HHS honors 3 Poster Kids
Each year the administrative team at each of the five FUHSD high schools selects one boy and one girl from their senior class that personify that ‘best of the best’ of the senior class and who exemplify excellence, dedication, and generosity. This selection also extends to the Student Board Representative to the FUHSD Board of Trustees. A poster is made of each of these eleven Poster Kids and these posters are displayed in the FUHSD District Office and at the high school sites and serve as an excellent reminder to our community of the students that FUHSD is blessed to educate. This year's HHS honorees are seniors Nathan Mijares, Erika Yasuda and Cyrus Miremadi.
NEWS & EVENTS
All Night Party is a rite of passage for Homestead's graduating seniors. It is a safe alternative to open graduation events - our students are transported by bus to an undisclosed location where they enjoy a closed, fun-filled night that includes games, prizes, singing, dancing and more. It's their final chance to hang out together as proud Homestead Mustangs. All Night Party was started many years ago (too many to count) and is a gift to seniors in celebration of their high school years.
It takes organization and effort by a large team of parents who are willing to do a host of tasks: theme brainstorming, party planning, helping raise funds necessary to offset expenses that the student bids do not cover, setup, clean-up and actually staffing the different areas the night of the party.
We need your photos of our 2016 Graduating Class. New photos, old photos, happy photos, funny photos.....you choose. Upload to https://hhsanp2016.shutterfly.com/. You will need to request access and will get an email back with access info. Single person pictures are great but also upload pictures that have your Senior plus many other Seniors and label the photos with the names of the students that are pictured. We will use the photos for a video we will show on the bus to the All Night Party venue and at the end of the night at the after party at HHS. If you have any questions, email Trish Guerrieri at email@example.com
This coming August we will welcome Japanese students from Iizuka to our area, including high school students. These students are going to experience school days in Sunnyvale and Cupertino on August 22-24. Middle school visitors will attend school at Sunnyvale Middle School during their stay. Homestead will be hosting at least three. If you are interested in welcoming a student to stay at your home during their time here, please see the attached document for details with the link for the host family application.
The Homestead High School graduation ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 2nd at 3 pm. Information about parking, seating, etc. is attached.
All Juniors and Seniors attending Community College: EOP is designed to improve access and retention of historically low-income and educationally disadvantaged students on CSU and community college campuses. EOP students have the potential and demonstrated motivation to perform satisfactorily but they have not been able to realize their potential because of their economic or educational background. The program provides admission and academic assistance to EOP-eligible undergraduate students. In many cases, the program offers financial assistance to eligible students. Campuses tailor their programs to accommodate the needs of their student population.

Fremont Union High School District – home to Cupertino, Fremont, Homestead, Lynbrook, and Monta Vista High Schools – closely monitors student enrollment projections in order to best prepare for facilities, staffing, and course offerings for FUHSD students. Current projections indicate that while enrollment at most of the high schools is increasing, at Lynbrook High School student enrollment continues to decline. More information about this matter can be found at http://www.fuhsd.org/AttendanceAreaInfo.

Congratulations, Sarah!
Student Artist creates public art to beautify San Jose
Homestead senior Nick Ybarra is a 2016 Downtown Doors winner. His work Personas me Reunire will become public art downtown in San Jose. It will be enlarged onto a vinyl adhesive decal and placed on a utility door this June.
The Downtown Doors Commission had over 150 entries this year. Blank service and utility doors are used and selected artworks are enlarged onto vinyl adhesive decals and professionally installed. The work will also feature a doorbell which will play an audio file of the artist speaking about their work.
A video created by Nick was also selected for the Los Gatos Museum High School Competition. This work was selected out of 850 entries to be one of 53 exhibited in the recent museum show.
