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

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

Three New Members Inducted

Three new members were inducted during our meeting on September 11.  Right to left, Mike Britt, Britt Sport Cards, Erik Alexander, manager Dwayne Lane's Arlington Chevrolet, and Brad Kihm, owner Cascade Krops.

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.)

Ruth Munizza to Receive Life Time Achievement Award-Sr. Center Benefit

Our Rotary Club has always had a special relationship with the Stillaguamish Senior Center.  When we were chartered in 1970 as the Marysville North County Rotary Club, two of our founding members, Bob Williams and Al Remington, were both in our club.  Bob was a hospital district commissioner and Al was the administrator of Cascade Valley Hospital.  The hospital had as one of its goals the creation of a senior center so that persons would remain active when they aged and would less likely need the hospital's services.

As a club of half Marysville and half Arlington residents, with the encouragement of Bob and Al, we took on as one of our service projects helping the senior center with its building project in what was then unincorporated Snohomish County.  Our club also started an endowment fund for the center and many of our members served on the center's board of directors.  Starting with Tim Simmons in about 1974, every senior center director has been a member of our club.  Fund raising efforts in the past for the senior center sponsored by our club included an annual Octoberfest, a night at the races, and a couple of casino nights with Rotarians as black jack dealers and workers.

For the past 8 years we have helped the senior center host the Life Time Achievement Breakfast.  This year's event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 17, with check in at 7:00 AM and breakfast at 7:30 AM.  Ruth Munizza  is this year's recipient.

If you want to know more about Ruth, here is a link to the Arlington Times' article in this week's paper:  http://www.arlingtontimes.com/community/274151911.html

The event, if you haven't attended in the past, is a real community building event.  Ruth will be the 10th recipient of the award given over the last eight years. Come learn what this community is all about.  Ruth is part of that village that has helped raise our children. Cory Duskin, Bryce Duskin and AJ Chase are examples of a some of her former pre-schoolers.
