We had the luxury of having Yamaha Corporation of America for stop by Dale Junior High today to donate 22 new Yamaha keyboards.
Yamaha in partnership with Music For All- Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, presented students and teacher with keyboards to support their music education programming at the school.
The presentation event celebrated the culmination of the Yamaha "Share the Gift."
The donation of instruments will offer students the opportunity to practice their musical skills every day, rather than taking turns practicing a couple of times a week, as they had previously.
Here are a few photos of today's event.

We are taking it back today to 1967 in honor of #throwbackthursday.
Did you know that Anaheim High School participated in the first Super Bowl?
That’s right AUHSD was represented in the 1967 Super Bowl by the Ana-Hi Steppers as they marched onto the field carrying flags for each NFL team.
You can watch Ana- Hi-Steppers make their debut onto the football field at minute (12:12) in this YouTube video.
They were not the only Anaheim alumni to make it into the Super bowl history. Anaheim High School Alumni Association share with us that we have had other alumni attend the Super Bowl over the years. To read the full article and to get more information visit their website at…

The Anaheim White House Restaurant has been severely damaged in a fire and will close indefinitely. The 1909 Colonial-style mansion was converted into a restaurant now owned by Sir Bruno Serato, who feeds pasta each night to 2,000 "motel children" from the restaurant's kitchen, and has done so for more than a decade. Bruno is an Italian immigrant who came to the U.S. with $50 in his pocket and through hard work saved the money to open his restaurant 30 years ago. Bruno is known worldwide for feeding the children, finding housing for their families, and helping at-risk youth land jobs in the hospitality field. He even mortgaged his own home during the recession to keep his charity work going. Funds are being raised to support Bruno in rebuilding his restaurant at https://www.gofundme.com/AnaheimWhiteHouse
Help spread the word!

Cypress High School Teacher William Michael Davidson has just released "The Remnant," a science fiction book and the first of a three-part book series.
The Remnant is based on a "government that released a genetically engineered super flu that destroyed the genes believed to be the biological source of spiritual experience in an effort to rid the world of terrorism." (Goodreads.com)
He will have a book release and will be signing at Gatsby Books in Long Beach on Saturday, February 25th. The Remnant is now available in both paperback and Kindle.
Willam Michael Davidson has been working at Cypress High School since 2005 and said that “It's a great school and I work with great people. I consider myself truly blessed.”
We had a chance to ask him about what inspired him to write this three part series:
“One day I went home and I was watching something on the internet about the concept of a human gene that gives humans a "religious" experience. While there has been some talk about removing or altering this genetic component of humans to eliminate spiritual experience, I thought it was a great idea for a story. I immediately went to work.”
We provided links to both the book signing and Amazon for your enjoyment.

We have three teams from Lexington Jr. High, DandeLions, Cat's Meow, and LexiBots, that are awaiting the results of this past weekend's final competition to see if they will indeed make it to NATIONALS!
Through this year-long experience, students engaged in rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six-hour period.
Teams are competing for the top placement of their state and region. The top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD, for the National Finals Competition. The winning team will earn national recognition and scholarships.
CyberPatriot was created by the Air Force Association, that aims to inspire high school and middle school students to pursue careers in cyber security and other STEM disciplines critical to our nation's future.

Over the weekend our AUHSD students had a chance to participate in the annual Little Saigon Tet Parade. Our students at Oxford Academy Western High School (Anaheim, California) and Loara High School marched along with pride as an estimated 20,000 spectators watched.
The Tet Parade is the largest and most watched event of its kind outside of Vietnam. The event was broadcast throughout 50 states and around the world by 30 news/ media outlets. It is estimated that 3 million Vietnamese Americans both living here in the U.S.A. and overseas tuned in to watch.
Here are a few pictures of our students and other highlights of the Tet Parade.
