VIKINGS ON THE 99.7FM AIRWAVES
The radio station, 99.7 FM - All The Hits visited Mills on Friday. After a lunchtime jam session, students invaded the station and took part in a High School Takeover broadcast. Vikings were able to experience being an on-air personality in the radio industry during this career exploration. Special thanks to College and Career Adviser Stephanie Wong and DJ Strawberry for making this happen.
Congratulations Viking Students Of The Month
Common Core State Standards
Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school. Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace. The California Department of Education helps schools make sure that all students are meeting the standards. Please click on the links below for more information about the standards. You can also visit the California Department of Education website to read more about the standards and the CCSS-related activities taking place in California.
