- I’m proud to announced that twelve (12) seniors qualified as Semifinalists in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program. Thirty-seven (37) additional students earned qualifying scores for the 2017 National Merit Commended Student Program and seven (7)  earned qualifying scores for the 2017 National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar.


Did you know Valencia High School is a P21 school? The Partnership for 21st Century Learning, has designated Valencia High School in Placentia, Calif., as an exemplar school for the 2016-2017 school year. Valencia received this honor for exemplary 21st century learning practices in preparing students for success in college, career and life.


Activities- The Valencia High School ASB has worked tirelessly over the past semester with the many activities at the school.  They have successfully planned and organized back to school registration, two major dances, home football and basketball games, as well as serving as ambassadors for the school at Back to School Night, Academy Night, and the district High School Showcase.  Each member of the Valencia ASB has volunteered over 120 hours of community service for the first half of the school year.


Athletics- Fall sports teams dominated Empire League play. Our Football and Boys Cross Country Teams  earned their third (3) consecutive Empire League Championships. Boys Cross Country finished 6th in  Division 1 CIF Finals and earned a 7th place finish in the CIF State Finals. Coach Brandon Frank was selected Orange County Coach of the Year. Senior Running Back Jahquon Speed was chosen as the Empire League's MVP in Football. In women’s athletics, our Girls Golf Team won their 3rd consecutive Empire League Championship. Senior golf player, Brittany Park qualified for the CIF-SS Finals and was chosen to the All-County Team. The Girls Tennis Team added to their dominance and  won their eleventh (11) consecutive Empire League Championship. Senior golf player, Emily Duong was chosen to the All County Team. Equally as impressive, our Girls Cross Country team won their second (2) consecutive Empire League Championship.


Arts- Our five orchestras, one hundred and eighty members strong, successfully performed their annual Winter Concert on December 14.  All orchestras also performed at the annual Orchestra Staff Appreciation Breakfast, where orchestra members played classical music and provided a wonderful international breakfast buffet for the entire Valencia staff.  Sinfonia, the highest level orchestra at VHS, performed several other important concerts throughout the Fall season at various school functions. This Fall the Theatre Art's Department revitalized the Comedy Sportz program with the financial help of anonymous donors. Students were coached by a professional in improvisation and have already performed three of their six shows.  The Fall Play production, Neil Simon's comedy, RUMORS was a hit with the audience.  Parts of it can be seen online in 360 degree virtual reality. The Valencia Tiger Regiment placed fourth in the 5A Bands division at the SCSBOA Championships. The Color Guard won first place, receiving the Outstanding  Color Guard award.

 

I’m very proud of our students and their achievements. I’m also proud of our teachers and staff and the role they have played in the development of the outstanding  programs here at Valencia High School. I can’t wait to see what’s next. GO TIGERS!!!

GO TIGERS!!!
