The Arts Finish Out Back to School Month

Music Director Jeff Swanson

Image

Arlington High School choir director, Jeff Swanson, has been in the Arlington School District for 35 years.

Jeff has arranged nearly 90 songs for performing groups, created jazz programs, 23 years as “Key Notes” jazz director, composed and performed music, sings and directs choir at church, and performs with “The Curators”.

Statistics about funding nonprofits:  72% of giving to non-profits come from individuals.  Religious organizations raise the most money from private sources.  80% of American households donate to nonprofit organizations.  The typical American household supports 5-10 charitable organizations per year.

Many music and arts programs at the schools in the Arlington School District for all ages.

Jazzmine jazz choir was renamed Flight when there was a change of leadership.

“In the next six years I would like to build a choir program with a focus on reading music and playing piano.”

Choir program is inclusive, a lot of the life skills students are part of the choir.

Budget cuts and economy trouble has meant cutbacks.  Choir and 5th grade band was cut from middle school .  Instruments have not been upgraded or replaced in the last few years.  Sound and lighting in the BPAC has not been upgraded.

Contribute directly to Arlington High Booster Club to support music and arts programs.  Can be a program sponsor and reach 6,000 people in a tax deductible way.

More than half the students at the schools participate in arts.  Studying music improves math and entrance exam scores.

Charity Events Highlight October

Our club has historically used funds we have raised to benefit kids and seniors.  As such we are an annual sponsor of the Arlington Education Foundation, the Cocoon House Evening in Silk Auction, and we helped sponsor both the Life Time Achievement Breakfast and Murder Mystery Dinner for the Stillaguamish Sr. Center through the purchase of linens and place setting for these two senior center events.  The Evening in Silk Auction is the evening of October 3, Tulalip Resort, the Murder Mystery Dinner is at the Senior Center the evening of October 18, and the Partnership 4 Kids Breakfast is October 24, Kent Prairie Elementary:

ImageThis is a fun event at the Tulalip Resort.  John Curly does a great job entertaining as auctioneer.

The Stillaguamish Sr. Center has a new fundraiser that had been scheduled last spring but was postponed because of the 530 slide.

Another event postponed from last spring benefits the Arlington School District and replaces the annual wine tasting event.

Senior Center Breakfast a Success

Image

Rotarians Jo, Nancy and Dave pictured above helping set up for the Life Time Achievement Breakfast event at the Stillaguamish Senior Center.  The Rotary Club has helped sponsor the event for the last nine years.  This year we helped the center raise more money because Rotary funds purchased linens and place setting that no longer need to be rented.  Ruth Munizza, a long time preschool educator, was recognized and over $15,000 was raised to help with programing at the Center.  Many Rotarian businesses and individuals provided additional sponsorships.

Athletic Director Tom Roys

Image

Here are the points that Tom made in the program provided by Breanne:

 High School Athletic Director, also math teacher, 26th year in public education 25 years with Arlington High Schools.  Seventh year as Athletic Director.

Two daughters, oldest is teaching math at Post Middle School and the other is a junior at Northwest Nazarene studying pre-med.

Have coached football, basketball, baseball, track, etc.

Wesco athletic conference is divided into three divisions.

Arlington Athletics Philosophy:  To assist our student-athletes to reach their full potential as students, athletes, and citizens.  To teach core values of hard work, discipline, and integrity through competition.  Development fundamental skills for lifelong recreational interest.

Fall sports:  Boys football, girls soccer, girls volleyball, co-ed cross-country, boys tennis.

Winter sports:  Girls and boys basketball, co-ed wrestling

Spring Sports:  Girls tennis, boys and girls golf, boys baseball, girls fast pitch, co-ed track and field, soccer

Funding:  Two different budgets, District (used for coaching stipends, game management, benefits) and ASB (used for equipment/supplies, uniforms, officials, athletic trainer, transportation).

Outside offerings:  Football, basketball, soccer, tennis, baseball, wrestling, volleyball camp.  Good for high school and younger kids to have that interaction with each other.

Coaches:  Good people, good role models, good communicators/teachers, sound fundamentals in content area, have a passion for their sport.

“Great coaching and great teaching go hand in hand.”

Facilities:  gym for volleyball, basketball, wrestling room, baseball fields, softball field, eight tennis courts, stadium for football, soccer, and track.

Track/football/soccer field has recently been reconfigured and upgraded.  Budget was $1 million, ended up costing $1.1 million.  JV softball field also upgraded.

Arlington was one of fifteen schools in the nation awarded $200,000 NFL grant toward synthetic turf on the field.  Also received ESPN grant for $25,000, one of four in the nation, has to go toward the stadium.

The field upgrade now allows PE on the field and keeps football off of other fields.  Kids feel better about themselves now

Visiting Rotarian From Leavenworth Exchanged Club Banners

A long standing tradition when you visit another Rotary Club is to take them a banner to exchange.  Here   , a visiting Rotarian from the Leavenworth Rotary Club gives are President Cindy his club's banner.  She gave him one of ours to take back to his home club.

Sticking to Principals

Image

Amie Verelin-Grubbs, principal at Weston High School, and Brian Beckley, Arlington High School Principal werethe program:

School district is moving toward requiring 24 credits to graduate and career and college readiness.

State Board of Education adopted new graduation requirements in September 2010.

Career and Technical Education department:

Purpose is to prepare students for industry entry level positions or to further their education in a college pathway in a high wage, high demand field in Snohomish County/WA State.

Programs must be aligned with need.

Through CTE students explore careers, identify a career goal, develop a high school and beyond plan.

When students leave school they have skills to enter workforce or enter post-secondary education.

The difference between CTE and other departments is there are advisory committees, has a leadership requirement, and demonstrates how learning is extended in the community.

The roles of the advisory committees are to advise, assist, and provide support and advocacy for quality CTE programs.

Two advisory committees, general  advisory committee (approve staff conditional certificates, approve new courses, overall oversight of CTE program) and program specific advisory committee (comprised of several representatives from a specific industry, role is to advise a specific teacher and program development, teachers meet with their PSACs a couple times a year).

Career and Technical Student Organization allows kids an opportunity to practice their leadership skills and compete.

Many opportunities for local businesses to partner with the school district (employer presentations, field trips, AHS advisory, career speakers, etc.)
